I'll ++ that. ;)

I do understand where you're going. But the fact that 'saint' just became more than three times harder to reach, vote inflation isn't such an issue (under the newly proposed system).

Besides, if you stop ++'ing my nodes how am I ever going to reach level vroom? (just kidding).

Let's comprimise in our little world of two opinions. Knock saints down to 30-35 votes, not 20. There really are a few of those days where I find a lot of good things to vote on. I hate it when, on one of those days, there's that one additional node that deserves a positive vote, and I'm out because I got really interested in some other discussion earlier and spent all my votes there. 40 is a lot, but dropping down to 20 seems a little extreme.

    Well, the thing Is I want people to view their votes as a miser views his money. Extremely conservatively. The only way I can conceive of influencing peoples behaviour in this regard is to reduce the number of votes they have. 20 is a lot, more than enough. But I guess since we would have 20 levels it would probably be easier to use 30 or maybe 32 votes so that at some levels people get more than 2 more votes. The other thing I think is that this change should in some way or another impact everyone. For instance my level and XP here mean the current proposals would leave me unchanged. I could see some arguing that that is unfair. At the very least take away some of my votes. :-)
