Voting needs to be democratic, and saying that a new user's vote is less valid than someone who has been signed up for a while is illogical. The rating system has in place mechanisms to weed out bad votes, so the absolute best thing to do is vote, and vote intelligently. Time and votes will remove spurious entries.
I have to disagree with you here; vote rigging has been around, since the dawn of democracy, so saying that voting needs to be democratic, doesn't mean you don't have to prevent vote rigging.
And as CodeProjects voting system describes it, it to has it's counter measures to handle bad votes, and you also posted that high rep members have more saying than low rep members, so why not say, you can't vote untill "you're 18 year old" AKA "one week old member", that to, would be a good counter measure to handle vote rigging AKA "sign-up and vote, and never hear from that member again".
With great code, comes great complexity, so keep it simple stupid...
This bug has been around since a while, now its worse. Now, if you type in the generic declaration for Java code it considers it to be HTML content with the type parameter as the element name and later ones as attributes. For example,
<T extends Object>
Gets translated to,
<t extends="" object="">
Why that happens is beyond me because the language is set to Java itself. The same happens to C++, C# and other languages that support diamond notation.
So, instead of digging any deeper setting a switch might help where you turn the HTML parsers off, when the language is set to non-HTML. For a live example, this answer of mine is what I am talking about: Question about java generic method declaration[^], see revision 1 (sadly, that part don't even have the diamond section and is being rendered as plain-HTML ).

We've had a few articles go through recently where they are already reported as plagiarised in S&A, but enough moderators haven't spotted the theft. This makes life a little harder, as the article then needs to be re-reported in order to close it.
How about an indication in the "Article Moderation: Should this article be published?" box out that this item has plagiarism, spam, and / or abuse reports against it - not how many, or who reported them, but just an indication next to the "action" drop down so moderators get an idea to check S&A and see if they agree with the report before pressing "Approve"?

I just found out about the flag icon at the top right of the article page. You can still report the article as unfit after it's been approved.
".45 ACP - because shooting twice is just silly" - JSOP, 2010 - You can never have too much ammo - unless you're swimming, or on fire. - JSOP, 2010 - When you pry the gun from my cold dead hands, be careful - the barrel will be very hot. - JSOP, 2013
When you hover the report/approve icon, a mini graphic with how many reports belong to which cathegory above the options.
That would be cool and do the job
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
When I hover my mouse over the articles menu header it drops down and I see all of the options. But as soon as I move my mouse down the first option in the list is Chapters and Sections...it pops up a new menu list over top of the articles list...I can't seem to find a way to click any of the links on the articles menu because that one always pops up in front of it.
I use google chrome. Maybe there is some setting I should change, or something?
I d like to vote the survey for the c# best article, but it says i don't have enough reputation.
So, i tried to find if the reason is due to the fact that there is a minimum number of points to have for voting surveys, or a certain # of points as Debator/Partecipant/Whatever, but i couldn't find anything that can point me in the right direction.
Anybody can help me understand why i cannot vote for this survey?
