We try to never let the bots earn rep, but this one became sentient. I challenged Community to a battle of epic proportions and removed the extra 4 reputation by force. Lesson learned: never trust robots

This is not a bug, the question is older than 60 days so the migration option is disabled. See this Meta Stack Overflow Post: questions older than 60 days should not be eligible for migration, either by normal user close-votes or by moderators. In extreme cases, we can perhaps provide an alternate means of moving old questions, but under normal ...

This has been resolved. We were performing some testing on Post Notices and in doing so we found this bug in the migration process. This bug has been fixed and there should be no more weird migrations that point to incorrect posts.

The profile page is heavily cached, and doesn't update as quickly as the question page. You can blame caching or magic, but I'd go with caching.

Given that the answer is newer than the comment and answers automatically converted this way don't actually leave any deleted answers behind, what likely happened here is that the user posted two such answers. The first one was automatically converted into a comment. After this happened the user tried again, possibly wondering what happened to his answer. ...

There's one requirement missing for you to get the badge; see https://dba.stackexchange.com/badges?tab=tags (emphasis mine): If enough votes are earned in a tag with 100+ total questions, the badge will be automatically created and awarded. The innodb tag only has 43 questions at the moment.

This was a bug that was fixed this weekend.

Out of all the questions posted on Database Administrators, only two have stacked quotes: ORA-04031: unable to allocate bytes of shared memory ("","","","") ORA-01555: snapshot too old: rollback segment number with name "" too small ...and both of those render correctly. Only one question has nested quotes:...

Works on my machine Perhaps specify your OS / Browser / any extensions you use.

This comes down to a display oddity that occurs when there is an unupvote that takes place. The unupvote shows that is happened today because that's when the event took place, but the vote and reputation are removed from whatever day it originally took place. So if you add all your events from today, excluding the -5 you'll get 200 rep for the day, which ...

It is my understanding that as questions are deleted, or in some other cases, the questions you vote for still show in the one list but are obviously no longer counted in the other. Good catch, but as far as I am aware, this is "the way it is supposed to work". I'll get confirmation if I can in the form of a Meta meta link. Different Value of Votes in ...

The API was returning unreadable colors for this site's tag styling. This is fixed now, so tags in future oneboxes will be readable.

A given question tag will specify markup to be used throughout the question (there are rules, but effectively the first "language specified tag" will set the tone for the entire page), but to override that for a specific answer, or portion of a question (as you're demonstrating in the linked bits) you would need to refer to the aforementioned question: ...

I know it's exciting to be the first person to earn the Socratic badge, but let's wait the recommended 24 hours before panicking too much. It's taken at least 100 days to earn, so 1 more day shouldn't hurt :) Not saying you were wrong to raise this on meta, and I do understand you are rightly keen to have this gold badge display as it should. ...and now it ...

You need more indentation :) This: 1. Try this query: select * from table where formatting = 'well-nigh'; 2. Or try this query: select * from table where formatting = 'well-nigh'; Produces: Try this query: select * from table where formatting = 'well-nigh'; Or try this query: select * from table ...

When I open the SO link while not logged in, I end up at the "wrong" question, the one you linked first, i.e. ORA-32004: obsolete or deprecated parameter(s) specified for RDBMS instance However, when I am logged in and click the SO link, I am redirected to this DBA.SE question: what is the solution of these errors? The latter is closed as a duplicate of ...

I think this is client-side. Below is a blowed-up screenshot from chrome of the same section: EDIT: I also don't see clipping when taking a screenshot at 100% and zooming in:

As per Jin's comment this issue has been fixed and the change is live.

This is a known issue, and not specific to Database Administrators. There have been some attempts to fix the problem, but they're not foolproof. See these: Stack Exchange chat name mention inbox confusion Getting Marc's chat notifications What are the rules for when chat messages appear in a user's inbox?

You're entirely correct; an oversight. Fixed next deploy, thanks.

This isn't a bug, it's status-bydesign. The unupvote is the confusing piece. Your rep for Nov 17th shows a -10, but this is actually impacting your rep on the day for the original vote, July 30th. When an unupvote happens, it's like the original vote never happened...poof, it disappeared on July 30 along with the rep, even though the action happened much ...

I experienced the same issue while tracking my gold SQL Server tag. I needed to reselect the badge from the tracker for it to actually update the graph. This has been asked-and-answered at "Next tag badge" panel score and answers counter discrepancy - unfortunately, the answer is the workaround I talked about above. I suppose since this was ...

This was a network-wide bug that affected multiple badges; the code tried to award them, and did everything (including notification) except actually award the badge. It was fixed within a short time, allowing the badge to be awarded, which meant it finally stopped trying to do it. Sorry, this was my fault - apologies for any inconvenience.

Thanks for catching this! A fix has been pushed and will be live with our next production build!

Seems to have been restored at 17:48 UTC, January 23. See here more information: What happened to the top bar and it's restored now on meta.SE Quoting from the accepted answer by Shog9: There's a project underway to bring the mobile theme more inline with the design of the full site, including the new top bar and some experiments with vertical ...

Seems perhaps that the dba.se data is cached/refreshed at a lower rate than we might expect (and whether that is different from other sites, I'm not sure). For example, on my network profile, it says that I have 868 answers on dba.se, yet on my dba.se profile, it says I have 897. Based on my answer history, I probably had 868 about two months ago (but I ...

So just to test this, I went to the question ( DDL trigger permission Error ) and copied the text in the rendered code block (not the "raw" text from clicking on "edit", just to be clear), and will paste it below and add the word "AS": CREATE TRIGGER [TR_CaptureDBChanges] ON DATABASE FOR CREATE_PROCEDURE, ALTER_PROCEDURE,DROP_PROCEDURE, CREATE_TABLE, ...

The comment has been deleted. The problem originates the fact that you have multiple accounts and they have not been merged. You can learn about merging accounts here: https://dba.stackexchange.com/help/merging-accounts

It's converting the index word to a tag search automatically since it's one of the top tags. The questions that contain columnstore don't have the index tag. I added that tag to my question about columnstore, but we may need to set up synonyms for the tags to help in searches. The quotes eliminate the auto-conversion to an index tag search. You can get ...

The fix will be in the next production build.
