Need a new category on close reasons

I am reluctant to use Unclear what you're asking because it's very clear what the OP asks: why is his tree dieing, how to prune a shrub, where to place a flower container, etc. I feel that having a ...

Request to modify 'modified' to show more information at a glance

You can't see it because you don't have the privilege level to see deleted posts (2k rep for beta sites like this one, 10k rep for graduated sites), but that user has two answers on that question. ...

Can I extend a bounty?

Unfortunately, there's no way to extend a bounty past the initial seven days. Placing a bounty on a question is analagous to buying advertising time on TV: you don't get a refund or extra air time if ...

Can/should we change the standard message posted when a late answer by a new user doesn't answer the question?

Should users be able to hide questions (to themselves only)?

I think it's a good idea and I hope that it will be implemented. There are a lot of questions that I don't know the answer to, or I'm not interested in the answers that might come up. Hiding these ...

How can I find open questions and answers that I haven't seen?

Should users be able to hide questions (to themselves only)?

On some sites such as stackoverflow itself where question numbers are overwhelming my default view is by tags. So you could create a view that shows only the tags you're interested in but that would ...
