Hi,

I used to be able to vote 1-5 stars for an image in the galleries. Now when I click on "rate thread" I only get one option from the drop down which says "Love it!".

Has the voting system been changed??

Yes, it has.
It used to be an oddly abused popularity contest, and some times an exploited system. People ordered by stars, and some individuals with too much time on their hands would make new accounts to vote themselves or beg star from friends and members, and achieve an undeserved visibility.

Now the system acts as a first tier filter to bring things to the attention of a panel than then votes for CGChoice, and has, overall, proven to work a lot better.

I know it's not as "fun", nor it feels like you can properly give a score to something, but in all other respects the changes worked out to an improvement in quality and fairness :)
