    Bug step-by-step Description: Whenever I attempt to upvote any post older than a few weeks old, the above message appears.

  • @nixieosm Same this happens to me a lot, and I think it is because the forum was made this way, you aren't allowed to vote old messages for some reason I don't know, and I don't think this is a bug. It's probably just a feature of the forum, but I don't know what is considered an old post because I am not able to upvote a post from 3-5 months ago either.

    I am also wondering this question: How much reputation do you need to downvote a post? In the past, I have tried to downvote posts, but it always says I don't have enough reputation to downvote the post, even when the person that made the post has less reputation than me. I saw someone with 50 reputation downvote a post, and I have 49 reputation, so maybe you need 50 reputation to downvote a post, but I don't know this for sure. 🤔

  • I just answered my own assumption and I now know for sure that you need 50 reputation to downvote a post, and I tested this to when I got my 50th reputation a few minutes ago, and I am now able to downvote posts.

    The forum is designed with certain restrictions and they are so for good reasons.

    @nixieosm Posts made after a period of over 30 days can no longer be upvoted nor downvoted.
    @uchenna-a It's good you just figured and answered your question 👍
