in thread How to know whether question in SOPW is entirely answered or not?
Even if question was asked correctly, (my original Q is opposite example - it has correction answer by myself), it has a real chance to be a "zombie" question if it was asked, for example, at Friday very late evening.
If you're interested, I can try giving you an examples of other questions that I seem to answer correctly, but they're not answered because they became zombie questions.
Yes, many questions are not answered because they were asked in a bad way. But if this is not the case, isn't this good to give a chance for a good asked question to live longer life before a "zombie" stage?
To reply to your situation with "X monks answering a question"
(which is quite common and good case) I answer
that I'm not ready to invent a good system to
calculate current level of coverage of a question.
May be such system when author should confirm a percentage of a coverage of a question that was suggested by monk "J" and, when this contradicts to other monks opinion, his XP being decremented using a certain formulae?
(when all know that Q is 100% covered (may be it belongs to FAQ) but that person still insists answer is 0% covered then he's certainly downvoted. Somewhat reasonable formulae could be invented here)
Waiting for other 70% to be covered :)
