Post a thread URL here if you tried answering a question and no one noticed (part 2) RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • So this is Part 2. Part 1 got too long, so I locked it: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/Profile/thread/7cdc3396-a705-4186-837f-a8a6e195b726

    I'm going to try something different, since this is a community. We have this Achievement and Recognition system, but it doesn't do any good if no one notices your work, right? The forum world is huge out there, and it seems that a lot of threads go by without anyone noticing what's happening on them. So...


    If you ever tried answering a question, and no one noticed, then post your Forum thread URL here (for any forum that's tied into the profile system)... if you meet the following conditions:

    1 - The Asker (or someone else) has not explained why your answer attempt does not solve the issue.

    2 - Nobody (including yourself) has proposed your reply as an answer.


    It is okay to include a thread if someone else's reply is proposed or marked as an answer (you might feel like you have a better answer).


    Then as a community, we will go through these threads and help you out when appropriate by either...

    1. Proposing your reply as an answer (if we think it actually answers the question)


    2. Voting your post as helpful (if we think it is actually helpful)


    Since this is part 2, I refined this process slightly. If this idea doesn't work for any reason, I'll update this post to make it clear that we stopped trying this approach (that the thread is closed), and I will lock the thread.


    NOTE: If you want to try this out, please mark this post as Helpful.
