Am I just thick? I have been active on this site for three weeks and don't know about voting. I see up and down arrows and have poured over the rules and guidelines without gaining information. I have never voted for any opinions I have received because I don't know about it. I suspect my opinions are being down voted and I can't get upset because I can't interpret it. Why do I feel so in the dark about it? Where can I learn about it?

Upvoting and downvoting opinions is completely optional and doesn't earn anyone any Xper points, nor does it make users lose any.
The left arrow pointing up is for when you like the opinion, or appreciate it, or agree with it.
The right arrow pointing down is for when you dislike the opinion, or disagree with it.
You can only see the other votes AFTER you've voted yourself.
You can vote on ANY opinion other than your own, on your own questions, or on others' questions.
You can see how many upvotes and downvotes your opinion received by either revisiting the question page and looking at your opinion, or by going to the Opinions tab of your profile... on the right, it will show you all votes for that opinion.
The votes are separated by gender; pink number representing girl votes, blue number representing guy votes.
I hope that helps ^_^3
