Since you lose 5 points for deleting a question you've asked...

I think we should earn at least 2 points each time we select a best answer to the questions we ask.
I deleted an old question I had asked because well..for one, it was an old question and there was only one answer to it and it was an anon person and I'm not going to select an anon for best answer.Besides, it wasn't a very good answer anyway. If I knew I'd lose 5 points, I would have just let it sit in the que.
What do you think?

  • I will just leave them up there. Then CM can worry about taking up storage space with unanswered questions or old ones.

  • well, it does give a you a little "do you wish to continue and delete, you will lose 5 points" message, so it does give you a chance to decide not to lose the 5 points.

  • Sounds good to me. I just had to award Best Answer to a non-answer (she asked a question about my question) because it was the only "answer".

  • i would think that all these new questions just to get points
    and less people deleting their old questions because of less points
    will clutter the site

    why would you lose points for deleting an old question?
    you should earn extra credit something for cleaning your page up and keeping it tighty

  • they don't really want you deleting questions since the question or answers could be helpful to other moms - that's why you lose points for deleting. If you are awarding "Best Answer" to old questions now - yes they will get the extra credit.
