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
