Should we fix backticks?

If our users never used other Stack Exchange sites, maybe, but since we are part of a large network, consistency trumps convenience. It would be better to address this through education (like in the ...

It's not right that Kit should miss the Hat Dash. I think this "hat" expresses how we all feel about you:

Is there a glitch....why have comments not been removed to chat as moderator intended?
8 votes

When a moderator moves comments to chat, he has the option to purge the comments at the same time (other than the "these were moved to chat" comment). This is a box that must be explicitly checked. ...

Should we try to contact regular users who are no longer active on ELU?
7 votes

EL&U was something like the second or third SE site I found. (I came for a specific site and then started exploring and found my way here.) It was 2011 and I said "hey, I'm good with English (...

Why is the order of posts displayed by popularity and not by time?
7 votes

The whole point of StackExchange, and what distinguishes it from a typical forum, is that the best answers rise to the top. As Mr. Shiny said, answers that refer to other answers should do so ...

Is the "homework" tag really useful? Is there a way to vote to delete it?
6 votes

I don't see how the "homework" tag adds anything to EL&U. Even if a question is somebody's homework, if it's general reference we should still close it. We don't consider why people ask ...

One of the goals of Stack Exchange sites is to make the internet better by providing good answers to real questions. Retaining an incorrect answer is something of a dis-service to future readers; ...

being "unaccepted" - clarifications
Accepted answer

The accepted answer should be the best currently-available answer, which may arrive after the originally-accepted one. So "unaccepting" answers in light of newer information should be possible ...

Why exactly was this question closed?
Accepted answer

The question seems pretty random to me, with no context for why one might think that construct is ok or where it was encountered. (I didn't vote on it; it was already closed when I saw it.)

What is wrong with single character edits?
4 votes

Another factor is that after some number of edits a post (question or answer) automatically kicks over to community wiki, which means (as I understand it) the previous owner loses any rep that was ...

Terminate the [terms] tag
4 votes

I would just remove the tag (without replacing with another tag on questions). "Term" is so vague that it doesn't really add anything IMO. (Though, full disclosure, I find our tag set chaotic and ...

Should we close as duplicate from a different site?
3 votes

Each SE site stands alone, so no you can't close a question as a duplicate of one on another site. If it would add something to the other site, you can migrate and propose that it be closed as a ...

How would we like to format our keywords?

If keywords will be listed at the bottom of a post, then as StoneyB said, who cares how they're formatted? The current behavior is fine. If keywords will be embedded in running text -- that is, you'...

Promoting English Language & Usage

Leaflets (along the lines @Lauren mentioned in a comment) seem like a good idea. You might also produce some low-cost swag; to me, for a literary audience, bookmarks seem obvious, with each one ...

Are questions that set apparently arbitrary restrictions to the word to use constructive enough?

These strike me as, at best, requests for advice about writing (for which writers.SE would be a better fit).

Accepting answers to your own questions and being awarded bounties don't count against the cap.

Please air your grievances here

My grievance is that I am apparently not controversial enough to earn the monkey hat. Hey, I know -- let's talk about singular 'they'! That oughta do it.

What should we do about users circumventing suspensions?
-1 votes

Perhaps questions from users below a reputation threshold (TBD) should go to an approval queue before appearing on the main site? I recognize that this would require (1) a code change and (2) more ...
