    I have a hundred forum posts and I think read the COC. Is the COC code of conduct?

    You should be able to vote regardless of it you've done either, its just that your vote won't be eligible. You should be able to vote by clicking on the "status" category in the debates tab, then selecting "voting" and whenever you scroll down in the debate itself, as long as the debate is finished, you should be able to vote. Ensure that you do read the entire voting policy before you vote.

    Hi! I'm a voting moderator. Seconding what Theweakeredge has already told you, since you have met the 100 post quota, all you need to do is read the Voting Policy & CoC (Code of Conduct). You can then vote freely, although realize that you will be held to the standards outlined in the Voting Policy.

    you have to certify you read the policy by clicking a button at the bottom of the page (from what I remember)

    Can you send a screenshot of the voting page on a debate?

    I created a test account to confirm what you were experiencing. When I create a new account there is nothing for me to click to certify I have read the voting policy... No button except a "was this helpful?" questionnaire. That's not good, because before there WAS a way to do so. Something's changed...

    Notably, I do not have 100 posts/2 debates on that acc. Maybe that's a prerequisite to the button appearing, in which case maybe the system is simply lagging for you.

    Sorry for the confusion. Your account also needs to be at least three days old.

    Related thing, this month I am going to try to have a referendum for voting policy updates. Any suggested changes?

    Maybe more interactive reports? Where you can explain the issue you see specifically, maybe that would help Mods determine which reports are trolls and which are legitimate more effectively?

    Oh, thank you. The only change I can think of; is to add the 3 day old thing.

    We've wanted that for a long time. I don't think it will happen mechanically, but in the draft I'll add a note suggesting people DM a moderator with details on why they made a report.

    Don't be surprised if all of your votes get contested and removed.

    The "RFD" standards can be a little ridiculous.
