We have too many [ceiling-fans] in our Stack

Yes it should! It was an obvious synonym, so I went ahead and merged them. You should only see ceiling-fan from now on. As I write this, we have 36 questions tagged with both ceiling and fans... ...

Should we break the [circuit]?

I don't think circuit is a very useful tag, as I can't think of any time you'd use it as the only tag on a post. I also don't think many folks would use it to find questions they might be interested ...

Rename 'refinsh' tag to refinish?

New close reason "Not enough information"

I have a propensity for allowing almost all questions on this SE but I have gone through a few and marked them closed - even if I had tried to provide an answer - because the author never responded to ...

Can we get the close vote threshold lowered to 3?

Not sure why this popped up into the "hot meta topics" today but it did, so I'll throw in my 3¢. My only concern in lowering the threshold to 3 votes is that there's a tendency to quickly ...

Can we get the close vote threshold lowered to 3?

What should be the status of questions about domestic appliances?

I don't believe everything can be so black and white. An example is this question I asked earlier today: The question itself suggests it's a hardware problem. The answer reveals some steps that the ...
