I was navigating around doing my usual thing when upon a refresh I saw a popup box I've never seen before saying "The question you're asking appears subjective and is likely to be closed".

I don't have any questions that I'm asking, so I'm not sure what the deal with this is.

enter image description here

Like I said, I've never seen anything like this one before so what is it? :)

  • That's definitely a bug. You get this message when you type a question title like "How do you… ?" or similar.

  • @slhck Perhaps a couple streams got crossed in a cache someplace then, it went away (either after I clicked it, or just refreshed the page, can't remember exactly) and hasn't been back, nor could I suggest a way to reproduce it. If you want to post your comment as an answer, I'll happily accept it - you've told me what I wanted to know. :) Aug 11, 2014 at 20:08

    So tempted to change this tile to read "What's the best popup I saw for a couple seconds near my name?"

We added validation warnings a few weeks ago (here's an example), but they were mainly for asking/answering questions, not editing, so... the next build will remove title/body warnings on edit.
