    Default This voting thing I just noticed yesterday ...

    Okay, so people can vote for each other. But not for themselves ...

    .... except ....

    Hmmmm ... when I click on Moridin, an administrator, it seems he's voted for himself ...

    Whats up with that?!? I smell something fishy here! I wonder how many other administrators have high ratings ...

    So you admit to trying to vote for yourself HAHA your caught....thinks over what he just said....boy i need sleep.

    How can you tell that the Admins were voting for themselves? Eitherway its no biggy, they deserve good rankingsIMHO.

    Maybe the Admin can, maybe they can't. I'd honestly think that they can't...as the moderators can't vote for themselves (I know, I tried *hangs head*).

    When I view the "who's voted for ya" list, I think there are some problems with the display. There are people that I KNOW I voted for, but when I view their display, it doesn't show my name...even though when I count up the total votes, and number of voters, it's one voter short (mine). Then, when I click on someone I haven't voted for, my name doesn't show up there either. So unless I actually go an vote on a person, or if I remember, I don't know who I've voted for.

    So I wouldn't really trust everything on that "voters" list...especially with some of the error problems that have been occuring on this site. I don't care whether the admin can vote for themselves or not. There are only two Admin here (Armage and Moridin), so it's not like their going to dramatically sway their voting level. The real test is the total number of votes and where they (and everyone) stand. If you're doing good, keep up the good work. If your lagging behind, then try to make an effort to post more helpful or insightful things.
    Try not. Do or do not, there is no try.

    You can check by clicking on the number of votes you have that is located to the left of your user rating.

    You just have to click the vote count next to your rating.

    Wow Moose!

    You and I must be twins seperated at birth. How else could we have posted that at the same time?

    Anyways...I have a question. Under your name in my case Moose it says Skilled Player...under a lot of other players there are descriptions and things that I am assuming the person wrote...how do you change your own description?

    You have to reach a post count around 200, but I am not sure what the exact number is.

    Uh, apparently me voting for myself is something leftover from when Armage and I were beta testing the system, and I get an error message when I try to change my rating....I'll have Armage set my vote for myself to a 1 if it bothers you that much.
