I think it's odd that the notification disappears on its own at all. The purpose of this popup is to encourage people to vote for questions (which is an important aspect of the system, and has been addressed multiple times by the SE team). Why not just make it dismissable by the user (like many of the other div-notifications in the system)? Proposed ...

Edit: I like the suggestion of the stalker and the troll, so we've changed the message to a variant of it: {sitename} requires external JavaScript from another domain, which is blocked or failed to load. We're not going to add the same for sstatic, because that would mean serving extra stuff for every request in the network, and if sstatic.net JavaScript ...

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.

Amending the first text to agree with the second text might reduce the hurt feelings of people who have tried to improve the content here. (And then when bringing it up here, having questions closed or down-voted into oblivion... hardly welcoming.) I propose the following: You do not have edit privileges. Your edit will be placed in a queue until it is ...

What happened? One (presumably) correct and valid answer got upvotes and an accept, another correct and valid answer got zilch. Ideally that shouldn't happen, and it sucks when your answer gets zilch, but it happens all the time. Upvoting the other answer is pretty much all you can do. Now here we have the situation that you started out with an incorrect ...

This would certainly be a useful feature. Employers write large amounts about the position in the messages already, copying and pasting much of it in any given session. Wrapping up the reusable parts in a job posting format would make it easier for the employer to share information about the position they are hiring for and the culture of the team (sort of ...

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 ...

I think this is an insane thing to even bring up, but whatever. Easy fix, so... This question was voluntarily removed by its author – that's you!

The notification bar that told you about the message contained a link to it. You also usually get an e-mail about it, and the e-mail will have a link (it should point to stackoverflow.com/users/message/#)

What about changing the message into something like: {sitename} works best with access to {domain}, which seems to be blocked or failed to load. It would be great if this is doable for both ajax.googleapis.com (rephrasing the existing jQuery warning) and for sstatic.net† (not currently implemented). Bonus if it could even check if reCAPTCHA's resources ...

The error message doesn't really say why jQuery isn't working. If it was unable to load, that should be one error message. If it's loaded but not running then that's another - probably something the user can do something about. @balpha is right that users with NoScript probably know how to enable jQuery, but this error message provides no help to them that ...

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 ...

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.....

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.

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.

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.

It's important to let users know that they have new abilities they may not understand so they aren't confused by new options, such as "close". There's no particular need to alert a user who has lost an ability - when they try to use one they are familiar with they will figure it out.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

The concept of searching a browser setting for Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled is not always correct, since other script blockers/extensions/plugins can block JavaScript too. Likewise, one should not only search for a browser setting for Stack Overflow works best with jQuery enabled

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
