This is the same problem (or at least the same symptoms) as 46989, but that was marked complete. I've been getting this pretty regularly, maybe 6 times in the last week:

An error has occurred - please retry your request

It happens on both close and reopen votes. I looked the most recent time for the error information Jeff mentioned, but couldn't find it. Is this a known/common problem, or is it just me?

I should probably mention since it was provided in the other post: I'm using Firefox 3.6.3 on Linux

Confirmed on Safari: I took the fourth close vote on a question (today): same error message / question got closed some time later (I was still in the list of those who closed (in the last spot). EDIT: this was the question I was talking about ;-) –  ChristopheD May 31 '10 at 23:22

This should be fixed - we had to make some changes in how we were locking questions during close voting.

I get the same issue, however with just plain voting. When I do a ctrl-F5 the page fully refreshes and I don't get the same problem, but it occurs quite often

Refreshing doesn't fix it for me, I usually have to wait a few minutes and then everything seems to be fine –  Michael Mrozek May 31 '10 at 20:03

I get a waiting icon -- which I've never been able to out wait. The vote seems to have been cast, since if I refresh after a question that I've voted to close has been closed I see that mine is one of the close votes. This happens for me on both Safari/Mac and IE8/Windows.

I've had the wait icon before; usually it turns into the error dialog, but it takes a minute. I almost never have the vote go through, although it did on the one I screenshotted –  Michael Mrozek May 31 '10 at 20:10
