Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 believe this happens under the following conditions:

  • Vote to close as a duplicate
  • There was an existing "possible duplicate of" auto-comment for the same target question as I voted

The voting controls on at least the auto-comment* are gone after clicking through the "this question needs n more votes ..." message until the page is refreshed.

* I did it twice, but there was only a single auto-comment on both questions.

possible duplicate of What is the purpose of comment voting? – Jon Seigel May 17 '11 at 17:16
Other test comment. – Jon Seigel May 17 '11 at 17:16
You don't have any voting controls on your own comments -- but you're right; it's broken on all comments. – balpha May 17 '11 at 17:22
@balpha: It was so other people could test. :) Thanks. – Jon Seigel May 17 '11 at 22:04

Looks like I only brought back half of the functionality when I reenabled the "possible duplicate of" comment auto-refresh thingadongdong yesterday.

Fixed in the next build.

Whats your build path, like when to you release new fixes and patches for the site(s)? – JustinKaz May 17 '11 at 18:06
@Justin usually about 1-5 times a day (unless it's urgent we try not to deploy Stack Overflow itself during US business day when it's the busiest; meta usually gets a few more builds) – balpha May 17 '11 at 18:12
