You're essentially asking for a scope change. Just blacklisting/banning the tag won't help; users will simply use other tags (such as the country they've found the rock in, or even random tags) for their questions. Scope changes should be discussed on the site's own Meta and Idea - make identification request posts off topic and I've had enough. Let'...

It's actually a MathJax formula, not a Unicode issue. The source of the MathJax formula gives us: \def\x#1{\smash{\rlap{\hskip{-10em}\style{transform-origin: center middle; display: inline-block; transform: rotate(#1deg); padding: 3em}{\huge{\color{red}{~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\text{Too late...}~\text{...far too late...}}}}}}} \def\y#1{\x{#1}\x{-#1}} {\y{10}\y{...

Yes, you would. Even if you delete every single profile and the one on stackexchange.com, your underlying network account still exists, and that is where the association bonus is stored. That underlying account is never deleted, as it contains the history of what happened to the account, and knowing why specific profiles were deleted can be valuable ...

Yes; this is already in place: When the question/answer is deleted, the reputation lost (or gained) with it will be reversed. ♦ moderators can clear spam flags if there are signs the user's account has been compromised. That way, the posts will stay deleted but the -100 reputation penalty (and the blocking of further posts) will be revoked.

Each community creates its own rules for what's on topic and that generally starts with a meta post as has already happened here. If the meta question gets enough upvotes you can start flagging such questions as off topic and your site's moderators will likely start agreeing to respond positively to such flags. Is 4 upvotes enough on the question though? ...

There's a (community-maintained) list of Community Managers: Who are the Community Team, and what do they do?. But there are more types of employees than Community Managers. Other than that, you can verify if somebody is an employee via the API: How can I verify an account as belonging to a Stack Exchange employee? but there's no way to get a filtered list. ...

Some articles are only applicable to specific sites and have been 'manually' added by the Community Managers: How to create a Minimal, Reproducible Example on the Stack Overflow sites: English, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Database Administrators, maybe more sites in the future How do I advertise on Stack Overflow? on Stack Overflow Enough ...

I am aware of only two places that moderators can customize their Help Centers routinely. I'll use the GIS Help Center as an example because being one of its moderators allows me to screenshot its edit buttons. The best known is the On-topic page which bears the title What topics can I ask about here? The title is the only thing that we cannot change on ...

No, ♦ moderators don't see these comments, just like they don't see posts which are flagged as spam by 6 users. (There's a feature request to have that changed; I posted a few workarounds as an answer there. Those don't work for comments, though.) What could happen is that multiple 'harassment' and 'unfriendly' comment flags lead to an automatic flag '...

Assume I have received 3 answers but all of them are incorrect and not what I asked. I clearly mentioned what my problem was and what I'm trying to achieve yet I didn't received any correct answers. If you have received three answers, and all of them are incorrect, then it doesn’t sound like your question is actually all that clear. If those three answers ...

The closest SE site I see you can go to is SE Puzzling Be sure that your question meets this site's policies though 1st please. Also note that I won't consider your example a "common real world logic problem"1, that stuff is already well known and purely hypothetical. Your example question probably would get downvoted and closed as duplicate at that ...

Moderators could edit https://ru.stackoverflow.com/help page. Our /help page is kinda uniq and has link to video about SOru: About help center pages. Moderators could edit some of them (if CM gives us right to edit; AFAIK he can grant permissions for edit only for 3-5 articles simultaneously). Before editing we usually make collective translation on ...

Clicks on the delete button worked just fine... Next time, flag the post for moderators to delete the comment.

That looks like a question for Music Fans Stack Exchange. It's not explicitly mentioned in their Help Center article What topics can I ask about here?, but IMHO it's close enough. Ask about: The history of songs and musicians/bands/artists/composers/songwriters/etc. Song meanings and the origins of lyrics Terminology used in the music industry ...

The accepted answer in the linked question is correct, I'll re-post the relevant part: based on a very naive calculation This means the calculation is super simple: if the post has 9 lines, and you changed 5 lines, that's 56% change. The 56% is the amount of changes the visible editor has made, not the sum of all changes. Here's an example where a user ...
