This new version of GirlsAskGuys.com has been up for a few weeks now.
One trend I have noticed,
is that answers aren't voted upon (upvote/downvote arrows ) NEARLY as much as they were in the previous version of GaG.
I find this an interesting phenomenon.
Why do you think this is?

(1) The buttons are now much lighter in color so fewer people take notice of them on a regular basis.
(2) The buttons now look like they have the purpose of hiding and showing the replies to an Opinion, instead of looking like rating buttons. I made this mistake when the website was last updated and downvoted a moderator making the announcement. Oops.
(3) Sometimes you feel neutral about a comment and think the downvotes on it are undeserved so you upvote to bring the vote tally closer to neutrality, or you feel that way about upvotes and therefore downvote, but now you cannot know whether you would be justified in upvoting and downvoting this way.
There may be other reasons, but these seem like the most obvious ones. The web designer (s) here would do well to change the voting buttons to be thumbs-up and thumbs-down icons with much greater contrast than the current buttons.1
