My votes aren't registered Answered

When I vote for a contest, my vote doesn't seem to register. I click to the grey "Vote" button and it turnes to orange "Voted", but when I return to the page, it is grey again and says "Vote" as if I haven't already voted.

My specs are :

A desktop PC
GNU/LINUX Ubuntu Mate 15.10 x86-64
kernel 4.2.0-35-generic
Mozilla Firefox 45.0+build2-0ubuntu0.15.10.1

I first noticed the bug right after I published my two last instructables :

https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Hanging-Gardens-of-Babylon-with-Gourd/

https://www.instructables.com/id/Simple-Gourd-Birdhouse-With-a-Branch/

The instructables contained stock photos that had to be removed in order to be published. Maybe it has something to do with this?

You can't vote for your own projects.

you can just so you don't make fake accounts.

You can click the button, but your vote doesn't get counted. They have ways of spotting fake accounts as well.

That's fine. You can also encourage other family, friends and social media contacts to join up and vote.

I am talking about voting for other people's projects, not mine.

First fix to try is clearing your cache and reloading the page.

If that doesn't work, consider emailing HQ on service@instructables.com.

It's nothing to do with the photos.

Tried that to no avail. Also cleared the cookies and logged in from another pc. I will email HQ. Thanks for your help!
