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


  • All comments disappear
  • Message pops up like a comment:

    {"success":false,"message":"You may only edit a comment every 5 seconds."}

  • Reproduced on MSO and SO
  • Hasn't happened for a while; just noticed now
  • Possible side effect of site update?
  • Win7 with Chrome 24.0.1312.57

A recent change accidentally caused all throttled AJAX requests to get a 200 OK response. Comment submission throttling is one of those places where this broke things, since the JavaScript expects throttle (or any kind of failure) results to have an error status code.

Fixed now.
