Should Arqade be divided into sections?

Absolutely not. Arqade is nowhere near the size of SO, which is the largest site in the network. If there are too many games, as you state, you can always ignore the tags of those games you don't ...

Could we get the Documentation feature for Arqade?

This is something I've asked SO devs before. Short answer: No. Currently Documentation is still a product that's maturing. It has been designed specifically for Stack Overflow. There are, as far as I ...

Should we have a migration path to Software Recs for game recommendation questions?

No, for the same reasons we don't migrate to GameDev. SoftwareRecs' policy on games is extremely strict. Game questions there must solve problems- not alleviate boredom and not solve a particular ...

Can I find out why a user got deleted?

@Frank is right. We don't release information on why a user was deleted, so you're just going to need to remain in the dark about it.

Add Software Request to Close -> Off Topic -> Belongs on another site?

Tag rename request : [gameboy-color] -> [game-boy-color]

Do we need a flag/close option for questions asking for people to befriend or play with them?

We won't need an extra flag option for these questions and no you've done nothing wrong by flagging the question. If you see a post that doesn't belong here but you don't have enough reputation to ...

Make searching easier by renaming [little-big-planet] → [littlebigplanet]

I don't see a need for this. As Kaizerwolf stated, other games have words from their titles broken up. Pretty much all of our tags have titles broken up whether they have spaces in them or not. If I ...

Request to move this question to SuperUser | There's a question that's not about gaming. But instead the usage of such software (the Steam platform)

I don't think this has to be moved necessarily. While it would be on-topic on SuperUser, as it's a question about computer software, and while there is a good chance that the asker gets competent ...

Could we get the Documentation feature for Arqade?

Unfortunately, No. Documentation was discontinued back in 2017 and the service shut down, thus any chance of porting it over here died with it.

Should we make an [io-game] or [internet-broswer-game] tag?

No. We answer questions that are specific to each game. There's no need for internet-browser-game because it doesn't offer anything of value. If it's a new game, use the closest tag possible. ...

Create a chat room for the posts that don't fit the Q & A guidelines

No. We don't create sites for the things SE doesn't take. That's essentially a dump site, and doomed to fail. Nobody will stick around there, and it just leads to a completely dead site.
