Defect Description

Over at Gaming, I have enough rep to vote to close questions. I've been using the 'flag' option out of force of habit, but when I select that a question doesn't belong, it takes me to the close panel anyway and allows me to register my vote. However, once I have voted to close, what ends up happening in the UI is it improperly shows the new number of close votes and flags.

Example

Current Behavior

Say I have a question with one vote to close it. Following the process in the defect description, I vote to close it as well. However, the UI takes my close vote, adds it to the existing count (1), then edits the count beside flag (my entry point) to show 2 flags in addition to the previous single vote to close.

Expected Behavior

There should be two votes to close.

Additional Information

If I refresh the page, the counts show correctly. In other words, the back-end code is fine, but the AJAX callback seems to edit the element I clicked rather than the element that represents the action I actually took.

  • When I was experiencing the above behavior, it was on a PC. I haven't tried it recently, however. – Shaun Nov 5 '11 at 6:42
