  • It happens to me sometimes, usually when it happens(with me), this occurs but when i refresh my page my vote already counted, so i think your probably already voted, try refresh a page and see.

  • I see that the votes count increased, but it is not in green, so it doesn't look like it was my vote. However, I tried again and got the same error again.

  • When i try, my vote count increased, but it keeps saying Vote as Helpful, instead Already voted, so if i try again then i'll got this same error as yours. But i don't think that errors occurs only in the old threads, i already got this problem sometimes in new threads, most of them in C# General or C# Language.

  • So, this is a bug, but not exactly clear yet how to reproduce it reliably. Perhaps it was my vote that increased that count.

    Is it possible that this error occurs on moved threads? (That thread was moved).

  • Maybe yes, but this bug stills sounds confuse, since this error can happen with the new threads too, maybe is more susceptible in threads that was moveds or maybe mergeds.

  • I don't recall having this problem and I cannot duplicate. I'm using IE9 on Windows 7, mostly in TechNet.

  • I can duplicate it on the thread I posted. I am using Google Chrome. I tested in IE9 and there is the same problem. Apparently my voice took place, but I still see 'Vote as Helpful' title on that thread and clicking on that vote button always results in the 'Unexpected error'

  • I just tried in your thread (first post) and the helpful count went immediately from 4 to 5.

    I get more and more errors lately, but mostly when I save in the TechNet Wiki. I also am getting strange display problems in the forums, like the scroll bars hiding code (for a week now for me) and the editor stripping out my HTML when I post code using "Insert HTML".

  • So, it worked for you and the message changed to "Already Voted", right? BTW, I got 5 points now (I guess you also got them) because of that thread.

  • I forgot about the points and did not check. Actually, I think now I have duplicated your experience. I saw the count increment and figured all was well. I see now that the message did not change to "Already Voted". The count is still 5 but the message is "Vote as Helpful", as if I never voted. Now when I click to "Vote as Helpful" again, I get the error "Unexpected Error". Strange. I just did the same thing in a TechNet thread, where I voted earlier today (as verified in my profile) and I get the same error. The message never says "Already Voted" as it should. This must be new. I wonder how long this has been happening.

  • Now this kind of error, is happening every time, each thread(be her new or a old one), in the moment that i vote, it work perfectly, when i leave the thread, and back again, the post that i voted, is incremented(it working), but always show Vote as Helpful, and if i click, will throw 'Unexpected error'.

  • Hi All !

    Again i find the thread, which has Helpful votes included, but its showing me '0' Helpful votes when i see the thread. Please confirm with the Profile Activity of Naomi and Richard Muller they both have contributed Helpful posts on thread

    Voting on the old posts - doesn't work?

    So i think issue is only with the visibility of Helpful votes. Need this can be confirmed as bug.

    Now adding little more to content. As soon as i voted one of the post in this thread as Helpful i am able to see all Helpful votes.

    Please let me know if this doesn’t work for you. Hope I have answered you correctly.

    Thanks, Hasham Niaz

  • I tried again and got the same error. I voted another Itzik post in this thread, but I am unable to vote the very first post.
