The moderator team will have a little less shine, but you can bow out proudly.
Nobody asked you to take the job, and you did it for 2 years. And smashing everybody else in terms of flags sorted.
We will see you around! You may lose the diamond, but I'll always enjoy your presence.
It's been an honour moderating alongside you Wrigglenite!
Thank you for all the effort you've put in over the years, you've always gone above and beyond what is expected for mods. Your passion for the site and community is obvious, and we're all the better for having it.
I wish you all the best for the future, and hope to see you around soon :)
You'll be sorely missed! You've always been the strongest advocate for quality on the moderator team, and things just won't be the same without your input.
Best of luck in the future, and don't be a stranger!
One thing to keep in mind is that in a lot of cases, there is also the possibility that an accepted answer is actually the NEWER answer, which takes into account new information or applies to a more recent client version.
I modified Wondercricket's query from the comments to account for dates, and in roughly half of the roughly 3000 queries that have the ...
Though I haven't served along side you for very long, I do know you have been a moderator/member of the site for a while who truly wanted what was in the community's best interest. I still remember when you went from "DanmakuGrazer" to "Wrigglenite" and I had to stop for a second to figure out who this was...
All the best, and I'm sure we ...
I think accepted answers should be unpinned. While we may not see this issue as much as Stack Overflow, I have certainly seen cases where the accepted answer is no longer the best answer, or even is outright wrong, but is still the first answer anyone sees when they visit the question.
While accepting an answer is important, votes are a better indicator of ...
I still believe it would be off-topic.
My reasoning is:
If we go by the tags definition, we only allow these questions when they contain a screenshot, video, or audio clip, none of which you will be able to provide it sounds.
Your four bullet points would all be based off of a "description of what you can recall from memory", to quote the tag.
First, let me recommend going through the Tour. Also, feel free to go through some of the articles in the Help Center, such as this and this.
Basically, Arqade is a Q&A site for questions related to playing games, but there are some restrictions. For example, asking for a list of games meeting a certain criteria is off-topic.
As for the specific ...
I was the one who flagged it as spam, and my reasons were:
It was put into the First Answers queue, where the system identified it as spam (there was a message banner on the review item stating this)
There was no clear description provided on how to use this mod, other than "you can set a config." This doesn't really make it spam-like, but it ...
At present, the current way to use these queues is to either leave feedback using the canned comments, (which get written on the post by the Community user), mark the post as "Looks Ok", or edit the post in question. You can also perform an "Other Action" (see below) to also finish the review item. You can flag the post if it needs it, ...
With games-as-a-service being the industry trend I would vote to unpin accepted answers from the top.
Constant changes to games will see to it that even solid answers from the past can be quickly outdated.
Something not really taken into account is that the highest scoring answer is sometimes not the best/correct answer either. It could be well written but objectively wrong, it could be outdated, or higher scoring by virtue of being posted earlier.
For cases where the OP is still active, this will remove their ability to 'pin' the most up to date answer by way ...
In short, you can't.
That being said, votes on Stack Exchange sites are indicative of one thing, and one thing only; how the community at large feels about the quality of posts. To quote the tour page:
Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.
The voting system is unfortunately, highly subjective. While I may find your question intriguing, and the ...
