    Hi Dube,

    There is a timeout on the recs and hides. After 24 hours you no longer can rec and hide a comment. The tip jar lasts longer, I think about a week.

    In your example comment above, the ability to rec or hide would have run out Saturday at 8:17 AM.

    You can still reply so you will see a lot of old and a lot of new comments. The newer ones are still reccable.

    I can't rec or hide a comment anymore. Neither button appears on any of the comments on any of the diaries. No matter if the comment was made minutes before.

    Is this the way it works on Dkos now? No rec buttons on comments anymore?

    What does no-rate mean?

    What causes a no-rate?

    Is this something new on Dkos?

    Thank you.

    No-rate means you have lost the ability to recommend and hide comments.

    Here are 2 diaries where kos talks about it.

    Apparently kos thought you used your ratings ability incorrectly, and so he took that privilege away. Maybe you hide rated something that shouldn't have been, or uprated, (recced) an insult or other comment that should not have been tipped. It could have been just once, or many times.

    He said he would look at this in about a month, so you should be able to get your rating ability back.

    Correction to my previous comment. In a diary by kos, 9/18/11, kos said he has not decided what he will do about reinstating revoked ratings ability.

    He is asked, and answers in this thread:
    "Honestly I haven't decided."

    I commented previously that kos would look at this in about a month. He actually said he "may." This was on 9/08/11.
    "I may revisit the ratings ban as well, though not for at least a month."
