There are two problems with the following screenshot:

  1. It says that I voted on the answer 21 minutes before I took that screenshot, despite the answer only having been posted 3 minutes before I took that screenshot.
  2. It says that I've voted on my own answer, which I believe shouldn't be possible.

How did these two things happen?

I'm guessing it has something to do with the fact that I downvoted the other answer to that question.

    Aside: Why were you trying to downvote your own answer? – StephenTG Aug 27 '13 at 18:52

    Is this on a clean refresh of the page? Any things you remember doing that might have caused the votes to get jumbled? Your answer correctly shows as a score of 0 when I load the question. – animuson Aug 27 '13 at 18:52
  • @StephenTG: I wasn't. – user232555 Aug 27 '13 at 18:52
  • @animuson: No, and I'm seeing a score of 0 now too. I remember seeing my answer's score at -1 with a blue down-arrow, thinking that I might have accidentally clicked on it and been allowed to vote my own answer down (though up upvoting my own answer should obviously not be allowed), so clicking on it in an attempt to undo the downvote, the score becoming -2, clicking it again in an attempt to undo that, and then seeing the red box. – user232555 Aug 27 '13 at 18:58

    Hmmm, maybe related: Voting counted on wrong answer. – Arjan Aug 27 '13 at 19:03

    The only way such thing can happen as far as I can tell is when the HTML gets garbled somehow and the hidden input holding the post ID is changing place. So, what browser you have? Can you check with its dev tools the location of the hidden input with the post ID and maybe get some hint this way? :) – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Aug 27 '13 at 19:18
  • Would deleting the post and undeleting it reset the "post date"? – Cole Johnson Aug 27 '13 at 19:31

    Reproduced after manually changing the ID using the browser's dev tools. This confirm my previous comment. – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Aug 27 '13 at 19:37
  • @ColeJohnson no, the post date remains the same as the original. – psubsee2003 Aug 27 '13 at 19:41
