is in the details. I don't think I've ever seen so many questions posted in discussions. And zombies. They're gaining the upper hand.

The way the freakin' page jumps when 'Your discussion may be similar to' pops up is annoying as hell. Hadn't intended to go there, but the page freakin' jumped.

It's patently obvious that TPTB have no clue how we daily users use this place.

For those of us with 'really' bad eyes, this is a glaring monstrosity.

Gods. The world has gone to hell in a handbasket.

Sad. So freaking sad.

(I note the disappearance of the 'Feedback' tag. Goes to show what TPTB think of us.)

There's more, way more. But who the hell cares.

I agree with Palmetto... what does voting really accomplish?

by CG IT In reply to The devil

it's not going to make the those posts and the people who post them go away....even if a poster continually gets thumbs down, we might then discount them, but they aren't going away...and they will simply make up a new user name and continue on...

If we all ignored them, that might work, or refuse to answer or discuss questions or discussions that have the appearance of bogus.... any Please Help Me or those that are so blatantly easy to answer with a simple google, I ignor but it seems there are those here who can't resist....as long as they can't resist, there's an audience and those who seek one will continue to come back...

but those who want an audience really don't like it when the audience is of none.....

That isn't the point.

Although, if you keep the TR defaults, you won't see the posts with -10 votes, or whatever you set it to.

The point is to provide an indicator to the post author and others that the post was either appreciated or disliked. It's a hint system. No, it isn't going to make any particular user or spammer go away. OK - it would work on me. All things being equal, I'll stop posting the sort of thing that people vote down. (Or if someone I respect tells me to stuff it - that would work.)

Assumes the author cares.

Not everyone does. Trolls post for the 'enjoyment' of starting a fight.

"Discussion as a Question"

by NickNielsen In reply to Ok

Unless they've fixed it, clicking on one of the discussion links from the Questions forums opens the discussion using the questions format.

Nope, they haven't. Compare:

DaaQ: http://www.techrepublic.com/forum/questions/103-341442?tag=mantle_skin;content

Nobody has an ultimate handle on all this?

Not limited to the links...

Seems WC discussions are *special* change the /discussions/ in the URL to /questions/ and voila, you're in the DaaQ!
Doesn't work for Regular discussions.

So, if you tilt something in the WC, it drops into Q&A - no wonder then, that nobody wants to have anything to do with that place
