Well I asked a question, someone with 1k+ rep provided decent information/answer though it could have been more detailed.
An hour later another with 37k+ marked it as a possible duplicate. The duplicate with answers were much more informative.
The thing is I was just going for a badge (5 Q's in 5 days) in asking the question and had no idea it was a possible duplicate.
I don't know if the guy that marked it as a possible duplicate will get points if I click the "yes this answered my question" button. Since he has so much more rep I'd rather give the first guy credits by clicking the check on the answer.
If I check answered and then acknowledge a duplicate do they both get the predetermined credits?
What policies are in place for this dilemma? What would you do?
