Can you vote for yourself (or the opponent, if you're weird) in a debate?

I wasn't sure what preposition to use in the topic title.

In v2 it was accepted as proper conduct to vote for yourself, but in my opinion is that it should not be acceptable in v3. The new voting system makes it so that it is no longer a vague "vote" but a specific survey of who you thought had more convincing arguments, grammar, conduct, etc.

I think it is okay, provided you (1) leave an explanation for the way you voted in the comments section of your debate, and (2) vote with an unbiased mindset.

(2) is impossible.

Every single person holds the preconception that they should win.
If I didn't answer what you said, try bolding the important part.

I appreciated it. I wondered about the etiquette. On an old site I used, each vote was 1 point so it was pretty much a given you would self-vote. It was often an effective bump as well.

Here, no one does, so I haven't.
