Mobot Weirdness: The Revenge, Recurring "Best Answer" Notifications

Right, cut to the chase, I'm getting pretty odd notifications. More specifically 10 minutes ago and yesterday, I was informed via notifications I have the best answer for:

Suspiciously posted July 1st and July 2nd 2011. I see a pattern developing here...

I'll email Emma and ask her to speak to the devs. Sorry for your ghost notifications, on behalf of the Mobot team.

I've contacted Emma, hopefully she'll be able to get it sorted out for you :).

Same here...
Loadsa old threads where I suddenly get "best answer"....

It's not a bug guys.... not that I can see. Someone is having a glance back through old threads and just clicking best answer on it :)

I got a notification for it last night emma... from a thread ages ago and its only 1 person but im sure it was ticked ages ago...

That doesn't explain the EVO 3D thread. If someone really did glance back at an old thread, I was already the most useful answer by 3 responses, so why would the notification tell me again I was the "most useful". Surely it would've said "xxxxxx agrees with your answer".

Although looking back at my notifications, I haven't received one of those notifications where it tells you who agreed for a while... :3

Yeah, I see what you mean about the HTC Evo thread - I will raise it with the devs. Thanks Blizzard.

From dev:

Found and fixed. 'Best Answer' notifications were going out more then they should, but not too many threads were impacted and only one thread was hit really badly, resulting in post getting a 'best answer' quite a few times.

Thanks again for pointing this out!

Thank you, devs (and Emma, for letting us know) :).
