Q: Is answer of the day really answer of the day?

It's name suggests that it should be updated everyday, but strangely it isn't.
It also suggests that an answer in one day should be chosen for that day and not from the day or week before, yet strangely it isn't. I know this because I had answer of the day with a post that was a few days old.

I think it hasnt been updated because of the holiday. Even cats need vacation time.

I don't think it states anywhere the answer has to be from a post for that particular day, more of an acknowledgement of good, researched answers.

Yeah just wait until the cat comes back. He will so prove you wrong by deleting your question for criticizing this website. And have this feeling that neither of us will be chosen for answer of the day for awhile.

The answer of the day from what I can tell gets awarded to a reply to a question that seems to be particularly helpful. You get 20 points for getting answer of the day as well.

I've noticed that on some days where there aren't really any "good" questions (ie: Why do foreigners...) the AotD won't be updated simply because there aren't any good answers, but I do think it's not being updated due to vacation time.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
