I have notice that there is some people who uses thank you instead of accepting an answer


This guys has 38 question and not a single answer is accepted

I have recently give one answer to this user

How do Iā€ Pass variable between .phtml files?

He uses thank you instead of accepting my answer.

What should we do with this type of situation, and it is also not good thing for MagentoSE

I think once they got solution they need to accept someones answer or Else they have to put their own answers

    I'm just starting to answer questions on here and am also noticing that marking an answer accepted seems to confuse people :)

One thing is clear. You cannot force people to accept answers if they don't want to.
But you can encourage them (but avoid nagging) by leaving a comment under the question or under the answer that should be accepted telling the OP to mark the answer as accepted.
That't the best you can do about it.

  • That's their choice to either accept or give only thank you. Marius

It would be nice from stackexchange to send a reminder to those users like Amazon or eBay does?
