voluntary creating discussions instead of blogs / documents in coffee corner?

What's your opinion on creating voluntary discussions, which are not marked as question, in the coffe corner instead of creating blogs and documents, until this place is again points free?

Somehow this coffee has a bitter points taste in moment, especially if wide spread poems are copied from facebook or any other side and posted here as blogs which immediatly makes the poster 10 point richer for no effort.

it is so easy, just click create discussion and remove the default tick in front of "Mark this discussion a question".

you still can earn 2 points with a LIKE, but the coffee will certainly taste better

    I presume those people doing this for the points will not voluntarily change to earning no points, so what you're asking is for those of us that care to stop earning points here while everyone else carries on. Did I get that right?

    I'd rather live without the Coffee Corner. It has no value at the moment anyway - what genuine content there is is lost in a sea of poetry and other nonsense. I'm temped to suggest that we just delete it, lose all the points earned in here, and re-create it when it is possible to do that as a points free space.

    Laure's suggestion of locking it until that time would save the content, but at this point I think getting rid of the unjustified points is more important. If we're going to have a points system it should be a meaningful one, and that means getting rid of points that have been acquired by inappropriate means.

    Or maybe the "PAIN" blog from this morning (thankfully now gone) has pushed me over the edge and I'm overreacting?

    • Hmm, okay. I know functions like this from private forums, so I thought, it could be possible here, too.

      Of course, the owner for the post itself wouldn't change (at least it didn't with the other software), they are just mashed together in one thread, sorted by the timeline. That would come in handy in a space like the Coffee Corner.

      I like FFs idea with deactivating the unwanted content types, though I'm not sure that is possible for just one space when deactivating the points for just one space isn't possible either. 😔

    Completely irrelevant if you ask me, Jürgen. The points system is worse than before the Jive-disaster and why would one care about people getting points for irrelevant babbling in the coffee corner if there are still 500 other sub-forums where people open blogs with delicious copy-pasta earning a billion points via likes while other people who contribute in discussions provide exclusive knowledge one could earn money with and don't even get a single point.

    Your idea isn't bad, but only for end-users that are willing to cushion the blow of this broken platform and I'm not one of them.

    SCN Needs more mods with more powers to regulate the reputation system or alternatively just rename it into SFC --> SAP Facebook Community.

    Oh yes, by the way:

    I agree with you Jürgen. After some days the value of points a person has in SCN will not be considerable to make a decision that he is technically good 🤪.

    It never was.

    I remember I read a headline about pain this morning

    I remember that I clicked abuse on a blog which had just 1 line, which is a typical not-a-blog

    I do not remember if that was the pain blog, but it was enough pain to see such one-liner

    Oh Paulo Carvalho, I was just typing the same, when your idea came in . I had in mind to give the blog badges a brown color if the points were only made with blogs in the coffee corner.

    I do not want to restrict poetry, don't get me wrong, if this a tradition in some coffee corners in the world then it is okay for me. And if those posters are not doing it for points, then I am confident that they create a non-question-discussion tomorrow.

    .... or it may happen what happens to Cacofonix in each Asterix comic

    Scott Raines , yes I actually care, I think it is not fair against the others who invest hours into a good blog or document. Just because "anything goes" in the coffee corner, it should not be misused to mainly make the points here. The vast majority of users cannot differentiate where the people made the points, if they hover with the mouse over the name, they just see points and badges, but do not get any idea if that is for poetry in the coffee corner or for SAP related content. And it is unfair against the freshers who post valid and right answers, but others with higher points is trusted more even they had a misleading answer.

    If you lookup some reputations then you can see that one made all his points by adding a "thank you" to hundred of blogs and documents, and was paid with with a like for that.

    I don't think you're overreacting at all

    I'm glad I missed the PAIN post 😊

    It's a good idea. But I agree with the other posters here that it would only affect those that don't really do it any way to begin with.

    I don't know if it is possible but maybe Laure can look into if Blogs and Documents can be turned off for the coffee corner and only Discussions created. (no deleting existing stuff)

    If only discussions can be created, then if someone posts a discussion as a question, it can be reported for abuse.

    Maybe it would even be possible to set the default to "Not a question" when discussions are created here in the coffee corner.

    No opinion from the poets?

    I did not start this discussion to build a wall within the coffee corner to separate Espresso drinkers from Cappuccino fans.

    Contrary, I would like to hear each voice and opinion for a mutual cooperation.

    • That's right. Copying and pasting someone else's original content without clear and specific attribution to the author and direct link to the original location is plagiarism or copyright violation, even when well-intended. Even with attribution and linking, it should not be done without express permission of the content owner (which is sometimes given implicitly with the inclusion of a "reblog" button, a la Wordpress, but otherwise must be sought).

    Surprised I am the first to respond. Sounds like a good idea.

    Create a "coffee badge" couldn't be an option? 😊
