I'm not sure whether this is a technical support question (ie a problem with my computer) or a problem with KudoZ itself.

When I vote a question non-PRO, now that the dialog box has been redesigned, the button that you click to vote has disappeared below the bottom of the screen. I have to keep pressing Shift-Ctrl and the minus sign to change the print size, and the button only becomes visible when the print is really tiny.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Not exactly... Jan 28, 2010

I just tried it and, on my screen, the dialog is off the top of the screen. All I can see is the Yes & No buttons.

So go ahead and "vote non-pro" on any given question and see what happens.....get 20 votes and nothing happens, get 50 votes and nothing happens..so why be so concerned on something that doesn't really have any use...

Do you use Firefox? Jan 28, 2010

Hi Phil,

The button hasn't disappeared. It just won't show on Firefox. I had the same problem and when I opened the page in IE, I was able to vote. I was too lazy to report it though, so thank you for bringing this up in the forums. I think the feature should be optimized for Firefox, and in fact, for most browsers.


@Roberto, once 3 votes are cast, the change takes place automatically. I mean, it did work this way. Is there a recent problem with the feature, or are we talking about different things?

Thanks Jon.
While we're on the subject, have you had any thoughts about the list of example non-PRO questions given in the dialog box, or are you sticking by it?icon_smile.gif

This list is part of the original definition written by Henry back in 2005 and in my opinion it clearly defines what is the intended definition of non-PRO questions.

Enrique

Dear philgoddard,

I took a look at the problem, and changed the popup to be wider, so it can fit better on smaller monitors.
Thank you very much for reporting this problem!
Can you please let me know which is your monitor screen resolution? I tried a resolution of 1024x768 pixels and now I can see the "Yes" and "no" buttons on that place.

Thank you very much for supporting ProZ.com and It's community
