    One time I voted on a thread, I don't know how I did it, but I did. Is it that only super-mentors and moderators can vote on a thread? And it was a strange techical mistake that one time?

    On the first page of the thread, right at the top of the first post, look to the far right. (Maybe look for it on a thread you didn't start in case it won't let you see it on your own thread.)

    Edit: Better yet, I'll show you!

    It's down below: Rate This Thread. I can't work it either. I think you may have to be a contributor to have the priviledge of using it.

    Hmm...must be something only contributors have access to? Seems odd that only contributors can rate threads. :confused:

    :rofl: Don't worry, it's just a touch of jaundice. It goes away in about a year, unless you did that 6 year subscription thing. :biggrin:

    Well, who knew that the ability to rate threads would be the magic feature that convinced people to become contributors! Here I thought it was the ad-free viewing!

    I gave this thread a 5 but don't see the 5 stars. Vote it a 5, moombear, let's see what happens.

    Yellow is not a good look for me, and filling out the form was a royal pain. However, now I have superpowers.

    Well, I can use the rating option without contributor status.

    Did you actually try it? I bet it won't work for you.

    Yes I did; the thread has now 5 stars.
    In addition, if I try to rate it again, I get the bulletin message:

    So, I guess all it takes is two people to declare a thread a 5 star thread.

    What form? I just sent 'em $25 and turned yellow.

    Check his other credentials, Zoob. I think he outranks us. He is, after all, the official Norweed-in-residence. :tongue:
