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 downvoted. Somewhat reasonable formulae could be invented here)

Waiting for other 70% to be covered :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
