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.


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. – Eliah Kagan Jun 14 '12 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." – ish Jun 14 '12 at 23:56
  • I have only known this after reading the question. I think I have good voting pattern. (144/295) are on questions. (shameless self-promotion) – Anwar Jun 21 '12 at 1:54
  • @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. – jokerdino Jun 21 '12 at 5:03
