I was not asking for an explanation, neither I was looking for more money. (Nobody, except two or three members, is here for money.) I was trying to point out the fault in the system in a subtle way. I was pointing out at the fault of the editor and inconsistency in awarding CCs & points in a roundabout way.
Venkiteswaran's latest response in the AE question in reference proves my point. He has himself admitted (in his second response) a mistake on his part in his first response. Moreover, Mohan wanted to export the whole contact list from a Jio phone to another phone in one go and Venkiteswaran's first answer never answered that aspect. So, were the 10 CCs for the first answer justified? Now his second response has been allotted 5 CCs. Fine, but have the CCs for his first answer adjusted accordingly? NO.
Secondly, Dr Rao's answer was a repetition of what I had said there. His extra point about the phone asking where to update the contacts is correct, but incomplete. It happens when one has synced two or more mail accounts with contacts on the phone. In case, one has synced just one mail account, the contacts are automatically updated. So, I feel Dr Rao's information was incomplete.
Thirdly, this whole episode throws up another interesting question - Are the editors qualified enough to evaluate every AE question on its merit? There maybe some queries related to technology, then some maybe related to medicines, education ..... Does every editor know about each field to judge the answer according to its merit? Recently, a senior editor posted a query about a phone. Can we expect the same senior editor to evaluate the answers related to technology properly? Well, your guess is as good as mine.
You may say that the editor concerned searchs the net regarding the query/answer and then evaluate the answers. Well, other sites may be having incorrect information too.
Your words - Though it is not mandatory on the part of the Editorial team to explain how the points and c.c are awarded - were a bit harsh. It is Tony & co's site and they can fill the pages with irrelevant, incomplete and incorrect information or whatever they wish.
If the team still thinks that the allotted CCs and points are correct, then I do not wish to pursue this query any more.
When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new!
