Yes that was a new option in this version which I forgot to change. I have been making a few other changes to the points system, the main ones that will have made a difference are:
- Getting a best answer is now +20 instead of +30 points. 30 was a bit too high really when you only get 10 from a vote.
- You get +1 for voting up, however you also get -1 for voting down. Hopefully this will stop people voting down loads of things for no reason.
But you should still vote down if answers are completely wrong or for spam/junk questions. (Also, if the questions/answers are later deleted because they are bad, then you should get that lost point back.)
EDIT: After a bit more thought I decided to keep the +1 for voting something up. It's a very minor bonus compared to the other scoring. People's scores are in the hundreds or thousands so a few points here and there doesn't matter.
I don't want to remove the -1 for down voting because it will not discourage the people down voting just for the hell of it. But again it's a small hit so hopefully everyone will still down vote when necessary.
