answerers, read this please RRS feed

  • It's no great thing but i've to notice frequently that "answerers" - as the name implies? - are a bit inclined to mark their contributions as "answers" even if that isn't true and many people after their posts continue questioning the same issue over and over. And apparently not because they didn't read or understand the "answer" - there may be exceptions as well -, but because the "answer" didn't get the point, answered a question that wasn't asked, etc. You know, this point is of a certain importance since many users will suppose the "answered" issue as cleared, thus not reading it anymore for other solutions, etc. And no, I won't give examples because this could be misinterpreted as ad personam, which doesn't interest me at all. I hope you understand my intention.

  • the question "asker" is able to, and should, unmark a response that doesn't really answer the question.
    oftentimes, the "asker" never returns to the thread to mark an answer, so whichever is selected, remains.
    other times, the "asker" will return to thank the responders and mark their own 'thanks' post as the answer.
    it is what it is...
