    I feel bad for the chap I just up voted and then undid about 4 times to see all the animations. – James Mertz Apr 1 '11 at 0:00
  • @KronoS I always get the same animation :( – AndrejaKo Apr 1 '11 at 0:02

  • how come I don't see any animations? – rzlines Apr 3 '11 at 10:46
  • @rzlines It appears that they have been removed in the meantime. – AndrejaKo Apr 3 '11 at 11:50

We have a rendering bug on some of our sites (around the voting controls) that we can't fix (our designer has to do that, but he's on vacation, making a "bacon kinds of the world" hike), so we decided to cover the glitch up.

  • So, it's a cover-up? :) Anyway, that explains the problem. I'll accept this answer as soon as dancing unicorns let me. – AndrejaKo Mar 31 '11 at 23:44
