Depends. In the specific case you cite, Reject and Edit would have been the correct choice. In general, I'd always replace shortened URLs with the corresponding elongated versions as that helps users to have a rough idea of where the link is pointing to if they hover their mouse over it. Now your particular issue seems to boil down to "how should I check ...

Is the accept sign automatically removed when a question is deleted? As @quid notes in the comments, new deletions do remove the accept sign. It used to be different before 2012, when interestingly, the deletion causes the accepted answer to not show up at the top anymore. Does this include the +15 reputation point for accepted answer, or are these ...

I talk a bit about the process in this feature request and this answer, but moderators have the ability to delete accounts such that they start building a network-wide IP block. This kicks in rapidly on specific IPs, and also intelligently starts blocking accounts across subnets for "snowshoe" spammers, trolls, and question-ban-evaders. This person may have ...

Yes, duplicate questions can be deleted. It seems you're confused by different points in the FAQ about deletion. You say your post was deleted with the reason of: deleted by Community♦ 10 hours ago (RemoveDeadQuestions) RemoveDeadQuestions is mentioned in the FAQ as being used for deleted questions meeting the criteria under point 9: The system ...

It seems to me that there are two issues: "With 1 or more starred" is a prepositional phrase that some are interpreting differently The word "starred" is uncommonly used in English How about we rephrase the statement to avoid those two issues reduce the amount of ambiguity? Post 10 messages in chat, with at least one receiving a star. My statement is ...

In this particular case, you can replace tinyurl.com with preview.tinyurl.com. This will show you what site it is going to redirect to. In this particular example, you can see that both of the allegedly malicious links redirect to Amazon. If it's ever not as obvious, you can safely visit the link by prepending view-source: to it. That will cause the browser ...

It is the correct link: https://meta.stackexchange.com/feeds/question/328187 The RSS URL is shown under the Hot Network Questions widget on each Q&A page:

One of our ISP links to the NY data center was flapping which meant any traffic in or out of the data center to certain parts of the world was not being routed correctly. For now we've disabled that link and all traffic is being routed over our other ISPs

One of our ISP links to the NY data center was flapping which meant any traffic in or out of the data center to certain parts of the world was not being routed correctly. That affected our connectivity to Imgur who hosts our images. For now we've disabled that link and all traffic is being routed over our other ISPs

You add them one at a time, using the upload link, uploading, and repeating per image. There's no 'bulk' upload option. I suspect at very low rep levels, the 8 link maximum is in play, but it's slightly unlikely you'd hit that maximum.

As pointed out in the comments by Jon Clements and Sonic the Inclusive Hedgehog: it's not possible, and not likely to be implemented either. Non-mods can see a comment has been edited (and how many times) but not what any past revisions were. The revision history [itself] is only visible to mods... ...and as per the moderator agreement, they are ...

Find out the chat events you are getting the notifications for (from your inbox), visit the info pages of corresponding chat rooms and cancel your registrations. Say you had previously registered for the Happy Hour event in Tavern on the Meta. Then click on the cancel your registration button from the schedule tab.

Here you go: SELECT t.TagName, COUNT(DISTINCT(p.Id)) FROM Tags AS t INNER JOIN PostTags AS pt ON t.Id = pt.TagId INNER JOIN Posts AS p ON p.Id = pt.PostId WHERE p.AnswerCount = 0 GROUP BY t.TagName ORDER BY COUNT(DISTINCT(p.Id)) DESC Feel free to fork the query to experiment. You might be interested in the awesome tutorial as well.

Practically - drop the cm team a line through the contact us link. Assuming you have too much activity on the site for automatic account deletion, someone will need to look through your account, dissociate votes and so on And sometimes things slip through the cracks.

On some sites, new users can't post images at all. In that case, you can upload them externally (e.g. via https://imgur.com/) and link to the images in your question. If you're lucky, another user with enough reputation will read your question and 'inline' the images.

Seems like message after the last vote is successfully applied is blue. But when you try to vote above the limit the message is red.

TL;DR: it's not relevant. One vote is enough. I don't think it's related to the amount. Also, the sock account is deleted or merged with the main account, and the suspension is applied to the main account, otherwise it's pointless. Once a moderator finds out about a sock abusing votes, the action would be instant, whether it was one vote or 1000 votes. ...

I am testing the formatting for numbered lists that seem malformed when an element has no text eg: foo bar1 bar2 possible fix: foo bar1 bar note the wrong number after the empty element (needs to be fixed by hand)

No it doesn't, and the request has been declined: Change all @username references in comments when a user changes their name? It would be easy to implement. When the comment is written that user name becomes permanent in the comment, clicking the old name still takes one to the correct account with the new username. There's no reason for old comments to ...

The User Agent header needs love. This curl statement works for me and returns the html content of the moderators page: curl -A "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64)" https://stackoverflow.com/users?tab=moderators While using your User Agent: curl -A "Java/1.7.0_55" https://stackoverflow.com/users?tab=moderators <html><head><title&...

There is a simple, if unintuitive way to do this. End a line with a backslash or two spaces and the next line will appear on a new line. Unfortunately, StackExchange's Markdown implementation only supports the two space version, but you can see both in action at GitHub here. Line breaks using backslashes * List item * Indented list item 1\ item 1 ...
