certified answers!

I'm not an admin here, but I do have a feature request:

Ask Fedora is proving to be a great resource for user support. Along the way, I think we have an opportunity not only solve the users' problems, but to guide them in best practices. Some answers may work, but just aren't the best way - the obvious examples of disabling SELinux or firewalls come to mind.

Providing a mechanism for trusted contributors to make a distinction between functional and optimal solutions adds to the quality of the site as a whole. Comprehensive answers can more reliably be referenced when marking questions as duplicates or as references, cutting down on confusion and clutter. Users can be more confident following an answer, with the knowledge that the solution has been verified to some degree and stamped with some kind of authority.

Some badging could be added around the concept, to provide incentive for writing quality answers.
