    rinselberg POLL 04: Using the balance scales icon

    This is the last of four polls that I have in mind for the Just Conversations forum. I put no time limit on the poll. The poll is entirely my own idea. The questions were screened for acceptability by the OptiBoard forum moderators. My only objective is to have some fun.

    "Scales" refers to the balance scales icon that can be used to add to or subtract from another poster's reputation.



    The scales icon is at the upper right corner of every post.

    "Scales message" refers to the message that can be sent (as an option) when adding to or subtracting from another poster's reputation.

    There's no box to check in the "I can do without Reisenberg entirely."

    What am I missing here? Do you mean the little green boxes under the screen name???? I don't see any "scales" in the upper right corner.

    It is a 9 year old thread. Back then the software used a scale icon. It is now a star and located on the bottom of each post on the left side.
