Is there a way to easily see all the answers that I have hid?

Once you hide an answer, it will vanish from your "Answered" list so you can't anymore keep track of them. I'd like to be able to easily look at my hidden answers.

Note that I am not interested in unhiding any of my hidden answers. I know this is not allowed. I just wanted to have an easy way to have them all listed so I could visit them again, if I wanted to.

By the way, since our hidden answers are not removed from the respective question pages (they are grayed out and although others can't see them anymore, we, the answerers, still can see them) why are they removed from the "Answered" list? They could still be listed there in a "grayed out" way.

You remind me of my sister... Nov 12, 2009

... who used to store most of her files "in that handy can on the desktop."

No offense intended.

Hi Delveneto,

Hidden answers are already listed in grey in your answered list. I can see for instance that last time you hid an answer was on November 3rd. If you can't see them, maybe you should send a support ticket.

Best regards,
Stéphanie

Makes sense Nov 12, 2009

Hello all,

since our hidden answers are not removed from the respective question pages (they are grayed out and although others can't see them anymore, we, the answerers, still can see them) why are they removed from the "Answered" list? They could still be listed there in a "grayed out" way.


Thanks for bringing this into my attention, delveneto. You are right, answers that have been hidden are visible to the answerer only when 10% of the total answers was hidden (but no less than 20 answers), as announced here.

Showing hidden answers to answerers even when the 10% was not reached makes sense. Let me see what can be done.

I appreciate your patience.

Regards,

Lucia

I understand now Nov 12, 2009

Thank you both.

I'll then hope and wait that ProZ will make them visible to everybody as well. It'd be nice to have all my answers, despite their status, in that list. My hidden answers are usually more meaningful to me than the non-hidden ones.

Otherwise, the solution would be to answer and hide a bunch of questions just to reach the 10% threshold. (JK)

Why would anyone hide their answers? Nov 12, 2009

Perhaps I'm being dim, but could someone please explain why anyone would hide their answers? If you hide your answers, what use are they to the Kudoz asker or to anyone else (but yourself, who already know them).

If you want your answers to be visible you should not hide them.

Even if you reach the 10% threshold, other users will only be able to see the message "hidden by the answerer"

Enrique

Hiding feature is nice. Nov 12, 2009

Jenny:

People are different. Some will find no use in hiding, some will find it very useful. I hide mainly for two reasons:

- my answer is dead wrong (it happens when the asker gives little context and later clarifies by expanding it or when I make a mistake)
- anger (no further explanation...)

Enrique:

I think I expressed myself dubiously here: "I'll then hope and wait that ProZ will make them visible to everybody as well."

What I meant by "everybody" was "answerers that have not reached the 10% threshold".

I want all my hidden answers to be easily visible to me only.

Thank you.

Hidden answers are now visible to profile owners Nov 12, 2009

You should be able to see all your hidden answers in your KudoZ answers history page now.

Remember that when the percentage of hidden answers exceeds 10% of all answers, the label "Answer hidden by answerer" will be displayed for each hidden answer in the answerer's profile statistics.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Lucia

Nice!!! Nov 12, 2009

YAY!!!

Thank you. Just what I thought it should be like.



P.S. - I now know that I have 3.2% of hidden answers... Why not show such percentage to the public? It would be interesting to know how often someone hides.
