To make your opinion known on MSE you need both up and downvotes. Given at the moment you need 125 rep to downvote on this site, the voting patterns will be skewed positive because not everyone is active on the site.
This is to be expected for regular Stack Exchange sites as you are expected to be involved in the community before you are deemed knowledgeable enough to be part of the community voice. However, MSE is different because you are voting for the entirety of the Stack Exchange network and you shouldn't need to be active on MSE itself to have a voice on changes to the entire network.
This is especially important for questions like A New Code License: The MIT, this time with Attribution Required because it will effect every network to do with coding at all. This was brought up in this highly upvoted answer.
I would suggest reducing the rep required to downvote on MSE down to 100 (or 101) rep. This is the amount you get for the site association bonus. This is given once you achieve 200 rep on any network site and shows that you are active in at least one community. I think this would be the perfect use of the association bonus in showing that you are a member of the Stack Exchange community.
