In the Kudoz questions I answered in the past, one column heading is "term > answer given".

However, what this column actually shows is "term > answer chosen".

I'd prefer to see my answers in all cases, i.e. whether my answer was chosen or not. If possible, both, my answer *and* the chosen answer, would be great.

You are right.
It used to show term > answer given, as far as I remember. Has it changed recently to show the term chosen, but the column heading has remained unchanged? In this case, the heading is inaccurate.
Besides, I don't see the point of showing the term chosen, since the list is intented to show "my answers" and not someone else's. I wish it would change back to the old format.

The current listing of selected answers instead of the suggested answers defeats the purpose of the listing. It's misleading - my list of answers contains entries I wouldn't want to be associated with.

The same for me...in quite a few cases!

Could we have the previous display restored (Term>answer given as a heading and relevant entries in the column)?

Thanks
