Please do change the default confidence (KudoZ questions) to \"I am guessing\".



It\'s far too convenient to just click the submit button after delivering a possible answer without being really confident.



I think it quite a better idea having those people change their confidence setting to a higher degree IF they\'re really confident about their suggestion.



Leaving the default setting at the present level will result in too many \"confident\" suggestions making it really hard for the asker to select the truly confident answers.



It\'s just too convenient to type and click - without changing the confidence settings to the proper degree.

I totally agree Jul 9, 2002

Many a time have I lost time setting my confidence level lower to show that I wasn´t so sure of my response... Let´s just set a default confidence level at 3. What do you think?

I am going to go with no default. Jul 12, 2002

Point taken. It will have to be entered explicitly.
