It would be nice if there was an option to specify any post as an answer for a thread (specifically in case it was answered in a different thread already, but it's not appropriate to merge the two threads).

As a bonus, it would be nice to be able to link the question to the specific post in another thread, or just to the other thread itself (obviously one could respond with a new post linking to the other thread and then mark that one as the "correct answer", but if it was a native function, it seems like it would be cleaner). Something like this:
