Yeah, [status-completed] is usually only used with bug reports and feature requests, not really for maintenance winows and such. — V2Blast 11 secs ago

Hi kuekawa, welcome to the Stack Exchange Network Meta site! I'm not sure which search brought you here but the problem you describe will not be answered on this specific site. To get an expert's answer for the topic of your question you'll have to find and then re-post on the proper site. Check How do I ask a good question and What is on topic on the target site to make sure your post is in good shape. Your question is definitely off-topic on Meta and is better deleted here. — Spevacus 37 secs ago

FWIW, this sounds like a great idea: “We can add response header information to indicate if a request is read-only. This can make it much easier to detect this traffic in real- or near-real-time in our logs and monitoring tools.” — Giacomo1968 49 secs ago

Are you asking about the Stack Overflow site or all sites on the Stack Exchange Network? — Makyen 42 secs ago
[ Boson light ] New comment posted by 35308
It was a general question although the information I had on the issue was more specific to SO. Also is there a particular reason for the downvotes? — 35308 1 min ago

[ Boson light ] New comment posted by Makyen
I didn't vote, but I'd suspect that the downvotes are because the issue you're asking about has been discussed many times over the last year, including both all of the specific points you've brought up and the spectacular failure of SE's own attempt to use generative AI to "help" questions. The downvoters probably believe that you asking this question indicates that you didn't do much research about this issue prior to asking this question. Admittedly, it's possible that you did do research and just didn't find anything. OTOH, people are tired of rehashing the same points. — Makyen 53 secs ago
[ Boson light ] New comment posted by cocomac
I also didn't vote, but adding to @Makyen - Downvotes on Meta (i.e., here) can indicate disagreement, so disagreement with encouraging AI usage is a possibility. Also, while it isn't your fault, the Stack Exchange community has strong opinions and a messy history with generative AI on the platform. In brief, there were a number of poorly-received genAI initiatives by Stack Exchange and a moderation strike heavily involving genAI policy. — cocomac 39 secs ago

[ Boson light ] New comment posted by Makyen
While generative AI is banned on Stack Overflow and many other SE sites, it's not actually banned on the entire Network. The company has left it up to individual sites to decide if it's banned on that site. The baseline which is policy on all sites is that generative AI content is considered "not your own work" and it must be appropriately referenced. — Makyen 26 secs ago

If you posted from this account you can access all your deleted posts - in your questions tab scroll down and click on "deleted questions". See: Show all of my question/answers to me even if they are deleted, How do I view my old deleted questions? or Is it possible to get access to my deleted questions?.

@Stevecanhelp the purpose really is the library of answers, not the community around it, for all that we've moved in a squishy direction over the years that departs from that real mission.

Sadly, you won't get an official answer. It is simply too easy to pretend that the communities will self moderate and have them get the blame for any decision. You may look at a volunteer moderator answer here for reference but that is probably all you will get as "official" goes — SPArcheon 31 secs ago

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

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

@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

@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

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
