I'm sure I had a downvote or 2, but they don't appear at my profile page, I only see the up votes I got.

What do you think?
I agree. I've previously said the same thing several times in PMs. I think we need a 3 tier voting system: agree/disagree, technical merit, and, my favorite, humor! Forget all this other stuff, who are the funny guys here?

Without separating the agreement votes from the technical votes, this messed up mix of popularity, agreement, and technical merit will just continue. Separating the voting would also reduce the need to post one line +1s and emoticons.

Going further, I'd like to see the voting functions mimic Facebook in that you can see the names of those voting.

I was viewing on my Kindle and noticed I could not up vote a post in ""Proposed 2017 F1 Aerodynamic Changes"".
However when I changed to my PC it worked fine.

Are you viewing the site in a regular browser? What's the screen size? Did you try to view in landscape?

Heck if I know.
Just Google on my Kindle.
Truly no big thing as I almost never use the Kindle for internet stuff. Just killing time at the Dr.s office.

Well I had no idea you could browse the web with a kindle. Thought that was only for reading books.
I guess someone will have to donate my one to reproduce this :D

Then again, if you use the forum via tapatalk, voting is not possible either.

Click vote button. Click upvote button. Close vote menu. Reopen vote menu. Upvote. Works for me on mobile devices when I can't vote properly.
