This is very gradual: something like 10% over 6 months. If a user is very committed, they can "renew" their vote every few weeks by uncommitting and recommitting.
Be sure to "renew" your commitment every few months!
For example, my "renewal" brought our commitment score down to 18%, and then up to 20%!
