Where are all the upvotes? https://ift.tt/2p9Rm4Q

This is not a very important question (at least I don't think it is), but I've always been curious about it. I visit this sub daily, and, granted, there is a huge amount of inane BEST-type questions, which would presumably get downvoted anyways, but why is it that there are so many posts, yet so few with more than like fifteen upvotes?

If I browse it right now sorting by top of the week, I get this post with 813 upvotes, as of now. That's actually more than average. A very successful post would probably go only as far as about 250-300 upvotes.

Let's compare it to /r/VapePorn. It has, at 24,256 subscribers, only a fraction of the amount of subs that ecr has, and yet the front page has several handchecks with 20+ upvotes. Compared to /r/Vaping, which has about half as many subscribers, we also see the same pattern. Lots of handchecks, most frontpage posts somewhere over 15-20 upvotes. The prettier handchecks get over 100+ upvotes.

Yet, if I go to the frontpage of this subreddit, all I see is a barren waste of questions with at most five upvotes, some links about advocacy and scientific studies that get about fifty upvotes if they're really relevant, and currently we have the whole mod clusterfuck that is getting a lot of attention.

What the hell is going on? I sub to /r/FountainPens, my other expensive hobby, and the frontpage is super friendly, and it looks healthy, as opposed to this sub. It looks like a hobby that people actually enjoy. I enjoy vaping and do it as a means to avoid smoking, as well as a hobby. I suppose most of you do, too, so where the hell's the fun one would expect?

Is it because we don't encourage fun, interesting content?

Is it because we're sick and tired of all the gear reviews?

Is it because we're all cranky and jaded and downvote anyone asking about mesh coils for some whatever tank we don't use?

Is it because of all the BEST questions?

Is it because of vote manipulation?

Also, bonus question: why the fuck is there so much fucking drama in the vaping community? All the youtuber beefing, the name calling in forums, the overall shitty, toxic attitude that I keep seeing in every group that discusses vaping?

What do you guys think? I remember having more fun around here when I started vaping three years ago.
