This question is related to meta: Begging for Votes
I received this comment telling me not to "beg" for upvotes/mark as correct.
I posted the "offending" comment because the OP was asking his first question, and because he left a comment thanking me for my help and telling me he had found the solution thanks to me. Generally in that case I remind the user to please mark my answer as correct and/or upvote if they found it helpful.
I do NOT ask for upvotes/accepts unless the user is new and leaves a "thanks" comment instead of upvote/accept.
I don't consider this begging, I consider this reminding new users not to leave answered questions marked as unanswered, and to use the feedback system. I can see where mentioning an upvote might be considered a different matter than accepts.
Was I in the wrong? If so, what line did I cross?
As one of the commenters pointed out, I do feel the question linked below directly addresses the topic I wanted to bring up. I'll avoid mentioning upvotes in the future. Thanks.
