What does "Expert Answer" mean?

The help topics explain that "Accepted Answer" means the asker marked the answer as accepted. Both the asker and the person that answered get reputation points. But how is an answer marked "Expert". Who marks it, and are reputation points awarded? Perhaps something should be added to the help topics, or maybe I missed something.

You can see it here on my response - https://docs.microsoft.com/answers/questions/4652/how-do-you-earn-points.html


It appears with my every response and I haven't done anything specific to get that tag. I'm also curious to know what's the criteria to get that tag.

Admins do not know either and are investigating the issue.

That's interesting. I don't think it was earlier and I don't think I got any additional points for this. Just for looks? I think it may be a system bug that they'll need to work out.

I think it's when you get over a certain number of reputations it start showing, maybe 1000 ?

@DSPatrick @yagmoth555 @RichardMueller-8175 @VaibhavChaudhari I created an article where I explain this: Experts.

If you have any questions on the matter or any feedback, please let me know. Thanks a lot all for the feedback so far!
