Even though I’m hanging on the bottom of Top 10 users, I still managed to make it to Pro Level today :-)Now I have a nice silver icon to my name (or maybe it’s platinum, since the previous one looked like gold). Now, after giving myself pat on the back – let’s continue.
I still think the point system for the forum is mostly benefiting 2 sides – the forum itself & novices trying to make it to the market and not taking their due diligence to make simple forum or google search / RTFM. It’s encouraging me and fellow experienced colleagues to answer really rudimentary questions (“what is RPD? my AdminTool doesn’t work – oops I didn’t install it; I need to format my report a certain way – how do I change cell background?” . There’re several major flaws of the point system on any forum – first, a lot of stupid questions and second, it’s bringing competition spirit and making experienced folks answering those. Does “Pro” status mean anything? I’m not sure -since there’re probably many experienced consultants out there who’re just readers or perhaps they don’t want to be bothered with silly questions. I don’t see Jeff actively participating on OTN forums (even though I think he had some postings in the past) – probably for that same reason.
Thank you everyone listed below! Excellent job! Best of luck to all of you! I also want to mention David T. and anyone else not listed.
