in reply to Voting system idea..

I agree with castaway.

Voting is not so much a must do as it is a responsability, so throwing votes away just to get a XP bonus seems wrong to me.

The PM Voting system is a fantastic idea. Have you noticed that this kind of thing can't be found on other popular developer forums? I think we're so used to it that we don't see how unique and creative idea that is.

As of encouraging the user to vote... well, the node content should be the only reason a user is encouraged to upvote or downvote a particular node and even if we can't always be sure a user does it based on this (take this exactly node for an instance, it was downvoted and I can't see why), we should not encourage a user to do it otherwise.

(Hope I could get my point, since my english is not very good).
