I share this thought.

I wish this would be different.

I think the general idea that people express their support through a
vote is good. I often install a package just to test it and to realize
that I don't need it. Don't see why this should increase the popularity,
one could argue it should decrease...

What about votes that are valid two months + a monthly voting cronjob
(the time spans are just exemplary)?

Further I'd like to see a list of all packages I voted for, so far I was
not able to get this - might be my lack of knowledge.
