I'm pleased to announce the launch of the Cisco Endorsed Program. You have been selected as an Expert Contributor based on your 2012 participation and expertise. You will now be able to endorse any discussion reply (other than your own) within the Cisco Support Community.
Anytime you Endorse a reply, it will award the author 5 points and be marked with an endorsed icon along with your user ID. However, when you endorse a reply, you will no longer be able to rate it since you have already given it a 5 rating by endorsing it.
That reply will also be paired with the question just as the current Q&A pairing. On the discussion level pages, the Endorsed icon will appear indicating to other users there is a response within the discussion that is of high-value. CSC users will also be able to filter content based on endorsement.
Why Endorse Content:
Brings a higher level of credibility to content
Makes quality answers more visible
Helps reduce those pesky repetitive questions
Allows other members to have a greater sense of recognition knowing a Cisco employee found their content valuable
Showcases your expertise by not only creating responses, but also identifying other high value content
How to Endorse Content:
If you have endorsement capabilities, the following button will appear on all threads but your own:
If you feel the reply is excellent or the author simply didn’t mark the response as answered, click on the button which will endorse, and award the reply 5 pts:
There are numerous ways all CSC users can find endorsed content:
Message Level as well as Q&E pairing:
As the program evolves expect more to come! If you have any questions or comments please let me know.
