These questions are answered here on Meta (see How does "Reputation" work? and Are there any voting limits? –  Martijn Pieters Sep 12 '12 at 10:48
    
That is not a question, that is a proposition for update into FAQ section –  user195594 Sep 12 '12 at 10:53
    
I know, but one of Meta's purposes is to provide more detailed FAQs than the (deliberately concise) site FAQ page. –  Martijn Pieters Sep 12 '12 at 10:54
    
Ok. I just mentioned it because, they are present on another SO section Vote down questions and answers and I have found such answers just there. –  user195594 Sep 12 '12 at 11:09
    
This is not a question, it is a series of questions, some with answers within the question, I also don't see a proposal –  user223277 Jul 6 '13 at 14:09

FAQ What is reputation? section should be clarified (mentioned in bold below) relying on section Vote down questions and answers:

Reputation is easily found in the Help section:
http://stackoverflow.com/help
As it the connection to votes:
http://stackoverflow.com/help/whats-reputation

Regarding downvotes on questions:

question is voted down -2 (0 to voter) Why?

This answer addresses the reasoning behind penalties for downvoting answers, and not questions. As does the link you have provided. Should downvotes on questions attract a larger penalty?

Regarding number of votes that could be cast per user per day:

to reach the maximum you must vote on at least 10 questions. (Why?)

The link you have provided this also answers your own question.

If you want to understand the psychology of why people vote in certain patterns, I suggest you google some psychology papers.

@cubanacan Why?? It can stay here, I answered the question. Whether it is a good or bad answer, is up to the community to decide. Why are you so interested in dismantling this particular post? I flagged your comment as not constructive, this is such a strange encounter –  user223277 Jul 9 '13 at 12:14
