I've posted a banner Steve Jobs passed away on October 5th, 2011. Rest in peace. I'm open to suggestions on the wording/links.

Yes. This makes sense to me. The answer to the vast majority of these questions has been: contact the developer.

We DO! (We being the employees of Stack Exchange) After this question was asked, we were able to find and acquire the twitter handle @askdifferent! From now on, we will be using @askdifferent instead of @stackapple, so remember that if you want to @ reply or mention us. Psst - if you don't follow @askdifferent already, feel free to do so :-)

We have plans to update all the icons for SE sites to retina at some point. It will be a lengthy process. We're still deciding on which icons have higher priority. The obvious ones are the logo and voting arrows/favstar.

I favor to exclude CW posts from the mountainlionchallengeTM as it distorts the results. On Ask Different posts are made community wikis mostly because: multiple people worked on an answer but only one get's the votes collect gems which Apple hides in their software Excluding CW posts will encourage communal editing to provide the best answers and hints ...

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

The new topbar has been rolled out today to Meta Stack Exchange, and a few moments ago to ♦ moderators on the entire network as well. This is how it looks like for me, and is going to look for you all as well (except for the diamond on the right): You can see that the height of the bright rainbow has been reduced to a familiar level. To disable the ...

Thank you for making this entirely raffle-based. That, combined with the higher (10-score) bar for quality should produce better results than the last contest.

"questions about the particulars of specific games to be off-topic " That hits the nail on the head for me. CoC had a few days of irritation, due to server issues, but in the relatively short time I've been here, it's the only game that seems to crop up as a taggable one. The rest don't seem to generate questions here. So, blanket ban on games questions ...

This feature has been added under the votes tab. If you go to your profile page, and click "votes", then "closure", you can see the close votes you've cast. The URL will look something like this, but it will only work for your profile: http://apple.stackexchange.com/users/7833/daviesgeek?tab=votes&sort=closure

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 ...

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.

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

status-completed

Your point is taken! I completely agree with your assessment. I think this is a change that should be made (and can certainly be, very easily). Keep an eye out for it.

I'm writing a Blog Post (one that I always intended to write), and it's going to be more than 750 Characters - is this OK? It's not massively over, it will be approaching a thousand words.

It's also listed as Apple in the migration statistics section of the 10k tools on other sites. Makes it difficult to find when searching for Ask Different. Especially given the fact that Ask Ubuntu is the proper name of the Ubuntu site... On the reputation leagues site, it also appears as Apple.


3

Yes, you can. There are three different ways to do it. Method #1 Earn 10,000 reputation Click the "review" tab. Click the "close" subtab There you will see all the posts with recent close votes, including those you cast. Method #2 Win an election as moderator. Click the "review" tab. Click the "close" subtab Method #3 When you cast a close vote, ...

The fix is live. Please hard refresh.

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


3

Well, we should have a chat room event for a start, a place to hang out and share useful livestreams and other info etc, maybe open it early and let people rip with the rumours in a controlled space ;)


3

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.


3

That follows what we've done for other OS names. Tag Synonym osx-mavericks -> mavericks was approved!

I have darkened the bar's background color some. the change will go out after the next production build.

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.

I've updated my stylesheet for a better top bar based on the Stack Overflow bar (which I released previously). This stylesheet rearranges the items to the correct order as they were previously, and also integrates the navigation into the top bar like Stack Overflow. All this is achieved purely with CSS so there's no JavaScript overhead. You can find the ...


2

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


2

So... nothing quite like a site design refresh 3+ years later to fix outstanding issues... :)


2

Solved with the design update.

Not sure when this happened (didn't seem to be specifically documented) but it did happen (at least before December 2013):
