Multiple Vote as Helpful sometimes not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tawt i saw an issue with vote as helpful. That is, marking more than one post (or is it more than one user's posts) as helpful, causes the text "vote as helpful" to not change to "already voted" and allows subsequent clicking on the same box. The subsequent click brings up an "unexpected error".

    I tried to repro in the sandbox, but couldn't! Has anyone else seen this?

    HI Brain !

    Nopes, i can't repro it here either. I clicked it multiple times on Vote As Helpful but it only allows me to do it once and the text has been changed as Already Voted .

    Thanks, Hasham

  • An example thread

    I'm beginning to think it's because posts i already voted on (even before loading the page) are not showing up as voted on.

  • I've seen this as well but not sure whether it's because I've already voted on that thread.

  • I voted your post as helpful. That worked, it went from 1 to 2, but still shows "Vote As Helpful". Clicking again caused the error.

    Reloading the page (another tab) did indeed show that i had already voted. So, there's some flakiness in the voting system. I think they're adding too much realism to the voting box. :)

  • I just got the same problem. Steps to reproduce:

    1. Vote on one post in a thread.

    2. Vote on another post in a thread.

    3. Attempt to vote on that post again.

  • Works for me! :)

    Well, in this thread. I'm thinking size may be a factor. Or the amount of unique posters in the thread.

  • Well, in my case I voted for the same person in that thread.
