When I ask a question, I get really great answers, but some are just extra helpful. How do you Dc mark answers as being helpful? I'd like to do this. People mark some of my questions as being 'helpful'. I looked at the cartoon instructions- ask a question-somebody reads it and they answer. Then I mark it as 'helpful. Fine, but I don't have any helpful buttons-tried to click on the profile-etc.
How do I mark a medical question as helpful?

Okay-on this question there was an app that asked if I found an answer helpful., below the commit app, vote up, and the report app. I often voted answers up, and I never reported anybody for any reason. Those that are answering this, I'm marking as helpful-it's part of an experiment. I don't want to play loosely with this app, but it's part of the experiment to see how this site works. So many of you have given me excellent info about medicines, etc. When I go to my profile-I can see a number of questions that I answered; then to the right of that it says how many answers have been helpful--a member clicks on that and it lists the answers. For some reason members have been very kind and voted many of my answers as being helpful.
So nice of you wanting to acknowledge others.
This is very simple. Go to the response and press the "vote up" symbol if the answer is helpful. If someone is very rude, swears or is inappropriate you can report them by selecting that symbol/statement.
To keep track of questions you like, you may answer. When done writing, it goes to an edit box for answers. At the bottom of that one you can select to be notified on the question and/or keep the question in your history. You can also choose one of the writers categories if that is something you would like to be notified about in the future when anyone writes and answers on that topic.
Comments stick with the question and following often depends on other friends who have answered to get notification for that.
I don't go further than that with the system, so perhaps there are other ways to do this. I do know that on your profile you can select questions by category for past history or go back to home page and select categories you are interested in,
My solution is start pressing stuff and see where it goes. :-). Karen
Hi Meyati. Sometimes, they will put a box at the bottom of your question & ask if this answer was helpful or not. I would just give them a thumbs up & make a comment that thank you,your answer was helpful. It would at least let the person who made the comment know. You might write the site at 'contact us' & ask them to put that box up for you. I think it is their way of monitring the questins asked if their are medically related & if the answers are helpful or not as it obviously doesn't appear on every question. Hope this helps... Mary
