So, I got home yesterday, and found a mysterious package waiting for me. I opened it up to be greeted by a very fancy Careers 2.0 box, with the phrase "go forth and be awesome" on it.
Inside this box was a Stackoverflow branded portfolio. It came with a copy of my Careers 2.0 résumé, a copy of...
To be fair, it's mainly because of the fact that free shipping is UNSUPPORTED here. I mean, if I can get them from my local stationary shop I'll get them in a heartbeat. Hmmm... feature-request time :D
The "Late Answers" review tab has become my new favorite place to hang out. I went through half of my flags in the first 10 pages this morning. And I think that was all for new "late answers" within the last 12 hours.
@yij then again, I was there for a little more than a week and I was eligible :)

Background: Late 2011, the SO devs decided to add a filter to question titles blocking (among others) the word Problem. Even though this change undoubtedly managed to block a lot of crap (if just for a sho...

I am still unable to reproduce the problem that you all are having. I seem to be able to type answers for five minutes of pretty much constant typing in Chrome 18 on Windows 7 with no sign of a crash. I'm wondering if there is some other common factor among those who are experiencing the proble...
This bug is interesting - the implication here is that somehow Chrome's sandbox is failing because of MathJax, somehow
I was recently awarded the electorate badge, and I took a look at the description:
Electorate: Voted on 600 questions and 25% or more of total votes are on questions.
It sounds, at first glance, that we are awarding 25% of question votes which are votes on questions. What?
"Voted on 600 questions and has better than 3:1 answer/question vote ratio" is the current text.
"Voted on 600 questions and 25% or more of total votes are on questions" is my proposed text. (Or should it read "or less"? I'm still not completely sure what is intended.)
"Better" in the origina...
By the way @TimStone, how often do updates get pushed out for the Data Explorer? I have yet to see that feature-request you completed on there. (I imagine the answer is "when waffles has time", but thought I'd ask anyway).
Hi :) Is there someone here who can help me with a serial upvoting issue? I followed the link from (I believe) MSO. It said there that someone could tell me if the same person did a serial upvote on me.
@awoodland Uh... that was me. I set up a chat room that would feed from Stack Overflow's RSS feed. It eventually "froze" from inactivity, making it invisible to users below 1000 (?) reputation, but Google hasn't respidered them all to unindex them.
Not strictly a bug, you just need to ping waffles to get updates pushed.
I always review the changes prior to pushing this across the network, it is too risky to automate this.
I just updated our templates, will be pushed tomorrow.
I'm working on sorting this out. This is actually caused by 2 things:
I have to manually sync the privilege wikis on meta to the local repo on a regular basis, till they are stable.
There is a really nasty serialization bug with the persistence of privileges in our cache. This is causing much...
@Timjadarnel27 I was looking too, these are hard to search for. :P
