Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description phi1ipp 2007-01-28 12:05:53 UTC
Facts for the road:

1) People's filing bugs is a good thing.
2) The more people report bugs, the more bugs get fixed.
3) An easy interface will make more people report bugs.
4) Voting on bugs can help focus development effort on the most deserving glitches.

Bug description:

The voting function is hidden in normal font size at the bottom of the screen,
amid a lot of other UI elements that your average user would not understand (bug
dependencies and status changes). I'm filing this as normal priority and
severity because I believe it seriously affects the functionality of the system.

Report the bug upstream.

Or, to clarify . . . we're using Bugzilla, which has its own Bugzilla at http://  We have some hacks running but probably don't want to screw with the software 
too much, lest it become a pain to upgrade (assuming we ever will).

The latest version of Bugzilla has a different interface, you can take a look and see if you like 
it.  This one does have a huge amount of UI clutter, which is fine once you get used to it but 
horrible before that.  If you think we should upgrade to latest Bugzilla, you can open a new bug 
to that effect.

Well, it's nice that you mention because they have it
working - their "vote" link is at the top of the screen. It is your
configuration or "hack" issue, so fix it. But why am I wasting time on you guys.
Simetrical, I told you about checking your facts and you're still failing.

That is a poor attitude to take; your behaviour on this bug alone is completely

You've been advised that we're not running the latest version of BugZilla; we
may or may not wish to upgrade this in the future. We don't generally pay a huge
amount of attention to votes on bugs as it is.

Not a huge amount, but some of us do pay some attention to them, certainly.
