Should we reduce the vote threshold for closing questions?

I'm all in favor of option 3: ask SE to lower the threshold for closing questions from 5 to 3 votes. (Importantly, the same should apply to the threshold for reopening a question. This is also the ...

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

CV shows up in papers sometimes, so I turned on the citation option this morning: This option should make it just a bit easier to reference the great work you all are doing here.

Increasing reputation needed for creating tags?

I think us going towards a higher threshold is reasonable. In a way, CV.SE is a mature site/community anyway so the "obvious" tags are by and large covered. Bringing our threshold in line ...

What should the "MathJax help" link (in the LaTeX section of the "Editing Help" page) point to?

Personally, I'm all for having the link as $\TeX$ is heavily used on our site and while most of the users seem to be familiar with it, it's not all, and sometimes the knowledge is partial, for example ...

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.

Do we need the Drug tag, or can it be discarded?

There's clinical-trials that should overlap with "drug" while being more relevant. We have few other relevant tags as well. "Drug" seems broad and not really helpful.

Do we need the Drug tag, or can it be discarded?

With 'drug' I might potentially think about pharmacology which is about dynamics and kinetics. But all of the 6 question seem to be just some clinical trial, where Tim mentions there's already a tag ...

Should we reduce the vote threshold for closing questions?

Some of you may have noticed the Meta Stack Exchange post - Testing three-vote close and reopen on 13 network sites (it's linked in the featured on meta sidebar) - we've finally got this project under ...

Should we have a "stratified-sampling" tag?

Why am I seeing the SE network icons exchanged?

Adam Lear commented on "Hot Network Questions" website icons scrambled (thanks Glen_b for pointing this thread in the comments). We have a race condition where when we update the favicon ...

Show reason for closure when reviewing questions for reopening

So, originally when this queue was created it was only a queue for questions that received reopen votes. It only ever had the "Question" tab which already displays a banner which lists the reason it ...

Matlab syntax highlighting now works on CrossValidated but does not turn on automatically

The community needs to identify such tags, because there is no guarantee that the system could correctly infer the desired highlighting syntax from the tag name. Moderators can indicate which ...

"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 ...

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 ...

Suggestion: delete [comparison] tag

As the discussion in comments pointed to, there is no good synonym, so we should just start to eliminate little by little. There are many other tags with comparison in name, like model-comparison, so ...

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 ...

The user actually had two profiles created by mistake and proposed the edit from the other profile, not the one used to ask the question. The profiles have since been merged, so now the edit looks a ...

Tag proposal: [cronbachs-alpha]

Maybe let's add [cronbach-alpha] (without 's) as a synonym..? I guess it will make searching easier since people may drop "s" in their queries. What do you think?
