Voting on PlanetMySQL
By Duleepa Wijayawardhana on Apr 19, 2009
You might have noticed a couple changes to PlanetMySQL over the last 24 hours... Let me keep it brief. On the regular planet pages you might have noticed a thumbs up and a thumbs down graphics. You can now vote up or vote down entries for PlanetMySQL.
Why did we do this? Primarily we want to let you tell other users what you think are "good" or "bad" articles. Let "collective intelligence" reign!
Now, we've chosen an odd option for this: we've limited the number of votes to five per day per MySQL account (yes, you need to have a MySQL account to vote). Now for the duration of the MySQL Users Conference we will increase the number of votes to ten (10) per account/24 hours starting Monday April 20th evening until Friday April 24th as the number of blog entries tend to go crazy this week.
Why limit? We want you to think about what makes a good blog entry and choose wisely!
We hope that you let everyone know when you see a good article, it ensures that it doesn't get lost in the sea of blogs during the conference and indeed in the weeks to come ahead. We'll probably do a "Top Voted" and "Top Voted of the Week" or some such as time goes on.
