manj_k’s answer is correct but it also misses out a vital bit of information: the coding that highlight’s the () or activates the ∧ is far from bulletproof; it is sometimes OFF when it should be ON.
I tested this myself: a Q that had an obviously-correct A did not have any A selected. It was from 3 years ago, so I selected the correct A (then the was lit). But here is the point:- I accessed the Q from a listing page. In that listing page the Q showed that an A was already selected. However, when I got to the actual Q the only A on the page was–apparently–NOT selected. Checking the record, ask.libo had first de-selected the Answer then Re-selected the same Answer.
So, a credible scenario for what is happening:
shake0 (lactea’s Questioner) clicks on lactea’s Answer [+15 Karma points]
- At some later point shake0 looks again at the page & lactea’s Answer appears to be no-longer selected.
shake0 clicks on the again
(the system de-selects the Answer [-5 Karma points])
(then the system immediately re-selects the Answer [+15 Karma points])
- Again shake0 comes back to the page (perhaps immediately) & again goes through exactly the same process
(another -5 then +15 Karma points)
- Perhaps the page still looks wrong, but shake0 now leaves in disgust.
Here is the tick:- (yes, I awarded myself the correct Answer!). However, you will not find the URL anywhere within the source:
(https://ask.libreoffice.org/m/default/media/images/vote-accepted-on.png). It is coded & can accept a parameter as a URL.
The coding is flaky and sometimes goes bad, making it appear to be switched OFF when in fact it is ON. Hence the strange extra Karma.
The Karma awarded today has changed from before. Now, if switched from ON to OFF the identical amount is removed as added (boo, hiss).
If this helps then please tick the answer ()
…and/or show you like it with an uptick (∧)
