Sometimes when I visit sites for something specific thing I seen "Is it helpful?" link but I never hit it as yes or no. When people searching for something specific and if they will found in Stack Exchange then they'd prefer it , Even when I found something helpful with SE sometimes I'm glad as I'd like to appreciate it ; so I'm thinking if there were feature like "Is it helpful?". But also I'm thinking as for just nice appreciable question and answer ; otherwise they'll mess it with unanswered questions and incomplete answers. Only with positive perspect . "Appreciate Answer". Sounds so much but wish I could see it.

    You can already appreciate answers by upvoting them. Other than that, I have no idea what you're talking about.

When you're unregistered or without enough reputation to vote, clicking a vote button still does something. The feedback really is stored. Moderators and >10K users have access to a "post feedback" information page. There, they can see - for example - questions that are voted up much higher by real votes than by anonymous/low-rep feedback.

If you really liked a question, you can star it as a favorite regardless of how much reputation you have. Admittedly, this doesn't really affect anything other than letting you easily find the question again and possibly giving the question owner a badge.

I see you're getting close to 200 reputation on one site. Once you get there, you'll receive the association bonus (+100 on every Stack Exchange site you join), which will enable you to, among other things, comment and vote up.

    The "Post Feedback" page no longer exists ... Post Feedback link is broken Commented Oct 29, 2016 at 22:17
  • @DavidPostill On Stack Overflow, it is indeed gone, but weirdly enough, /tools/post-feedback still works on all the other places I can check, including Super User.
