Hot Stackoverflows

Chrome render bug for search bar [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

Consider:

Rendering bug

I've noticed a small rendering bug on Chrome which only happens on the first page load. Navigating makes this bug disappear. It works just fine in Firefox.

Unable to ask question on stackoverflow [duplicate]

I am unable to ask question from my stackoverflow account. It shows the below error.

enter image description here

How to get this access back ?

border alignment in activity summary

When looking at the lines below the section headers like "Questions" or "Answers" on the acticity summary page, you will notice that they are off by one pixel in comparison to the ones right next to them (in this case "Reputation" and "Tags"). I tested this in Firefox and Chrome on different resolutions, using Windows 10 without scaling.

enter image description here

This seems to be related to the selectable tabs in these sections, since "Questions", "Answers" and "Offered Bounties" are lower on the left side of the summary, while on the right side "Badges" is lower then the "Accounts" located on the left side. Each of these has tabs, which use an orange marker with 2 pixel height:

enter image description here

It seems that this pushes down the line by one pixel. The line is achieved through a border-bottom on the .subheader class. The reason for the lower placement is the bigger bounding box of the subheader when tabs are visible:

enter image description here

Disabling the border-bottom on .subtabs a results in a correct placement, but of course the selection indicator for the tabs is no longer visible. Fascinatingly the border of the marker is also declared with a width of 1px, so I don't quite understand why it's 2px high on my screen (I'm no web developer, though).

Suggested Tag only edit got rejected. Is this correct?

I lurk in on the tag a lot and sometimes see questions which are about USB. I guess people think it is the universal serial bus and so it is related. But the tag summary states:

A serial port is a physical interface through which data is transferred (uni- or bidirectionally) one bit at a time. The term usually refers to the RS-232 port with a 9-pin d-sub connector that was once the standard serial interface on a PC.

I assumed that this would exclude USB since has its own tag.

So I edited one of those questions to remove the tag and it got rejected (edit).

My question is: Was this rejection correct? Shouldn't I have edited this question?

Maybe another question is, should the tag also include USB and Bluetooth in it's summary, since those often use the same libraries in c and java?

Fit review queue items to the user tag score

I've restarted using the review queue in my profile to help moderate stack overflow. When I use the review queue I've found that some of the questions I get are so far out of my topic of knowledge - so all I can do is skip. Is there a way to map queues to the user?

For example if most tags I am active on are python and c++ where my knowledge is more pushed for python (judging by my answer acceptance and votes). But in most of the queues, I get answers for linux and php which are very rare in my search bar (some random search week ago), or from some languages/topics I've never even heard of.

I think it would be beneficial of the stack overflow if tags of questions could be fitted towards user. This way there is an credibility to the user, and if user decides to expand their knowledge, tags should naturally reflect that.

For example, if some user has some number of answers with 10+ votes in some tag, Stack Overflow could prioritise that tag for that user and therefore develop trusted credibility base.

This way it seems too easy for me to mess stuff up by flagging question I don't know enough about.
