I don\'t know if this has happened to someone before, but sometimes you give your answer to a question and just after doing it you realize that you made a mistake, and you know that someone else gave a better answer, is there a way to:

a) Delete your answer

b) Agree that someone else is right and that your answer shouldn\'t be consider any more?



Thank you

Paula

Just post again. Oct 30, 2001

As far as I know, there\'s no way to delete an answer, but if I wanted an answer removed from consideration I\'d just make another posting to that effect.

use the comment function Oct 31, 2001

You can agree with the answer you like best and in the comment field admit that you had made a mistake... I\'ve been known to do that - always feels a bit silly, but I think it\'s better to be honest!

I've done that too Oct 31, 2001

I just thought that it may be helpful to be able to erase one\'s own bad answers...

The fateful "send" button Nov 1, 2001

Yes, we all do it. \"Send\". We do as we are told and ... oh, no! Too late, it\'s gone. It happens to us all. I don\'t think we can introduce a \"cancel answer\" button. Floodgate argument : for one honest person cancelling an answer they regret having posted, three or four others would withdraw their answer after having seen a whole host of other answers they judge better. Silly, but I think that is what would happen. I\'m against this idea.
