Maybe I didn't read the voting criteria well enough when I first joined. I've voted on a few things but was using subjective criteria along the lines of 10/10 for a page that has great photos, detailed info, and articulate writing. I would vote 9/10 for good photos, good info, good writing, 8/10 for okay photos, good info, okay writing, etc.... All pretty subjective on a personal basis. In reading this thread it makes me wonder if I didn't cause some pages to have adverse standings because I voted 8 or 9/10, which I think is still "good" or "above average" in my mind. Maybe a vote of 8 or 9 does not convey that it's a good submission????
Don't sweat it--you're not yet at the level where your votes make any real difference. But if anyone with vote power of 10 or more gives a page a score of 9 or less, the effect on the page ranking is negative and is very strong. This is completely contrary to what the "i" button indicates.
