It would be interesting to see who pressed the "Set Answer" button for a forum post just like one can see who supports a forum post. I presume it is not always the person who started the forum who selects an answer.

I've asked Mauricio about the Set Answer before as I often suspected that I accidentally hit the button while scrolling with my thumb on the mobile.


The answer then was "Hmmm. No we don't track individual actions like this one. But if you set an answer the page would refresh showing the reply with the yellow border so you would know it straight away..." 


Straight away varies on some of the connections but if I think I could have done it I just unset. If it wasn't me then someone else will set it again :-D 



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.
