Well...does this deserve a post?

How can this be possible? Mar 20, 2003

Just curious, two questions dawn on me.



- First, how did the asker keep track of his/her own posting?



- Second, most e-mail systems do not keep e-mail messages current after 30 days. They are automatically shut off.



So, my question is How to explain the miracle ?...

Could you inquire about this with the asker?



Congratulations any way...

Most likely the answer was graded automatically based on peer agreement.

Congrats! Mar 20, 2003

I rather do it now, as in two more years, I\'m afraid I won\'t remember to congratulate you!

but seriously, folks... (and a little beside the point) Mar 20, 2003

Just recently in the PL-EN pair there was an initiative to go back all the way to the beginning of proz questions and award agrees to all unanswered questions (award them sensibly, of course) to force the robot to award points to answers with most agrees.

Then again, somebody\'s conscience might have moved them and they went back to award the points. It\'s like a little Christmas gift, right?

Answer to Sandra Mar 20, 2003

Hi Sandra



Through the KudoZ page you can reach your questions, and see the graded and ungraded ones. I think this is the way the asker knew she had \"forgotten\" to answer.

This is the most plausible explanation, and also confirms that the asker was a ProZ member. Non-members do not have a KudoZ page to go through, and KudoZ points are unfortunately lost forever when they don\'t grade answers.



Even in the latter case, as Matthew suggested, Quote:

... there could still be a chance for late-coming peer graders to award belated points, and make someone a happy soul like you.
