so if there's a 'first'

so if there's a 'first' prize medal (best answer) is there a silver (second best) and bronze (third best) medal too? Cause otherwise wouldn't it be better if the icon was just a medal, without the '1' on it? :?

In the immortal words of Joseph Jackson "Second place is first loser". No medal for #2.

Now go sit down over there and contain your OCD for a minute. Wink

Doesn't seem to have been

Doesn't seem to have been too popular a feature because I think I've only ever seen one of those icons in a thread.

Hmm. I marked your post as "Best Reply" and it didn't show up. Maybe it doesn't work anymore. :shrug:

Oh, yes. I think that's what I meant to say but I can't be sure I didn't get any sleep last night. Smile

Can we not refer to it in the sense that it is a 'prize' as it gives out the wrong connotation.
It's purpose is intended as a marker to point out the reply that best answers the question and that users can see as a marker directing them quickly to relevant info especially if it's a long thread which may take time to sort/read through; but Tony might correct me on this point?

Then again it does look like a prize rosette, it needs photoshopping.

Abso-bloomin'-lutely!!! I second that! Laughing out loud

Noticed quite a while ago that the icon went missing (about the time Wolfie got mentioned in despatches) but never did like that icon and I thought it was by design - the fact that it went missing, I mean...if we can't have the kitten can we have a ribbon across the top RH corner or something?

Nah...it's gotta be a kitten. With hearts. Or hearts and flowers.

The icon is still missing, I

The icon is still missing, I set T's as best answer. Maybe there's a bit of AI that has overruled me. Smile

Just thinking, could there be an icon for bad answers? I think I found one,

Smile. Just sayin'

Cheeky!!! Are you saying my duck should be the icon for the bad answer or my answer is the bad one? Laughing out loud

'sides you shouldn't be able to set the best answer, it's up to the thread starter - or is this another case of mods can do anything? Wink
