I've been clicking stars left, right and center (only good ones, I promise), but they all still stay grey. This is happening on both io9 and Jez mainpages, as well as the ODeck. Anyone else run into this problem?

ETA: AFAIK, I'm followed by all of those/have author privileges.

ETA2: I can approve burners (at least in my own post), but only after a refresh. Which definitely doesn't work on the mainpage. Mods/tech people, can we really only approve with a reply on the mainpages?
