From now on, if you DO NOT select a Most Helpful opinion on your question, the system will choose one based on engagement for you after 15 days. Neither the QA nor the person awarded MH will get the usual Xper points for MH. It's chosen based on engagement: votes, comments, length, time, xper level, gender, among other criteria. As long as you're giving helpful opinions, we'll find them!
We encourage everyone to remember to select a MH opinion within 15 days so that YOU and the user who shared can get the Xper points for selecting and being chosen!
So you are in the Guiness book for winning the largest amount of Xper points in the shortest time ever! If you want it or not, you're famous Daph! Didn't you realize what happened? The millenium bug hit you with 14 years delay :-)
It's not a glitch by the way. It's intentional, done by the admins. Why? Go check your old questions (the ones you asked before the update) which you didn't select a Best Answer for. You'll now see that the Most Helpful has been selected for you by the admins. So, now, ALL our old questions have Most Helpful Opinions.
That's why we all received more and more Most Helpful Opinions from the old questions (before update). I don't know if the admins employed a random selection process or they did it one by one (doesn't make sense, huh?). Maybe they selected the answer that has the more upvotes, number of words, comments, etc...
Thought of sharing this. :) What's awesome is if we received more Xper points! Hahaha!
