Why can guests react to posts?
I am loving this addon, but I just got it installed and am having some issues.
I want to start off by saying I am a new Vanilla Forum user, I have used vbulletin and phpbb for years but I wanted to try something new for a new site I am working on. I installed Vanilla a few days ago (newest version) and have only tinkered with adding categories and the yaga application.
I have slightly modified a few reaction conditions (points, names, etc). Other than that everything is standard.
The main problem I am having is as follows:
When I am logged in (only user & admin at this time) I don't see the reactions listed by my posts. I assume this is normal as you don't want people voting on their own posts. Perfect. When I log out and view the forums as a guest, I can see the reactions -- Also good, because it lets me know the application is working. However, when I click on an emotion as a guest it logs the emotion and gives my admin account a badge for getting the first of whatever emotion was clicked. This happens in whatever internet browser I use. However, it only logs one click. So if I click "Insightful" in IE and then use Forefox and click the heart -- the insightful point will go away and will add a point to the heart.
Checking the permissions on both the forums settings and the application -- guests are only supposed to be able to view the system, or forums, not vote. Is what I have described normal behavior? I would assume the forum should give an error message saying I can't vote until I sign in -- Like how it works on these forums. Am I stuck somewhere between a member (ip address) and guest (application session) on my forums when I log out?
My second issue is that no matter what theme I use, the clicked emotions on a post display are displayed slightly out of line to the left of the post block making the post page look sloppy.
If you want to try this out and/or see the out of line display check out the forums. They are not linked from the main site yet, so if you need to test something out or create an account that's perfectly fine.

Thanks in advance.
