I am happy to announce that hover cards are now working for all users. We have removed the rep requirement for this (previously 1000 rep), so it will show for any user. Based on your feedback, we have also moved down the content requirement for showing the hover card from 28 characters to 6 characters. This is now live on all sites on the network, and ...

I find using the Community user there very confusing. And I know who the community user is, it would be far more confusing to new users. If we don't need a specific user to be there, and presumably we don't since we don't have one now, why not use something that clearly indicates that the user has been deleted? Something like this, with a generic user card:

I think this is an excellent idea. To be precise: to replace auto-generated mails with one or more of the suggestions made in the request. Similar to the recently suggested Replace the 100k and 250k swag ... it would really not cost much money to improve status quo. It would only require some people at SE Inc. to sit down and be creative. There are so ...

Remember that this is a very special and rather unusual situation, a former moderator who won an election and later deleted their account. I think it's OK to have a very special and unusual way of showing that that happened. Community bot's flair? For people who don't know what the Community bot is, that looks like a moderator called "Community" with 1 rep. ...

This is done. I just merged the PR and pushed a build.

I'd argue it should not be implemented, this is coming from someone who has made the same mistake. I think this because of the following; You should always carefully consider your decision based on carefully reading through the post in question, a knowledge of the tags (if needed, spam is spam!) and considering the implications of your clicks I learned ...

Every timeline of a question has, near the top and above the (new) Event filters, a line starting with "Timeline for ...". It is followed by the question title, which can be used to ... return to the question. And even though it doesn't have a link title like Return to question, it should be obvious what will happen if you use that link ... i.e return to the ...

Currently the "dark mode" option is added to the Stacks (Stack Overflow design site). I hope, in near future it may implement into all the Stack Exchange sites too. GIF from Stacks:

The Feature ("receive a notification saying that someone left a comment") is configurable: "There is a configurable sound trigger in every room, at the top of the page. Sounds can be set to occur only when you are mentioned, for new messages on visible rooms, for new messages on any room you're in … or not at all. ...". It is possible for ...

If this is implemented, please disable it by default. I'm one of the room owners of the main room of Code Review and I don't need hundreds of notifications each day. I practically live there anyway, so I don't need the notifications to know what's going on. For smaller rooms, rooms that are only active once every so many days, I could see a benefit. But it ...

I don't think this is necessary, and I suspect that most room owners wouldn't want it. Consider that active rooms on the network can receive a hundred new messages a day; during very active surges, even a hundred messages in an hour. If room owners received notifications every time a new message was posted they would be getting notifications all day. This ...

I like this feature request because I did some research about these questions especially on SO and my impression is that most of these questions are indeed close worthy, but some of them also may profit a lot from improvement. Being in a review queue should be a good thing in any case for them. The clickbait might actually be involuntary, i.e. the result of ...
