TechRepublic (maybe) needs Java help

By maxwell edison ·
If you click on a members ID, you are taken to a page that displays information on the member's statistics - the number of questions asked, etc. It used to show the statistics on the number of answers accepted, rejected and so on, but now those statistics are missing. Instead, we get the following explanation:

"We have temporarily removed the statistics on Answers accepted, Answers rejected and Answers not rated that previously appeared in this listing. The database query that produced this information was affecting the performance of the site. This is a short-term solution. We are working on a way to provide this information without harming the performance of the site."

So, I surmise that Jave Guru and other TechRepublic programmersmay be open to suggestions on how to solve this problem.

Those statistics appear on the number of answers given rating, but not the number of questions asked rating, which I find strange. (But I don't know anything about Java.)

15,000 points go to any member who can help solve the problem. By the way, the only way I'll know if a member's suggestion has merit or not is if JaveGuru chimes in. I'll follow his advice on to whom and/or how and/or if to distribute the points. (If he doesn't, I'll have to re-evaluate if/how the points are distributed.)

I like to see the statistics because I've started to avoid those members who simply ask and reject, or have a very high rejection rate. I simply won't waste my time on those inconsiderate $%&*^#@!. In fact, it's really beginning to get me riled up. (Which may be the real underlying reason for this question.) If you want to use this thread as a soapbox to vent an opinion on those inconsiderate so-and-sos, feel free. But the points willbe distributed only to the person (or persons) who offers suggestions or advice that is implemented to solve the issue as described above.

I find if I go back in the stats are shown. I, also, see that the User Deleted signatures are back and there hasn't been any close outs of dated questions in a long time.

I thought that TechRepublic’s JavaGuru might chime in with a comment or two, but no such luck. I guess they’re either not monitoring the forum or don’t care about it. But that’s ok; I don’t care about this issue anymore. I was rather perturbed at a few people over the past week or so because of their inconsiderate 100% rejection rate, and this question was probably more of a knee-jerk reaction rather than anything else. Why should I care about it? Quite frankly, I’m getting tired of answering so many questions anyway.

Thanks to all who took the time to read the post and reply.

Dklippert, here are a few points to narrow the gap between us. You provide a lot of great help – even for those who kick you in the knee after they ask for the help. My guess is that you’ll overtake the top spot by the end of the month. I’m going to take a break from answering. This month I’m replacing my NT 4.0 servers with Windows 2000, and configuring some sort of remote access (VPN or something). So I may be on the other side of those questions for a change - looking for answers to my questions. (Maybe I should just offer 100,000 points or so to someone (a Win2k Server expert) willing tobecome my “personal consultant” for the next few weeks.)

Regards,

Maxwell

UP ON MY SOAPBOX,
Amen to that Maxwell, people who ask a question and then reject a good answer or request for more info are indeed a pain. Especially when an original answer was correct but the asker was to obtuse to understand. Techrepublic needs to create a referee position to look for these outlandish rejection statistics when and if they are published. By the way from the source code here are the people it seems we need to ask about the the page functionality:

Hi Maxwell,

It seems quite simple to me, (We're as ISP), when I get our primary web sight over loaded with database access on a particular search page, I just put another server with a static IP online and move the page and database over.

Then, on the original site, when that page is to be accessed, we merely do a simple "URL Re-direct" and the original sight is back up to its original high speed.

With the price of servers lately, being dirt cheep with closeout programs at some vendors, it is easy to do.

Cheers
George

Florinel -- Regarding...
http://www.TechRepublic.com/forumqa/thread_detail.jhtml? thread_id=103319
Essentially... If you and the original poster are online at the same time (him/her posting the responses or closing the question... and you posting an answer) you will sometimes see the questions closed out with an Not Rated answer. That happens because of the simultaneous postings. I've seen this before and if you check the dates of both your answer and when the question was closed, they coincide (the times that used to be posted along with the dates, were handy for this as well).

Maxwell,
I've noticed you're beginning to post answers to people who have rejected all with a general question as to why they have rejected previous correct answers -- can't say that I blame you. Sometimes it gets frustrating to post a correct answer and then know that it was rejected without any reasons given. You take the time to try to help, and it sometimes seems wasted.

I have no response to the Java issue either. You may reject my posting.
