Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

There is a problem with the front-end voting system on Area 51. When you first click on the score of an example question to view the up- and downvote count (only available for 1K+ users), and then try to vote, the votecount is incorrect.

How to reproduce:

  • Go to a random Area 51 proposal in the definition phase
  • Choose a random example question and click on the score to view the individual up- and downvote counts

enter image description here

  • Vote up or down
  • The votecount is now incorrect

enter image description here

If you retract the vote right away, the wrong count is updated correctly:

Refreshing the page does show the right value (15 after the upvote in this example).

Oh wow, "incorrect" doesn't quite cover it. :) – Adam Jun 14 '13 at 17:46
@AnnaLear thanks for the screenshots! – Camil Staps Jun 14 '13 at 17:57
They just forgot to cast to integer, so "14" + "1" is indeed "141". :) – Shadow Wizard Jun 14 '13 at 22:34
I always thought it was funny how this bug only occurred on Area 51 and no other SE site. I'm glad you reported it. I've seen that bug for a long time but just never got around to reporting it myself. :) – jmort253 Jun 15 '13 at 2:24

Heh, good catch. This is fixed now.
