I forget the exact details, but accounts get the ability to vote at something like 40 points. If you don't already have it, you should get it soon.
You can start up voting as soon as you have just one up vote. To downvote, you should get 25 up votes. Anyway, my opinion doesn't change that the voting system is totally meaningless for whatever it was intended for.
The intentions were good, and when used properly, we could use the data to promote the best posts out there.
However, it's not really used as it should. We see way too many "agreement votes", and it's difficult to check every single one of them. But, to sort it out, we're not ruling out any possible measure, including chances that other threads could similarly get cleared of votes.
Would it be very difficult to give the options of agree- disagree- recommend to posts?
There are many posts which I think are very interesting an would sugest others read for their own value, but there are also posts that just agree or disagree with my personal preference or thinking.
If it does not get a recommended, the 'score' stays low and downvotes are irrelevant.
( I have never given a down vote and dont know where it would be used, except maybe if a personal insult was involved? )
