If you go there and search for an idea, you will find multiple posts for the same idea (which means the votes are not totaled there).
If you see this, please e-mail me with a link to both of them and I'll consolidate them.
Also, if something is implemented by Fizzer (I saw that for open tournaments), there should be a way for him to give all the votes for that feature back to the users so they can vote on something else they would like to see.
This is, in fact, exactly how it works.
I think users should get a pool of votes periodically, so they don't have to take away a vote from another good idea to support a new good idea.
The problem is that I can only work on one thing at a time, so voting on too many items at once it just dillutes my view into what you really want. Instead, vote on the 2-3 things you want the most. If you change your mind, move your votes.
Not to mention there are just stupid ideas on there that certainly do not deserve to be above good ones with lower votes.
Different people have different opinions. The site isn't broken just because people disagree with your priorities.
In general the site has been somewhat stagnant since I started working on iOS/Android clients, which are very large work items (and they've taken a lot longer than I anticipated.) Things should start moving more quickly once they're done.
