NO. Sorry, but no. If the OP is so lazy they can't even be bothered to try and use Google Translate themselves, then we should absolutely not do it for them. As you say, Google Translate translations tend to be bad, and an OP who isn't even willing to put in the minimum effort required to realize that they are posting in a language that is not the language ...

I don't think that should happen. If that person knows an answer to the question, then they should post an answer. They can ask for clarification in comments. Chat also exists for extended discussion. Posting half answers in comments is already discouraged, because if the commenter's suggestion is wrong, we can't downvote it. I would even go so far as to say ...

Chat has never been a priority for SE but if that changes and they decide they want to put some work into it, then I would say that the absolute least important thing to do would be this kind of purely cosmetic changes. We have real issues with chat moderation, the way it is split across servers in some cases (MSE chat, SO chat and SE chat), the way it is ...

Sure. Why not? What would be the basis for considering such questions off-topic? Questions about configuring any desktop environment on Ubuntu can be asked. The question in question was rightly closed because the OP was running Manjaro. If they were running Ubuntu (including all official flavors), then there would be no scope issue with the question. There ...

Thanks for posting about this topic. I think it is a real problem that meta participation has declined, because if a smaller proportion of site users participate in meta, the site becomes less democratic. As you mentioned in a comment, meta is not very discoverable. It became less discoverable in October 2017 with the implementation of the new top bar which, ...

A flag to close a post is considered to be handled if it is marked helpful. This happens if the post receives at least one close vote, regardless of the outcome of the close review. For example, you flagged Ubuntu 20.04 disappears from Windows 10 WSL2 after reboot for closure, and another user subsequently voted to close it (I can see this in the post ...

You posted your answer to Keyboard not working on desktop in Ubuntu 20.04 - you will be able to see it there, though without a link to that page you would not have been able to find it. Sorry about that. Here's a screenshot of your post, which was deleted by me: I deleted your post because I did not consider it to be an answer to the question - rather I ...

To my experience with Ask Ubuntu Canonical Question is a normal question in Ask Ubuntu. They are not featured by the Stack Exchange QA system (with a label or flag) but by Users. There is no static list that can hold all of them and community can't keep it updated at least. Many of them can be found using "Most Frequent" or "Most Votes" ...

This should work out okay in theory, since when viewing a post one can see that an edit suggestion is pending, though this is indicated in subtle manner (a tiny parenthetical number next to the Edit button) that could be easily missed. One ought to notice this when handling the flag to see if the comment is being made obsolete by the pending edit suggestion. ...

I'm new here Welcome! Is logging out of askubuntu.com the same as logging out of the Ubuntu Software Centre, which seems not to be possible? And no, askubuntu.com and the Software Center are two completely different logins, managed by two different, completed unrelated companies: Software Center is an application created and managed by Canonical Ltd., ...

Are they not duplicates just because they're upvoted? If there are good answers you want to see in the dupe target, then the posts should be merged. I don't see any reasoning whatsoever as to why these posts aren't answered by the duplicate targets. At any rate, this explains why the swap post kept popping up in the reopen queue without any justification at ...

@user.dz's answer is all good, but I want to add (opinionated) reasons why your approach will be hard to achieve. You have a lot of meta-information in your question's body. Out of the whole text, the only relevant part is "What's the best way to troubleshoot a non-functional WiFi?". When users are looking for an answer to their problem, they need ...

I agree with Mark Kirby's answer. While we don't have much control on others content. There are few features that may help: For the new answer: Start with Markdown header1 and may be quoted note for highlighting. Put a hint about answers didn't work for you. From user looking for help prospective, I personally keep toggling the answer sorting switch: Votes ...
