In How can a contract run itself at a later time?, there are two answers which each capture roughly half of the answer.

They should be combined, but I don't want to steal anyone's rep, or anything.

Obviously I should cite the other answers, but is there anything I should be aware of before I add an answer combing the two?

  • One of the answers has been made a community wiki, thus solving the issue. This question is still pertinent for future reference, I think. Commented Jan 21, 2016 at 17:02
  • Does it devalue the reward point system? I.e. if we combine - or quote from one person, will it reduce their potential of being upvoted?

This has been discussed on the main Meta.SE here.

The general consensus is no, leave them separate. Although the case you mention, which is now community wiki, leaves the way open to merge if this community sees fit.
