So reading through the forums last night/today, I found out there was a limit on how many times you can press the little +1 button on the bottom of posts. I understand why there's a limit on negs, so some troll doesn't go around negging everyone at random, but why is there a limit on how many times you can +1 posts? Has anyone else ever experienced this?

Oh, yes. I have hit my limit by 1 in the morning, if you can believe it.

I think it's to stop the opposite of trolling. Possibly to keep people from artificially driving up the reputations of their friends, although that was the default case when we had no negs.

This is just my guess. It could be something computer-y.

I use a lot more + than -. Sometimes I have to make a mental note to go back and give someone a + because I'm out.

Yeah, I've pointed this out before too. I assume it has to do with the way the forum is set up. Like if you set a limit of 3 votes, it is the same for both negative and positive. So if you upped it to 7 or something, then you'd be letting people post 7 negs a day as well. I could be totally wrong though...
