Can you add “identify-this-video “?

No, we should not. Some sites accept "identify this" questions, but I don't see how that would even be remotely within the scope of this site. This site isn't about videos; it's about web ...

Please update the "recommendation" custom off-topic reason to include guidance to Software Recs

I had added this as a close reason. I am waiting for another moderator to approve the change before it goes live.

Can't good editors have their edits automatically approved even though they don't have enough reputation?

“Historic value” questions

Stack Exchange has the concept of a "Historical Lock", where a question and its answers are locked from edits or votes (and obviously no new answers can be added). What is a historical lock, and what ...

Tag [bandcamp] should exist. Also, there should be less reputation needed to create tags

We don't create tags ahead of time. There needs to be a question that needs the tag before the tag can be created. I only see one question that seems to be about Bandcamp on the whole site, and it's ...

What flag should be used for customer service questions?

Since you're still just flagging, and not actually voting to close, I suggest using the "blatantly off-topic" flag. Once you get the privilege to vote to close, you should use a custom reason.

Add pointer to softwarerecs.stackexchange.com in our Help's 'on-topic' section?

As Software Recommendations is still alive one year after question was posted I think that a link to it will be helpful to both sites. This will be helpful to that site as it could get more traffic ...

Make all recommendation questions out of scope and off topic, regardless of research

I agree with making recommendations off-topic here, because Software Recommendations is now doing great (as many questions per day as webapps) See Software Recommendations's webapp recommendations ...

Google-Fu chat room frozen

You just need to have at least two different users talking in a room and to not leave a room empty (empty based on messages, not users logged in) for two weeks in order to keep it alive. It is a ...

Don't remove tags that are only used once in the last 6 months

On Ask Patents they are using tags in a way that I think that doesn't apply to Web Applications. I'm not sure about the arguments on Arqade. According to Jeff Attwood's answer to Should We Zap The ...

The submit buttons need a focus indication

This appears to have been done with the redesign a couple of years ago. The text of the button switches from dark to white when the button gets focus.

Google-Fu chat room frozen

It is ludicrous that Google-Fu is subject to being frozen. There is advice all over the place for some matters to "take it to chat" and yet 93,441 users here may not be able to. At the very least ...
