I'm still a newbie on the askubuntu site, and what I experienced is that you need a reputation of 15 to upvote. I don't understand this.
Say you see a question that you would like to see answered or a problem you have too, and you would like to upvote but you can't. There are 2 alternatives to upvoting:
- give a "me too" answer -> undesirable
- ask the same question, AND get 15 reputation for asking it (only if discovered not a duplicate?) -> undesirable
I understand that askubuntu wants quality questions and answers, but I don't see how this particular decision helps to achieve this. I would like to see this dropped, or can someone explain?
