The vote button was a great idea, and would be even more useful if it 
had both "yes" and "no".  It should likely only be available for 
registered users.  It could be done with a drop down menu that would 
allow for any number of votes on current issues.

Speaking of the drop down menu for special pages...  It now functions by 
making your selection and clicking on "go".  Would it be any more 
difficult to simply allow double clicking on a selection?
