Seen this before.
Can you confirm your IP address for me? If holds true to pattern, you'll be on a IP Version 6 address
I just used the feature, and it seems to have worked.
Alright, we're confirmed on the cause.
Your public IP address is a IP Version 6, a sorta new thing that is replacing the previous IP Version 4. In a nutshell, the site software was never made to be compatible with IPV6, and while for most things it doesn't matter, there are some exceptions, and Rating Threads is one of them. That function requires an IP address to be attached to the report, and the site won't recognize your address.
This is a core software failure, meaning it's a hard one to fix. We have techs looking into it, but for the time being, there are ways to change your public IP address from V6 to V4.

Did you try the steps in the link I posted?
Got the same popup when I tried to rate this thread
I think I found a setting to get around this. Can you give the "Rating" system a test?
Damn. I'll keep poking
I had no idea that....... that even existed. What is it's purpose? Does it even have a purpose????? Bob
Bill, Though I have used the 'Ignore' feature in only one instance, personally, I don't care about a 'rating system'. It's just a forum.....not really very important. Bob
