At the very least make the voting limit a function of the number of questions on the topic.
I can't think if any good reason why posting questions is limited as well. The whole point of SO is that good content gets floated to the top. Your reset basically says:
- We users are not to be allowed to go out and play without adult supervision
- We are too stupid to figure out how to make good use of the site
- We users should do all the work in making the metrics easy to understand
- The SE/SO platform doesn't really do what it claims (make good content bubble up)
I may have more later.
I actually decided to give this new set of rules a try - but I can't get over the fact that votes and questions are a scarce resource so I am not going to bother. Based on the history of the SE platform and the "do-overs" I don't really trust the process enough to spend more time and effort in something that seems like it just keeps getting moved and taken away.
I tried it. I didn't like it. I can't get past the fact that it now all seems like a waste of my time.
