Sorry, this is not an issue to be solved on a single stack of the network. If at all it should be addressed all over the Stackexchange network. You will have to take that issue to the main meta page:
Keep in mind though that this problem has been discussed before and the current way is likely by design:
Are usernames ...
I seem to recall we went through this a while back to standardize things such that all the model tags start with pi- then the model, sans b for the 2 and 3 (although I notice pi-2 has four synonyms already, neither of these has the b suffix as a synonym, so I've suggested that).
So I've merged pi3b+ -> pi-3b+. If anyone is so inclined, please go and ...
it's not really something to be worried about, the purpose of using @username is so your message appears in their inbox.
This answer on Meta StackExchange covers the topic really well. But to answer your question spaces are automatically taken out of the username when you use @username to mention someone in a comment. From the Meta post:
Spaces are ...
Backticks are used for the Markdown syntax for inline code. Thus, if you write:
Use `cat ` instead of `<`
it renders as:
Use cat instead of <
With "cat" and "<" in a monospace font (and with a gray background, but you can't see that inside a blockquote, since those have the exact same gray background color).
To get a literal backtick in ...
I may have screwed one up for you. I approved the edit and "improved" on it, but then I also switched two synonym tags:
raspicam <-> camera-board
Previously, the former was a synonym for the latter, which means the tag that actually got used was camera-board. I created that mapping a while ago, but I'm pretty sure I did the reverse of what I intended ...
The loss of the edit link could happen if there was another user actively editing the answer at the time.
The link would reappear once they finished or abandoned the edit.
However, if someone proposed an edit, you should have been given an inbox message offering you the chance to approve or reject it.
So, I can't answer definitively, but I would suggest ...
That's a browser-based function, and all Stack Exchange could do is change the text of the prompt. See e.g. this link. They're not doing this, which can be observed by comparing the dialog in Safari:
with the one from Firefox:
and the one from Chrome:
But note that Stack Exchange does have a feature which helps here: it automatically saves drafts of any ...
Probably because linking to that question from a dupe is not very helpful for the asker. There's no way of knowing that the question is answered when it is done in comments.
You could always answer the question (preferably the earlier one) instead.
If you are still having a problem with this, I suggest you post a question on Meta Stack Exchange. No one here, including us moderators, is responsible for anything technical. We didn't design the site, we don't have any more access to the servers than you do, etc. I believe the server side code is public (and mostly ruby), but I've never bothered to look....
The privilege to raise flags is available when you have reached 15 reputation.
For clarity this is the pop-up you should see when you click to raise a flag on a question:
I'm not sure why only the in need of moderator intervention option would pop up, it might be useful to include a screenshot of what you are experiencing.
As far as I am aware once you ...
Thanks for raising this issue. Seems like that formatting issue has been there a while...
I've just gone and fixed the issue, as Glorfindel has said putting a space between the hashtags and the text does the trick.
I am going to answer my own question because I have figured it out It is an err on my part. I flagged my own answer to a question I was trying to flag. I thought I left a comment for the user that posted not an answer and tried to flag the question for the moderator. I failed.
I guess this is a learning experience..without posting and getting answers and ...
As far as I can see, your account has no prohibitions against flagging of any kind, and the only reputation barrier to flagging is a binary one at 15 reputation.
My thought is that maybe you flagged a comment, which does get a significantly smaller box. If you flag a question, you get a large modal that looks like this:
Whereas if you flag a comment it ...
@lenik I agree with Jivings. There isn't anything explicitly pointing to your comment saying that it resolved the issue, other than possibly that single upvote.
I do agree that it definitely is a duplicate, and thus should be marked as such. I would just go and answer the original question with what you said in the comments; something along the lines of:
