I just noticed that clicking a JS-like link on MSO (like to show more hot network questions) just bumps me to the top of the page and doesn't do anything else.

Also, adding a comment or any other JS-related feature (i.e. inline editing, 10k inline comment editing) is borked.

Well, that was my bad. Time to back go spin the wheel of blame to make sure we choose an appropriate victim. I should have shelved a change and instead pushed the go live button.

    Next time ask your manager first before you push ANY button, please. – rene Jan 21 '14 at 20:10

    Vindicated - somebody pulled out the JS compilation safety net which is supposed to throw errors if one of us decides to do something stupid and jump from our 10,000 foot platform. And yes, I hit the ground - HARD. – Geoff Dalgas Jan 21 '14 at 20:28

Voting is broken: the one valid use case ever for a "me, too" answer?

Sign the petition below the line if you're having the same p0rblem. You will all be expected to upvote the question when things are fixed.

    I was wondering how many clobbered edits would result. That was funny for a minute or two. – jscs Jan 21 '14 at 20:00
  • Looks like you guys had some fun! :) – Shadow9 Jan 21 '14 at 20:27

This appears to be happening for the following buttons

  • Share
  • Flag
  • Any of the formatting posts at the top of the posts page
  • Vote buttons
  • Flag and close buttons
  • View Vote counts doesn't take me to the top of the page, but it doesn't show vote counts either
  • More hot questons

Yaaay it's fixed!


That is fantastic, it is borked. And I had to get through robot anti-verification to post this.

When I click on anything that requires JS, it seems to be trying to load a URL that happens to be one of my bookmarks.


Favoriting doesn't work either.
