Can not vote in a closed thread - also in open threads

5,293 1,189 September 28, 2017 at 08:20 AM
Everytime I try and vote on threads (including brand new ones that are clearly not closed) I get this error message. Actually scratch that, I can thumbs up, but I can't thumbs down, after i pick a reason it says that I don't have permission to vote in a closed thread.

Hi.. I don't see anything in your profile that should be causing an issue. Please PM me with the threads you tried to vote on and couldn't.

And can you post a screenshot of the error message please?

Thanks, we'll have to wait a bit for a dev to look into this.
Your account is fine.
I just tried TDing and then TUing that same thread and it works for me.

Did you try it again after that pop up?
And TDs are requiring a reason to be selected.. I trust that you checked one of those too.

Hi,
I see that you did vote on a thread since then.. but again the devs will need to take a look about the TD issue.
The thread is obviously not closed.

Chiming in with the same issue on this thread: https://slickdeals.net/f/10669236-dishonored-2-imperial-assassin-s-pack-dlc-pc-digital-download-12-72-with-discount-code

Upvoting works but downvoting does not.

I can downvote if i pick "other" as the reason. Otherwise I still cant, I use whatever it defaults to accessing the website via chrome.

Weird because I was using chrome on my desktop and it worked just fine.
Are you guys running any extensions or add ons?

I have been getting "No permission to vote in a closed thread" error the last few times I've tried to vote any deal down. The threads are clearly not closed. Anyone else with this issue?

thanks for the report! unfortunately you're not the only one experiencing this problem...i've merged your thread into the existing one on this issue so that hopefully everyone affected can help provide more data so the devs can fix Smilie.

also, it would be helpful if you could answer the following questions:

there was a report that it was only happening in chrome on a desktop, not via mobile (not sure if this refers to the mobile web or the app). is this your experience too?

I just opened MS Edge, hit the site, logged in, tried to downvote with "not a good product" in a random thread and get the same error message.
