Hey Jorg, I thought the "Accepted Answered" by oneself was already fixed (or you havent commited the updates in the test forum?), and besides, why didnt he get any points himself?
And my "Assisting Answer" didnt get me any points either (well, not that I actually care, btw, just pointing what could be a bug here)
Im not usually a post whore anywhere, and wont be a "WxAwards" whore either, but in the end, I see this mod like going to turn into people into fights (not literally) trying to get a better rank. Im currently registered in many forums, and let me tell you its peaceful when you dont have that rating system behind you. But in the forums where you have, theres always people getting pissed off and stuff.
See what I mean? You take a lot of your time trying to help this guy, and you didnt get your well deserved points. If this wxawards mod wasnt around, theJorg wrote:A shame you didn't accepted 'me' now nobody gets points
Would have been enough, and you would have say to yourself "Good, I helped someone out, I feel better now".tjwilliams wrote: That did it! Thanks.
But now you're like "Damn, wheres my cash dude?"
I think this generates some "tense" environment among people.
What if for example there are 2 valuable contributions to a post? (leave aside the "Assisted Answer"). Both posters spent some time making nice replies, with well structured pieces of code. Then one of them gets the points and the other would probably think it twice before posting again, because of being afraid of "wasting time" again and getting no points.
Probably, the best solution, if one would want to keep a rating system, is to make it anonymous. That way people could get rated (but not twice by the same person) up at anytime, no strings attached (or should I say "No Threads attached"?), for being a valuable part of this community.
This, is just IMHO. Obviously Im a n00b here and in all wx-related, and for example upCase and Jorg are Gurus, but I thought I might share a piece of my mind, hope you guys dont get mad.
