It's been noted by some other Android users that people on this site really don't vote often. Voting increases engagement and helps us sort out good/bad content. Why aren't people voting and how can we encourage additional voting?

Full disclosure: I haven't used this site very much and I thus haven't voted or done much yet but I'm very active else where. Perhaps too many users are drive-bys, but I'd like to see that changed.

  • Additionally other things like moderating (reviewing, editing posts) is currently not enough on this site. Mar 7, 2018 at 18:58
  • Ha so this was an issues in 2012 too?! I guess an Android site will always have this issue.

From what I've seen this site gets more than its fair share of drive-by readers. So, without even a modicum of reputation points they're not doing any voting.

I've not been as active as I would like (for other reasons) but when I am active I try to use up my votes every day. There's often not enough things to vote on, though.
