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