Chas, it's the way the system is supposed to work. The database is huge, so if someone searches on a question or car and that question /answer helps them, they can click helpful be it this week, last month or last year. Ex. if I see you answered a question the way I would, I click helpful. Does this help?

Then that is STUPID. If merely the question was commented on that would be ok . This "system " ranks someone that hasn't answered a question in 7 YEARS? To a casual visitor to the site it makes it look like there are Experts around that really haven't been around for 7 YEARS. [ and it disadvantages someone like T___y , that has made comments about this very subject ; but , I don't think they knew that 7 year inactive experts were staying ahead ].......... 7 years without a single answer should not keep someone near the top of the list of experts ;period.

I have made comments to Contact Us on the ticked box issue and got answered that that's just how it is ......and again -How it is is a tad ??

It is the expert ranking being show front and centre for INACTIVE EXPERTS that is a tad ????? ; the answers are not the issue.

# 2 not an answer in 10 months and # 4 not in 2 years. So you can see ;based on your answers, that it is a little misleading.

so # 4 (who has said nothing in 2 years ) gets 20 helpfuls since May 31 ; #18 who is actively answering current questions also gets 20 helpfuls since May 31 ; so #18 never gets to move into # 4 spot ?
