What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

One screenshot will explain it the best:

It shouldn't be there - appeared right after posting the comment. When reloading the page it disappears so something goes awry with the AJAX handling.

Clicking it is reloading the existing comment(s) and open the new comment text box.

I had just started writing a question reporting this exact bug. –  Jerry Dodge Sep 2 '13 at 20:31
    
Except, this was from March 2012, but now it's September 2013...??? –  Jerry Dodge Sep 2 '13 at 20:33
    
@Jerry it's a different bug, already reported and a dev confirmed it but also said it's pointless to fix at this point. Anyhow, it's showing only after you edit a comment of yours, not adding, so different enough to deserve its own report. –  Shadow Wizard Sep 2 '13 at 20:59

This was a race condition between posting a comment and displaying it now that realtime comments are enabled here on meta. This bug will die on the next deploy.

FYI I am experiencing this bug, and this is well over a year after this was reported and fixed. –  Jerry Dodge Sep 2 '13 at 20:33
