Posting affiliate links on someone else's web site is kind of scammy, in my opinion. You're not paying the bills here, Stack Exchange is. They have the right to delete them or change them to their own affiliate account so that they can offset the cost of hosting content. This was suggested in 2008 and implemented in 2009. Also, the question you answered is ...

Stack Exchange isn't a social network, it's a Q&A site. There is no value to knowing that user53168 visited your profile as you cannot contact them or do anything of value with that information. Also, voting is anonymous, so there is no way to know who has voted. Again, there is no benefit to knowing this, there are only negatives ("oh, user76436 voted ...

Well not directly. You could get yourself up to 10,000 reputation which will allow you to view deleted posts (among other things). However, if that comment itself was deleted then no, you wouldn't have the ability to view that comment. Moderators have the ability to view deleted comments, but that's not something included in the 10k tools.

Initially it was protected. Mostly because of off-topic answers being left. But protecting doesn't, and didn't prevent it getting comments. The only way to prevent comments is to lock the post down completely. And I can tell you - It was getting a lot of comments. Not just on that question but on the answers too. This isn't a discussion forum, it's a Q&...

Seems that https://ux.stackexchange.com/content/balsamiq/mockups-web.swf is 404. Friends at StackExchange, let us know if you need any assitance fixing this. Maybe it's time to update the integration? We've come a long way since the version you have today. Email me at peldi@balsamiq.com if you'd like to chat!

Reading the audit trail of actions on that post it appears that there were lots of flags raised on many comments in that post. Several comments have been deleted (and I've now deleted several more) to clean the whole thing up and that particular comment was edited instead of being deleted because it was relevant but confrontational in nature. I disagree ...

The skipped question goes back into the review queue for other users. It's just hidden from your own queue. (Source: @Mayo and I just tested this out.) Skipping when you're not sure what to do is encouraged by the community.

Go to your reputation view in your profile: https://ux.stackexchange.com/users/58102/bdd?tab=reputation And tick the 'Show removed posts' checkbox at the bottom. In regards this particular case though - you had edited some posts a while back that were closed as off-topic, and the posts have been automatically deleted as part of the regular site cleanup ...

This question is really up to your team and your customer. Not really a good fit for UX.SE, since we can't guess what your customer wants. So head over to your project lead and ask what you should do with the features...

You can flag any question and use the reason of "needs moderator attention". That opens up a text field where you can explain what you think the issue is. Flagging is anonymous so nobody (except the site moderators) will even know the post has been flagged.

This is a known issue. The fact that the red dot appears means that there are actually still pending reviews to be completed. However, for some reasons, you can't get those review items. Based on the report on Meta SE: Please don't show the red dot indicator for review items I can't do, As a result, there are various circumstances where the review ...

That would be something more for the graphic design site than the UX site. You could also try using something like FontBook to narrow down the font characteristics and then browse through whichever fonts are left until you find the right one.

Go to your profile page (clicking your avatar / score in the top bar) and then choose the 'Activity' link at the top of your page. There you will see the Impact panel, or the right. There is a link showing how many helpful flags you have raised, if you click that it'll take you to a dedicated page showing the flags you raised and how they were handled (or ...

See my edit (you may have to click "side-by-side markdown" in order to see the important change). The "section" that should be left alone is everything from "begin mockup" to "end mockup". However, you inserted text before then "end mockup" part, and thus this section no longer had the expected format. I've moved the <!-- End mockup --> part up to ...

As pointed out by Daedalus in the comments: ...unless I'm reading the wrong agreement, you aren't allowed to do that on site you don't own. Here are some of the relevant parts of Amazon.com's Associates Program Operating Agreement that support that (additional bold emphasis mine): “Your site” means any site(s) and software application(s) that you own ...

I checked my pop up blocker and it turned out that was blocking the pop up that checks if you really want to answer your own question. Once turned off it allows me to answer my own question with no problems.

This should now be resolved and the fix is live across all sites. Sorry for the inconvenience; I broke it when modifying how the Markdown editor worked for Stack Snippets.

That question has since been deleted so can only be viewed by users with +10k rep on StackOverflow. I am not such a user, however looking at the title of it: What are some funny loading statements to keep users amused I would say that no, it's not suited to UX StackExchange. Or any Stack site really. 'What are some' questions, just like "Can I have ...

Question get protected either automatically, or manually by a moderator if they have been attracting low-quality answers. In most cases these questions will have several deleted answers from people who have posted spam / brief opinion-based one-liners (such as 'I like X because it looks nicest.' which helps nobody) or they attract lots of duplicate posts ...

It's not a bug since it's a moderator only option to migrate the question away to another site. Often we communicate with the receiving site mods to know if they want it, think it suits their site objective and is as well written as it's supposed to be. Your job could be to suggest move to another site using the comment on close vote.

It's still possible, but hidden. From No option to upload image from URL anymore, We currently don't have an explicit entry point for this, but you can paste an image link when the uploader UX is showing. We will be updating the experience to add an explicit link to upload via URL. That is coming soon. However, this is still an issue with touch devices as ...

It's awarded to the oldest answer (posted within the bounty period). From the Help Center article What is a bounty?

You need to access the 'Questions' menu on the left-hand side (or just go to https://ux.stackexchange.com/questions). Then you can get some extra filter options from there. Such as to this page: https://ux.stackexchange.com/questions?tab=Votes

In the past your questions were very brief and were closed due to lack of research undertaken before being asked or were migrated to other stack exchange sites (where they were often closed off too for the same reason). That was a while ago though so provided you stick to the guidance outlined in the HELP section you should be OK. But if more questions are ...

Every site in the .SE network have Three "custom closing" reasons, where migration may very well fit. In our community we have decided that migration isn't the priority here. It was decided with the question So, what exactly is off-topic for UX.StackExchange? posted in June last year. The migration option is a strict moderator activity, which can be hard to ...

UX StackExchange doesn't use syntax highlighting, no. UX is technology agnostic and doesn't really focus on the implementation side of things. We're not about how to do something, we're about what should be done. Once it's been decided what the best UX approach to take is then it's up to the poster to go and figure out how to do it (or venture over to ...

You need to have earned 10 reputation on this site in order to provide an answer to the question. Although you have 101 rep overall you have not contributed any upvoted content to the site so have not received any reputation here. This is because every Stack Exchange site is different and has different requirements of answers. Just because you may have ...

There are a few options for you, depending on the type of question you have. If it's about colors, different color space, RGB or CMYK color model, transparent color, using or changing colors then probably Graphic Design Stack Exchange is the best place for you. Here is a list of the questions on Graphic Design Stack Exchange tagged COLOR. If it's about ...
