from my observation:
- all messages in all forums get counted, that results in the message count;
- all messages with a "question" icon at level 0 (hence starting a thread) contribute to enquirer rep;
- all level-1 messages with an "answer" icon in a programming forum contribute to authority reputation;
- all other reply messages (non-programming forum, not a "question" or "answer" icon, not level 0 or 1) contribute to debator reputation.
Hence debator is or could be a mix of soapbox rants and rightful technical discussions.
Luc Pattyn [Forum Guidelines][Why QA sucks][My Articles] I only read formatted code with indentation, so please use PRE tags for code snippets. I'm not participating in frackin' Q&A, so if you want my opinion, ask away in a real forum (or on my profile page).
Still didn't get how the designation system works now.In new reputaion system, I am able to see defferent designation labels for Authority .Is there some specific or concrete criteria to update the designation as it was earlier?
Don't know if this has been suggested anywhere else, sorry if it has, but i would like to see navigation buttons on the question page, e.g. Next question, Previous Question, Next Unanswered, Previous Unanswered.
This would allow the user to be on a question and just step through them, without having to go back to the index lists. The index lists allow give a subject, don'e really give enough insight into what the user is really asking.
I have tried playing with various comments, and discrovered that a single double quote character is all you need. Include one or more in the body of your QA comment an the whole damn thing disappears. END UPDATE
The damn things keep disapearing! Twice now I have tried to add a comment to an answer[^] and it just vanishes hwne i press Submit Comment
The text has been similar both times:
So tell us that to start with. Show us what you have so far, and explain where you are stuck. We aren't going to just give you the full code for your homework (that site is called rentacoder, and they charge you) - if we did, how would you learn?
Console.WriteLine outputs to the console so the user can read it.
Console.ReadLine inputs from the user to a string, so you can read it.
Double.Parse converts a string to a floating point number so you can do math on it.
+ adds numbers
* multiplies numbers
That is about all you really need.
You have the algorithm (see my earlier post), you have the methods you need, off you go.
When you reply, either modify your original question, or use the "Add Comment" button to resopond to a specific answer - the author is then sent an email (like this one) to let him know. DONT use the Answer button - further info is not a answer!
I have learnt that you can not make someone love you, all you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.
