Bug? Can't give rep to deal OP but can to OP in comment

I have been able to give rep's in the new system. And I know there is a limit per day.

Today, I cannot rep the OP of a deal. But I can rep the OP in the deal thread when the OP makes a comment.

When I use the dropdown menu (arrow) next to the OP and click "Give Rep", a transparent gray screen takes over the screen. If I click anywhere, the gray screen goes away (like when I try to click on the Add to Reputation blue button or try to type in the field for "Your comments on this post:". I know the rep did NOT register - the rep number did not change and also from looking at the OP/user's profile.

Here is what the gray screen looks like. Logout of Slickdeals. Stay on Slickdeals. Click on the Log In blue button on the top right - this throws a transparent gray screen over the page contents and pops up the "Welcome to Slickdeals" window to log in.

So, I think it is a "focus" problem for the user controls (e.g. mouseover, et al) that your programmers need to fix.

I only noticed this problem today, I was able to rep a few days ago. This bug maybe cropped up with the addition of number of posts next to the OP/user, in addition to the usual reputation stat - a change I noticed an hour ago today (along with adding the number of posts to commenters).

I was able to give the OP rep in a COMMENT further down in the thread. Then when I went back to try to give rep to the deal OP again, the gray screen did NOT pop up - I got the usual "You must spread some reputation points around...".

EDIT: Just want to add I tested this in several deal threads, current and expired, before posting this.

Bug stick exists in Redesign View.

Initial workaround was to see if OP had a comment in deal thread and rep the comment.

Workaround now is to switch to Classic View - can rep deal OP there.
PITA to switch between views for this bug, though.

I was coming to follow up but I see Schooby already has High Five

I'm glad you like redesign view! Hopefully now you won't have to switch back and forth! Smilie
