I can't write 'Hello!' at the beggining of the question

You are not supposed to write a greeting at the start of the question. There is a script in place that removes certain common forms of greetings (or at least what appears to be like one, there are ...

It looks like you're in the Low quality posts queue where I understand your concern but what postmortes said in the comments is correct. We're mostly checking for robo-reviewing - people just pushing ...

Glitch Discovered During Downvote. I Gained the “Critic” Badge for Upvoting and then Downvoting my Own Question on my Own Account. Second Time.

The badge was awarded for a vote you cast for someone else's answer. You removed the vote literally one second after you cast it, which might be the cause for your confusion, though — as that means it'...

Why can a question be deleted (by non-moderator users) without being closed?

This is because it is possible that a question can have five reopen votes from users with above 10k reputation even whilst it remains deleted. An old post on the main meta explains some reasons why ...

MathJax handles stretchy characters like the over-and under-braces as follows: for smaller versions, it has several sizes to choose from in its fonts (just as TeX does), and will use one of these ...

Edits on tag wikis counted for Copy Editor?

I do not think that there is a bug. A "tag edit" means changing the tag(s) of a question, and doing nothing else. This is not counted towards the badge, presumably as it seems a bit minor. ...
