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

Noticed something weird on this question.

If the comments are collapsed the vote count of my comment is zero.


When expanded the vote count is correctly three.

No-repro. Shows as 3 for me when collapsed... – animuson Sep 27 '13 at 18:57
Yup! repro for me. Not in the first try though. – hjpotter92 Sep 27 '13 at 18:59
@animuson: I've noticed this happening with comments that I've posted only, everybody else's comments appear fine. – George Mitchell Sep 27 '13 at 19:00
Weird I've up-voted animuson comments but I can't see my vote, and there is no action aviable (since I've already voted). Edit: Fix by posting my comment. – Marc-Andre Sep 27 '13 at 19:04
If I vote on your comment I can reproduce the bug. – Marc-Andre Sep 27 '13 at 19:11
Yup, same results as @Marc-Andre after voting up. – Jamal Sep 27 '13 at 19:13
we just rolled out a pretty significant refactor of the comments system, and there are a handful of minor issues. I'll be getting to all of them as soon as I reasonably can. – Ben Collins Sep 27 '13 at 19:13
@BenCollins: I voted on your comment, but there is nothing now. The irony... – juergen d Sep 27 '13 at 19:16
Repro for me too with my comment in OP's screenshot. – gitsitgo Sep 27 '13 at 22:46
Has anyone been able to reproduce this since 9/27? – Ben Collins Oct 2 '13 at 16:53
@BenCollins Not for me – Marc-Andre Oct 7 '13 at 21:17

Same issue here:


I guess everybody is having second thoughts on the flogging


Ah!  Flogging is back in the running!

It seems to only appear on my comments and only when there is a "show more comments" box.

Before the "Show more comments" click, here is the "comment-actions" td:

<td class="comment-actions">


<td class="comment-actions"><table><tbody><tr>
    <td class="comment-score">
        <span title="number of 'useful comment' votes received" class="warm">7</span>
