Just want to share with you some thoughts on the EE's points system. I don't think how is it now that represents well our expertise's areas.
For example, I have points in 93 (!?) topic areas and for sure I'm not an expert in all of those areas. I consider myself expert in SQL Server and with very good knowledge in others RDBMS and VB. Also not so bad knowledge in Windows and Office tools. But stops here.
So why I got points in 93 topics areas? Because many of the questions that I answer it's tagged in more than one topic so when I give the right answer I get points in all those topics areas.
I think the points system should let the Expert chose only one topic area where he or she will get the points. For me it's more fair and will give a real image of our expertise areas. Don't you think so?
I would like to hear from you about this subject.
