Changing the reward points allocation

Hello SDN Team,

Any user who has allocated points to the reply should not have the possibility to change the rewarded points.

This will really demotivates the consultants who has sincerily answered the Query.

    Interesting thought, but what about when they want to change the points from 2 to 6 or 6 to 10?

      Yes but what about the person who marked it 10 thinking it was solved to find out the problem is still there so the reduce it to 6 (or 2 if they have already given 2 people 6 points) so that it is known the problem is still there and the solution is not solved.

    Though, it was a case in my life in SDN, when I gave a compehensive (I beleive) answer to a question with a demand to clarify - was A really equal to B?

    I was granted 10 points for a solution. After that a questioner asked: was A equal to B? And removed 10 points.

    Another guy said: yes, A was equal to B, and was awarded for the solution:

    That's the moment when someone decides not to answer to particular people with such strange logic.

    Though, regardless of such pecular people I do believe that a questioner must have a right to change his/her awardings.

    I saw the people who reward the first answers to their questions with at least 6 points, just encouraging anothers to answer.

    Nevertheless the first answers might be useless or even wrong.

    If the questioner sees it, s/he must have a right to rearrange the points according to the real contribution.

    So, I don't think it would be just to deprive them of this.

    Best regards,

      Well, that is life on SDN! There is another breed that comes up with a different question following the resolution of the original question and unassigns the points awarded for the original. I stopped caring about the points a while ago. Its nice to get them and the tee shirts but it is finding an answer and solving a problem and learning a little more in the process that is more satisfying. I am also interested to see who has the best average of points per post and by forum!
