Are the admins picking best answers now? Answered

I've noticed lately that a lot of my really old answers are being picked as best answers.  Is it just a coincidence, or are the admins finally picking the best answers on the old questions?

Admins don't pick best answers, that's down to the author of the question.

OK, I guess it's just one heck of a coincidence that authors of questions that are a year or so old have started picking my answers as best answers within days of each other. I just thought enough people might have complained so that the admins started picking answers on old questions. :)

I was wondering the same - A couple of really old answers of mine recently had 'Best Answer' awarded.

Since then someone who claims that they were an admin at one time (I will not say who, but I seem to remember when they were), sent me a PM and said that they do sometimes "clean up" the answers section. :)
