This update attempts to fix a recurring issue where voting would fail on some server instances.

Once a server instance begins to decline votes, it will not recover until rebooted.

There's a belief that the issue only impacts communities.win, but this isn't true. It impacts all sites, but it's more noticeable because communities.win runs on its own servers, separate from the rest of the sites, because it's typically the first site to receive and test software updates. This means it has a far smaller pool of servers than the rest of the sites, and of course two broken servers are far more noticeable in a cluster of two servers, than in a cluster of fifteen servers.

Version 1.4.6.1
