I was just wondering, if we can have "Correct Answer +1" marking for the answers, same as the "like" button in facebook.

It will help others, in case if they have similar problem, instead of going through whole discussion, they can directly jump on to the best answer already choosen by others.

This is not the option we chose.
If you read the whole discussion you will learn much more from the tries and errors than just jumping to the "solution".

In OTN forum you would find tags like Helpful answer and Correct answer, the poster as per his/her wish tags the posts. And the helper gets some points too. But I don't have any opinion on it. Because I simply do not understand the point system at all. Michel is absolutely correct, by reading the complete thread not only is informative, but, also a lot of incorrect practices and myths are negated.
