I think voting without comments is not meaningful. Can't it be possible that Team HubPages facilitates the commentators for voting only after they have put in their comments. When the commentator submits contents, the voting capsule be made visible with the option if the commentator wanted to vote - say Yes or No, if yes voting window/capsule be visible. It will improve the interface at HubPages.
Voting is voting, comments are comments. I see no problem with just doing one and not the other.
Perhaps if you did not respond to comments so negatively (critiquing the user's profile, telling them they misunderstood your hub etc) you would get more of them.
Fairly often I want to support HP writers but just have nothing to say. I like being able to at least vote their post up. It isn't the same as a comment but it gives them something.

How does one move up as a commentator?I seem to have been a level 5 commentator for ages. I do comment regularly but do not move up. Any tips from higher graded commentators?

What means more to you - social network sharing, HP accolades, comments, or voting up?When you write a hub, which response affects you the most: comments, social network sharing, HP accolades, or voting up?

My hub was one of the nominated hubs for this weeks competition. I was e-mailed a link to a forum but either there is no interest in the competition (judging by the number of votes so far this is possible) or I have a link to a previous forum. There are no posts relating to this week's competition...
