Are upvotes and downvotes actually doing something?

Do they influence the MHO or something like this? 😂

Most Helpful Girl

  • I *think* the number of upvotes affects the system selected MHO, but I'm really not 100% sure on that one.

    "Why did the system choose a Most Helpful Opinion (MHO) for me?

    If, after 30 days, you haven't chosen and selected a Most Helpful opinion, one will automatically be chosen for you.
    Neither the Question Asker nor the user awarded Most Helpful will get Xper points for these automatic selections.
    It's chosen based on engagement: votes, comments, length, time, xper level, gender, among other criteria. As long as you're giving helpful opinions, we'll find them!"

  • No, up votes and down votes don't do anything. They are simply a way of expressing agreement or disagreement with a person's opinion.

  • They don't affect anything lol. It should affect your experience though, it'll force people (who care) to give better/smarter opinions.

  • Sometimes I pick as a mho the one with the most upvotes but I usually pick the opinion I liked better.
