Upvotes (and downvotes) on comments are not counting...

I do not know how long it has been going on but I suspect at least more than just today as I noticed what I thought was my vote being cancelled out earlier (yesterday I believe), but for sure I noticed tonight if I upvote something and hit refresh it shows the green of an upvote (or the red of a downvote) but the number is the same as before I voted. If I remove my vote the count goes down but upon refresh it returns to the amount it was before any voting.

Before voting:

After voting and after a refresh:

If I remove my votes the number goes to -1 but then back to zero (as in the first screenshot) upon a refresh.

I do not want to be wasting my time... :(

I have tried this with comments on several threads now, both up and downvoting and my votes count for nada after a refresh despite still showing as green or red.

Well, this is weird. The thread says that there are 9 comments but I only see 4. Two I know were there last night are missing, one that I responded to and my response to it. I do have the push emails for at least 7 of the comments though (I did not vote you down "abk4tn7"), but I do not have a copy of my own comment that disappeared. :(

So, I guess this is one of the other bugs?

Same here. And again, this is not the first time when a part of the comments in a thread are missing. It happened a couple of times in the past.

It happens to me as well, occasionally.

I've been in this situation for about eight months now. Very frustrating.

Eight months?! That must be very, very frustrating. I would stop reading the discussions if I could not reward somehow (I guess DL has me trained =D).

Did you file any reports, get any answers?

I filed one report, got back the standard (non) answer. I do read on here that we should not "bug" them with double reports, but I think I'm going to.

Can confirm. Just played for a bit with upvoting/downvoting your comment and refreshing the page and it goes as you state in your post. Win10, Firefox 61.0 (64bit).

Já agora: bom gosto na escolha do avatar :D

Edit: just a few seconds later it started working as it should...

Thanks for the confirmation. I am on a Mac so it is a cross-platform issue.

Obrigado! I am very happy with it. :)

Actually, I like your moniker too. There must be at least 526,880 Nunos in Portugal (but only in Portugal...). :D

Somewhere in the Duo blogs I read that parts of the forums are hosted on different servers, so that the information about the counter can differ for like one or two days after someone clicked the up- or downvote button. I can be wrong about this, though....

Well, that could explain it. :)

I have not been having any problems lately, but maybe the issues I was having before were mainly with older discussions.
