What's your opinion about the Answers section since the changes began a while back?

Like since we started getting credits and all that. For the most part, I like it. I hate the fact that you lose 5 points for deleting a question, though. I just deleted one (from over a month ago) because I only got one answer on it and it wasn't relevant to the question. I also dislike the new vote up system quite a bit. I preferred it so much more the way it was before. Now, I have to sit and ask myself if a good answer REALLY deserves a vote up instead of being able to vote up all the answers I think deserve it.

What's your opinion?

  • mixed feelings...i'm not much of a gamer, so the whole credit-thing doesn't do it for me. HOWEVER..since you asked, i have found my competitive spirit, always checking the dean's list!!
    i don't like losing 5 for deleting something. sometimes i re-read what i wrote, and forgot to spellcheck, or totally worded my answer wrong, and have deleted my answers. i feel like it punishes me for being stupid, y'know?!?!
    that being said, its just something to pass the time inbetween laundry and school and sitting at my dh's feet.

  • I think some workers at CM have too much time on their hands...

  • It's alright by me. I don't care for the whole point system. I just play carzy for credits for fun.

  • I'm not crazy about it at all.

  • It's okay. I miss being able to answer things with out people finding out your name. You have to reach a level to do it now (16). Loosing points for deleting a post annoys me too. I've did it twice and lost 10 points total. I don't like that you can only get so many points at once. You reach a limit and can't get any until the next day. I do like the whole game concept of it though. Wonder if we win something if we reach a certain number of points?

  • Also I don't like how they changed the main page. It goes right to questions and you can't pick out what thing that you want to go in now. Rather frusrating.
