Unable to approve #11116576

I've been unable to approve "[OT] Am I just a bad programmer?" [#11116576] — I tried a few times. The same problem was noted by davies: see the update to his "Re: [OT] Am I just a bad programmer?" response.

Looking at the moderation and janitation histories, two things happened at the same time ("2020-05-08 21:42" in my timezone):

  • The post was moved from SOPW to Meditations.
  • The post was approved (apparently in SOPW section).

We've previously seen this situation where a move and a subsequent approval were registered in the database out of order. I suspect this node is approved in SOPW so further attempts to approve it are ignored; however, as it's actually in Meditations, it's showing as unapproved in that section.

In the past, this has needed senior moderator intervention to fix. I've no idea of the exact cabal/level/other requirements.

    Thank you for reporting this!

    The node had been approved while it was a SoPW, and moved to Meditations after that. Once a node has been approved into one section, it can't be approved into any other section.

    Removing the wrong approval made the node re-approvable.
