The best approach would be to flag it for moderator attention, asking them to migrate it to the site of your choice. Another thing you might consider is starting a bounty on your question to get it more attention. It is considered bad form to ask the same question on multiple Stack Exchange sites at once (and will usually get most, if not all, of the ...

First of all, there are two broad categories of suspension: site suspension and chat suspension. I will address each of the separately. Chat suspension This is a suspension that is applied to your chat user. It doesn't block you from using any SE site and, in fact, it isn't even linked to any SE site. The SE chat system is shared across all sites in the ...

Besides what Oli said, the solution is to edit posts that use version tags incorrectly, adding other tags, and removing the version tags unless the question appears version-specific. Many people will probably imitate the use of tags they see on the site. If we're good enough at editing questions to fix wrong use of version tags, we'll probably have fewer ...

Public spankings! Ahem, maybe not. I don't think there's a lot we can do. They can be valuable tags to keep around but there's currently no feature which allows us to make sure somebody posts another tag. The best we can do is improve the short wiki text so that the description they see in the tag suggestion box tells them they shouldn't be using it on its ...

Ubuntu Gnome Remix will be off-topic forever. The "new" project, Ubuntu GNOME, will be allowed and on-topic.

You haven't given an example, so I'm not sure which acronyms and abbreviations you've seen that could cause problems. As Fabby pointed out, many tech-related things are better known by their acronyms than their full names, and typing out the whole thing would be both cumbersome and obfuscatory. On the other hand, when editing posts (though I wouldn't always ...

One of the Universal Serial Bus ports on my Universal Serial Bus hub is not recognised. Is this due to the Peripheral Component Interconnect or the Central Processing Unit or the Universal Extensible Firmware on my computer. (IOW: banning acronyms is not going to work IYKWIMAITYD ) ;-)

Broad general sound issues Q&A? Don't see it as a good thing. Normally attempts for that just result in big fails that are not maintained or do not reflect current status of the situation when evaluated after some time. If you are simply going to describe a bug then just leave it and point the question you see relevant to its launchpad page. If its a ...

You weren't suspended, you just don't have enough reputation to review posts. If you visit askubuntu.com/review you will see: There was a recent change, raising the rep requirement to review from 125 to 500; hence the reason you could review yesterday and not today. For more information on the change see Propose a privilege to sit in the 500 reputation mark ...

I'm going to say no to this. We really can't keep listing a distribution EVERY single time. There are so many unsupported distros that it'll be impossible to scale every time someone decides they're right. The on-topic section explicitly mentions only distros listed on this page. That should be clear enough it's not supported. If people have a problem ...
