I think what happened here is that there was already a suggested edit pending on that post when you reviewed it. The timeline looks like (all UTC): 18:57 - Suggested edit is proposed. 19:09 - You review the post and try to edit it 19:12 - Suggested edit is reviewed and processed During that window between 18:57 and 19:12, you would be unable to suggest an ...

I use Arch Linux, and have instaled ttf-google-fonts-git. Roboto has always been a part of the package. But the site still looks awful on my computer. When I was typing this as a comment, I couldn't see what I'm typing well enough. Though I can see this just fine when typing in the Answer section. If you must use Roboto, please use Roboto-Medium or Roboto-...

I think I've figured it out, but I'd like some confirmation from Team Stack Overflow if possible. Of the five deleted answers: one is from a fairly high-reputation user one is from a user who got the association bonus and so has 101 reputation points one is from a destroyed user account leaving two from low-reputation (10 or less) users So that would seem ...

The +100 rep association bonus is not counted in the protection algorithm. The post notice states (emphasis added): To answer it, you must have earned at least 10 reputation on this site. and the "on this site" part is actually quite literal, though not entirely clear. Therefore, looking at your rep history, you've got +100 for the association bonus and +...

From your screenshot, it looks like you've hit the font selection problem with the Roboto font. If you install Roboto under Linux, then when a site or program asks for Roboto, it gets "Roboto Medium" (which is quite heavyweight) instead of "Roboto Regular" (which looks normal). This is a problem with how the weights are set in the font files. This site has ...

Not a real answer to this, but I've experienced this font issue in at least 3 of my Windows 10 laptops/PCs. Things common to all those PCs, if I remember correctly, were: Windows 10, drivers, Chrome, and all software up to date. Copy of Roboto font family (downloaded directly from Google) installed locally. Font issue was noticeable not just on Android SE,...

It seems like you are unable to reach http://stack.imgur.com/ where most images on the SX network are hosted. The images work for me. Maybe your network admistrator has blocked imgur.com for some reason.

This is by design. A protected question can only be unprotected by the original user who protected it, or a moderator.

One of the points explained in How does accept rate work? appears to apply here: The accept rate is calculated on questions that are older than 3 days. The question in question is not old enough to be counted toward your accept rate yet - it's less than an hour old. In addition, even if the question was 3 days old, that answer is relatively new. ...

This will be fixed in the next build, which should be in the next 8 hours.

We already discussed that in chat a few days ago. While having no definite answer, our "guessed conclusions" are: it's the number of overall items in queue probably for reasons of cost, the ones irrelevant to the user are not filtered out No idea what should have led to the current situation. While some of us observed something similar in the past (most ...

The automated deleter is already very lenient, and only deletes questions which contain content that our contributors have shown aren't useful or relevant to the site. Both of the questions you link have a score of -1. Of the roughly 1000 people who saw each question, nobody thought they were "useful and clear", but at least one person thought they were "...

I've restored the previous style. Given that it is shared across all sites, I did not make an exception here. Perhaps in the future.


4

Good catch. Not sure where that come from, but I'm pushing a fix now. It should be resolved in our next production build.

Yup, not sure how I screwed up those href attributes. It's fixed now, thanks.

The 5k privilege mark is kind of a weird privilege, because you can vote on tag wiki edits made by others, but yours still need approval, which seems rather bizarre. The reason the pending edits don't appear is because you cannot approve your own. AFAIK, you have to hit 20k "Trusted User" status in order to edit tag wikis without approval: What are ...

This is fixed and should be pushed out in the next deployment.

I was the person who rejected those, though from memory you had a queue of about 20 suggested edits on that morning and I'm pretty sure I approved at least half of them. It stuck in my mind because that was an awful lot of edit suggestions from one person, and some of them were very long. I'm sorry if I caused any offence by this, one reason I didn't pick ...

Edit: Fixed! See the new answer on the below Meta post. It's because he has 1 rep temporarily: Bug in 'Late Answers' Review Tab I think this is an unintended sideffect? Or at least a confusing way to have this work.

It might save you some time spent writing these posts if you search the big parent Meta site, https://meta.stackoverflow.com/. Questions there tagged "FAQ" may be particularly useful, e.g., How do comment @replies work? That should cover this :)

This is a visual issue effecting an unsupported browser (12.17 was released in April 2014, over a year ago - only to fix the heartbleed issue, so the actual rendering engine has not been updated for longer than that). As such, we will not be fixing it - we need to dedicate our time to items of high impact. This issue effects a very small number of users who ...

I can't discuss this in isolation as this would further the controversy. I need to consider your first revision and sketch out the issues here with that and further revisions. Here's revision 1: Title: How do I disinfect my infected Android device (phone) with adware malware that simple steps failed to remove? And what should I AVOID trying? ...

Adding the tag to your favourites doesn't actually create the tag, so it doesn't matter whether you have enough reputation or not. It just adds that tag name to a list in your profile. If a tag is subsequently created with that name, the tag will be in your favourites; until then, it has no effect. If there's an error here, it's only that the behaviour is a ...

Somehow I was on the 'active bounty' thing. "There are no questions with an active bounty at the moment. Perhaps you'd like to select a different tab?" Should the URL give some clue?

Like so many other things on Stack Exchange (especially badges) I expect that hats are not awarded instantly, but rather there's a scheduled process that runs to find new hats to award. You'll probably get it in the next few hours, assuming that there's not some other criteria that needs to be met.

It looks like the votes tab only shows details for votes to questions and answers still in existance. That is, deleted questions/answers are removed from the votes tab and also change the tally on that page. However, the Stack Exchange database still keeps track of your votes on deleted items and counts that toward the total votes needed for a badge. It ...

It appears to be fixed (can somebody else confirm?): I see what you did there, you crafty, crafty devs -- you scrambled to fix it silently without ever adding it to the bug database, in the hopes that nobody would notice. Well, guess what -- we're still on to you! :-) Edit: Looks like this has been complained about on MSO too.

I can't repro. are you saying that you can't see #f6f6f6 bgcolor?

Sorry for the late answer. There should be a notification when the question is closed (at the same time that the submit button is disabled). I assume the following is what happened: Roughly around the time you posted this, we revamped our notification system, and during this time, there was a bug which caused the notifications (like the "the question has ...

I am unable to reproduce that behaviour. You can visit the Network Login Troubleshooting to check for the availability of certain necessary features in your browser in order to have the network wide auto-login functioning properly. This may also apply to your issue.
