The upvote/downvote tooltip here on Meta was changed to simply "this answer is useful" or "this answer is not useful". Nice and dandy. Only problem is, that it's showing that tooltip on the upvote/downvote arrows for question as well. Taking this one as example to demonstrate:

I know the irony and maybe it was better to edit that other report adding yet another part but it already got 5 tags so no place for additional once it would be fixed. :)

    It seems to only happen on questions with an answer? Let me try that. Yep, that's the case. Added an answer and hey presto! – Bart Jul 3 '13 at 10:09
  • @Bart yep, good catch! – ShaWiz Jul 3 '13 at 10:10

    @m0sa this comment is useful. ;) – ShaWiz Jul 3 '13 at 10:11
  • Ooh, some good detective work going on here. – JonW Jul 3 '13 at 10:12
  • I'm seeing this on SO and SU as well, not just Meta. – Old Checkmark Jul 3 '13 at 10:25

Fixed, should work correctly everywhere now.


It appears that the error only applies to questions that have at least one answer.

For your question, for example, I first saw:

Correct tooltip

but as soon as there were answers (including this one), we see:

Incorrect tooltip

  • That's weird. When I see this question, I see exactly what the OP stated.. O.o – javatarz Jul 3 '13 at 10:11
  • You stole the fame from poor Bart! ;) – ShaWiz Jul 3 '13 at 10:12
  • @JAnderton that ironically seems to happen because Martijn posted this answer. :) – Bart Jul 3 '13 at 10:12

    But wait, how did you test this by leaving an answer if this is they answer you were leaving when you were testing it... Am I in The Matrix or something? – JonW Jul 3 '13 at 10:13
  • @Azik it's a dev guide to help him hunt the bug down and slay it. – ShaWiz Jul 3 '13 at 10:15
  • @JonW: You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone. – Martijn Pieters Jul 3 '13 at 10:15
  • @Martijn did I hear shadow?? – ShaWiz Jul 3 '13 at 10:16
  • @ShaWizDowArd: Hey, we are doing all the diagnostic work for him! :-P – Martijn Pieters Jul 3 '13 at 10:16
