Stack Overflow: All quiet on the Silverlight front

We’ve been on StackOverflow.com for about 5 weeks now.¬†One of the things we have noticed is a relative lack of traffic on the Silverlight tag/area when compared to other more common subjects like C#.

One positive result of the low traffic, is that today I was awarded a Gold “Unsung Hero” badge:
Unsung Hero!

Swells with pride… until you realise: that means at least 25% of 150 or so answers have been marked as “the answer”, but nobody has up-voted them as “useful”.

Luckily we are just there to learn and teach. The ranking system is a nice touch, but if anything seems to lead to a rush of poor answers. People compete to earn points and focus more on speed and less on good content.

Still a very worthwhile place to hang out (for computer geeks anyway) :)

Cheers, Dave
