When voting on a couple of answers today, a message popped up saying something like

You haven't voted on questions in a while! Questions need votes too!

  • is this new?
  • what triggers this? As of this moment, I have way more question votes than answer votes (346 to 268). (My stats don't say how many of my 15 votes today were on questions, though.)
  • how do I make it stop? (besides voting on questions)
  • I already vote on questions, maybe even too much since there are more answers than questions. Nov 28, 2011 at 15:30
  • @MattFenwick Make it stop? How many times has this happened? Once? nothing to cry home about.

  • I got the same popup. After upvoting your question, I feel better now.

  • is this new?

It's been around for at least half a year. See this blog post.

  • what triggers this?

From the aforementioned blog post:

That is, if you haven’t voted on at least one question in the last 15 votes you cast — you’ll now get the “you haven’t voted on questions in a while; questions need votes too!” reminder every time you vote until you do.

  • how do I make it stop? (besides voting on questions)

You just vote on a question, period. There is literally nothing easier or quicker to do than that, much less anything that would help.

If you don't think of the ponies, please, at the very least, think of the kittens.

    definitely annoying - should be changed to nudge occasionally and/or relate the nudge-frequency to the answer/question vote proportion

    Why would anybody downvote this answer when it has a picture of a pitiful kitten with a red X over it? Jan 2, 2012 at 21:58
