I actually changed my approach to up and down voting. On Reddit I down voted because I disagreed or if a post didn't give me the enjoyment I was looking for in a sub.

Here I even upvote stuff I'm not agreeing with just because I enjoy the proper discussions. Downvoats are reserved for jackasses and racists.

I try to follow a rule of, if something makes me reply, the whole comment chain above me and the post must have upvoats, especially if I disagree. It added to the conversation enough for me to want to jump in.

I'll still downvoat posts in the wrong sub and comments that are nothing more than insults.

That was the way downvotes on reddit were meant to work but so few read the rules/redditquette. If you wanted to find an interesting counterpoint it was often at the bottom (with the racism and idiots). I hope voat can avoid the same thing.
