If 3 or more answers of user having < 10 rep is deleted, the question gets auto-protected. This is because majority of the time, the "answers" are me-too posts rather than just answers and was implemented as part of a feature request. Is a bug, being tracked at Meta.SO: “Migrated from” banner looks wrong

Yes, it means 2,000 views. If you mouseover it, the hovertext will tell you just how many views exactly. Also, if you click through to the question, the right sidebar will tell you the exact number of views.

Im pretty sure that stackexchange uses proprietary software for their sites. there are some others that are very similar like QATO and OSQA. OSQA is opensource. http://www.osqa.net/

It's showing you the number of updated posts since you last looked at that page. If you click back, you can see a grey button that will show that same number. You can click it and it'll load in the updated posts inline.

Click Stack Exchange, then Super User. Now a new item has been added to meta's help menu:

As Daniel Beck comments, If a section is not displayed completely, the area you indicate is clickable, and will show the additional explanation below if clicked. When the section is expanded like that, the cursor is then usually turned into a regular text cursor. However, this change was missing for the copy of the section that's displayed at the top of ...

It's been asked innumerable times on [Meta Stack Overflow] & status-declined. Quoting Jeff. I don't agree with this request. While "I agree" and "I disagree" is one way that votes can be used on meta, it is not the only way, and I don't want that indoctrinated into users as the "official" meaning of voting on meta. The current tooltips ...

You have over 30k reputation on chat.se (just visit your chat profile, the number is right there). On chat.se, what counts is network-wide reputation (and this has always been that way).

Since a lot of users don't earn badges that frequently, we changed the text to read "recent badges:" and extended the time since earning a badge to four days (up from one day).

stackoverflow and meta.stackoverflow sometimes have different UI code than the other SE sites. IIRC they run on a separate server too. The header of this site is not fixed, because _________ (fill in the blank). They're probably in the middle of a UI update and only wanted to test it on stackoverflow.com until it's ready to go for the other sites, but that'...

What you are seeing there is the mobile view. If you scroll down to the very bottom of the page you will see a link that says "full site" which will set a cookie in your browser to give you the desktop version of the site: As to why your browser suddenly switched to that version I'm not sure. Are you able to post your useragent string? You can get it ...

Stack Overflow is essentially running "updated" Stack Exchange software. they have updated profile pages they have "teams" where groups of users can collaborate as companies or projects they have a "developer jobs" sub-site they have a very different top bar, where the site logo is integrated rather than below it as with other sites There are many ...

I've manually unmerged these accounts as best we can, @Pascal - you'll need to login to SuperUser once to create a new user I can assign your posts to, so you'll get that reputation back. Please comment here once you're done that and I'll happily fix the ownership on these up: How to switch back to previous window on OS X? Linux - command line video ...

I have never seen the Frequent tag, because The "Ugly Blue Bars", can also be questions that are tagged for your Favorited tags. The system highlights these favorite tags for you, making it easier to find questions with that tag in the list. What happens if you set up a favorite, instead of having the system pick something you were at a few times. ( I had a ...

There is a user script Stack Overflow Extras (SOX) that allows the header to be fixed in all sites. It has lots of other useful features as well.

I'll try and address your issues individually here: As I stated, this new box requires a click to invoke and a click to dismiss, making it more work than the previous one. This is intentional, the hover behavior was not intuitive. We do however enable hovering once you click to open any of the buttons on the left, since you have declared your intent. ...
