Users being able to see deleted comments has been discussed a few times on the main Meta Stack Exchange, such as:
Allow users to see deleted comments on their own posts status-declined
Why moderators can see deleted comments while the owner cannot?
Could 30k+ users be allowed to see deleted comments, please? (highly polarised votes, no status)
You see the ...
For a fairly pragmatic reason: the Stack Exchange software has guards to prevent people from deleting material that's critical to a Q&A site's usefulness. That includes questions that have non-negative scored answers, and accepted answers. Some people, out of dumb reasons or selfish tactics, might seek to delete those later, but doing so does significant ...
Users get access to site analytics at 25k reputation. Diamond moderators have more comprehensive analytics. We're asked to limit how we share the data.
Here's a graph though: it represents the monthly quantity of posts with a 3 month average (i.e. the amount shown for a given month is averaged out using the neighbouring months).
I've removed the Y axis ...
This is an issue about the SE network rather than RPG.SE specifically, and has been asked here: Is there a way to disable all forms of notification for a specific site? - Meta Stack Exchange. The long and short of it is: no, not without asking for your RPG.SE account to be deleted.
There are at least two (slightly different) feature requests on Meta.SE to ...
Stack Exchange does not keep a browsable history of the pages you've visited. (Here's a declined feature request for exactly that.)
The Activity page of your profile does store some other histories which might help:
Your all actions tab will list posts, comments, edits, and other actions you've taken recently.
Your votes tab will list all votes you've cast ...
The linebreak before "If" breaks the spoiler markdown.
Curse of Strahd spoilers ahead.
Fixed (by deleting the linebreak), it looks like:
Alternatively, we can fix it like this:
With a double space at the end of the first two line in the spoiler block. This is the solution I went with, as this matches the rendering in the adventure's text.
Some of that data you will be able to access here once you have obtained the site analytics privilege at 25k reputation.
Three graphs show a timeline of posts, votes, and traffic.
Unfortunately, users with that privilege are not allowed to divulge specific raw data publically:
Since this is a restricted privilege, we'd prefer you not share the raw data.
@sevensideddie's links told me there was no such feature in stackexchange. I did the next best thing I could think of which was write a userstyle that hides those links so I don't have to look at them anymore. https://userstyles.org/styles/110509/stack-exchange-notification-hider
The Stack Exchange Network Terms of Service, section 3 and 15 are particularly relevant. I believe that most things said here are covered under CC although it is worth checking.
If you are really concern, I would consult a lawyer. If you have a publisher/agent, they can advise you as it's part of their job.
Answers are content, comments are noise (in the long run)
Granted, in the process of getting a question or answer the comments are (in the ideal case) helpful in improving the content.
Once the content is brought up to scratch, the comments should (in theory) go to the four winds so that all that is left is content. High quality content, low noise ...
Is there any way to do this short of deleting all the content I ever posted? If that's the only way, is there a bulk delete option?
There's a slightly less nuclear option that leaves your content intact: you can delete your RPG.SE account. The guidance on doing that is here. Your posts will become dissociated from your account, since you'll no longer have ...
The linebreak is indeed what broke the spoiler format.
If you wish to still format these with a new-line within, simply include two spaces after the first line and readd the >! to the following line.
>!Spoilers followed by a double-space
>!Following line after line-break
