... 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 am just curious.

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

KudoZ question is still open Dec 27, 2005

I've checked the question, and it appears as still open. Have you really closed the queation?

BTW: I haven't recieved any points (if I was awarded)!

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
