in thread What's with all of the unnecessary downvoting?

I didn't realise other people had the same thought... I know in my few efforts to gain a few XP I've had to be really fast to post otherwise one of the big guns tends to rip off a quick answer. This worked against me double because I would often have to check my answer to be really sure, while other monks know these things off by heart. While I shudder at the thought of telling anyone here what to do, maybe if a question was posted that "everyone knows the answer to", let one of the younger monks take it on. That way they get experience, confidence and a sense of community.

Before anyone says "ahaaa, you're the evil one", I've only ever voted down factually incorrect nodes.

    I agree with Jeremy, many of the older monks have a tendence to fire off an answer before the younger ones. The only question I have is this: "'Is there a local news group type forum that all messages are posted to, that younger monks don't have access to yet?' 'Is it a user node that can turned on/off?'"
    On the other hand, the older monks are a big help to the younger monks. Their quick answer provided more productivity in the community and solid answers base for the younger monks to learn from. The answers the older monks give are a big help to the newer, younger monks.....
    Thanks, Elders of the Temple.........:-)
        Thought it was something like that. Thanks ...Curtisb
