in thread AJAX replacement for voting buttons

Thanks, I did appreciate your feedback; my winking emoticon was meant to suggest I had expected feedback of any type :)

You are correct in that it won't reduce the load on the PM server unless you're like me and press the vote button after reading each post (Used to involve a lot of scrolling!). Ideally, it would be useful if one could specify to the CGI script that you're not interested in the full page being returned just some XML data with node reputation and votes left information.

If I get a little more time I may add in your suggestions - would involve a bit of webpage scraping using JavaScript :(

Voting without scrolling (was Re^3: AJAX replacement for voting buttons)

    I came up with a custom CSS hack a while ago to let me vote without scrolling. See Re: The big Vote button. It's not what you want if you really want to see the reputation change after each vote, but all I wanted to do was read and mark until I was done with/tired of a thread and then be able to vote without scrolling.
