Your vote button allows you to cast three monthly votes for threads/posts you think are "Way Above" the standard fare and deny ignorance in a very powerful or meaningful way. At the end of each month, the winner is announced and they have special "Way Above Top Secret" status for the following month. Each member is allowed three votes per month.
Our Way Above Top Secret award winners are easy to notice... they have a giant medal in their mini-profile, and the background color of their posts are a brighter gray than all other posts.
