Can't see names.

The picture should be self evident.I haven't edited out the name, that is how it appeared to me. Selecting the text and right clicking showed the person's name but I can't see it without doing this.

This has happened a few times before in notes and usually happens whenever someone used asterisks. For example, I can't see this when I preview, just checked.

Is it something wrong with my computer/browser or is it site-wide? You can check if this happens for you. If you can see the following, then this doesn't happen to you.

Looks like its a problem with me only. :(

@Calvin Lin I'm using another laptop and can now see the words between the asterisks..Same OS and same browser. Must be somthing wrong with my computer. Do you have any ideas what might be wrong? Siddhartha Srivastava · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Siddhartha Srivastava It could be that your desktop (possibly old?) is unable to load the custom fonts that we used on the site. Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Calvin Lin Well, I can't really do anything for that. I guess I'll just have to live with it. Thank you for helping. Siddhartha Srivastava · 2 years ago

@Siddhartha Srivastava Can you check if you can see this Wiki page? It should look like this:

@Siddhartha Srivastava Thanks. We are currently unable to reproduce this bug.

Can you give me more information:
1. What OS and browser are you using?
2. When did you first notice this occurring?
3. Does this happen every time / frequently / rarely? Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Calvin Lin

  1. Windows 7 and Google Chrome.
  2. I can't say exactly. I guess a month or two? I used to ignore it at first since usually only a word or two were affected and not everyone wrote with asterisks.
  3. This happens everytime. I can't see anything written between asterisks, even in the preview. Though if I select the space where the text should be, I can see the text in "Search google for'...' " option.
So you can actually see everything I've written between the asterisks? Even the line at the extreme bottom? Siddhartha Srivastava · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Siddhartha Srivastava Now I'm confused. Can you state exactly / explicitly what the issue you're getting it? I do not understand what you think is "self-evident", as there are a bunch of things happening in that screenshot.

I thought the issue was that "Names were not appearing in the notifications". But now, I do not think that's the case.

This is what notifications (and just notifications) look like for me

I do not understand what you meant by "For example, I can't see this when I preview, just checked."


It sounds to me that you're not talking about notifications. If so, please be specific and explain what your issue is. Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Calvin Lin Sorry. I'll be more clear. What's happening is that whatever is written between asterisks is not visible to me. Anywhere. Notifications, posts, questions, notes anywhere.

So for example in the screenshot from my laptop above, I can't see the words "For example, I can't see this when I preview, just checked." which you can apparently see.I think the user @Adarsh Kumar had asterisks in before and after his name, which is why when I got a notification about him, I couldn't see his name Siddhartha Srivastava · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Siddhartha Srivastava Ah, now I understand.

This is indeed the first time that I've heard about this issue, and it looks like it is a problem with you only. Words in the asterisks appear as bolded or italicized (depending on the number of asterisks), and so it could be that your specific browser is unable to display that.

I will ask someone to look into the OS and Browser that you stated.

FYI, your note (without the image) looks as such:

@Calvin Lin Speaking of bugs, I wanted to report one too. The italicized text disappears at some places. Here's a screenshot.
