Thanks a lot! I'd like say this to the community, the existing moderator team and staff alike. First of all, for making Meta Stack Exchange a great place again. We all know what happened in the past, but right now it really feels to me like the old days (well, not too old, I've been a member for only 6-8 years) with lots of constructive discussions about the ...

This isn't a surprise to me. Glorfindel is an absolute asset to MSE - Whether it's through the well-reasoned answers he's made to technical questions about the site, or helpful bug reports for new features, Glorfindel's always made good use of his knowledge of the site's innerworkings to better this site and its day-to-day operation. His track record truly ...

Can you enlighten us what your stance is on these important topics: Stroopwafels Elfstedentocht Tulpen Molens Dijken 5-3-2 Others like to know Bollenstreek Bami Ballen Zoute drop Vla Please answer carefully. Your responses might haunt you forever ... Congrats! And great to see my fellow moderator from Stack Apps in this important role.

In order of importance: Upvote. While a single vote may seem insignificant, if everyone thinks their one vote doesn't matter, such problems are never going to accumulate the votes that make them 'significantly upvoted'. If you have 'further justification for why this should happen', a comment or answer depending on the size of your justification are okay ...

This can be audited with the Stack Exchange Data Explorer. I've written a query which looks at the post history to determine when a question was featured and when the tag was removed. On Meta Stack Exchange, the duration is 15 days on average. With the site switcher just above the results you can check other Meta sites like Meta Stack Overflow. Do note that ...

Congratulations Glorfindel, on your sixth diamond and the 2nd one earned within 2 weeks (Stack Apps, then MSE)! Your knowledge of the site, many userscripts, and knowledge of userscripts have always helped me in particular here, and I'm glad to see you with an MSE jewel. A burning question, though: Will your first act as an MSE moderator be to rename ...

Glory for Glorfindel! But forget about MSE moderation team... when are you going to be hired as CM?! :)

Meta Stack Exchange (this site) is considered a meta site, hence questions asked here will not show in the Hot Network Questions list. That's the case since April 2014. Since Meta Stack Exchange has no real "parent site", there's nowhere to show Hot Meta Posts like in other sites. However, one very powerful feature that does exist, is that ...

Congratulations Glorfindel! For appointed moderator on Meta Stack Exchange and Stack Apps sites. Well deserved.

In addition to Tinkeringbell's excellent answer: Consider offering a solution as well as your comments (i.e. have something constructive to add to the conversation). Bringing something positive (or at least offering something to make the situation better) will often bring more attention (and discussion) than adding to any pre-existing woes. However, there ...

Quoting @Shog9: Additionally, up to two featured posts from Meta Stack Exchange will appear in the community bulletins of all network sites (including Meta Stack Exchange, but not per-site metas). These are also filed under "Featured on Meta". Note that these will appear in addition to all of the other stuff listed above, so the list of community ...

Do new meta posts have to be within the current roadmap to be escalated for a [status-review] tag? Simple answer: no. Your interpretation of the escalation policy to include new posts is correct. However, the reason for the decline that I received very specifically states that it was because it wasn't in the roadmap: Then that reason was wrong or poorly ...
