New Best Answer Feature

6 posts in this topic

Hey, we're excited to announce a new feature, that we believe will make the message boards more useful than ever.

The new feature is called "Best answer". This enables the topic starter and moderators to mark a post as the best answer.

This screen shot shows a typical question topic and the best answer the user or a moderator has flagged. At the top of the post, the best answer is displayed and a button that will take you right to the best answer. This is especially useful, for when you find an old topic, with the same or similar question to one you have. You'll instantly see what was deemed the best answer, rather than having to read the entire topic, which can often be pages.

Looking at the forum view, you'll see that the answered topic has a badge that when clicked takes you to the flagged post.

You can also quickly filter the forum list to remove answered or unanswered topics. This will be really useful for those of you who like to be super helpful. It will also come in handy for Brandy in The Regimen forum too.

When you've posted a topic and somebody answers your question, that you consider answered, click the mark solved button. This won't apply to all topics, such as some discussions but it will prove very useful, non-the-less.

We hope you enjoy the new feature and make good use of it. Please let us know what you think, your feedback as always is important.

Paul

Hey, fantastic feature. I'm pretty sure that ALL my answers will be marked 'best answer'. Right everyone? RIGHT? ;)

After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.

Would it be possible to create a worst answer feature as well? Or a most ambiguous answer? I think these would help a ton. And by help, i mean serve absolutely no purpose


80%-20% Alkaline forming vs Acid forming Diet

`Organic~
I don't consume:
*Dairy
*Whole grains
*Refined sugars
*Table salt
*Vegetable oils
*Processed/Fast foods
*Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs)
As well as the pesticides/herbicides that come with them

My philosophy: Less externally, more internally

Even taking long hot showers in chemically treated tap water is too harsh for acne prone skin

(And that's without a face wash)

This site is absolutely loaded with info on curing acne internally

Apparently one of the side-effects of "alkaline-forming" diets is extreme sarcasm.

............

My knee-jerk reaction here is "please don't turn us into Yahoo Answers." I'm a bit of a minimalist when it comes to forums. But I suppose that is unfair. Sometimes older threads with lots of responses can be difficult to wade through. While I still prefer to read the whole thread and take in all opinions, having an at-a-glance feature could be helpful. I definitely like the fact that the OP gets to choose best answer (as opposed to voting, or moderators, or something).
