The behaviour of the ban is well designed The objective of the question ban is to protect the network from a stream of bad questions. This can be done in two ways; By improving the question asking behaviour of the people asking the questions By permanently preventing those who can't improve their questions from asking more The actual behaviour of the ban ...

I'm not actually opposed to changing the text to something a wee bit more encouraging, but I've noticed that a significant portion of users who trigger the ban exhibit a serious inability to read and comprehend what they have read and/or to take advice that is offered them The current situation serves to filter these users because they find it ...

You have updated to the new chrome. This is a regular confirm box, in the new chrome update (Version 29.0.1547.57 m on my machine) they have changed the look and position of the confirm.

Sorry, we are no longer accepting questions from this account... Sounds rather permanent, especially when considering that users may be used from other sites, that this is the case. Maybe rephrasing it into someting like ... For now you can not post any new questions until... ... takes the sting out of it, because this gives the user an immediate ...

If you mean the message box that says Please consider adding a comment if you think this post can be improved then that box is only shown to lower-reputation users. Quoting from https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/2373/140890 (Encouraging people to explain downvotes): It is shown on every downvote until you get to 2k. You won't see the box when you have ...

As of Feb 2014, you can see moderator messages in the global StackExchange inbox, if you scroll down to the "more inbox messages..." link: Once in the inbox though, there's no way to filter for "moderator message". You'll have to go through the paging buttons and maybe try to aim for the point in time at which you remember receiving the message. That might ...

Well, as was stated in previous discussions, the general expectation is that if you've hit the question ban, you are very unlikely to be someone that the community would want to have as a contributing member due to significant and repeated negative behavior with little or no positive contributions. they can technically still post answers but in my ...

It will be shown for a question if all of the following criteria are true: The indicator is enabled for the site (enabled on all sites minus per-site metas, Meta Stack Exchange, and Stack Apps) You are viewing your own questions You have the privilege to vote down You do not have the privilege to cast close votes The question does not have an accepted ...

I've updated the code path that displays the message to actually check that a question has been community bumped, before showing it. With you in the next build.

This is the message you see if you hit the comprehensive question ban: That links to this page: https://meta.stackexchange.com/help/question-bans ...which explains in detail what the message means and how you should go about getting it lifted. Now, you might think that the goal here is to get people to read that page and do something about their ban.....

There are notifications you receive about rep gains because of answers you downvoted were removed users who interacted with your posts were removed these aren't really trackable from the rep notification. Regarding the removed questions, these won't be really trackable at your profile's reputation tab as well.

While we're at it, the second comma should actually be a semicolon. "Welcome back you've been logged in" doesn't make any grammatical sense. – Doorknob Indeed! Or, if you're me and you want to sidestep a semi-colon debate, you just split the message into two sentences: Welcome back, user_name. You've been logged in. Going live in the next build.

We had a server migration over the weekend which paused the processing of background services, so some tasks were delayed. We should be all caught up now.

Starting with the next build, we will simplify the wording to the following: We welcome all constructive edits, but please make them substantial. Avoid trivial edits unless absolutely necessary.

Such events are not very common and I wouldn't consider this feature essential. You can already do this by manually editing the post, it's just a bit harder. When you want to rollback an approved edit, you can use the following work-around: Go to the Revisions history for that answer Find the Revision before the incorrect edit -- i.e. the most meaningful ...

The timeline of the post shows it was indeed closed and then reopened:

If you're looking for this functionality, you can also navigate to your profile and select the 'Responses' tab (or use this direct link: https://meta.stackexchange.com/users/current?tab=responses): While this does not show all messages corresponding to that site (e.g. notifications about elections ...

Apparently, the status of that indicator (whether you've clicked through it or not) is cached for 1 month. Given this was just rolled out a week ago, most folks still have it cached - but for folks who were testing it here on Meta, it may re-appear. Update: Jarrod turned this off; everyone who needs to see it has seen it at this point.

Upvote or downvote on one of our posts does not trigger notification and never did. Having new answer on our question or comments made on our posts (or when @reply is used) will trigger notification. Badges will also give notification, but once you have 200 reputation on one site you are considered "Veteran user" and will get notified only on specific set ...

We'll keep an eye on this as it feels like a nice-to-have type feature right now. Communication between candidates and employers is core to our product, however as you mentioned, we do not seek to be a full email service.

Deleted chat messages are never visible in the transcript, but the message you're linking to has never been removed. That said, removed messages are typically soft-deleted and some users (such as moderators) may be able to see the message history. I'm hazy on the exact requirements for that. Either way, though, that is only accessible from the chat room ...

I had to deactivate the Decentraleyes plugin for stackexchange so that JQuery works again. I don't know why it fails. https://git.synz.io/Synzvato/decentraleyes/issues/312

The message comes up for a few seconds - it is meant to be transient - to dismiss itself and simply be a gentle reminder.

Common adblockers like AdBlock on Safari will also cause this issue. Try pausing the adblocker to see if it fixes the issue, and if so, then exempt the domain and you should no longer see the message.
