This suggestion is about the voting of posts/comments on Steemhunt, so for every Upvote Button and about the resteeming of posts on Steemhunt, so every Resteem Button.
An upvote is only worth something if it takes place in the first 6.5 days.
After 6.5 days you can still upvote a post, but without any effect. That's why I suggest disabling the Upvote button after seven days on steemhunt.com. As you cannot vote on a post after seven days a resteem would be useless. So I also propose to disable the resteem button after seven days.
Mockups / Examples
As an example I take this post from @nieloagranca. It is actually eight days old so by far over the payout. On the first picture I show the current situation, if you swipe to the right on the picture you can see a possible solution aufter implementation.
scroll to the right on the picture to see a possible version after implementation
Especially newcomers are confused by the still existing possibility to vote, because after a short research on the result come that this would bring nothing more. Without offering an advantage, the vote buttons lead to confusion among users.
Also the resteem button does not create any value after seven days.
The changes would make Steemhunt look easier because the function of voting is fully visible.
