A friendly challenge!

The title says "A friendly challenge", but really, what this is is a duel. For honor and glory. There is no possible good outcome to a duel. PPCG is going to lose. Then you'll be out for revenge a ...

A friendly challenge!

No. This will not be a battle between PPCG and CR. In fact, it is not acceptable to post a challenge on PPCG where only some people are allowed to participate. Now you might say "Anyone is welcome to ...

A friendly challenge!

I think this is pretty much doomed from the outset (but don't let me stop you having fun). To see why it's doomed, imagine things were the other way round: Hey, PPCG, let's have a collaboration to ...

New tag proposition: Leetcode

Forgive my bluntness, but absolutely not. Today it's leetcode, yesterday it was hackerrank and tomorrow it might be who-knows-what. But what value does it add to know that by the tags? Are there ...

I suggest two tags, [readability] and [compatibility]

We are actively trying to reduce "meta tags". For example, see: Optimize our meta tags? Tags are expected to summarize the content of the code in the question. They are not expected to summarize the ...

A "The answer's author agreed to this edit in question" button which could be used only if code was expanded

No. No custom button for "answerer approved edits". I have multiple concerns. The primary one being that code-editing in (answered) questions is complex enough as it is, and the default case should ...

Give [jison] a higher tag priority than [javascript]

To make jison be in the title it has to be the most popular tag on the question. Since it has one question you'd have to remove all the other tags, which I'd advise against. As Malachi has mentioned ...

Change the licensing of code in Code Review contributions to MIT

Stack Exchange staff proposed a license change to MIT within the last year. In my argument against the change, I pointed out that it was a bad idea, especially for Code Review, since our intention is ...

A "The answer's author agreed to this edit in question" button which could be used only if code was expanded

For the record, the full comment: For the record, usually we're against updating the code in the question after answers have been received. It creates a mess if more answers come in, reviews of all ...

Adding alternative answer comment to low quality posts queue

When I come across these answers I mark them as This is a different question posted as an answer. To me that's the best option of the current set - it is not a ...

Change the licensing of code in Code Review contributions to MIT

Problems you point out with the CC-BY-SA license: Incompatible with major software licenses Code has to be re-licensed, if incompatible And so I think you're coming at this completely the wrong way. ...

Synonym request for tag [animations], proposed synonym [easing]

No I don't think this solves anything. Maybe I'm different to most as I normally pick well known categories and groups. Think [math] rather than [binomial expansion]. There are not many easing ...

Can we disable "Questions that may already have your answer?"

Unfortunately, this is not something we can support or special-case, at least not in the foreseeable future. As most of you are aware, Code Review is a bit of a special site; questions are not asked ...

Adding alternative answer comment to low quality posts queue

I'm reasonably sure that the set of review comments is common to the whole Stack Exchange network, so we can't adapt these to Code Review. My usual approach is just to add a canned comment (using the ...

Should Code Review improve the new-question Title hint?

Since all titles have to be unique[a] [b] users can run into problems titling questions. The example in [b] shows users are being forced to turn simple question titles into bloated titles; "I ...

Warn if question is tagged with [python-3.x] but not [python]

After discussing this internally, we've decided to pass on adding explicit support for dependent tags at this time. Creating nested categories is certainly a legitimate way to organize content, but ...

Providing optional pre-commit (style) feedback on question uploads?

I am suspicious about fully automated bot answering questions. Especially as linters often give pointless or harmful suggestions and blind obedience is not a good idea. But it is entirely OK for user ...

Can we disable "Questions that may already have your answer?"

As you said, it does not make sense to close them as a duplicate as they should be just as welcome, not only because the code may be a little different, but also that conventions may (READ: will) ...
