When I comment on Ask MetaFilter , I do the best I can to give helpful advice to the poster, but my comments hardly ever attract many favourites and are almost never selected as best answer or endorsed by other posters. What do I have to do to get more favourites and best answers?
Marking the best answer in Ask Metafilter really doesn't mean anything, huh?
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.
I didn't know it was possible to mark your own comment as best answer. Am I correct in that you can't favorite your own comments either?
I would have just used the RSS feed, but I'm adamant about the "unanswered questions" thing, and the feed doesn't show best-answered threads. The Ask Metafilter RSS feed excludes questions where a best answer has been marked? That would be good if the purpose of the RSS feed was to expose unanswered questions to potential answerers, but if its purpose is to disseminate useful information, then best-answered questions could then presumably only be viewed through the site ... which defeats the purpose of having an RSS feed, doesn't it?
How about a 'Best Comment' option on MeFi, similar to the 'Best Answer' option on AskMe? [more inside]
I got an error trying to unmark an answer as "best" in AskMe.
Small pony requests: Can the Questions tagged with pages also include the best answer checkmark next to threads that have best answers? And maybe use the standard "X comments" link instead of "View this thread" by each thread?
Request: An RSS feed for Best Marked Answers page
In the "Best Answers" section of AskMe's Fantastic Posts page, would it be possible to add checkmarks next to best-answers-marked-by-everyone also marked as best-answers-by-the-original-poster?
Can you unmark an answer as a best question? Like you haven't had any caffeine yet, and your vision's all burry, and woops you clicked on the wrong one.
The [more inside] tag doesn't show up on the best answers part of ask.me. Just thought it should be pointed out.
