    Default What is the point of having voting banner?

    Not against having the banner but, if It (voting software) doesn't allow *all* forum members to vote then what is the point of having that big banner in the forums.

    It's not a question of being a forum member or not, it's about membership
    in the openSUSE project - and the project needs the word out for all
    project members.

    Members got a private email. But not all membership bother to vote...

    The point is to reach and remind as many members as possible. Good, isn't it.

    I agree with the OP, why do I have to see this enormous intrusive banner when looking at the forum?
