Several Times I received apologies from one or another question-asker, saying that they had clicked on the wrong key while choosing the most helpful answer. I guess it is rather difficult to click on the right key. I am quoting one e-mail as follows:
An asker has added a note to a question you answered
or are tracking.

Term: Okura floor
Pair: English > Chinese
Field: Other - Tourism & Travel

Sorry I clicked on the wrong key. Actually I have chosen the
mostly unlikely answer?
Believe me, such things happen quite a lot. When I was prompted to click and choose an answer to my question, I was reluctant. It is not easy to click on the right key. And once clicked, alas, it is not reversible.

Hi Jan 18, 2005

Unfortunately, it happens. But in this case you should contact a moderator, and the problem may be solved. In case both asker and the author of the chosen answer have nothing against, the question may be un-graded by the moderator, and the correct answer chosen.

Dear Lu Wang, several months ago I raised the question of non-friendly Grading Page interface:

I still think the interface may cause a lot of occasional and unintentional mistakes (like the one which you had described).
