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

Minor bug report here:

After voting a bit too fast, I saw the You may only submit a comment vote every 5 seconds error. Then I clicked the upvote button again quickly afterwards.

The error box moved up vertically about 20px, but my vote submitted.

Error: Success!

This bug also appears everytime you remove more than one comment in a short period of time. – Fabian Bigler Jun 29 '13 at 14:27

The error popup will disappear after a couple of seconds, and if you want it to disappear more quickly you can click anywhere within the error to close it.

This one is on the list, so if it hasn't been made auto fade yet, it will in the next few days .

The new error messages do not close automatically when you click elsewhere on the page. See this question for more on that topic.

The last time you clicked the vote arrow there was no error (presumably because the required 5 seconds had elapsed), but the old error message persisted on the page. You have to click the X icon to dismiss the error message.

Nice! As it happens, I've already upvoted that question. – Danny Beckett Feb 15 '13 at 1:13
Actually, it looks as though the error is regenerated on each click. I'm just basing that on trying to click the ✔ button to accept this answer, and getting a 'wait x mins' error. The error box fades out and in and is redrawn. – Danny Beckett Feb 15 '13 at 1:19
It seems I was just expecting the modal to close after x seconds/minutes... – Danny Beckett Feb 15 '13 at 1:26
The error now does get dismissed after every click. – Oded Feb 18 '13 at 10:34
