    Currently, there does not appear to be a limit on the number of promotions or demotions a user can give to Ideas.  When the number of votes is unlimited, it reduces the value of votes.  Furthermore, there is no incentive for people to vote against Ideas because they can go vote for 50 or 100 Ideas.  I believe capping the number of promotions and demotions over a given time frame will increase the value of a promotion and provide incentive for people to use demotions.

    I don't have any strong suggestions for the number of promotions or demotions nor the timeframe.  Maybe the timeframe could be quarterly and everyone gets 5 or 10 promotions and demotions for each quarter.
