Once in a while, I'm browsing on the Stack Overflow trilogy, and I vote up an answer or two and then refresh the page. What happens is that the votes have attached themselves to answers I didn't vote for, and have been unattached to the ones I did vote for.
Unknown. Unable to reproduce consistently.
Votes stay attached to the answer I voted for.
Votes occasionally attach to the wrong answer.
Browser and OS:
Safari 4.0.4 for Mac; Mac OS X 10.5.8
More irrelevant thoughts:
Personally, I see 3 places where there could be a problem.
1. Browser problem (rendering incorrectly for some weird reason)
2. Problem with the voting script (recording a vote for the wrong answer) (fixed upon refresh)
3. Problem with the output script (sending incorrect output even though DB is right)
If I experience this problem again, I should be able to eliminate either #2 or #3, depending on whether the error is persistent or not. (I'm not sure at this time if it only displays incorrectly for one instance or if it does so consistently)
@SOFU team: If you feel inclined to ignore this bug report because of the lack of repro steps (presumably, you guys haven't experienced the same problem) until I get more info, please do so.
