About 3 months ago, we rolled out a new voting system for comments. There have now been over 4300 votes.
Across the 4 categories offered, voting break down was:
- 2185 agree
- 966 funny
- 702 informative
- 463 disagree
So overall, you are a bretty agreeable, funny bunch. Who knew....
Top 9 vote getters ranged from 108 to 212 votes.
601 members got at least 1 vote. Mean was 7.2, median was 2.
I think we should add a 'not helpful' / 'off topic' option as a way to flag comments that do not add to the conversation.
I also think we should promote voting more to remind members about voting.
Paying / Rewarding Top Vote Getters
One thing I am considering is paying members who get a higher number of votes. X dollars for Y votes, etc. I think this would be a nice way to reward / recognize people who share valuable insights. What do you think?
Note: We have not analyzed who got what votes, how the vote number compared to comments entered, etc. but we will in the near future.
