in reply to on wasted votes ...

As a brand-spankin' new novice, is there a node that explains better the philosophy of voting? I've read and reread the Voting/Experience System node, and it doesn't say much. Also, I've heard of these 'radio buttons', but don't see them. I'm supposed to have 5 votes now, but I can't figure out how to use them. Maybe they'll arrive tomorrow?

PS I was trying to link to the V/XPS node above, but couldn't get it to go. How do I do that?

    Heya and welcome to the Monastery pepik_knize! About the 5 votes that you have - since you are Lvl 2, you will have them tomorrow... it works after 24hrs after you gain the level (I believe..). If I'm wrong.. feel free to correct me. :) To link to the Voting/Experience System - there are a couple of different ways to do that:
    • [Voting/Experience System] <LI[http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node=Voting%2FExperience%20System|Voting/Experience System]
    Also, for more information - check out turnstep's homenode (quite helpful). For all sorts of nodes on voting and how to vote and how other monks feel about voting - check out Super Search!

    There is an elegant node somewhere and it eludes my search efforts right now. However since reading it, it always pops into mind when I am about to cast a vote. It was something to the effect of "++ where you would say Amen". That's it. I use -- for rare instances when needing to (contribute to) correct(ing) something. Not for casual use.
