Community moderation is meant for dealing with posts, not with users. That is something that falls into the responsibility of us diamond moderators. We have a much better view of the history of a specific user, e.g. we can see deleted posts on a user profile. We also can message and suspend users, if necessary. This kind of moderator actions are mostly ...

We should have a consensus here. I do not think flagging every neuroscience related question cogsi.se is a great idea. There are specific areas that that suit cogsci.se better. I think we can migrate questions on following subjects: Behavioural studies Social neuroscience Psychology Neuropsychology Psychiatry We need not migrate neurophysiology, ...

From the help: Why and how are some answers deleted? Answers that do not fundamentally answer the question may be removed. This includes answers that are: commentary on the question or other answers asking another, different question “thanks!” or “me too!” responses exact duplicates of other answers barely more than a link to an external site not even a ...

I'm only posting this answer to give my opinion and relevant information I have found. Obviously I would also like other people's opinions as well. If a post attempts to answer the question, it should not be deleted or moved to a comment. Wrong answers or "poor quality" right answers should be dealt with by voting and commenting. See these posts on meta: ...

The "very low quality" flags are automatically dismissed if the post is edited. If you use those, these cases aren't a problem. Unnecessary flags are not really a problem on this site, the total volume is pretty low. I wouldn't worry about this at all.

You can raise a custom flag (flag for moderator attention). Migration paths aren't allowed with beta sites and really haven't had much attention in a long time across all of SE, as far as I know. https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/261200/401068 As of 2020, is it possible to set up migration paths to beta sites?

I placed that banner because you make 2 unsupported claims: ...it's worth pointing out that a cube with rounded corners and edges has larger surface area to volume ratio than a spherical dropping, making it more efficient for the reabsorbtion of moisture, which would be an evolutionary advantage in a place where water is in short supply.... And ...

As discussed in the comments, the resolution here is: Users who would like to challenge an answer that doesn't have references should downvote (this is particularly important) leave a comment explaining the concern about references flag as "in need of moderator intervention", with an explanation describing the lack of references and requesting a banner, (e....

If you think that the question may be suitable for some other SE site, then leave a comment and raise a moderator-attention flag suggesting a migration to the relevant site. Questions closed for reasons such as "too broad", "primarily opinion-based" or "unclear what you are asking" cannot be rescued unless they are suitably edited. When a relevant edit has ...

The overlap between the sites has been a topic of much debate. A recent meta post there has pointed out the consensus that every basic Neurobiology question is on-topic there (albeit it may fit Biology just as well, and arguably even better). More importantly, there is an active voting procedure ongoing there to change the name of the site and it looks ...

There is a bit of a difference between a typo in the code on SO and the example here on Biology. There are far too many different kinds of typos you can make in a program for the question to be useful to anyone else. There is a rather limited set of mistakes you can make that result in a gel without bands. An answer that explains possible reasons for the ...
