I’ve noticed that very few of the questions and comments here have any votes (up or down). Why is that?
Is it because, like me most people here aren’t allowed to vote?
Now, I’m no super-star, but as I’m a member of about a dozen other ask sites, e.g. StackOverflow, unix, server, etc, and who has a modest worth at most of these other sites, I’m perplexed by this one’s lack of votes.
Here, so far, I can’t seem to get more than 1 point, just for existing.
I couldn’t post a screen shot today because that requires 3 points. I couldn’t vote on any of the questions or comments. I’ve even provided a number of answers, but just what does it take to get started with a few points here?
I also just did a bit of investigation. There are 3216 users here with 5 or more points. 29190 users total. Because you need at least 5 points to up-vote, to say that a question was helpful to you, only 11% of users here can give any sort of positive feedback. Now, I’m sure that there are more than 11% here who have something useful to offer. So I think it’s time to ease up the restrictions on up-voting and allow a little more positive feedback.
Also only 5 of the 29190 users have more than 10k points.
And only 26 more have between 1000, and 9999.
So this site is very top heavy I think.
How about share the love a little more.
