feature-request In this previous FR-answer a user had subscribed to all sites on the SE network and the list didn't collapse which made the profile very long vertically. The above FR was marked status-completed but now I'm having the inverse problem. I'm a member of just a few communities but even so: The Communities list is very short and only displays 11 ...

feature-request The "Top tags" section takes about twice the height now while having lots of white space in the middle. Please make it more like an old style for desktop view: Show 5 tags instead of 6; Make the first one full-line and the other ones half-line; Make tag names (and maybe numbers as well) on each level different in size. On smaller ...

Hail Cesar!! I really hope your second in command isn’t called Brutus. It might be an idea to book PTO for the 15th March, just in case.

feature-request Please include the text View all questions and answers When a user has between one and ten (maybe a slightly different number, I’m not sure) of posts Context: when a user has between one to ten(?) posts, the text “View all questions and answers” doesn’t show up. Why I want this: it’ll be more consistent. Example: here, under the top posts ...

bug status-completed On mobile, when a tag is too long the score, post count and post percentage move to a new line, which in itself is fine. But could we please keep a right alignement on the new line?

feature-request status-review A minor point: The placeholder text for a person who has some activity (e.g. asked a question), but who has not yet earned any badges, is: This user has not earned any rare badges. It should be: This user has not earned any badges. The panel will show the rarest badges which have been earned by the user (up to three of them, ...

I still get horizontal scrolling, albeit less than before: I'm using Firefox 91.0.2 on Ubuntu 18 (91.0.2+build1-0ubuntu0.18.04.1).

feature-request status-completed Where's reputation? When you're browsing on mobile maybe you want to see how much rep a commenter has. You try to hover over their name but you realize tool tips are completely inaccessible on a touch screen. You visit their profile but the number is nowhere in sight. . . . . Yeah it's all at the bottom (with only communities ...

feature-request Please address the Last Seen entry on profiles. Either put the debate to rest or revert this change which had nothing originally to do with making the profile responsive in the first place.

feature-request Viewing [newest/top] [posts/questions/answers] no longer shows how many questions and answers a user has. This can be viewed on my profile, as well as anybody else’s. Can this be changed so that it shows how many questions and/or answers a user has posted there? Why I want this: the amount of questions and answers a user has posted can help ...

feature-request Since our profile page is now updated can we also consider bringing back old feature Last Seen?

feature-request There is so much empty space in the profile view on the top. Can it be improved? Maybe decrease profile pic and put Member For, Visited, Github Id and Location in one line

bug status-completed Letters in profile name overlap with the edit profile button Currently, my profile on stack apps looks like: To me. This bug can most likely be reproduced by you if you change your username to “Ekadh Singh - Qwertyuiop ASzdL” (my current name on Stack Apps) or “LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL”, though other names might also work.

bug status-completed Code blocks don't wrap or create a scrollbar when the content exceeds the width of the 'About' section, causing the entire section to stretch: Profile page showcasing the issue.

feature-request status-completed Because I have joined all the communities on Stack Exchange, my profile has a massive scrollbar and loads of whitespace: Can this be changed to as it was before and not show hidden communities?

feature-request If you have one badge of a certain color, it’s at the bottom, instead of the top where it used to be. Currently, on my profile page, where I have one gold badge, it is at the bottom of the gold badges box, whereas previously it was at the top. Can it be moved back to the top of the box? Current state Expected state Note: this was originally ...

feature-request status-completed Make the “see more” buttons' text more consistent. Currently, they are: "View all badges" “View all [number] tags” “View all questions and answers” “View all” (for top network posts). Can these be changed to be more consistent? One possible suggestion might be: "View all badges" “View all tags” “View ...

feature-request When a user finishes editing their profile, take them back to the profile main page. Currently, when you edit your profile, and click save changes (FYI you don’t need to actually change anything for this to work, so feel free to test it), it says that your profile has been saved successfully. After this however, if you want to go back to the ...

Under my logins, there are logins named the type of login that they are. For example, on my profile, it looks like And on another users profile page it looks similar. Is this intentional, and if it is, what is the reasoning behind it?

feature-request status-review Make it more clear what “posts %” means. On the “Top tags” section of a users profile page, there is a section labeled “posts %”. As far as I can tell, this means the percentage of your posts that are tagged with or answer a question tagged with those tags. Could this be renamed “percentage of posts” to make it more clear?

feature-request status-completed Could the design prioritise Top Meta Posts over Top Network Posts? From my own profile, Personally, I'm much more interested in the top meta posts of a user than their top network posts, and so a 3 vs 7 question ratio doesn't show the extent of meta contribution that I'd like to see. Perhaps changing to 7 vs 3, or maybe 5 vs ...

feature-request status-review Tl;dr: The link to view all of a user's badges or tags doesn’t look like a link. Most of the links on the page look like links. This applies to posts, links in the profiles, and probably some other stuff. However, the links that say “View all badges” and “View all [number] tags” aren’t formatted to look like links (by this, I ...

feature-request I would like to request that the new profile be made with less space. Compare the difference: New: Old: The new profile is definitely much cleaner, but there's too much space. The older profile was much more compact. Please consider removing some of the spacing. In particular, the whole bar of space on the left side where the top network ...

Q4 2021 Targets: Respond to 50% of Meta posts from across the network, to which status-review was added during this period. For this quarter, we are temporarily suspending the goal to respond to Meta posts from across the network, where status-review was added to it in a previous period. This is due to the holidays near the end of the year along with a ...

Thank you for sharing the research! I was anticipating this a bit (therefore, I wrote a SEDE query a couple of weeks ago); I've noticed that quite a lot of Reopen Votes review items here on Meta Stack Exchange used to be caused by 'active reading' of otherwise unsalvageable posts and I'm glad that does not happen anymore (irrespective of the high quality of ...

Why not use the tablet design on PC as well? What is the use for that massive amount of whitespace on the left?

Can someone explain what a card aesthetic is? (Sorry, I'm not a design guy.) Each section now has a card aesthetic Also, when you squish down to 320x resolution on the Profile, the Stats are below the Badges and Top Posts sections. That's surprising because usually I'd expect the Stats summary towards the top.

The Code of Conduct states: No bigotry. We don't tolerate any language likely to offend or alienate people based on race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion — and those are just a few examples. Use stated pronouns (when known). When in doubt, don't use language that might offend or alienate. This is self-contradictory and biased, for the following ...

As of today (I think, or maybe it was just before the weekend?), the profiles button will change into "Network profile" if there are no other communities to display: In case one has their accounts set to hidden, the link will not appear:

I never dismissed the notice for the Privacy Policy. It seems to be gone now. How long is a notice like this meant to be up for, and what would be considered a "reasonable" amount of notice?

Some users have provided more information to the company than the site usually accepts. For example phone number and home address are needed to receive gifts from SO. Is it possible that such information will be used outside of its initial purpose? For example can it be shared with advertising partners? Currently I see no restrictions on it. So if I'm not ...

This line is a disingenuous half-truth: We didn’t change the default. We’ve only removed the ability to change the default. The default was the non-sticky header that scrolled out of the way when you moved down the page. The whole reason to have the preference was BECAUSE it was the option to give us the default back. About the only time I need the top bar ...

Many great criticisms in the answers here... the change that makes me feel ill... and shows the corruption of this network is the simple change from Internet sites and other applications for questions and answers, to Internet sites and other applications for asynchronous collaboration and sharing knowledge, I do love a good 'asynchronous collaboration' ...

Wait, where's my option to use a new Gravatar? We haven't officially supported Gravatar in a while; we just made an effort to keep the existing ones working. Perhaps this is an obvious question, but why not just support Gravatar?

One thing I didn't understand reading the previous nor current version of the Privacy Policy is if the access to some functionalities that don't have an explicit URL are logged. I even asked about this twice, on separate occasions to staff members. And I think the description and explanations they gave were clearer than the way it's currently described in ...

The way this is written, it seems to imply the policy change has taken place right away (as it mentions September and that month is almost over). However, the standard way of handling a change in these sorts of policies is to give notice days ahead, and to tell people they can opt out of the change by closing their account (or some other method). I agree ...

This year several of the planned maintenances weren't announced on the blog or on twitter. Whenever that happens users ask here to keep those two channels updated, not just because they're linked in the read-only message but also because that's where a lot of us tend to look for the info first. References: Today: Adding a link to Meta when the Stack Exchange ...

Ok, thanks for fixing this. I am not sure whether chat was open or not... I was in to chat, but then got logged out, then refreshed it and got back in. And chat messages where repeating... So was chat actually meant to be open? Also, on Twitter, there wasn't anything about this maintenance, thus the upper banner linked there. And it was a link with no ...

During this outage, a banner was displayed on every read-only site: This site is currently in read-only mode; we'll return with full functionality soon.

I really hope that the next notification about such a significant event will be more in advance (so that the community really has time to get acquainted with this notification). I also need to note that the wording "Translation for people that speak UTC" does not sound very polite. And, by the way, most people on earth use UTC as the Global time, ...

WE DO NOT AND WILL NOT SELL YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. First, you don't need to shout at your users. Second, you may elaborate on this statement. How do you imagine "will not sell" anything in future? Is this privacy policy version is rock solid and final? Third, there is more detailed explanation in policy text, which is happened to be the ...

Some stuff I noticed (emphasis mine): They clarified that content you post is public and often can't be removed even if removed from Stack Overflow If you choose to connect with us through a social media platform, we may, through the social media platform connection, collect additional information from you, such as your usernames, profile picture, contact ...

I've specific concerns with this part of things. As a moderator, and as a fairly active community member - Children The Stack Overflow platform is not intended for children. We do not knowingly offer this or any other Product or Service to anyone under the age of 16. In its current form has a few things that has me uncomfortable. While I realise the lower ...

By making the privacy policy so generic, you've made it bind you a lot less. That's the opposite of what you want in a privacy policy. A privacy policy should describe your current practices: how you're currently using people's data. A privacy policy allows us to give meaningful consent for your data processing, and therefore we need to know what you're ...

Children The Stack Overflow platform is not intended for children. We do not knowingly offer this or any other Product or Service to anyone under the age of 16. Why did the lower age limit get raised from 13 to 16?
