Today I've reached 10 upvotes for one-liner answer to Creating a user with DML. I know we need to work hard to leave the beta etc etc, I've read Vote UP Vote UP Vote UP... but it feels wrong/exaggerated.

Simple question, instant answer, a "Ah ha!" / facepalm moment for the developer, move on. We all probably had similar experience in the past and will make mistakes like that in future. I fail to see what's the difficulty or re-usability value of both the question and the answer though ;) If anything - lesson learned from it could be "check the data model if it fails in runtime even if it compiles ok" (and nobody posted such answer so far).

There are just so many more interesting questions & amazing answers here that deserve upvoting. Do I miss something?

  • Do it, my point is I probably wouldn't upvote it myself :) It really "does not compute" why it went up so much and so fast :/ and the only explanation I can think of is "beta". – eyescream Nov 2 '12 at 16:49
  • Herd effect is... But really, the thing is that we all one time or another have banged our heads after a missing :if/'/;/"/else/or/__c etc etc. has appeared after 2-3 hours of search. So yea, it was a simple answer for a question, but take the badge and flash it !!! – Saariko Nov 2 '12 at 17:41

    @eyescream - While definitely a simple answer, I upvoted the answer because it is clearly the correct answer. I generally will vote for the correct answer even if it is not clever or insightful to me. – Peter Knolle Nov 2 '12 at 18:02

    It was a good answer, Don't be ashamed, be proud! As I mentioned in my comment on @metadaddy's post this caught me out when I was a new developer, and every new developer I've worked with since – Daniel Blackhall Nov 6 '12 at 22:43

Issues like Profile/ProfileId are non-intuitive for developers new to the platform, and it's questions/answers like this that folks stumble on via Google, bringing them our way, so I say take the badge and wear it with pride, o enlightened one!

    This really caught me out when I was a new Saleforce developer, it's a really simple answer but a high quality one. – Daniel Blackhall Nov 6 '12 at 22:41
