Should the weight of question upvotes be reduced?

On Stack Overflow, I frequently get upvoted answers that only receive a +5 upvote, even if it is the first score I receive that day.

I thought +5 only came into effect upon hitting the 200 (or whatever) daily reputation limit.

Any ideas?

Are you sure it's not +5 on questions. – ChrisF Aug 5 '11 at 12:01

Perhaps you're getting confused by your own questions that you've posted answers on? – Brad Mace Aug 5 '11 at 13:25

1 Answer 1

From looking at your profile, those are upvotes on QUESTIONS.

Question upvotes are worth 5 points, and answer upvotes are worth 10.
