Would you delete a question you posed if it had 156 answers and 2, 404 views so far when ...?


I need feedback as I had recently posed a question which, apparently, is a "hot" topic question, and I am thrilled so many answered the question and it has so far produced views into the thousands. So, what is the problem, you say? Well, apparently somehow a "Best" answer was chosen on my question, when I did NOT choose it! I am so upset about this, being so many have answered, when a person who just joined HP answered my question, and then her answer was chosen immediately as "Best" when I did not choose it! I had not planned on choosing a best answer anytime soon. It's not fair to all!

    Thank you, Genna. I know! I was just shocked about an answer being chosen as Best, when I did not choose it, and had not planned on choosing one any time soon. It is the principle of it, as it is putting words in my mouth so-to-speak. I will do so!

    Hi MizB, No, once a "Best" answer is chosen, it can't be deleted. I tried! LOL and I made a comment and apologized and asked her to repost her answer because I did not chose it. HP is checking on it now.

    Interesting! I did not vote that answer up, it came up the minute I hit the button and that is the second time recently.

    Hi John, I don't want to delete the entire question, but It seems you can't delete an answer once chosen as "Best", as I tried and did make a comment and apologized and explained I did not chose it. HP is checking though!

    Thank you, Chloe. Matt with the Team HubPages responded to my email and said they are checking into it. It's just a matter of principle.

    Thanks Eric. I don't want to delete the question at all, but I don't want it showing that I chose Best answer, when I did not choose that Best answer, and to be fair to all who answered the question. I hope HP can undo something I did not choose.

    IT HAPPENED AGAIN ON THAT SAME QUESTION??? Again, I did not choose Best answer yet, but there is an answer saying it was chosen as Best! Will contact HP Team once again. This is growing wearisome.

    That is my understanding too, Dashing ...I have contacted HP, but have not heard back. It seems once a "Best" is chosen, you cannot delete that answer, as I have tried and asked the person to repost. Maybe there was some sort of glitch that day?

    Yes, I have contacted HP, but no answer yet. A techy person on a forum suggested I change my password as it seems it has been hacked. There is no way I chose a Best answer as I had not planned to do so anytime soon. It is the principle of it ...
