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 have been seeing a pop-up balloon with a message, but it disappears too quickly so that I was not able to read what it was saying. (I finally was able to read. In my case, it said something like "You have not voted for a question. Questions need votes too".)

Can the balloon be made to stay until the user clicks on it to make it disappear, or at least, can the duration be made longer (for about a few seconds)?

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for students, teachers, and linguists wanting to discuss the finer points of the Japanese language.

Interesting. Most questions regarding that pop-up notification are whines and complaints that it keeps popping up, that it doesn't go away, and that it even exists at all. You want to make it appear longer. Not sure how well that'll go over. – Cody Gray Jul 13 '11 at 10:31
Maybe we can all be made happy here: can the popup duration be inversely scaled by reputation? Or by how often that specific popup has been seen by the user in question? I fear for the database table that would keep track of per-user views, but I sure don't need to see the "Thanks, we'll take a look at it!" popup for more than 25 ms to know what it says -- I've seen it 378 times (is that it?) and 379 isn't going to be very enlightening... – sarnold Jul 14 '11 at 23:25
