Why sometimes when I answer a question does it not register? My answer shows on MY screen but the like/flag buttons are grey not colored.

& instead of the question moving to my list of "answered" it's still listed as a question offered to me waiting for me to either answer or skip.

Its not going to show because its your answer. Do you want to flag yourself or give a thumbs up to yourself. It would show on other people's screens so they can rate you. In other words you can't rate yourself.

Right, ok, I get that but why would it continue listing as a question for me to either answer or skip, if I had already posted an answer for it?

Because someone found your answer offensive and flagged it for the monitors to remove it. Even though it might not have been offensive at all. Sometimes you tell people the way it is and they flag it.
