Please be thoughtful when you rate answers, as people do put time and thought into their answers. If your answer earns a negative rating, don’t dismay! It doesn’t mean it was wrong; it just means that it may not have been helpful to that particular user. You can always reply to your answer with a clarification, if needed!
How To Select A 'Best Answer'?
Marking an answer as the “best” answer will highlight it and reward the person whose answer it was with a star. Selecting the “best” answer to your question is a subjective process.

Deciding what criteria make an answer the “best” answer is totally up to you.

Top Tip #1 - Share Great Questions!
Spread the word when you think there is a question worth passing along. You can share great questions on sites like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Delicious, Stumble Upon, Digg and Reddit.
Top Tip #2 - Invite Your Friends!
We want The Forum to be as useful of a resource for you as possible. Help us grow the community by inviting your friends… the more people we have asking and answering questions, the better the resource will become!
Top Tip #3 - Add Pictures or Videos To Your Question!
You can add pictures or video to your questions in one of two ways. To add images, just wrap the URL of the image you want to upload with img src
tags. How do you find the image URL? Just right click on any image and select “copy image URL/address”. So the final thing should look like this: <img src=”YOUR IMAGE URL HERE”>
To add a video from YouTube, just click “Embed” on any video, make the custom width 500 (and let it set the height), then copy the iframe code.

Info - How does The Forum moderate the Q&A's?
Our policy is to only remove posts that violate our posting policies (see the section above). SkaterGirl International doesn’t vote on user questions or answers, so you can be confident that any ratings, “best” answer awards, etc., are determined 100% by the community. The only time SkaterGirl will rate or choose “best” answers is when we ask a question directly.
