Users with 10 or more reputation can answer a protected question. However, the +100 account association bonus is ignored for this check, so you must have earned 10 or more reputation on that specific site to answer a protected question.
Another possibility is that you have previously downvoted answers which were subsequently deleted. In that case, the downvotes cost you 1 rep each, but there is no indication after the post has been deleted which post deletion caused your reputation to be returned to you. Thus you can get a positive reputation change with no obvious explanation.
The number you see on the achievement bar before it is expanded is not the reputation you have gained today, it is the reputation change since you last checked it.
So one example of how this could happend is if you made two edits yesterday (earning you a total of +4), then get one downvote today (earning youg -2). That gives you a -2 today, but 4 - 2 = +2 ...
This usually happens when posts and suggested edits are attributed to the Community user (as part of the procedure followed when deleting a user). This will eventually be fixed by a scheduled task and the reputation will go back to 1.
I checked Stack Exchange Meta, and the problem has an explanation there: Site icons jumbled up
The problem is fixed now, at least for me. I had to clear the cache to get the right ones back, though. So if the problem persists for you, try that. So case closed, I guess.
If you use the @ to tag the name of the person who posted the question or answer it will be stripped out automatically as it is unnecessary. They will be notified anyway.
Once you start typing a name after the @ sign autocomplete depends on how long ago that user was there, I think. Certainly just typing @ shouldn't suggest a name until you start typing ...
The specification is very... specific, and it is given in the post describing how to submit adverts.
It must be 220x250 pixels - retina is not even vaguely relevant here. "With Retina support" does not make your image 220x250. It is 440x500. The image itself needs to be exactly the right size in pixels
Yes, it must be a GIF or PNG
Those two aren't ...
I think this should be fixed and the icons should be matched.
There is no good reason why the logos have to look completely different, given that they don't even visibly differ in their size (the 48x48 logo just has more blank space around it while the 32x32 one actually even appears slightly bigger). Sec.SE seems to be the only site that has entirely ...
I'm not sure that this limitation still applies when you are over 2000 rep. (I didn't checked it, but I think I may have made such small changes in a question while posting an answer or while modifying another post more substantially, that it to say when the post would be brought to the front-page anyway).
Below 2000 rep., do not forget that you edit will ...
For me, all of page 9 is all 23 votes with some 22 votes at the bottom, page 10 is 22 votes except for a couple at the bottom on 21 votes, and page 11 is all 21 votes with some 20 votes at the bottom.
I have tested just now on Chrome 36 and IE 8 (I know - I just had an image with IE 8 ready)
You must have something set oddly. Are you on Unanswered, or one ...
I feel your pain. I also did a lot of edits before I reached 2 000, and bumping into this restriction can be very annoying. But even if your edits are correct and good and worth the time of reviewers, others might not be. Removing the restriction would open up the doors for rep gamers who see an easy path to magitc internet points by making tiny changes of ...
Yes - the simple answer is that you should search for more errors.
While an incorrect "its" or "it's" makes my OCD twitch, your energy is best used somewhere where you can fix more than one or two minor grammatical or spelling mistakes.
If there is nothing else wrong with the post, I'd suggest just leaving it. Edits that are too minor are likely to be ...
It looks like this is outside the scope of our site. This image is not owned by us but a third party (I think https://github.com/51cards/Stack-Exchange-Bounty-Ad).
As far as why the information is wrong, I would blame caching. There was a point when this information was true. There were two bounties worth 550. Then two more bounties were added bringing ...
As @Xavier59 and @AviD explains in comments, this is not a bug.
When a moderator converts an answer to a comment, all the comments to the answer are moved along with it. In this case the moderator didn't notice the autocomment, and it was automatically moved to the question. So nothing strange going on at all.
If you have found what you consider to be a vulnerability please use the Contact Us link at the bottom of every page and provide SE with details.
I'm not sure what you are describing is a vulnerability, though.
Be aware that the Stack Exchange sites that allow code snippets are very much for people who will notice, and review the code to see if it suits ...
When I look at the page, I see 38 reviews pending in the Close Vote review queue. (You might be able to see this by yourself by opening a private/incognito window and navigate to https://security.stackexchange.com/review. )
But if you've skipped those 38 review items, the queue will appear empty to you.
The red dot is not cached on user level, that would be ...
My first thought was that you were at rank change, but your code snippet shows something else. This appears to be a bug that's currently unsolved. It seems to not actually touch your reputation, see Where has my 24922 rep gone? at the SEmeta site.
From StackOverflow help
To avoid overly promotional bounties, if you are offering a bounty on a question that you have already posted an answer to, your minimum spend is 100 reputation (not 50).
You don't have the reputation needed for 100 yet
I'm not sure that qualifying these links of "very hard" to distinguish is the right term, at least not on a general basis.
However, where I agree with you is that depending on the screen settings and potential visual limitations affecting the reader, these links may indeed be hard to distinguish from normal text.
That's the reason why often visual ...
