Need to rename top answerers box RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • The top answerers box seems to be showing users with the top # of medals. We need to find a term other than Top Answerers since contribution for medals != answers. Case in point is the expression migrator account which has a lot of points but is not a top answerer.

  • The list should be for the top number of posts that are marked as answers for the scope that you are in not the number of medals a user has.

  • We have a backlog item to add the actual number of answers beside the name which we'll implement in a future release which would make this more obvious.

  • Actually, the Expression Migrartor account IS a top answerer, technically. When the messages were migrated over from the newsgroups, the vendor would mark the correct answer exactly the same as it had been marked in the newsgroup, replicating the thread. So the Expression Newsgroup Migrator account has probably marked hundreds of answers.

  • We are looking into adding the number of actual answers inline with the user list...this should minimize your confusion.
