Hi

I am using a poor man's issue system
the org file in question has header of the form.




** WAIT \eqref{eq:section5-blowup:1} is referred as an item not an equation!
   :PROPERTIES:
   :ID:       Issues
   :Date:     <2021-11-01 lun>
   :STATUS:   [ ]
   :Is:       11
   :END:

I was wondering whether 

    - I could automatically insert in the HEADER a counter like 
    ** WAIT 1: \eqref{eq:section5-blowup:1} is referred as an item not 
    an equation
   - or in the drawer like this 

** WAIT \eqref{eq:section5-blowup:1} is referred as an item not an equation!
   :PROPERTIES:
   :ID:       Issues
   :Date:     <2021-11-01 lun>
   :STATUS:   [ ]
   :Is:       automatically inserted
   :END:

Regards

Uwe Brauer

I found an answer in
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/27937446/how-to-vote-for-a-heading-in-org-mode

Which works nicely although 

(add-to-list 'org-speed-commands-user '("+" . (plusone)))

Is no longer valid, so I bound that function just to another key.

One question remains: is there any way to take the counter down?

(defun plusone ()
  "Increase the VOTES property in an org-heading by one. Create
the property if needed."
  (interactive)
  (org-entry-put
   (point)
   "VOTES"
   (format "%s" (+ 1 (string-to-number
              (or
               (org-entry-get (point) "VOTES")
               "0"))))))


The genius in me, though 

   (format "%s" (- 1 (string-to-number

Would do that but it does not, strange,

Shouldn't this be the other way around, i.e.
(- (string-to-number ...) 1)
?

idk if this is useful, but i was thinking of doing something similar,
except, automatically for the purpose of recording progress.

as in, the number of times i did something to the task.  in tags not
properties, thus on the header.  like :n_2:

i tried keywords for progress instead, but that is coarse [cannot
"reward" tiny progress] and requires decision making -- is this
started or progressed?  that can be too much cognitive overhead for
me.  should i really be deciding if it has progressed?

also design decisions --- should i sort up or down by progress kw?
up makes more progressed more visible, but usually one puts more
progressed downward [e.g. doneish is toward bottom].  and
too ugly if they are unsorted, with mixed keywords.

so i thought, what if i could just have, say, started, and then, to
increment the counter, i change the keyword to itself, started.

i don't have the capacity to implement this, and i'm not sure it's
what i want, but maybe the change to itself idea is useful.
