I tried to upvote this question on Meta Stack Overflow using the Stack Exchange iOS App Version (current version right now). I have a 4th generation iPad with iOS 8.0.

Got an error message stating:

"Could not perform this request with your account. Please try logging back in. If this persists, let us know on meta."

Dutifully, I then tried logging off and in again, with the same results. I was able to upvote the question by using the mobile app on Safari, no errors at all.

I also can upvote other questions and answers in SO using the iOS app, so this might be related to the specific question/site.

Thanks for all the hard work! The app is already great on iPad!

  • You can upvote other questions on meta.SO? and answers? – rene Sep 27 '14 at 17:01
  • Yes, to be sure, I've just looked for a good question and upvoted it. Also the answer. – Luc Sep 27 '14 at 17:12
  • That particular question has seen some status changes over the last couple of days but at the moment the only difference I can see is that it is tagged as featured. We have to wait for a dev to investigate/repro. – rene Sep 27 '14 at 17:16
  • I can't reproduce this with my 3rd generation iPad, iOS 7.1.2, same app version – VMai Sep 28 '14 at 12:11
  • @VMai it has to be done on a meta of a site you don't have account in just yet, or maybe also meta you never visited before. (first visit should auto-create account) – Shadow Apr 23 '15 at 21:31
  • I had this same problem yesterday with the newest iOS app version on iPad 2. It was a site where I have an account, and was logged in. @ShadowWizard, I can't remember whether or not I've been to that meta, so that might have been it. I hope it gets fixed, though, so I don't have to go to Safari each time I try to vote at a new meta! – Sue Apr 24 '15 at 2:41

    Sure @Sue, no doubt there's a bug here. You can ping Brian in chat just in case he missed this bug... ;) – Shadow Apr 24 '15 at 5:39
  • @ShadowWizard Will do! I've chatted with him before and he's always kind, and encourages people to let him know how the app can be its most helpful! – Sue Apr 24 '15 at 15:46
