It doesn't work on my tablets or phone. All Android.

Try this:
1) Put the phone in landscape mode.
2) Press the vote button - the small pop-up for the vote will appear.
3) Press the Recommend button - nothing should happen.
4) Press the vote button - the pop-up should disappear.
5) Press the vote button again - the pop-up should reappear.
6) Cast your vote - it should work, maybe after a few seconds.

It works on my phone.

And yes, it's a known bug (for quite a while already, actually)

OK and is there a plan to fix it? Do you run Google analytics? Can you check what's the majority of users using (mobile or pc)?

Over the last 7 days

Devices
Desktop 50%
Mobile 45%
Tablet 5%

Browser usage
Chrome 54%
Safari 24%
Firefox 6%
Edge 4%

The fix is a todo, but not really high prio right now.
If anyone's willing to debug the JS, I'm happy to commit a provided patch.

I would like to help but I'm not skilled in js. However, if testing is required I'm in. Looking at the numbers it's 50:50 so half of the votes is missing...

It is not 50-50. Voting works OK on iOS with Safari on an iPhone.

We won't "fix" tapatalk. It's standard app.
Our voting system is f1t-only.

If you feel tapatalk is so much better than the site's mobile layout, then you'd better let us know what exactly you're missing, so maybe I can adapt the site a bit.

No you are right. I haven't saw anywhere the ability to vote in any site with tapatalk now that i searched for it.
If i want to vote i connect throw chrome.

Maybe voting not working is for the better sometimes, so many downvotes have been quite childish lately or are being used when people run out of arguments - i bet a large number of them even go against the rules on voting

From the FAQ:
What should be rated?
[...]rate down posts that are abusive to others, and nothing but ranting or are simply factually incorrect.


I mean, look at this:

viewtopic.php?f=1&p=892973#p892973
He later posted a source for that claim, so it wasn't "factually incorrect"

viewtopic.php?f=12&p=894024#p894024
"rubbish" ... ah yea ... good reasoning.

viewtopic.php?p=894018#p894018
"we'll see" ... that should be a reply

The "no jokes allowed" rating i got for half jokingly suggesting an age restriction for F1 attendance was imho questionable as well, ironically a general practitioner in Germany suggested to continue hosting football matches with exactly that, an age restriction.

I bet if you'd check who's negatively rating whom you'd see a pattern where it's people who had an argument of some kind on this site resulting in votes which are symptoms of mad online™
