Just wanted to let you know that i came across an issue with the points for answering a questions when the the ajax post fails.
I was attempting to submit an answer to a question and i got the 'We tried 3 times but it failed' message. I tried a couple more times then went for lunch and tried a couple more. It finally posted but i noticed i received like 200 points for all the times it tried to submit the answer. I don't mind the extra points but i just thought i would bring the issue to your attention.
Don't comment your code - it was hard to write, it should be hard to read!
Earlier at the home page it displays Article/Blog/Tips needs approval. now I dont see those from the past 2-3 days. thought there isnt any article/blog. but not sure was it me or anyone having this issue in recent?
Is there any update on the system which restricts the view?
The status on this has definitely changed. Bob says I have over 500 points in the last 12 hours never mind the last 24 which is clearly ridiculous. However it's no longer making a dent in the Q&A 24 hour top list, so perhaps now that list at least is counting correctly?
OK Scratch that it's not a fix in progress but another bug I just bounced back up the board in one go from nowhere. It now lists 565 which is about what I estimate from the points table for the last 12 hours so it could just be an artifact of the algorithm. Best forget it until the main issue is fixed.

Every time I post a solution in Q&A I get the response: We have tried to add your answer 3 times without success. Our servers are just a little overworked. Sorry.. However, if I refresh the page, or load it from a different browser tab, the post appears to have been successful. If I use the question or comment link, it works fine.
