Why can you bump only so many questions?

Even if I am out of bumps and still think a question is a good one, I should be able to bump it. Some of this point system just is crazy.

  • There are built in "core credits" that everyone gets and the new system is SUPPOSED TO reward good behavior, such as participating in the Asking & Answering part of Q&A, voting up "good, thoughtful, helpful" answers (that is what was intended, not sure how it's panning out) and bumping a mom's "good" question that is buried in the silly questions so that she has a shot at getting good replies. And then OTHERS can catapult you to a higher level by rewarding you "extra credits" for YOUR good questions & answers. Also, eventually we'll all get to the level of being able to vote DOWN an answer or post an answer anon, so I guess that we'll all be right back where we started. I don't know.

  • I agree. You should be able to bump as many as you want and get points for only so many. Won't you ask the cafemom people in the answer group about it? They've been tweeking things and may take it into consideration.

  • it is to get you to save your bumps for questions that you truly feel should be bumped and not "blow" them all at once...... :o)

  • I don't blow them all at once. But sometimes I feel some of the questions are good questions. Not just questions to vent or be silly.
