Sorry if this has already been discussed, but what happened to giving medals for good questions? I absolutely LOVED that feature. I am a teacher, and that's mostly what I try to do on here. As a teacher, I have tremendous appreciation for a good learner. Someone who asks good questions, thinks hard, puts forth a lot of effort, and works with you to make learning happen makes for a very satisfying teaching experience. I'd love a way to show appreciation when I encounter such a learner on here.

    I also think that in some cases it will encourage students to try to learn that way rather than just asking for an answer =/ Gosh it's discouraging to give a well thought out explanation of a concept and get the response, "Okay, but what's the answer?" In short, I'd like you to bring back the "Good question" button or otherwise let me reward people for learning well. Thanks for all your work! The new system seems like a very good one. =D

    @SmoothMath, definitely enjoy hearing that your feedback! We're considering a few options, and discussions will be taking place this week. I'm going to tag @cshalvey, @shadowfiend, @farmdawgnation, @mattfeury, and @darthsid so that they all see this as well as we make a decision.

    Cool =D Thanks for considering it. And in a minor, but related point, it's a little weird that I can award someone the "best answer" for their own question. Perhaps adding a "good question" button could replace this.

    Particularly good point as it's silly for SmartScore to incorporate medals for asking when there are no more medal for asking capabilities. I add my voice to reintroduction of the "good question" button.
