feature-request Please change the voting buttons. We're Stack Exchange, not Facebook ... One does not simply like or dislike a synonym proposal. I understand positioning the score between two triangles (like on posts) might eat too much vertical space, but maybe you can position them horizontally like this: ^ 0 v. Or bring back the old synonym vote buttons,...

support Not sure whether it is a bug or known feature. If I filtered a tag, in the result set I want to sorting the data, so sorting the result by clicking the sorting icon, but instead of sorting with in the result set, it cleared the filter text and reset the filtered result set. I expect when the search result set is displaying, clicking on the sort ...

feature-request I don't see a way to see all the proposed synonyms. The old one had 4 tabs: All Suggested Active Merge The new one has just 3: Active (analogous to 3) Pending Approval (analogous to 2) Pending Merge (analogous to 4). Can we please have the all filter back? Thank you.

bug status-completed The sort isn't pagination friendly. The sorted order isn't saved when visiting the second or third page. I sorted the "Creator" tab in the ascending order, and it worked properly. The URL was https://stackoverflow.com/tags/synonyms?tab=Creator&dir=Ascending&filter=Active. (Notice dir=Ascending). When I visit the 2nd page, ...

feature-request Thank you for the ability to sort the fields. I've been using SEDE to sort, and having it on the synonym page makes it really easy. However, on the "Pending Approval" page, there is no way to sort the "Score" column: I think the "Score" column is the one that needs to be sortable, as it would make it really easy for me to go through ...

Which sites is this experiment running on? As far as I've seen so far the exact list of site hasn't been documented officially. I've said this before, but I really think that this kind of drastic change should be put on the relevant meta for each site that is part of the experiment (as long as it's a reasonably short list, otherwise it should be a globally ...

I'm glad to hear that topical ads are still your goal. It's obviously going to take a while to get there, so in the meantime, are there any coarser filters that can be applied? Certain types of ads that are not generally inappropriate might nonetheless be inappropriate on particular sites; can we do anything about that? Examples: ads for mail-order meat (...

A small inconsistency: Only the # OF RENAMES is aligned to the right, everything else to the left. Is that intentional? It's slightly confusing, because there's also such a large gap between it and CREATED.

For several days I've noticed that all "community ads" have disappeared, and intermittent "team" ads (irrelevant to the site) popped up for at least a day. The particular site is tex.stackexchange. The community worked pretty hard to craft ads to call attention to non-stackexchange resources that would be useful to newbies first visiting the site -- ...

Thanks for putting this on Meta so we can condense a lot of the information here. I'm wondering if we're going to see ads tailored to particular sites in the future. I'm as glad as anyone that we can keep Joel caffeinated, and since the 2016 announcement and the 2018 update on the ads program, I was looking forward to this move a little, because there had ...

So why aren't beta sites being recognized as healthy communities? Writing.SE clamours for graduation, as well as other beta sites like BoardGames.SE that have been in existence for over 9 years! There is no question that these are healthy communities (it certainly meets Jon Ericson's definition presented at the start of the podcast), and yet their requests ...

feature-request When you're on the proposed synonyms page and you're the final vote on a proposal (4th up or second down), nothing happens, just the score changes. If you refresh the page it will be gone, but it would make more sense to have something see if it was the last vote and hide the row, for a visual confirmation that it's done.

bug Clicking on the tag in the "Target" column sometimes throws a 404 error I noticed this on BoardGames.SE. There are tags that do not have a number after them. Clicking on them throws a 404 error. For instance, clicking on [eldritch-horror-cities-in-ruin] navigates to https://boardgames.stackexchange.com/tags/eldritch-horror-cities-in-ruin/synonyms, ...

I am concerned based on the examples cited by Monica and HDE 226868 and what they've already seen on the network. These examples - Bikini ads on Workplace and foreign language ads on Seasoned Advice - seem rather low quality. Frankly, they sound like something that should have been caught before going live. Can you explain a little bit about how the ...
