Do we wish to be part of the 1-rep-voting test?

No. Reason: This SE already gets a lot of observable up/down voting that is unrelated to the actual quality of an answer (that is, how good the actual cooking information is), but is instead based on ...

What defines "opinion-based"?

This is something that's been discussed a lot, and which various members of the community have differing strongly held views on. I do think that despite its age, Good Subjective, Bad Subjective is a ...

Did I do what Cascabel advised me to (maybe I didn't understand correctly what did she advise me to do)?

In a very literal and narrow sense I would say that yes, with the current version of your question on the main page (created after you asked this Meta question and Cascabel answered) you have met our ...

Did I do what Cascabel advised me to (maybe I didn't understand correctly what did she advise me to do)?

No, you did not do what you were asked to do. You have edited your question more than once, and made it much shorter but probably no more answerable, certainly no more likely to produce an answer that ...

Are these questions with contradictory answers duplicates?

Great question for Meta; the FAQ you posted tries to avoid even more wordiness, so it apparently was confusing in this case. We assume that the point of reading answers to questions on our site (no ...

Do we want to allow new questions about vinegar mold, or to treat them as duplicates?

It depends on whether any older questions have a sufficiently general answer that contains a method for troubleshooting mold in vinegar culture regardless of specific details. If one of them does, ...

tag synonym privilege doesn't make sense

I think that your suggestion certainly has merit. The rep bar seems too high, and the tag-specific part could possibly be rethought. It still isn't something entirely trivial, so I thing that there ...

Should we get rid of [breakfast]?

For what it's worth, tags aren't really about adding specificity. The question itself should provide all the specifics, and if someone has to look to the tags to understand, something has gone wrong. ...

Please add "Not about cooking and eating" to close reasons

There hasn't ever been one. I see where you're coming from, and I agree that it would be nice having it. But seeing how little trouble it causes and how difficult it would be to have it otherwise, I ...

Please add "Not about cooking and eating" to close reasons

What defines "opinion-based"?

Do we need both the "cooking-safety" and "ktichen safety" tags?
