in reply to Perlmonks AJAX Voting

Is there any way to use something like this, but without one-click voting? That is, I'd like to be able to change my mind about the vote, and only submit it when I click on the vote button at the end of the page.

    I agree -- strange as it may sound.

    If I end up at a node that I think is correct, I may signify my intention to upvote it by clicking on the ++ radio button, and continue by reading the replies. Sometimes I discover the node I originally upvoted is actually dead wrong -- in which case I may choose to change my vote to a downvote, or just decide not to vote on that node at all by navigating away from the page.

    It doesn't happen often, but the flexibility would be very handy. Perhaps this should be user-configurable?

      I don't think it's really odd. We only have so many votes and sometimes will have to make tough choices on where to spend them, especailly when our remaining vote count is fairly low. It's nice to try and go back the next day and hit some of those nodes I couldn't but I may forget or something may come up that prevents me from hitting PM that day. I also think one-click voting makes accidental or knee-jerk voting more likely.

    Have you used the "null vote"? It adds a radio button labeled +=0 which cancels your vote if you haven't submitted. Look at User Settings, under the miscellaneous section.

    No ajaxy Web 2.0 feel, but it does allow you to change your vote.
