Provide my account with +5 rep
No, why would anyone do that. You have asked 119 question, with a huge amount of them wit no accepted answers or any type of feedback. Me for one remember a time where I let you email me your theme, corrected the errors for you, mailed it back and then NEVER received any feedback from you again, you also point blank refuse to ...
Yes—after a fashion
In fact, each time you approve (or edit without rejecting) a suggested edit, you provide the editor with +2 reputation (up to 1000 total). So as you approve Gabriel's suggestions, you are slowly but surely pushing them closer to earning the ability to edit without needing review.
Obviously, that's not going to end the situation of ...
Comments are temporary "Post-It" notes left on a question or answer. They can be up-voted (but not down-voted) and flagged, but do not generate reputation. There's no revision history, and when they are deleted they're gone for good.
Please note that you can always comment on your own posts, ...
Unfortunately privileges on the SE network is coupled to reputation earned and not the amount of edits, flags or any type of "moderation" work you have done. This does make the SE system a bit of a bulky, crappy system for those who really are interested in helping with the moderation of a specific site/sites.
We who do participate in the moderation queues ...
What is worthy of your upvote is entirely up to you.
The resulting sum of upvotes is expression of community opinion, but it goes from individuals to the sum. Not the other way around. Community doesn't and shouldn't dictate you this.
Always vote in line with what you think about the post.
Site docs put it simply like this:
When should I vote up?
Please note that single-instance tags (that is, tags which only exist on a single question) are automatically culled after 6 months.
Should We Zap The Low-Occurrence Tags?
It really is far too early in the lifecycle of the site for this to be an issue. I'd be more worried about finding proper tag synonyms and merges for the tags that are in active use.
By my count based on latest available data explorer snapshot less than 150 questions were asked by users with reputation over 5k.
With such required reputation virtually no tags will be created at all... other than going around and explicitly creating them.
Currently we have more than enough issues to occupy high rep users without that (thousand+ questions ...
I think 5k is too much. But 1k should be a usable limit. Our new tags get messy way too fast. From today:
… and so on. These tags are then available by autocomplete, they are used more than once and we have to clean up the mess manually.
Oh, and a link to the new tags on the review page would ...
This is the kind of feature that should have been discussed with the community first. I am vehemently opposed to such a feature.
We should be encouraging good questions and incentivizing experts to answer questions. Not, and I repeat not, penalizing those who don't ask questions.
I rarely ask questions here because I have limited time to devote to the ...
Would it fit your needs to limit new users to a limited number of tags, say your most common, or a hard-coded set of general categories?
If a tag is also the name of a forum, could that signal a warning of some sort?
I'm very new here. I posted my first question on Stack Overflow, without realizing that I should be doing it at wordpress.stackexchange....
