Yes and no... Yes - we definitely need a new moderator more at least! No - on beta sites there's no election process. Instead, the current mods / SE staff invite valuable members to help on the burden. We're discussing the latter with the community managers and we expect to have news very soon. Thanks! Update 1 (20/Mar): Still waiting feedback from ...

Tags Updated There was a discussion about this in chat. After a little back-and-forth, I made some changes that will hopefully resolve this without a ton of extra work for the PMSE community. I've updated the pm-software tag to indicate that it's for stuff that doesn't already have a specific tag. I've updated ms-project to indicate when the top-level tag ...

Your mod team here has supported the idea of getting some backup, as the older answer here shows. Today, I am happy to announce that CodeGnome is joining the mod team here to provide them with that support! Please join me in welcoming this familiar face to the new job!

I now see the MS Project tag and can see where you're coming from. We generally try to keep all relevant content in the body and just use tags for categorization for grouping and searching. If someone can give the question an edit to expand it out a bit more, I'd be happy to reopen it. I'd suggest making it clear it's an MS Project problem, as well as ...

While these sorts of questions are now considered off-topic on PMSE, they weren't always. In addition, even if it were appropriate for the other site (which is debatable), migrating it will remove rep from PMSE users, and possibly unfairly skew rep on the receiving site. My personal recommendation is to close it as software recommendation (per our current ...

TL;DR I'd like to see the name changed to "The PMSE Notice Board." Reasoning I'd like to see the room name be less framework-specific, as not everyone is a Scrum practitioner. Additionally, we've had some meta discussion about the site already being too focused on software-development practices. While you can't please everyone, I think "The Scrum Room" ...

Okay. That .. took a hot second, but it's done. Those tags have been destroyed, and blacklisted along with their plurals. I've also added the intrinsic tag blacklist for project-management, which was missing, but thankfully not problematic. This resulted in more than a few untagged questions, some of which look pretty smelly, so please have a peek at them ...

Deleted, Not Flagged I eventually opted to delete the answers without flagging them as spam. I did this because: They were low quality, but not necessarily spam. The links in the edit history would have continued to feed SEO in the event that they were spam. Deleting the questions without flagging as spam seems less likely to result in punitive action by ...

The Software Recommendations SE site is an early public beta that's much different from most Stack Exchange sites. They've taken on a topic that most Stack Exchange communities aren't willing to engage, and they created a rigid set of guidelines regarding what to ask and how questions should be answered. In short, they've taken recommendation questions, ...

It seems the problem is solved now... the only "problem" to solve now would be the questions per day rate. :P BTW, for the ones interested in our stats... here they are: http://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/10947?phase=beta&users=mostactive#tab-top
