TQ&A fix...

By Jaqui ·
in the recent thread about TQ&A I pointed out to droolin that it's the lack of feedback from those asking the questionns that get people irritated with the TQ&A.

I know it's been bandied around to include the TQ&A into the Discussions, with a single posting screen and a radio button / select box for picking where the post should go.
[ at least on new topics ]

We have questioned the validity of this, because of the points. [ useless or not isn't relevant ]

I say take a look at linuxquestions.org, they use the forum format for their entire Q&A. They do ask that when a question is answered effectively the original poster change the title of the post to add --Solved to it.
[ which has as much sucess as people closing questions here ]

why not use the discussions for the TQ&A?
then at least feedback is easier to get from the original poster, even if the post doesn't get a solved/closed tag added to the title. Instead of having two sections of the site, it is one section, and the select box / radio button can set a tag for the posting.
[ Question or Discussion ]

no points for tracking like that, only have member activity/rating skewed higher by participation in the question tagged posts.
[ or something like that ]

Generally, no-one really worries about points, they just want the feedback on if the answer was helpfull.
