Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

We wish people to vote more on questions.

Therefore why not change the

“max 30 votes a day limit”


“no more then 30 votes a day, of which no more than 20 are for answers”

Or even

No more than 5 votes on answers in a day if you have not also voted on a question

Now please come up with something along these lines that will in fact work.

If it was to downvote questions, that's an idea to get behind. – random Feb 19 '10 at 9:07
There's far too much up-voting on questions as it is. – nb69307 Feb 19 '10 at 9:10
Meh! The electorate badge is bad enough. – dmckee Feb 19 '10 at 21:32
up vote 3 down vote accepted

I already spend all my votes on questions and none on answers, because of the electorate badge.

No need for more incentive IMO

so should there be a limit on votes for questions os the likes of you don't advoid voting on answers just to get a badge? – Ian Ringrose Feb 19 '10 at 16:04

Badges are a gentle push to encourage behavior.

This method you mention isn't a push, it's a shove out of a plane with no reserve chute.

We cannot dictate what people vote on; and putting barriers up only pisses people off.

If people want something voluntary (badges) then they conduct a voluntary action (voting for questions and answers).
