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:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
