Being an abbot, I have 25 votes to use every day.
However, I often find myself left with a substantial
number of unspent votes (lets put the average number
at 15). Lately, it started to worry me..
I'm wondering if it's a sign of inadequate participation
in monastery matters? Or could it be lack of appreciation
of nodes posted by other monks (I'd like to hope not!)?
This also could be tied to being overly greedy and not
willing to spend a vote on an otherwise worthy node.
At times I think that I'd rather save a vote for later
in case I come across a really exceptional node. Unfortunately,
most of the time I end up with a load of 'wasted' votes, that
I will never get to use by the end of the day.
So, my question is how do you manage your votes?
Do you, just like me, try to save up as many votes as
you can in anticipation of coming across that
exceptional node? Or are you always trying to use up
all of your votes to at least get a few extra XP for yourself?
