You're right, the tag covers too much (file format and formatting a drive are barely if at all related), and is being used even for other types of "format" like date format and text format. We should definitely get rid of it. I don't think we need a tag for file formats in general. This is not likely to be anyone's area of interest or expertise. ...

There already is a tag hard-drive that is "Questions about hard drives, configuring and formatting them." format includes questions about things like SD cards and flash memory, which aren't really hard drives. I should think we'd rather need something like block-devices or something. In my opinion, even a tag about file formats is way too broad. I ...

I guess I was the first one to use the review-audits tag. (https://meta.askubuntu.com/revisions/19292/1) The reason why I used the review-audits tag was because the Meta Stack Exchange has a tag named review-audits (https://meta.stackexchange.com/tags/review-audits/info). Also, I didn't know that there's a tag named audits. One more thing to note is that in ...

Since new users don't have the privilege to comment anywhere except on their own questions, answers to their questions, and their own answers, suggesting that the system considers it important to allow them to comment there, I don't agree with advising people not to use the Add Comment button. While it's true that many of the requests we make in comments on ...

I believe review-audits is a better tag name than audits. The main reason is what you say: it is less ambiguous. But there is another, minor reason. review-audits will be easier to find and, for users who are less familiar with meta, easier to apply. This is because its name contains both "review" and "audits". When askers are typing into ...

So... I understand that you've been having some struggles the last few days. I'm one of the Community Managers here on Stack Exchange. As far as I'm aware, the issues you've had over the last week have been on Mathematics, so I'm not really sure this is the best forum for your question. Considering that, I'll be closing it after I answer it but I didn't want ...

The short answer here is that chat suspensions are global (there are some other chat servers, but your suspension is on the one where both Mathematics and Ask Ubuntu chatrooms reside). When one is suspended on the site of one's chat "parent user" (your chat parent user is your Mathematics account), one is suspended in chat also. It is unclear why ...

You are not suspended in the chat rooms on Ask Ubuntu directly. Rather, your parent account, on Mathematics.SE, is suspended and as such because you are suspended on that site the suspension carries onto your SE account. That chat suspension for a year is not Moderator-done - it's system done. You received a chat suspension for disruptive behavior from a ...

Your comments (And OP's comments) have been flagged by users (as no longer needed I assume) and have been removed by moderators. It's just a typical process of cleaning up questions. Nothing weird has happened here. You should use chat-rooms for discussions. Comments are for asking more details and clarification. If it's getting into a long discussions you ...

Questions about Linux and things like sed, awk or grep are usually good candidates for the Unix & Linux site.

My understanding of the scope of Stack Overflow is limited, so I hope people will comment or edit to correct me. There is significant overlap in scope (on-topicness) between various Stack Exchange sites, including Stack Overflow and Ask Ubuntu, and this is not considered a problem. The same question may be on topic on Stack Overflow and on Ask Ubuntu. My ...

Audits are usually for identifying and suspend "robot reviewers" who click on "No action needed" or up/down vote for every post they encounter. If you observed the answers count, you're surely not a robot and were paying attention while reviewing. As of now the question on which that answer was posted has 2 more deleted answers (visible ...

I don't know exactly how review audits are generated, but it looks like the question is displayed as is. If that is always the case, then a deleted answer would most probably cause a wrong count in one or other of the small numbers on the right panels as you noticed here (other answers count or answer count) and reveal the auditness at a glance. I have ...

Yes, you're right, it makes no sense at all that trying to add a comment causes you to fail an audit when the post is high quality. You are also right that the system does not read your comment to see if it is reasonable (also, on a personal note, if commenting is going to cause me to fail an audit, can I please fail as soon as I click add a comment instead ...
