When a question is answered, it would be useful to know whether the answer came from a user or a Jolla employee. Just to understand how reliable/authoritative that answer is.

Totally agree. I'we seen too many "answers" that really are just comments or opinions, so I get the feeling I can't trust all the answers to be correct.

Good idea.

There is a reason why the karma system exists. But I do agree that it would be nice to have some sort of user title like "Sailor (Jolla Employee)" "Sailfish Pioneer" "Community Cornerstone" "Honorable Member" "New Matey"

@tapio.oling - OT, but I'm hoping that moderators (whoever they are) have the power to convert "answers" that aren't really answers into comments.

@Milhouse As it says in the help (or FAQ?) the users are the moderators, so you should simply ask the one who made a non-answer to delete it, and if he/she doesn't do it within reasonable time delete it yourself (if you've got enough karma)

My personal opinion: Let's not create artificial walls between employees and rest of you here ;)

We should however implement a "Jolla answer" tag for a answer, if it's deemed to be the official truth ;)

Sure, the tag works. Thanks for the answer.

good, @Stskeeps start tagging :-)

Yes, sounds good!

When I compare this community to talk.maemo.org this is one that talk.maemo.org should have been yeas ago. I don't think so that dichotomy between staff and customers should be artificially generated.

I feel that this AskBot rocks and it's really good way to keep discussion quite close to on-topic which benefits both the company and user community.

Karma system is excellent and works quite well. It's enough.

@Bale, @Stskeeps: the badges are now on! No artificial walls, just a way to better engage with our vibrant and enthusiastic community :)
