Having the "AskMe Tick" go up upon resolution rather than Best Answer? [more inside]
When and why did AskMe best answer highlighting change from light to dark? I fear change, and the effect is more jarring than I expected it to be. If this isn't something we can toggle, anyone have a Greasemonkey script?
Does the presence of a marked Best Answer in an AskMe keep it alive shorter or longer? [more inside]
I noticed that in this Ask Me thread
, the original poster marked one of his responses as best answer
Does this happen a lot and I've just never noticed it before? I'm not sure it's worth changing, just sorta ... odd.
Tiny pony request. On the AskMe front page, a question has a green checkmark next to it if any of the answers has been marked "best answer." If you look at your own history of AskMe coments, there's a green checkmark next to any of your AskMe answers that was marked "best answer." In that same history of your AskMe comments, why not have a green checkmark next to the title of any question in which there have been "best answers" by anyone else? [more inside]
Etiquette on AskMe OP's marking their own in-thread response as Best Answer? [more inside]
AskMe pony request: How about an option to receive an email notification when an answer you gave in AskMe has been marked best answer? Or, if notifications aren't a good idea for some reason, how about some way to quickly check (via your profile) which of your answers have been marked best answer? [more inside]
Best Answers on AskMe: If you mark ALL of them as "best," it's the same as marking NONE of them as "best!" [more inside]
When an AskMe question has a comment marked as a best answer, a little tick/check
appears next to the post on the front page. What do people think about making that tick a link to the first best answer comment?
Is it possible to make [Best Answer] work like favorites? You know, all AJAX-y? [more inside]
Apologies if this was discussed elsewhere, but... why is there a best answer
marked in an anonymous
My little pony: how much work would be required to turn the "contains answers marked as best" checkmark on the front page of AskMe into a link to the first best answer?
Any chance of a Best Answer pony? [more inside]
I see a check mark by this
question on the AskMe front page, but no best answer marked inside. [more inside]
New askMe guideline: Must have a theoretical "Best Answer".
is listed as having a best answer, but no answer is highlighted.
Just curious about something... when someone answers an AskMe question and it gets marked as one of the best answers, shouldn't that also count for them as being favorited by someone? Or... no?
Which AskMefi questions have elicited great responses or answers - the sort that just perfectly answer the question, or those where what seems like a long shot is serendipitously answered by the perfect person? Looking at the "metafilterhistory" tag, I found this
, but are there others?
has a "best answer" checkmark, but no best answer inside.
"Why does eating in a restaurant make me crap my pants?"
and 994 other
anonymous gems from the Anonymous Ask Metafilter archive. As AskMe readies for it's 1000th anonymous question, the community is hereby polled: How has the feature worked out for the community? Do you ever wonder how some threads
were resolved? And at the risk of seeming too voyeuristic, has anyone ever thought about writing fiction based on the scenario in an anonymous AskMe question?
On the "My Comments" page, is there a way to show if MY comment was marked best answer?
I'd like a way, beyond "best answer," to give feedback/kudos to users who offer exceptionally helpful AskMe answers. [more inside]
Pony: when browsing the archives of ask.me the navigation for pages says next page and previous page. Could it be changed to older posts and newer posts? Also the color of links in "best answers" is the same as the answer.
Being able to mark a best answer in AskMe is very useful. However, what are you supposed to do when you just can't decide which one is best?
In AskMetafilter, if the tags box extends into a highlighted "best answer" box, the two collide instead of readjusting for each other. This includes a text wrap-around. I demand perfection down to the pixel.
This Ask me thread
has the "Best answer" checked on the main page, but nothing is showing up in the thread. Just thought I'd let you know.
An ability to unmark "Best Answer", I have on several instances accidently clicked the link (it's such a big target). Even a confirmation page would stop this from occuring, I'm not alone right?
has a checkmark on the front page of AskMe, but no best answers marked inside. Opera on Mac OS 10.3.9.
You can't flag your own replies to an AxeMe (suck it, haters) as a "Best Answer." This sucks in those rare events you did not get your question answered satisfactorily and you want to leave a resolution for posterity.
so, are there differences between the posting limits (once per week) on ask.mefi and metafilter proper? In other words, once you've posted anywhere on the Mefi network, do you have to wait a week to post elsewhere, or is the posting limit unique to each area?
Also, it would be cool if "best answers" were tallied for each user, and posting frequency tied to it somehow. Or not. Please don't hurt me.
I did not mark this
as best answer. I really, really doubt I did it accidently which is why I'm listing it as a bug. No offense, the answer isn't bad, but the best? I wish to wait.
Is there a reason why I can't mark my own answer
as best in Ask MetaFilter?
I inadvertently marked a best answer on my Askme thread
. I would really like to be able to undo that. Possible?
Could the little check mark in AskMeFi be coded to link directly to the pertaining comment?
The best answer feature used in this AskMeFi question
seems a little disconcerting to me. For a question that's so subjective, is it really appropriate? I find it off putting.
Another pony is roaming free. It's now possible to mark great answers to questions you've asked on Ask MeFi. Details and screenshot inside.
I'm going to combine two questions into one here since they're related:
1. When did "mark as best answer" show up in AskMe? Sometime in the last few hours, if I'm not mistaken. What is the effect of marking something as the best answer? (Apologies if I missed an announcement)
2. Does asking a question, and then having it deleted, still use up your AskMe quota?
