User Contribution Details and Medal Details -- Privilege Missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Q1) I've been awarded Answerer and I can able to mark threads as answer. After migration this privilege has been taken for my profile and I'm not able to update any threads as answer even I know that thread is the right answer. Please provide me the missing privilege.

    Q2) In the old MSDN forums when I click on my name (or other users) in any thread it will directly take me to the user profile showing his details and the points he has scored till now. However when I try the same in this new forum I couldn't find any details about points I've scored. Where can I get these details?

    Q3) In the old MSDN forums when any one clicks on the start it will take it to the scoring details page, like what is the point alloted for contribution, marked as answer or marked as helpful. I couldn't get this details in the new one. There is no weblink when I point on the medals.

  • One 1. I suspect there is now nothing between a Moderator and a regular user. You can still as a regular user mark a post with "Propose as Answer" which a Moderator can then upgrade to Answer.

    2. It's true it's more difficult to find but not that difficult. Go to any new forum and on the right there is the top ten poster in the previous 30 days. Click on More at the end of that page. The enter your name in the search box on the right hand side near the top of the page and you get a line giving your replies; points and answers.

    3. There are clear rules for this. There was a recent thread here which included those rules but I can't remember wither waht they are or where they are listed. But it was a thread that was live in the last couple of days (probably the one about points missing).

    Hope this helps a bit in the meantime.

  • The scoring system is in the FAQ:

  • 1. There is actually an Answer Marker role in the new platform. However all permissions are on a per forum basis now, rather than the entire site (all MSDN forums). Which forums do you mark answers in? If you prefer, send me an email (address in sig) and we can fix this offline.

    2. There's a link in the right nav of the profile page to see someones threads. We realize this is an extra click, and hard to see, we're going to fix this.
