Disclaimer: I'll use 'post' to refer to both questions and answers. I believe the same applies for both. So, all 'intervention' actions are ways to tell the original poster that something is not good or not good enough. The gap between not good and not good enough will likely help to define the approach. From 'Not Good Enough' to 'WTF': When a post is ...

In my opinion, those are all valid responses. Depends on what you mean by "dodgy". Below are some opinions about some of the related issues. I've tried to highlight the fact that these are opinions by being somewhat lighthearted. Meta is where the culture is formed. IMHO you've done right to ask in meta - this is where we form the culture, the norms ...

This is sort of a late answer, but I wanted to add that I oftentimes check the PMSE Notice Board for activity. CodeGnome and Aziz hang out in there quite a bit, and we often post links to questions that we need to watch. I'm thinking if more higher rep users in the 500+ range dropped by, it could help get those extra close votes needed to put on hold some ...

As far as I can see, most of these questions are being raised by new users in PMSE (the most seasoned ones already know that there are plenty of topics on the pm-software tag).

This one has been on my radar for some time now, and I was sort of waiting for the right time to bring this one up. Now is just as good as any time. :) This question is literally our ...

I'm one of those people who always flags these questions for you & the other moderators. To my mind there are many duplicates (or at least a lot of overlap) and at least in the short time I've been part of this community these questions tend more toward polling (e.g. "Which Collaboration Software Do You Use?") rather than the Q&A format through which ...

Pawel, flag the questions. As a moderator I try to be fast and responsive to address flagged questions. If a question lingers for a while without action, it often means I have looked at it but am unsure as to what to do. I leave it open for other moderators and the user community to add in any feedback or take action, if they have a more clear feeling on ...
