Points

By cmiller5400 ·
Hi all, just griping because I have posted answers to at least 35 different questions and the author has not closed them out and either accepted or rejected the posts. This drives me nuts. Please question posters, rate the answers and CLOSE THEM when the problems are solved. I am not by anymeans "point hungry", I just want to know if my advice was good or bad.

Thanks for listening to my gripe!!

I totally agree, points mean nothing to me, but when I look up my profile, it shows that I have correctly answered less than 20% of the answers submitted. whether right or wrong, it would be nice to know, as we spend our time answering things (and sometimes doing research for others as well).

Yes,

I think they ought to have the questions close themselves after a set# of days, perhaps 3 weeks. As people requesting help are not curteous enuf to close them.

Yes I agree, when I post a question I aleays give points. There seems to be some who just want an answer and thats all. For some questions that I have answered I spent alot of time looking for the best way to answer it.
But there is really nothing you can do about it. Except remember the poster and not answer thier next question.

Here is a question that I have posted. If you can help or a least point me in the right direction I will give the points out.

What I hate is that one of my questions gets rated but because I didn't choose the TR spam me option I have no Idea of what question got answered unless I can be bothered to navigate through all the questions, all though that should improve my site rating I just can't be bothered.
