I'm a very logical person and when things don't make any sense, I get confused.
Creating a Thread:
Currently, we have 3 options..
- Propose an Idea
- Ask a Question
- Report a Problem
Now, I agree the 2 of the above 3 categories should have a voting system. I'm not sure why anyone would vote on asking a question. Anyway, I was looking through the important issues on this ticket tracking system by votes, to add my logic to those important issues.
Then I come across this post that's important enough to be on the first page.
This user just makes a general comment, about how he likes the improvements so far that he sees. Then 3 people vote up his comment, I guess that means they like the improvement also.
Now I'm trying to go over important issues and I see this post. Why is this allowed to be voted up? It makes no sense.
So to rectify it, I think there needs to be a 4th category when creating a thread called
And anything created with category shouldn't have a voting system to it, along with "Ask a Question" then it can have a like system which is fine. Then people can make comments, post tutorials, discuss changes in RFCs, etc. Things that shouldn't be part of a voting system.
Votes in my mind are for Ideas and Bugs, in a tracking system to determine which should be addressed, nothing to do with asking questions or making general comments.
