One post per device for rooting questions is OK. Don't even make them CW, this only prevents people from answering because they don't get any reputation. They will automatically become CW when it's time for it.

I am very unlikely to root my device, so I don't really have any skin in this game. That said, I do believe the current canonical question is getting too big and unwieldy. I think "How do I root device X" or, even better, "How do I root Y class of devices" is a good way to go. I'm concerned, though, about the different ways one can root a device. I would ...

Sent this to you via email. Also posting here in case other people may use for on their sites/apps.

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 ...

Now that the changes have been live for a while I would tend to agree. The old tag should be a synonym for the new and the tag wiki should very obviously state that the thing wasn't always named that. Up until April 2012, the Google Play Store was known as the Android Market and was changed as part of Google's initiative to consolidate their marketplace ...

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!

maps is now the master and map is a synonym.

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?

In my opinion, this is a fine idea for a "cannonical question". It does come up rather regularly and the solution is generically the same regardless of the device (root, install a Google apps package and/or a ROM that includes them). My suggestion would be for the question to be entitled something like "Google Play is not pre-installed on my device, is ...

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.

Sounds right to me. The new tag is nook-color with no synonyms. Two questions were about the app, and are now tagged with nook-for-android instead.

Since circa 2011 all of the Stack Exchange sites have mobile-optimized versions. If you're stuck in the desktop version you can force yourself into the mobile version by clicking the "mobile" link at the bottom of the page. Conversely, if you find yourself in the mobile version and want to force your browser back to the desktop version, click the "full ...

Yup, not sure how I screwed up those href attributes. It's fixed now, thanks.

This is done. I ended up performing the following steps: Retagged a few questions that were using unlocking inappropriately Renamed unlocking to sim-unlocking Made sim-locked a synonym of sim-unlocking since it was only used a few times and always in the same context Made screen-unlock and unlock-screen synonyms of lock-screen.

Well, this is part-and-parcel of Change the primary tag for certain Google renamed services? I suppose this question is probably a duplicate. The app recently had its name changed to Google Play Music, so I think the tag for that should be google-play-music. The store/service is really google-play-store-music but do we really want questions tagged with ...

I went ahead and merged the older tags with their newer rebranded versions. Just to record exactly what was changed, I merged and synonymized the following: market is now google-play-store google-places is now google-plus-local google-books is now google-play-books google-music is now google-play-music google-docs is now google-drive (reverted due to this ...

I made mac-os-x the parent of both osx and mac. The latter only had one about MAC addresses (which I retagged) and I don't think we had any questions about pre-OSX Macs.

I suggest simply making the jailbreak a synonym of rooting. This way users who try to use the tag are automatically pointed to the right term/tag.

In favor. Normally I would say different apps. but Angry Birds is Angry Birds. :)
