Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

I tried to upvote a comment but I got a little box popped up that said "this comment no longer exists". I clicked "load 1 more comment" and tried to upvote the comment (which had been reposted), but got the "you can't vote on more than one comment in 5 seconds" notice. Shouldn't my first vote not have been logged since it didn't actually happen?

Technically ... probably ... but it's an extremely rare corner case that is easily worked around by waiting the remaining n/5 seconds :) (it was probably on 3, or 2 depending on how long the XHR request to load the new one took to return). So in reality, you probably would not have seen it if you waited 1.5 more seconds before voting, given normal use. – Tim Post Jan 4 '13 at 3:22
Is there really a time-out? – Wolfgang Wilke Jan 19 '13 at 12:54
