The recent change to post notices does not change which posts are visible. It changes what information about their closure is visible. When you're logged in, you've probably seen text in post notices like: (Viewable by the post author and users with the close/reopen votes privilege) That text is referring to some of the information in the post notice ...

Call me crazy, but I find this: Far more useful, practical, clear and easy to use than this: In the second image, all the useful functions apart from Open and Save are hidden away behind menus. I now have to figure out what the icons mean, then click on them, then navigate the drop down menus and finally find whatever I was looking for. I don't use gedit, ...

This is because you are ignoring one (or more) of the questions tags, just hover over the tags to see which one(s).

status-declined If you are posting on Ask Ubuntu, it's implied you're using Ubuntu or an official variant of Ubuntu. That's why we don't have an ubuntu tag - it's superfluous. Use the version tag to identify your version of Ubuntu if the question is specific to that version, and only tag variants of Ubuntu if you are not using Ubuntu Desktop or Server - ...

It's not just your questions that would be useful to have fast access to. It's also your answers, and your favorites (i.e., questions you have starred), and the list of all actions that you have done on the site, and the list of all your accounts across the Stack Exchange network, and so forth. That's why your profile exists and why no page on Ask Ubuntu is ...

Using Chromium 38.0.2125.111 I can't award the bounty, but I tried it in Firefox 33.0 on the same machine and it worked fine.

There's no option, but you can instruct your browser to do it. Install the Stylish extension (Chrome, Firefox). In Firefox, you can use this code: @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml); @-moz-document domain("askubuntu.com") { div#custom-header { display:none !important; } } In Chrome, enter the following code, and specify that it ...

The second line of text in the yellow box above the review area is supposed to explain what you're doing in this case, though I can understand if a lot of people skim it in preference of the bright red buttons. A brief explanation, for those who may be unaware (skip past the bullet points if you're familiar with this): When you are the person whose post ...

Yees, I'm totally agree! When there is only one button, usually it is a Confirm (positive action) button. The first time, when I opened the screenshot, I didn't read anything, I just saw Next or Skip button or something like that. Something more it sounds or looks like this case is against the latest SE's policy of kindness. Here we can't agree with the ...

I think we might have stumbled upon something here. From HuHa's comment: According to EU law, the default setting needs to be essential cookies, but they overlooked that all such banners provide a big fat "accept all" button and then a "settings" button where you have to click multiple times to get rid of the banner without accepting all ...

I don't like cookies. My browser is set to discard them after it is closed. As a web developer, that seems like a slightly absurd overreaction, but each to their own. It obviously means a site can't remember your preferences, let alone things like sessions and logins. I think you know that. If you visit a site a lot, it might be worth using something like ...

Thanks for bringing this up. I cannot reproduce the issue in the current build of our network sites. The layout for mobile has also changed considerably in the last 2 years. If you experience further issues please do not hesitate to report bugs.

I have created a user-script and added a post for it on stackapps Replace all relative times with local times For info on how to install user-scripts in different browsers, check the info of the script tag in stackapps . The script will replace the relative dates with your local date after hovering over a date. I made it like that, because sometimes the ...
