Back late last week, I posted the same question to both the ExtJS forum and to Stack Overflow - basically an issue I was running into with layout of some components in IE 6. At the time I wondered if the Stack Overflow one would even get any attention at all – ExtJS is pretty obscure, the tag only having been used six times to date. You would imagine a question on specific forum would have a much better chance of being answered.
Three days later, the ExtJS Forum post has received no response at all where as there were two answers on Stack Overflow, one of which is reasonably helpful, and the other of which completely solved my problem. I guess it’s a testament to the power of offering people some sort of quantifiable ‘reputation’ points.
