I recently asked a question regarding best practices in SharePoint 2013.

Best practice for deploying Site Columns and Content Type

The two answers cover the options that we were considering, but with one vote each, it is hard to decide which should be considered a best practice.

If I wanted more answers, I would start a bounty. How do I get the community to respond to the answers to my question?

Side Note:
I kinda feel like this question might be "Not Constructive", as it feels like a polling question, which is why I am trying to ask from the "Best Practice" standpoint, not a "what is the best/your favorite". If you still think this is "Not Constructive", I won't be upset if the question gets closed.


That's the beauty of Stackexchange - you have to chose one, and only one, accepted answer to your question. It means that this is the answer you accepted, not the one the community accepted - you did.

But if there's a big difference in votes between your accepted answer, and the most upvoted answer - there's a consolation prize for the one with the most upvoted answer too (apart from gaining reps). That is the Populist gold badge (not yet awarded here though), but I'm sure it'll come. To earn the badge you need to have the:

Highest scoring answer that outscored an accepted answer with score of more than 10 by more than 2x. This badge can be awarded multiple times.

So my advice is - pick the answer that helped you the most.

  • Why the downvote, folks? Why are there so many trolls out there? I'm an anti-troll. This is a decent answer, in my opinion: +1.

  • @BGM Thanks. It could be a nummer of reasons which I've stop worrying about if down voter doesn't post a comment.

    Maybe there are reasons, but it's rude, and isn't constructive. I wonder if it wouldn't be better if folks HAD to post a comment before they could downvote? I see some poor folks over on SO who, on their first post get a downvote without any offer to help them understand. And sometimes it's not even that bad of a question. Trolls!
