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

  • 3
    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

  • @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

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.
