This is my first post to the CS50 Meta group. I don't think this is a duplicate question/comment:

Would it be useful to encourage people (including moderators & alumni) to upvote good questions? I see that a lot of questions have zero votes, including those with upvoted & checked answers.

In my time on other Stack Exchange forums, I see people regularly get props for their questions. I assume that this encourages more good questions. Encouraging current students to upvote good questions might also help them be good community members in other forums in their post-CS50 life.

Plus, getting points feels good!

    I noticed the same thing and wondered if there was either a lack of knowledge about how a "typical" SE site works, or a general stigmata against upvoting... I personally like to know if my question was helpful or considered well thought out, and an upvote also helps you to know good examples to look at for how to pose your own questions.

  • I totally agree. From now, I will upvote any good question. I will not downvote bad ones, unless very bad.
