A pretty simple idea, but one that eminated from a lot of discussion on this thread and my reply on page 9.
Any post that has been marked as the 'accepted solution' should be moved to the top of the page, just underneath the OPs post. This has several benefits:
1) It encourages people to write well thought out answers, rather than one word or shorter replies that are not of as much value.
2) Where one word replies are all that are needed (and may therefore be marked as the accepted solution), they stay at the top of the page.
3) Anyone coming to the thread late or via the search facility will see the accepted solution straight away (without having to click a link that takes them to it).
EDIT: When I proposed this idea, I should have said 'copied' to the top, rather than 'moved' to the top, for reasons provided by fellow giffgaffers in the comments below.
This idea is a duplicate

Is GG up for transferring kudos?
Okay, thanks for the shout, always worth a shot!
Excellent idea , If it is a duplicate It's still worthwhile ....
Hey guys. I agree that this does duplicate an element of the other idea, however for me it is clear that the other idea has gained no support because it suggests organising posts so that those with the highest amount of kudos appear in a certain order. I imagine that people are not keen on that element. I would suggest that people kudos the original idea, however it would be going a step further and supporting something a little different.
In short, I'd argue that my idea is not a duplicate of the other idea, but rather a slimmed down (and suitably different) version of that idea.
