We are currently doing an experiment where users are encouraged to suggest improvements, rather than leave comments. Comments on this site work differently than others. They are supposed to be only for suggesting improvements or requesting clarification. We are trying to see if by making the text say "suggest improvements" rather than "add a comment" we ...

It fills up based on time, not any other metric that I've seen. Betas at 90+ days have full bars. You can see that reflected in the info box text Sites remain in beta for at least 90 days to build up a critical mass of users, questions, and participation. We are only at 70 days, as the number in the blue box on the left states. It seems that you are ...

If you look at this question on Meta.SE, you'll see that yes, it was because it was posted from mobile. When a question is closed (or put on hold), there's a client side thingamajiggy that disables the post answer button. However, quoting @TimStone on his answer to the above linked question: For users answering from a mobile device, there's no client-...

This isn't a bug. This is status-bydesign. Users who have under a certain amount of reputation can only have 20 suggested edits on a beta site: From Shog9's answer: As of a few seconds ago, this limit is now active network-wide: at-most 20 pending suggested edits per editor on beta sites at-most 5 pending suggested edits per editor on graduated ...

After a certain level of reputation, one's edits are no longer peer-reviewed or up to OP to accept or not (...) My proposal: Having a button besides the regular "Save Edits" button, like "Propose Edits", where instead of the changes taking place immediately, they require OP's approval or peer-review voting in order to take place. Edits by users beyond a ...

If you aren't sure about the edit; I'd suggest just not making it. That's different from the situation you describe though, where the edit introduced a new mistake. In those cases I wouldn't sweat it. Everyone is human and makes mistakes. As long as your mistake doesn't completely change the question, or violate site policy, I would just correct it if ...

According to this post six recommend deletion votes will only automatically delete a post if it has a score of zero or less. So, if it was at 1 when you submitted your review, it wouldn't be deleted. Yes, a sufficient number of delete recommendations (currently 6 on most sites, 4 on Stack Overflow) will cause the post to be deleted immediately, provided ...

I notice that you just created your account - probably when you came to ask this meta question. This isn't a bug, it's status-bydesign. From the Duplicates FAQ on MSE: Furthermore, if the question is unanswered, and there is only one target, then anonymous visitors are automatically redirected to the duplicate. If you're logged in, you get the actual ...

Just a guess, but I did a rapid edit immediately after posting which may have effected the time stamp. Also I posted from mobile, so it may be a mobile issue... You don't get the same close and edit notices when you're writing an answer on a mobile device.

I did indeed change the question on the tour page earlier, as I said in the post you linked. Since then, the question and one of its answers were edited. As a result, it's no longer eligible to be displayed on the tour page, and IPS has no other questions that fit the criteria, so apparently the system has automatically reverted the tour page to the ...

This is not a bug. This is status-bydesign. The progress bar is not full because this site has not completed 90 days in public beta yet. In case of graduated sites, the progress bar is full and instead of public beta in the end, there is beta. See this.
