I was kind of hesitant to ask this question, but...

Does anybody think the whole "crazy for credits" thing is a bit much. I cant help but think that there will be tons of people just posting to try and get credits and it will flood the pages of "new questions" and the "bumped" page to where some of the people who are really trying to ask serious questions and are trying to find some answers may be overlooked.. What do you think?

  • They probably put that category in so that those who are 'crazy for credits' aren't taking up space in the other categories. That way serious question askers can get their questions noticed. Plus those who are annoyed with the whole credit thing don't have to go there.

  • at least it's it's own category now, so if people actually post their ?s for points there, at least you can skip those ?s. They are labeled so that you know if you even want to bother with them.

  • There are already people doing that. That's why they made that section so all the point whoring questions go in one section and the rest of the categories have the questions that are supposed to be there.

  • Its kind of annoying. I personally think they should have a category for the people who are "crazy for credits" but I think its shouldnt show up on the newly asked questions page. JMO ofcourse lol
