The good news is that you will soon be able to buy as many 1-votes as you want. Even better, with the paid 1-votes, you will be able to 1-vote a post as many times as you like (until you run out of 1-votes, of course).
I don't feel a need to ask for clarification on an answer to a question that wasn't mine to begin with, unless the subject would happen to be very relevant to me. A reply should be clear and correct; if IMO it is wrong, then it is considered "bad".
And I am inclined to vote on things I have spent time on, i.e. the relevant messages in a thread that I have read and thought about. The voting system should not be such that it dissuades or refrains me from voting.
I did not doubt; it was an incorrect answer as far as I was concerned, and I wanted to mark it as such. Partly, the result was as desired; the answer was no longer marked in green, indicating that it was not agreed on by everyone. It became nice green again after I corrected the vote.
Instead, leave a question/reply/comment.
Sounds like a good strategy to avoid arguments and downvotes. Doesn't fit me, though.
There has been a lot of posts recently about univoter stalkers, etc. Let's face it: when John gets rolling about the IQ level of QA posters, it's fun to bitch-slap him with a 1-vote. But this can obviously lead to less-benevolent uses of the 1-vote, so here is my proposal: CP starts selling 1-votes for 10 for a dollar. So when you get 1-voted, you can feel good that you have helped CP's financial situation. Of course, 1-voting will also be seriously diminished. Who wants to spend money on such nonsense?
If articles had a "Related Articles" section it would be easy to link articles that are a series (part 1, part 2, etc...) or just articles that deal with the same subject. It would also be nice if this section could be edited by high level users so that we can add links to related content.
Reason this comes up is because a user is asking me about references to a topic, it would be easier to send him to one link that gives him more references than to try to search all of them out myself.
There is a review process in place for articles now. For new authors, articles don't get automatically approved - people review them to ensure they are up to scratch and hopefully give feedback so that the author doesn't attract a barrage of 1-votes when the article goes live.
I have not recieved a codeproject newsletter since the September 16 mailing , entitled 'CodeProject | Mobile Developer News - Windows BUILD'. I double checked my mail filters and spam folders. I looked at my codeproject profile and everything appears to be in order.
