I found at least two situations where the message dropdowns show incorrect status and action description.

Scenario 1

  1. Pin a message.
  2. Unpin it and clear stars for it.
  3. Reload the page.

The message dropdown now says:

You have starred and pinned this message.

  • Unstar as interesting
  • Unpin this message

Additionally, a star is shown next to the message.

However, the message is neither starred or pinned -- and the sidebar confirms.

A clearly unpinned message is reported to be pinned.

Scenario 2

  1. Somebody else pins a message.

The message dropdown now says:

This message has been pinned.

  • Pin this message
  • Star as interesting

The message, however, is already pinned.

A clearly unpinned message is reported to be pinned.

  • To clarify I didn't clear the stars in the picture of scenario 1. – badp Dec 19 '10 at 22:31
  • We can't repro scenario 1. – Oded Jul 12 '13 at 9:40

Scenario 2:

The pins may be slightly confusing - it is reporting separately because you haven't pinned it; underneath, pins are similar to flags and stars, but maybe it should handle this more elegantly (or hide this minor implementation detail).

Scenario 1:

Hmm... that is odd; I wonder if that is the old enemy: cache. I'll double-check whether this is handled accurately when cached. Added to my list ;p
