Thank you for your attention, you replied 30% of a question :)
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
Somewhat reasonable formulae could be invented here)
Waiting for other 70% to be covered :)
