I noticed it yesterday.  Hit an up vote by accident and there doesn't seem to be any way of reversing it.  Seems a wholly pointless addition to me.

There would be a point to it if it allowed me to register my utter contempt for everything JKay says but it seems we aren't allowed to vote on mods' posts.

I went ballistic and voted for a lot of posts. Only problem I've used up all my quota for the day. :(

It is a new feature.. or rather, a newly enabled feature. Just thought I'd switch it on and see how it goes.

It's a bit like using emoticons; the online equivalent of traffic-calming road humps.  They did serve a purpose once, but then they get overused and become distracting.

When I saw the headline I thought this may be about the fair and democratic voting process in Zimbabwe ;)

  Does anyone know what the number means below the profile picture space when you move the curser over the name of the poster . ?

 

  I have a number 11   , not the number of warnings as I've only got one of them .  ?

It looks like it is the number of votes up you have had.

How many times can you vote? Yesterday I could only 8 times and today I've hit 10. :D

That is, apparently, your "reputation".  If you go into someone's profile page you will find a new section called Reputation.  Click on that and it shows you which of their posts have been voted on.  It looks like everyone starts with a reputation of 10 and then gains one point for every up vote they have and loses a point for every down vote.  So you (worldpunter) currently have a reputation of 12 as you have had 2 up votes on 2 posts.  I have a reputation of 8 as I have had 2 more down votes than I have had up votes on my posts.  I'm aiming for zero, so please mark this post down.

That may be OK for you, but I'm still confused over the new baby from last week! :(

No need for confusion: the stork brought it. :)

 

Now, back to voting up. I particularly wish to "vote up" your post about a happy fish being a tasty fish but I can't remember where it was.

  Ahh ,   I understand it now , the top post with the highest Rep is from Charlotte  , with 6 points at this time . There is a reputation score you can click on at the bottom right hand side of the forum page . I think in future days it will show who the sensible posters are . Well done Charlotte .

I have a cunning plan to impede your progress by consistently voting all your posts up.  Your attempt has been foiled.

 

MwaHAHAHA
