I just adjusted the algorithm and now your ability to throw weight around is a function of how long you have been a member, how many posts you have, and the time of your last post.
The ability to throw weight around doesn't depend much on whether someone joined 6 months or 9 months ago. However, there is a huge difference between someone who joined yesterday and someone who joined 3 months ago.
The ability to throw weight around doesn't depend much on whether someone has 100 posts or 200 posts. However, there is a huge difference between someone who has 1 post and someone who has 100 posts.
The ability to throw weight around doesn't matter much if your last post was a week or a month ago. However, if you haven't posted in six months your votes will be reduced until you post again. Basically the goal is for active members to have the most voting influence.
Note: Getting votes from people who can throw weight around not only increases your weight but it also increases your ability to throw weight around.
