Duplicate posts in a thread - Why?

Does anyone else notice that in some threads some posts (not all) are listed twice as two distinct posts (post count goes up) in that thread? It's as if the Reply button was clicked twice but I don't think you can do that.

Nope, double clicked as quickly as I could and it didn't do it.

That's the extent of my computer skills. I tried again on the last post, will on this one too, last time I did preview first still didn't double post.

Well I did say "some posts" in "some threads".  These things never reproduce when you want them to! Man Frustrated  Next time I see a thread with this I'll post the link to it here.

 

Thanks for trying though.

 

Update:

Well that didn't take long.  Here's a current thread that illustrates what I am talking about.  Look at posts 6 and 7.

Hey @_xyzzy_,

 

i noticed that that same thing during our recent Knowledge Sharing session but thought it might have been something that particular user was doing. Our dev folk were given a heads up and I'll forward the example you provided (thanks for that) for them to research with.

 

thanks!

Dave

@davidbk: Sounds good to me.  Thanks for confirming and reporting to the appropriate folks.  I've been seeing this for some time but IMO there was no decent/appropriate place to ask about this until now.   I'll add a few additional thread links as I encounter them in case the dev folks can determine some pattern to this behavior.

And finally, two more: this (posts 8 and 9), this (posts 5 and 6)

 

That should be enough examples.  No more needed.

Ok, one more distinctive one just today,  This one has the dubious honor of being a thread with two sets of duplicates (3 and 4, 8 and 9).  Same poster.  I wonder if it's somehow related to the the user doing the posting.

 

@spoom2: I don't see any duplicates in the 3-post thread you referenced.

@_xyzzy_don't know what to tell ya.  I looked at another that I know had 3 of the same post and now there's only the one.

Ok.   Then I'm at a loss to understand under what circumstances these dups occur or disappear.  I hope the ones I referenced still have their dups when (or is it if?) the maintainers of this problem look into it.

The ones you referenced are still there. I just went through several topics from the past few days that I'd read and found no duplicates in any of them, however like you I had been seeing quite a few, of course I'm not positive of which exact ones. Except for the link I posted and the one that had 3 which I had noticed after your post and that why it caught my eye.  I could have easily copied the wrong link, but don't think I did and the one with 3 I'll keep search for just in case I wrote down the wrong topic.

Yes, I've seen a "triples" every now and then.  But they are more rare than the dups.

Here's one with three

 

EDIT: After posting I checked the link to verify it's to the right topic and it is.  So if this one disappears at least I'll know I'm not totally nuts. Smiley Frustrated
