Can't vote, just says "Is this a winner?" Answered

Hello. I recently found a bug regarding voting for the youth contest. The bug does not let me vote for a project. All it says is, "Is this a winner?" My OS is Mac OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.8, I am using the latest version of Firefox as my web browser. Here's the URL to the project, https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Glow-3D-Printer/. Here is a screen shot too.



I can't replicate this. Please try refreshing the page. If that still doesn't show the vote button make sure you are logged in, you have cookies enabled on your browser, and no script-blocking add-ons active on your browser.

In Chrome, WinXP, there is no gray vote button. When I go to the contest page, I see that the ible is "voted". I unvoted there and went back to the ible. Still no gray vote button but just pulling up the dropdown seems to register a vote.

and another weird thing, I just noticed that I am following that author and favorited the ible without me doing so. How do you unfavorite an ible?

If I go to the ible, the favorite button on top quickly disappears when the page loads.

That guy messed with the webpage causing that to happen. It is being fixed by the Dev team.

I never edited the pages source code, it just happened. This still happened even after I refreshed the page.

Penelopy is referring to the author of the instructable. He included a short code, making everyone visiting it following him and voting and favoriting it.

Wow, it just got featured in the newsletter, he is going to be getting a lot of votes and subscribers.... Not really fair in my opinion.

"The guy" being the author? And he did something funky with his instructable?

You can unsubscribe and unfavourite by doing so on the instructable itself. If you don't get it the first time, try refreshing.
