Theres been some new changes to the way the vote to close system works. Rather than showing just the total close votes like before as a whole number it shows it as (x/5) where x is the amount of votes.

The issue i just noticed is this, i went to a question and it was 3/5 i added my vote and instead of diaplaying 4/5 it displayed (3/5)(4/5), i had to refresh the page to get it to display just (4/5). (screen shot on the way)

Its nothing major, just something i noticed

Double Vote

Edit: Note, not an isolated incident, easily repeatable

    kinda embarrassed to say it took 3 clicks for me to click on the right "edit" link to mark this as completed... even the giant red boxes wasn't enough for my poor brain to twig Mar 14 '13 at 12:11

  • @MarcGravell also, just so youre aware, it also does this with re-open votes too

  • I think the same block of code handles all of them Mar 14 '13 at 17:39

Thanks; this will be fixed in the next deploy. It looks like we changed the display from (3) to (3/5), but the javascript / regex at the client wasn't updated accordingly.
