A good alternative would be when the vote options go missing to just have some dot of color between the forum topics, I like it better. Kind of an "if- then-else" statement. If voting options active = use vote count between, if not active then = "parsing dot" between.
LOL, I come from COBOL and RPG land so take me with a grain of salt.
Not saying to change the original just give an alternative (such as the vote count "eye break"). Add a dot, a line, anything. The "old" active forum topics looks like a bad e.e. cummings poem to my eyes these days. Probably worn myself out researching. :)
