We wish people to vote more on questions.

Therefore why not change the

“max 30 votes a day limit”


“no more then 30 votes a day, of which no more than 20 are for answers”

Or even

No more than 5 votes on answers in a day if you have not also voted on a question

Now please come up with something along these lines that will in fact work.

  • witch -> which ;)

    If it was to downvote questions, that's an idea to get behind.

    There's far too much up-voting on questions as it is.

I already spend all my votes on questions and none on answers, because of the electorate badge.

No need for more incentive IMO

  • so should there be a limit on votes for questions os the likes of you don't advoid voting on answers just to get a badge? Commented Feb 19, 2010 at 16:04

Badges are a gentle push to encourage behavior.

This method you mention isn't a push, it's a shove out of a plane with no reserve chute.

We cannot dictate what people vote on; and putting barriers up only pisses people off.

If people want something voluntary (badges) then they conduct a voluntary action (voting for questions and answers).
