I greatly dislike it when I spend my time helping someone work out a math problem and someone else comes on and gets the wrong answer, yet the person who was asking the question gives them a medal for doing nothing and helped in no way.

    Yeah it's annoying but thats life. " yet the person who was asking the question gives them a medal for doing nothing and helped in no way." Honestly medals mean nothing its the help that counts if you are helping for a medal i suggest dont help at all. If you see that they have the wrong answer you can say something like this " Hey @thepersonsnamehere I disagree with your answer because...." then show the work. Dont just sit there and watch a person give the wrong answer. Also anyone is free to join in on helping to solve the problem so you can't just hog the problem to yourself someone may THINK they know how to solve it but they possibly dont right? The point is everyone makes mistakes. Also if the person gave the asker the wrong answer (with no work) ask them to show their work or ask how they got the answer or something like that. :)

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not in it for the medal. I didn't mean to make it sound like I did. I was just upset that I spent quite a bit of my time working with this girl only just to have her award someone else for doing something. That's the only reason it bothered me. I really do like being on here, though. The first time I learned about this site, I got really excited, because, as odd as it may seem for some, I love learning more and helping others. I get bored easily during the summer and I love that I can come on here and help others. I honestly think I have spent more time on here this summer than for my summer government class that I am taking. Again, I'm sorry that it seemed like I was complaining that I didn't get a medal for answering a question. It was just everything else that followed that upset me a little.
