Recently I put a question on this forum:

"System Restore Works With Error"

Got an answer and was asked to set "Best Answer". I did that but got a much better answer later.

Tried to "Clear Best Answer" and change it but did not succeed. Restarted the question, no success.

How do I proceed to change and add a more important tag ?

✔ Best Answer
willem1933,

For various reasons, you cannot set your own response as a best answer. I believe this is why you are not able to select any other answer in your thread for a best answer besides the one that is already marked. I did try clearing the best answer on your thread, and that functionality worked. However, like expected, I was only able to select that one response as a Best Answer. I have reselected it.

Thank You,
Justin

@justin,

by the way sometime the marker as "Best Answer" hides the answer itself or part of the answer (mainly formatted programming code) leading to unreadability.

IVO,

You mean the medal?

I might just take that out. I think the yellow background is enough. Thoughts?

Thank you, Justin, yes, it's the medal that affects formatted code only when posted lines are very long. So I don't like to pull you to remove the medal some poster may enjoy to award.

IVO,

Well, I had been thinking about removing it anyway, so this just got my attention a bit more... I think I'm going to replace it with something else. I'll look into that on Monday. If I can come up with something good, I'll go ahead and do it. I'll let you know here.

Thanks!
Justin

The lesson would be don't be in such a hurry to set a 'best answer'. But at least you did post the better information.

IVO,

I went ahead and highlighted it with green text and a checkbox. I think that is just as noticeable but not as intrusive.

Thanks!
Justin

Thanks again, Justin, the new look of "Best Answer" is indeed the best you can devise; just I would retain the post number in front of the "Best Answer" header to help pointing in referring to long threads.

IVO,

I tend to think you can figure it out by context, but, since its fairly minor, I decided to add it back.

Thanks,
Justin
