Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
To get in on Chats its a luck of the draw once you are qualified to receive them. A lot of us believe there hare some experts that have usurped the system in some manner but no one's figured that out yet. So, its really a matter of luck and where you are on the Intenet Trunk. I know a few who are on a T-3 and they still don't get in on Chats that easily. A whole lot depends on your ISPs server and traffic burden..
For Tips and Tricks you want to find a problem area we get a lot of hits on that you have some knowledge with. It takes a lot of poking around in the history list of unanswered questions and you'll stumble upon a particular question that many others have ticked the button that they have the same problem. There are a lot of those in the system. Once you have a hot topic and can write a working solution for it that all will respond to, post the link to your tip to all those users so they get to your tip rather than respond to a solution. In a Tip they can either vote Helpful or Not. This equates to
FixYas and TFT, no chance for an IA.Given that option most people vote Helpful and you get another FixYa. And these votes off Tips used to generate a lot of bumps in your profile.
I think the Staff have turned that feature off for now as it was really getting abused by buddies collaborating between themselves to bump each other's profile by voting up via Tips. Once they have that under control, soon I suspect, then voting off Tips will return to your over all count.
Once that's back in play again, that's one way to get you score up. There have been so many people banned in the last few months its laughable. Now that staff have scripts they can run and find unlocked FixYa votes there will be more and more scammers gone. That is good for the honest expert.
For more on Tips if you haven't seen this already you can read my Tip on writing tips.
To be fair Scott Ellin wrote a quick and dirty method that works quite well. I just went into much more detail, that's all. He had asked me how to write a tip and I wrote this Tip above on his request. Then he wrote a short version which is fine by me. I usually write very long instructive solutions. That's probably because I taught Information Systems and Technology in College and had to write lectures.
Good Luck, nice to meet you.
