I can't split my points

Hi - I'm trying to split points on this thread but on two occasions I've not been able to do that. Only a best solution option appears.


Can you advise how to resolve this? I usually see the option to reward for an assist but this wasn't present in this question. Is there a reason why?

Many thanks,

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Ah - it seemed to have split 50/50. Is it no longer possible to decide how you split points? Thanks for the help  John, Eirman

Yes, the new method of closing questions does the split for you.
