KudoZ answers arrive according to answerer's reactivity (in time). Some agree on previously posted answers before an eventual better answer is posted, so that first rapid answers get higher numbers of agreements from reactive colleagues. It would be nice if a previous posted agreement to an early answer could be easily moved to a better answer arrived later.

Just delete your previous agree and post a new one Sep 21, 2005

No need to change how it works now, IMHO.

How to delete Sep 21, 2005

Hi Hugo,

Perhaps you haven't noticed as it's not all that obvious if you're not a frequent kudoz user.

When the page refreshes after posting an 'agree', a small "edit/delete comment" appears right behind your own agree.

Click on it and scroll all the way up to the top of the page. Choose either to edit or delete your comment. That simple.

Generally, when I do delete an agree, just out of courtesy I firstly edit and send a quick explanation of why I'm deleting it, but that's just my own idea of how to go about it.

Regards,

Álvaro )

Right but... Sep 21, 2005

Álvaro is right but it only works (you see the edit/delete option) if you have entered something beside your agreement. If the field is empty you have nothing to edit, so it doesn't appear. If you want to be able to change your mind later, better get used to write something. I've often seen things like ":)".

A peer comment can always be deleted, whether you have entered an additional note or not. The [Edit / delete] option is always visible.

You're right Sep 21, 2005

I just did a test, even an empty field can be deleted.

It might have changed or I might be confusing with something else, sorry for that

TOPIC STARTER
Thanks for all replies, but my suggestion goes beyond... Sep 21, 2005

In fact I was suggesting a new interface feature. I am aware that by deleting a previous agreement and posting a new one the change of mind is properly reflected. But I find it cumbersome. This could be achieved just in one operation on the same page (with radio buttons, for example) by which an agreement is transferred to another answer arrived later. My point is that lately arrived answers get less agreements even if they are better than previous answers. This is so because of the psychological impact of the accumulated agreements on the early answers. I found myself wandering whether I should do the change or not, somewhat impressed by the amount of agreements posted to a particular answer (you know, if everybody agrees on something, one gets shy or hesitates to become part of a minority). As we are all very busy, on doubt we drop the subject and get on towards another subject. If the possibility of expressing a change of mind is openly sollicited, this tendency may be overridden.

Thanks, Claudia, for your welcome message. Espero respuesta

Hugo

Why would you want to transfer agrees? Just post a second agree with explanation Sep 22, 2005

Hi Hugo,

In the situation you described, your first agree would reflect the status prior to a better answer appearing. So why not just post a second agree to the "better" answer provided at a later point in time? You might as well make a comment there saying "I agree here as well, and this solution is even better than ...".

Steffen
