It's a part of Winterbash 2015 Starting now and going until the end of the day on Jan. 3, 2016, you'll once again be able to earn and show off hats for all sorts of things you're already doing across the Stack Exchange network.

The user's question on DBA is marked as duplicate of Craig's question and anonymous users are redirected to Craig's question. Hence you see question linked to Craig.

Yes! Not only is it permitted, it is actively encouraged. As the founder of Stack Exchange, Jeff Atwood, said long ago: I do it all the time! For example, when I ran into a nasty issue with Java exploits in Google Chrome when browsing for images, I documented that on Super User by asking and answering my own question. Now, others can benefit from my ...

Did you try the Help Center? It's spelled out under: What topics can I ask about here? You can also see previous discussions about the site scope here on Meta with the scope tag.

Only tags associated with questions or answers that were up- or down-voted in the current week (or month, or whatever time-period selected) are displayed on that page. The current week begins on 2013-11-17 at 00:00:00 UTC. Vidar hasn't gained or lost any reputation from up- or down-votes during the current week. His reputation so far has come from an ...

Automating flagging is something which you're almost never likely to see. If you feel that you're posting the same comment over & again - this userscript gives a popup with 6 configurable auto-comments, which you can easily click to insert. Reconfigure the comments to your most used boilerplate ones & you could save some hassle of retyping them ...

You got 2 rep points for accepting & 2 more for suggesting an edit that was approved. That's by design.

I have merged keyboard-shorcut into keyboard-shortcuts and made the former a synonym. I also copied over the old tag wiki, but feel free to make any modifications to it as necessary.

Do (did) you have any closed questions with 0 or negative score and no answers? There is an automatic cleanup of such questions. There's also the "roomba" which deletes low-scoring, unanswered, low view questions after a year. Also, if you have anything migrated to another site, the "stub" would be eventually deleted on the original site.

Questions are protected when a question keeps attracting low quality "answers" from new users. The Community user will do it automatically after the third downvoted answer post from a user with low reputation points has their answer deleted, or if it quickly attract five answers from low reputation users. The idea is to protect the site from "thanks" and "me ...

It seems to be because this has been implemented: Can we raise the bar for reputation for late answers to enter the review queue? Essentially, the definition of "new user" for that queue has been raised to 50 reputation points from 10.

These are some of our top tags which look like they need more/better guidance in the tag wiki excerpt: blogger dropbox facebook-pages github gmail google google-apps google-apps-script google-calendar google-contacts google-documents google-forms google-maps google-plus google-search google-spreadsheets outlook.com security trello tumblr twitter

Go to your profile. Click the "questions" tab to see your list of questions. Scroll to the bottom, and click "deleted recent questions". There you should see the questions that have been deleted "recently". I believe the definition of "recently" here is "within the last 60 days". More information at How does deleting work? What can cause a post to be ...

Every hour, the Community user finds a question with at least one answer, but none of the answers have a score greater than 0, and there's been no activity for 30 days or more. To gain exposure, it "bumps" them to the homepage, i.e., the main page of Web Apps, by making a silent edit. (Why it's called "bumping", I don't know. I prefer the similar "nudging", ...

I was the one that migrated the question. In retrospect, I probably should have left a comment as to why I made the decision, so for that, I apologize. You asked two sub-questions, and I will address them separately. Why was Wunderlist designed to not work in private browsing mode in Firefox? This first question, asking about the company's reasoning/...

Why can't I ask customer service-related questions? Because we don't know the answer. Oh sure, there might be some intrepid soul who has sailed these waters before, and come out alive. They might even be able to offer some insight. There might even be the occasional employee wandering these hallowed halls. But here's the problem: We're not Google, ...

That question was autoprotected by the system for having 3 spam/non-answer posts added to it back in 2017. The reason the answer box wasn't available was that the system requires you to have 10 reputation on a site (reference, this does not include your association bonus) to answer a protected question. That being said, there's no reason to continue to ...

We don't create these links until the election actually begins, which it did today. Part of the election process is updating them to the correct links, which has been done.

I see two (fairly old) deleted questions on the account, these are what's contributing to the issue. Those are contributing to the warning you are seeing. Note that we now have warnings - letting you give proper thought to your next question, before a ban goes into effect.

It met the auto-delete criteria: From https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/92006/133693 Just to formally document the exact policies we have in place to remove old abandoned / dead questions, the Community user will delete questions in the following circumstances: If the question is more than 30 days old, and ... has −1 or lower score has ...

I have merged the two tags and left google-hangout as a synonym of google-plus-hangouts. hangout, which was originally a synonym of google-hangout will now point at google-plus-hangouts

The question was flagged by users as not an answer, probably because of how it was phrased. The title of the question asked for modification while body also indicated requests for video deletion. I'm guessing everyone had the same thought that the main drive for the question was moving videos around (which was pretty nifty) and not the deletion feature. ...

The simplest solution would be for someone to retag one question with onedrive then we can merge the tags. This will have the effect of retagging the rest of the questions tagged skydrive and automatically convert "skydrive" to "onedrive" when anyone uses it on a new question. This has now been done.

You are up-voting an anonymous user with your username because you registered with Web Applications (2013-06-10 13:05:19Z) after the migration (2013-06-10 13:00:52Z). Comments aren't given the same priority for user association during migration [1]

There is one: inbox-by-gmail. Generally speaking, we only create tags when there are questions to put it on. The system doesn't allow for tags to be created ahead of time.
