    Yes, most definitely. That's just asking for abuse.
    It feels like there was not much thinkering behind the rating system, like someone just did it in an hour without thinking of any consequences.

    Marking your own answer as best is sometimes required but should not count towards your own statistics. Just like rating your comments should not influence your own stats.

  • Robin Chatterjee

    Also remove the ability to mark ones own answer as a best answer at least not until a decent amount of time passes... 

  • Robin Chatterjee

    Or perhaps it would be enough not to have votes on ones own comments count in the rankings. Again the issue here is that if a comment has zero ratings one can't distinguish if its the apathy of the forum users or the unworthiness of the comment :) 

  • Christophermaggiulli
    I think we should remove the ability to vote on ones own comments.

    I think ideas also seem to be highly underrated - of course since ideas are not enabled for most of IaaS and PaaS that is a good thing for us IaaS and PaaS enthusiasts.

    It's strange. After I visited or wrote a comment it got changed to stars for me so I guess a script changed something in my settings. Now I see stars everywhere. I agree with your hotel statement. I also think the rating has to be revised. I mean what's the point of having a black diamon leader board if you can get there after 60 comments in the forum and by rating everything. Doesn't make sense to me. I think they should reduce giving stars to max 5 points. (receiving can be higher)

  • Robin Chatterjee

    When I look at the service cloud forums I see 5 stars ... perhaps its an anomaly since you have been a member for longer ?


  • Robin Chatterjee

    It’s also important to note that not every comment must be rated  - to translate this  in your original analogy  "It’s also important to note that not every hotel must be rated"

    But if you have an unrated hotel it generally implies that it is substandard not that it is undiscovered. So in effect all good guides rate all hotels. and that is the conflict with these two paradigms. 

  • Robin Chatterjee

    In this forum ratings have almost as high a value as comments which is probably not a good idea...:) that's why if you diligently rate all comments you will

    1. Be rebuked by the forum mantainers and

    2. Find your self on the leaderboards :)

    Of course hopefully this will encourage more people to rate posts :)

    Hi Christopher,

    Thank you for being a valued member of Oracle Cloud Customer Connect.

    We are working on adding badges for users who attended OOW and should be done within a week or two as we have to do a number of checks prior to adding the badges for the users.

    There is no way to add a back up email to this account, as the portal access is integrated with Oracle SSO. You should be able to reset your password from SSO, if you forget it. If you no longer have access to your email, you can reach out to us at cloud and we can review the options at that time.

    I also wonder if you guys maybe have a different rating system.
    I mean, for me I don't understand how someone can have 124.000 points with only 186 comments so I think you guys have a different rating system right?

    In the SVC forum this would simply be impossible with only 186 comments and 11 posts

    Creation: 11 x 10 = 110
    Comments: 186 x 20 = 3720
    Best answer 186 x 50 = 9300

    That's around 13.000 points which would mean that around 111.000 points would come from ratings. That doesn't make any sense to me :-)

  • Sebastiaan Draaisma

    In the service cloud forum we don't have stars. Only thumbs up or down which seems to be 20 points
