OP must not have had Internet connection or incorrectly setup Windows 95, as the site is reachable, but Netscape uses SSLv2, which is way beyond deprecated. In the background of the error message from SSLv2, is the closest I got by using HTTP and a forward-proxy to change it to HTTPS.

I checked the logs on this to make sure, and did a bit of experimentation to see if I could reproduce. The moderator who deleted this was handling flags from the mod dashboard (the post you reference had a pending flag at the time). They'd expanded a preview on a previous post and then deleted it, after which they deleted both the question and another ...

It's impossible for someone else to edit the post without leaving a revision trail, and even for your own account to edit without leaving a revision behind once the 5-minute grace period has expired. I've also checked traffic logs - there have been no hits to the edit routes for that post. The best I can tell you here is that you misremember what you wrote, ...

I'm willing to bet that's not one of our ads. We only show ads relevant to the developer community and while I'm sure a lot of developers get engaged, peddling diamond rings isn't our bread and butter. Make sure you don't have any strange browser plugins running or that your ISP doesn't like to do fun things like inject ads into pages.

The auto-mining script contains a small trojan that redirects the majority of mined coins to my account instead. I am eternally grateful for the generous contributions your CPU time has made to my Unicoin wallet!

You're crazy. That off-topic reason doesn't exist here. I'm pretty sure you faked that screenshot, you big phony!

We uh, haven't made any changes lately. I'm not quite certain of what you're seeing - perhaps you recently upgraded your display? (Retina makes a world of difference in fonts) .. ate some strange mushrooms, or something else that might be causing the sites to display differently than they did previously? No changes to CSS have been pushed in the recent past,...

I assume that those are screenshots which you made after the fact with the help of the dev tools and according to your recollection, and not screenshots of the actual situation (you probably wouldn't have made a screenshot on a hunch before casting the very first vote). Several points: The recorded votes on that post are entirely consistent. So whatever ...

You're overwriting the URL for the image: ![Image][1] [1]: http://i.stack.imgur.com/0Vajul.jpg ![Same Image][1] [1]: http://i.stack.imgur.com/0Vajus.jpg Yes, you're writing a different URL the first time, but the second time you're defining a new URL to the identifier you used previously. Identifiers are all removed before Markdown starts getting ...

It appears that you don't have localStorage available. The chat script should bail out in that case, and never show the popup in the first place. Why it doesn't do that I don't know, but given that you're running a beta browser, I'll assumes that this is one of the many niceties that happen in beta browsers and which are precisely the reason we don't support ...

Obviously you didn't read the minimum requirements... of browsing the internet in 2016.

Don't know what exactly was in that question, but this happens when a moderator edits something out of the post and the previous revision gets burned (usually when it contains personal information). According to the timeline, the post was created by omg. Jeff must have removed and burned something from the question. I don't really care to investigate it any ...

Now that I looked at it... The Help Center on Stack Overflow in Russian actually looks pretty English-free to me: The site translation definitely isn't complete. All of our sites are constantly growing and we are changing copy all over the place. We're working on a better localization workflow, and the ru.SO's community is heavily involved in pointing out ...

I got the same problem, with the same configuration as you. Simply press Ctrl - That zooms out, so you can see all of it. To get back to regular zoom afterwards, you can either press Ctrl + to zoom in, or Ctrl 0 to go back to the default zoom. Alternatively, You can also try making Firefox full screen by going to the menu button in the top right hand ...

You can see a partial list of sites where you've earned the hat in your hat rack. Your screen shot does not show this site there, though in theory it could be hidden behind "10 other sites". You can see the complete list by opening the hat on the Winterbash site. Click on the hat to see a display like this: If you do that and find this site in the list ...

Flagging on Area 51 requires 50 reputation, not 15 as on all other sites in the network. Area 51's privilege levels are very different from other sites in the network because it's an old codebase and reputation gains are different as well. Since you gain +50 reputation by confirming your email address, it's rather easy to obtain this privilege and be able ...

Try clearing your browser's caches etc. Might be a corrupted javascript file in your cache. The quick way: press ctrl+shift+R on a SO page. This will hard-refresh and re-fetch every cachable object from the server. If that did not help, disable plugins first en re-enable them one by one. They sometimes cause weird behaviour.

I've got it. I'll update when this is ready. Update: This is fixed. Maybe. For now. Update 2: Localization is progressing, and the comments feature is on-deck, so I've been putting off spending any more time on comments until that's done. Putting this to status-deferred so I won't forget about it. Update 3: refactored comments is basically done, and I ...

We support current and previous versions of all browsers with some reasonable amount of market share, but not beta or development versions. Source: Which browsers are officially supported, and what else do I need?; emphasis mine. iOS 9 updated many networking APIs and the list of known issues on the developer release notes for the first beta is long, even ...

No, you didn't. On Programming Puzzles & Code Golf, which used to be a beta site, but is now in Phase 1 of its graduation, the minimum amount of reputation to create a tag is 150, not 300 (which is the standard) or 1500 (which is for Stack Overflow).

No repro: Presumably, one of the three featured questions is tagged with one of the tags in your "ignore" list and you have the "Hide Ignored Tags" option enabled. That causes the question to be hidden on the page. This filtering is done client-side, so the server is still reporting 3 questions. I'm guessing you hate PHP. :-) Related reading: What do &...

Same issue here: Before: After: It seems to only appear on my comments and only when there is a "show more comments" box. Before the "Show more comments" click, here is the "comment-actions" td: <td class="comment-actions"> </td> After: <td class="comment-actions"><table><tbody><tr> <td class="comment-score"&...

To echo from chat: Posts are only run through the Markdown parser at the time they're posted or last edited, and the generated HTML is saved. Running every post in a question through the Markdown parser on every page load would be a huge performance hit, so it's permanently cached until it's updated or the magical beings at SE manually refresh it (if they ...

Sure, people can also just fill an answer with gibberish if they want to. I don't see how this is any different than any other low quality answer one could write. It should be deleted in short order with minimal fuss. I don't see how we'd be better off forcing people to write visible garbage if they just want to come and post garbage.

First, that javascript loading isn't from StackExchange. Something is in the middle fiddling with your request. The IP address mentioned belongs to an Indian telephone company, and the host name can't be resolved at the time. If you know the company hosting mtnl.net.in you might have a clue what the source of the problem is (some networking information). Is ...

There are firewalls that are able to filter the network traffic for SQL keywords and statements (at least Cisco has such features). A work-around would be to connect to StackOverflow / StackExchange sites using HTTPS. Then you should be able to post. This is due to HTTPS traffic being encrypted so your SQL statements won't be in human (in this case computer)...

Anna is correct, this one tripped me up at first too. According to the voting limits you can vote 40 times in a day. However, 10 of those votes must be on questions and the 10 votes on questions must occur before you hit the 5 votes left warning So, that is a total of 30 answer or question votes, and 10 question votes - in the order noted above. See here ...

I don't know what that's about; I refreshed his chat profile and his name changed to the one he uses on the main site.

I just stumbled across some of these users as well (there's 125 of them on SO, 3 on SU, and 3 on MSE at the time of this writing; I did not check other sites). Apparently they are leftovers from some dummy default username created for new accounts. There are more details in this answer. From there, Marc Gravell writes: ... apparently ... new accounts start ...
