Can the thread starter still select their own posts as Best Answer in a thread?

Shh stop telling everyone my secret methods to get best answer. :p

 

In all seriousness I've seen people mark their own post as best answer. :laugh:

How is joined date more important than post counts or location for that matter?

I'm for the change. I see no issue with it personally.

Why not have Best Answers & Post Count?  Post Count actually means something for many people. :pinch:

Maybe we should replace best answers with Likes then.

So how do you vote for a Best Answer? Or does it happen automatically based on the number of likes a post receives?

The post count doesn't matter at all as far as I'm concerned. You can have someone with 500 posts giving better technical answers than someone else with 110,000 posts.

 

So yes, good move.

The OP is the one who decides the best answer for the thread. :)

I'm intrigued to know what it means to people? I've seen people with a high post count that just post gibberish, and others with an incredibly low post count, but a majority of their replies have been well thought out posts. Do you treat someone with a high post count differently than someone with a low post count? I'm genuinely asking, as I really can't see any benefit to post counts.

Right. But this isn't just a forum for tech help.. It's much bigger than that.. This isn't TechNet. They should simply show both.
