The user has been destroyed. Please note that you should not start a meta thread over single instances of spam. Just flag the posts as spam and the user will typically be automatically blocked and later cleaned up. If there's a need for the user to be destroyed for other reasons, just flag the post.

I clarified further with an additional edit. The post was locked for one hour because: This post has been locked due to the high amount of off-topic comments generated. For extended discussions, please use chat. which I did because there were over two dozen comments that continued to be off topic. I encourage you to read through this documentation in ...

Nice catch! For those who don't follow, this is what the rep section of your profile looks on SO (and MSO): Clicking on the link sends me here. Your results may vary. And this is what it looks like here (and all non-SO sites I checked including Super User): I have no idea why. This may be a good question to ask on MSO. It may even be a bug. At ...

Stack Exchange recently increased the value of upvotes on questions from 5 points to 10 points, and applied it retroactively. Last year you asked a question that earned 36 upvotes. At the time, those votes would have been worth 180 points of rep. After the change they are worth 360, which would have been enough to hit the daily rep cap of 200. Presumably ...

I've just reviewed the revision history and the 64 (!) deleted comments (the vast majority of them not constructive or worse), and I don't see anything "hostile" or "rather rude" from moderators. Actually, given the attitudes expressed in some of the comments, including publishing the coworker's real name, I think enderland showed great restraint. Locks ...

You need 600 votes on questions, with 25% or more of your votes on questions, not 600 total votes. See the explanation here.

Nothing was converted into a comment from an answer. The opposite happened, someone left a comment and that comment was then expanded into a non-accepted answer after being requested. Presumably there were comments that have since been deleted that Joe had left which became part of the answer there.

This is a core feature of the StackExchange network and this behaviour is intentional. In short, it's to eliminate "drive-by users" who might answer questions that have been protected for a good reason. These users will have an association bonus but no actual experience with the site where they're trying to bypass a question's protection. The ...

Comments can disappear at a moments notice, you should consider them transient. Anything that does not directly seek to improve the question can be wiped out. I myself don't go seeking comments to delete, typically comments are removed due to flagging by members of the community. If you have something permanent for the question edit the content into the ...

When a migrated question is closed on the target site, it is a "rejected migration". The question is locked, and automatically deleted after a period of time. If you think such a question can be salvaged, you can flag a mod to unlock it.

Thanks; this will be fixed in the next deploy. It looks like we changed the display from (3) to (3/5), but the javascript / regex at the client wasn't updated accordingly.

Ah, I missed this the first time - when an OP posts a self-answer, answers are sorted by votes even if it's accepted. Notice the OP in that case is actually the same user who wrote the accepted answer.

The question has in fact been protected; this happened around about 07:00 UTC on 2019-01-31. There is a network-wide bug which means that the protection status is not shown if (and only if) you do not have enough reputation (on the specific site) to answer the question. (Credit to Monica Cellio for finding that bug report). As you do not have 10 reputation ...

There are/were several bugs with the hat triggers, and unintended hats have been taken away. Exhibit 1: Hat Maintenance Note: I fixed a bug in the secret definition of Vexillologist, removed the hat from all users (since a good number who earned it should not have, based on a bug in the sql) and reawarded to all users who should earn it. Anyone who is ...

We do need the position:relative but I removed it on the mod & review pages. This way you won't have the bug anymore. A fix has been pushed, it'll be live after the next production build.

I've updated it to use the primarily opinion-based close reason.

This happens from time to time (more votes than views). The view count is not updated in true real-time; there is some caching. More of an explanation of how the view count works is available here.

It's fixed on the development server. Will be on live site after the next production build. Thanks for your feedback @jmac

The tag menu cutoff happens because the style sheet here on workplace.SE styles the #content element as overflow: hidden. Simply overriding that style with: #content { overflow: visible } is enough to fix it. (However, I'm a bit worried that the overflow: hidden style may have been added for a reason, possibly to fix some other unrelated problem ...

You clarified in a comment that you're talking about this post. I think (based on seeing those comments earlier) that Mister Positive deleted and then undeleted his comment -- not sure and the mod tools don't show that history, but it's possible that the deletion revoked the notification and the undeletion didn't restore it. When somebody comments on your ...

We have rolled out a consistent color scheme for suggested edit and flag indicators in global top bar. Flag will be orange and suggested edits be in dark maroon color background. This change will go out after the next production build.

This is fixed. It will be live after our next production build.

This was a bug. It somehow got turned off accidentally, but it should be working again now. Thanks for the report! Turns out this was an expensive thing to calculate; we need to do some optimizing before turning it back on.

This issue has been fixed, it will be live after our next production build

Questions with suggested edits show up that way: I approved the edit so you should also be able to edit now.

I agree with this. From earlier today: The only reason I could tell there was a link here was it looked like a question title. I read through the whole thing, then realised it looked kinda like a title of a question I'd read before, and did a double take: "wait, hold on, is that a link?". If it was just regular words I would flat out not have noticed the ...

Thanks for reporting. It's definitely a bug caused by new footer. Fix is waiting in repo for build. Consider it done.

I tried this and got the same result (Win10, Chrome). Additionally, when I Did something, the "No Action Needed" button blanked out and the "I'm Done" button appeared. After I clicked the button, it moved onto the next question. On the next question both buttons were blanked out initially (sorry, no screenshot). The "No Action Needed" button did reappear ...

I increased the color difference between visited and unvisited links, the change will occurs after the next production build.
