Yes, why not. There's no reason why we shouldn't opt-in. If Android likes to be cool, why its Enthusiasts can't. Go for it without turning back...

I propose that that line should instead read: Issues with Google Play (or any other app marketplace) from the point of view of a developer or publisher This way, we get to make it clear that issues with Amazon App Store etc. (from the POV of a developer) are also off-topic.

There are four "hey, that worked for me! thanks!" answers from unregistered users.

I'm one of the mods beeshyams discussed this in chat, and I've also checked some of the questions using this tag. My results where exactly the same, as was my conclusion: replace the power by one of power-on, power-options, charging, battery-life if one of those "replacement tags" is already present, and none of the others fits, simply remove the power if ...

Just thought I'd share some pics, as some of the others have done on Programmers.SE. With my Android mini-figure: The whole package, minus the blue StackExchange box: I think the letter with Joel Spolky's sig (despite not addressed to me) is the BEST PART of the package. PRICELESS. THANK YOU StackEchange for these goodies!

5 points is the number of reputation points you receive when someone votes one of your questions up. It's most likely that someone who had voted up one of your questions in the recent past has been banned or deleted, so their impact on the site has been automatically reversed. See also: “User was removed” means I lose my hard-earned points?


6

As you've noticed, you need more reputation points to comment on someone else's post than to ask or answer a question. Why's that? Because new users don't always understand how this site is different from a web forum or a mailing list. They don't always realise that Stack Exchange sites have questions and answers, rather than threads and replies. Sometimes, ...

If there is no particluar reason for a subversion tag, which seems to be the case, then we don't need one and the two tags should get merged.

From your screenshot, it looks like you've hit the font selection problem with the Roboto font. If you install Roboto under Linux, then when a site or program asks for Roboto, it gets "Roboto Medium" (which is quite heavyweight) instead of "Roboto Regular" (which looks normal). This is a problem with how the weights are set in the font files. This site has ...

I agree. As the 1+1 uses oneplus-one, I'd say oneplus-two should be the one to stay. There's no oneplus-1 synonym, so I guess we don't want oneplus-2 stay as such?

It seems like you are unable to reach http://stack.imgur.com/ where most images on the SX network are hosted. The images work for me. Maybe your network admistrator has blocked imgur.com for some reason.

Tags and their structure are very site specific. A user should have some knowledge on how a site does organize its tags in order to create new one. That's one reason why you need 300 rep here and why it doesn't matter what position or how much rep you have on other sites.

This will be fixed in the next build, which should be in the next 8 hours.

Though the system does this automatically after a certain amount of deleted answers (IIRC it was 5, but yours currently only has 3), I've protected it now on your request.

I like the suggestion. And it's even better if we have a volunteer. :) If there are no objections and counter arguments, then the separation should get done.


4

Yes, this does appear to have been a case where two tags were synonymized but not merged, thereby leaving behind reset on the questions that had it at the time the synonym was created. I've retagged all such questions, so it should no longer appear in the list as anything other than a synonym of factory-reset.

If you don't take any time to learn anything about the site you're visiting, it's not going to work for you. Start here. We're not obligated to help you, and we are a community-led site. Driveby comments that can be left by anyone are not in our best interest. You will notice that you don't even need to sign up to post a question or answer, however. ...


4

Good catch. Not sure where that come from, but I'm pushing a fix now. It should be resolved in our next production build.


4

I've restored the previous style. Given that it is shared across all sites, I did not make an exception here. Perhaps in the future.


4

IMHO it's useless. As you (@Izzy) said, the file-system is the appropriate one for this situation, preferably with a clarifying clause in the question body (or, even better, in the title). That's not to mention this tag (read-only) is nowadays a total misnomer except when it comes to the ARM TrustZone TPM chip firmware, which is (hopefully) burnt-in. Nearly ...

I agree that power is a bit uninformative. I'm not yet convinced that making it a synonym for power-on is the right thing in the long term. While a lot of existing uses of power are about startup, there are a lot more about the power button. If those questions start being tagged with power-on, then that tag will become as useless as power is now. Maybe we ...

Good catch. By popular demand google-mail now points to gmail.


3

Good catch. Merged and synonym created.


3

Good catch. recovery is now a synonym of recovery-mode.


3

Done, I agree with your assessment.

Edit: Fixed! See the new answer on the below Meta post. It's because he has 1 rep temporarily: Bug in 'Late Answers' Review Tab I think this is an unintended sideffect? Or at least a confusing way to have this work.

I've re-opened it. I don't think one person verifying that they can see the buttons is enough to say that no one else will be unable to see them, like you. I can't think of any reason why this would be happening to you and only you, so I think it passes the "potentially useful to others" metric. The nature of the question obviously changed due to the ...

This is fixed and should be pushed out in the next deployment.


3

This has now been implemented.

Merged and synonymized. Thanks.
