Hi

I posted two questions recently and I have just been prompted to choose an answer.

The problem is, I do not think any of the entries should go on the glossary, and I do not think I have been given enough background (justifications for the choice of answer) to select an answer as very helpful; however, one of the answers has put me on the right track.

I would like to give 2 points to the person who put me on the right track and then enter my own translation of the term (different to all suggested) and a long explanation of my reason for my own choice.

Is this possible? How do I do it?

Thanking you

Best regards,

Marta

As far as I know... Sep 2, 2008

... the last decision on entering the translation into glossary: belongs to the answerer.
That means if the answerer wishes, he/she may re-enter or edit your entry.

Yes, it's perfectly possible. Sep 2, 2008

Select the answer you want to give the points to then edit the glossay entry as appropriate. You can add your explanation as a note on the question itself.

The answerer is only invited to add the glossary entry if you don't do so.

There is a third option Sep 2, 2008

There is still the option for you not to choose any of the answers given,and that's how you make a question just_closed.Then nobody will be awarded any points.

Or is it? Sep 2, 2008

I think then it is not obbligatory to make a KOG entry.

Beside the point(s), so to speak Sep 2, 2008

Marta clearly said that she would award two points to the answer that had put her on the right track (and rightly so) so your comment seems to be "beside the point(s)"

Marie-Hélène has said it all, I believe.

The answerer is invited in both cases Sep 2, 2008

The answerer is invited in both cases whether the asker enters it or not.

There is a Gloss option for the host of the selected answer.

no chance Sep 3, 2008

Hi

Thank you very much for all your comments and help.

Unfortunately, it did not work.

After quite a lot of thought and even if some may think it was only a small change, I wanted to give 3 points and modify "ideas" to "pensamiento".

I gave the points, I then made the change and then pressed "select/add gloss", and, surprise!: the gloss entry was not modified (it remained "ideas religiosas" and was added to the gloss as such).

So it seems we can:
- select it to give the points and stick to the answer given
- leave it open hoping someone has the same idea as you on of these days
- close it and enter a gloss entry yourself

Thanks anyway

Best regards,

Marta
