I disagree with the second suggestion. The value of certain nodes doesn't erode over time. People who are discovering these nodes for the first time or who are using them for the first time should be able to vote on them. This is especially true because more people are voting now, so older nodes look undervalued in comparision to new ones.

Haven't you ever run across a topic you knew nothing about, and so ignored, only to find yourself later dealing with it, going back to the related nodes, and finding a great deal of useful information? Haven't you ever searched for information on a topic, only to find just what you needed in a node that was created before you joined?

I want the ability to vote for a good node regardless of its age. I don't know how many people do go through the archives looking for interesting old nodes, but I'm one person who does.
