About the tag status-declined 3 threads under it out of 13 did not have answers/comments explaining why the feature was declined (however simple the explanation may be).
According to the tag excerpt a developer generally would leave a comment explaining why the status was declined or the developer tags the question according to a community consensus (like, involving high score answers/opinion-based comments).
Here is the tag excerpt:
Indicates that a request (usually a feature request) has been considered, but will not be implemented. Generally speaking, a developer will leave a comment as to why, or the community will come to consensus that the request is unnecessary.
I could not visualize the excerpt history to see if it was created/filled after the questions were tagged (got the page not found, 404 chart).
The following 3 questions are unanswered and seems to me they were not matched with the
status-declined excerpt criteria:
The below threads are counter examples (the first has an answer left by a developer and the second has an answer posted by one of our mods). All the other 8 threads not cited here follow this pattern.
Should there be a way to indicate answers you're especially proud of on your user profile page?
Is it ok to decline a feature-request without giving a feedback?
I mean, other users can like a certain proposal and be confused why the questions' ideas were not accepted. Also, duplicates questions might arise without being possible to mark them as duplicates (since there are no answers in the original ones).
I am looking for support to better understand how the mechanics of tagging a question
status-declined works and if our specific situation here on CV Meta is ok or if it needs to be updated (regarding the first 3 cited posts).
