... and I am sorry to have done that:
a) the answer was worth it, so after looking again at the battle field:
http://www.proz.com/kudoz/1209268#2887235
I realized I still can give points and I did

so by now I am just 50% sorry and here's the reason why:
b) I got reminded (again and again) to give points unless (quote) " you posted the question using the "not-for-points" option (unquote). Well, I did use the not-for-points option, which the reminder could detect. But did not.

Maybe not-for-points does not make any sense anyhow. But then, why have it...

Regards

What prompted you to post a question for no points? Dec 27, 2005

I'm curious as well... Dec 27, 2005

..but can't say for sure anymore. I think it was partially "the question is not that serious" attitude, partially "let's try THAT" kind of curiosity.

Regards

Sorry, Tadej... Dec 27, 2005

A: you deserved the points, but...
B: I blew it by asking a NP question - if it is an NPQ, there's no way to award points on closing the question.
C: there's a question right now out there...;)

Regards and again sorry

No problem Dec 27, 2005

I haven't expect points, I knew that it is a NPQ. However, in you first post you wrote, that you awarded answerer with points,
I realized I still can give points and I did

so I just informed you that I didn't recieve any, if I was awarded.

Another NPQ, why do you expect an answer?

Since you regret your choice, Dec 27, 2005

I have unchecked your original option and made it "for-points-question", so you may grade it to your wish.

In the future you may contact any of the moderators for such corrections.

Best regards,

Vesna
