  • Hi,

    The moderation guidelines for marking answers does cover some of this:

    I think these guidelines were written for community members (like myself) rather than CSGs though.

  • In that thread a reply has been proposed as an answer. I see no harm in that, the comment seems correct. And no points are awarded. Also nothing has happened in the thread for 6 days (until the reply was proposed as an answer today), so this is a way to nudge the OP, to get them to mark what they feel is the best answer.

  • If you read the question that reply is in response of a comment not original question. Yes no points awarded just wait couple of days and it will marked as an answer...this I show in sharepoint related forum things work. If he want to nudge then why not propose the real answer? I just quote one example there are many others. Btw thanks for ur reply.

    Please remember to mark your question as answered &Vote helpful,if this solves/helps your problem. ****************************************************************************************** Thanks -WS MCITP(SharePoint 2010, 2013) Blog: http://krossfarm.com

  • It's up to you to cancel the mark of answer or proposed answer if you think it doesn't make sense.

    No. They are supposed to be following those guidelines too.

  • I cannot speak to the moderation in the forums Waqas refers to. But in the Windows Server forums (Directory Services, Windows Server General, Windows Server 2012 General) I have been impressed by the CSG moderators. Being a moderator myself (in other forums) I know it can be lot of work, for little credit. But the Windows Server moderators seem to follow the rules and give very good responses (well researched, often with great links). They first propose answers and ask if there is any update, then come back after 5 to 7 days if there has been no further activity to mark answers. That is not easy to do (going back over old threads). Also, they seem quick to give credit to others for good answers, rather than themselves.

  • First of all if they propose a reply an answer then I don't have option to un propose it as I am not moderator or the person who asked the question. 2nd, I have no issue if they want to close the thread...but they should read it and understand it. In sharepoint forum they were doing without reading it... I think they propose the reply as answer if it is from csg or moderators... In many cases I noticed if one person reply to the question but later if MSFT csg respond on the same thread with almost same answer then they mark there own reply as answer. I can point out the things can't control it...:(

  • Only if you're an originator of the thread or moderator/answerer. If you're just a regular user in the forum, you would not be able to unpropose/unmark the answer you don't think is correct for the thread. The only option left to independent user is to leave a comment, but I don't think anything good will come from it.
