Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Follow this link to a comment (found in the notification inbox).

As of writing, it links to the last comment on the original question, which would normally be hidden.

There's a link just below saying add / show 1 more comment, but there is no other comment.

It seems like it's not expanding the comments in a consistent way.
The UI should look the same whether I browsed to the question, and clicked show more, or whether I clicked on a comment link to a hidden comment.

It shows "add comment" for me, which is especially wrong since I'm not even logged in. – Tim Stone Jan 31 '12 at 15:06
I see "add comment" too. – kiamlaluno Jan 31 '12 at 16:30
@kiamlaluno: Do either of you have an account there? Possibly that's why you get something other than what I get. In either case it doesn't seem right (when logged in it says there's another comment, but there isn't and when not logged in it says you can add a comment). – George Duckett Jan 31 '12 at 16:34
I have an account there. The fact Tim Stone doesn't have an account there suggests that is not what makes the difference. – kiamlaluno Jan 31 '12 at 16:44

One user self-deleted a comment there, which might be the source of the discrepancy. Possibly a timing issue where the delete happened but the denormalized count of comments wasn't changed.

At any rate, it seems OK now, and we normalize answer/comment counts daily to catch these sorts of things automatically.. in summary, just wait. :)

Thanks. Is there a list anywhere that lists what is cached in this way (i.e. updated daily/weekly etc.)? – George Duckett Jan 31 '12 at 19:44
