If the "Yes my question has been answered button" is used to mark a thread as being answered, no points are awarded to the person giving the correct answer, and no post is marked as being the answer. Everyone is left guessing.

If the "Correct Answer" button (in the post containing the answer) is used, the points are awarded to the author and more importantly, the post is marked for others to see the correct answer.
