I'm a new user of this great community and I'm proud of my experience with it so I'm working on it at least 8 hours per day to learn from the mistakes of others, trying to help them based on my humble experience and Also to gain a good reputation from the biggest SharePoint technical community over the world.
I only have some notes and questions which I hope to get answers.
I found out a frustrated behavior from some participants especially questioners, such as lack of interest in upvoting the useful answers and also setting it as an answer even though it's the best answer for their questions. Moreover ,the person who asked the question comments that the answer works perfectly. But they never care for voting up or even accepting it as an answer. so we can find questions that still open since 2014 !
Also, yesterday I answered a question , after 2 hours I noticed that the person who asked the question update his question with a new request and he said the blow answer solved my issue and I need also to do additional request !
I read his update and felt with frustration to continue with him. I didn't know How he thinks why he does not appreciate my time to help you via only one or two clicks based on his reputation ?!! I only tried to help him and I think he has the same feeling for me and appreciate that but I think he only needs to know How ?
My questions are that
How can the community overcome this behavior that effect on the enthusiasm of participants especially new members like me ?
Is there a way to encourage questioners and new user to use the benefits of the main function like set as answer , downvote ,flag , upvote ....etc by informing them it will let you gain more reputation and also it will help to increase the community interaction.
Why there are some members with lack of enthusiasm to participate in providing answers, especially the new users ?
What about the unanswered questions since 2014 that already have optimum answers but not set as answers from questioners ? is it will continue to push by community user forever ?
Is StackExchange community grant a certificate of appreciation to the active and ranked members for their cooperation that sends to them via email every week ,month , quarter and year as a type of encouragement and this is also will help all participants to be more active by increasing the competition among participants.
Finally,I would like to thank all community moderators for their efforts to success this community.
