I agree, and propose this wording that incorporates suggestions from @whuber:
Questions that relate to the business of vendors and product teams,
such as licensing, pricing, release dates, submission of bug reports
and enhancement requests, etc, are off-topic here and should be
directed instead to the official software support teams.
I have not ...
I am not sure where you took your screenshot from but to see the Newest questions on our Main site I use https://gis.stackexchange.com/questions?sort=newest:
Finding questions with the newest answers is harder, but for that I use https://gis.stackexchange.com/search?tab=newest&q=is%3aanswer:
Getting the latter is harder than what I would like so I made ...
The new feature is a consequence of SE responsive design efforts. See Editor improvements for images and links from Meta Stack Exchange:
Adding a link and image in your post is no longer done via pop up dialog. Instead the controls show up inline with the editor. This is sleeker and prepares the way for us to make our desktop theme work across all devices ...
I think the mix of GIS and Geographic Information Systems is about right.
The URL is good in short form - I certainly wouldn't want it to be spelled out in full. My vote here is for gis.stackexchange.com over geographicinformationsystems.stackexchange.com
The site name in full as Geographic Information Systems gives a lot more information that just GIS -...
So this is the comparison you are talking about:
This is first instance in 22,000 questions on GIS Stack Exchange where this has been identified.
I believe the tabs could be more prominent - there are users using css changes - on their local browsers to enhance their own GIS-SE experience.
While CSS can be used by people to enhance their own GIS-SE experience, I think requests such as this one make a lot of sense to try and improve the user experience of anyone who would prefer to use our site without resort to configuration or customisation.
Feature requests like this should probably be made on Meta.SE as we don't have the ability to change how SE works here at GIS SE.
That said, you should have a few options already to see the before/after history during a Suggested Edit review. Have a look at this Suggested Edit I recently reviewed. The before is on the left, the after (the edit you are ...
The Close option of Migrate is found under:
Close > Off Topic Because... > This question belongs on another site in the Stack Exchange network
The Migrate close option requires 3000 reputation, and you do not get the option to specify your own Migrate destination - you can only select from set options, the only one on GIS.SE appears to be Meta GIS.SE.
To achieve a change such as this the place to ask would be Meta Stack Exchange because it is not something that can be customized on a per-site basis.
That question has already been asked there as:
Include both the chat and blog links permanently in the header
What I think prevents the Chat button being made more prominent is that chat is designed for ...
It's still possible, but hidden.
@JoeFriend's answer to Can't upload image from URL anymore:
We no longer have an explicit entry point for this, but you can paste an image link when the uploader UX is showing.
Though at current writing, it might be still buggy for Edge browser.
This is trivial to accomplish with CSS. Using Stylish (see this answer for more info), this style works for me:
float: right !important;
Update: There is also now a userstyles.org style incorporating this request. See: User style for commonly-requested site usability enhancements
From what I can tell, we as moderators have access to relatively few site configuration options and none in the vicinity of what you are seeking.
Consequently, we would need involvement of the SE developers to implement anything like this.
I would want to know of another SE site that works the way you describe before I could become interested in trying ...
