When i first posted on this site without registering, a number was assigned next to my name. After i registered, the number kept increasing (from 01, 11, 21 and now 31) usually each time i login to my account.

What does the number imply?

How does it increase/ how can i make it increase?

Why is the number no more increasing each time I login?

Please i need to know. se/ how can i make it increase?

Why is the number no more increasing each time I login?

The number refers to the number of votes you have received from other users of IQ for your questions/answers.

What is all this voting about?

Any registered user who gains 15 reputation points is entitled to start voting on the site.

You can think of voting as a kind of money. You give votes to people who you think have asked good questions or written good answers - it is a reward for taking part in the site. The more votes that someone receives, the higher their reputation score becomes. You place an "up vote" by clicking the small up-arrow next to each question or answer.

You can vote up to 30 times daily and we encourage you to use your votes.

Inward Quest is run by you and, through the voting system, you can decide which questions and answers become more visible on the site, and which users gain more powers to influence how the site runs.

How you use your votes is private to you, and only you. Other users cannot see who you have been voting for.

You can also "down vote" questions or answers if you think they are unhelpful or simply wrong (in your view) - however, it will cost you one of your own reputation points to do so, and the other person will lose two reputation points.

Please note that, although other users cannot see any of your votes, the site moderators do monitor voting patterns to prevent fraudulent voting, so please don't try voting for your duplicate accounts or your friends - we will notice! Honest voting helps to make the site more valuable to others.

There is more information about how Inward Quest works in the Inward Quest User Guide

I should point out that it appears that with the new upcoming IQ software (the one that currently runs IQ Meta), that voting is no longer anonymous.

Tanx Simon. That really treated my question rightly.
