• Can the "Choose as Best Answer" button be confused with "Vote as Best Answer"?

    I've read about several users (mostly newcomers to YA) who confused the blue (with round corners) "Choose as Best Answer" button that appears in their own questions with the blue (with straight corners) "Vote as Best Answer" button visible in all Undecided questions. Consequently, they thought that they had voted when in fact they'd chosen the BA, or viceversa. Has this ever happened to you? Can you suggest any change that would prevent this confusion? Thanks in advance!

  • What is a good tripod for macro shots?

    I need a sturdy and easy-to-use tripod to use with a Canon Powershot S3 IS and a Canon A620. It will be mostly used for macro shots of small skeletal parts (indoor use), and possibly some wildlife shots (outdoors): At present we're using a SLIK Compact and we'd like something comparable or better. Thanks in advance for any advice :-)

    I'm looking for input from new and seasoned users alike. I've been participating in YA for a while, and one of my first suggestions for the site was that there should be a Tutorial. I even wanted it to be mandatory, possibly available as short 'installments' that each user would view when they logged in, to be completed within a more or less short period. The YAT have not deemed it necessary, and they've provided the Help and FAQ pages instead, but I think they're not enough. Anyway, here's my preliminary version of an unofficial tutorial (still under construction): http://www.freewebs.com/calitorial So, what does everybody think? Tutorial, yes or no? Mandatory or optional? Remember that you can take your ideas and suggestions to the Forum (link at the top right of this page), and thanks for answering :-)

What do you do when you detect this? Do you accept the favor anyway? And how do you know it's authentic? Do you find yourself expecting something in return when you give? Thanks :-)
