Why does Bright Journey use 5 points for an upvoted answer instead of 10?


1

If I recall correctly, the old Answers.OnStartups.com site (and all Stack Exchange sites) gave 5 points for an upvoted question and 10 points for an upvoted answer. The idea being that a good answer is worth quite a bit more than a good question. Why does Bright Journey put upvotes on questions at 5 instead of 10?

Agreed! The change will be live in tomorrow's release.

^5 for questions.
^10 for answers.

For all previous votes on the new Bright Journey site, the points will be settled as well (5 added to all answer up votes).

Update:

This is now live and all back votes since Bright Journey began were processed through the new points system.
