CSS problems - 2 minor fixes

edited October 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 Help
This discussion is related to the Voting addon.
Hi, the voting button showed up in the middle of the post, over the text, and resizing the window went out of screen. In the CSS I saw it is aligned with

position: absolute;
right: 684px;

in ul.MessageList div.Meta span.Votes, around line 130. Why fixed length in pixels, and why so high? I set it to 2em and now it shows on the right correctly, with no overlap with other content, even resizing. Is there any special case in which this setting does not work? (BTW, I can see many lengths are fixed in pixels)

Another problem for me was the background color of posts. Classes ul.MessageList and li.Item have the background overwritten with #fff (line 125). This screwed my colors, I had to comment it again. Can I ask why the color is overwritten? Shouldn't the plugin be independent from the site layout? If every plugin changes a color not strictly related with the plugin, the final result will be a complete mess...

Thanks.
