Suppose you wrote a question asking to find where your mistake is. It might be possible that there are 2 answers - one showing your answer and other showing another very beautiful method and OP doesn't want to accept any. It is more likely that the beautiful method will get upvote and by your feature that answer will be accepted however the other answer ...

I don't think the tag should be removed. It is useful for questions asking about the actions of a specific user, and how the community (and not "specific users") should or can respond. Such questions do not require identifiable detail to be shared (which is the issue addressed in your link "we always kill off the tag every time it appears"...

Putting my Product Owner hat on for a moment then, since this is a feature request there are (the usual) things missing$^1$. Who will be enabling this test? There is a division of labour already: StackOverflow and its employees own the code to the site, and presumably they will need to be asked/persuaded to provide an interface for this test. If they ...

experimentally change the width parameter to find the image size that you regard as the most suitable Be aware that, in general, using absolute sizes can produce something that looks good on your screen, but awful on other people's. I'm looking at this on a 4K monitor, so 200px is going to look too tiny (that's only 5% of the width of my screen), while ...

Keep in mind that Readers pay attention to your Questions on a voluntary basis, so there's no better mechanism beyond asking a good Question to promote attention. I'd expect the person who posted the Question to continue working on it until a solution that satisfies them is found. Posting problems that are difficult, without any idea of how to proceed, does ...

I don't really know you personally J.G., but I do know that you have helped me and so many other users with their questions and sources of confusion. In my opinion, there is no doubt that you are an extremely valuable contributor, regardless of any mistakes that you may have made. I will miss you on this site, and I am sure many others will miss you too. ...

The notice is intended for future answerers to carefully check if what they plan to submit has already been posted. So all the more reason to have it implemented in big-list questions. I'm not sure what you mean by whether it is OK for a user to remove the notice as it is a pop-up that is meant to be removed after reading it.

For the most part we agree with this and this is how we operate, warning then suspension. (I note that you talk about "some" community, not this one.) There can be exceptions to this: One is if there is some immediate harm caused we might suspend right away. For example, if a user is vandalizing posts at a high rate we just will "pull the plug&...

There's a huge difference between asking for reopen/undelete votes and up/downvotes: while the former votes are essential to the posts (e.g. closed post cannot be answered, more obvious for deleted post), it is not obvious what difference it makes when the post is +2 or +10 (see remark). Also, we need reopen-undeletion thread because there's a lot of such ...

Targeted voting (whether it be upvoting or downvoting) is categorically not allowed in the site, so I am afraid your suggestion is not appropriate. Posts should only be voted by following the (albeit minimalistic) guidelines of the usual pop-up: "This question shows research effort, it is useful and clear" or its negation. If you suspect one of ...

So the problem is that how to flag comments in mobile say. So first of all go at the end and you will a find a option of "full site". For refrence- Just click on the full site button. Now you are in the laptop sized site mode. Now you can flag the comment. I want to now return to mobile site. How to do so: Just go at the most bottom and on the ...

I doubt we will actually get rid of reputation points -- they're pretty deep in the StackExchage DNA, and I think they do play a role in engaging people. But how about this: Only report reputation score to one or two significant figures?

In the last 90 days there was a single migration from here to HSM, and even looking in the list of migrated questions further back, one finds not only five questions were migrated in the duration of 2021. As such it seems that the best way to proceed is to either advise the OP to delete and post the local copy; or flag for a moderator to do it. It is true ...

For a question with no answers/comments, you (the poster of the question) can delete the question here and then ask on the other forum. For a question with answers/comments (that you want to keep), flag the moderators and ask that it be migrated. Questions older than 60 days, even the moderators cannot migrate.
