Notes: This nominee would be a good choice because they have shown themselves to be a good moderator over at Puzzling, and has shown themselves to be active in helping with the moderation on this site. They are also active on main Meta, which is always good in a mod :) Emrakul is also quite familiar with the subject of this site, as shown by their position ...

Notes: This nominee would be a good choice because he has shown a great interest in the quality of the site, and has taken part in a great many things to help this site grow. Rand also referred many, many people to the Area 51 proposal, without which the site would most likely have not launched in the first place. Additionally, he is currently a moderator ...

This can be increased, but only up to a maximum of 35 characters. This means zen-and-the-art-of-motorcycle-maintenance is right out. I increased the allowed length to 32, thus allowing zen-and-art-of-motorcycle-maint, which should be a little bit easier to recognize. This sort of compromise is likely to be common... Thus, whenever possible, try to work the ...

Sounds like a good time for a tag synonym. I'd recommend making the nineteen-eighty-four tag and then getting the CMs to make 1984 a synonym. That way, if anyone tries to use just "1984", it will still get the appropriate tag but if the title is officially spelled out, that should be the primary tag.

http://stackexchange.com/users/flair/5129611.png?theme=dark Notes: The nominee has done good work helping the site grow, e.g. this. They clearly aren't in this for the glory but for Greater Good, as shown by nominating 3 other people ahead of self. I am Mith, and I accept this nomination. Here is some info that I think will be relevant: Me I live in ...

Notes: I have been a temp mod on two sites: movies and the previous iteration of literature. I work well with other moderators, discussing issues on the site and determining the correct actions to move forward. I have a vested interest in seeing the new literature site succeed and would like to help it do so.

My proposal is that we remove all three paragraphs of apologies and hedging quoted in the question, and replace them with the following: We interpet ‘literature’ in a broad sense, including written, spoken and sung works, in all genres, languages and forms: poetry, plays, stories, novels, lyrics, comic books, essays, belles-lettres, and so on. I’ve tried ...


10

Sure. This way we avoid all the arguments about 'q' and the tag covers a larger number of questions. Also, anyone who's an expert in those questions will probably also be knowledgeable about the other questions that would be covered by this proposed tag.

I added the blacklist to all sites back in 2015. Literature didn't exist then, so it didn't get the blacklist. We should probably get in the habit of adding it during site creation, but for now I've just added it to all sites created in the interim.

Done. Thanks @Robert!

DECLINED Notes: This nominee would be a good choice because she is always willing to help people and listen to their issues in an unbiased and respectful manner. Steeler has known love of Literature, even if she is not the highest in reputation, but I feel her "soft skills" in knowning to handle clashing personalities more than make up for that. Posting @...

I'm going to take the George R R Martin approach here: Let's kill the characters. character wouldn't work as the sole tag on a question, which means it's probably a meta tag and therefore undesirable according to SE central policy. The purpose of tags is supposed to be for experts in a given subject to find questions to answer on that subject, but there ...

Yes! Metre (or "meter" if we must use American English) refers to the rhythmic structure of verse, whereas scansion refers to determining the metre. However, not all questions about metre are about how to determine the metre. Unless we really need to distinguish between questions about scansion on the one hand and other questions about metre on the other, I ...

status-completed - I've renamed it to the-hitchhikers-guide-to-the-galaxy, in accordance with Tag name conventions: to the or not to the?.

DECLINED Notes: This nominee would be a good choice because he has shown himself to be interested in the health of the site, as evidenced by his extensive Meta participation, and has good knowledge of the subject matter, as shown by his main site participation. In addition, he also moderates Writers.se, a similar site.

Done; there seems to be a pretty strong sentiment in favor of switching them around, so... I switched them. scansion will now remap to meter. (Tags are supposed to be in American English, but I took the liberty of adding metre as a synonym of meter, for all you Brits out there.) status-completed

The tag untagged appears automatically when all of a question's tags are removed. When editing a question, it's impossible to remove all the tags, so the only way a question can get down to 0 tags is if its sole tag is removed by the system. This happens because there is an automatic job that removes tags that are used on a single question and that are 6 ...

Per Stack Exchange policy, the rules for tag burniation are: Does it describe the contents of the questions to which it is applied? and is it unambiguous? Basically, we shouldn't have "Meta tags." This tag only unambiguously describes the content if the question is about children's literature as a genre, and if we consider children's literature a real genre....

profile for fi12 on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites http://stackexchange.com/users/flair/7534499.png I'm throwing my hat in the ring here, because I love literature and I'd consider myself to be a pretty active member of this site. I'm: fourth third by meta participation eighth by main site rep, and I've contributed ...

The poems tag has been merged into poetry, which is now the only one remaining of the two. As Robert noted in comments, synonymisation isn't an issue because typing poe into the tag box will lead users to poetry automatically anyway. For discussion of the value of this tag, see Is [poetry] too broad / how should we use the tag? and my own more recent A ...

Merging the tags would be much more appropriate than making them synonyms. As already mentioned in comments, this isn't what synonyms are for. Merging tags is a moderator function, wait until we get them and then issue a gentle reminder.

DECLINED Notes: This nominee would be a good choice because they have proven themselves to be a good user, with a good grasp of the site's workings. Admittedly, they aren't that active in Meta, but that can always change ;) They are fairly active on the main site, with over 1100 rep. They were the 9th user to join the site, so pretty early. I believe that ...
