Bugzilla: voting has been enabled, but please leave it alone

We've enabled the "voting" plugin in Bugzilla, to allow people to 'vote' for certain bugs. However! Please leave it alone -- no matter the temptation, please don't add votes to a bug.

We're using that mechanism to track number of times something is reported through a support request, in order to see which bugs generate the most support traffic. In order to keep things from being counted more than once in the tally, we're designating one person (the fabulous [personal profile] misskat) to do the tallying-up.

If you accidentally vote for something (it's really hard to accidentally do, since there's a confirmation!), it's not a huge deal -- you can change your vote to remove it.

Hmmm. Is it possible to edit the confirmation message to say something along the lines of this entry? Just to future-proof thingS!

Alas, it doesn't look like it's possible to change that through the settings, nor who is allowed to vote. Googling this is worse than useless, because there's a handy "move bug from [new status] to CONFIRMED upon voting" setting, which is ... not at all the thing that we are talking about.

Is there a way to limit who can vote? To avoid people accidentally finding the Bugzilla install and voting on things.

Okay so!

Easy is to put in some text here:

If you want to be tricky about it, you could probably check out:


And change:

my $canedit = $user->id == $who->id;


my $canedit = $user->id == $who->id && $who->id == 69;

but I make no guarantees for the latter :)
