I just failed an audit with this honeypot question. I thought it was a succinct and well-formulated question so I upvoted it. This was obviously wrong of me since the question was closed as NARQ.
But I don't think it was obvious. The question was well-formulated and the asker said his current code was working to some extent. I am no C++ programmer so perhaps I should have skipped it, but I really thought it looked like a good question, worthy of at least an upvote from me.
My questions then:
- Are we supposed to be restrictive in handing out upvotes? Should I be more careful even outside the review system and only upvote questions I know are technically correct?
- Do anyone else agree that this might have been a good question?
- How is this even a NARQ?
Another example just popped up: I also failed this audit which obviously have code for starting a transition. The question is how to call an external function when the transition is done. Once again it was closed as NARQ and I failed the audit. I see nothing wrong with the question, there are no comments indicating anything wrong with it and looking back there is even a good answer.
