    Okay, I'm curious about something I hadn't seen before.

    Some of the comments in this thread, including the one I'm replying to, do not have a Moderation dropdown box nor button available, tho I still have mod points.

    At first I thought it only applied to posts already at -1 Spam, but then I noticed a couple of yours also with no mod dropdown available and no moderate button, as if I were out of points (I have three at the moment, or so it tells me).

    Can you tell me which comments you are missing the moderation drop down box please?

      A lot.

      Not missing from yours I'm now replying to.

      Missing from every comment above
      https://soylentnews.org/comments.pl?noupdate=1&sid=57906&page=1&cid=1329380#commentwrap [soylentnews.org]
      (earlier I wound up reading the -1 because they were so funny, and that's where I noticed it missing)

      and every comment below
      https://soylentnews.org/comments.pl?noupdate=1&sid=57906&page=1&cid=1326591#commentwrap [soylentnews.org]

      However from
      https://soylentnews.org/comments.pl?noupdate=1&sid=57906&page=1&cid=1329378#commentwrap [soylentnews.org]
      to
      https://soylentnews.org/comments.pl?noupdate=1&sid=57906&page=1&cid=1329384#commentwrap [soylentnews.org]
      all have mod boxes and buttons.

      But I won't swear it's the same ones missing as earlier.

        Nobody else seems to have reported the problem and I can see them all, so it sounds as if it might be something specific to your account. I have checked your settings and there doesn't appear to be anything unusual about them. I will have to dig a bit deeper....

        Please let me know if it repeats on other stories.

          Yeah, and I haven't changed anything here in ages.

          Well, I'll keep an eye out... so far this is the only page where I've seen it, so I'm thinking it's specific to this discussion, and to the spate of you-know-who. Maybe something in the function of restricting comments to logged-in users?

      PS. Only missing on this page. Not seeing the problem on other random pages (just looked again).

      Maybe Ari took them. :D

        Are you sure that you haven't already moderated on the comments that the option is missing? You can only moderate a comment once.

          Nope. After I moderate, the mod dropdown and button always remains visible. (Maybe it only disappears with JS active?)

          If I try to moderate a comment a second time (having forgot I did already), it just reloads the page and nothing changes.

          Previously, the only comments where I saw no mod boxen were my own.

          I've never seen today's weirdness before.
