Its still showing:--

On a gaming site programming question.... :-)alt text

    Does it show that as soon as the page loads? On my screen, it has grey text within the box that reads correctly "what's your question? be specific." The only thing that appears in a list underneath like that are questions I've asked before or other things I've used as a title. Oct 18, 2010 at 5:48

    That's not the watermark, that's autocomplete. When the page first loads, as Pure said, it should say "what's your question?..." in the textbox. If you highlight the autocomplete entry and hit delete, it will get rid of it.

Correct, that is not from us, that's from your browser's autocomplete -- I don't see that in Chrome or Firefox though so it must be a Safari quirk.

    @LessPop it's also not something the SE team can fix :)
