I've inadvertently answered a question along the same lines as a suggested answer that appears in the comments in the question Problem Invoking Batch from Button.
Bad etiquette on my part as the commenter hasn't had much of a chance to create an answer based on the comment. Maybe after several days of inactivity I'd have no issue with this, but ~4 hours is a bit to quick.
Is it possible to formally attribute the answer to the commenter so they can get the points? I.e. I basically make the answer appear as if they created it, maybe with edits from me.
Or, am I better off switching to communitywiki or deleting my answer if the commenter posts a separate answer that covers the same thing.
I know it only comes down to imaginary internet points, but I don't want to deter others from participating in the site. That said, I'm reluctant to delete a possible answer that might help someone in the future.
