Code is poetry

The KDE Brainstorm (brainstorm.forum.kde.org) voting software now has a couple of changes:

1. AJAX Voting: This was posted as an idea, and caught our attention. We soon confirmed that this is more of a necessity than a need. So here it is now!
2. Non-js support: The voting pad now works perfectly on environments that do not support javascript.
3. Forum based locking: We had been notified about the absence of the voting pad in the subforums (Implemented, submitted etc.) and at the same time, the need for voting to be locked inside them. Forum based locking now makes this possible.
4. Integrated plugins: We decided to fuse a few of the supporting extensions of the vote plugin with itself. This upgrade is a rather backend improvement.
.. and some more minor changes.

    Hello Sayak,

    This is indeed an amazing addition to the software, thank you!

    On what factor does the delay between clicking the vote arrows and incrementing the counter depend?

    It depends on your internet’s speed and the KDE Community Forum server’s response time.
