I asked a ques on proz.com. Mistakenly I clicked on one of the following two options

1. Wait for 24 hrs. to close ques.
2. Let peer comment decide the correct ans.

I needed to click on first option, but I clicked the second one.
Now, when I want to close the ques, it's not letting me do that (or else perhaps I don't know how to do that). Now, it gives message that it will take 70+ hrs. for it to close (I wasn't aware of this rule. Sorry for that)! I feel that answerer may feel embarrassed because of that. His answer is the best among all and is a leader as per peer comments as well.
What shall I do now to close the ques and declare him winner?

Also, all this happened after I selected that answer. Now, it's coming with that answer that 'asker has selected this answer as most helpful answer', not allowing me to do anything more.

Also, I request/suggest you hereby to place a warning after clicking any such option, that you won't be able to revert back your action after clicking here. It'll minimise the possibility of any such mistake.
Please see.

I think moderators can only help if the question has been graded: they can ungrade it (if the person who received the KudoZ points agree). If the question has not been graded yet, staff may be able to help you (this is usually much faster on work days than on weekends). For such technical problems a support ticket is usually the best choice.
Kind regards,
