User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030804 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030804 I recently became the "proud owner" of having 12 votes in the Browser product. I'd voted for 10 Browser bugs (my maximum) but had two of my other voted bugs change product to Browser. I then discovered that I now actually have 12 votes against Browser products (over the maximum) when I went to "un-vote" for one of the bugs that had been resolved FIXED. I can't stop voting for it, however, because Bugzilla won't let me keep the (then) existing 11 votes which would be over the limit. It wasn't my fault that the products changed on me. In one sense, this is a loophole in the system, and I could look at it as being privileged to currently enjoy having more votes than I should be allowed. But, in another sense, my thinking is that having this kind of automatic change happen to me is almost like a bait and switch tactic because I can't now clean up my votes properly without being penalized for doing so (by losing a vote that I previously enjoyed). Bugzilla should only be checking the vote limit when you try to *add* a vote, not when you try to *remove* one. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Because of the way process_bug.cgi and Bug::RemoveVotes actually work, Bugzilla *has* to check the total number of votes even when you remove votes. What happened to you will soon not be possible anymore, see bug 34172. Your exceeding votes will automatically be removed.

I don't actually think that a WONTFIX is a valid resolution. More appropriately, bug 34172 should be set as blocking this one, and this one FIXED when that one is FIXED. Although, I suppose a WONTFIX is appropriate for the actual Summary, the intent of the bug is that I don't want the system to leave me in a state where I can't change my votes. Once bug 34172 is fixed, that won't be the case any more and I'll be able to reassign as I wish.
Status: RESOLVED → REOPENED
Resolution: WONTFIX → ---
Summary: Vote count should only be checked when adding a bug, not removing one. → Automated product change causing exceeded vote count prevents subsequent user vote change.
This summary is much better! ;) I'll mark this bug as fixed together with bug 34172.
