So I am new to this site and I hope this is a proper forum to ask this - if not please do not punish me too harshly. I must seem like a narcissist to inquire - but I posted a question that has +6 up-votes for two answers but no one thinks the question itself is worth an up-vote. I probably won't do it even if I can but it is a bit weird that there can be very good answers to a blah question.
Go ahead, try it. The site will tell you that's not possible.
(I do think that there may occasionally be very good answers to a blah question; some answerers manage to cook soup from a stone).
The system will not let you cast a vote for a post created by the same user.
And though we know that most people can be counted on to understand this let me put the policy on sock-puppetry down, just for the record:
- Using sock-puppet accounts to vote for yourself is forbidden, and moderators have access to tool for detecting such behavior which can lead to suspension from the site and deletion of secondary account(s).
