Ratings Stars not appearing Answered

I have discovered that while viewing Instructables, I cannot rate them because no stars appear in the box to the right. I see the current rating and number of views but no stars. I did discover that by passing my cursor above the rating that the value of the stars appears to the right of the current rating in blue. I am able now to rate the Instructable. However, it begs the question: if this bug is keeping many people from rating projects since they do not see the stars.

If you mean the grey stars that you click to rate a project or topic, they are visible to me on this topic - which project are they missing from for you?

Thanks, they are still not visible to me. I recently loaded Explorer 8. I wonder if it could be that.

Probably an image-load thing. Browser? L

I was suggesting the problem to you to see what you thought of it (yes) L

Are the stars flash or java based?

Java I believe, but as some kind of images, I'd guess on a general upload failure. It happened to me yesterday, but I just reloaded. Did you know that ~ 50% of rated instructables are between 3.0 and 3.49? L

There's an odd weighting to the ratings - if I rate this topic as 5 stars, it will not show up as 5, even though 100% of raters (ie me) gave it 5.
