What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

I think it's much more fair that the questions should be also rated in terms of which proportion of the logged users that viewed that page have upvoted the question.

As a question goes older, it has a tendency of becoming more upvoted, and you can't draw a comparison between older pages and new pages.

With this new system you could. This system could be expanded to user's reputation and answer's reputation.

You can very easily draw a comparison between older questions and newer questions - they're all dated. And even if someone makes a minuscule edit that doesn't change the content much (and resets the clock, so to speak), it should still be apparent by the ages of the answers on the question. –  Daniel DiPaolo Apr 11 '11 at 20:16
    
@Daniel I think this calculation could be done automatically for me –  Jader Dias Apr 11 '11 at 20:19

Disagree. What happens when I view a question after using up all of my daily votes? That question would be unfairly skewed downward because I viewed it but didn't vote on it.

Also, what problem is this trying to solve? Old good questions get more votes? They should! They're good questions!

If you used your daily votes, your absence will be matched eventually by a possible absence in the other questions, given enough time and views. –  Jader Dias Apr 11 '11 at 20:21
