Your questions are relatively simple in the context of what the core content is but difficult to read and understand at first glance. I personally think the mixed formatting of your questions — with seemingly randomized bolding and italicization as well as unnecessary headers — makes me not even want to read the question. First off, I answer and participate ...

From my experience on StackOverflow, and a bit on Bicycle Stack Exchange & Cryptography Stack Exchange, responses are unexpectedly fast and helpful. However, in spite of my best efforts with SU , I am having no such luck. My questions appear to be being ignored. Well, the most common response time to a question here is no more than 5 minutes: This is ...

Android tablets fall under the "not about... electronic devices, media players, cell phones or smart phones" clause in our help center. The operating system is essentially locked down and inaccessible without specific tools, with the tool used highly dependent on the device. They are a computer in the same way a smart-fridge is a computer. They ...

At 1000 views per day it's the type Q&A thread that although simplistic gets lots of search engine hits. In general this type of question is poorly received by the community. With a few exceptions, when such a question is asked early (around the time a technology is first launched) or it receives an exceptionally good answer. So yes, my first reaction ...

While Mokubai has very clearly answered your question here, there was an inherent flaw in your original question and the details, or lack of details, you provided… You need to provide a bare minimum of details if you expect anyone to be able to assist you.

I can't speculate about the Big Sur question, but I'll take a bite on the other one Two reasons I suspect – Firstly, while incredibly neat, and I keep trying to talk myself out of getting one every 3 months, the GDC beast is a very niche piece of kit. Only a very specific class of enthusiast, who happens to want to game on a laptop with no discrete video ...

The question definitely does need improvement. For instance changing "I am trying to determine how to proceed." to "What are the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 11?*" would help a lot in several ways. But far too many explanations on SE sites either say too much or too little. We understand exactly what the question is asking, ...

Is Super User slow to respond to questions in relation to other networks for all and in general According to https://stackexchange.com/sites#percentanswered (mirror), superuser.com currently ranks 166 out of 177 in terms of the percentage of questions that get answered. This doesn't take into account the many removed questions. Then, 11 days ago, from this ...

The What topics can I ask about here? help page explicitly states that questions about "websites or web services like Facebook, Twitter, and WordPress" are offtopic. Moreover, the tag description explicitly states that "Questions about Outlook.com are off topic on Super User and should be asked at http://webapps.stackexchange.com/." So it'...
