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

When you click to fetch vote counts too quickly you get the message "You may only fetch vote counts once every second". You actually have to wait 30 seconds before you can fetch another count.

(Note that this only applies to users with >= 1000 rep)

It's been driving me crazy also. – Lance Roberts Jan 13 '10 at 18:42
I'm sorry, what is the vote counts fetch? – John the Seagull Jan 13 '10 at 23:27
@Vinko = click on the vote total to see the up/down totals. – user27414 Jan 14 '10 at 0:22
This will be fixed in the next nightly build – Geoff Dalgas Jan 14 '10 at 1:11
Thanks, Geoff! [15] – user27414 Jan 14 '10 at 4:00
Out of curiosity, why is there a limit on this anyway? – Kyle Strand Apr 27 '13 at 21:32
I tried finding a duplicate of my problem, and this is as close as I've gotten. I keep getting this dialog for viewing up/downvotes, flagging, closing and commenting, without even doing them once. I load a page, and can't do these things. It the randomly works after a while. I didn't debug this thoroughly but at least no bogus requests were sent. – keyser Dec 29 '14 at 18:37
up vote 6 down vote accepted

The timer for up-voting comments is similarly busted. Damned "code re-use"!
