in thread Possible changes to Voting/XP

Especially given the 200 odd saints with a total vote power of around 8000 votes everyday XP and rep inflation is going to be more and more of a problem.
That assumes all saints use up all the votes every day. More often than not, I cast less than 5 votes a day.
And I vote for downvotes having 0 change of XP gain. If you want to be nasty then do it to make a point, not to get XP.
Why not extent it to if you vote, then do it to make a point, not to get XP. Otherwise, you are suggesting that it's ok to vote ++ to gain XP. Which is odd considering your concern of XP and rep inflation.

    Yeah me too. But my point is still valid, there are far more votes available in th system now, but without a corresponding increase in volume.

    Otherwise, you are suggesting that it's ok to vote ++ to gain XP.

    Well, actually I was thinking of the people who mass downvote or the like as was mentioned in the OP. But you're right: One should vote to make a point and not to make XP.
