Should the Vote to Close option be altered?
This question and my comment there made me think, and it seems to me that to completely avoid any sense of a "pack mentality" that could be applied to when votes are cast to close a question, the ...
Exception to the minimum answer character count
Sometimes a user just needs a single command line answer. To be most efficient (The mantra of the SE community) it would make sense just to give them a single command to run rather than appending ...
Make the use of an OS tag compulsory for all questions
EDIT: You are all quite right. This is not a good idea. If I had a penny for every time I have left a comment on a question asking the OP to state which OS they are using I would be one rich geek. ...
Mention that the commented user is online when asked to move discussion to chat
I have a suggestion Please avoid extended discussions in comments. Would you like to automatically move this discussion to chat? In this part why can't we mention that the commented user is ...
Slogan/motto/credo/goal/summary of site next to logo
This video (“Uncovering Stack Overflow's TOXICITY” which is about SE being toxic to newbies) got me thinking. I agree that the FAQ is too long and hard to find on most Stack Exchange sites, and it ...
Could we show if someone is typing on chat?
When @ at someone, it would be good to know when he/she types an answer. Just like in popular IMs like Facebook, Gmail etc.
Users asking ubuntu questions should be informed about askubuntu ?
When someone asks a question with ubuntu tag they should be redirected to a page informing them about askubuntu and how asking it on that will expose the question to the more ubuntu experts. Then ...
Make badges be worth reputation
I don't know if this has ever been part of the site and then deleted or what, but I think that badges should be worth something, preferrably reputation or maybe something new. I know that some new ...
Could anyone create a tag called "program-like"?
Could anyone create a tag called "program-like"? It would be for questions that try to find a programs with the defined features (It´s a way I used to use this website, I define the features of an ...
RFE: hide vote counts for an initial 2 weeks
I would like to see up/down vote tallies not released until the question has had a chance to be viewed. It's fairly well established that seeing results of votes before you have had a chance to ...
Close question after some days of acceptance (if user accept the answer)
I get disturbed by an answer for a question posted by me, if I did accept and confirm an answer a couple of months ago. I better suggest you to close/mark the question as "no more answers needed".
Remove closed questions from the review tab
It seems pointless to have these questions in the reviewed tab, as they have already been closed. There is nothing else to do to them, and they take up space.
Allow rep from ALL Stack-Exchanges sites to be considered for rep-required functions [duplicate]
For what it's worth - my question is absolutely NOT a duplicate of the 'hypocritical' one linked above.. though it is similar. I wasn't asking WHY Rep is independent between SE sub-sites (it's ...
Shouldn't cross posting be allowed?
I read somewhere (can't find it now), that cross posting is not allowed or encouraged between SE sites. But I think this should be allowed. Here are few examples. If I have questions on Google Earth,...
A picture is a thousand words. Let's make use of that more. Promote Pictures in SuperUser
I've been to so many forums on computers over the years an one thing always stands out. The Lack of information. Take this recent question for example: https://superuser.com/questions/750311/how-can-...
VOTE UP answers for own question even low reputation for new users
I think it should be possible to vote up answers for your own questions even you have less than 15 reputations. New users can't vote up answers for their questions right now.
Proposal: Merge SuperUser, Unix&Linux, ServerFault, AskUbuntu, AskDifferent
Most of the questions are the same (configurations, non-programming) and it would benefit from having more people looking at questions. Some of those sites don't get a lot of traffic, the response ...
Buying reputation points
Is it possible to buy reputation on stack overflow? It seems that the people do answer more efficiently if bounty is offered :)
Remove upvoting on comments under a question, only allow downvoting
If you don't know an answer, why don't you simply pass-by? No question is stupid. We are all human beings and can have different ideas at times and just because of difference, another idea can't be ...
Should we outright ban a few tags when we know they don't belong here?
We could do a lot to better serve the SU community if we killed off some tags en masse. If we're going to maintain many confusingly similar sites, perhaps we should just reject tags like nginx which ...
