StackExchange doesn't do yearly elections per say. Moderators are elected for as long as they are willing to do the position. Because of this, elections only happen if it's either decided we need another, one of them decides to step down, or one is found derelict or incompetent. Our moderators are pretty efficient, so I don't see the site needing a fourth ...

I apologize and have undeleted your answer. I also edited it substantially, not so much because the original was incorrect, but so that it makes more sense in context. Hopefully some of that is self-explanatory and the rest I'll try to clear up here. My original comment, that "this is exactly the same as at least a few of the existing answers" is sort of ...

This seems to be a problem many people have. Below on the left you will see an answer that has not been accepted. On the right is one that has. Only the original author of the question sees the version on the left since only the author may select it -- thus you must be logged in. To accept an answer, click on the checkmark. You may untick, or select a ...

You've been doing a great job editing, please keep it up. However, I have been trying to attract your attention, as some of your edits were not good enough and I wanted to discuss them with you. Make sure you are reading the reasons why your edits are rejected. Some of them were recommendations that you come to talk with my in chat. Please read this ...

Thanks for posting. I've messaged the user in question regarding their accounts, but it's really their call whether they'd like to merge them or not. As detailed in this Meta post, there isn't a hard site policy on multiple accounts - you're free to do so provided you don't use them to upvote each other or otherwise manipulate the reputation system. If a ...

According to Markdown Editing Help, to add code formatting inside the list, indent the line with 8 spaces instead. Markdown: 4. Preformatted text in a list item: Skip a line and indent eight spaces. That's four spaces for the list and four to trigger the code block. Rendered: Preformatted text in a list item: Skip a line and ...

Two things: Any time you need to put multiple paragraphs under a single list item, just indent each paragraph after the first by one space to avoid breaking the list. Like this If you want a code block in a list, indent by eight spaces (don't surround it in backticks). Here's your example, properly formatted: Stuff about Raspberry Pi, here's an example: ...

Ask Ubuntu is a part of a special partnership with the company behind Ubuntu, Canonical. While this site is in beta, it's unlikely that we'd form a similar partnership with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, although it's certainly not out of the question in the future. We can explore that as the site grows and gets closer to graduation. So, we can't put a link ...

Your answer was flagged as "spam" by another user and while this claim is probably a little over the top I deleted it for two reasons: You're using the answer to request more information (Are you trying to connect to captive portals...). This does not belong to the answer section but should be done using comments. The answer is not specific to the ...

The general rule is not to migrate questions with answers. So your first question should not be migrated. The second has no answers so you can simply delete it and post it on U&L yourself.

I think (and hope) that just a little cooling down is necessary here. It is worthwhile to separate the issues that seem to have gotten entangled thus leading to a heated discussion. Links to relevant research or external references are encouraged on StackExchange but they should always be put into context. Problem with a google-link are that it is a) not ...

You cannot flag tags. Just bring the issue up on meta (like you did) to have the tag either deleted or synomynized with another. I merged it with pi-3 which is canonical for this model. Thanks for bringing it up!

Patience, my young Padawan. Handing out badges does not seem to be instantaneous.

You may only submit up to 5 suggested edits at a time; beyond this, you will receive the message in your image. The following users can review your edits: Two users with more than 2,000 rep One diamond moderator The author of the post, unilaterally. When your edits get reviewed depends on when one of the above users notices your edits and reviews them; ...

Migration paths for non-mods are limited, unfortunately. The list can be added to, on non-beta sites (but still not easily -- there tends to be some politics involved, I think). I.e., it is meta or bust for us. Mods get to send stuff wherever they like, of course. :D At least until the nice men in white coats show up. I am currently fixated on finding a ...

If I may say, I completely agree with a declined flag is not a disaster. I have quite a few declined flags myself... So do not worry. On the other hand I'd like to point out that your participation in the site, both in contributing content and in the housekeeping-work including voting, reviewing, editing is highly appreciated. If that particular close vote ...

See this for more information: Too many of your edits were rejected, try again in 7 days in particular the accepted answer: I just amended it to take into account your accepts. When deciding on whether we should ban or not, we now look at your last 7 days of activity. If (rejects - approvals / 3) > 5, you will be auto-banned.

You only get +2 reputation when you edit a post if: Your edit is suggested - i.e. you have less than 2k rep (when editing posts posts) or less than 20k rep (for editing tag wikis) You have earned less than 1000 rep total from suggested edits If you have more than the required rep, or you have already earned 1k rep from suggested edits, then you will not ...

Possibly the definitive answer to this is to be found on Meta, but rather than dig around I'll make a quick distinction: "I wish to quote some code..." "content published here is to be licensed with a (modified?) MIT licence" These don't refer to the same event. If I write a paper for publication somewhere and cite someone else's work properly, I am not ...

Worth a read: How do we encourage edits to obsolete/out of date answers? How to deal with obsolete answers? The linked question is from 2012 and it makes no mention of the type and model of the Pi neither in the body nor using tags. However based on its data we could read the question being focused on the early models only. A new question for the Pi 2 ...

That is strange; it was my understanding that you can always see your own deleted posts. In any case, you presumably mean this: PyCharm 2017.3.3 hangs Magic!

Although the author says that it should be a comment, what they wrote isn't actually something that would need to be posted as a comment. Comments here are primarily for requesting clarification or suggesting improvements to a post. They aren't really intended for discussion, half-answers, related anecdotes, or just as a space for anything that's not an ...

If not actually on the Raspberry Pi it would be off-topic. Or as the helpcenter has it: Please make sure that your questions are intrinsically Raspberry Pi oriented. Once you put it in a RPi and it still is a problem it will be on-topic here. Note however that it is never appropriate to cross-post the same question across different sites of the ...

This seems to have come up time and time again - but seriously, does it really matter? Are we not spending time over the wrong things here? Should our effort not be focused on more important things such as those 7 essential meta questions floating around, attracting more members to the site, posting good, useful questions and answers and so on? As long as ...

Thanks much for noticing this and pointing it out here. The issue has been corrected!

You have an account with 101 rep on the main site. The "protected" banner says: This question is protected to prevent "thanks!", "me too!", or spam answers by new users. To answer it, you must have earned at least 10 reputation on this site. However, there is a subtlety here in the wording, "earned". The 100 bonus you receive for being a member ...
