@JourneymanGeek how public? I didn't notice responses tab in other users profile. What do I miss?
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog weird, usually downvotes aren't the problem. Well, gone now.
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry huh
I guess you're right

Q: OverflowAI Alpha invitation emails were distributed in error Nov 28th

Bella_BlueStack Overflow is currently in the process of rolling out invitations to access OverflowAI alpha to 200 users per day. Today, the process we use to grant access to the OverflowAI Alpha did not work as expected and sent access emails to all users who had joined the waitlist to participate. However...

SO typical.
Such things almost always leak before they're ready, in SE.
Actually on second thought, this might as well be on purpose, to draw attention to it. bleh.
> The majority of users who received these access emails today will find that their access links do not work as expected
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry Feeling better now (and @starball ). Just some stuffiness but otherwise good.
@Catija glad to hear it!
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog sigh. I saw the email, went to try it out, became confused, became disappointed, went to MSO to report a bug, and then saw that.

@Catija glad to hear! :)
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog and? It's common marketing practice. Maybe it has a name, let me look...

Q: Stack Exchange’s image hosting arrangement with Imgur is ending - advance notice

SlateFor more than a decade, Imgur has provided image hosting services to Stack Exchange, but that hosting contract with Imgur comes to an end this upcoming April 2024. This April will conclude a decade-long successful relationship between Imgur and Stack, for which the whole company has been deeply ...

Beat me to the punch, @Sonic
@Slate I have a penchant for doing that. Just look at my name
You know, on second thought that's pretty reasonable.

@KylePollard expanding on the thumbnails idea, will SE consider a way to implement something similar to the simple imgur resizing shortcuts? Without them, I foresee many very oversized images in our future and a lot of editing - and a lot more HTML in answers. — Catija 5 mins ago
@Catija I was going to ask that and then forgot :P thanks!
@starball Sure :D
The Stacks editor really doesn't like HTML in posts (for the WYSIWYG), so avoiding HTML is actually a pretty big deal if they want people to use it... and if they add this feature to whatever they're doing for public, they could add it to Teams, too, which would remove the need to use HTML for image resizing on Teams.
Kinda makes me want to answer in that regard (rather than merely comment) but I have to go pick up one of my kids from school.
I'll try to post something when I get back.

How to get my question reopened? I edited the question to separate it from the proposed dupe but there aren't enough active reopen reviewers to keep up with the aging of the votes. meta.stackexchange.com/q/394737/1377755
@user16217248 I really wanted to reopen it, but at the time, felt like it should be closed. I still feel very conflicted, and upon further thought, feel like it might not have been the right move to move my answer to the proposed duplicate. It actually doesn't fit there as well as I had thought.
10:39 PM
@starball Why did/do you feel it should be closed? Is there anything else I can improve?
11:07 PM
@user16217248 well, part of it was the list of people who closed it. Including Robert Longson, who I generally view/respect as a user who has a lot of experience on MSE.
I.e. it was/is partially "he must know something I don't"
another reason is that any underlying discussion of the value of scaling rep with some notion of "difficulty"- however it is measured- is shareable.
Isn't it against the guidelines to curate content based on the people involved? You should see if the question's close reasons were resolved (i.e. differentiated itself from the dupe) and reopen/leave closed based on the content of the question. Not based on the author of the question, or who voted to close it, etc.
I have tried to remove mentions of 'difficulty' from the question. And instead solely focus on questions that are old and unanswered. Which may or may not actually correlate with their perceived or actual difficulty.
give me a second. I haven't read your above comments. I'm reading the answers there to see mow much of it is actually relevant to your question.
11:22 PM
after reading the answers in the dup-target (which I didn't do before), I've changed my mind. @user16217248
@user16217248 note: I did not vote to close, and I have no obligation to vote to reopen your answer or evaluate whether it deserves to be reopened.
11:47 PM
'I read the answers in the dup-target and none of them address the actual FR here due to the difference in mechanics for assigning difficulty rating' So presumably you think the question is not a duplicate anymore?
11:59 PM
@user16217248 There were three reopen votes on your question so I cast a fourth one which reopened it thanks to my gold badge... that's a first, I guess.
