If I know right i can use maximum 30 votes in day. How can i get Vox Populi badge when it needs 40 votes:

Vox Populi Used the maximum 40 votes in a day.

1 Answer 1


This is covered by this MetaStackoverflow Q&A

... plagarising unashamedly....

This is totally by design...

If 1 in 3 of your votes are on questions, you will get 40 votes.

If you vote on less questions than that you will get less (lowest is 30)

... and Jeff Atwood has a great blog - its well worth a read.

So how do we encourage people to remember the questions when voting? Perhaps we should institute a new policy: every time you forget to vote a great question up, or a bad question down — a kitten gets it!

... but he is only kidding... honest!

    Voting on questions rocks! My advice to anyone who so far votes just on answers: Try voting on questions, and you won't be disappointed. And remember that, much of the time (though there are exceptions), a good answer happened because there was a good question to answer. By voting up the good question, you ensure that the good answer will be seen (and voted on) by even more people. Commented Jun 14, 2012 at 16:46
  • My loose "policy" when upvoting an answer is to also seriously consider upvoting the question unless it's somewhat localized (e.g. why does make fail when I try to compile blah package from source?). A lot of flaggable questions should also, in @jokerdino's words, be "downvoted ruthlessly."

  • I have only known this after reading the question. I think I have good voting pattern. (144/295) are on questions. (shameless self-promotion)

  • @izx FYI, I didn't get pinged for that comment. And, I requested that those questions be downvoted "mercilessly" :P. I received quite a bit of flak during that time. I generally try to upvote as many questions and answers as possible. These days, I only downvote if it is blatant spam or crap post.
