You do know that You have the ability to CHANGE vote? If You have voted "No opinion" You can change to Promote or Demote and then back again without any problem. But why would You then completely retract the vote? I don't understand.
I do not favour this on the basis that an idea jam inside a corporation should represent an effort to clarify. If answers were coming back that did not imatch the intended question it may add value to clarify the question. In this environment we should have trust that the person writing the question will be editing it in a responsible manner.
Just a bit more info on this one. We've tracked down what seems to be a Dojo 1.3.2 bug. It's already been fixed in future versions of Domino so for the moment we're going to leave it and see what's happening with upcoming versions of Domino. In the meantime, apologies to Chrome users (such as myself!)
I see Chrome is now reported as being the #3 browser jumping ahead of Safar, so I guess we all need to pay this browser more attention when developing/testing our Web apps. (Note to self: Install Chrome browser)
@Craig. I agree. I wasn't proposing this as a replacement but rather as an enhancement to the existing model for interacting with the developers. In many cases I would actually prefer that time was taken to research/consider a question before the answer is provided.
Mike - Like IdeaJam, IQJam also allows roles to be assigned by IQSpace. This is already built in. You will notice on IdeaJam that Joyce Davis and her team from IBM do show their comments in different colors. So far they are they only group from IBM who signed up as IdeaJam IdeaSpace admins.
Maybe something to ask the developers at Lotusphere 2010? :-)
Another idea would be to allow IQJam to assign roles to users, and have the IBM developers simply be identified on this site easier. For instance, Bruce shows as 'blue' when he posts. IBM developers should be 'content experts', who show as 'Yellow' when they post.
I think that most every post on this particular ideajam site is an 'Ask the Developers' plea:)
I'm promoting this (as it's a good idea), but I think there's a very different dynamic between the "in person, recorded only in memory, speak from the hip" concept of ATD and the "in writing, considered, permanently etched in the interwebs" approach being proposed.
@4 - thanks, Bruce! I thought 8.5.1 was flawless? 8-)
While I'm complaining about Chrome support....
The Login fields on the top right of the homepage for IdeaJam.net don't work properly in Chrome:
You enter you ID & PW, and hit Login, and it just sits there. It obviously does something, though, because if you refesh you get the "Post my idea" and "Dashboard" images/buttons, but you have to manually refresh the screen.
