Yes. Content you create is yours. There was briefly a clause in the Terms and Conditions that —by my reading— had the inadvertent impact of demanding attribution. I also occasionally write technical blog posts so I shared your concern. I pointed this out and the offending clause was promptly fixed. So again, things you create and submit here remain yours. ...

Thank you for raising this case, which turns out to be a thought-provoking one, and given the views on the two questions, one deserving of attention. Thinking about it, the valid answers to the question "Is there a command to factory reset Ubuntu?" are a subset of the valid answers to "Is there a way to factory reset Ubuntu?", which the target question of ...

Assuming Unicode provided a nice standardised method to do so, it would be good to ensure that all usernames include printable characters, to exclude usernames consisting entirely of either whitespace or non-printing characters. Such a test might include normalising whitespace, trimming whitespace and comparing the result to an empty string. As to whether ...

I believe that off-topic* questions should in general be deleted. In particular, questions which have been closed with no good answers are dead ends in searches, so removing them is likely to make the site more useful to visitors. If the question has been asked on another site, there is even less reason for it to live on here. There are a number of tools to ...

You're just new here and this is not a forum which most users are familiar with: this is a Question & Answer site and as a picture says more than a 1000 words: We're like the little asterisk in the middle, so take the tour and then read the help pages because we like to have well-defined questions that lead to well-defined answers without opinions, just ...

Not as far as I know, no. There are many usernames across the network with non ASCII characters. There's even one, particularly annoying, instance of a user whose name consists entirely of unicode whitespace characters. While I agree that it can indeed be cumbersome to communicate with these users if you don't happen to have the same keyboard layout as them,...

I think the existing rules apply: if something isn't adding relevant information to a post, it is noise and it is better to remove it. Unless a question is actually about emojis, they don't add anything useful to a post, so I don't see why they should be treated any differently to any other type of noise. More importantly, emojis often don't render ...

This tag is in use and fully on topic, but remember your question should be specific and clear, see the software-recommendation tag info: Questions asking for specific applications that perform a given task or work with a given file format. Give details about the purpose of the software you want and your minimum requirements for it. You know what ...

No it's not the same. Clearly this is something the community was willing to take action on as the question was re-opened and a quality answer was provided by sudodus..
