Very good, would be awesome if the upvotes and downvotes stayed for the day though (when you use those buttons, nothing changes at MR's end).

Glad to see that MR knows what a joke the voting system is.

Actually the voting system in this prank has to do with the member. Not the post. ;)

When did we get this? Or is this part of the April Fool's pranking?

EDIT: And the votes go away after you refresh the page? What is this nonsense! :p

this. although i have to say that some of the past April fool's pranks were much better. i was especially fond of the Pirate themed one.

I'm quitting. This voting stuff is over the top. Have a good one folks. I'm going to visit other forums from now on.

Only a couple of hours left before the forums return to normal.

I don't think the more subtle voting effects have been noticed yet. Bonus points to anyone who spots them.

Voting up makes icons bigger and down voting makes the icons smaller.

Same thing with up/down. Up is up and down is down.

Clicking the avatar vote buttons also moves and resizes the avatar, status button, vote buttons, edit, quote, multi-quote buttons. It also changes the year of the Join Date and resizes the MacRumors header at the top of the page.

Adds "o" to Thread Tools.
... or removes them.

Even funnier because the mod usually has fake up/downvote buttons in his avatar and they're missing now XD
