These last few days (let's say maybe a week or two) I feel like every single new post (questions and answers) gets an upvote almost automatically only a few minutes after they are posted and no matter the quality of the post.
I don't know how to quantify that other than with my feeling and the fact that all of the new questions have at least one upvote.
Maybe it is due to the growing number of users on the site and it is nothing odd but what makes me ask this question is that
- Even some "low quality questions" are upvoted
- The upvotes seems pretty quick: From what I've observed, the upvote comes less than 5 minutes after the post is published.
I ask that because even if upvotes are pretty harmless, they still are a way for users to easily find good questions and upvoting all the questions would defeat this purpose.
I am aware that this question might seem a little bit weird and is mostly based on feelings but I really feel like something has changed recently so wanted to know if other users had noticed this too or if I'm just victim of a biased observation.
