This is absolutely against the EE rules!

Take care to not be excluded from this community, buddy...

You helped us with my Forms Query question. In fact, we had three poeple post comments that were very helpful. You were one of them. I wanted to award each equally.  I dont see were that is a EE rule.  I will re-read.

Nothing against awarding experts for help in another question, it is however better to at least put a link to the original question in the new question text, so the expert knows what he is being rewarded for.

JM

If there was an effort...

This time are the jokes dbusher is making here too suspect to me.
I expect from him/her to resolve this and explain what is here going on.

Yes I noticed the only questions he asked in this forum are points for... questions.
Looks fishy :(

I see always the danger to bring wrong impression over someone. I try to be always carefully in this direction.

But this question for example was deleted and I brought it back to list.

Still dbusher is only reading our comments and is not able to resolve the mystery. Why???

Zvonko.  My goodness. What a fuss. First, I have much better things to do with my life then play "jokes" in EE. I suppose I may have done something wrong but I don't see it.  
Please let me try and clear this up so we can all move on.
I posted a question in this forum :Question: Form Queries
Here was a response from zvonko:
---------------------------------
Hello dbusher,

here my proposal.

Make a query form.
On this form are at least a field: SerialNumber
And a button: Search
Behind the button is formula:
@Command([ToolsRunMacro];"SearchSNdocs")

And here the agent code for this "SearchSNdocs" agent:
Sub Initialize
 Dim session As New NotesSession
 Dim db As NotesDatabase
 Dim view As NotesView
 Dim doc As NotesDocument
 Dim SN As String
 On Error Goto errormessage
 Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
 Set doc = session.DocumentContext
 SN = doc.SerialNumber(0)
 Print "Content-Type:application/vnd.ms-excel"
 Print ""
 Print "<FONT FACE='Arial'  SIZE=2>"
 Print "<TABLE BORDER=1 CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0>"
 Print "<TR VALIGN=top>"
 Print "<TH NOWRAP ALIGN=left><B>SN#</B></TH><TH>Date</TH><TH>Level</TH>"
 Print "</TR>"
 Set view = db.GetView( "SNview" )
 Set doc = view.GetFirstDocument
 While Not ( doc Is Nothing )
   If (Instr(1,doc.SerialNumber(0),SN) = 1) Then
     Print "<TR>"
     Print "<TD>" & doc.SerialNumber(0) & "</TD> "
     Print "<TD>" & doc.Date(0) & "</TD> "
     Print "<TD>" & doc.Level(0) & "</TD> "
     Print "</TR>"
   End If
   Set doc = view.GetNextDocument(doc)
 Wend
 Print "</TABLE>"
 Print "</FONT>"
 Exit Sub
errormessage:
 Print "<br>Error: " & Error$
 Print "<br>Error in line: " & Erl
End Sub

Do some tests and tell me what improvements you like to have.

So long,
zvonko
----------------------------------
Although it was not used in my solution, it did serve us in helping us direct our efforts in a different area we were not aware of.
Tell me.  What can I do to end this confusion with us?
Thanks.

Sorry dbusher, I am really ashamed :)

This is really my code and I now remember.
Definitely I was confused by your generosity.

I have now to explain this also to EE Moderators.
I pointed to them this mess which I produced with my confusion.

I beg for your big pardon.

Give me a chance next time to serve to you and so make amends for this I did to you.

dbusher and all

This and some other threads were brought to our attention. I think there is some confusion.

First of all: It is very common to award points to experts that helped in questions but whose answer wasn't accepted. You can even ask CS to help you split points between experts.

dbusher

Could you please post for everybody the URL of the question you mentioned?

OK, now I see :)

Please dbusher may I ask you a favor: please ask Mindphaser to recall your deleted question.

You have deleted your question before accepting an answer.
Main purpose of this community and its main value are the verified solutions. You destroyed my valuable solution which I was very proud of. So please ask for its recall. Mindphaser is able to reward your points back without question deletion. In normal EE terminology this is called a points split and is very common for collaborated solutions.

I am happy that this finally good resolved.

Cheers all,
zvonko

Ah yes,
I suppose the confusion started when we couldn't find the original question :-)

Hey dbusher,
