Hi @nas5w . Thanks for writing this article. Great use of the useEffect cleaner.

I think another way to resolve this issue is to keep the buttons disabled until the promise is resolved or rejected. This will make for a less confusing UX. User will not be able to click the conflicting buttons to being with.

Thanks! I think in this example, however, you wouldn’t want to prevent someone from navigating to another user’s profile just because a fetch request hasn’t returned. The user should be able to freely navigate the application regardless of whether the fetch request has resolved.
