Why does this site exist?

Just because one person quotes heavily doesn't mean the site has no value, and I don't believe that plot-related should be discouraged. I'm sure there are some examples of results that have ...

Why does this site exist?

You wouldn't be talking about me, would you? There are a few responses I'd have to your answer. Firstly, like Stack Overflow, there's nothing wrong with building up a repository of information on ...

Uncap the mini-headers in the sidebar

No, please don't do that! I was all for uncapping usernames, since they are prone to each and every user's personal spelling preferences and styles. But those general headings are not to be uncapped. ...

Would a spoiler tag be a good idea?

No, it wouldn't! First of all, while I don't have as narrow a view about tagging as SE seems to have and don't value the "meta tag" term they coined as much as other people, this tag would clearly be ...

Italics in titles?

Unfortunately, no. Markdown isn't supported in titles, and this is apparently not something Stack Exchange is willing to change; see Can we get markdown support in Question's `title` field? on ...

MOVIES & TV community name need to be CAPS in communities drop down list?

No. The all caps on the M&TV site makes sense, as the logo is in all caps. The navigation is not specific to the site you're on, it's uniform to the Stack Exchange network's overall styling. ...

I'd like to see the up- and down-votes of my posts

The Established user privilege is standardized throughout the stack exchange network. For whatever reason, SE believes that you should have 1000 rep on a site to see any Up/Down vote stats. It's not a ...

How to properly close recommendation questions?

Tom Cody's suggested wording for a new off-topic reason seems to do the trick. However, I'd recommend swapping out the "current events" reason: Close reason Closed Closed% of total ------------ --...

Can we have a spoiler button?

How to get an official blog for a site?

How to get an official blog for a site?

I'd say we wait until the elections are through and then finally go for it. It does not take much more than defining the scope, contributers and schedule and then bumping it up to the SE guys to set ...

what if we use seperate tag for low quality questions?

I am against such tags; they would not help, and be of any practical use. Your proposing new tags to help more experienced users fix up poor questions; but the tags don't actually facilitate this ...

I'm in danger of being blocked from asking questions, but I have asked no question?

There have previously been long-standing requests about showing all your deleted questions and answers on your profile (since you can view them anyway if you had a link to them) on the main meta, ...

Can we have a spoiler button?

Just to add a little bit more information, one of the big reasons we avoid using the spoiler markup as much as possible is using it makes the site a lot more difficult to use. Imagine if every other ...
