Xiao Wang's confusion
This is the epitome of multiple true stories.
When Xiao Wang first learned programming, he raised many related questions at SegmentFault. With the help of enthusiastic people in the community, Xiao Wang's problems have been solved one by one, and the programming technology has progressed rapidly.
Later, Xiao Wang became stronger. Looking back at my original questions, I feel that they are very white, and they are my own black history, and I can't wait to delete them all. However, these problems are visited by a large number of users every day, they all encountered the same or similar problems, and helped countless users who were the same as Xiao Wang. These answers have been updated and iterated by many users over the years, and they are the essence of the programming world.
If Xiao Wang deletes the question, it means that the hard work contributed by the enthusiastic people in the community will also be erased, which is very unfair. We understand the pain in Xiao Wang's heart, and we also care about the unknown contributors to the community.
The first thing we thought about was anonymity, and Xiao Wang displayed his content anonymously. However, anonymity may violate the "Creative Commons License" (CC license) adopted by the community, which is not conducive to the sharing and dissemination of knowledge; at the same time, anonymity may be used as a means of evasion and evasion of responsibility.
We learned from Wikipedia, the world's largest user of the CC protocol, and learned about the concept of Community Wiki by Big Brother StackOverflow. Community Wiki itself is designed to lower the threshold for content collaboration, and after our research, we found that this concept can also transform Xiao Wang's "question" into Xiao Wang's "contribution question" to the community. In this way, the conflict between Xiao Wang's demands and community contributors can be resolved.
Authors can apply for converting their content into a community wiki in the "Operations" section below their content. After approval, the content will be signed as "Community Wiki".
After becoming a community wiki, there are some rule changes:
- Subsequent votes for this wiki content no longer affect the original author
- Voting by other users on wiki content does not affect the voter's reputation
- The original author will still be rewarded with medals associated with the wiki's content
- The original author can still receive edit alerts and comment alerts for the wiki content
- The threshold for editing wiki content has been lowered, and users with reputation >= 100 can participate in editing and it will take effect immediately (original need 2000 reputation)
This function has been launched. We hope that all users who have the same demands as Xiao Wang, as well as users who want to hide their achievements and fame, can use this function. SegmentFault thanks you for your efforts. If you encounter any difficulties when using it, feedback is welcome
