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 ...

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

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.

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.

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