How can you tell how many votes an instructable has? Answered

The answer is probobly sitting right in front of me...



It will tell you how many votes it has if you vote for it.

um, voting for one's own doesn't count though, does it?

It used to. Altruist that I am, I pointed it out, and they fixed it. :D

If you unvote it it does. I thought he was wondering how to tell how many votes someone else's instructable has.

Quite possibly he was....I know I asked how I could find out how many votes I got in another thread, but didn't get an answer. Sorry for the hijack.... :-(

Oooh ok. Don't worry, hijack is my middle name :D

Ok, well, hopefully no one calls you by your middle name while you are on an airplane LOL

Go onto the contest page. Then there will be a pop-down and one of the options is "Votes" along with "Recent" or "Views".

They remeved the way to tell.

Yep, Just click on "VOTE!" and it will say how many votes that -ible has.
If you don't want to vote for an ible, but want to know how many votes it has, just click "VOTE!" and then click "un-vote"

Thanks to you two for that. A number of votes button would be a nice feature but maybe they didn't want tho skew the results. It might be fun to choose one and have everyone vote and unvote over and over for a minute at a predesignated time to see if the thing could keep up... Of course I'm easily amused. Wait scratch that next thing people would be trying to do the same thing to modems to knock them offline. Nevermind but thanks again.
