I went through and tidied up all the questions with this tag. There were only 30 or so, it took about an hour all together. Perhaps a better mechanism would be for newly created tags to be reviewed by the community before they are displayed on the question, this would solve the issue without resorting to strongarm tactics.

would like to hear any objections, with the reasoning of course. Your question lacks a great deal of formatting which makes it very difficult to read. You have intentionally or unintentionally bolded specific words unnecessarily. Bolding should be used sparingly. If you disregard the fact your formatting needs to be improved, it's not clear what you are ...

I'm well aware of how to time the execution of a command, but timing the command on my Cygwin system - itself not very representative of most systems that bash is running on - would have told me nothing about which method would be in theory faster to run. Your question does not mention the use of Cygwin. The moderator who closed your question, for not being ...

You are using an old and unsupported browser. As a result performance and functionality is not guaranteed. It might work but there isn't much we can do. I appreciate that this is not helpful, but it is impossible to guarantee support for old and out-of-date software. As a minimum it is advisable to not be using out-of-date browsers or operating systems to ...

In my post I clearly stated I have Windows 10 ISO. Why do they refer my thread to one that is looking for Windows ISO? I already have it. You mention the fact you have a Windows 10 ISO but it's to large to write to a DVD. I took this as an indication you were not aware of how to properly create a Windows 10 installation media. I'm looking for boot image ...

I'm not sure why our moderator @davidpostill reopened this. Neither question was a good fit for this site. No one, unless they work for your ISP is going to know why they choose to route this way. (other than contracts or design) It's why the ISP on network diagrams is a cloud. No one knows how the ISP inter-switched network operates from A <---> B, it's ...

I'm not actually going to downvote for, as the floating help tag says "This question shows no research effort" but in order to get far enough into this site to have posted your question you must have ignored at least 6 guidance points, pop-ups & floating help tags designed to aid you in this initial discovery; so the answer is really "don't ignore stuff ...

I'm a new superuser as well and was able to raise my reputation a bid by asking a first question, which at least showed some research and own efforts. If others find it reasonable or useful in general or asked the same themselves, this might be as well a reason for a up-vote. But most importantly you are able to answer questions without any reputation and ...

How does a new superuser increase their reputation? First, please take some time to read the articles in our help centre. There you will find: How do I earn reputation? The primary way to gain reputation is by posting good questions and useful answers. Votes on these posts cause you to gain (or sometimes lose) reputation. Please note that votes ...

Users with enough reputation have access to site analytics (here). Let's confront your impression with some hard(-ish) data. The screenshot below visualizes some statistics from the previous 100+ weeks (2 years). Based on the graphs one cannot tell if "the number of questions answered has dropped" or if "the number of questions that even get a comment has ...
