If you earn 125 reputation the limit will be removed. The reason for this limit is to reduce spam questions, there is no chance it will be removed permanently. It is not disrespecting anyone, in fact it is improving the quality of the content on the site. If you really want to take this further you need to post on meta.stackexchange.com but it won't go ...

I'm a room owner of SOCVR and a regular in Charcoal-HQ and those rooms are involved in fighting spam posts across the SE network. Thank you for noticing these spam posts and offering ideas to put a stop to them. That specific spam is rather well known and persistent. Only on Ask Ubuntu over 2000 posts have been noticed and flagged. Even today 7 of such ...

I reckon this happens sometimes while adding a link using the "insert hyperlink" tool (either by clicking the button or pressing Ctrl+L) instead of using Markdown. The input box contains https:// (which is selected) by default (and I believe it used to have http:// by default previously). So usually while pasting the link, it overwrites the https:// with ...

I don't think the specific change proposed here would be an improvement, but this is a good question. In the hypothetical situation you described--which is a perfectly plausible situation, considering that many low-rep users do eventually make numerous good suggested edits--I will assume for the sake of simplicity that no corner cases apply, such as edits ...

This is not answering the question for canned answers because I don’t see a valid usecase for them. Unlike a comment, an answer is as unique as a question, and if it’s not unique then it’s a duplicate. this answer which is nothing more than an extended-length, nicely-formatted comment As you agree this is actually not an answer, we don’t need that for ...

No. Not unless version 2 is somehow completely different and someone can be an expert in WSL2 and not in WSL. The version can be mentioned in the body, that is helpful, but having a different tag for every version of a tool that comes out will just complicate things. So I'd say we really don't need separate tags for separate versions of WSL.

Until such time as you gain 125 reputation from the site (and therefore have your New User Limits removed here on Ask Ubuntu) you cannot post more than 1 question every 40 minutes on the site and its meta site (and this will apply anywhere across the StackExchange network where you do not have the requisite 125 rep on those specific sites). This is inbuilt ...

Nit-pick: this isn't actually a boolean operator... I've added a separate section at the end detailing who can search deleted posts, and how they may do so: Deleted Posts (requires $Privilege-ModerationTools reputation) When you earn the Access to Moderator Tools privilege, you may search your own deleted posts by using the deleted: operator. ...

With the recent redesign of post notices w.e.f. Dec 5, 2019, the banner has been reduced to just one and that too appears on the top eliminating all the confusions which were present before. Unlike then, now users with less than 3000 reputations aren't shown the close voters. For them the banner looks like: But for users with 3000 reputation points or more ...

The problem seems to be caused by copying a link with a preceding space into the Insert Hyperlink dialog. The software adds http:// in front of it and a broken link starting with http://%20https:// is born. See What causes “http://%20https://” links to be made? on Meta.SE for details.

I have a solution for Firefox users that uses userContent.css and is probably adaptable to other browser. There's a greasemonkey script in the same place too. I added the code to a gist. The solution comprises using CSS to get the title attribute from the date span tag, and display it on the page. The span title uses what I think is RFC 3339 format, very ...
