It is very simple.
No one will ask you why you voted this way and not the other way. You will not be held accountable for your vote even if you may feel responsible for the quality and the nature of your vote. But still you will be motivated for the sake of voting. So vote for any option since it wont harm you at all. Voting is free and it does not cost you anything. Just click a question and pick an answer you think is the best and vote. No points are deducted for wrong votes. This is not a test. So vote. You will win 1 point for each vote. here is a nice hint: Vote for the first best answer you see. Dont mull over. Dont waste time weighing responses. You are not a goldsmith so it is not worthed. Try reading the first three answers more carefully cause most people will do the same and pick one of those as the best answer (this is a scientifically proven behaviorial pattern, interest wanes 99% after the first three standard deviations). This method will increase your chances of hitting a winning best answer making you additional bonus. You will get 4 extra points for luckily picking the winning best answer. No harm done. Vote as much as you can. And this is exactly the reason why a vote is awarded 1 point only since anyone can vote for such no cause. The 4 point bonus is not designed to buy votes but to buy quality so that luck element is discouraged. But if you vote for enough questions a day (max 100) you are likely to hit the winning best answers as well and make yourself roughly 200 points a day by just voting say in an hour. Just click away for votes.
Just pick any open question and answer it in no more than 5 words. You may comment or elaborate on your answer later. It will take max half a minute and this way you will answer again 100 questions and make yourself 500 points.
3. Repeat this for 30 days in a row and make yourself 21000 points and in three months time you can be in the top3 of the superstars.
See it takes no brainers… You dont have to make real sense as long as you are not way off what the question asks you can always make a case for yourself…
1. Vote 2. Answer …
That is different. We do not like you asking too many questions here. I personally have been insulted many times for asking too many questions. Just look at the general pattern. People here probably ask only a fraction of what they answer and vote. You can see many people with 0 questions here (and belive me they take pride in doing so or being that way as if asking is a lowly act). But you will hardly see any one here with 0 answers unless they just came in and asked one querstion and got bored and got out.
We just want you to ask enough questions that will not hurt our self esteem and that will make the wheels turn…
That is probably why we have no incentives offered here for asking?
It is true. No points are awarded for asking. Thank God that we are not deducting any points for asking too many questions a day here. I do not know of if we limit the number of questions you may ask in any given day or not but I know that we will warn you and kick you out if you atart asking too many questions in a row blocking all our questions bulletin boards. I know this cause onece I have received a citation for asking too many questions here.
I was asking too many questions on that particular day, say some 10-15 questions in a period of half an hour. This citation page came up saying something like this (I can not repeat it verbatim cause I did not copy it then)
"you should take a break now and come back later since you are asking too many questions"
I am serious, I hit that page one day…
Now can I make money like this in real life by answering and voting and never asking? Apparently many of us make money this way too uh? I see smiling faces out there.
We make asking unworthy or thus really hard.
An example: InfiniteDecay is a very smart user and very wise too. See what InfiniteDecay did? Asked 0 questions and scored 11260 points with 780 Answers and 1046 votes hitting 255 Best answers.
