Dont show accepted answers twice in forum thread

When the creator of a forum thread marks a post as accepted answear, this post is shown twice: One time as accepted answear, and another time in the regular post flow. This is a waste of space and confusing for users. Also IT people, since most of them are familar with the software from Stackoverflow and other Stackexchange network sites.


Sadly I can't upload screenshots here but Stackoverflow is a good reference for forum posts with accepted answears (that's in general also just Q&A). For example this question:


The answear from Harry is the accepted answear and got just displayed in the first place, which itself make totally sense if it's a question where the author select some post as answear. Connections still offers accepted answears, but display them two times in the same thread. Connections should handle it similar to Stackoverflow: Just display the recommend link in the accepted answear box like in regular posts. And remove the second one from the history.
