The question result interface is much, much worse than the old one. Compare:
Yes, the new interface is much more compact, but some of the most important information about a post - the number of votes, views, answers and whether it has an accepted answer are either missing (in the ...
Someone created the tag elastic-search, but it should be 'elasticsearch' as per the name of the product. Then when I tried to create it, the stupid heuristic refused to let me because of the other tag.
Please create the correct tag, and synonym the one with the dash to it. There are only three...
This has not happened to me. This thread is based on random questions I've seen around.
I love Stack Overflow. The variety of answered questions is stellar. Very often, Google leads me to SO on my programming researches. The community is very organized: all the sanitizing made through moderation...
The interface changes are quite intentional, since the only piece of information missing is the views (which were used very little in our testing - "what does it matter how much someone else saw this?") you're just seeing a more compact interface. It's the only option really without being even more jarring since other result types besides questions and answers will appear later, mixing more than 3+ types of result formats is...yeah. The closed: operator was a bug (same for hasaccepted:) that will be fixed in the next build...these should indeed return questions only. — Nick Craver3 mins ago
It's annoying enough that I might want to make a userscript for this
Somebody on Arqade just created a [windows8] tag. Unfortunately this isn't consistent the other Windows tag, such as [windows-xp] and [windows-7], so I tried renaming it to [windows-8]. Unfortunately the system picked this up and helpfully pointed out that the [windows8] tag already exists - yes,...
For the first time I saw a graphical frowny face in the bug tag. I thought this was odd since I have never seen it before so I went to another page and it was gone. Luckily I took screenshots!
What is this? Something new you guys are trying out?
Then I refreshed and this is what I saw:
unfortunately all of our feedback has disagreed with the varied styling and the very limited usefulness of views (you have to admit your example is a very narrow use case) means they won't be making it back in without more justification. The views if shown wouldn't match much at all, since view counts alone don't trigger re-indexing of a post. Also, views are question-specific, so it's even more clutter if not useful on a value list for a specific type. The searches with tags has always been this way, we just showed you the question instead of the answer the match was found in. — Nick Craver41 mins ago
@LanceRoberts: I didn't vote to delete it because I disagreed with it, I voted to delete it because it was a joke question that was never meant to be a real feature request. Just look at some of the silly answers it generated. It adds no value to the site.
1. I don't think, the question was a joke, just the answers. 2. MSO is know for having a few humorous posts hanging around, and there is not problem with them doing so. The HUMOR tag is legitimate on MSO.
