Comment Post #290042 If we merge, which tag should survive? (I added an answer for more visibility, but I also want to make sure you see it since it's related to your answer.)

Answer A: It seems odd to have both "bikes" and "biking" as top-level tags
Biking currently has 26 posts and bikes has 17. Neither has a tag description. The latter is newer. This answer suggests merging them and no one's objected in the four months since it was posted. If we merge, which tag do y'all want to survive? Clicking the buttons is easy, but I don't want to...

Question Should posting on Meta affect reputation?
When we launched this community, we did not yet have the ability to set different reputation grants for different categories. We've had this for a while but we failed to follow up before now, sorry. Do you want us to change posts on Meta to not award rep for upvotes or subtract it for downvotes? ...

Question Where do bald eagles go at night if not in their own nests?
I've recently learned of a local eagle cam and have been enjoying watching a pair of bald eagles and their three chicks. While I don't have access to many days of video to check (the site buffers 12 hours), I have noticed a pattern the past few nights that I'm curious about. Throughout the night ...

Comment Post #285322 I agree with this approach. I think voting on it as an answer should give clear-enough indication of community support; while the question and other answers raise a variety of points, this proposed policy is clear and not mingled with other factors.

Comment Post #285317 If we could agree on "legitimate" I'd be happy with that, but it's inherently subjective so I wondered whether an objective measure would help in the meantime. (I said one *unanswered* at a time, not just one at a time -- incentive to fix a question that isn't currently answerable instead of going o...

Answer A: What is our position on picture identification with no research?
I'm separating this for voting purposes (since the other answer already has votes). In another answer I proposed some options for dealing with picture-identification questions. The "mildest" of these options, in terms of disruption to the community, is: > 3. Decide they are ok in limited numbe...

Question How can we grow this community?
Codidact's communities have a lot of great content that is helping people on the Internet. Our communities are small, though, and sustainable communities depend on having lots of active, engaged participants. The folks already here are doing good work; our challenge is to find more people like you ...

thought of one more that's a little more involved than the other card games

Edit Post #284953 Initial revision over 2 years ago
Answer A: What are some good games or activities to do on a hike?
I've been seeing more "pocket games" in recent years. Some are designed to be both small and short (play in the time it takes for your food to arrive at a restaurant, for example); others are a little longer. Board Game Geek has a user-curated list of pocket games; some of them won't meet your need...

I've pared this down a lot to focus on the question of what to do with these picture-ID questions. There are other issues entangled here and they're important too, but I'm trying to help the community focus on this core issue here. I'd like to see answers from more people.

Comment Post #284797 Were they? I don't recall the sequence; I know I've seen and downvoted some before I saw this thread, and then a recent batch came in after this thread. I think I would have voted the same way with or without this thread, but of course that's hard to know. I have not downvoted all of them, and I...

Comment Post #284797 I agree with @#36377; pictures that are of "public interest" are different from random pictures of ordinary things like streets or parks.

Added a note based on comment discussion.

Comment Post #284797 I hadn't thought about it that way, but I agree with you now that you've characterized it. Asking about a picture you have some *personal investment* in, and can provide at least some context for, is different from finding a picture on the Internet and just asking where it was taken. If a picture f...

Answer A: What is our position on picture identification with no research?
I don't think "where was this picture taken?" questions are generally helpful to the community.[^1] There are places out there that do "view from my window" type contests where players use information in the photo to try to nail down where it is, but those are challenges posted by someone who knows ...

Answer A: What is causing old posts to show up with recent changes?
For the question linked on 2021-01-06, the change was a deleted (spam) answer. Unfortunately, if you can't see deleted answers you can't tell that's what happened, so I understand how that was confusing. (We do want to improve how changes are reported on the question list, instead of everything jus...

Comment Post #280638 I don't think the accusatory tone of the last paragraph is helpful here. I explained in a comment what bumped the post that you asked about. That question linked to a previous meta question, which Charlie answered. I don't see "refusals" here.

Answer A: 2021 - January - Snow
In February 2010 in Pittsburgh, PA, a storm dropped 26 inches on us overnight. I do not understand the physics of how this snow along the top of a fence did that, but it stayed that way for more than a week.

Comment Post #278163 All fixed now. This happened because this site is older than the code that automatically sets up these tags and we didn't catch it. Sorry about the edit history on your question; manual tag creation (outside of use on a question) isn't part of the UI yet.
