Voting disabled for guest users

Because there were some low votes by Queeky guests on good drawings, we decided to disable fivestar voting for anonymous users.
Please let us know what you think about this ....

Great policy, for sure!

Thank you very much, ph!


First off, congratulations on and thank you for the new server! The speed improvement is remarkable!

Also, I would like to thank you for all the hard work that you have done for us, and for your patience in dealing with so many people.

I am also glad that now there is a policy to at least deal with bad anonymous voters. In my opinion, the new policy will encourage more users to sign up. Although it may take a little more time for any good painting to collect enough votes to get to the front page, once it gets there, it will stay longer to showcase the site. So, it is a win-win situation.


Thank you again, ph, for all you do!


All the best,


KD

Fantastic

I think this is a very good idea. it is really sad that just anyone can sneak in and rate a wonderful drawing low. It has been discussed by several how nice it might be to somehow incorporate the rating with/inside the comment box so that the comment would only post along with the rating. that way no one would be able to sneak in a bad rating just to be ornery without being identified. Just a suggestion but I think your suggestion will be very helpful not allowing visitors to rate, Although people will still be able to rate without being recognized so there can still be some bad rating going on when not deserved. By making it so that you can only rate when leaving a comment the rating will be much fairer since no one will want to be caught leaving bad rates for no reason. Just a suggestion but I am very glad that you are taking steps to improve this since it has been quite an issue lately and we have lost artists because of this reason. Thank you Admin. Smile
