Hello everybody,

just recently I got an email saying that the question I answered was closed and another answer was selected. In the details below it said that my answer was selected. How should I understand that? Is that a typical KudoZ glitch, or what?

Not a glitch Aug 29, 2014

but the result of automatic grading: the question was graded automatically by the robot, wasn't it? Hence some mess in the notifications.

Of course, you can submit a support ticket with the link to the question, in case you need any further checking.

Asker's error Aug 29, 2014

There was a case recently in the Russian-English pair when an asker, having selected an answer, then posted in the discussion area that she had selected the wrong answer by mistake and asked how she could correct this. I don't know the outcome, but maybe this is the question to which you refer.

It happened to me too Aug 29, 2014

Today, for the first time in many years with ProZ.com.
It must be a glitch.

Thanks Aug 30, 2014

Thanks for the replies. So, not a typical, but an unusual glitch, then.

Have a good weekend everybody.
