    I managed to vote and not have the same problem. Unfortunately, as a person can only vote once, it is difficult to bug hunt.

    Are you able to provide any additional information that might help us track the problem down? What else on the site were you doing at the same time? How long did you stay on the Poll site for?

      Seriously? Janrinock's naivete/sarcasm never ceases to amaze!

        My response was neither naive nor sarcastic.

        The message is the result of a 'reskey' (resource key) becoming invalid. The reason the key became invalid is unknown and the conditions surrounding it cannot be reproduced. It might have been inactive for too long, the IP address might have changed during the action, or there might have been a different cause altogether.

        As we have pointed out to you, some of the software you too are using appears to be misconfigured and is compromising your identity - something we feel that you might think is important. You seem to be unable to fix your own problems and I do not think that your advice is worth much. Matthew 7:5.

          Seems to be many issues with permissions, and allowances, and abilities. Shirley nothing to do with janrinok's vendetta against several ex-soylentils that are not to be named? Well, as long at the pogrom continues, I am not longer going to post.

              Looks like, true to his word, zatoichi never posted again. That, or janrinok banned him/her.

          Yet you've accused at least one non-ari person of being ari numerous times. Either you are lying to troll the troll or you are too lazy to verify identities before throwing accusations. All bad looks for a staffer.

        A developer has stated why an issue is difficult to resolve. Perhaps you should try finding bugs in code and fixing them when the problem is hard to reproduce.

        Maybe we need a poll on how many people here can actually program. There seems to be a minority here who just do not understand the basics.

      I voted, the results appeared with the offending text at the top. I copied it and pasted into a comment and went on my merry way. No further problems encountered. Probably not worth worrying about if it was only me.

      I encountered the same message at the first attempt of voting, but I had forgotten to log in first. The second attempt (after logging in) worked fine.

      My first voting attempt was within a minute of loading the original page, so there shouldn't have been a delay issue. It was probably due to trying to vote as AC in my case.

    Having done some limited investigation I can reproduce a similar fault for about half of the time. It seems to be linked to private tabs on FF and Brave browsers - but I am still not certain of the exact mechanism. If you use an newly opened private tab for voting it is possible that there is no reskey value transferred to/from that private tab - which it can be argued is exactly the function of private tabs. Hence at some point you can be using a tab that doesn't have a reskey.

    However, this doesn't happen every time so I am looking at other actions that might be taking place simultaneously.

    Can you tell me which browser you use, please?

      Firefox - and it's not outside the realms of possibility that I was using a private tab at the time.

      My experience (see above) was also with Firefox, though in my case it was not a private tab: just trying to vote before logging in!
