I understand what he's saying about the site not being very intuitive. Issues like that are hard for us to perceive because as we gain familiarity with the site, we lose our fresh eyes.

We actually discourage Experts from posting a short, incomplete solution and then using the comment function to flesh out their answer. We call it placeholding (although I realize that that may not have been your intent). The only way you would have known that we discourage that practice would be if you'd received one of the warnings we send out about it. You also could have seen it if you were one of the very few people who read my blog entry Basically, we need to make that information much more visible on the site. Our head of customer support is coming to California at the end of the month. She and I will be working on making a user-friendly set of guidelines that we will post somewhere easily accessible on the site.

Can Rate Limiting Be Configured for an Eth-Trunk on a Modular Switch and How Can the Configuration Take Effect?

The modular switches(such as S2309TP-EI-AC) support rate limiting for inbound traffic on an Eth-Trunk. This function can be configured using the qos car command. After this command is executed:
· If the member interfaces of the Eth-Trunk are located on different LPUs, the configured rate limit applies to each interface individually.
· If the member interfaces of the Eth-Trunk are located on the same LPU, the member interfaces share the bandwidth specified by the rate limit. The bandwidth is distributed on the member interfaces randomly.

How to Write a Great Answer on the FixYa Site.

I recently answered this question on the Site, and thought that I would take a moment to share it with everybody, as a TIp, with the hope that some new experts might take notice.

My intention here is to show the question, and dissect my answer, step by step.

New experts, using a method such as this could benefit greatly...This method could generate you a signifiecnt amount of 4 Thumb ratings.

(Please note that my answers are by no means "the only way"; this is simply a demonstration module)

Here is the link to the original question:

By valeriecares on Oct 27, 2010

Break light coming on dash. Goes off and on. Is it safe to drive? What do I check for under the hood? and where?

My answer is in the BOLD TEXT, commentary continues in "(...parenthesis)"

Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

(...Note the greeting. Saying "Hello", and "Welcome" makes the askers feel that we are talking to them; the references to "Us", and "We" emphasize that the Site is more than one person. It also emphasizes the fact that others experts are available in this area, as well as other areas. This creates the possibility of a returning customer)

(...The "Please allow us to assist you" reinforces the fact that we are going to resolve the issue)

We are sorry that you are having issues with your Toyota.

(...An apology, a 'without taking blame' statement displays concern on our part)

What you are describing, the brake light illuminating on and off may be due to a low brake fluid condition in the brake master cylinder reservoir.

(...Here is where we voice our best opinion; in this case, this is more than likely the asker?s reason for asking for help).

(...Now, we follow up our opinion, with some factual statements)

There is a sensor in the master cylinder that monitors the quantity of the brake fluid present. As the brakes wear, the fluid level drops proportionately.

(...As shown below, we can give the asker the ability to observe the condition first hand.

NOTE: This creates a feeling of relief to the asker when they see that what we are talking about, is in fact the cause of their issue)

What you can do:
Open the hood, and closely examine the fluid level in the plastic reservoir on the brake master cylinder. It is located at the engine side of the firewall, pretty much in line with your turn signal switch. Look at the side of the cylinder reservoir. There will be a "MAX" line, and a "MIN" line. The "Max" is the proper fill level.

(...Being as clear and concise as possible, we try to 'walk' the asker where we want them to go, to see what we want them to see)

If the fluid level is close to the "Min" line, you probably need some front brake pads replaced. This indicates a low fluid condition in the reservoir.

(...Adding some precautions, to protect the property of the Askers is a good thing. Always think as to what the asker could do wrong, some people do not have your talents, skills and abilities, and could damage their item or property if left to their own thinking)

We would not suggest 'topping off' the fluid, just to extinguish the light. When you do get your brake pads replaced, the extra fluid will be forced out of the top of the reservoir, and the brake fluid will get on the paint under your hood. Brake fluid will damage your paint.

(...Adding your best suggestion, as shown below, allows the Asker to make their own choice on how they will proceed with your assistance..this also gives empowerment to the asker.)

Suggestion: Get the front brake pads checked; replace them if they are worn.

(...A polite closing, as shown below, with a request for answering other questions, will create a feeling of you are still there for the asker, if they need you for further information.)

Thanks for choosing FixYa today. If you have any other questions, please feel free to get back to me

..........Hopefully, this little tip will help some people out, to better their answers. Better answers will get you higher ratings...and the customers will return for more assistance.

It all starts with a great answer.....Yours.

Thanks for reading my Tip!

He5t washer keeps flashing F71.

The F71 and F70 are difficult error codes to pin down even for a technician.
The F71 indicates a user interface heartbeat error while the F70 indicates a heartbeat error in the central control.
There is a quick test you can try to resolve the problem. 1. Lock the control by pressing and holding the cycle signal button. 2). Press the Power button.
3). If the lock light flashes when you press the power button it indicates the center interface was able to take the input and the Right hand User Interface received the DCV signal from the Center User Interface but since the display did not light. This indicates an issue with the Right hand user Interface.

How do know what graphics card is compatable with my motherboard

Regarding your MSI K8N NEO2-Platinum (MS7025) Motherboard, it should have one AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) 1.5V 4X/8X slot and an nVIDIA® nForce3 Ultra Chipset. There are a few links below I think will greatly help you.

Click here for information on the motherboard:

Click here for information on the nVIDIA nForce Ultra Chipset.
(a snippet from that page)
Connectivity - AGP interface
Supports AGP3.0 - 0.8 V signaling for 8× and 4× with Fast Writes data transfers
Supports AGP2.0 - 1.5 V signaling for 4×, 2×, and 1× modes with 4× and 2× Fast Writes data transfers
Supports graphics address remapping table (GART) features
The AGP3.0 8× 533 MT/s (million transfers per second) interface provides the user with the ability to upgrade the external graphics card, thus avoiding obsolescence. An external AGP add-in card achieves higher performance than it would on existing platforms.
AGP interface is backward compatible with the AGP2.0 specification.
Click here for AGP information:
And last, but not least YES!!, there is a WIKI page on the AGP.
(a snippet from that page)
As of 2009 [update], few new motherboards feature AGP slots. No new motherboard chipsets are equipped with AGP support, but motherboards continue to be produced with older chipsets that have AGP support. PCI Express allows for higher data transfer rates, has more robust full-duplex support, and also supports other devices.

Fixya rating math

Your question has been echoed by nearly every expert that has been rated more than three times. Split those numbers into two categories:
  1. Rating Percentages
  2. Rating Totals
The totals not adding up is easy to answer. The term coined by many in the lounge is 'Drive-By' ratings. You may know it by now, but here is how the ratings work.
  • A problem is posted
  • You post a solution
  • Someone else posts a solution
  • When the problem is redisplayed both solutions show. The Asker has not yet rated either.
  • The other solution has the four rating choices (FY, H, TFT, IA). If you felt like it, you have the ability to rate that solution, as does anyone else who happens to 'drive-by'.
  • Yours does not. Self rating is frowned upon. However, everyone else can rate it.
  • Say someone does just that and rates a FixYa. The FixYa shows on top of the solution. Everyone but the person that rated you can still rate you.
  • The Asker then Rates your solution a Fixya.
  • The solution will still show a FixYa up top.
  • At the bottom, Rating Locked! Asker has rated this solution as FixYa. No more ratings can be made.
  • There are still two votes there for one solution. There can be more.
  1. A solution is unlocked as long as the Asker has not rated it.
  2. An unlocked solution is ratable by anyone but the providing expert.
  3. Once an Asker rates a solution, it is locked. Only the Asker can change the rating at that point. All others are locked out
  4. A solution can be rated many times while unlocked.
  5. You can only rate a solution once.
  6. There is no easy, after the fact way to tell how many times a particular solution has been rated. You can't just eyeball it and be able to tell.
That's why (total votes + total unrated solutions <> total solutions)

The percentages are a whole different story. There has been speculation by the truckload on the math that makes up the rating percentages. The proofs don't proof.

I was a math major, consistently scoring in the 99th percentile in everything from Algebra to Advanced Trigonometry. I've got 25 years of data processing experience, I program in 13 languages, I'm a system developer, programming engineer and dozens of other titles. In short, I've got applicable skills in the area.

That said, I still haven't reverse engineered the algorithyms that come up with those percentages. So don't beat yourself up. If you want the algorythm that it is supposed to be based on, let me know. It is close, but there is still some unknown variable being factored into the mix.

Hopefully this clarified a portion of your curiousity

Two sidebars:
One involves a Generac 6.6kv generator that I'll put into an AskMe

The other is only a suggestion is from one Expert to another. There is goodwill to be garnered by exercising a measure of professional courtesy when rating fellow experts.

We each know the difficulty in maintaining percentages. The fact that many Askers do not understand the ratings system (how could they?) when they cast their votes.

Knowing this, I would rather not rate someone, than rate them down. This is only an opinion and is meant to be a constructive positive critique. I hope you interpret it that way.

With your background, I anticipate asking you many questions in the near future. I look forward to starting these interactions in the same way this one ends, on a positive note.

Once again, I hope this at least explains the total side of the ratings.
