Hi all,

Real new to the site, looks great!

How do I 'vote' for a writeup? I do not see any + or - radio buttons? I do not see the VOTE button at the bottom of the page.

Am I just too much of a nube to even vote?



This is the help that I read...

"First of all, to vote on any given writeup simply click on the + or - radio buttons. You can click + or - on each writeup of a node and vote on all them at once by then clicking the VOTE button located towards the bottom of the page."

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Because you are only level 1. See Voting/Experience System for more details.

    You can vote only when you have level 2 (for that you must collect 20 XP, and currently you seem to have only 1).

    You can read more about Voting/Experience System here.

    I actually wondered about this as an initiate as well, and found the answer at Voting/Experience System. The number of votes/level is listed in a table, and you'll find that you don't get any votes until level 2. Time to go out and start being an XP whore.
      That does sound like fun... "XP whore." I'll get XPFixation and be all set!
        Well you got enough now :) happy voting, and welcome to PerlMonks :x

    FWIW, I had a heck of a time finding the docs that explained XP and such... but then, maybe that's all part of the path a monk must tread.... :)

    It's also worth mention that you don't actually acquire any votes until the next vote allocation after you reach level 2. Vote allocations happen once a day in the morning, IIRC.
