Comment Post #289687 The title mentions "Bringing bad posts to the attention of curators". In addition to discussing potential close reasons, are you also looking for mechanisms for notifying curators of posts that need a decision from them? For example, adding a close vote could also add the post to a queue of posts ...

Comment Post #289632 Far from a solution so not posting as an answer: If you put a wide image (such as a desktop screenshot) in a quote block, then the reduced horizontal space results in the height of the image also being reduced. It only makes a small difference though, and has no effect at all on tall narrow images...

Comment Post #289632 Is there any reason that images shouldn't work in threads? Is it worth adding a feature request to have the `img` tag permitted?

Comment Post #289626 I don't have reasons for or against. I've started a Meta discussion so that people can answer with any reasons, positive or negative, for or against these or any other questions they think of.

Answer A: Discoverability for the new Proposals site
> Now that there is a separate Proposals site with its own Meta and other categories, that would seem to qualify as a separate "Codidact Community" which should be listed among the "Other Codidact Communities" in the standard page footer. (Since this footer also always lists the current community, ma...

Question How should we phase out the Site Proposals category?
Currently the old Site Proposals category points to the new Proposals community, presumably as a temporary measure until people get used to the new community. This is not ideal, as described in the last paragraph of Discoverability for the new Proposals site. What is the best way to approach remov...

Comment Post #289587 Having said this, I don't believe the reference to English as a first language was intended with malice. Only Olin can know this for certain, but my impression is that it was intended to soften the English usage advice, by indicating understanding. It appears to have had the opposite effect, which I'...

Comment Post #289587 I have 2 issues with the mention of English in this answer: 1. We don't have a requirement that a post's English have any particular minimum quality. We have the ability to edit each other's posts so that we can each add our own respective strengths. 2. English being an author's second language i...

Comment Post #289590 Your rant wasn't without reason. Even though things have been discussed before, most people arriving new won't know that, and may have similar frustrations to yours.

Question Comment flagging broken on mobile portrait mode
From a comment thread page, pressing "flag" on a comment results in a pop up panel with a text input and a "Flag" button. On mobile, in portrait mode, this pop up panel overlaps the left hand edge of the screen so that the flag message being typed and the "Flag" button are obscured: Flag pop up pa...

Question The posts list for a tag suggests each post has only that tag
Clicking on a tag takes you to a page showing the details of the tag, followed by a list of posts bearing that tag. However, each of these posts is shown with only that tag. All other tags on each post are omitted: > Posts tagged bug, each showing only the bug tag This can be confirmed as a bug...

Comment Post #289479 I like the idea of the labels "Question" and "Answer" (or "Article" - there are a few post types) being at the top of the individual search result. How would you feel about these only showing in mixed search results? That is, they could be hidden in search results for a specific post type (so if I...

Question Editor preview for comments
Comments allow some Markdown features such as numbered and bullet point lists, code blocks, and quote blocks. They also allow MathJax in communities for which it is enabled. A rendered comment can therefore look very different from the raw text. Could a preview be added to the comment drafting/edi...

Comment Post #289381 That's an interesting point about service tags. If there are more than one kind of tag maybe we could have tag categories.

Comment Post #289366 There are a few cases where the number of tags is not the problem, just being at the limit is a problem (as it prevents adding a moderator-only tag, a proposal tag, or undeleting a tag). Maybe it would be sufficient to just have a limit for users, and an exception for those 3 cases.

Comment Post #289366 So there is not necessarily a tag limit per post, but there is a tag limit per user per post.

Comment Post #289366 Would it help to have a slowly increasing limit like a trust level? So for example, when a new user joins they can only add 5 tags, but after they gain trust over time they can add 10, and if they don't misuse that they later get 20.
