When i remove a comment of mine and after that directly try to upvote another one i receive the message, that a upvote for a comment is only possible every 5 seconds.

Is this a wanted behaviour?

This is reproducable. Try it yourself.

  • Both, afaik, count as voting actions. And you can only perform one of those every 5 seconds. So by-design I'd say. – Bart Jul 30 '13 at 12:27
  • What a mess lol! Long story short, deleting a comment is actually a vote thus bound to the votes rate limiting. – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Jul 30 '13 at 12:30
  • Well okay. That escalated quickly. :D Thx for the answers! – Tobias Golbs Jul 30 '13 at 12:31
