I'd like us to participate in the three-vote close experiment

I support moving to a three close vote (if SE will allow it). The close review que has been hovering from 100-200 questions that need to be reviewed for quite sometime (at least 6 months) which means ...

Circuit editor missing from Ask Question page?

Fixed now, thanks for the report! This was a bug I created over 10 years ago. Under specific timing conditions, it was possible for dependencies like the CircuitLab plugin to never start. Those timing ...

I'm not electrified by the existence of the blanket [electrical] and [electricity] tags, let's remove them, or at least blacklist them

These tags look like a candidate for intrinsic tags. Intrinsic tags are term[s] that can apply to all questions on the site [...] Hopefully, this meta post can also function as a formal request ...

I agree with you, but as I'm currently the only "active" mod (not active, really), I'll leave it open to collect some votes at least. And I hope that fresh new mod(s) will be willing to work on these ...

Where did the "simulate this circuit" link go?

Thank you for the bug report! There was one place I missed that had a hard-coded imgur URL which was preventing the message from appearing. I've shipped the fix, so new circuits will work fine. ...

Was the "Tour" removed?

The tour is now back in the top bar drop-down menu. See the earlier version of my answer below, where SE said this was an unintentional change which they were fixing. It has now been fixed (at least ...

What to do with all of these "STM32"-derived Tags?

I'm following the stm32 tag and the stm32f0 and the stm32f4 and I should probably follow the other STM32 tags as well. Sure there are some peripherals in the STM32F7 I haven't used, but a lot of the ...

Let's not over-engineer questions: blacklist [engineering]

Yes, this is another intrinsic tag which needs to be blocklisted. As with "electric", at least some of the time it is only used when a user is trying to tag the question as "electrical ...

What is with the ground tags?

Grounding and Earthing are probably used interchangeably on this site and I agree they could be merged, possibly after looking at some statistics which I don't know how to do. I think there's a big ...

Time to burninate [small-electronics]?

There isn't a need for this tag and I don't see a need for the tag, it doesn't follow the recommendation on tags because it's to 'meta'. If nobody else has a problem with removal, remove the tags ...

What to do with all of these "STM32"-derived Tags?

I'm not electrified by the existence of the blanket [electrical] and [electricity] tags, let's remove them, or at least blacklist them

In general, all adjective-only tags are bad: they change the meaning depending on which noun they are applied to. "Electrical" is obviously meaningless without a noun, or at best equivalent to "...

I don't want it. Math SE is essentially 90% homework, while EE SE would love if those questions went away completely.
