I assume it wouldn't work just to display the rating info and such in a separate place, would it? Seems like that may be the easiest solution if that was an option. Assuming that's not, the next best might be to remove the rating link and action from your newreply.php file and just make your users reply to images in order to rate them. That would require the least amount of initial work, as well as the amount of work needed when upgrading to a new version.

Because change their mind is what people do. Not to mention making mistakes. I'd like to be able to change my vote any time. RC876 perhaps...
That should go by your setting on whether you allow your users to change votes on threads, so it would be more of a case of us not going through the hassle of giving it it's own option yet.
