StackExchange is a website that uses gamification. I am curious if punishment is a suitable method in gamification.
I recently posted a question on this site on how to improve my survey about UX and gamification. https://ux.stackexchange.com/questions/87320
I checked yesterday. It was flagged and I had no notification prior to that, and no way to respond to the flagged post, and boy was I surprised. Thus, I lost all reputation points that I had gained. How does this make a person feel after something like this happens. A one strike and you're out certainly does not make for a good user experience. Is there a better way to handle situations like this?
