So what browser do we need to have in order to leave feedback?

Im using the same as you, the heart has moved, its by the quote button.

This started out with both a Helpful and Unhelpful button and the heart was by the avatar . Leaf is still fiddling with it. You know what those Scandinavians are like  :)

I haven't yet seen any heart anywhere. Hmm...

No biggie, I guess.  :)

I gave my vote to one user and his post, I clicked I agree, and I wrote a comment. But that user still has 0 reputation. So, I tried to do it again for the same post, and I got this message:

An Error Has Occurred!
Please spread the love before giving it to this user again.

So you can agree or disagree with a post.

But if you disagree, does that necessarily mean it isn't a helpful post? I think it would make more sense to have a single "Recommended" option, if this is meant to be a rating on helpfulness only. Otherwise, "helpful" or "not helpful" seems preferable to "agree" or "disagree".

And what is the purpose of the comment? Does the poster get to see those?

It seems these are meant to be used rarely. I tried to leave another vote, and got an error message stating "You must wait 0 hours between reputation actions. You have approximately 11 minutes left to wait."

I only see a green bar under the avatars.  Where do I vote? 

I hope this doesn't start a war!   ;D

I'm pretty sure Leaf's post said that this is only for positive feedback. If you don't have something nice to say, you can't say anything at all.  ;)

Look to the left of the "Quote" icon, you should see a bluish heart. If you mouse over it, a popup reads "Mark this post as useful". Click the heart, and go from there.

I've tried in Safari, and now in Firefox, and do not see anything except the green bar. I'm on Mac OSX 10.4.11, Safari 3.2.1, and Firefox 3.0.8.

No, you can't disagree with a post. There used to be a 'disagree' option but that was taken away a couple hours ago.
Currently it is set to be able to leave feedback 4x each hour

Hmmm.. I just noticed a commonality among those of us who report not seeing the heart. We are all premium members. Maybe there is a permission that needs to be updated?

The counting wasn't working earlier,but should be working now.

You have to give 'useful post' feedback to 2 other people before you can give feedback to the same person again... in an effort to try and reduce biased positive voting.

It's still shows up for me as an option when I click on the heart.

Aha!

Ok, it is there, but if you try to use it, you get an error:
You are not allowed to give negative reputation to this user!

OTOH, I tried this on you -- maybe there's special code that doesn't allow giving negative reputation to Leaf only.  ;D  ;D  ;D

Now all those who hate my statements may vote against me... What a relief for some people ;-)

 :o

We can vote only if we like it - Not if we hate it.  Good for you ;)

Lol!
I was hoped to be one of most hated here  ;D

What really?  that is strange. Maybe it is a cached browser thing.. hmm.. Anyone else seeing two options?

It works fine now with Opera. Clicking again the heart has the effect of a Cancel button. It's cool, well done.  ;)

LE: still, work on the messages. I tried to give another vote and it said: "You must wait 0 hours between reputation actions. You have approximately 13 minutes left to wait."

Replace it with something like "You must not wait between reputation actions. Just kidding - you still have to wait 13 minutes".

Nope, just one, plus an optional comment field.

Any way to opt out of this?  I still have memories of the istock forumeter - that was a spectacular failure.

I am here to get useful information and hopefully share some when I have it.  I have absolutely no interest in participating in a popularity contest.

You already have 4 helpful posts. hehe..

Yeah, the words of Kelly and Bruce (from UGCX) keep ringing through my head  - saying how the forumeter was one of the worst ideas that was implemented on iStock.  I never participated much in the forums there so I don't really know how it worked - but wasn't there a negative aspect to it, where you could eventually vote someone into being a troll?  I figured if it was only helpful posts that were credited it would only be a positive experience :) and perhaps encourage people to be helpful.

I agree and as much as I appreciate Tyler spending his time trying to make this already informative forum more user friendly I don't really think this particular meter will have any worth. I know of someone on a microstock site forum who is very popular, but he talks the biggest load of cr*p I've ever seen.

I just cleared my cache and I tried it again. I still have two options.  :-[

OTOH, I just tried it on IE, and not only do I see only the one option, the i/f is entirely different (and much better) -- it's a popup window rather than a separate page.

Obviously I am seeing an older version, but I don't know how to get rid of it beyond clearing the cache! Oh, well, maybe it'll eventually fix itself.  :) I'm using FF 3.0.10, in case that helps anyone.

Lisa I just gave you one vote for one of your useful posts, and you want to opt out!? No way! :)
