I have some questions with selecting the best answer for my questions

I am new to CM and am not sure about everything.Like when I select the best answer to my question do I need to leave them a message letting them know I did or will it show up on their profile that their answer was selected by me and am I suppose to give them bonus points and if I am how do I do that.

  • CM will sens them a message automatically, even if you posted anon. In that case it will so up from CM stating they were chosen as best answer. If you used your screen name, the email will show with your name.

  • All you have to do is click Best Answer, and CM handles the rest! Be aware that it closes the question to more answers, so I you want more answers, hold off.

  • It sends them a message from you stating that you chose them for best answer, with a link to the question.

    When you are able to post anonomously (you must be level 16 I believe), if you decide to post a question anonomously it will send a general message from the CafeMom team and will not list your name but will state that they were chosen for a best answer and will link them to the question it is for. But your name is never given out in that circumstance. :)

  • Ok, what is "anon"? anonomously? I am guessing anonymously. I am so confused. My mind can't stand the abbreviations and the misspelled words. I think I had a stroke in January and so much of what is said makes no sense to me. My mind just won't work out these abbreviations and misspelled words.
