    Voting is such an easy thing ' To One's Self "

    Now i am one to approve any voting on my threads and i am one to promote it.. But what i hate is me having the ability to vote on my own thread

    This might sound strange to many if not all that are with the forum... But i do not and hope not, that people vote on their own thread.

    It's sad and makes the thread mean nothing and have no standings.... So place close or lock this ability

    I think it's weird too that you can vote in your own poll. What I do is just put a vote on the third neutral choice so I don't accidentally affect the results of my polls in a meaningful way,

    Is this a feature that is widely used? I've noticed its existence for years now, but never thought of it as something many users utilize or check when viewing a thread.
    Read my work on Medium, my blog, and connect with me on Twitter.

    I don't see a problem with it. Not sure if people care either way. As for polls, I've never seen anyone vote themselves (Well, minus Silver_Knight but that was in jest).

    If the voting system had any meaningfulness attached to it, I'd agree. However, nobody seems to notice the little stars on the right so I guess we can all just move on.

    Would be great if 1-star threads would actually move down the page while higher rated ones stay at the top (similar to Reddit I suppose).

    you see a move option could work for the number of stars a thread gets...

    I only really see 5-star ratings if mistercrow (Rad) had posted in them. Not saying he does it intentionally. It seems to be automatic, which defeats the purpose.

    Still, I wouldn't prefer a system where only the highly-rated threads remain at the top since they wouldn't necessarily have any new posts or be new threads.

    How, higher stars and that means higher post, logic can prove that...
