I hate the idea of votes. Many good ideas and urgent requests for help won't have votes. Does it mean no one is going to attend them? Voting is the worst idea that I see only on Microsoft Support web sites. No other company uses votes in this negative, limiting way to avoid work for themselves. People visit forums when they have a problem. How can you expect questions to collect votes when people do not visit the forums for voting purposes. They hardly have time to browse all questions and vote on them?
