    Is it just once and I'm done voting that hub up - or is there like a 24 hour restriction in place, then I can vote it up again.  I think some hubs are absolutely super, and it would be nice to know if extra votes eg on day 2, day 3, day 4 etc are helping that hubber in some way.

    I've spent about 40 minutes trying to see if anybody else asked this question, and if it's there somewhere, I'm not finding it, so even just a link to the answer (if there is one already) would be appreciated.  Thanks!

      Thanks for asking one of those 'questions nobody asks...' You know what I mean?  smile This is a great one.  I vote as you do-some hubs deserve many 'ups,' but I don't know if they truly are tallied if from the same source.

    Hey Teresa,

    Actually, you can vote a hub up more than once. However, if you leave a comment on your first visit, then you might want to check on your comment again upon doing what I suggest.

    (a) you can refresh the page. However, when doing that, it will reset the page and all the buttons, so you can vote again. But, you might want to check your comment to make sure it was entered.

    (b) is to leave the page and come back to the page, and vote for it again.

    Hope that helped. smile

      That did help - thanks! I'm just thinking of voting once a day or so, on hubs I like, so refreshing won't come into it - but thanks for the tip about checking if my comment is still there, as it's useful to remember this - for those that do want to refresh and immediately vote again.  Thank you.

    I discovered a couple of times by accident with a mis-behaving  mouse, that you can apparently vote up your own hub.

    I'm not so sure this is allowed if done on purpose...but if not, should be disabled within one's own hub.  That would seem like cheating.  ???

      That would certainly seem like cheating.  Perhaps votes - accidental or not - of one's own hubs don't count.

        It is not counted (if my memory did not fail me)...

        I also like to try out new things especially when I just joined :p
