    I assume you want the ideas to still be visible to members of that idea portal but would like to disable the actual voting for a private or public portal? If this is true, can you provide more detail on the use case you have in mind for showing the ideas but not allowing people to vote on them? This will be helpful for understanding the actual requirement and/or problem that you are looking to solve with this change.

    Also, is it the desire to disable at the Portal level (i.e. applies to all users) or disable by user, or other?

    I would like to disable it for the entire portal. The use case is that I'm using a portal for an FAQ, and don't need voting for questions/answers.

    The use case you bring up is a unique one - in using the idea portals as a FAQ. 

    That said, the prime use of the idea portal is to be a place to capture feedback from stakeholders to help you better understand what your users are looking for. With this in mind, the voting functionality is a key component of the feature that we do not have plans to add a disable setting.

    We are planning to use the ideas portal as our common intake. I would not want the end users submitting requests getting concerned if there are no votes for their submitted efforts.

    My use case is that we're using the portal to collect feature requests collected from our current/potential customers from our various functions. Only company employees are able to use the portal. We have no need for voting, since our concern isn't the amount of company employees that think the feature is a good idea, but rather the amount of customers/potential customers that have made the request.

    I think it's quite reasonable to allow the disabling of votes for implementations where democracy is not used as a method for prioritisation. Within our organisation we want to be able to gather ideas from a wide range of internal users and those in contact with customers (mostly customer service) but those users, whilst they outnumber the rest of the company, don't have the context required to feed in to decisions on priority. Their votes would skew results towards features which make life easier for CS agents but might not have wider business value.

    Once an Idea has been implemented and is marked Available we would like to be able to turn off voting for those Ideas as continued voting is a waste of time.
