Enable/disable voting by Feedback type

For example in Feedback type "Questions" it doesn't seem to have much sense to allow voting if it is a simple question (since it only aims to be answered).
And it doesn't seem to have much sense either to order this type of feedback by number of votes.
MVR Do it first

I agree. I have a forum used for knowledge base. Forum should be able to be set without voting.

Or maybe rename the counter to be "Was useful" instead of "Vote" so the you can set to order them by the most useful/popular articles.

We added only positive voting recently.

Now that I have been using this more, I feel that voting or not voting does not depend on a forum... Well it could but in many situations i need to disable voting for a single topic or enable for a specific topic. Can you implement voting settings per topic as well?

...and now that I read the title of this topic it says "voting by feedback type" however resolution was to implement voting by forum, which is also valid, I initially thought that was the ideal but it makes more sense doing it per feedback type (or at least per topic as I suggest in my previous comment).


Because...

Ideas - makes sense to vote

Questions - no sense to vote

Bugs - makes sense

HowTos - not needed

Articles - not needed

etc...

Voter will be linked to feedback status, will realize it soon.
Default types will be Idea,Question,Bug,Thanks and we will add Article type it's will be displayed without voter.
