Rocket scientists needed to close questions

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29112206/Emails-I-send-rejected.html?anchor=a42648384¬ificationFollowed=210750754#a42648384

You need to be a rocket scientist to close a question.

I see a lot of screwed up closures recently.

The most popular way now is someone gets the Good Answer and other get bonus points.

It should not be as difficult as it is

There is no splitting anymore.  First accepted comment from an expert gets full value.  If an experts has more than one comment marked as helpful, then they get 1000 for each comment marked.

This is so bad, I can't even discuss it.

Yes, mlmcc, even if the close process is simplified, again, after the latest attempt to simplify it, which really didn't work, the issue is participation points will make "Experts" faster than 3000 points per question ever did.

You can see the inflation in points already.  Some posters end up awarding more participation points than answer points because they click every one of x's irrelevant comments and the one relevant comment by z who actually answered the question.

And in the reverse, some members award you a few points and select another solution even though your same solution was first.

So it cuts both ways and it remains frustrating for members to properly close questions.

From what I can see, new members cannot close questions because it is so difficult.
