in thread Unlimited number of votes

It's really enough for me to be at current level, I don't need more (I placed my photo at home node and this is enough).

But could you please explain to me why posting about number of votes leads to massive downvoting?

Courage, the Cowardly Dog.
PS. Something fishy is going on there, or my name is Vadim Konovalov. And it's not.

    There have been several post in the past asking for more votes or an easier way to gain xp. Most of the time it is just people who make a game out of gaining xp, and want to become a saint faster then anyone else. These same people usually don't post much that is usefull to perlmonks and see voting as the only/main way to gain xp. So, even if you have good intentions about asking, it has become a taboo suject around here.

    Personally I didn't vote on your post, but many use it as a YAY or NAY especially on changes to the Monastery. I don't think these are people belittling you, just letting you know they think this is a bad idea. (Though voting/XP can be a touchy subject around here.)

    I would have to agree with them. If everyone had unlimited votes, the system would be pretty meaningless. Not that it's always an accurate reflection of the content of a node, but I think it would be even less so.
