I would not want to punish someone with a vote that is definitely too low, nor would I want to reward someone with a vote that was too high for what the photo actually is.

Interesting idea. But I would barely not be able to contribute photos. My points are 591, subtracted by 100 which equals 491. This would equal 2,455. Add 1,000 to that value which equals 3,455. I currently have 4,013. Even if the calculation was a little nicer by having 591*5=2,955 and then +1,000 it would equal 3,955. I'd still be 58 photos above the budget. I figure I post good pictures. It would be a shame not to be able to post them.

It was already tried. There was way too much revenge voting, fake voting, etc. It was way too much work for the elves. People can't behave themselves.

I put up a few pages on rocky Arizona desert peaks and am lucky to get 10 votes (thank you to those who do), while someone puts up a snowy, pointy Alps summit and boom, 30 votes.

I don't stay awake nights worrying about the difference between a 9 and a 10, or 4 stars vs 5. It only interests me from the "voting theory", both mathematical and psychological, aspects.
Fact: any voting system imposed relies on subjective criteria, unique to everyone individually. So saying 4 stars should be "Very Good" or 4 stars should be "Good" is cutting hairs. Four or five stars is what you feel it should be at that moment. That being said, the fewer choices (5 stars vs 10 pts) the better, in my opinion.
Fact: any voting system is prone to some abuse. Truthfully, how many people deal with "fake" or "revenge" voting on a regular basis? I say the percentage is small enough to be negligible. Most people here vote generally in the same broadest terms so that it works, although never as finely as we may like.
I put up a few pages on rocky Arizona desert peaks and am lucky to get 10 votes (thank you to those who do), while someone puts up a snowy, pointy Alps summit and boom, 30 votes. So yes, mountaineering favors the snowier, pointier "traditional" peaks. It's just a fact, and I am fine with that. I like good useful information and appreciate it when I see it from someone else who took the time to include it for a peak, and I try to do the same in return. I really don't care if I get x or 2x or x^2 or even x^2 + 2x votes, as long as the info is solid.
So I'll go with whatever system is imposed. If someone has a beef with me and my pages or photos and votes me 1 point or 1 star, so be it. I really don't care, and I just move on to the next task.
