I asked https://webapps.stackexchange.com/q/170373/18147. The answer seems to be no, it's not possible. One moderator closed the question with the reason:

I closed this question because it's a feature request that should be addressed to the web app developer.Rubén Apr 29 at 7:00

Should questions asking about the existence of a feature that turns out not to exist be systemically closed or left open?


Other examples of questions asking about the existence of a feature that seems not to exist. I see that typically the questions are left open (I didn't select them based on whether they were still open):

Asking about the existence of a feature on a website that turns out not to exist shouldn't be a reason to close the question. Rationale:

  1. The OP doesn't know ahead of time if the feature exists (since they are asking the question).
  2. The feature may be introduced later.
  3. The feature may not be built-in but workarounds may exist.

  • @Rubén I listed three arguments on why asking about the existence of a feature on a website that turns out not to exist shouldn't be a reason to close the question. How would an argument improve that answer? May 9, 2023 at 15:21
  • Argument maps help to have better discussions and avoid going in circles and other usual problems when there are reasons and objections for something. They are recommended when discussing wicked problems. Later I will add more about this. May 9, 2023 at 17:12
