So I just reached my + vote quota and I must ask why is this still a thing?

 

I understand that we had this when we actually gave both positive and negative votes to each other and we had numbers displaying our current scores in our profiles, but now when our votes basically means nothing why do we still have a daily limitation?

I think the answer is in line of "programming is hard"...

 

And considering time taken to undo nerfs or buffs of assorted vehicles...this easy feature in forum should be fixed early 2023.. :/

Don't think so, I just went into your profile and gave you 5 stars, no idea what it does apart from perhaps granting you a better star rating which I guess is pointless.

Yeah that's what I suspect as well, they just left it there without a second thought.

Perfecty fits the way WG tries to fix things: Change something here and there but completely ignore everything else, even though it's directly linked.

I've been beating this drum for a while - wholeheartedly support the idea of removing the cap on 'positives'.

I must admit I'm not sure if I should be disappointed or glad that you didn't like my original post :mellow:

How can you reach your limit when everything that is posted on the forums the whole day is trash?

My guess: to make people think about making positive votes; causing them to visit the forums more often; removing much possibility of spamming "likes".

Well that's stretching it, but it's a possibility I guess, still since these likes don't do anything there would be little harm if one spammed them. I for example use mine as both a mean to show that I agree with what's been posted but also an acknowledgement that I've read a reply to something I posted but it don't require a reply from me.

I asked the same question on another WG forum a long time ago and the answer is that the forum software they bought (IP.Board), requires the admin to set the limit to a actual number ( i.e you can’t leave it blank) 

So now different WG forums have different limits, most of EU have 10, some NA have 20, others 50 or even 5.
