How do the upvote / downvote buttons work on CathInfo?

  • Title pretty much says it. They were enabled some time ago, but now they're disabled for me. However other people seem to be able to still vote. What does this depend on? Posting volume?

    Because it can be pretty useful to just give a quick upvote on a post I like instead of writing replying with new post or not replying at all.

    Cheers.

  • Same, they don't work for me either. Maybe disabled for Newbies? Although I've been here a while, I just don't talk much.

  • There's a formula involved. Keep posting, at some point the up/down vote function will start to work for you.
    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.

    I used to be able to upvote/downvote, but it stopped working in the past few months.

  • You could check with Matthew, but the most likely explanation is that it was accidentally activated for your account, later noticed, and switched off

  • I think it activated for me around 100 posts or so.

    Yeah, that's probably it. I changed the number of posts required to be able to vote. It used to be low, like 10 or 20. Now it's closer to a century...
    Just keep posting, and you'll get there.
    I'm trying to discourage trolls *cough* CROIX DE FER *cough* from signing up again and again, and downvoting people before being banned.
    If it takes 100 posts, he'll probably out himself/cross the line/etc. before he ever gets to 100 -- then it's back to square one!

    That was a great move Matthew, but the best thing you’ve done was when you ban Croix, all of the downvotes he gave  are erased! I wonder how many days he’s wasted giving me, Ladislaus, and others all those 100s of downvotes. 😂
    For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what exchange shall a man give for his soul?

  • I was wondering the same, thanks.  It's kinda annoying being downvoted by someone without them giving so much as a reason why, and not knowing who downvoted so you can follow up with them.

  • If you have any other questions, please let me know.

    I think the system works quite well. Nothing is perfect in this imperfect world, but it does the job.
