I am probably not familiar enough with how this works to be saying anything Frankly, no, you aren't familiar enough with SE sites in general or this one in particular to be making this sort of judgement. As pointed out in comments, the majority of posters here are not Catholic. There've been a fair number of Catholic questions recently, but that's just ...

If a question is flagged as a duplicate, then one of two things should have happened: There should be a comment to that effect in the comments of the question OR There should be a link to the duplicate in the body of the question. The first is true if the question is in process of being closed. The second is true if the question is closed. If neither is ...

The primary font used to display text on this site is Lusitana. This is different from the one used on BH.SE (Helvetica Neue) because that site uses the standard Beta design (see this and this; you can also confirm by looking at the actual CSS for BH.SE and for C.SE). Helvetica Neue supports curly quotes, but according to Google Fonts, Lusitana does not:

You see, you have 59 distinct badges, even though a few of them have been awarded multiple times. Even Jon Skeet's page has "only" 587 badges, even though he has more than 2k(!) Enlightened badges. So, it's by design.

Deleted posts aren't actually removed from the system. Deleting posts causes them to be hidden from most users and freezes new voting and comments, but the posts are still there and there are a number of things that can be done with them. Moderators can still comment. Sometimes this is useful when for whatever reason a post is removed for not fitting the ...

"Later" was also misspelled. Thanks for pointing out the error! It has been fixed and is now the full name.

This has been completed and it will be deployed in the next build.

Thanks to some snappy work from the SE dev team they've rolled out a fix for the bug that was causing this. Happy voting!

I agree. I also fixed it: Change CSS to: .badge1 {-95px -402px;} .badge2 {-71px -402px;} .badge3 {-47px -402px;} Simply decrease the first values by 4 or 5 px.

I increased the line height for the comment text. The change is currently on our dev server, it will be on live within 24 hours.

I pushed a fix for this to dev. The change will be on live after the next production build(within 24hours)

I don't have any issue right clicking on those links in either Firefox or Chrome (on Desktop or mobile). I suspect this is an issue with your browser. You might want to clear your local caches and check if any extentions or site scripts you might have installed have thrown any errors on the console. Just a note on usability, the links in that section are ...

It seems we had a web config error for Meta causing the custom font file not downloading. I didn't catch this error because I have the font installed on my computer as a system font. The fix will be pushed out to live shortly.

I suggest you were probably having a temporary network issue. The interface shows you the results of your vote instantly, then in the background notifies the server of your action and receives a verification. It is the server that may choose to reject the action (possible reasons include you have previously voted on the post, the post is your own, you have ...

The only case I'm aware of where you will receive a reputation increase with no inbox notification is when an answer you downvoted is deleted. When you downvote an answer, you receive -1 reputation. If that answer is later deleted (by the OP, by a moderator, or by the question it responds to being deleted), you will receive that reputation back, and unless ...

The reputation tab on your profile will detail all the changes to your total. Viewing the timeline rather that just the graph can be helpful sorting out what happened. For example the time slot you gave (depending on what time zone you gave it in) might be explained by this bit: That's somebody removing an upvote on your question after you edited it (-5) ...

status-completed This has been fixed and will be live after next production build.

This is actually an issue on all Stack Exchange sites, not just Christianity.SE. So the best place to report it would actually be Meta.SE, and indeed, it has been reported there a number of times: Badge symbol in notification is of the site you're on, not where badge was earned The best thing to do is upvote that question and hope that it eventually makes ...

I don't actually think the problem is with the blockquote syntax, but rather that the translation was embedded in the URL of the link and not listed in the text of the question. I would recommend an alternate strategy of including the translation in the text of the post.

Works for me. Try a full reload, sometimes if your JavaScript backend stuff gets cached it won't talk to the servers right. Usually when the SE team does anything that affects the functionality of the site they will throw it into read only mode and a banner on top of the site will let you know that you cannot do anything but read. I haven't seen such such ...

This is not a bug. The difference is in the vote patterns on the questions. You will find all the questions show up if you specifically go to the questions tag and sort by active or newest, but the home page has several filters to keep junk from being the first thing that new visitors see. I believe the cutoff for closed any question to be hidden from the ...

This could easily be solved by aligning the background to the right so that you can reasonably predict where the text will fall on top of it: #input-area { background-position: top right; }

I have the opposite issue (I'm assuming screen size comes into play here)

This is still an issue. SE, can please fix? :)

You're being thrown off by the fact that the comments are prioritized. If it runs out of room to show all the comments, the system tries to keep a couple of the most highly voted comments. In many cases that means that the comments that get hidden are not the latest comments, they might be interspersed in the rest. Since the last comment in that set is ...

Much to my surprise. We are in fact measuring kilo-views. Here is the canonical Meta Stackoverflow posts on it: 1 kviews—shouldn't kviews be singular? So this is an intentional design decision rather than a bug. I'll tag it status-bydesign
