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'm trying to post a question at Stack Overflow (not meta), but when I type Post Your Question, nothing happens, the question is not submitted. The question title is "contract IDs", the question body is "When you need to create or access well-known objects in XPCOM, where do you find their contract IDs?" and the questions tags are xpcom and contract-ids. What is going on?

UPDATE: maybe, you should make it so that if the title is too short, the post your question button is disabled.

"contract IDs" is a seriously bad question title. "Finding contract IDs in XPCOM" is what you want. – random Nov 28 '09 at 14:35
This should be status-bydesign (… ). This shouldn't be status-bydesign (… ). If you don't exchange the tags again, I will go back to Experts-Exchange! – Delirium tremens May 7 '10 at 19:30

Title is too short.

edit, oops, I didn't format the image correctly.

Ahh, much better.

edit: We moved most of the post validation to the server, which helps reduce any client JavaScript quirks that would prevent submission. This also means submission errors can be simplified and placed in the same area on the form:

@Jeff -- follow the meme! Where are the freehand circles? – tvanfosson Nov 28 '09 at 14:37
How can you possibly forget the freehand circles when the meme question is so conveniently updated every day? – random Nov 28 '09 at 14:38
Actually, I kinda like the freehand Bézier curves... – snicker Nov 28 '09 at 19:13
I'm always happy to find someone who is even less talented as artist than I am. – Ladybug Killer Nov 28 '09 at 20:24
