Please be aware that the SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be shut down on August 29th, 2024 when all it's content will be migrated to the SAP Community.

Well, frankly said, I might be a critic. German speakers might relate to "Bedenkenträger" (sorry for the umlaut!).

How can I claim that reputation in SQLA easily?

I thought "Bedenkenträger" meant "I want the SQLA Administrator to beat me with a stick", but that just shows I should stick to English :)

Folks have up-voted your question back to zero points! <g> ( for people who are new to SQLA, this is not StackOverflow, we don't take points quite as seriously here :)

@Mark: The behaviour is still the same on the new forum, isn't it (though the - errhh - "discussion" might not fit anymore)?

@Volker: Yes, AFAIK the behaviour is the same on the two sites.

Then I think it might not be a reason to re-tag for the SQLA1...

(19 Mar '11, 07:35) Volker Barth

Yes. I did pause a moment before retagging this one, but went ahead since the discussion was specifically about how SQLAv1 worked (i.e. stackexchange). Now that the discussion has been extended to talk about SQLAv2 my previous statement is no longer true :-)

It's that easy:

Just upvote a question or answer by accident and then try to redo your upvote by clicking on the downvote button.

You might think this will undo your upvote but that's not the case: It immediately works as a downvote (and you aren't asked whether you mean to do so).

Well, what have you expected? A downvote is a downvote. To undo an upvote, just click on the upvote button again. (And to undo a downvote, guess, just click on the downvote button again.)

And please note: Once you clicked on the downvote button, you get your "Critic" badge, and you will hold it no matter whether you left any downvotes permanently or not...

Call me "Critic by accident":)

Oops, i accidently downvoted your answer (ok, more kind of intentially). But due to your fine description I could undo that easily. +1 !

Eventually, maybe after Christmas, there will be some more traffic on SQLA, and you guys will have something to do <g>

(18 Dec '09, 19:48) Breck Carter

...otherwise the SQLA Administrator might gonna beat you ... (cf. Breck's comment on my question) :)

(20 Dec '09, 12:05) Volker Barth

Oh, I see the Innsbruck beta is available - so no more time for "silly" FAQ questions - Back to the real challenges:)

(20 Dec '09, 12:16) Volker Barth

According to the Badges description here, you are "awarded" this badge for your first "DOWN" vote.

Sorry, Chris, I was too slow with my own answer, as you might see from that. It wasn't considered a "real" question but a description of unexpected SQLA behaviour (IMHO) ... However, this comment itself contains critic. Guess now I really earned the badge:)
