Did you know you can mark answers helpful?

By sMoRTy71 ·
One of the new features we added to Forums during the revamp was the ability to mark an answer "Helpful."

However, since the revamp, I haven't noticed many answers getting flagged as "Helpful."

Of course, this could be the age-old problem of people not giving feedback. However, I'm betting that we haven't done a very good job of letting you all know about it.

So, if you've asked a question recently, go to one of your answers and look at the top right of your post (in the little gray bar that says "Post 1 of X"). You should see a link that says "This answer helped."

If you click that link, that answer is flagged with a thumbs up icon so that others can quickly find the helpful answers.

By that time it will be Today, again (check your Cal tomorrow). Tomorrow is a day to late and today is to soon. It has to stay forever.

Edit: Mark me a helpfull comment tomorrow if you like.

I asked that that promo stay up a few days so that you all would become aware of the "Helpful" answer feature (which obviously needs to be retooled since no one has noticed it).

It should be gone tomorrow.
