Or: Aaronut is six moderators by himself


image of six Aaronut flairs

To reproduce this, visit https://cooking.meta.stackexchange.com/about. Now click on some link in the page; I chose the "parent" link at the top of the screen. Now click back.

If your browser is anything like mine (and let's hope it isn't, because I wouldn't wish IE7 on anyone), everyone has just moved up a slot -- Sam Holder is gone and Aaronut now occupies two spots. Do it enough times and you'll discover that Aaronut is singlehandedly keeping the cooking trolls at bay.

I also reproduced this on the main SO about page, only there it works a bit differently. After clicking somewhere and then going back, each of the left column occupies the corresponding slot on the right column also.

So, um, that's not supposed to happen, is it?

  • No repro with IE7 on XP SP3. I tried returning to the page by using a link and by using the back button. I tried while logged in and while logged out. All flairs appeared correctly in every case. (That said, @Aaro is a force to be reckoned with.)

  • Hmm. I'm on Vista, but I wouldn't have thought the OS would make a difference. @Pop

    @mmyers, I didn't even know you could have IE7 on Vista. Thought it shipped with IE8. But that's neither here nor there. Let me know if you want me to do additional testing of some sort.

    @Popular Demand Vista shipped with IE7, Win7 shipped with IE8. Commented Oct 23, 2010 at 4:55

  • @Benny: Are you saying you can or can't reproduce the bug? It was marked completed, but I no longer have to use IE7 (or even have access to it) so I don't have first-hand knowledge.
