Trying to "Recommend" an article with the star-click, but now it reads "Unrecommend"

Which is not my final intent. Shouldn't it read "Recommended" after I click the "Recommend" button or star?

    I believe it changes to "Unrecommend" to give you the option to do that. If the button is orange and says "Unrecommend" you've rec'd successfully. If you hit the button again while it says "Unrecommend" you will be removing your rec. Basically, the Recommend button turns into the Unrecommend button once you click it.

    I think I won the contest for number of times the word Unrecommend was used in a paragraph. :)

    LOL! Thanks! I don't remember it doing that a while back.

    Could I make a suggestion to the powers-that-be to make it read "Recommended"?

    Thanks so much...

    Hello, and thanks for your comment here. (Thanks also to Flowergirl77 for my first chuckle of the day).

    Yes, you've done the correct thing, and yes, the display is a little disconcerting. Last I knew, we do have a design tweak in the works for that issue. It's not clear how long it will take to sort it out, but it'll happen relatively quickly.

    We appreciate your support of the mission of the site, and your virtual applause for posts you like.
