I know the upvotes on g@g don't mean much, but I was curious to see what people said.
My dumb jokes and troll slapdowns tend to get upvoted a lot more than when I'm trying to be helpful and constructive. Is it the same for everyone? Do people just respond more to humor and conflict than people being helpful? Or maybe it's just me and my 'helpful' opinions just aren't as helpful as I like to think they are!
And what colour are most of your upvotes? I seem to get waay more pinks than blues, maybe guys are just stingier with them
It was a constructive opinion trying to help the asker.

It was a jokey opinion but still intended to be helpful.
I don't keep track of my upvotes but I remember one answer were the two sides were shouting at each other and I said something about if both sides compromised a little we might have something to discuss - Got 4 or 5 comments back supporting my comment.
The most upvotes I ever had was 28 for posting a picture of myself on one of those 'selfie questions' but I don't think that really counts. Other than that, I think I had about 13-14 upvotes maybe? For crushing some narrow-minded guy.
