I may be asking a stupid question, but how do I vote? In the mail I am asked to vote positively for the answer given to my questions. I have looked in the FAQ but I don't see any instruction on how to vote. Am I missing something here or am I not allowed to vote yet because I have not done any work yet? No problem, but it should then be made clear.

Sorry, I did not realize what the "thumbs" where used for. I am used to wikipedia where voting is a much more elaborate and controlled proces.

"Votes are not anonymous" where can I see who voted for what?

You can see who voted for what by looking at the karma history on a users page, for example:
