(A real bug report this time!)

I commented on Arda's nomination, and noticed that the input text box wasn't cleared like normal after the post was made. I refreshed the page and verified the box was clear, then posted a test comment to see if it would happen again — which it did. However, it also re-posted my original comment!


No one (mods and myself included) can delete them, flag them, or vote on them (though somehow Anna's comment got an upvote). Clicking to open the StackExchange™ MultiCollider SuperDropdown™ doesn't work while on the election page, nor does clicking on the arrow by one's username or hovering over the username. JavaScript issues?

Sorry for cluttering your nomination, Arda! :(

    It's because I'm that awesome.

    Speaking of the SuperDropdown, the arrow by my name doesn't work on that page either. Commented Jan 30, 2012 at 23:23

This has, indeed, been fixed.

Blaming Jarrod Dixon may commence at any time.

  • Thanks for posting that link, I have been trying unsuccessfully for a few minutes. I think the deploy might have a couple kinks remaining. Commented Jan 31, 2012 at 1:59
  • I have no idea what you're talking about :P Commented Jan 31, 2012 at 8:16
  • Jarrod? It's clearly rchern's fault.

    It doesn't seem to be fixed for me right now, I tried it in two different browsers but I cannot upvote any comments in the election. Commented Jan 31, 2012 at 12:36
  • @Fabian It's working fine for me. Have you tried refreshing the page/clearing your cache?

  • I cleared the cache and restarted Chrome, I also tried it in Firefox and it still doesn't work. Commented Jan 31, 2012 at 14:53
  • @Jarrod Halp? (See Fabian's comments)

  • Yeah, it's not fixed for me either. FWIW: Firefox 9.0.1, Chrome, Amsterdam CDN datacenter.

  • There are still complaints on other sites which seems to imply that the issue remains. See meta.stackexchange.com/questions/120839/…, meta.askubuntu.com/questions/2420/… and meta.askubuntu.com/questions/2421/….

    The Amsterdam CDN node is having some issues and serving an older version of the file (ie, pre-bug-fix). We've contacted their support and hope this resolves soon. Commented Jan 31, 2012 at 16:46

I'm going to guess that the JavaScript totally broke down because:

Uncaught Error: getQuestionId could not find an id
