It Does Not Appear Possible to View People who Have UpVoted an Idea Thread

From what I can tell there is no way to view the people who have UpVoted an Idea thread. I am a IMDb Sprinklr Champion and have limited admin rights. Can only IMDb staff view the people who have UpVoted an Idea thread or is this an oversight in the design of Sprinklr? It would be helpful to extend the ability to view UpVotes to non-priveledged users.

This issue became apparent in this thread:

Implementation of new genres 

Ironically, I can view the names of the 10 people who liked my post above with the Paul Simon quote, for example, but not the names of the 4 people who like this whole idea/topic.

Another, somewhat parenthetical issue:

If one upvotes (or downvotes) an idea, and changes one's mind, one cannot remove the up(/down) vote UNLESS one down(/up) votes the idea - there is no way to return one's "position" on the idea to "neutral".

Yes, RaviNathan, the inability to return my vote to 0 bothers me as well.

I already sort of complained about this.

Hi dan_dassow -

 

That is correct, currently only IMDb staff are able to view who specifically has voted on an idea.

 

Regarding your observations about not being able to change your vote status, I have made note of this as an improvement area to be addressed with the Sprinklr tech team.

Thanks. However, I would prefer if the system would also be updated to allow everybody to see who voted "yay" or "nay" to an idea thread, as can be done in regards to "likes" on problems, questions, praises and announcements.

I agree with Jeorj. We can all see the usernames of people who like an ordinary thread such as this one, or who like an individual reply or comment within the thread -- just not those who have supported an Idea. This seems more likely to have been an error by Sprinklr than an intentional decision.

I agree that "it would be helpful to extend the ability to view UpVotes to non-priveledged users."  Votes should be consistent with Likes & Followers so everyone can see who voted for an idea.  This setup worked fine on the old forum.

A much bigger problem, however, that is probably related to the inconsistency between the old and new forum is that all ideas seem to have had their votes reset to 0.  Can these be restored?  It took a lot of time for people's ideas to accumulate votes.  I don’t even know which ideas I voted for b/c they are not showing up on my profile, which is another problem.

This is a major setback for the user community as it’s very difficult to get IMDb to implement changes.  For ex, new genres were approved 11 years ago in the thread linked by dan_dassow at the top and still haven’t been added.

Also, merged conversations are missing their links.  See here: Rearranging the order of list items is not working correctly on the site.  “The main conversation” isn’t linked as it was on the old forum so there's no way to get to the merged post.

And should sprinklr also display who has Down-voted the Idea?

Down-voting was not a feature on GS.

How about on the announcement of the new version of the title page, a post by an IMDb employee, where the net votes are negative?

I think it is probably intentional that you can't see who up- or downvoted your idea.

Yes, Sprinklr should display who both the collection of members who up-voted and the collection of members who down-voted, even on announcements pertaining to popular or unpopular amendments to polices or to the sets of features of the IMDb interfaces.

Votes should be consistent with Likes as they were on the old forum. Users had an option to either up-vote or like a post/comment/idea or leave it alone.
