I personally don't experience this, but I seem to have pretty good colour vision. I can imagine that with less-optimal colour vision, the difference may be insufficient. Not everyone's cones are as good as mine. An option to improve this would be to make the icon that is now grey a negative: grey outline, grey checkmark, white fill.

Ok, i tracked the problem down. It appears that the style sheet uses the local version of the font if present. For some reason Firefox does not recognize the boldness in this case. I am still trying to figure out if it is a problem with the CSS or if it is a bug in the firefox implementation or possibly version of font.

The hookup between the community ads meta post and the main site was missing. It is no longer missing.

Stack Exchange's HTTPS support is currently in an "alpha" state: it more or less works, but not all the quirks have been ironed out. One of the quirks is that the wildcard SSL certificate used by SE does not match the meta sites. This turns out to be caused by technical / historical limitations — you simply can't have a wildcard cert for a pattern ...

If you had gotten two upvotes, the reputation notifier would be at +20, as you only get 10 points per upvote. Instead you got 2 reputation for suggesting an edit to the question that was approved. You can see this (and other details on your reputation) here.

Fixed. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

There is actually a grace period of about 4 hours after a question is closed where answers will still be accepted (I'm not sure if the 4 hours is still accurate, but the grace period certainly still exists). If you're on the website there will be a banner telling you the question is closed and the button to post the answer will be disabled, but these are ...

We're working on this, but it's a little bit of a mystery. $Audience has been updated with the new blurb that you guys picked out. The footer pulls its text out of $Audience. It should show the correct blurb. But it doesn't. We told the site to reload itself and will see if that helps. Otherwise, we'll blame caching. (It's always caching.) I'll keep ...

Yeah, this is a known issue; imgur won't accept large images, and the upload UI doesn't handle failure particularly gracefully.

This was a problem network wide, it should be fixed now. This was a bug in pathing that should never be allowed to bring down question pages anyway - a fix has been deployed and I'll be preventing that code from causing such drastic issues ever again in my next commit.

EDIT: @CAI was right, it's not the last-child rule that's to blame for the weird lay-out. It's the fact that text in a li element is not seen as a li-element when the li has a ul nested inside of it. As suggested by @CAI in chat, this could be solved by adding a top-padding to nested ul's. I think this particular CSS is the culprit: .post-text ul li, .wmd-...

There could be some improvements to the CSS regarding nested lists. Currently the spacing between list items is more than the space between the nested lists first item and its parent list item, like this: Notice the space between 'outer_wall_window' and 'outer_wall_door' is more than the space between 'outer_wall_window' and it's parent 'outer_wall'. ...

My name is Josh and I'm a Senior Product Designer at Stack Overflow. Thank you for taking the time to report this issue. Congratulations! You've uncovered a network-wide bug. I have pushed a fix for this and it should be resolved with the next production build.

This is fixed, will be live after our next production build

Possibly a bug previously in Chrome, DA01 and I can no longer produce the issue.

I agree, I've changed the design to something lighter. It doesn't need to be visually prominent. It'll be live after our next production build.

This is done by design. From SO meta: Yes - this is correct behavior (AKA status-bydesign) - as stated on the privileges page for Cast close and reopen votes - Questions can go through multiple close and reopen cycles, but each individual user may only vote once in each direction in the cycle. Because you have voted previously, you can't vote again. ...

As far as I know, the blurb has been changed in all the necessary locations. Not sure where the CMS is pulling that old text from. Googling for that text just returns some garbage (and what looks like a Facebook group that stole the description). If I had to take a guess in the dark I'd say there's some sort of cache issue. Perhaps this isn't the first time ...

The question was automatically re-tagged when you edited it because interface is a synonym of user-interface (and so is ui). I reproduced the behavior by making edits to this question (but not manually editing the tags of course). Presumably, this is status-bydesign.

The design team is currently working on converting all of its CSS to some other, newer, fresher, hipper cousin. (I'll let them divulge details.) They tell me that when the conversion is complete on GD SE it will eliminate this bug.

The brown alert box looks OK to me — it's supposed to be somewhat jarring. That said, the link colors inside the box look pretty awful: the links are dark, while the body text is white. Here's my humble suggestion for improving it: .message.message-warning a, .message.message-warning a:visited { color: #FFEDA4; } I'm still not quite 100% ...

This has now been fixed. Voting for comments has been disabled during the nomination phase for now. We want to make sure that we are at consistent when it comes to elections.

The wider sidebar rollout has had some bumps and snags. As a result, the 2016 commmunity promotion ads aren't live yet. I've been holding off on the official activation of the new threads since people haven't had much time to design new ads to accommodate the new width (and also to look into some changes on the new filesize limits). This, though, slightly ...

Looks like it has been like this for at least a year. Thanks for reporting - this is fixed and will be deployed soon.

I see it as well on Chrome, Firefox, and Edge on Windows 10. There was a Chrome bug that had a similar issue in the past (it says it's been fixed but it still has shown up on all of my devices for a couple years now).

At least some of the spacing issues is due to the markup formatting. If you look at the markup you will notice there is inconsistent line breaks between list items, outer_wall is the only top level item seperated with line breaks: - outer_garden - outer_garden_plants - outer_paving - outer_wall - outer_wall_window - outer_wall_door - ...

Indeed, the event is generated automatically... extending the nomination period did not alter the event though. I've fixed the end date:
