They don't want to, because they are scared that if they are honest then we will all leave. And they're probably not wrong. So they have to continue to lie to themselves and each other about what they actually want. — OrangeDog 22 secs ago

@KevinB When I publish on Amazon.com, I'm required to clarify whether I used AI. That seems sensible, and it seems something like that might be attractive here on the site. But, now it seems we're looking at a different discussion underlying the other different discussion affecting the discussion here. It's like the Blanket: we're all connected. — Jesse 50 secs ago

Please don't post the same question on multiple Stack Exchange sites. This question is off-topic here and will not be answered. I understand that you were redirected to "Stack Exchange"; there are about 180 Stack Exchange sites and, while I have no idea which of them that user was trying to redirect you to (nor, for that matter, which one(s) would accept this, if any), it certainly wouldn't have been this one, which is for questions about the Stack Exchange network itself. — F1Krazy 51 secs ago

Considering this was an internal ad for a service that was sunset from over a half decade ago, do you also have a time machine? — Journeyman Geek 54 secs ago

Meta is already a focus group, It's only "0.015%" of the active userbase. I simply don't see any value in taking that group and further reducing down to the most vocal/popular. If the only benefit of creating focus groups is to create a safe space for suggesting unpopular solutions and not receiving the pushback from the community for it... we're doing it for the wrong reasons. Ideally such groups should be made up of users who are most invested in the things the group is for. These groups aren't for anything in particular. — Kevin B 30 secs ago

It's a bit of joke by way of analogy to sports betting, @Michael - essentially, I'm saying just doing better than expected can be a nice little ego boost. — Shog9 48 secs ago

I'm seeing an uptick in AI generated answers being posted all over the network. I wonder if it's related. — ColleenV 44 secs ago
[ Boson light ] New comment posted by Laurel
Meh. Some sites don't have many high rep users reviewing, so it might make it take even longer to get approved. And there's no reason to do that if the edit is perfectly good already. You can Skip edits if you don't want to review them. — Laurel 16 secs ago

Thank you. For anyone else who wants to avoid the weird gaps this script leaves in place of the removed questions: I've changed mine to use .remove() instead of the two .css() calls. — Keiji 39 secs ago

keep skipping ?? Do you mean the reviews you skipped, comes back for review again? If so, that may be a problem. If not, skip is the appropriate solution. — TheMaster 26 secs ago

A user who has never posted a question, answer, or comment on meta, can be elected as moderator for life. The issue isn't that the original candidate is unqualified, they can learn hands on ... the issue is that the unqualified candidate can serve for life. — TheMaster 32 secs ago

You can't vote to close a question twice (unless your first vote expired): meta.stackexchange.com/a/250453/295232. That said, the error message is misleading indeed. — Glorfindel ♦ 28 secs ago
[ Boson light ] New comment posted by Greenonline
Oh really..? I didn't know that. Hmm, maybe I should change the question to focus on the misleading message dialog/banner then? It was definitely mentioning "retracted", which then should have nothing to do with it. — Greenonline 53 secs ago

No repro for me, the <aside> is blank. Screenshot. Can you please also share screenshot showing what you mean? Or perhaps it's showing only if you're eligible to vote/nominate? (You can verify by viewing while logged out, or guest mode of the browser) — Shadow Wizard Love Zelda 1 min ago

@Giacomo1968 There were a couple posts deleted here that were by accounts posting on different sites across the network when I investigated a bit. If the flags are getting handled more slowly, it might mean that I'm just noticing stuff that would normally be cleaned up by now, but a couple of those accounts seemed like they had been posting a lot more junk in the past day or so. I've seen stuff all over, including one on ELL that got help on SO for what looks like his bot's text handling lol. Is that irony or just chutzpah? — ColleenV 3 mins ago

So it's showing either to mods only, or users with enough rep to vote or nominate themselves, if you have sock with enough rep you can test it as well. ;) — Shadow Wizard Love Zelda 38 secs ago

@Laurel The edits aren't good. They've got typos, but it will take forever to reject and fix them. It takes too much effort to create a description for a tag and it makes no sense that the rep required is so high compared to the rep to create a tag out of thin air. I realize most people around don't care about tags because they're pretty useless on most sites. Maybe if it were easier to curate them, they'd work better. — ColleenV 5 secs ago

@TheMaster I phrased that poorly. I mean keep skipping the multiple wiki edits that a non-native English speaker is putting the effort in to write, but is making the same small error in every single one. I have no way to let them know they're making that mistake from the review queue. — ColleenV 21 secs ago

It's not "enough rep to vote or nominate themselves" (I have 323 and see the empty aside), so I assume it's moderators only. — wizzwizz4 13 secs ago

Why don't you move explicit suspension details to the main article (review suspensions, etc. do no apply). The thought that automatic review queue suspension could apply while trying to read the post is very distracting. You can certainly delete this comment then. — artless noise 33 secs ago

The one on SO says "Nominations close in 7 days.". I can't reproduce the behavior reported on Code Review. I presume they fixed some kind of buggy condition that was coded for this specific part of the page. Are there any other SE communities with elections coming soon? — Laf 50 secs ago

At the moment the best recourse/workaround for getting action on tag synonyms/merges is to raise them on Meta for discussion, but that also relies on the site's mod team to be proactive and actually take actions requested by community members. Incidentally, that's what we do on Arqade, we use [feature-request] and [status-*] tags to this effect. — Robotnik 11 secs ago

The issue is someone who isn't passionate about the community, could easily become a mod. Why should a community, however small, be lumbered with someone only keen on earning a diamond and a title?! Sites need users who are passionate about standards, who will advise new contributors, who'll be friendly to old and new users. The nominee could even be egotistical and stubborn, but as long as they have a deep knowledge of the subject they will always a better candidate and mod than someone who has demonstratively showed zero interest since they joined the community. — Mari-Lou A Слава Україні 28 secs ago
