Stack Exchange exists to build a resource of knowledge that will help future visitors for years to come. In order to accomplish that goal and live up to that ideal, we need a steady stream of both great questions as well as great answers. The thing about answers is they need questions. If no one asks questions, there's nothing to answer. What's more, ...

Agree on this, and I love to stick to patterns. It's done!

Welcome to Stack Exchange. I'm one of our site moderators here, along with our community of higher reputation and experienced Stack Exchange users, to help guide and teach new users about our Q&A platform. On Stack Exchange, our goal is different than that of a traditional forum. Instead of pages and pages of "me too" posts and back and forth, ...

There are two possible culprits here: Caching is in place to save the database from unnecessary load. Review counter is not personalized. You may have reviewed everything but all those posts may still be waiting for other reviewers. References: It is also cached, so may or may not be very accurate depending on the amount of ongoing activity in /review ...

Sounds like a math specific question and therefore relevant to the math site. Doesn't seem like a fit here since most of the most widely known pm approaches do not use heavy math nor have math as a prerequisite. There are, of course, areas such as risk management, running monte carlo simulations and other areas where math is used. But I don't think that's ...

As I read the question, it does not (only) ask for the location of the latest Scrum guide, but it also askes if and how the Scrum process is versioned. Based on that, I did come to the conclusion that the answer you linked to is flag-worthy as "Not an Answer". Besides that, I believe flagging the answer as "Very Low Quality" would also be ...

This is the result of a network wide bug with tag scores and associated badges. It was fixed yesterday, Stack Exchange developer @Taryn wrote quite a lengthy explanation about it. At the moment, it's unclear whether the badges will be redated to their original date or not.

The Problem The original question, which the OP keeps rolling back, is off-topic for a number of reasons defined in our Help Center, including: "your question is just a rant in disguise: “______ sucks, am I right?” The OP says: "I blame our Agile approach for encouraging this particular problem, am I wrong?" "there is no actual problem to be solved: “...

TL;DR By all means, invest time in improving questions and answers on the site whenever you come across a post that needs improvement. However, actively seeking out edits that are primarily "missions of grammar" or otherwise trivial edits can waste other people's time, and may color their perception of the editor's activities on the site. You don't want ...

Thinking of this tag usage, I'd say that 'Process Engineering' would be used when one tries to improve a process that already exists or would need to define something that's not structured yet. Going a step back, quoting 'Engineering definition' from Google (apologies, as a non-native English speaker I like to double check I'm not - at least - completely ...

welcome to PMSE! I believe that as of now, is hard to understand what your problem is, what you're trying to obtain by documenting your application landscape. Are you trying to meet some CMMi standards? Follow ITIL guidelines? So long you can make the community understand that the problem you're addressing is a project management problem, it could fit. ...

Thanks for raising this in Meta before posting to the site itself - +1 for that. In my opinion PM:SE is not a good fit for this question as it is not about the mechanics or theory of Project Management, even though it is likely some contributors here would have faced this task as part of a project at some time. I am not aware of another SE site that would ...

good evening I believe this might answer your question: Users with more than 1250 reputation and a total answer score of 5 or more on the tag, can suggest tag synonyms. Users with a total answer score (total upvotes minus total downvotes) of 5 or more on the tag, can vote for tag synonyms. Suggestions will be automatically approved when they ...

There are currently only 10 questions that are tagged "process engineering", so retagging should be fairly straightforward. However, we most likely wouldn't blacklist it unless it keeps reappearing after removal. It's possible that this actually refers to business process re-engineering, as defined by Wikipedia: Business process re-engineering is a ...

The question was based on a misunderstanding of how Scrum is "versioned." There's no "Scrum 2.0" or "Scrum 3.0", so the question itself was flawed. The accepted answer addresses this in detail, and I myself added a comment pointing out that this was a problematic way to phrase the underlying question. In this answer here on meta,...

In my opinion, the Disclaimer: We are a Microsoft Partner. part is necessary in order to avoid being flagged for spam. The rest of it, though, is irrelevant. My suggestion would therefore be to pare down the disclaimer.

Analysis There's no definitive answer to your question, because circumstances vary. Answers that really are "exact duplicates" are rare, but answers that are similar or quote the same facts are very common. Expressing the same answer in different ways is okay, but answers that don't add anything new (e.g. additional facts, different conclusions, or greater ...

SE Sites Have Community-Developed Norms and Values Part of your issue is that you aren't understanding that that PMSE (like most SE sites) has both a community culture and a set of norms that have evolved over time. As much as we can, we document these in the help section, but like any social group some of these things are simply "tribal knowledge" ...

With just slight variations in the working culture (do people get tasks assigned, or do they pull from a backlog), the scope of the work considered when writing the answer and the expertise of the involved people, I would be able to write two completely valid and opposing answers. And only if you had a preconceived notion of what answer you want to hear ...

When facts are not available decisions are hard. Decisions become based on opinion, or who has more experience and time in the community. As the moderator Tiago Cardoso says Rules, as any tool, are a means to a purpose. In the case of community rules, the purpose is to make posts as useful as possible. Happens that if someone start bulk editing ...

I'd say the same approach for tag edition applies - edit is encouraged when it really adds value (i.e. no trivial edit) OR you can do it without keeping stuff queued up for review (i.e. edit priviledge). The case of "grammatical or spelling mistakes" are focused (IMHO) on posts written by non-native English speakers with several errors. Otherwise, an ...

The OP is rolling back the question to a format which does not meet the PM.SE guidelines for a lot of reasons include opinion-based. Either the edits are enforced or the question needs closed. It is clear the OP is now trolling the site and I have flagged this to Mods who have not taken action.

The tag synopsis clearly states that this tag is for use as follows: For questions related to the (re-)design of business processes. Project management is all about processes, including the design and control of such. While the OP should feel free to suggest improvements to the tag that add clarity or differentiate between valid and invalid applications ...
