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

I was adding an answer to this question, and the banner popped up saying "1 new answers as been posted - load new answers". When clicking the link, nothing loaded and the banner disappeared.

A few seconds later, the banner reappeared. This kept happening and I clicked a few times but no answer ever loaded. After I submitted my answer there was no additional answer, just the one already before I started mine.

Perhaps someone posted an answer and promptly deleted it before I clicked "load new answers", but the banner should not keep appearing unless there is still a new answer.

Wait until a >10k user comes along. There may have been an answer added that was later deleted – Earlz Feb 9 '11 at 11:47
@Earlz: Yes that's what I mentioned in the question - but if it was deleted it should not keep saying there are new answers... – DisgruntledGoat Feb 9 '11 at 13:26

Did you have the question open in two tabs, or reach it by clicking the back button in your browser, or interrupt its loading at any point? All of those things have confused the banner from my end, before.
