I was viewing NullPoiиteя's favorites when I noticed it was showing an item twice.

Screenshot for those too lazy to visit above link:

The questions are the same, but for some reason it appears twice. So yeah...

  • Well, it was added twice as favorite same like in this report, probably Nick handled just that specific case. Commented Sep 17, 2013 at 6:58
  • Nothing strange here, NullPoiиteя just really likes that question.

    I like that the question that got duplicated was one about not needing singletons. Commented Sep 17, 2013 at 11:58

1 Answer 1


Somehow, we have two favorite votes recorded for NullPoiиteя on this question, a week apart from each other.

So, the page reflects what we have recorded.

I don't have the data to show if there we missed recording an unfavorite vote (most likely explanation), or that for some reason it failed to remove the record (an exception on the executing thread could cause that).

Now, this isn't harming anything, so I will not mess with the DB to fix it. But if NullPoiиteя unfavorites and re-favorites the question, we should show a single record at that point.

Tagging with as I can't reproduce a double favorite...
