He has the association bonus from having ,more than 200 reputation on SO. This is as designed. From the help pages If you are an experienced Stack Exchange network user with 200 or more reputation on at least one site, you will receive a starting +100 reputation bonus to get you past basic new user restrictions. This will happen automatically on all ...

If you earn 125 reputation the limit will be removed. The reason for this limit is to reduce spam questions, there is no chance it will be removed permanently. It is not disrespecting anyone, in fact it is improving the quality of the content on the site. If you really want to take this further you need to post on meta.stackexchange.com but it won't go ...

It never goes below -1 (well, except when you add a downvote, but that clears out on refreshing) See Election primary vote count is no lower than -1 It was decided to be too cruel to display a person as having a score less than 0.

First of all, no, you should not downvote duplicates just because they are duplicates! Duplicates are useful because they help direct users to the right answer. The search functionality of the site is, um, well, less than perfect. It is not easy for experienced users to find dupes, let alone new ones. So no, please don't downvote dupes just because they're ...

No answer on that post has a bounty awarded to it yet. There's just an ongoing bounty on it, but it was started by another user, and not the one who wrote those posts. This is perfectly fine - both answering your own questions, and offering bounties on existing posts by other users are OK. Even if Fabby were to offer a bounty on his question, he wouldn't be ...

status-bydesign on both the badge and reputation counts. The Badge Keep in mind that the requirements for the Copy Editor Badge are as follows (bold emphasis mine): Edit 500 posts (excluding own or deleted posts and tag edits) If you look at your reputation tab you'll note that there are a number of deleted posts that correspond to the edits you made. ...

Fixed it for you. And no, this is not a bug, but how Markdown works. The key thing is to indent one level further and use a 4-space indent, so make it 8 spaces to indent. See also the Markdown syntax: To put a code block within a list item, the code block needs to be indented twice — 8 spaces or two tabs: * A list item with a code block: ...

You can't retract the flag because it has already been processed. Once the flag has been processed (and marked "helpful" or been declined), there's no way to retract the flag. The flag in question has already been marked as "helpful", and is no longer eligible for being retracted. You can see your list of pending, helpful, and declined flags (as well as ...

It works fine for me. Note that this is the title, not the alt text. The text in the "enter image description" part is the alt text, used when the image couldn't be shown. The title is shown when you mouseover the link, and in markdown looks like so (foo in this example): [enter link description here][1] [1]: http://example.com "foo" enter link ...

A few days ago you lost a sizeable chunk of rep due to a user being removed. See May 25th. When you lose reputation, due to downvotes or vote reversals of any sort, we don't show you reputation increases again until your reputation earnings have exceeded your reputation loss. This is because we show your net reputation change and we do not show negative ...

Yeah you only get reputation for suggested edits that pass through the review system. And only up to a limit of 1k reputation. After you reach 2k, your edits are no longer suggested edits, they're just edits. This is purposely so newer, less confident users can earn some reputation to get going.

This has to do with the age of the post and is in fact happening by design. When it was created in December 2018, Stack Exchange didn't support ``` code fences. It did, however, support ``` as a way of entering inline code with like breaks. That's what the answer in question was doing, purely by accident. In January 2019, we added support for code blocks ...

Feel free in the future to "reject" edits like this as an "invalid edit" (or even "vandalism" if it really massacres the original content). From the brilliant Jorge: it is a review audit to see if you pay attention! So you would have passed if you followed my answer :-D

You need to have more than 75 reputation.

Would you think it a problem if this were rounded up (2:01 hours => 3 hours, for example)? If you wouldn't, someone would. We had to pick something (given limited screen real-estate), so that's what we picked.

Nope, sorry. At least, this isn't something that moderators can do and I would expect it would only be possible if an SE employee were to manually edit the database. That's really a lot of work for something very minor and I really doubt they'd be willing to do it.

At the beginning of a period--whether it be a week, month, or quarter--the stats for that period go back to zero, because they applied to the previous period, which has just ended. This is probably the only reasonable way those stats could be displayed, but I've found it confusing as well, because when one week, month, or quarter is considered to end is sort ...

There could be several possible reasons for this. But I think, for your particular case, the main reason could be the number of suggested edits got rejected. If you have many suggested edits rejected, you will be blocked for submitting more edits. See this relevant question on meta stack overflow : Why is the edit buttons disabled? You might also want to ...

Obviously, posts live long and complicated lives, involving a great many actions beyond /review; you can find most of them documented in the revision history on the post itself. While it can be a bit confusing, the status shown on the review task indicates only actions taken from folks reviewing. Since the goal of review is to bring additional attention to ...

From the comments looks like you are trying to post: "Have a look at my answer 'answer link here'". Notice the text "Trivial answer converted to comment". If you believe this answers the question you could post a overview of what the answer is. Extra info related to the specific question, or if the answers are exact maybe the question is a duplicate. ...

Your answer was too short (it really should have been a comment) that the system auto converted it. Notice the text under the comment: Trivial answer converted to comment

There are a few things going on here: The server will allow submissions up to 4 hours after closure. The client-side javascript polls the server for question status roughly once every 45 seconds. If it sees the closure, it disables the form. Unless, that is, you've been writing long enough to have saved a draft. You might get a notice saying that the ...

Most important thing to keep in mind is this: Once you get a privilege at a certain reputation level, it is possible to lose the privilege if you drop below that reputation level. This happens more often than you would think, unfortunately, so it's not uncommon to see this happen. You currently have 243 reputation points. You need 250 to get the ...

Only moderators have access to this particular filter; 10K users can view all reviews (except for skipped) for a given queue and their own reviews for a given queue (optionally including skipped). The purpose of the per-user filter (which was originally moderator-only) was to allow folks to, uh, review their own reviews. See: Can our Review History also ...

I believe the best possible outcome for you is to hope for the anonymous edit suggestion to get rejected so that you can suggest from your account once more (I have rejected it). That said, in my honest opinion, this edit suggestion is completely superfluous, and it doesn't help improving the readability of the post. I myself would reject similar edit ...

Until such time as you gain 125 reputation from the site (and therefore have your New User Limits removed here on Ask Ubuntu) you cannot post more than 1 question every 40 minutes on the site and its meta site (and this will apply anywhere across the StackExchange network where you do not have the requisite 125 rep on those specific sites). This is inbuilt ...

That is not a bug, it is by design. What is happening is you are posting a very short answer with a link and the system is picking that up automatically as a low quality / link only answer. When you post a link answer you MUST include the relevant content from the link in the answer and leave the link as a reference. To be fair to you, I had no idea this ...
