Why the forum vote function sucks and what to do with it
For a comparison, this is a service with a really comfortable and useful vote system. I think there is even no need to describe what things the forum lacks for proper voting system, all you need is just to look at the service. And this is a right thing, this is how vote functional should work.
I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for this to happen. Many of us have ideas about the best way to run the feature requests, but for now it is probably easiest and most time/cost effective to just keep to the forums.
Okay, well, I still hope something will change - it's quite difficult for user to use forum for purpose it wasn't intended. Thank you for the response, anyway.
