Especially during the beta, I've been reading nearly all questions and answers, and I'm upvoting and downvoting a lot -- for two reasons: First, I hope to raise the content quality by making it clearer to newcomwers what a good and a bad *) post looks like, and second I want to motivate the users to continue contributing. The rep system works as a motivator because people like the "game" component; everybody wants to earn more rep, but only good posts make that happen -- and only if others actually vote!
For the past three days, I've used up my 30 daily votes within an hour. I want to have more votes to spend. I think it's safe to say that the system won't be changed, because the SE sites prove that it works well. But I want to know: Am I alone in this?
*) "good and bad" in the spirit of SE: "this is useful" and "this is not useful".
