I have searched for a while but I can't find anything really close to this.

I was reviewing edit proposal on SharePoint when I came to this answer and the related edit by Devin: link here. Since as you see the edit is strange because it improves the code snippet by making it more close to the sample in the question, I wanted to check the question to ensure that I should approve the edit.

I opened the question in a different tab, read it, checked the answer again and voted it. At this point I returned to the review tab and approved the edit.
A little after, I returned to the still open Question tab, to see that - as expected - the answer now had the "an edit has been made..." message alert over it. I clicked on the alert and the new answer reloaded, with no indication that I had voted it: the numbers where correct, but the arrow wasn't lit.

Thinking I forgot to vote, I clicked the up arrow again. The vote counter increased by one for a split second, then it returned to the original value. This time, the arrow was lit as expected.

As you can see, this doesn't seem a really dangerous bug, but I am still writing this notice for the staff to know. Free to close it as deferred, I am only interested in reporting it, a fix may not be a priority for now.

  • Well, the bug is in the AJAX that either fails to bring back the "current vote status" from the server, or fails to handle that detail. – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Dec 16 '15 at 20:25
  • @ShadowWizard I know, and it is not like it is a big problem either. I just wanted to have it recorded. And if I get the fabled "amazing grace" hat in the meantime, it is just an added bonus. – BlueSoul Dec 17 '15 at 18:57
  • Cheers @SPA, just wanted to explain the tag I added actually. :) – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Dec 17 '15 at 19:01
  • @ShadowWizard I didn't even noticed the tag. I just assumed it was my spelling. It always is the spelling. – BlueSoul Dec 17 '15 at 19:08
  • Actually your spelling here is perfect. Kudos! – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Dec 17 '15 at 21:09
