I have been reading about the recent KudoZ problems, and like many of you, I have been experiencing frustrations with pages taking ages to load etc.

This morning however, a new bug surfaced that I hadn\'t come across before. I received a bunch of \"Congratulations!\" and \"Answer selected\" e-mails for the same question! Two of the Congrats messages said that I\'d earned 2 points and the other said I had got 1. Then there were four \"Answer selected\" messages, which were identical.

I checked the question, and in fact no answer has yet been chosen. To date my answer is the only one there (with lots of \"agrees\"). It was in the French-English pair.

Other \"Congratulations!\" and \"Answer selected\" messages (in Spanish-English and French-English) were all in order. It was just this one question that I got all these \"phantom\" messages for.

Has anyone else received \"Congratulations!\" and/or \"Answer selected\" messages for questions where no answer has yet been chosen?

It is only today that I have noticed this problem. Never had it happen before, so it must be a new bug, but probably related to the other problems that the ProZ database server seems to be having at the moment.

Best Regards
