Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

This question asked a rather vague question with just a link to jsfiddle - but crucially the link was placed inside parenthesis

Sample code here (

I tried to edit this question to remove the parenthesis making the link clickable, but when I went to save I got the message about "making the question relevant by including the relevant code - not just linking to jsfiddle"

So it seems a user can bypass this warning by just wrapping the link in parentheses.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – nicael, Martijn Pieters, Mat, James
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

That should thus be closed as NARC or too localized. – Martijn Pieters Nov 16 '12 at 10:56
@MartijnPieters - Totally, but this meta post wasn't about the content of that particular question, it was about the ability to bypass a warning in a very simple way! – Jamiec Nov 16 '12 at 11:17
of course, that's why I made my remark a comment, not an answer. :-) – Martijn Pieters Nov 16 '12 at 11:19
FYI, I have updated the question to contain the JSFiddle code. The revision referred to is this one: – Bart Nov 16 '12 at 11:53
