I guess I should be aware already but... what about this mysterious "k" next to my name on my PH profile? I understand it's related to some sort of points system? is it some kind of challenge? Is there a prize? I love prizes! A prize, a prize!

And for the philosophers among us: is it ok to upvote your own question?

@paulodef Haha. Love the question. I am not a philosopher but I am gonna share what have seen so far. In the product I've been creating (with my team) there's a phase where you can either upvote your own answer or decide to upvote another answer from someone else. So, the result so far has been: more people tend to upvote other answers rather than their owns! Again, I am not a philosopher so won't be able to give more insights about that haha. But would love to read a comment here from a philosopher!
