I voted on the answer, not on the question. or does starring count as voting?


No, that means you voted and then un-voted. So you voted up or down and then cancelled the vote.

  • maybe my mind plays tricks on me but i only upvoted. maybe the 2nd time i visited that page the upvote was not visible, so i clicked a 2nd time. i tried it on another post again, as soon as i unvote, the error message appears, but then my original vote disappears as well.

  • reloading brings back the original vote.

  • @akira - did you use the browser's "back" button to return to the page? If so, unless you've reloaded the page via f5 it doesn't show the results of the AJAX.
