Seeking clarifications and guidelinesCan we introduce some uniformity, order and rules in the Ask Expert section? To begin with, there are no guidelines available, so there is this confusion of what is acceptable as a response. Secondly, there is no clarity on the basis the CC and points are allotted.
To get better CC/points - should one beat around the bush, or provide crisp, concise answers? My response to this query had resolved the asker's problem, but it earned just 4CC/points. Should I have thrown in some irrelevant stuff to attract better compensation?
For an answer to qualify, is it fine to put down anything vaguely related, to a 'word' in the query or should the response be strictly relevant to the query? I had raised a forum post, on the same, which hasn't been answered yet.
I am capable of adding fluff to my answers, to increase the word count, but I choose to not do so. However, seeing the way the CC/points are awarded I am very tempted to do it.
I am not casting aspersions on the team, just seeking clarifications for my satisfaction.
