Best answers set ONLY by best answer setters!

By: smithster225225 | 24-07-2018 11:06

As we all know, best answers are mega important for payback. The more best answers, the better your payback.

I think the current best answer system is flawed.

Currently, it's the member who posts the question that can set the best answer.

I propose that this should change!

I think it would be better to have best answers set ONLY by official best answer setters.

Currently, a member who posts the question can choose a best answer and it is automatically applied without any screening. I think that when a best answer is chosen, it should go into a queue for a best answer setter to either accept it as best answer or choose the answer they find best for that thread as they see fit.

Maybe even remove the best answer option all together and have only a kudo button?

1. This will DEFINITELY encourage members to post better answers!!!!

2. Members who take time to compose a well thought out, thorough and relevant answer, get the credit they deserve

3. This will stop best answers being set that might not necessarily contain the correct information

I know my idea might be controversial, BUT, when you think about it, surely the best answer should get 'Best Answer'

:P

Hi,

Its an awesome idea but I do feel the person asking the question should be able to set what answer helps them. The report button is there for anything that does look a miss.

I think this works :)

I'm all for a new best answer system. It does seem to be best answers hardly ever get set, and if so to the wrong poster.

Any thoughts?

i like us giving best answers but still I love the fact setters giving because most people that past a question or create a thread won't put up any best answers themselves
