It's not considering the @-reference as part of the comment. Not to mention that after clicking submit, the @-reference to Greg's username is going to be stripped out. Since you're commenting on his answer, explicitly referencing the OP is unnecessary as they will be notified of a new comment on their answer. While the gesture of thanking the user in words ...

If you add two spaces after a word and enter a line break/return, the markdown engine will insert a line break automagically. This disables the rewrapping that is designed into the editing system. So if you enter lines like this, they wrap. But if you double space, then they don't wrap. (click the history link to see my source) This is documented in the ...

This appears to be intentional. As of 1700 UTC October 8, the backlog queue has been reviewed. The site-wide change is being discussed in this answer/question: https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/267080/165931 I'd like to try raising the reputation for getting enqueued to the Late Answer reviews to 50 and reconsider upping it to 100 at some point in the ...

That was my fault. I removed an if check that was very important. It has been reverted.

This is as intended. As I've previously said (you've linked to the quote), once you've finished a mission, we will not revoke that mission again unless the mission has been accomplished by … less-than-fair means. The contest site has a (dev-only) list of those users who have accomplished a mission, but according to current stats would not qualify. I ...

As @balpha, the coder of the contest has said: Once a mission is completed, it won't be revoked automatically if the criteria aren't met anymore. We can revoke them manually, but we'll only do that if the mission was achieved only because of serial upvoting or similar issues, but not just because some downvote got you below the threshold again. Chances ...

This is the expected behavior with Markdown. As the Markdown spec states, List items may consist of multiple paragraphs. Each subsequent paragraph in a list item must be indented by either 4 spaces or one tab: This is a list item with two paragraphs. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Aliquam hendrerit mi posuere ...

This is status-bydesign. The association bonus is purposefully removed from the calculation used to determine if you have sufficient reputation to answer a protected question. To answer a protected question, you must earn 10 reputation specifically on this site, regardless of your reputation elsewhere on Stack Exchange. There's already a feature request on ...

I'd rather this were corrected in the uploading process as requested on MSO, but fixing this might be easier and let us pop the height in after the img tag rather than having to scroll past the image src to find the the insertion point for modifying the width or height of an inline image. Automatically resize high-resolution screenshots

I agree and I think we should follow the same practice that we use for iPhone and iOS. Thus we should have at a high level apple-watch for hardware and watchos for software. Also we should have break downs for watchOS so there should be watchos-1 and watchos-2, just like iOS. The only issue I see is that down-cased watchOS is a little hard to read. Also I ...

TL;DR: This will happen as a result of mostly unrelated cleanup efforts. To clarify our position here: there were no plans to make the redirect-only domains available over https://. They were never at any point in time supported, nor do we generate links to them - so all links in existence should be http://. Even if they were https://, they wouldn't get ...

This was part of a recent UI change to make flagging more obvious. As mentioned by Monica, this is an intentional change to make flagging more discoverable. We can all agree it definitely does that. This is a work in progress and we are working on some additional changes to improve the layout of comments. These changes will build on the changes we ...

Yes, people have been noticing this on all sites throughout the Stack Exchange network. There's a 'central' bug post on the Main Meta which has now been marked status-completed, meaning it should be resolved.

It's indeed possible to answer a question which is put on hold, if you're still on the question page. You'll get a banner "this question is now put on-hold" and this will disable the 'Submit' button, but it's relatively easy to re-enable it via the developer tools of the browser. The server will still accept new answers for a few hours or so. See also this ...

I’ve had a quick look and it seems you’ve effectively (though unintentionally) created two accounts on Ask Different. I suspect when you first visited the site to ask your first question you created an unregistered account and then when you came back to ask the other question you ended up completing your registration which carried over an association bonus ...

Thanks for troubleshooting this! It's fixed now. Thanks to Sairam for diagnosing the problem so well so we could fix it quickly.

I'm using Firefox 22.0 on my Mac and I can confirm this defect. It's also an issue with Firefox on Windows. FWIW, I've also seen this behavior with previous versions of the browser. And yet: I've only witnessed this defect at Ask Different. I'm a moderator at the Personal Finance & Money Stack Exchange and spend enough time there and I've never seen ...

This looks like a bug between the Javascript in use on StackExchange and Firefox (22.0). When I write: http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/87982 within a new Firefox window I see it is immediatly rewritten as: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/59917/how-do-you-get-system-diagnostic-files-from-os-x/87982#87982 And the debugger of Firefox tells me that ...

I agree the proofreading there is non-standard. Let's see what the site developers think...

Thanks for reporting this, it was a false positive in the method that removes greetings from the beginning of the post. I see you've already found a workaround for this issue. Anyway, fix is rolling out with build rev 2014.1.13.1297.

Posts highlighted in red have been deleted. Posts not highlighted are still visible to ordinary users on the site.

There used to be an issue where, if your account had no activity in any badge, and you opened the tag badge selector, your tag badge tracker would become hidden and you couldn't select a new tag badge. This is apparently what happened to your profile. I've reset the tracker for your profile so you can select a tag badge now.

Protected questions require 10 reputation to have been earned on the site itself, thus this is status-bydesign. The 100 reputation association bonus is purposefully removed from the calculation used to determine if you have sufficient reputation to answer a protected question, and as such you have 6 reputation which is below the 10 threshold. If you found ...

The rep you earned linking your SE account doesn't count, unfortunately. You need to earn 10 rep points on Ask Different organically to be able to answer that question. You can get those points through voting, answering non-protected questions, asking questions, editing posts, etc.

Found the answer after a couple of minutes... This issue was caused by the following TamperMonkey script: https://github.com/shu8/Stack-Overflow-Optional-Features Disabling this in TamperMonkey made the site work again. The version in question is 1.8DEV, which seems to be the latest version. I've disabled this script now and everything is working again.

Seems to work ok for me Can you add a screenshot, browser used, macOS/iOS version etc? Also, do you have any AdBlockers or similar activated?

Those are social links, which means they’ll be blocked if you have a content blocker or extension blocking links to those places. For example, Fanboy’s Social Blocking List from EasyList contains the following, which will remove the sharing links for Google+, Facebook and Twitter. EasyList is built into AdBlock, uBlock Origin and more, with this particular ...

The bounty grace period for that question started on Jan 14 at 8:17, which was exactly 7 days after it started. You were emailed about the grace period being active on Jan 15 at 0:00 (which is the scheduled task that looks for bounties in grace period mode and emails all users about it). The bounty was formally removed due to an expired grace period on Jan ...

Well, uh. This is only mildly embarrassing. Three years, two lines of CSS, one bug fixed!
