Governance > $IDLE staking > Gauges > FAQs
Gauge weights account how much $IDLE will be received by a liquidity gauge.
Only users who stake/lock their $IDLE (i.e. stkIDLE holders) have access to gauge weight voting.
Gauges’ weights change once a week, every Thursday (~12:00 AM UTC).
Users can change their weights once every 10 days. The 10-days window is counted since their last voting preference submission.
Users don't have to vote again every week except if they want to change their vote distribution.
Your voting power applies to all gauges but may produce different boosts based on how much liquidity you are providing and how much total liquidity the PYT pool has.
