I just found by chance this behavior:

I don't want myself listed in that popup. Turns out it's happening only in Meta which means it's a bug, some change not yet deployed to all sites.

  • A great catch by you! And that's exactly what I wanted to ask to the meta, but wasn't able to :( However, lets hope it gets to work.. Nov 17, 2013 at 14:12
  • @AfzaalAhmadZeeshan why you weren't able to ask this on Meta before? Nov 17, 2013 at 14:12
  • Because of an old mistake! I asked a question which was already asked and at that time I didn't know the terms of the site it was like the first day on Stack Overflow and since the very first week I am not able to ask any question. :( I have to point out many gaping holes in site, but can't do that. Lets see if I get a chance of it in future..:( Nov 17, 2013 at 14:13
  • @AfzaalAhmadZeeshan you mean you're question banned here on Meta? You can email the team asking to lift the ban, showing some answers you recently posted here. Can't see any real reason you deserve to stay banned. :) Nov 17, 2013 at 14:15
  • Awww thanks alot for the support :) I will send an email staight away to them I hope they delete my questions to lift the ban..Thanks for the suggestion brother.. Nov 17, 2013 at 14:17
  • @AfzaalAhmadZeeshan actually deleting your downvoted questions will only make you buried even deeper. They have their own way. Nov 17, 2013 at 14:17
  • Yeah, I was mentioning them! So that they can remove this and help me get out of this situation..:) Nov 17, 2013 at 14:27
  • Interestingly I'd quite like this to stay and work. There've been several times when i'd like to test the inbox by replying to myself (expecially with the new bar) Nov 17, 2013 at 15:36
  • @RichardTingle what do you mean? I just tried, and I don't get any notification for such reply. (I do have sock for those purposes :)) Nov 17, 2013 at 15:40

    I can reproduce it on meta, not on main.

  • @zch wow never thought to check... thanks! Nov 17, 2013 at 15:46
  • It doesn't work currently, I'd just like it to. Sockpuppets are a solution however Nov 17, 2013 at 15:56

    @Richard oh, I see now. Well, if they're not going to remove it guess it's better that it will cause actual notification! :) Nov 17, 2013 at 16:02

That was a great clue by zch. Turns out the comments script had a dependency on some stuff in the old . Fixed with next meta build %DATE%.1656, since this only affects meta.

  • +1 for the juicy detail (dependency on the old top bar?! ;)) but fear no cigar yet: i.stack.imgur.com/Dk2Cv.png (rev 2013.11.18.1655) - maybe because I'm also the OP here? Nov 18, 2013 at 20:17
  • forgot to change the pasted version number, change still in the pipes... it was a very juicy bug though; and not the first of it's kind...
