why would you vote your own answer as best answer? I've seen someone doing this all night.

  • Is someone trying to get on the list of "Top Answerers?"

  • that could be it...but i doubt it. I've seen some people have thousands of best answers so that would take alot of work to do. lol.

  • You can only vote for Best Answer if it's your question. So you are saying someone is asking a question just to vote their own answer as Best Answer? That's funny.

  • Some people do it when they see too many answers that disagree with them. They'll throw in a snotty answer and choose it as best in the middle of an argument because they think that means they win the argument.

  • Probably because they think they have the best answers.

  • Why ask the question in the first place then?
    Even with a zillion answers, I will begin at page one, read through all the answers, send personal messages to anyone who has touched my heart or helped a lot, and then choose the FIRST person to answer the best. I don't play favorites and I don't judge. I also don't ask very many questions, either. :)
