I have a question about my Puzzling Stack Exchange post: What colour was the.... No,there's no damn bears here
Alright, what am I doing wrong here? I'm watching another answer with the same solution as mine get upvoted, while mine stays at zero. Mine was posted about 30 minutes prior to the other answer. Obviously, once I give an answer it's out there and someone can simply copy it. Not saying that's what happened here, but who knows.
How's this supposed to work? Am I failing to follow some convention, making my answer seem unappealing somehow?
Notice that the later answer gives no verbal explanation whatsoever, only a picture, and the poster never follows up with any of the concerns raised. So I find myself defending/explaining the ripoff answer, rather than my own, since my answer remains buried at the bottom and all the activity is on the ripoff answer.
Nevermind, my answer is now getting downvoted. I guess it's not a good answer. That or it's just the typical SE tactical downvote BS. Or someone who didn't like hearing that their own solution was completely broken. Who cares, right? I'll just delete it, the ripoff answer is still there with that solution if anyone needs it.
