Because we need to move out of private beta to get awarded badges about participating in the private beta. I participated in the vi/vim private beta and got that badge the day it went into public beta.
From Why aren't bounties refunded if they are not awarded?
A bounty is not a guarantee. It's less risky in the new system, but it never has, nor ever will be, a guarantee for the answers you need. It's payment for a bid for an answer, not payment for actual answers themselves.
Remember that although you didn't get an actual answer, you did get 7 days on ...
What should I do to improve my identification question?
Here are some tips to help you improve your question:
Search on Google using terms like:
Part of the lyrics. Here you can specify the language (if you know it) of the song you're looking for.
Name of the artist(s).
Music cover image, describing it or if you have the image, add it too.
Music genre (...
It is not easy to understand what you are talking about, nor what you flagged (question, or answer). But I think you misused the custom flag feature.
The custom flag should be used when the reason you want to flag a post is not in the list.
Then you should write what was wrong in the post you want to flag. And the custom reason must be understandable ...
First of all, we hate fun, or to be exact: random, nonsensical, meaningless fun.
While I got the reference since I follow anime and manga in general, using a mod flag to... I don't know, getting attention?.. is certainly wasting the mod's time. I don't even know what the mods are expected to do to the post with such custom flag reason.
Moreover, Stack ...
You didn't just edit the question, you completely changed it. Please don't use the edit feature to completely rewrite a question. If you want to turn an off-topic question to an on-topic one, do small changes that keep similarities between the old (off-topic) question, and the new (on-topic) one.
You just need to start a whole new question.
In what circumstances would that be something that could help answer a question or solicit discussion? The only time I could see this being valid on MusicFans is if it were part of the lyrics of a song, but that hasn't been the way we've seen this being used in the past. That's a phrase that simply has little potential to be constructive on this (and ...
You keep editing your question but for now I still don't understand what is your question exactly. You found a list of pair of songs that have the same name. Then what?
You added the tag copyright, but there is no copyright about the title of a song, especially when the title is made of quite standard words.
Eventually, if you strongly suspect one pair one ...
You flagged "rude or abusive" this question
The question has been around for more than two years, and two very active members have participated in it, so you really think they would miss something rude or offensive? Flag was not necessary here when you could just comment Chris's post or mine if there was something you want to talk about.
Also, in october ...
Pretty much all bans are the result of doing something that is stupid or rude. It has been known to happen, for example, that reviewers will go through and either approve or disapprove everything regardless of merit. In general, review bans are for consistent or repeated behaviors.
So, if reviewers take the time to carefully go through each item in the ...
You got both a comment and a standard close reason indicating why. This SE does not have the same scope as Music SE so asking more involved questions about the history of notation does not make sense here.
It was already explained in a comment:
I’m voting to close this question because this question seems more
likely to generate lists of songs with the same title. The general
question of why songs receive the same title is fundamentally opinion
based, and can best be answered in the context of a specific song.
The fact that you keep adding songs to it kind ...
Stack Exchange sites may work a different way then other sites you may visit. From our tour:
Music Fans Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for music
historians, critics, and fans. It's built and run by you as part of
the Stack Exchange network of Q&A sites. With your help, we're working
together to build a library of detailed answers ...
In general, mods look at the reasons for the flag separately so if the wrong flag reason is used it will be declined especially if the spam flag or rude flag is thrown as they have extra weight. In this case the flag did not make sense so it was declined. We're not going to google search to try to figure out what the flag is supposed to mean.
This is going to be a duplicate answer from a previous post about similar content:
I would say no as there's not really a point on a music fan's site. It
dives way too much into actually playing and analyzing music then
listening to or consuming it.
This is on topic on Music SE for example this is a question in the same vein.
There are several aspects in your question that I will try to answer to.
Asking people for advice...
Asking people for advice is in general closed as too broad and opinion based. These questions tend to accumulate endless answers and it's hard to detect a correct answer.
... on personal work
In addition to be too broad and opinion based, the fact that it ...
I didn't downvote you. But I think some people may have downvote because the way you asked the question looked like you were asking us to do the whole job for you. You should first say what you have already tried so we won't do it again:
Have you tried to find them on google, or youtube?
Have you tried to contact the artist?
Have you checked the booklet in ...
It's just not a good fit here at Stack Exchange, because the concept of the site is to provide fact-based answers to questions. Questions that seek opinions and suggestions are generally discouraged, although there have been a few questions asked about bands/artists with similar musical style.
I don't think you can ask these questions here.
Remember what is not allowed (from the tour) :
Anything not directly related to music history or appreciation
Questions that are primarily opinion-based
If you want to ask us if we like your work, and how to improve yourself it would opinion based.
The system tries to limit someone who has a negative answer record as they are typically generating low quality answers that need attention. You only have 4 answers, but they are only on two questions which shows that you need a little more guidance on how answers work on the site. Here are some things to keep in mind when answering question.
Unless you ...
So to your core question I think there is room for some speaker and amp questions here, but I do not think any question. Specifically power matching I don't think would make sense on this SE.
Specifically speaker and amp repair and set up are cover in the context of practice on Music P&T SE, but that's a limited set of questions. I can see some home/...
Can you elaborate on "the normal subscribe option fails"? I just tried it and it seems to be working fine - hover over the tag, click "subscribe", get email confirmation, click the link in the email, profit.
The "manual subscription page" link you tried isn't a valid URL, so it 404s as expected.
You can also set up the filter (read: subscription) manually ...
This has been asked on the main Meta.
While I can't find why it got status-declined, I suspect it's because there's a lot of work involved to do right and it would make the idea of an accepted answer a lot more confusing. Kevin's answer on the linked post points somewhat in that direction as well.
The review aged away. See What does 'close invalidated' mean for more info.
In general we could use more participation in the queues. I don't mind cleaning them out every few weeks, but mod votes are binding and getting feedback from the community on these topics is vital.
Most possibly, yes, it's because of the migration.
This answer on Meta SE explains that
The accepted answer will now persist when it is migrated.
Now, that question was originally posted on Dec '16 before migrated. However, the OP didn't have an account on this site until Sep '17 (hover on the timestamp on "Member for"). Thus, when the question was ...
Migration is something that is generally discouraged for beta sites. This is not, as I understand it, an arbitrary rule, but rather one that has evolved from experience with many different betas.
By default, non-mods on beta sites can only migrate to meta of the same site. Sites that have graduated will get a list of pre-approved migration paths that cover ...
