(From the comments) my experience of late around the authors main point, to vote more is relevant to the discussion. While still relatively new (almost a year) user, I have been offput from answering some questions. Whilst I don't expect $$1/3$$ of my $$(136)$$ answers to be bad (via downvoting/commenting), they are neither acknowledged as good (via upvoting). This makes it difficult to guage what is an appropriate level of quality within an answer, as well a being unsure if it is even being read. Both of these reasons limit my activity on the site. I do not know how these reqsonsreasons transfer to other users or particularly new users. Having read "Is serverfault doomed?"
