I pretty much gave up closing and close-vote reviewing during the recent Monica fiasco. Although I totally agree that closing bad questions is the right thing to do, and although I think I can safely say I've done my share of closing and reviewing, I gave up reviewing for two main reasons: It shouldn't be the moderators job to do the bulk of the closing ...

I'm not against this change, but I don't know whether it'll do very much. I keep on top of the close votes review queue, to keep it under control, and it's pretty rare that I hit a question that has 3 or 4 close votes already; typically I'm diamond-smashing things that only have one, or maybe two, close votes (or often even just a flag). I obviously can't ...

The devops site is still in beta, so by the company's rules it is not possible to add it to a migration list. The reasoning for this is that sites have to be able to stand on their own and pull in their own audience without relying on network migrations. Further, I don't think there are sufficient people here who are motivated to do any migrations (anywhere)...

Thanks everyone for the feedback ! As the feedback is nuanced in the answers provided; not a No, but more like a shy Yes, but the suggestion is kinda up-voted much. I asked a CM and it's a change that can be reverted easily if it's not positive, to quote Catija on my question; We start every site with a test for 30 days. After that, we assess the ...

I agree with Ward, the community should be doing more of this but the fundamental problem has always been there aren't enough people voting to close. I could be wrong about this but there seems to be more off-topic questions lately. For example this person: https://serverfault.com/users/469795/bliako Asked three off-topic questions for essentially ...

For such suggestion I think it must be asked on MSE, but please validate if it was already asked in the past there. I would not migrate directly as often duplicate get downvoted a lot on MSE I think the rational of MSE is you can be a good programmer, but a total outsider to be a sysadmin, thus the right gain are by site. A good exemple; I'am French ...

Because it doesn't relate to your management of an IT system in a professional capacity. The question also qualifies for closure under the "opinion-based" (because Internet randos really can't speculate as to why Facebook does what it does) and "too broad" (because there are many possible reasons for why the described configuration might be used) close ...

My (extremely) understanding of the Ansible ecosystem is that "Ansible" by itself most properly refers to the entire suite of Ansible-related tools, with most people understanding that saying "ansible" by itself in an appropriate context refers to the playbook tool, for backwards-compatibility purposes. If that's a correct understanding, would it make more ...
