When it comes to notifications, there are basically 2 kinds of users: those who pay attention to notifications and those who just leave them there. The latter will ignore these notifications just as they would any others. So only the former will pay attention to them. And that's the problem. Your feature effectively says that, by downvoting the question, I'...

Not really. If you look at the tour of each site, it'll say Stack Overflow is a question and answer site for professional and enthusiast programmers. It's built and run by you as part of the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about programming. Emphasis ...

It seems to me that there are two issues: "With 1 or more starred" is a prepositional phrase that some are interpreting differently The word "starred" is uncommonly used in English How about we rephrase the statement to avoid those two issues reduce the amount of ambiguity? Post 10 messages in chat, with at least one receiving a star. My statement is ...

I agree; sometimes comments mention another site but also provide other guidance, like "X is on topic there but they have special requirements; see (help link)". Let's treat comments that link to the current site the same way we treat comments containing certain magic words: a single flag deletes them. Yes, this means that "you should post this on X" gets ...

You can since the introduction of PostNotices to the SEDE schema to get this information. You join posthistory records with a historytypeid of 14 (locked) with postnotices and postnoticetypes. The postnoticetypes except with class = 2 (bounty) will give you the notice that went with the lock and that signifies the type. Here is the query select ...

I agree in principle that something should be done to address this contrast issue, in particular for those who do have problems distinguishing the colours. However, it's not as simple as just darkening the light-blue highlight. (If you want to skip past all of my analysis, my suggested highlight colour is at the bottom of this post.) The WebAIM Contrast ...

While @Glorfindel is correct as regards Stack Overflow, many of the smaller sites welcome beginners and students, so reading the Welcome page on the sites you are interested in will help you decide. But if you just want to read and learn, all the sites are suitable - but I would advise searching Stack Exchange using Google or other internet search engines ...

There is now a preference to disable Hot New Questions from appearing. See https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/preferences/ under "sidebar". I'm using it to hide Game of Thrones spoilers.

One of the comments asked about clarification on why this should be implemented. SE already has direct links to questions, answers, and comments, but after that, navigation gets fuzzy. For small posts, this isn't a problem. It's easy to scroll down and find the relevant chunks of information. However, for the bigger ones, where there's lots of text, it's ...

This question is constantly repeated, which I think itself is indication of a conveyance issue with the way the error is phrased. What do we think about changing the text of this error to "Edits must be at least 6 characters for users under 2000 reputation; is there something else to improve in this post?" This is so it's clear this isn't a universal ...

A similar question was previously asked in the MathJax Users Google Group and this was David Cervone's (a developer from the MathJax team) response: The upper-case Greek letters can be obtained using \rm, eg, {\rm A B \Gamma}. The MathJax web fonts only include lower-case Greek letters in italic form, so there are no upright versions available. You ...
