What is the general consensus for accepting an answer when there are multiple, near identical answers posted at the same time?
Not my question, but the question "Can a Bard use an arcane focus?" has 2 answers that are near identical (and in my opinion both correct) and were posted within minutes of each other, which I would say are within typing time so aren't copies of each other.
I, of course, upvoted both, but the question asker will end up accepting one or the other. That means one will miss out on being an accepted answer, which people value highly, and which people searching for answers to the same question will see as correct.
So I was just wondering if there is a general best practice on RPG.SE for accepting one answer over another. I have no particular reason for asking; I just thought it was an interesting situation.
