Do you upvote your posts?

In Sololearn, we can upvote or downvote our posts. Do you feel that it's a good practice to upvote your own post? I am one upvote short of a badge and I just stumbled across this idea. Note that I am not craving for badges or XP as I already have decent amounts of them. I just want to know what you think of it.

You can upvote your own post, but it won't count as an upvote.


Generally, I upvote any answer that is right and downvote any answer that is definitely wrong. I believe most of my answers are fairly correct so I do upvote them so that they move up and other users can see them. Like visph, I try to arrange the answers by using upvotes (and sometimes downvotes).


Up/down voting system is perverted by missusing it... I try to don't care about that, and even do as I think this must be doing to good use: so, sometimes I upvote my posts, or downvote them, just for putting them a little more at their place ( sometimes posts gets upvotes for nothing, and others don't even if they are good informatives posts ). But I think also this will change if I don't leave this app, which have at same times some useful sides, even the Q&A section with all its defaults/limitations ^^... Nobody's perfect :P


@Caleb Jore : Thanks for answering! @Didi Danaila : Thanks for confirming!


You are right @Manas. It's like high five-ing ourself. But, as @visph and @Jafca said, we can use that feature to arrange answers. Anyways, I am leaving that badge for now and am not upvoting my post.


Caleb Jore right answer


It feels a little like high-fiving yourself


I used to upvote all my own posts and codes when I was silver... When I became gold, I stopped it, it was like praising myself which is wrong...
