Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I have noticed this many times.

If you star a question, upvote it and then quickly refresh the page, the upvote is reflected while the star is not.

What can be the reasons for that? I am guessing they could be specific to how star and upvote buttons are programmed, but still I am not too sure that is the case. Any ideas?

Maybe because no rep is involved in starring and rep is number 1 priority? Just a guess though. – thyrgle Aug 30 '10 at 19:42
@thyrgle: starring => no rep is involed => less calculations => it should be faster? – Lazer Aug 30 '10 at 19:49
I don't know just a guess. – thyrgle Aug 30 '10 at 19:52

I can't reproduce this -- on SO, I upvoted, then starred, then hit F5 as fast as I could.

Question showed upvote and favorite, as expected, after page reloaded.

I suspect it might be due to network latency?

Are you starring very large questions (30+ answers) or questions that are unusual in some way?

I think because I am using much slower internet connections sometimes (likes of 128kbps or 16kB/s). – Lazer Aug 31 '10 at 6:39
