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

I noticed this because Jon's tracker was showing +60 for this answer (+3 and accepted, so should be 45 rep):

From my rep report:

 2   2719060 (10)
 2   2719060 (10)
 2   2719060 (10)
 1   2719060 (15)
 1   2719060 (15)

The two accepted answers are nice and everything, but I don't think it was that good...

not really a duplicate, as it keeps happening after the "fix" – juanformoso Apr 27 '10 at 20:50

The duplicate vote has been deleted and I recalced your rep (I shudder when I have to recalc you big hitters' rep :)

Yes, there's a bug in the accepted answer routine - Benjol's two accepted answer vote requests were made at the same time which bypassed our checks for previous votes.

We're looking into how to better lock per-user actions; I have some crazy ideas, but I'm probably going to have to ask a question on Stack Overflow :)

We like to think of ourselves as inbuilt scalability tests ;-p Maybe a nightly script is a better way to go than locking? Just a thought... – Marc Gravell Apr 28 '10 at 5:22

Related to Accepted answer reward +15 awarded twice!

I think Benjol did it again, probably he found a flaw in the system

In this post, He claimed that he could vote 10 times on a particular question and also mentioning about accepted answer.

I should have look his posts and start answering from now :-)

Interesting. Not least because it clearly isn't actually fixed. Unless the "fix" was, "ah, what's the chances of that happening again; pfff" ;-p – Marc Gravell Apr 27 '10 at 7:38
I think Benjol got some kind of superpowers. – Pavel Shved Apr 27 '10 at 8:17
@Marc - In my mind, that's a well known and valid fix for a shrug report. – womp Apr 28 '10 at 5:49
