Conversations I mentioned this in another topic, but think the problem deserves it's own discussion. Since the new OSNews site launch, I have been unable to vote for comments. It does work occationally, once a day on average, but I cannot find any pattern or cause for the problem.

It appears as if the "+" and "-" buttons aren't working most of the time, or they're simply .gif images. My cursor changes as the mouse scrolls over, but clicking on them does nothing.

I have 19 votes remaining currently, the browser IE6, and I've enabled cookies. If anyone can figure this out...

and it's really standard AJAX.

I just took a peek at the javascript, and you are right, you dont get much more standard then that. did you roll that ajax.js file yourself?

I don't know where your javascripting ability is at, and I realise you probably dont want to redo stuff for no real reason, but I *HIGHLY* recommend checking out jquery (, it has become so much a part of my daily life that I don't think I could code javascript without it. It includes a dead simple ajax implementation too (only a fraction of what it does), literally just $.post(url, params, callback). So you could do something like

$.post("mod.php", { uid: "10232", modup: false }, function() { alert("AJAX done!!"); });

which would POST to mod.php with two paramaters (uid, and modup), and execute the anonymous function that does the alert when it completes.

So anyways, feel free to ignore me, but I plug it to pretty much every web guy I run accross.
