 (EDIT: Though I foresee this thread turning into a set\unset answer war of epic proportions! :P )

I'd like to give this a *bump* today. The reason being while looking at a forum on my mobile I used my fingers to enlarge the text and think I accidently clicked Set Answer while doing so. I clicked Not Answer but did I unclick someone else or my own Set Answer mistake? Perhaps an Are you Sure prompt on Clicking Set Answer will at least allow one to Cancel a Set Answer which is easy to do on a small mobile screen. This would help until one can see who the Set Answer person was - yourself or somebody else.

Maybe a tag at the bottom you can see if you're the person that set the answer?

Sorry, reference? We do track the Set Answer and know exactly who set what. The question is (no pun intended) who sees it? OP, author, everyone?


As per the +1, I still want to have this feature so you know who voted and where. Working on 2FA and other security things at the moment though.



Have you considered a -1?  I have often wondered if there shouldn't be a -1 button and if a post gets to a certain -ve number then the post is removed.





Worst Idea ever. Why turn the forum into a place where it becomes negative. 


It could easily be abused, and border on bullying. If you disagree with someone you should have to front up and explain why. 


It's already hard enough to express an opinion that doesn't match the crowd without being shouted down.
