I just cast a close as dupe vote on a question here on Meta. In the past it used to push the auto generated comment live but now I can't see my comment after voting, only after I reload the page.

Can we get the old behavior back please? :)

Feel free to vote to close as dupe of some random question just to test, lol!

Also worth checking if same happens with flagging.

Edit, January 2014: still happens

  • Are you getting any comments live? Or is it just not the auto-comment for duplicates? Nov 14 '13 at 16:44
  • I've seen this today as well. Live comments work, the dupe comment doesn't. Nov 14 '13 at 17:01

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about things I don't care about. Also, have you seen my shoes? Nov 14 '13 at 17:06
  • Yeah, that is irritating. You might write a real one before you realise the auto one is coming Nov 14 '13 at 17:07
  • @RichardTingle sure, here they are! ;) Nov 14 '13 at 22:21
  • It's also happening on the comment upvotes for user-generated close reasons. Nov 17 '13 at 13:08
  • @ben comment upvotes were never updated live... or were they?? Nov 17 '13 at 13:29
  • Ach, now you're making me doubt myself! I think they were; they certainly are for normal comment upvotes and it makes sense if they are for these as well. Nov 17 '13 at 13:40
  • @ben hmm.. the AJAX triggered when closing probably just reloaded the whole comments and re-populated the placeholder, while now it's not. This would explain both our observations. Nov 17 '13 at 13:41
  • @Oded well, your crystal ball has a bug! Nov 17 '13 at 13:59

    It is no longer under warranty.

    @gparyani - I think it may have been some bad interactions with my genie lamp. Or the ring. Not sure. Magical tech support never called back.

    @Oded think status-reproduced or even status-review will calm down the mob a bit. ;) Nov 19 '13 at 20:56
