Vote Changing

When you select a star rating on a thread, it doesn't let you change it, it says

"According to our records you have already voted on this thread. Changing votes is not allowed."

I think vote changing should be enabled, the quality of a thread can change throughout discussion. And a thread that seemed bad at first can turn out to be really intriguing.

I agree. Also, the "thumb rules" have gotten too strict.... can't change your vote, can't thumbs down, etc.,.

I voted this thread a 5 star, but it didn't change the original 3 star rating. Not sure how many votes have done, but the average didn't change.

You didn't get the window that says you can't change your vote?

This is about the star ratings of a thread as a whole.

I think he was thinking about the up vote which can be changed.

I meant the up vote thing. Someone said they couldn't change that.

No, thanks. The whining regarding iOS 7 and the new Mac Pro is already enough negativity.

I don't want to get banned for creating a new thread about this, but has anyone come to you or any other MOD about not being able to upvote? Every time I upvote a post, I come back and the number no longer reflects it.

Even if I just refresh the page or leave the page and navigate back to it (not using the back button) the vote doesn't stick.

I just gave you an 'upvote'. Does it appear for you?

Edit* I also just closed my browser and came back to this thread and it still appears to be there.

No, no one has that I'm aware of. I think this is an issue for Arn to look at. We'll let him know for you.

It does, let me upvote you, write this post, post it, then see what happens.

Okay, maybe I was a bit hasty. it seems it sticks but it doesn't change the highlight like it used to. I can upvote you again and get the different highlight and the number changes to +2, but of course goes away when I refresh.

Maybe it's a Chrome thing.

Thanks, I also submitted to the 'Contact Us.'

EDIT: May only be a browser issue.

Unless someone else has upvoted my post, then it does appear to be working

No, that was me. But I still don't get the highlight in Safari or Chrome.

That's not too much of an issue though, just thought that it was.

The highlight was very useful in seeing what I voted on though.

You've submitted a Contact Us, so hopefully the powers at be will look at this and try to fix the 'highlight' issue

That up vote shows me. Maybe it is a browser thing, I dunno.

That's odd. That same post with the up vote I took a snap shot of on my Mac, also, in fact, shows up on my iPad. I wonder why its not for you. Weird.

And now none are showing on my iMac either. I think something is up.

Yes, but now it's just about the highlight. I see the increase in the number of votes, but I don't see a highlight showing that I've actually voted.
