You actually can't. It appears to let you but refresh the page and it's gone.

I see it as the same as liking your own status on facebook...you can do it but it makes you look lame in my opinion ;p

Seems silly to me.I don't place much credence on upvotes or downvotes in any case.I just say what I want to say.Mind you the upvoate system does allow me to tell what other people thing is good content and I think that has value.

It is also an effective way to get rid of trolls as they just get downvoted to hell.

I don't upvote myself, and I like starting with 0 better than starting with +1; it doesn't add a bias to people just upvoting or downvoting because of your initial score. It always looked to me like at least one person agreed with whatever anybody said, and I didn't like that so much. So in my opinion it's better to not upvote yourself.

Also, Voat is more about discussion (or is intended to be, anyway) and less about karma. Seeing people start with a score of 0 makes me want to actually join the discussion instead of just blindly upvoting the already upvoted people.

Edit: After reading Ziusudra's response, I see that I'm newer here than I thought lol.
