I'm quite sure all these various places you list source their text from one and the same generic site description sentence (as also used for e.g. migration notices). However, this can only be changed by SE employees. But this little capitalization issue has indeed been a thorn in my eye for quite a while, too. I agree it should either be properly ...

It's a). I believe it works like this: People with the close-vote privilege (like Jenayah) see the full closed banner, with the close reason and the list of close-voters. The OP also sees this regardless of their reputation. People who don't have the close-vote privilege (like yourself) only see the generic message in your screenshot. This change was made ...

I only see 9555: I think I see your confusion. When you go to the Questions page it'll show a number rounded up from the actual count:

It's because you didn't fulfill the second requirement yet Asked a well-received question on 5 separate days, and maintained a positive question record And you have 1 deleted question with bad score, so you didn't maintain a positive question record yet. This confusion happen a lot, refer below mentioned main meta for details: Why I haven't I received ...

Thanks for reporting. Fix is waiting in repo and should be live in couple hours.

According to this related answer on Meta Stack Exchange the reputation gained from the votes on a deleted post is not removed if it's at least 60 days old and has a score of at least 3. Reputation changes from bounties, votes (both up and down), and acceptances on deleted posts (including answers to a deleted question) are nullified. (Exception: ...

Thanks, fixed now. The movies.se theme has extra styling for buttons in the bottom area, and those extra styles were incorrectly applied here as well.

The badge has a very simple algorithm. As quoted by Jeff Atwood: You'll get the yearling badge as long as you have at least (Years * 200) rep by the target date. Details on how the Yearling badge works They don't actually check that the 200 reputation was gained in separate years. Since your recent answer has gathered a lot of reputation in the last ...

Well... better late than never, eh? The sidebar on the Ask Question page should have the correct capitalization now. I've also updated the audience description and you can verify it in the site switcher. The list of sites on stackexchange.com will catch up in a few days. Apologies for the long delay and thanks for the report!

All sounds good; fixed in code - available after the next deploy (when the "rev" at the bottom of the screen is higher than "2016.3.23.3373")

To not only complain about all the things but contribute to an actual solution of the problems, I made a few small changes to the base image that might already improve it to a large degree. I would allow and encourage the actual SE designers to use them if they deem them appropriate and time issues don't allow for a redesign of the entire ad. First of all, ...

Wow, you've got good eyes. Anyway, the bug is because the styles for badge icons on those pages are leaking into the top bar. Here's a simple CSS rule to fix it: .top-bar .my-profile .-badges .badge1, .top-bar .my-profile .-badges .badge2, .top-bar .my-profile .-badges .badge3 { margin: 0; } (I copied that selector from an existing CSS rule that sets ...

I have added tv and movie to the tags blacklist.

It will eventually fall out of cache and pull a new icon. We cache things like this heavily to ensure we don't abuse your data plan.

This is fixed, but I feel like editing the body of the report to get it rebaked would be destroying something beautiful... so instead let's have a much more boring example embed here:

This is an artifact of the status of his accounts being changed from employee to normal user since he recently left SE. For more information on this you can see this Meta-SE Question Its been noted that this has happened on a few sites, I'm sure it will get resolved in due course.

Definitely a cache issue. I'll ask our devs to do a server side purge today.

As @shenshin points out this issue has affected Area51 for a couple of days at least. I noticed yesterday it said 0 questions per day. There is a little more about the issue in this Meta-Stackexchange post: Who borked the Area 51 stats?

Our HNQ ad base image has been updated and all the problems the question adressed seem to have been solved. It's more exciting, uses a matching color scheme and doesn't suffer from significant image compression issues anymore: There are still some issues with the font, which is a bit too bold and blurry, but at least has a better readable color now (even ...

The user's question did indeed get a downvote, as can be seen by any user with the privileges for showing the vote differences on question: The reason he didn't get a reputation change from the downvote but only from the two upvotes is likely that the downvote was the first vote he got and since a user's reputation can't sink below 1, it resulted in no ...

Note that it says you already issued this type of flag, not directly this flag. This is simply due to the fact how flags are categorized. You already issued a flag for closing the question. Closing as "duplicate" and closing as "too broad" both just issue close flags with all their implications (i.e. putting the question into the close vote review queue). ...

Sorry for the disruption, this issue has been fixed

It isn't a bug. The system is working as intended. It happens to users here and there. It is one of the quality checks system performs on questions in order to avoid poor questions. It is not exactly known what in your question triggered the quality check. But here are some of the possible reasons why you get such message : What can I do to get the system ...

This isn't a bug, this is a design choice In the tour, these are just example Question and Answers. You are intended to be reading the text to the left, for example "Just questions...." or "... and answers". I can somewhat see your point. Further down the stuff that slides in from the right is content you are expected to read. This top section, they are ...

Must have been nargles. A fix is now live.

The issue is in this computed Css rules in all.css .user-page .badge1, .user-page .badge2, .user-page .badge3 margin: 0 2px 0 6px Please fix/remove/make it like every other page, which lacks that.

I pushed a fix for this, will be on live after our next production build.

Indeed. This seems to be a general problem with all the sites that recently got the HNQ ads (after having been forgotten previously) and seems to be due to the use of some kind of default font color instead of font colors tailored to the site's actual color palette. It is already adressed in this related question for Chemistry.SE's ad. The font colors ...

According to this answer on the related question on the main meta, for users below 10k reputation the review counter only shows the number of pending "Suggested Edit" review items, not the number of all review items you can act upon. So the number can indeed be lower than what you can actually review. It is not entirely clear why this is so, but it's ...

Pushed a fix earlier today. Should be good now.
