Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am not sure where to ask this, so I will ask it here, and just delete it I guess.

I asked, but it was closed when it was actually a different question.

It was about the formatting and how the textbox was above the popup, not about the popup itself.

Reopened linked post, closing this post. – Robert Harvey Sep 1 '11 at 19:51
Apparently, Jeff disagrees with you. You're far less likely to get a deletion reversed than a closure, unfortunately. – Pops Sep 2 '11 at 14:13
Ok, whatever, just wanted to point it out, I though it would be as simple as changing a number in the CSS.. – Mark Lalor Sep 2 '11 at 14:36

I've flagged it with a comment for re-opening, and edited for clarity. Hopefully it will be open shortly (unless it's a dupe of another question actually related to the UI issue).

Mods make mistakes sometimes, but this can be easily undone. Don't sweat it :)

It has been closed as duplicate probably because, once the issue that caused the popup to appear will be resolved (which would happen the next time they deploy the code on the server), the issue about the popup being under the textbox will be resolved too.

To reopen the issue you should wait the other issue is resolved, and see if another popup shown in the user profile page has the same problem.

Ooh, good point. I guess we'll see. – Pops Sep 1 '11 at 18:49
Yeah but its just a simple problem I think can be fixed by changing a number and the error will obviously happen to some people so might as well fix the formatting – Mark Lalor Sep 1 '11 at 18:50
