New Vote feature

#1

There is a new vote feature. Is the number of votes limited on purpose? I didn’t see this discussed anywhere. Also it popup a link to take me to see all my votes but when I clicked it, the list I see doesn’t appear exclusively a list of my votes.

Can’t speak to how the number was chosen, but it seems to every user (or userid in the case of folks who have multiple Sense’s) gets 8 votes. That seems like a fair way to prioritize requests.

Just wondering. By the way I only got 4 votes.

I think I got 3

Interesting, I wonder if it’s based on something else tied to member accounts - how long they’ve been a member or something perhaps.

I’ll bring it up with the rest of the staff and we can see about sorting this out. It is a useful feature for voting on things like feature requests, but we do need to make sure it’s setup properly.

Us “junior moderators” will be investigating with Ryan how the voting rights are set up. It’s based on a Discourse plug-in.

Voting is currently disabled while we sort out if it’s a good fit for the forum. In the meantime, please continue to use the Like functionality on all Product Wishlist threads.
