I found 20 \"Agrees\" in my mail today concerning just 3 answers which were quite banal and obvious. I appreciate everybody\'s good will, but I wonder if we could adopt a line of conduct like this:


1) never more than 3 \"Agrees\" per answer except if it\'s an unexpected one


2) no more than 1 or 2 \"Agrees\" if the answer is the only one proposed (except if it\'s an unexpected one) (of course there MAY arrive more answers later, but grade what you see)


3) NO grading of obvious translations like proper names and placenames, \"Milan\", \"cat\" etc


Please agree!

Why? Feb 11, 2002

Sorry, but why would you want to do that? I can see no benefits (except for a few less e-mails in your inbox) and a big problem (what happens if you don\'t revisit questions and new, better answers come up? and who revisits questions? I don\'t, except in a few, very interesting or conflictive cases.)

Just grin and bear it icon_biggrin.gif

Or disable the \"agree/disagree notification\" feature before posting an answer.

I agree with Andrea and Werner Feb 11, 2002

Sometimes the grading process develops into an interesting discussion (ok, sometimes it\'s just \'tit for tat\', but I guess you can\'t get one without the other...).

TOPIC STARTER
resolved! Feb 11, 2002

thanks, Andrea, for suggesting to disable the \"agree/disagree notification\" feature! I didn\'t know that! of course I\'ll use it only for the easy answers and appreciate comments on all my other future answers.

Disagree! ;-) Feb 11, 2002

That was Werner\'s suggestion, not mine icon_smile.gif

Cheers,
