AREN'T YOU SICK AND TIRED???

By jasonbis ·
Aren't you sick and tired of all those people posting questions and never assigning any points? It happens almost every time I answer a question. The person leaves it open forever or closes it and never assigns any points.

You can respond with your thoughts if you'd like but of course I'm not really going to award someone 5000 points. That was just to get you to look at this.

We need Techrepublic to come up with another system such as: If someone leaves a post open for more than a month than it automatically closes and awards the points evenly to all responders.

Any other suggestions??

So you're sick and tired of people not assigning points; however, you're not going to award any points? That'll show 'em!

"You can respond with your thoughts if you'd like but of course I'm not really going to award someone 5000 points."

Way to take the lead and set an example. I like the idea of getting points to ask questions in the future, but I find that I somethimes learn more about problems and their solutions if I research a question that someone else has. I know how you feel, because I would like the points, b ut I have found that the benefits of solving someone else's problems outweighs the loss of points.

Auto-closing and auto-assigning points is not a good idea - every Tom, ****, and Harry will post some junk just to grab a share of points. The best solution is for a moderator to read posts over a certain date and use their judgement to assign the points fairly.

You certainly hit the nail on the head.

Most irritating are the people who ask the question, get the answer, reject it and close the question without any comments whatsoever.

It could be just inexperience, not necessarily a sign of exploitative behaviour, because most often these people have just joined TR. However, usually the option to 'Send private message' to them is blocked. I got once so annoyed that I answered the next question by him/her with what I thought about the previous closure without points or comments.

How about not awarding the points as yet but debiting at least some points from the account that has not closed the question? That would serve them right.
