I hate it when I can only reward only one collaborator

Fortunately, now I see that I am not alone in stating that:
1) getting quality help in minutes is a bliss
2) this is a direct result from how things are set on the site: kudoz, the system in general, etc.
So I very much stand for status quo, long live King Kudoz!
However, I might confess that many times there is more than one answer that for me deserves reward. By rewarding one I cannot express my appreciation for the solution the other has offered.
It would be lovely, that one could award more than one answer (split scores perhaps?)
The other thing I don´t like that much, is this option to thank somebody if they supported the solution they ´d offered. This, IMHO, might generate alliances that do not help to achieve the two main goals, again for me, that all this should have:
speed and quality
just ramblings, my friends

My best reward is to read something like \"Thanks to everyone. You´ve all been great help\".
BTW, What´s your name? I forgot to ask you that Friday in BA...
PD: wasn´t this the Spanish forum?
No, it wasn´t.

| Thanks to all || Jul 11, 2002 |
I agree with Leonardo. When you have to choose, simply pick the answer that was most helpful and extend a sepcial thanks to one or two or all of the others.
We don\'t help just to get points; we help because we are all in this together.
As for the thanks-for-an-agree: I am just conceited enough to believe that the \"agree\" is extended because the person thinks I have the best answer, not because the person wants to ingratiate him/herself with me. And when I thank for the support, it\'s not because I hope the person become my special friend. Objectivity is expected, called for, and probably forthcoming. I trust you and others to be objective, and I expect you to trust men and others to be objective.

I didn\'t mean \"men,\" Imeant \"me.\"
| Well, I do sometimes agree to say "Hi" to someone BUT... || Jul 11, 2002 |
...only if I truly think his/her answer is adequate. And sometimes I even refrain myself from sending any comment (even when MANY peers have agreed to a response) because the question is totally out of my league, whether or not the answerer is a friend of mine.
| I, too, have found myself in that awful predicament... || Jul 11, 2002 |
Well Aivars, I am comforted in the idea that I am not alone in this frustration. I first experienced the uneasiness of the situation when I had to select answers to some of my questions. In one case, one of the answerers provided me with excellent insight while the other one, featured a well-documented response.
( I was unable to do so. (
I felt really bad and helpless... I wanted to gratify both with KudoZ.
I agree with the principle of splitting the score, but our dear Henry will probably have to raise it to 8 or 10 points in those particular instances. That way, each deserving answer will get 4/4 or 5/5 points and be equitably rewarded.
I personally think that an excellent answer should be awarded more than 1 or 2 points (4 being the decent minimum, so far).
Let\'s hope that pretty soon, in KudoZ kingdom, more loyal servants will be rejoicing!!!
