in reply to Improving disclosure of quality for Catagorized Q&A Answers

I know that when I was working on the RAT I had a lot of issues arise from Q&A related nodes. IMO it might be worth doing a reassesment of how these nodes work and restrcuture them to be easier to deal with.

    Personally I question the value of having Q&A work differently from the rest of the site. The section is probably best served by using the same internal structure (ie regular root nodes and notes like everywhere else), with a (configurably?) forced note depth of 1 when you look at the root node. Effectively that would work like the section does now: you see a question and only its direct answers. The major difference is that there would automatically be a some notes below your chosen depth indicator where there are replies to an answer.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      And where does the category level fit into that? (Right now, categories have questions have answers have notes).

        It doesn't change at all. My proposal is categories have questions have notes. I simply got rid of the separate answers by having questions display their notes with a forced note depth of 1.
