Comment Post #277926 @Moshi For something as minor as 'Staff' flags in the User List *I'd* be fine with quite a lot longer, while things are as busy as they are at present. BTW My apologies for the bother I caused you over a now deleted Q.

Comment Post #277926 "Meta's tags are mainly used as a way for the site builders and administrators to keep track of what is completed or not" [your](https://meta.codidact.com/questions/276831#answer-276832) words. A PR seems "job done" as far as a site builder is concerned.

Comment Post #277924 I'd prefer the tag be premature (provided only very slightly) rather than be overlooked altogether. For me "will be live the next time a deploy happens" is good enough clarification for a short period. I imagine coupling the tag with the PR action makes it less likely it will be forgotten.

Comment Post #277887 @Moshi Thank you (again!). Now with improved understanding, maybe in such cases *edit from* rather than *edit by* would be an adequate fix?

Answer A: Site for office suites

Answer A: "User Profile" should be more informative.
There is already a Q Should we have "Last seen" times? which nobody has chosen to discuss for about a month and for feature requests I would prefer each to be dealt with individually. Also, for all feature requests I would prefer that the request specify why a proposal might be a good idea. In gen...

Answer A: Why does the title come after the body when writing a question?
It is the logical place for adding it. Based on experience elsewhere, I have long suspected that thinking up a Title after the body of a Q has been written is likely to lead to better quality Titles. I have been known to scroll down to add a Title first (which I have not found bothersome, though t...
