Summary0003083: Similar Anime: Add indicators for current vote status
DescriptionCurrently, if you've voted for a similar anime, it will show the following:
-- if you upvoted: downvote + revoke buttons
-- if you downvoted: upvote + revoke buttons

This is quite confusing, since it's difficult to tell what's your current vote. A simple solution is to also show (an non-clickable) checkmark icon for approved similar anime, and an X icon for rejected ones. Show this on show=anime, show=addsimilaranime, show=latest2&do=similaranime, and anywhere else they may appear.
TagsNo tags attached.

To clarify what CDB means: it's not so much that telling your current vote is difficult, but rather that the current display is a little counterintuitive. While perfectly logical, that way of displaying the data isn't immediately apparent to the user, who is likely to be confused at least a couple of times before understanding the behavior.

I imagine the checkmark should be green and the X should be red. There should also be a tip saying "You have upvoted/downvoted this entry" when hovering. If necessary to stick to two icons for space reasons, the checkmark/X could replace the up-/downvote one, with the downside that swapping votes would require two actions instead of one.
