in reply to voting does update

Is it something that needs fixing? I can see it being useful if, after upvoting helpful responses, one wants to amend the OP (mark it as solved, for example). In that case, it's a single operation rather than two. But I struggle to see a situation where it might be a problem.

    In general unexpected behavior is dangerous.

    I'm aware that edge cases where people changed their posts and accidentally submitted them will be rare, but that's why I asked if it's hard to fix.

    I noticed it because I saw the wiki expansion happening after just voting, and if the monastery ever decides to have a "last updated" attribute this will be crucial.

    Separating forms would also spare bandwidth, but this is really just a minor argument.

    Checking the submitting button should be enough.

      Fixed. :-)

      I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
