Things to know for membership and the QuestionKID Software!

The following is basic information about our forum. Please read this before posting questions or answers if you are unfamiliar with this sort of forum. Click on any question to show or hide the answer.
What kinds of questions can I ask here? Most importantly, questions should be relevant to our community. Before you ask, please make sure to search for a similar question. You can search for questions by their title or tags.
What kinds of questions should be avoided? Please avoid asking questions that are not related to our community, too subjective or argumentative.
What should I avoid in my answers? QuestionKID.Com is a question and answer site - it is not a discussion group. Please avoid holding debates in your answers as they tend to dilute the quality of the forum.

For brief discussion, or to thank someone for their answer, please post comments, not answers.
Who moderates this online platform? The short answer is: you, you and you. This website is moderated by the users. Points system allows users to earn rights to perform a variety of moderation tasks. The platform is being maintained by an Advisory Panel consisting of educationists, teachers and experts. But the moderation and earning points are all automated by this software.
How to change my picture (gravatar), and what is gravatar? The picture that appears in user profiles is called a gravatar, which means globally recognized avatar.

Here is how it works: You upload your picture (or your favorite alter ego image) to the website gravatar.com from where we later retrieve your image using a cryptographic key based on your email address.

This way all the websites you trust can show your image next to your posts and your email address remains private.

Please personalize your account with an image - just register at gravatar.com (just please be sure to use the same email address that you used to register with us). The default gray image is generated automatically.
How does point system work? When a question or answer is voted up, the user who posted it will gain points. These points serve as a rough measure of the QuestionKID Advisory Panel's trust in that person. Various moderation tasks are gradually assigned to the users based on those points.

For example, if you ask an interesting question or useful answer, it will likely be voted up. On the other hand if the question is poorly-worded or the answer is misleading - it will likely be voted down. Each up vote on a question will generate 1 points, whereas each vote against will subtract 1 points. The following table lists points gained per activity:

Posting a question: 20 points
Selecting an answer for your question: 30 points
Per up vote on your question: 10 points
Per down vote on your question: -10 points
Limit from up votes on each question: 100 points
Limit from down votes on each question: -30 points
