    Who is supposed to pick the best answer to a question we post?

    On my Q&A page the questions are listed and 'choose' is at the end of the question. So I thought I was supposed to select the answer. Now I just read a question that asks 'what do you think of someone who chooses the best answer to their querstion?' Call me confused. Someone please clarify and thanks.

    After my Q has been out there a while and I've had some interaction about it, I am the one who chooses the best answer to my question. I've assumed this is the way it is to be done. Will be interesting to see some other responses you get and see if my assumption is correct. LOL! smile

    Only the person who asked a question can select a best answer. We do this inside our own account, under Q&A, My Question Statistics. In the Best column, pick Choose. Scroll down to the answer you think is best, and choose "Select as Best Answer." This cannot be undone.

    I think perhaps you misunderstood the question that confused you. I believe the person who wrote it was assuming that the chooser was the person who asked the question in saying "chooses the best answer to their question." That is, the person asked the question, it is theirs. Some people who ask a question also choose a best answer to their own question. I hope this helps.

    I don't see an option for "select this as best answer" to this question, but I do on the questions I ask. I always assumed that the person who asks the question is the only one who can select a best answer.

    Thanks for asking that since I've asked questions, I don't think I've ever chosen a "best answer", actually, yes I have.  But I don't know if there is a reward for the best answer, so I don't see the point but if just in case there is, Choose me!  Choose me!  JK  LOL

      Rosana, there actually is an acolade for being choosen 10 times for giveing the best answer, so you are wise to want to be chosen! smile
