If we told you, we'd have to kill you. No, it's not drastically different. There are just a few mod links in different places that pop up dialogues to allow us do things like merging, locking (etc) that aren't in the standard close/delete menus. I'd show you these but they're really very dull. Edit: I'm adding some screenshots of some of the screens. Most ...

If you want to get a real insight into the daily work of the moderators, the moderator newsletter is available to everyone. It talks about all of the new features, changes in policy and so on. Moderator Community Blog The site get more features the more reputation you earn. To a moderator, the site looks more or less like it does to a user with 10,000 ...

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!

As per your request, this is what chat.stackexchange.com looks like to a moderator: Room owner and moderator controls: We (as moderators) can put a room into a timeout - this is generally used for a short period of time as a "hey guys, you're waaayyyy off topic, so lets take a minute to cool down and then we can move on". We can freeze a room - this means ...

The fix will be in the next production build.

When something is closed as a duplicate a header appears at the top of the post like: Possible Duplicate: link That wouldn't stop somebody editing the post to remove it (maliciously or otherwise) but if you check the edit logs (click the "edited ..." link at the bottom of the post) you should be able to see what's happening. If you still can't find it, ...

That would be awesome! (Supporters upvote. Those who are against upvote the other option)

You can just post links to the images and a higher reputation-ed users will convert them in to images.

This is already implemented as far as I know The editing race - the slackers always win

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 ...

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.

Just press Ctrl + G to insert an image. The image can be from your PC or a link in the internet. Or click the img button to insert an image like this:

It is for anonymous users to vote on the quality of a post. It gathers opinions from people with no account or little rep in a way that doesn't affect the user or the poster's reputation. Source: Anonymous user feedback now in testing

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 ...

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

Large with circles are Questions. Small with squares are Answers. Orange = no answers Green = Accepted answer, or has an accepted answer. Also if the title is orange it means you already clicked on that link.

Click the "mobile" link at the bottom of the main page. Great mobile version of the site with support for posting.

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 are plenty of mobile apps (and other cool tools) for this site here: https://stackapps.com/

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.

As indicated in comments this has been fixed and can be considered as answered.

Another way to see the votes remaining is hover the cursor over the down tick button on the name of a user. It will show, how many votes the user has already given. Subtract this number from 40 if the votes on questions are 1:3 in ratio with answer. Subtract this from 30 otherwise. As this answer suggests.

Your profile shows the number of votes you've cast today. This and other voting totals are tallied at the lower-right corner of the summary tab, even though they're not shown in the votes tab itself. For example, this is what that looks like right now, for my meta user: Subtract that number from 40, and that's how many votes you have left today.

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.

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 ...

Depends on the sorting you choose, Votes, oldest or active. Look top right above the answers

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 ...
