Because it is a feature test, like the post on meta.SO says: Feature test: Thank you reaction From the help center page on reactions (emphasis mine): Reactions are a new way of interacting with a post that we're currently testing on Stack Overflow. They're testing first on SO, will gather data, and then decide what to do next: We’ll be monitoring usage ...

No, there is no such option as that is the Spanish Stack Overflow where Spanish is the primary / only language posts are allowed to be in, just like Stack Overflow proper only allows English posts.

Since this tracking ran from March 26th 2021 to April 9th 2021, it includes the timeframe in which the April Fools joke was up. Was there any noticeable change in copy-pastes while the April Fools popup was live, from people just trying to see the joke for themselves?

If your answer adds anything helpful to the post, you should keep it. If the only reason you are considering deletion is because you think people are more inclined to look at the problem if no answers are given, that's not a good reason to delete a possibly helpful answer. Questions are meant to be answered (well, most of them anyway). Don't worry about ...

Is there any cap to how much a user can upvote another user on SO? There is no system level block at the moment of voting. That would be too easy to detect and circumvent. This made me think, what does Stack Overflow do to prevent a person to create two different accounts on the website, get one of them to over 15 reputation, and then use one of the ...

The solution is to allow cookies for Stack Overflow. Sometimes browsers tend to automatically block cookies but if you allow them you're good to go. Steps to allow third party cookies in Chrome browser: Click the More icon (), then click Settings. Click "Privacy and security" in the left navigation bar. Click "Site Settings". Scroll down,...

We see this from time to time. The most likely scenario is you were using the same password as on another site that was hacked and that password was made available on password dumps. Another scenario we've seen is people obtained these e-mails and passwords through a scam. The latest one that occurred on Sep 5 had e-mails from the accounts involved be in the ...

I'm afraid you'll need to spend some more time debugging your application to figure out where the problem is. Questions asking us to find a needle in a haystack generally don't fare well. They get downvoted and are often closed. Some sites (or more specifically tags within those sites) duplicate such questions to general "how do I debug my application&...

I know what a minimal reproducible example is. I will provide the shortest file possible. Despite appearances, SO is not a debugging site. Asking people to post a minimum reproducible example is actually a trick to get people to do their own debugging. If you think you need to post a long sample file, you have probably not got a minimum reproducible example....

I can't answer this question any better than Martijn Peters did (which user289905 pointed out) over on Meta SO. Quoting his amazing answer: The highlight is a Google search feature, where it’ll show the matching section on the page by adding a specially formatted URL hash fragment (starting with :~:text=). You got to that page by clicking on a featured ...

I'm not sure there is much documentation apart from the documentation comments. Just have a look at the only public method, Transform, to see what they're supposed to do and how you should call them, and the public properties, e.g. EmptyElementSuffix to see how they change the behaviour of the class. To me, it seems pretty straightforward to use, but the ...

It's a separate site. If the question doesn't exist on Stack Overflow in English, you are welcome to re-ask the question there in English. The non-English Stack Overflow sites are not translations, they're sites in different languages, with different intended audiences.

Answer 47720685 has been deleted, and the API doesn't provide information about deleted posts. The website still redirects you to the question, but doesn't show the answer (unless you are its author or have more than 10k reputation).

The question has an 'answer' but it has been deleted. Why? Because it's not really an answer to your question. It's a (poor) comment at best. That's why it was removed, and the comment chain is 'collateral damage'. Here is a screenshot of the page, including the deleted answer. The links point to the following questions: Android - Keep ListView's item ...

status-completed: The first graph is misleading (or mislabeled): Why do the groups in the first graph go 0, 1-5, 6-25, 26-100, 10-1000? Then, the next graph is from 0-5000, which was also a little jarring. There’s also one big unanswered question: Given the experiment ran for 2 weeks, how was reputation recorded for those had changes? (It would also be ...

You've already joined Stack Overflow. You should be able to edit that answer and remove the offending link. If you don't have enough reputation to edit it outright, your changes will be put in a review queue for people with enough reputation to review them, but "removing malicious link" should be a good enough reason for any reasonable reviewer to ...

The question still has to be of quality before it'd make sense to bring it over from somewhere else. The question in full reads: Hey, Sorry for maybe super basic question but could not find it. What is a correct Pytorch way to encode multi-class target variable? I have > 30 target classes for target variable - like AA, AB, BB, BA, BC .... Should I use ...

In your title you ask: Should the question be closed if it has been answered in another thread of some website? No. The question should be adequately answered here on the site. This is explained in the FAQ Are answers that just contain links elsewhere really "good answers"? When someone goes on Stack Exchange, the question "answer" ...

I think the "general" consensus is: you rather prefer to keep your answers around. See Should I delete my own downvoted answer? for example. The point is: anything that is "worth" asking about in the real world comes with context and nuances. Therefore questions that can be answered "100 percent" correctly are very rare (or ...

The Stack Exchange Data Explorer (SEDE) can answer such questions for you. Fortunately someone's already written such a query. In fact quite a lot of people did so you can pick any of those queries that work for you and run them. The query itself would look something like this... SELECT u.Id, u.DisplayName, COUNT(*) AS NumPosts FROM Posts p INNER JOIN ...

You are tricked by the weekly SEDE refresh. The databases for all sites are refreshed one-by-one starting at Sunday 03:00 UTC. That takes a while. To be precise, it took till 10:08:06 UTC until the last database, which happens to be Stack Overflow, was complete. You posted your question on 10:14:49 UTC. Your screenshot and current SEDE result set confirm ...

Thanks for pointing this out - you've got sharp eyes! I saw the GIF this morning on Twitter and didn't notice. We won't be fixing this specific image but we've made sure that the people creating these images have up-to-date versions of our logos and other digital assets, so hopefully we won't see this again. It's pretty amazing how the old logo likes to pop ...

For me, it was Adblock Plus that was preventing the login. I disabled it temporarily, logged in, and everything works. Chrome Version 87.0.4280.88 (Official Build) (x86_64) macOS 11.0.1

The bounty on this question was started by the hacker on September 5th, and has already expired, so you cannot get your points back. I advise changing the password on all your accounts currently using the hacked password, make the new one more secure by adding various special characters, numbers etc., and be sure to keep it safe.

The Stack Exchange Data Explorer has some information about deleted posts; this query says 17.3M questions have been asked in that period 5.3M of those questions are currently deleted Deletion reasons aren't recorded there; almost all information about deleted posts is stripped (spam/rude/abusive flags are one of the exceptions; still, having such a flag ...

We've had a site for database administrators a while, though it's possible that it didn't exist at the time of the original question (nor had anyone updated it in the interim). While it's not the site OP was likely thinking of at the time, it's probably the 'specialist' SE site they should consider.

You're getting results for all posts, not only questions. The first post in your search results is of an answer, that's what the "A:" prefix means. The second result is a question, indicated by the "Q:". If you would like questions only, then add is:q to your search and you will not see answers.

To be clear it's not showing the questions twice - it's actually showing you the question and then the answers to the question (if there are any). Search returns both questions and answers. If you want to only include questions in your results, then you can include a filter of is:question. You can see the Advanced Search options by clicking Advanced Search ...
