On the UX Stack Exchange, recently there was a discussion about the vote buttons on Stack Exchange.
As shown here, the voting buttons are not there, unlike other posts:
On this question, it says that because nobody can vote, it doesn't show it. The accidental discovery could show a message like
You can't vote on locked posts, kind of like the 'you need 15 rep', or 'you can't vote on your own posts' messages. While the rationale is 'it's a global state', it's inconsistent with the rest of the site.
Can we please put the vote arrows back in those posts, same way we have in other locked posts?
