What is the size of our user base? More specifically what is the size of the active community?

If there are only a few active community members then a low number of votes will not help because the number of open items is greater than the number of active participants.

I don't know.

Bump to five, I guess. We need a way to inform bugzilla account members that they only receive five votes total --- forever.

My goal is to use voting as a bubble method to expose certain bug reports. A challenge I see with any limit is as time moves on and bugs are resolved, users are not able to vote for new bugs reports. Does changing the bug report status to resolved remove the votes and allow people to use that newly freed vote for another bug report? Is this process dynamic?
