Description Chris Ward 2009-04-02 02:24:49 EDT
Description of problem:
One should be able to do with their votes as the wish; this includes voting negatively. This way, there is a proper balance. If 100 people want something and each provide 1 vote, but 1000 people do not want it... well... the vote meter will still show 100 votes, not -900 which is incorrect.

Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.4 of the Bugzilla codebase and
therefore this feature will need to be implemented against the new release.
Updating bug version to 3.2.
Comment 2 David Lawrence 2010-08-25 17:42:12 EDT
Red Hat has now upgraded to Bugzilla 3.6 and this bug will now be reassigned to that version. It would be helpful to the Bugzilla Development Team if this bug is verified to still be an issue with the latest version. If it is no longer an issue, then feel free to close, otherwise please comment that it is still a problem and we will try to address the issue as soon as we can.

good idea with negative votes. :')
