Why can I not down-vote?

It's not a bug. You need to have 125 reputation to down-vote a question or answer. Also, down-voting an answer will take one reputation from the down-voter.

My fault. Isn't it always? We had a problem with badges failing to award last night, so I added some extra logging to capture more info when it stumbled. In the process I accidentally broke something ...

Is there an issue with the required rep to vote to close a post?

Using the information I could gather, I found the post in the first screenshot was this one, which is your own. You can cast close votes on your own posts starting at 250 reputation (and you can ...

Asking time is later than closing time

This is due to incorrect rounding. It has been partially fixed, but only for years: Post was closed before it even existed is status-completed. I think your particular case might be the same as this ...

I just received an Announcer badge for a question I have no recollection of ever seeing before

Are you sure you've never seen that question before? If it wasn't you, who wrote this question? ;) In the following screenshot, the first link is the question you've "never seen before": It ...

"Ask Question" button in different position for meta than main site

With Stack Exchange's move to a standardized site design, this issue has been solved (albeit inadvertently). The 'Ask Question' button has been moved: and the mothership now aligns properly: Don't ...

This is not a bug. Retrosaur normally has tens of thousands of reputation points and earned those badges through normal use of the site. Right now this user is on a temporary suspension, so the rep ...

There is probably a small timing difference when an account is scheduled for deletion, vs when the script that processes deleted accounts actually runs. It seems to have run now, in any case. https:/...

Gonna guess those are Gravatar images? Sounds like something's down somewhere between you and Gravatar. We've had a couple reports to that effect earlier this week, but unfortunately there's not much ...

First Post Review Queue Bug? More than 140 reviews in a week

Indeed, there're only seven days in a typical week, you aren't mistaken. The skipped review tasks don't count either (so weird it would be otherwise). The review audits do count towards daily ...

Is the bottom banner for Arqade not working? Or was it removed?

Thanks again for reporting. It definitely was a bug caused by the new footer UI across the whole network. The fix is now waiting in repo for build. You should be able to see the footer artwork in ...

Yeah it seems that support questions are excluded from 'Hot Meta Posts'. I would assume this is the case for bug and feature-request too. Both badp and Invader Skoodge's posts used support, while ...

How do OP cards exist in meta but not in main site?

Unicode names are allowed, and as long as they are not problematic, or do not meet the criteria for usernames generally (rude/abusive) they're fine.

Why hasn't this tag with 0 questions been deleted?
