I just wanted to run something by you guys.
It's about best answers.
As many or all of you know, if you help a member in the help and support forum, you can be awarded best answer by the person who asked the question.
How would you guys feel if this changed and best answers were instead set by best answer setters only?
As someone who helps out a lot in the help and support forum, I find it frustrating when certain members who spend almost ALL day sitting writing very basic, often rude answers, are getting best answer, while other people are sitting constructing informative helpful answers which takes more time, they miss out on the best answer because the person who writes a very basic answer gets in first!
I think best answers should go to 'The Best Answer'. It speaks for itself.
If a member asks for help and then gets a quick-fire reply and selects it as best answer, it gets set as best answer, without any screening.
I think this should chage.
Best answers should go into a queueing system to be approved by best answer setters and they can either approve the best answer OR override it and choose the ACTUAL best answer!
This would certainly encourage members to put more time and thought into their answers and make it a much more fairer system.
I know it might sound a little controversial but I think people getting best answer for ONE sentence is controversial!
Anyone with me on this????
Thanks for your time guys 😛
