Is there no cite tag to generate a bibtex MISC entry for answers on Cross Validated?

Tag proposal: [cronbachs-alpha]

Create the tag, don't mass-retag - retag slowly, one question at a time, not too many all at once, so we don't bump-flood the landing page.

Increasing reputation needed for creating tags?

I've raised the reputation required to create tags to 1000 - in general this setting doesn't get customized on a per-site basis. It's pretty much 300 network-wide with the exception of Math and ...

"Upcoming events" side box lists the wrong election end date

Thank you for noticing. I believe this was a problem only in the community announcement, because the election page still says it's over in eight days. I have added seven days to the deadline in the ...

A question is not displayed in the Linked list, even though it is linked

As you probably noticed, the question was asked a long time ago, when the code handling the links had a bug. Editing didn't help much because we only do a full rebuild of the links when a link has ...

Do we need data-imputation, multiple-imputation and imputation tags?
