I've been using Stackoverflow for a while now, and I want to know if I should vote for an old question/answer that has been useful for me and has already 18 votes for example?

So, make it 19. –  Brady May 21 '12 at 18:13
    
@MichaelMrozek I just don't see the point on adding more votes for an answer that has already many votes, that's all. that's why i'm asking. –  Anas May 21 '12 at 18:16

There is nothing to stop you from doing so, and it is actually encouraged.

If the question helped, give the asker some rep.

If the answer helped, give the answerer some rep.
