Sometimes I find that there's good points in different answers (and comments), so I wonder if it's okay to create my own answer (if I'm the one who originally asked the question) based on those, and accept it. Here's an example where I'm tempted to do so.
It's generally fine depending on the circumstances, although it's probably not necessary on that question, since there's only two answers. I'd upvote both (disclamer: one of them is mine :) ), and accept whichever one you actually ended up using (looks like you already did that part).
There's a main meta post about consolidating answers; it looks like the opinion there was to take the best answer and merge in parts of other answers if you like, rather than creating a whole new answer; you're welcome to merge my answer into the accepted answer if you like
