Unable to Approve #11110824

I've been trying to approve "Old Programmer New To Perl" (#11110824) without success. The "Approve" box can be checked but, when the "moderate" button is clicked, the "Approve" box just becomes unchecked.

I successfully upvoted the OP but was still unable to "Approve".

    Hi Ken,

    If you click thru the janitation/moderation history in the "Approval Nodelet" , you'll see a lot of activity, especially from the gods.

    Problem seems to be related to moving it to another section AFTER it was already approved.

    This happens sometimes, there is always some loss... ;)

      G'day Rolf,

      Thanks for the explanation. ++ when the Vote Fairy next visits.

      I looked at that history and it certainly has bounced around between sections and approval states. I'll try to keep that in mind if this sort of thing happens in the future: I'd still report approval failure but could possibly add a suggested reason.

      Anyway, it's now in Meditations; Approved; and, Front-paged. All good. :-)

    Just speculation, but this may have something to do with the node's impending/recent move to Meditations. You may have caught it when it was in Limbo.

      G'day AnomalousMonk,

      Thanks for the feedback — your speculation seems perfectly reasonable.

      LanX provided additional information re janitation and moderation history. As I've already commented on that, I won't repeat myself here; although, they would equally apply.
