Those who've been getting a "Invalid Session" error when trying to vote:

I've found out this is actually a bug with this version of Vbulletin. The upgrade to 2.2.7 (which we'll be doing very shortly) will fix this.

It's to do with the sessionhash variable for people who don't use cookies (and sometimes even those who do) Some proxies mess it up. 2.2.7 creates a second session variable and stores it in a new column in the sessions table. If the first fails, it will check the second one.

So again, this will be resolved when we do the upgrade shortly. In the interim, if you PM'd the forum moderator your vote, I'm sure they'd be happy to add it for you. Apologies for this inconvenience.
