A: Why isn't CS functioning as MathExchange or StackOverflow?

Yuval FilmusI agree with David Richerby. Math.se is the anomalous site. It is inundated with boring homework questions that keep repeating in an annual cycle. I personally ran away from the site with disgust, and I wouldn't want the same thing to happen here. I don't mind giving help, or sometimes complete ...

@AndrewT. Anime and other design-independent-graduated sites have beta privilege levels.

It appears that privileges are tied to design in ways incomprehensible, and are difficult to unwind.
 
@NormalHuman I remember that betas suddenly got raised privileges the other day, Jon was the culprit

Q: What's the Matter with these new rep requirements?

AʟᴀɢᴀʀᴏsThis morning I stumbled upon a change in the review system, the reputation requirements have been raised.

Q: Gimp colours do not fill correctly

TLPThis is probably a very easy question, but I am stumped. I am trying to edit a png. I select a colour with the "Select by color" tool, change the fill colour to red ff0000, or 255,0,0, but when I click the selection to fill, it looks brown. Other colours also act this way: blue -> purple, yello...

A more worth setting would be to disable oneboxing for user under a certain rep cap.
