I found a rather interesting bug with the comments. Here's what I did.

  1. Add a comment to a post.
  2. Click "add comment", the text box opens
  3. Delete the previous comment

The comment and the text box for new comments are both removed! This only seems to happen when the comment I am deleting is the last and only comment.

    I was able to repro this. Good catch. – Abdusalam Ben Haj Mar 8 '13 at 17:38
  • ... making it impossible to add a comment without refreshing the page, since the "add comment" button is also gone. – Dukeling Jul 27 '13 at 13:37
  • @Dukeling: Can you reproduce this? While researching another issue I found this but can't reproduce it any longer, but it may have to do with me being a moderator. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jul 27 '13 at 15:01
  • @BoltClock'saUnicorn Yes I can. Visualized steps to reproduce. – Dukeling Jul 27 '13 at 16:54
  • I was also able to reproduce it – Trying Tobemyself Rahul Jul 27 '13 at 17:00
  • What browser(s) does this happen in? – Emil Jul 27 '13 at 21:07
  • @Emil Reproduces for me on Chrome 28 and IE 10. – Dukeling Jul 27 '13 at 22:00

  • OK I just tried it here and it does not appear to affect me as a moderator. That said, something else does. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jul 27 '13 at 17:00
  • I can't reproduce it... – Emil Jul 27 '13 at 21:06

    Reproduces on Chrome 28 and IE 10, so I doubt it's browser-specific. – Dukeling Jul 27 '13 at 21:13
  • Doesn't reproduce for me in Chrome 28 on a Mac, so it must be something-specific, right? – Emil Jul 27 '13 at 22:02

    Scratch that, it reproduces, but only on answers with no other comments. – Emil Jul 27 '13 at 22:03
