Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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
  • I'm upvoting questions if I think they can be useful (maybe I need an answer later on)
  • also on answers, or things I know they're correct
  • I don't upvote to answers on the same question when I already gave a answer (competition)
  • I downvote only on glaring misleading answers and hope the upvotes will decide.

Somtime I think somthing is cool or not but rather exeptions.

Do you think this is balanced?

Not voting for answers (good or bad) in competition with your own? For shame. Or do you not trust your ow judgment? – dmckee Jun 3 '10 at 0:46

Well I basically follow these two rules:

  • If it makes me happier than I was before I read it upvote.
  • If it makes me sadder than I was before I read it downvote.

Sounds like criteria for Joke Overflow. – Gnome Jun 2 '10 at 22:44
That is basically what I go by. If it is a good answer, it makes me happy. If it is a bad answer it makes me sad. – jjnguy Jun 2 '10 at 23:02
