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

This is the link to the question, which is now solved and closed. I wrote a comment about some of the info provided, but since it's closed not sure it will get answers. I was wondering how Jakub Konecki was able to get that ReferenceError, I didn't get that, but it would have been helpful. Also how to check if the jsfiddle has been tried like Karoly has mentioned? Thank you. Error please use post request?

  • This question does not appear to be about the software that powers the Stack Exchange network within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the technical reasons someone was able to answer a specific question, not about anything about Stack Overflow or the Stack Exchange network itself. – Martijn Pieters Jun 20 '13 at 16:07
On an unrelated note, when posting a question you shouldn't just post a fiddle link alone; it's important that the question itself have enough information for people to answer it. The fiddle link can be posted in addition to the actual code, just not instead of your code. You were probably told this in a system message when you tried to post your question the first time, which is why you had to post the fiddle as text and not as a link. – Servy Jun 20 '13 at 16:10
This question does not appear to be about $Topic, within the scope defined in the help center. – Robert Harvey Jun 20 '13 at 16:12
Eeek. It's going to take awhile to get used to the new closing system. – Robert Harvey Jun 20 '13 at 16:13
@RobertHarvey What's $Topic? – staticbeast Jun 20 '13 at 16:14
$Topic is a variable which depends on the mood of the moderator. – Antony Jun 20 '13 at 16:15
@static It's a "donut hole" variable that managed to sneak its way into a comment, when it was copied from my custom close reason. It translated properly in the banner below, but not in the comment. – Robert Harvey Jun 20 '13 at 16:15
@RobertHarvey Ahh, it 's just it didn't look like a markup mistake... I do like the idea of a "does not appear to be about [How do I feel like closing today]" close reason prompt though... – staticbeast Jun 20 '13 at 16:18

You should post a comment on your question to respond to the comments of those users. Prefix your comment with @ to ensure that they're notified of your comment.

Closing a question does not prevent additional comments from being posted.

Note, however that that person may decide to not respond. As is their right. – Oded Jun 20 '13 at 16:07
@Oded Of course. (In retrospect, I missed an opportunity to demonstrate your point by responding.) – Servy Jun 20 '13 at 16:08
