Having been so long in SDN, have you ever rated your own “responsiveness” quotient in SDN forums? The term “responsiveness” as framed by Marilyn is the level to which you respect the replies to your question, award points and eventually close the thread.
Although a lot of questions are being posted in SDN, we hardly care to close these threads. For this purpose I have created a Firefox plugin named “SDN User Profile”. The SDN User Profile plugin for Mozilla Firefox intends to help you know your responsiveness, so that more people would be keen to answer your questions. And also it shows the responsiveness of others in the forums too. Having a better rating would mean a better SDNer.
A sample of how it would look in the forums:
The user names are highlighted as per the following legend:
More information can be viewed by right clicking on the user name and selecting View SDN Profile in the context menu…
And the final output:
It would be much better if all the users show a good response rate, which would then mean that the SDN forum would be a better place for collaboration and knowledge sharing.
