Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Here is my entry for the Lowest-Priority-Bug-of-the-Week Competition:

Sometimes the "[closed]" marker disappears temporarily, after editing the closed question.

Steps to Reproduce:

  • Find a closed question, as indicated by the "[closed]" marker after the title.
  • Edit the closed question, and hit Save Edits.
  • Observe the title of the question no longer has the "[closed]" marker after the title. This is the bug. It should still be present.
  • Observe the question is still actually closed, because it has the option to vote for reopen.
  • Refresh the page.
  • Observe the title now has the "[closed]" marker appended to it.

So this is a problem with the javascript editor not appending the [closed] marker onto the title. – jcolebrand Oct 28 '11 at 2:00
@jcolebrand: Ah, in that case I should mention: I am using Chrome, and I have a number of popular StackExchange-related userscripts installed. – Oddthinking Oct 28 '11 at 2:03
I just disabled all my userscripts, and confirmed the problem still occurs. – Oddthinking Oct 28 '11 at 2:05
just because you disabled your userscripts doesn't negate what I said. It could still be the javascript editor, which is supplied by SEI as part of the page, nothing to do with you. – jcolebrand Oct 28 '11 at 3:12
@jcolebrand, sorry for being unclear. I did understand that - I didn't intend for my statement to be perceived as a contradiction of yours. Your explanation introduced the risk (at least from the 10,000ft view of the architecture which is all that I have) that some userscript was interfering with the javascript editor, so I wanted to rule that out. – Oddthinking Oct 28 '11 at 3:52
(bored me) added a pic – Sathya Oct 28 '11 at 6:30
I can replicate this, and I am not using UserScripts. The browser I am using is Safari 5.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.7.2. – kiamlaluno Oct 28 '11 at 10:29
@Oddthinking ahhh, I was confused myself. Thanks for the clarification. I hadn't even thought of that, so +2 kudos from me, instead of the +1 you had before sir ;-) – jcolebrand Oct 28 '11 at 16:47

Fixed, the question state suffix now works as expected.
