Two days ago I posted a question (http://www.proz.com/kudoz/346806) and chose an answer \"as the most helpful\"; but when the moment came to put in on the glossary I though it would be better to use an answer that was a bit more neutral, even if it was not the one that was best for my text.



So then I wondered: should I have awarded the ponts to that other answer (the one that ended up in the glossary)?

Hi Maria,

I\'d say don\'t lose sleep over that - assigning KudoZ points is one thing, but sometimes a slightly different version may be more appropriate for the glossary. In fact, why not point it out in your grading remarks?

I'd say pointing it out is key... Jan 21, 2003

I\'d definitely point it out... I\'ve (recently) seen a couple of instances where points were awarded to someone, and the glossary term entered by the asker was vastly different without any comment as to why, leaving everyone who offered an answer puzzled and a bit miffed.
