I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What do you mean? Can you be a bit more specific? (or should I simply lock this question :-) ?)

kretz and lesch: you're both experts (judging by your #answered Qs) I really meant: who really NEEDs it ?  someone with low points at the moment, someone who asks a lot of Qs :)


Reason for the giveaway: i hate the points system... what happened to simply be helpful ?  I will answer Qs when i have the time (and of cuz when i know the answer :P), but in the future will answer only via comments. I've got no need for the points, since i do not plan to ask anything here. I'll just lurk and learn, and when i really wanna find out something, i'll search the web.

derover,

I think this is a very wrong place for you here. I would strongly recommend that you go out into the newsgroups and answer questions there (and you will learn a lot too). I love the point system actually because I'm here and answer other people's question about 3 hours a day (counted together all the small time parts I'm here) and that every day. Meikl and other do even more. Actually, this is for free, we only get a few points we can nothing buy for. It basically just to compare our abilities.

Please think again about it...

Ciao, Mike

Wouldn't it be great though if everyone just could ask Qs without having to "pay" points, and others just answered them, without asking anything in return [read: points] ?

Maybe i'm a dreamer :)

Anyway, no, this is not the wrong place for me. I help where i can, and i dont see why -if one doesnt agree with something- one cannot still help.

Okay, if you see it as place for you to help then fine, you are very welcome.

But unfortunately it is often hard work to answer others question and when you visit the profiles of top experts you will see how many question they actually answered. And as I said, those points mean nothing. We still do it for free!

Ciao, Mike
