Help please. 

Not the first time, my moderator write me about problem with best answer. Earlier, just moderator or I choose the Best answer. But now it do someone else. Can you show me where I see this settings? 

For example:

Who can mark a “Best answer”:

  • the person who posted the question
  • Administrators, Community managers and moderators
  • user with the primary role “Super User”
  • everyone with access to Control Panel

What if we only want people from the backend to be able to mark a best answer? Is there a way to not allow the person that asked the question to do this?

Hi @ninabam ,

Unfortunately I don’t think this is possible and it technically defeats the purpose of the Best Answer feature, as well as acting like a massive community wrecker. You could consider adding this as an Idea though.

However, once a Best Answer is initally assigned to a thread, only Moderators and above can re-assign it.
