Basically, what I'd like to do is get community 'permission' to do the following over the next few weeks (for whats left of June, and then thereafter whenever I have time):
Completely destroy and utterly eradicate the following tags:
Try and clean up our duplicates, primarily:
- all those "I can't login" questions.
- The 'unity is broken' ones.
- Clean up the low graphics mode ones
- Any others the community thinks there might be a fair amount of.
Hack my way through the latest data dump and close all those dupes that slipped through the cracks.
Why am I writing this? I mean, I'm a moderator, it's my job to intervene in situations like this, right?
I'm proposing a massive undertaking. If I'm going to undertake something this big in a period of weeks (not months), I should have a stamp of community approval.
Not only the above, but a little help now and then would be appreciated. ;)
Lastly, while I think I'll have my plate full, I think having the community give me possible 'targets' for cleaning would be artificial.
Why am I doing this now, instead of earlier? I mean, this would have been nice during the 12.04 release week!
Well, this summer I have a part time job, and no school. As such, I have 2-3 days a week to devote (as in, a 9-5 job) to doing stuff like this, so I'd like to get stuff done while I can (Making hay while the sun shines type thing).
If the community has any comments, please make them - I'm planning on going full speed ahead on June 11th (roughly).
I'd like to note one more thing: As I'm going through the three tags listed above, I will be closing them as bugs (so off-topic). I will leave comments. If people have a problem with that, lets talk about how I can make that "not a problem", either through peer review, a weekly list of all the ones I've taken action on, etc. However, since I've been accused of a 'shoot-first-ask-questions-later' mentality, I want to make this clear.
colorsfall in the cleanup category?
