My spidey-sense has detected a slight change in paleohacks voting patterns. There appears to be a similar number of votes for answers and comments, but fewer for questions. Is this true? Look at the twelve most recent questions. Only two of them... (more)

I try to vote up questions and answers that I like. I have noticed, however, that some people who have lots of votes don't seem to vote much for others. What's up with that? Nobody gets rep points unless others vote for you. I don't think people... (more)

Hi, If someone votes you down or you lose reputation because of something you've said either due to incorrect information or being off topic etc, how do we know why? While I totally agree that the voting should be anonymous, it might be helpful... (more)

It would be cool if a downvote was accompanied by a requirement to click a dropdown box with a choice of reasons. example: Offensive tone and/or attitude Disagree with specific fact(s) and or opinion presented Not relevant to discussion at... (more)

We have a ridiculous number of upvotes to use every day, yet I see popular questions that haven't broken ten votes, with dozens of answers unsorted by voting. If a thread is interesting enough for me to click through to, I'll upvote it. If there... (more)

Here's my voting policy. I try to vote up a lot. I didn't used to do this, but in the last four months I've gone from the 200 range in upvotes to the 800 range. Much of this increase is due to the fact that I've started voting lots and lots of... (more)

This is not a duplicate question. All the other threads that discuss the rebranding cannot also serve as a suggestion box for names. Please note I have marked this as Community Wiki given the nature of this question and its answers. Please keep... (more)

I recognize full well that this could be viewed as a highly subjective question. Everyone has their own opinion and perspective. Rock on. But from what I'm observing in the voting patterns with regards to questions specifically, it seems that the... (more)

How you suggest we use 'voting' is how I have been using voting. I can't speak for others. I do think we, as a community, could vote on answers more prolifically. Good answers don't get nearly as many votes as they could, or as I hope they... (more)

Not sure if it can be set up, but it would make more sense if people had to defend why they down vote a question or answer. Otherwise it can be someone in a bad mood or PO at someone for past feuds. Ultimately is all game playing but have some... (more)

I know I've hit a limit before, but I have no idea how many it is, and I didn't see this information in the FAQ or through searching. How many upvotes are we allowed to give each day?

I've looked all over and can't find an answer to this. How do you vote on a question's merit? EDIT (by Patrik): I am glad this question was asked as I want to encourage all PaleoHackers to use all of their votes on a daily basis. You have 30... (more)

I recently, in a fit of reactionary emotion, downvoted an answer. I immediately thought better of it, and wanted to put it back to how it was. I was left with the choice of upvoting or downvoting, so I chose the former, since I thought it was... (more)

Question is: If I am caught creating a dummy account to vote my answers up on PaleoHacks what happens? 1) We will find you. PaleoHacks.com registers suspicious voting patterns and brings them to my attention. 2) We will embarrass you. That... (more)
