    Admins.
    I have been using the Rate this Thread function. And now it is not working for me. When I go thru the process it tells me that some lines of code are missing.
    "A required field called <em>ipaddress</em> is missing or has invalid value."
    It appears that I may have been blocked.
    I would like to have my use of this function restored.

    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.
    Cheers! Marc

    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.

    Best guide I know of: https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/...cp-ip-settings

    I think I found a setting to get around this. Can you give the "Rating" system a test?

    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
