See the official list: Only awarded to anyone after each of the 40 top tags has at least 200 questions We don't fulfill this criterion yet: our 40th largest tag (4th on page 2 of the tag list) only has 119 questions.

As Peter points out in the comments, the issue in the linked post is about combining primes with carets (^). The expression q^'_0 is invalid LaTeX (it produces an error message even in LaTeX). Version 2.0 incorrectly processed this expression, but that was fixed in version 2.1, which was released back in October of 2012 (a few months after the post you ...

This seems to be a common issue in various less thoroughly tested parts of the Stack Exchange code base. For example, it also happens in the 10k flag review for any posts hidden behing the "show already flagged posts" link. The fundamental cause of this bug is a combination of the following issues: When the duplicate tabs (and various other hidden-by-...

(This issue has also been reported on the main meta.) The off-topic list is different depending on whether you have more or less than 500 reputation, which is the threshold between flagging and closing. The list contains: Reasons defined by site moderators. We have two: one that notes specifically “Questions about software development or programming tools ...

There was a mishap upstream. All seems to be good again. Note that once we graduate beta (which seems to be in preparation) privileges will go up in rep requirements. Discussing whether this makes sense would be material for Meta Stack Exchange.

Apologies here - I inadvertently disabled MathJax on the site. I've re-enabled it now.

The “featured” tab lists questions with an ongoing bounty. At the time you posted, there was no question with an ongoing bounty. When the tab would be empty, it is not shown at all.

This has come up before, so I'm not going to repeat what I wrote the last times: Self-deleted questions Another self-deleted question There hasn't been any change in the Stack Exchange software. Askers can unilaterally delete their question if it has at most one answer and that answer has no upvote. As a reminder, our policy is that moderators undelete ...

This is what I see: No problem there. I don't know what could cause the problem on your side (maybe a browser problem?)

Under “Science”, the footer now lists MathOverflow, Mathematics, Cross Validated (stats), Theoretical Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science, Philosophy, and a link for more. I think this has been the case for a while.

Apparently, nowadays, the target selection box in the migration dialog only shows the first 10 search hits in alphabetical order. All meta sites contain the word “meta”, so if you just type meta then you basically get the first 10 meta sites in alphabetical order. Variations are possible on the site name, such as adding “Stack Exchange”, or typing the URL. ...

The current button color is using #1 from the palette as proposed in the design feedback thread. Here is how it would look using #2 (#227277):

It's there: I'm not sure why you would not be able to see it. Can you now? Maybe it disappears when there's no featured question.

When migrated questions are closed, they enter a special state. The basic assumption is "the question is crap" so there would be no need to edit. Clearly, this assumptions flawed; see also this meta.SE question. The fact is that such questions get locked against edits. Moderators can clear this; I'll be doing this for your question now.

I guess from the scenario and the approximate timestamp that this happened between 2016-07-21 18:07:57 and 2016-07-21 22:01:15 UTC. Please mention this information explicitly, it's important! There was a pending suggested edit at this time. When a suggested edit is pending, no other edit can be made. When you use the “full” website: If you have less than ...

< is also the starting character of any HTML tag - which a subset of is allowed in markdown. As such - it isn't escaped by the parser - and your browser thinks that everthing after < (until a > is reached) is a tag. So isn't shown on the page. Solution? When posting math, use math formatting, as in the edited post.

I think the solution was given in the design proposal thread and is featured on every page: And the SVG sprite should probably be used there (currently it's a PNG).

I seem to have fixed it, now all the indentations are in line and they all say N. rather than N): \begin{align} v_1 + v_2 + v_3 \qquad = 1\\ \qquad v_2 + v_3 + v_4 = 1\\ v_1 \qquad + v_3 + v_4 = 1\\ v_1 + v_2 \qquad + v_4 = 1\\ \end{align} It's easy to check that $v_1=v_2=v_3=v_4=\frac 13$ is the unique solution. Consider $v_5 + v_6 + v_7 + v_8 + 0 \cdot ...
