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.

This is rather difficult to describe with fancy pictures with red circles but it's easily reproducible.

Whenever I click Leave Closed in the re-open queue on MSO the "nominate this question for re-opening" pop-up appears. I normally press escape out of shock and a leave closed vote is recorded.

This is the latest review it's happened to me on: http://meta.stackoverflow.com/review/reopen/15029

You can also test it on http://meta.stackoverflow.com/review/reopen/15043, I clicked reopen this time and a leave closed vote was recorded but I also got a red popup stating that an error had occurred.

This is also occurring when the Edit & Reopen button is clicked, the edit box opens for a second before being overridden by the popup.

Whoah! That is indeed shocking. Reproduced the error with that exact same queue entry. –  Martijn Pieters Jun 16 '13 at 10:21
    
I just thought I'd misclicked earlier, glad to know I'm not going crazy –  Rory Jun 16 '13 at 12:31
    
It took this happening a couple of times before I believed that I wasn't going crazy an mis-clicking everywhere @rory :-). –  ben is uǝq backwards Jun 16 '13 at 22:12

I just got it on SO using firefox. Tried only with Cancel. –  Balog Pal Jun 26 '13 at 10:14
    
And on SO with Safari just now - which button do I press to leave closed? –  Mark Jun 26 '13 at 11:29
    
This happens to me every time. I click Cancel if I want to leave it closed but I don't know what that does! –  Fiona Taylor Gorringe Jun 26 '13 at 13:36

Also on AskDifferent on reopening it gave me the dialog twice –  Mark Jun 26 '13 at 22:59
    
Clicking "Cancel" votes to reopen as well. –  Evan Mulawski Jun 26 '13 at 23:16

Oops, this was caused by a javascript copy-paste gone awry. It's fixed now – sorry about that.

a worry is that this was reported 10 days ago but needed a bounty to get a response from a developer –  Mark Jun 27 '13 at 8:53

@Mark - It wasn't the bounty that did it. –  Oded Jun 27 '13 at 9:04

Experienced this on a non-mSO site today, so not fixed. The extra popup is shocking because it asks the direct OPPOSITE of what I pressed.

I press "Leave closed", the popup asks "Nominate this question for re-opening?". Please, pretty please don't shock us like that.

Thus, I suggest either getting rid of this confirmation popup, or re-wording it to avoid astonishment ("Man, WTF! Have I pressed the wrong button?").

This is a UX misfeature on par with the infamous: "Cancel this operation? Cancel (to proceed) OK (to cancel)".

Question and other answer cover it but barely (due to lack of images), here's the prerequisite hand drawn circle from SO:enter image description here

And you actually get to vote on reopening(+1) if you do that :S –  user210841 Jun 25 '13 at 23:30

I started getting this today systematically on all Reopen Keep Closed votes. Reproduces on Chrome on both OSX and Win7.

In addition, clicking Reopen will prompt the "Nominate this question for reopening?" dialog twice. When clicking ok on the second dialog, there's the error message "You have already voted" (or something similar), the Reopen vote itself is recorded properly.

I just clicked "Edit and Reopen" and the item went away having apparently recorded my Reopen. I used my history to go find the question and edit it.

At this rate, I don't think reiew results are going to be very meaningful. We are casting votes we didn't mean to cast... maybe,

This is happening on ServerFault today, clearly related to the new close vote reasons.

Review bug: I pick "leave closed" and it pops up "Nominate for re-opening?"
