> As long as you don't write total nonsense, it doesn't matter what quality your answers are, because people will upvote moderately good answers the same as very goos answers. There are no double or triple upvotes.

Exactly this lack of double or triple upvotes makes the system favoring mediocre posts.

In the first 4 years here I restricted my votes to nodes I considered excellent. The system punished me b/c I didn't exhaust my quota.

But today even after I started to upvote even moderately good answers I mostly finish the day with 20 votes left. I know that others (e.g. choroba) have similar problems.

I would love to have the opportunity to give 5 upvotes for excellent elaborated posts even if I lost XP in exchange.

    Hm. I seriously doubt there has been a single day when I have exhausted all votes in 7/8/9/10 years. Most days I vote 3 or 4 times at most. (I can't prove that; but a God could verify it if they chose to.)

    I guess I've been doing it wrong all these years.

    There must have been simply a tone of good posts 4 years ago, going back to the beginning of PM. As I indicate in my guide on leveling look for places worthy of being voted. Today I'm convinced you could spend a lifetime reading PM and still not have read everything.

      Come on, at the time of writing your comment, there were only 1118829 nodes on PM, including yours. That is manageable. Come on, show more effort!

        Have I read all the posts on PM? I seriously doubt it. If I had, would I remember them all? I seriously doubt it. Is there a point to this ramble? I seriously ... don't remember :(
