Suggestion: Have a timer for the Voting button?

submitted on July 9, 2009 by llocomotive in "Buxr Website / Contests"
This is in case someone clicks on the wrong button ( they are kinda close by).

Something like a 20-30 second timer would certainly help

    Not a bad idea. Especially for those of us who drink too much coffee in the morning. Eeek

    I was just wondering about this because I've been seeing a lot of people say they have misvoted lately. I know I do it a lot too and it would be awesome to be able to switch it within 5-10 seconds or maybe just decide not to vote at all if that's possible. I know I have misread a deal before and voted thinking it was good but then once I reread it I realized it's not. Like I said though I'm just curios.

    On deals, there can be "false positive" votes, as mooncow says when she looks further and decides a no vote is better. Negative require comment, and are rarely needed to rollback, perhaps except when an expired deal is negged instead for flagged. In that case, the rollback is unlikely to be done by the voter in 20-30 seconds.
    On comments, there seems to be a small but significant number of negative votes followed by "oops" comments, or occasionally positives followed by "oops."

      Also on the topic votes I see a lot of oops. But that's because it doesn't require a comment.

    Didn't we mention previously something about spacing out the voting arrows or making them bigger or both? That sounds like an easy fix to me.

      I just checked this Google Chrome voting issue. It looks to be some sort of a bug with the Chrome version 4 browser. If you downgrade to Chrome version 3 then the votes start working.

      Here is the page to download the previous version of Chrome:

      Alternatively you can wait for a fix however I am not sure when or if it will be fixed. I tried version 4 beta and it still has this bug...

      I tried using Chrome for a while, but I just can't give up Firefox. I love the extensions too much. And I have a way of backing up my Firefox settings, bookmarks, etc. with a free program called MozBackup.
