Can't up vote (kudos) your own idea anymore?

Looking at past ideas it looks like if you up voted an idea in the old Jive system it carried over but the new Lithium system won't let you give your own idea an up vote? Am I missing something or just don't it wrong?

That is correct.  You cannot vote for your own post/idea.  You also can't downvote an idea.  You either upvote (give kudos) or you don't.

Re: Can't up vote (kudos) your own idea anymore?

I noticed that also. I guess that eliminates the "don't forget to vote for you own idea" problem with Jive ideas.

If you do give a kudo and want to remove it, you can do that. With Jive, once you voted, you couldn't remove your vote, you could only make it the opposite vote.

But what if you think it is a bad idea. Now that is just the same as never having seen the post or ambivalence.

Hi @Dale_Rosema -

@StephenWilliams is correct:

"If you do give a kudo and want to remove it, you can do that. With Jive, once you voted, you couldn't remove your vote, you could only make it the opposite vote."

The Lithium functionality is similar - if you like an idea, you can vote for it, if your mind changes, you can remove your vote.  If you believe it is a bad idea, please leave a comment with your suggestions.

Best,

Toby

I have made the request within Lithium to:

  1. Be able to vote for my own idea
  2. Get an automatic vote for submitting

How come clicking on Kudos counter makes it go DOWN now ?

Re: Can't up vote (kudos) your own idea anymore?

If you've already "kudo-d" a post, when try to do it again, it removes the kudo.

Re: Can't up vote (kudos) your own idea anymore?

Strange ... not very efficient.

I preferred the "old" counter who indicated (in green, I think) that you had voted-up.

Re: Can't up vote (kudos) your own idea anymore?

This isn't really solved, because it's still under request.
