Since few days i am observing a strange thing on Answers active question list , Questions reappear on top of the list without any change (No additional post),
At first i thought it might be a bug related to the timezone later i figured out that the questions are being edited often .
I may be wrong but i believe the posts are being edited for karma points ,
Is this fair ?.
Hmm, Is it fair? I think the concept is fair when you are doing it as an editor. I do not know if editng another message will give me more karma points or not, but I would hope not. If it only gives you 3 points per day, then it may not be bad.
I want to believe that people are editng their own message to bring that message to the top of the queue. I do believe most people are not trying to game the system. It is human nature to follow the rules!
It is my obeservation that questions are not being answered at all. It is precarious for a new Confluence user like me .Are ideas/suggestions so hard to come by even with UI wireframe images being added in questions ? I am not expecting the entire code spoon fed to me. But even a starting point or "yes it can be done using this" is hard to come by. i am stuck since a day and feeling quite low :( without any help from the community which i thought would be thriving like other CMS majors.
I see questions being responded to all the time. This forum is quite active (take this question for example!). There are many times when I try to answer a question that someone else beats me to it. Yes, there will always be questions that do not get answered, but not all questions can be answered by the community of users.

You can easily check that by clicking on the author's name, and then in the profile page look at the Recent Activity.
If posts are being edited regularly they will show up there multiple times.

If it's done to gain karma, then no, that's not fair.
But remember it's karma, so it has its own way of setting things straight...
Create a "shame list". On the old atlassian marketplace, some people edited their plugins just to always show on the "Recently updated" list; they were just changing some punctuation or even a space (that place was a free advertising spot). I do not know if this is still happening, but I find it worse than editing for karma. LOL.
