    You're new to Synchronet message voting I guess? :-)

    Currently in thunderbird(nntp), saw the voting module though. Guessing
    the vote/thumbs up are the empty messages I've been seeing in
    Thunderbird now and then.
    Maybe there could be a message ID that says SBBS VOTE so people do not freak out
    seeing empty messages in Wildcat, Mystic or NNTP.

    They shouldn't be getting/seeing the message at all.

    I think there should be a QWK setting at your hub where you can turn those
    off.

    Via NNTP? If you're getting empty messages via QWK, those probably are vote messages and that's configurable (you can turn them off) for your QWKnet account. For NTTP, there's no option to get votes or poll messages.

    Possibly a thunderbird bug... that said, would probably try to turn them
    on for network accounts in nntp feed(s), as I'd like to use the features.

    Also, not sure about the avatar, which is another thing I'd like to use.

    That wouldn't be too hard: NNTP article headers are very extensible. One would have to update both the server (nntpservice.js) and the various clients (e.g. newslink.js) to support it and then have a good opt-in/out method.

    Also, not sure about the avatar, which is another thing I'd like to use.

    The avatars themselves are not sent with each message. They're looked-up by user@address of the msg sender. Received via the syncdata echo.

    Cool, are vote tallys also in syncdata? Will need to figure out a way
    to aggregate this into my front end as well... haven't dug in much yet.

    No, votes are very different from avatars. There are 3 types of "vote" messages: ballots, polls, and poll-closures. A ballot can be a vote (e.g. an up/down-vote) in relpy to *any* message or a poll message. A poll message is a special type of message that includes meta-data specifying the visibility of the tally (e.g. not until closed, only visible by voters, etc.) and the enumerated available answers to the poll. These special messages are stored and transferred in the topical message bases (not syncdata).
