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 inclined to give out upvotes to newbies who are writing clear responses on

But, if voting on questions potentially affect things on my homepage, that's a negative unwanted side effect of this behavior, since the things on my review page aren't correlated to my interests.

Does this happen? Can it be adjusted to not happen like that?

What do you mean with "my homepage"? – kiamlaluno May 10 '11 at 0:52
@kiam: the new homepage determines what to show you based on a number of inputs... The question is if voting is included in that determination. – yhw42 May 10 '11 at 1:38
I think this is a positive inclination, +1 for asking the question. – Cody Gray May 10 '11 at 8:35

No, we do not look at voting patterns when determining how to filter the "interesting" tab for the front page on Stack Overflow.
