in reply to Voting system future feature

I've been thinking of this exact same thing since coming back from not spending any votes over the period of this weekend. I think this would be a really good idea, and it could be done like a lot of places do vacations. Basically, you can accrue over a percentage of your daily votes, and if you don't use them over a certain period of time, they start dropping off. An easier way of implementing this would be capping the votes at a certain percentage; say 200% over your example. This would seemingly make it much easier on the database backend and our good man vroom as well. Oddly, after spending ~2-3 hours in Super Search searching for anything with vote in the text, I've not seen this idea suggested before. I think it's about time =]
