This post might be off-topic as I am not a candidate, but I would like to answer the last question publicly as some members of the community approached me about running for moderator. In what way do you feel that being a moderator will make you more effective as opposed to simply reaching 10k or 20k rep? That's exactly what I will do: reaching 20k ...

My vote is that they are on-topic, as long as the question still relates to the platform in some way (i.e. not if it is user support for passing a level in a game that just so happens to use ethereum-based tokens or something way off track like that).

So far so good. So, it shouldn't be an issue till now. As this is still in the infant stage, having a very open policy is very important. Let's gradually narrow the scope down on specific questions and topics once the conflicts(or conflicting posts/questions) start popping up on the site! So, let's be open to all the questions about DPP's now. It's very ...

Thanks for shareing your experience. I will start looking through the tags right now and list suggestions here. Unfortunately, there is no member with the merge-tags privilege yet. Issues identified so far: contracts and smartcontract should be synonyms smartcontract should be renamed to smart-contracts (discuss) statetree should be renamed to state-tree (...

I believe questions about DAPPs should be on topic always, unless there is another stackexchange site about it in the same way Ethereum talk is allowed in Bitcoin's stackexchange site but when this site goes live I suppose all Ethereum related questions will be migrated here. My reasoning for it is that talking about DAPPs here will increase this site's ...

Inspired by @arodriguezdonaire, what about: Whisper Whisper, to the shh communication protocol. :-)

it's @eth and nomination statement here. What keeps you coming back to the Ethereum Stack Exchange? Things may be "hot" now, and what will keep you coming back when things "cool" down? When this site launched on day 1, I joined because I thought this site should be a clean, reference site for the community: just like how stackoverflow has been very ...

It should be aligned with the help center / tour page to something like: Ethereum, the decentralized application platform and smart contract enabled blockchain. This post is a community wiki. Please edit it for minor fixes. For major changes post another answer.


5

Maybe something like: Ethereum Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Ethereum, the smart contract enabled blockchain network. Technical questions about Ethereum are welcomed here. With your help, we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about Ethereum.

Update: I'm leaving this answer for better understanding, but after Jeff's explanation, I think his suggestion is better. Original: I disagree about the last point. I'd turn it around: contracts should be a synonym of smart-contracts. "Contracts" might get be mistaken for the meatspace usage of the word, so smart-contracts is less ambiguous.


5

Is it possible Yes, but currently only by a stackexchange moderator. The minimum rep to suggest a tag synonym is 1250 rep, which noone has at the moment. Should the contracts and smartcontracts tags be merged? Yes.

Positive aspects: we generally have some really interesting questions showing up every week a healthy and fair competition among the ambitioned top contributors quality assurance works greatly (most of the time). Negative aspects, mainly software related: No room for discussions, either you move to the chat or you stop after 6 comments. It's strange ...

I just joined and posted few questions. I am satisfied with the responses so far. They are quick and the members tries to explain it as best as possible. I also find the Related sidebar quite helpful. I agree with Roland Koffler's comment Why do you think that Meta needs more activity? Ideally Meta should require no activity, because all things are ...

My name's Richard, and you can find my nomination statement here. Apologies if the below is a little long! What keeps you coming back to the Ethereum Stack Exchange? Things may be "hot" now, and what will keep you coming back when things "cool" down? I've been a member of the board since day one, and backed it during the Area51 phase. ...

My name is Bellaj badr I am providing short answers to give you an idea about my vision, if you need further clarifications,please comment below: What keeps you coming back to the Ethereum Stack Exchange? Things may be "hot" now, and what will keep you coming back when things "cool" down? I have three main reasons: I learn from ESE (Ethereum ...

I feel that this SE should be about the entire ecosystem, the platform and the community. That certainly includes topics on code, (behavioral) economics, governance (not necessarily politics), mathematics, cryptography, and definately dApps!


4

exceptions is better than errors, but neither is a good tag. The problem is that any software can have them and the tags will get stuck on everything from "human errors to errors in any kind of software in the space". I.e. both errors and exceptions only work well if there is another tag that further specifies them. Then it is better to make the tag more ...


4

Agree. Think we may need to add the support to this question.


4

I have reviewed how these tags are used in practise to see if they can be broken down logically: security could possibly be broken down into consensus, encryption / cryptography, cold-storage, security best practises for node operation, security best practises for client/wallet usage, security best practises for contract design, attacks offline is in most (...

Seems this could be a community wiki and combining the OP and Hudson's answer: Ethereum Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Ethereum, the smart contract enabled blockchain based consensus network. 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 ...

Quite a few of the listed tags in my question where already removed, but here are some comments on the remaining: development: Since Ethereum is Software, a lot of very different question topics could be tagged development. It's too broad and ambiguous. Suggestion: Replace with more specific tags such as contract-design, or specific software names e.g. geth-...

Agree with Roland Kofler' s answer. Negative aspects i consider are, Asking help for trading related things. Asking help for building or explaining something from bottom up. But i understands that this happened with any new technology, but this is too much complicated to explain in an answer. Other than it goes into a blog level of answer. Hope SE ...

I agree with this and you are correct that SUICIDE is deprecated.

Singular or Plural tags? we should point out if we want tags in singular or plural. here is a list of tags: Singular dapp ---> rename dapps blockchain ok wallet ---> rename wallets address ---> rename addresses network ok exchange ---> rename exchanges Plural smart-contracts ok transactions ok accounts ok clients ok economics ok nodes ok forks ok ...


3

I suggest: smart-contracts for general questions on smart contracts. contract-design, contract-debugging and contract-development for special issues while creating smart contracts. dapp for anything broader on the concept of decentralized apps. remove debugging and development in favour of the more specialized tags mentioned above.


3

Ask about ... Specific issues with Ethereum, the smart contract enabled blockchain based consensus network, including Swarm and Whisper protocols Specific issues with Solidity, Serpent programming languages and the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) Specific issues with smart contracts, decentralized applications and the web 3.0 Real problems or ...

Make it academic, serious like. "chat" is too casual, non-serious. ETHought Serious subject serious discussion (although all nonsense banter is welcome of course) :-))


3

What about { EthCetera }


3

Yes it is too generic, and all the technical aspects are well covered by the other tags. So I can see why this one should be buried.


3

There are a lot of great options, but I have to vote for How can a contract run itself at a later time?. For one, I think it is a short question that most Ethereum newbies would understand and be curious about. Moreover, while the top answer is long, it is an excellent response. Additionally, you can easily find answers to a lot of the other questions by ...
