I'm trying to mark best answers in this thread, but only the first one took. When I click "mark best answer" on any of the others, it acts as if I clicked on the post time.

Odd. Now one of the others is marked, too. I am so confused.

This happened to me the other day, I suppose we should be more patient.

I think the best answer stuff is cached, and I'm not reseting it when you pick new ones -- so you have to wait until the cache gets refreshed every 5-10 min for the update to "take".

Yeah, I had a similar wonky problem when I had to switch a best answer choice on one of my questions. It took a few minutes before the change showed up for me, even when I did a hard refresh on the page.

This is something that should probably go into the FAQ, as I see it *all* the time in askme threads ("I'd mark you as best answer but it doesn't seem to be working"), and I'm sure I've seen it here a couple times as well.
