Lets face it - this forum is a silent place: There not many questions and equally many answers. And thats ok. Hey, it is a forum about a window manager, after all.
Most of the users (98.5%) have not enough karma (<10) to upvote someting. And since there few upvotes it gets even harder to get the carma to do so. As a result, nothing is voted at all and good answers do not raise to the top.
I suggest to lower the amount of karma that is needed to vote threads and answers. It is 10 at the moment. Let it be 2. It motivates people to discuss more. And if we get a troll problem we can undo it easily.
And lower the bar to post links, too. Its ridiculous, why is the bar for linking 30 points? Not even 0.5% of the users have that.
