On lazyfox.io you can ask questions, answer questions and resolve conflicts between other users.
As answering questions involves receiving rewards paid in Bitcoin Cash the boundaries between questions and tasks might often blur.
This is why the terms "question" and "task" or "answer" and "solution" are used interchangeably throughout this site.
Asking a question: Click "Create Task" to ask a question. An appropriate bounty will help encourage others to take their time and answer it for you.
Solving a task: As mentioned above this can also be interpreted as answering a question. To solve a task you must first apply for it.
If the creator of that task then chooses to accept your application you'll be able to start solving that task. Make sure that you are quick enough in starting to solve the task as the applications
of other users might have been accepted too by the task's creator. There can only ever be exactly one user solving a task so starting to work on a task will make sure that it is "yours"
and that no one else starts the task too. But keep in mind that the solving time will start to run out as soon as you start the task.
Resolving disputes: Once a solution for a task has been submitted the creator of that task has the choice to either accept the solution or reject it. In case of an accepted solution
both the creator and solver of the task will receive some reputation for the tags used by the task and the reward will be paid out immediately.
If on the other hand the creator rejects the solution the conflict resolution mechanism will be started as specified for the task.
To decide whether the solution is worth the reward some combination of random and/or preselected users (as configured for this task) will vote on whether or not they deem the solution worthy the reward.
To be invited in such cases click on "Resolve Disputes" and activate your random and/or preselected notary status. Preselectable notaries can also set their fee here whereas random notaries will always
receive a fee of 1%.
Users are more likely to be selected as a random notary when they have reputation for some of the tags the task uses.
Tags: Tags are a very flexible way of categorizing tasks. Tags can be freely created by users who create tasks but since users search tasks by entering tag names it makes sense
for the community to adopt certain conventions regarding tag names and reuse existing tags.
When for example creating a question regarding a bug in a java program the task creator might think adding the tag
programming-java is a good idea.
But alternatively or additionally he might add the tags
java to be also found by users who are
generally looking for tasks to answer that are concerned with programming.
The more tags your task uses the better will other users be able to find it. Especially since at the moment the only way to search for tasks is by entering the exact name of some of the tags that the task uses.
But be aware that more used tags will also distribute your received reputation over a bigger number of tags after the task was answered successfully resulting in a smaller amount of received reputation per tag.
Reputation - burn it or praise it: Creators and solvers of a task both receive the same amount of reputation if the task was answered by the solving user and the creator accepted that solution.
If the creator does not accept the solution and the task therefor enters the conflict resolution mode neither of them will receive any reputation for that task. Notary users voting on the validity of the solution
will receive some reputation if their vote was within the majority of all votes for that solution.
After the task was archived the creator and solver of that task will be able to give each other some feedback. In case of a successfully answered task feedback can either be positive, negative or neutral.
You are encouraged to only give feedback if your opinion is really not a neutral one.
To achieve this giving either positive or negative feedback will cost you some of your own reputation whereas neutral feedback is defined by inaction.
To be more precise:
- Positive feedback is the act of giving some of your reputation (up to the amount you received for that task) to the other user (called praising).
- Negative feedback is the act of reducing the other users reputation (up to a certain percentage of that user's total reputation) but at the same time losing 50% of that amount yourself (called burning).
When there was a conflict and neither the creator or solver of the task received any reputation positive feedback is not possible. As a result notary users will only be able to receive neutral or negative feedback.
A notary should thereby be judged by the absence of a lot of negative feedback (neutral is good). Another special case with notary users is that they will only be able to give feedback back once they received it but can not
initially burn reputation of the task's creator or solver.
