I like thinking, and playing games, and building websites.

Oh, and sunglasses confuse me.

I'm also a moderator on Stack Overflow.

comment Stackapps Overlapping Bug
Are you sure you haven't changed any settings that affect the font size? Your text in that image is way larger than what I see when viewing the page, and that's causing it to all expand to widths that break the page layout. Here's a comparison of what I see versus what you see. Using Chrome on Windows 7.

comment If a user upvotes answers to a question and I have multiple answers there, it is hardly serial voting
I don't really think this case warrants a change in their decision. It's still extremely rare for something legitimate like this to happen, and it's not like you don't have a plethora of votes on those posts to counter the "serial" votes that got reversed.

comment Let us choose a close reason after a migration has been blocked
Question blocks are not private information. We don't go around telling anyone who wants to know who is blocked from asking questions, but if a user is going to other sites to ask off-topic questions because they are blocked, there's nothing wrong with mentioning it in a comment and telling them to stop. The only thing you should never ever post in public is personally identifiable information (email, IP, etc).

Tbh reopening and closing again is probably a bad approach to the situation either way. But if you know the user is blocked on the other site and they explicitly came to you and asked an off-topic question, call them out on it. Something like: "Please do not come here to ask your programming questions because you are blocked on Stack Overflow." We used to do this on Meta SO all the time, even when we had the custom off-topic reasons. You can't put that in a custom off-topic reason.

Off-topic is the most appropriate reason, though. Whether a sub-reason shows is really not important enough to kick moderators back down to the dialog to have to choose the reason over again. I would suggest just posting a comment, which is in-line with how sites who don't have a custom off-topic reason for that scenario would have to go (off-topic > custom > type reason).

That still is not necessary. If the asker is question blocked on Stack Overflow, then explicitly using a custom off-topic reason that mentions Stack Overflow is unnecessary. They know about Stack Overflow and they know they could have asked their question there.

@davidkonrad I know exactly what is going on. You are not losing 4 reputation for deleting answers. That never happens and never has. You're losing the reputation you gained. Period. Nothing else to discuss.

Ha, the word "views" is colored correctly... I imagine there's another style overriding the fix they pushed a few weeks ago.

comment Highly scored recommendation with pending delete votes - how to save?
I'll note that I didn't actually read all of your question, just looked at the Stack Overflow question. But I have to say, I think it's better to just delete this. There's nothing of lasting value in that question. It's just a massive link dump. Almost all of those answers would be delete-worthy on Software Recommendations.
