Wrong Answer to Thread RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently answered a Question, in spite of my advice the OP marked his own reply as the Answer. I am not saying that I should get the 'Answered' status, just wondering if the OP marks his/her own thread as Answered, which is not correct, what is the point of trying to help out?

    How can other users report (or) propose that its the wrong answer?


    Happy to help ! Please mark threads as 'Answered', if it did answer your question. Or 'Vote Up' if you found it useful. Thanks !

  • I voted both of your posts. Looks like OP in this case didn't want to go with programmatic solution and just went his frustration. I think in this case he was not supposed to mark your response since he didn't use it.

  • Can you post the exact sample? 

    There used to be a sticky thread to correct such cases but it is no longer a sticky (probably expired).

    One possibility is to have a contact with moderator in that forum and let him/her know to correct such situation.

    I see such problems myself although not as often as it used to be. If I come across such a problem in a forum I moderate, I normally correct it.
