Hmmm… good question. This is TOTALLY a guess, but perhaps the O.P. has to mark someone’s answer with the appropriate response before it goes to that list of “Recent question answerers”.

I answer a lot of questions, but only have seen my name a few times (and currently not there). So, mark this response as an appropriate response and let’s see if my name shows up on the list.

Nope.. I received the checkmark from @littleblackdog, but my ID is not on the list.

This is an official Bonanza response.

I have not seen my name pop up in probably a decade, yet I occasionally answer or comment. I figured because I am not someone who subscribes to the fees here (either that or I am on double secret probation because some of my answers are not liked by the management and get censored here). I would have asked the same question as the OP but I don’t care, all I want are sales here anyway and I don’t get much of that either like it USED to be. Good Luck all

See CindyBear's booth

It must be totally random because I just saw a person listed as a “Recent question answerer” who had just posted spam earlier tonight in this very forum. Her name was at the top of the list. Therefore, my conclusion is that it is simply a random algorithm that puts a forum poster on that list. Those Bonanzlers who are wondering what list we are talking about…. look on the right hand side of the main Community Help page: https://www.bonanza.com/community_help

Fortunately, her spam post was removed by Bonanza soon afterwards.

saw that also

On today’s “Recent Question Answerers” list there is no one recent answerer (neither tomwayne1 nor OP Littleblackdog), all joined from May 12-15, 2021 and all are profiles without an attached booth.

saw that too…

Just saying…
A little recognition for those who do stop in here, and try to help out, would be nice.

To Answer Brilliantly

Remember these tips:

  • Use links to other sources to support your opinions
  • Use examples where possible
  • Put yourself in the inquirers shoes: what extra info would be helpful?

Should I post a comment or an answer?

You can only post one answer, so make it count. Maybe your reply is more fitting as a comment instead?

Post an answer for:

  • Replies that directly and specifically answer the original question

Post a comment for:

  • "Thanks," "Me too," "I agree," or "Works for me" types of replies
  • When you would like the original poster to provide more details
  • When you have more to add to someone else's question or answer
