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

There is a noticeable delay the first time the upvote or flag images are "hovered over". Can this be resolved by pre-caching (using JavaScript) or combining several images into a single file (using CSS)?

This also appears to be the cause of the "loading..." bug (?) that is occasionally (momentarily) seem when clicking to see the detailed the up/down votes.

This is one time and it takes 2 seconds. But it bugs me too. – deleted Aug 3 '09 at 3:10

All images are fully sprited now, so if you have one image, you have them all.

(there are some minor exceptions for a handful of SE 2.0 sites with special styling, but not for voting.)
