How to award red ribbon in "Ask A Question"

Reply Fri 7 Jan, 2011 11:19 am
I was wondering how this works when you want to award a red ribbon, when you choose the selected answer to your question.

I don't see a link anywhere. Confused

if i remember correctly, there should be a select answer button (with the reply and quote button)

did you use the ask a question or the start a discussion link, the select answer is only in ask a question

this is a Question -- see the tabs above Reyn's avatar.

Reyn, you should see a place on this page to select the best reply to your question...

@Region Philbis,
What tabs?

Look at the top of the page - you can ask a question or start a discussion.

Most of us start discussions.

Last I knew, questions would be cut at some point. I don't say that is true now, just what I read once.

He's referring to the tabs under the thread's title. There is a tab that reads "Read Question" and "Reply to all".

When it is posted as a discussion, it reads "Read Discussion" and "Reply to all."

That's how you can tell what type of thread was started by the originating post and whether there will be a ribbon award option for the orignating poster to award to a response. The ribbons are only available to question type of threads.

Here's a screen shot of a thread that was started as a Discussion thread. Notice the difference? The tab under the thread title here says Read Discussion.

Ah!!!! The penny drops!

The "Select Answer" is in one of the green shaded boxes.

Thanks to BFN and all!
