Default Voting Best Answers

Hi everyone!

Ok, so the best answer feature was added in after I took a break, so I don't know if this suggestion has been made before. But I think that we should be able to vote for best answers so that people that have been wondering the same thing can easily find the answer without looking through the entire thread. Some people that start Somebody Help! threads don't choose a best answer, so the thread closes when a mod or admin sees that it's answered, or when it has been unposted on for 2 weeks.

Here are my ideas for voting for best answers:
-When a person creates a thread, they have the option to have the thread voted for a best answer.
-That option will include something like how many days a poll will remain open. By that, I mean that the voting will open after the selected number of days the thread opener selects.
-The maximum time a thread can be opened for voting is 4 days.
-To know that a thread is in voting, there will be a "In voting" thing next to the "Unanswered" so it will look like this: In Voting: Unanswered Thread name...

Please let me know your thoughts on this, I have looked through this section but I haven't found this suggestion yet. If I had missed it, please let me know. Thanks!

This seems like a pretty complicated process. The question is...does WI have the capibility and the digital structure to handle this type of process? What you are describing sounds like yahoo answers.

It kind of is. I'm not sure if it does, but the process is kind of like the polls. There is an option when you create a poll that allows you to select the number of days the poll can remain open, and then after that number of days the poll closes but people can still continue to post on the thread, I believe. I got some of it from Yahoo Answers, but I also got it from the number of unanswered threads that are closed before the 2 weeks that don't have a "best answer" but there are a lot of good answers for that particular thread.

This is just a suggestion though, I'm sure there's room for improvement for this suggestion Thanks for posting!

Best answer: From the large number of wrong answers that I see on some threads, voting is not the way to choose the correct answer. You can be sure that the mods closing a thread have read through all the answers. If a mod closes a thread, it is because the person asking the question has not chosen a best answer for some reason. The title will still read Unanswered, but the answer will be obvious if you read through the thread.
