Does best answer option still exists?

Recommended Posts

In an earlier version of the forum it was possible to tag a post as "best answer" and then automatically getting it displayed as first post of the thread. Is that still possible and if yes, how is it done now? With a terrible long thread it is difficult for readers to find specific post e.g. containing the latest download links.

It does not.  That was payware and I requested purchase and installation a couple of years ago and then followed up several times but there have been too many other high priority things to do.  Tom had bought many addons like the best answer but they are no longer compatible with the latest version installed  Some were never updated for the latest version.  I will try to keep some pressure on for the purchase and installation.

Thanks for the answer. It was a useful function which would be nice to get back.

Tom had many payware apps that had to be approved again due to the major website upgrade made by Invision, our website provider.  I have asked to have them all reinstalled but no approval. We looking at  getting a  new theme that would be more related to  flight simulation too. Updating the AVSIM Guides is on the list.  According to Google Analytics we get over a million hits a month so there is a lot of interest.

The reactions to a topic or post currently show the good posts so it is sort of a replacement for Best Answer App.

Hi Jim, 

I will survive without - I understand your point on the reactions, but the trouble appears when you have 300.000+ views and 62 pages like I have in my Global AI Ship Traffic thread... Anyway when I am ready with next update I will clear and edit the first post in the thread and put the service messages there.... 😄 Thanks for your continued efforts to maintain and develop the site. 

Henrik
