These are questions I've had for months. What gives? How do you exactly get a myTake promoted?
Furthermore, why do we have such a ridiculous system where no one sees your myTake at all if it's not promoted? Like it should still at least show up normally in the feed and such, like normal questions though.
Wow they finally promoted it, of course right after I disavowed it >.<
I've always felt that the entire 'mytake' thing didn't work.
Much like 'search'. People do not come here and search for information. Once anything is off the live feed, it's gone. People find it annoying, not helpful, if you comment on a month old question.
If they really want something like this to work, they need a navigable library of mytakes that get upvoted based on how interesting the take or subsequent discussion are. They don't have that, so spending time on mytakes is pointless, really.
The only reason to write one is so instead of giving the same answer over and over you can refer to the mytake you wrote, but that seems odd, so whatever.
In any case, your mytake is actually a question, i think they prefer mytakes where people say things, whether well supported or complete garbage.
