These ads have been reported and the possible funnel closed. OpenX was contacted and they have addressed the issue. Please let me know if you see them again.

According to the Imgur API documentation the s suffix actually means "small square" not "small thumbnail". This means the image is cropped to fit into a small square. You probably want to use the t suffix which only resizes the image. Here's the complete documentation on suffixes: There are 6 total thumbnails that an image can be resized to. Each one ...

We'd theorized that links taste better when blue, a subtle effect caused by a mental association with fake blueberry flavorings. But we were wrong. Instead, we got a pungent cyanobacteria aroma. The original link color has been restored. Details on Meta Stack Exchange

No, that kind of questions is very clearly off topic. We are primarily cooks here. Our common interest is food. We can not give medical advice, in fact, many questions of the “Is X healthy?” type are not answerable for medical professionals. The types of questions we will accept here are: Questions with a limited scope and measurable, scientifically ...

If you see a good post in the Low Quality review queue, simply click "Looks OK". Posts can be placed in the Low Quality review queue automatically by the system based on various heuristics, or by another user flagging them. It takes more "Looks OK" than "Recommend deletion" votes to remove it from the queue. Some such reviews are review audits, automated ...

No, it's not broken. See the page you linked about "privileges: set bounties": The reputation you're using for the bounty is immediately and irreversibly deducted from your reputation. The user must have had 121 reputation. The minute he placed the bounty, it dropped to 21. Note that the bounty points are forfeited whether you award the bounty or not....

Alas, that was not intentional but rather an oversight on my part. Should be fixed now.

I checked the suggested edit history and this seems to be an isolated problem. It is only one post on the site which has had these problems, and it happens to be yours. There does not seem to be a software bug anywhere, just a single person trying to game the system. "Anonymous user" just means that somebody who does not have an account on Seasoned advice ...

Ordinarily you would in fact see flagged posts and have the opportunity to flag, disagree, or (in the case of a question) vote to close. I can verify this on Stack Overflow, where I have the reputation but am not a moderator. My guess is that your flags don't show up in your view, precisely because you cannot act on them. The number icon, I'm also guessing,...

The link is there, and it is a brownish-reddish-orange after being clicked. Not a very high contrast, but it is visible, and even better visible for people who haven't been there and clicked it yet. This is a blown up version of the link after it has been clicked.

The number correctly indicated the number of active review tasks, though not the number of tasks that you, personally, were eligible to review. Checking each of them ahead of time to see if you're eligible to review them would be a lot of extra overhead, and the number could still be wrong in some cases.

Check your sort order: It's fine on my end.

I'm particularly fond of the third suggestion: make "m" the default size. I'm not sure if this is unique to mobile Firefox, or to my Galaxy S4, but I invariably have to change the image size in posts to the "m" size in order to see all the text. As you can see from the screenshot below, not only is the large image cropped to the right, but the text too! ...

Weird, looks like that character just flat out doesn't exist in latest Android. Not really sure how that happens. Anyway, we've got a slightly different arrow we use in other places that does work so starting with the next build the arrow in the top bar will be replaced with that.

As per my comment above, for future readers: Have you tried it with all add-ons disabled? Click Help => Restart with add-ons disabled. If that works, it must be some add-on. If it doesn't work, try creating a new profile. You can do this by clicking on Start => Run on XP, then copy-paste "D:\Programs\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p (include the ...

This will be fixed in the next build (after rev 2012.5.16.2574).

This problem no longer applies as there have been significant styling changes on that page.

That's just how it's always looked when you make a link on an image. The dotted line is the same as for text links, except for some reason displaced a line below the image. I agree it doesn't look great, and I'd love if they fixed it, but it's not a total accident.

It has been happening specifically to this thread (perhaps my post more than others, I don't know, but I do know that it has been happening to other posts on the same thread too). I have rejected a dozen or more spammy vandalism attempts in the past week or ten days, at least three or four times just today. It's really getting annoying. SAJ tried protecting ...

I see bad spam edits from time to time in the suggested edit queue. I have never really paid attention to who they target or the frequency; I just reject them and move on. I suspect what is happening is that when they happen to hit one of your posts, you get the notice, and so it is more apparent to you that this sometimes happens. As to why SA, and not ...

I think this makes sense, even if it's not the most clear language: it's saying that you raised that type of flag (a close-vote-ish flag) already, not that specific one. It's not telling mods you raised both of those flags, don't worry. And you can't vote to close a question for two different reasons, so it's pretty consistent that you also can't flag it ...

Yes, this behavior is intentional. The asker of a closed question may still accept an answer. Quoted from the answer on What is a "closed" or “on hold” question?.

This should be addressed now by the Bigger, Blacker Bar.
