|Just briefly and for the last time, as I have better stuff to do.
I can agree on Feedback forum, but never on Meet & Talk. If good question or tip is posted there it should be moved to appropriate forum. And please don't confuse my suggestion with campaign. It has nothing to do with it. It is very actual during whole year.
I'm glad we agree at least on one thing, that this has nothing to do with premium campaign.
I don't know if I only see this, but once more time again, please open Meet&Talk and see rating on the posts !!!!!! See the topic names open them and see inside.
Probably you're the only one, yes, or at least I'm not another one.
Why do we need STARS for congradulation and for football and for weather and for beer and so on. This is Meet&Talk for god sake, nothing here can be helpful.
Why do we not need them? Excellent things are not excellent because they cover technical questions and technical questions only.
Removing 'Thank' button from useless post is also not a good idea. What if I just want to thank some user for useless post, especially if it was in Meet&Talk ?This is only thank, it soppose to replase those post where you create new post just to say 'thank you!'. No 'thank you' post, the thread is more readable.
I don't know, man, I don't really see no difference - thanks is to replace thank posts, stars are to replace "This was helpful" up to "This was excellent" posts, the only difference is the stars do count while the thanks don't. Why? Good question, why don't the thanks count as well?
Lets return to starts. Please calculate total amount of stars in Meet&Talk. At least approximatelly.
Nice riddle there, buddy, or was it?
Yes, those users with those stars later go to product conferences and make fake impression about how helpful they are.
Do they? Because I don't even think that's possible, you can pretend to be helpful, try to be helpful, but how do you make a fake impression of being helpful? If I have a problem that I kindly ask for help, what makes impression of being helpful is when someone tells me what am I doing wrong, points me in the right direction or eventually tells me what's the right way to do it. It's really hard to fake that as you pretty much see real time the real "value" of it.
This is not fare if we think about users who search for help. In that case it means that start do not recognize the ones with real good knowledge. Even furthermore there are lots of us who can sit all day in the office and make meets and talks and earn starts. On the other hand there are users who make program, engioneering, go for commissioning and they have hudge knowledge and experience, but they just have no time to waist in Meet&Talk.
I don't really know what to make of this. Yea, life is not fair. There are people who don't really have much time, but have great knowledge and don't have time and those cases when they helped, the users just took the answer without any thank you or five stars for excellent reply as well. And what about users, that are way too enthusiastic about rating help from others, so you would consider giving it one star at most and they give it whole five stars. And they do this repeatedly, I think that is a big problem too, right? One that perhaps might need to call up some sort of "star committee"?
So those experienced users are recognizes as less reliable because they have less starts. So there should be a balance. And this is a talk about only one conference - Meet&Talk. Do you have something valuable to say ? Ok, go to product conferences as this is professionals forum and all good stuff should be related to the products.
I hope you see my point.
I see your point, the question is, do you see mine?
If you have problems with browser than press nice little button called 'suggestions' on the bottom. As I said everything real valuable in this forum is related to the product. Meet&Talk doesnt mean my browser show something incorrectly. And if someone helps you to solve your browser problems then go and give stars in Internet Explorer forums.
Gosh, I guess that answers the previous question. Anyway, I think internet explorer forums it is for sure, have a nice day, bro.
I don't see why people would still care about travelling salesman problem nowadays. You can simply buy stuff on the internet.
