Can someone explain why I get a message that I "vote too much" after leaving three votes? Is there a three vote limit to voting and if so, why?

I think it's because voting is just so you can rate an outstanding (or dreadful) translation. The ones that really deserve some extra praise because they were perfect or very poetic, I don't know. I think that, If there was no limit to voting, friends could just go and give 5-stars to all of his other friend's translations, or people with a grudge could just ruin someone's rating.

You can just give a "thanks" to all other translations and leave a comment if you have something to say.

Best regards!

I think there was a time when voting abilities were connected to the the rank a user had.
I don't know if it still is that way-
There used to be some information in the rules or the FAQ, but it seems to be taken out.
So that means: You can only give so many votes in a certain time period.
(it is in order to avoid abuse, I figure)

Yes, I think there were some incidents in the past like the examples that Musunee mentioned that made admins restrict the number of votes.

Hm, seems weird to me, but sure, I guess I can see the point. I just think they should mention somewhere what the limit is, since I didn't know anything about it and can't find it in the FAQ. But the message said that abuse of the system could result in a banned account, and if it's not clearly stated what's allowed or not, that seems unfair.

That's exactly what happened.

So what is the exact limit on voting? I can't find it anywhere.

I don't remember the details, you could look it up on similar forum topics, but junior members can vote far less frequently than senior/super, etc.
So you will need to add some translations to satisfy your voting craving. If you vote, please do this according to the LT's guidelines for voting:

I've been following the voting rules, don't worry ^^ And I don't want to go around voting for tons of things, but I would appreciate if there was a clearly stated rule somewhere if there's a limit to voting, not just getting a random message that my account might be terminated.

Limit on the number of votes depends on the user role:

Novice - max 3 votes in 24 hours
Junior Member - 10
Member - 20
Senior Member and above - 30

They won't ban you for "voting too much" (because you simply can't, we are restricted). They will do it for abusing the system, as in... voting for your friends because they're your buddies, and voting on languages you don't even know, etc.

If you vote 3 times a day (which is your limit), it's ok. But if you vote 3 times a day everyday for the same user, THEN you should worry.

The message you see is simply a reminder that you should not abuse the voting system. It's not telling you that you're doing it already.

Why can't I rate a translation?
I click on the stars but nothing happens...

You have to click submit after you've clicked the number of stars you want.

That's not it, someone has deprived me from the right to vote and I have more than two years to vote.
The "submit" icon does not exist and the stars are dead and shadowed.

The stars are shadowed probably because you’re trying to vote for a translation that is in a language which is not your native language or one in which you’re fluent, as per you profile.

Again, this is not because I am trying to evaluate a translation which is English-Greek where is my native language.

I think the whole issue was done by a user who had suggested a long time ago to delete votes in my translations from a moderator, this user was a moderator before and then deleted his account and created 2-3 new accounts and in course deleted them and since then his traces on lt are ignored.
I believe that the person who has banned me from voting he is a moderator (as long as he has that right).

makis17, you were denied the right to vote back in March, 2018, and you're probably aware of that.

Of course not sir, unless you sent an email notification, via PM I haven't received anything.
Could I found out about why you banned me from evaluating translations, please?

The reason for this was repeated violations of the voting rules. According to our notes, you discussed this limitation with a moderator.

Limit number in what time? per day, week, month year?
There is a further restriction: Votes only possible for translation into a language which mastered fluently (according to somebodies self evaluation)

Not so easy and clear as you wrote. I was restricted sometimes to one vote.
