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, ...

Thank you for taking the time to post a suggestion. But this is already implemented!

The fix will be in the next production build.

I'm not sure there's a problem. The message is "please consider adding a comment if you think this post can be improved". What's the circumstance under which it's inappropriate to comment if you think a post can be improved? If you don't think a post can be improved, this isn't telling you to comment. Beyond that, it's important to consider that one might ...

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 ...

You simply can't. They'll be marked as read once you click the StackExchange notification and will remain there. It's was once a valid notification, and remains a notification to this day.

AFAIK, it is the decision of Stack Exchange team to encourage improvements in post, instead of just retagging it. Alternatively you can use this script for quickly retag: http://shog9.com/greasemonkey/scripts/so_quick_retag.user.js

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.

I don't think it's possible, looks like they modified the site layout. But you can send a feedback saying that you'd like to a button to activate and deactivate the top bar.

It appears they are still around under certain circumstances. I ran into one myself while editing a question. Not exactly the same thing you had but similar. I wonder if this has to do with some of the changes that have happened recently: Stack Exchange Inc has recently moved their data centers to another location in NYC. (There was a blog post ...

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 ...

Not all sites in the Stack Exchange network require the input of <kbd> codes and even though the space can look big if we included all the possible edit aids on the toolbar we would be out of it in no time. This can be added with the usage of some simple scripts if you desire.

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 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 ...

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.
