In answer to axelrowes reply to my reply, which I also see as an Idea so I'll put it here. I hope that it might shed some light.
I would think the sites nature to be very clear. As for my perceived place within the community, I'm afraid I don't quite understand, but will try to offer what information I can.
The way I see it, we are all equal here and this is a place where we can exchange material, discuss roleplaying, and generally interact with other people as happens on forums and sites. I don't give myself nor another a 'place' or 'rank' in the Citadel, with the exception of Strolen and the admins. The ranking system is just a way to see who contributes and how much they give.
I would think that my submission answers the reasons as to why I vote, and my criteria for such. However, I do not think that I can give a full explanation on why I vote, as the reasons for voting are numerous, as I'm sure we would all agree and each have our own reasons. Go to Comment
Temple of some malign being invites you warmly and offers help (curing,needed spell etc) for some minor sacrifice . Sacrifices must be everytime bigger to work - up to living inteligent creatures. Maybe you pay some other price,too...
