In regards to the identification tag being replaced with various other more specific tags I would like to suggest the following changes: part-identification Part identification questions get better answers if they... Provide detailed descriptions of the physical appearance of the part Include clear photos of the part of parts Include details about when ...

Should we implement this system for identification questions? Oh, yes! If a 'how-to-ask' tip is provided for identifcation questions, what tips should be provided? The second and third in the example picture seem to be good, pictures (or maybe even drawings, sketches) would be quite appreciated. I don't think the first one would help a lot, it is very ...

I've added fll to your question (although I fear that is "too localised") and a rough wiki entry based on their about page. I've also created a synonym first-lego-league which will point to it. Feel free to suggest edits for other suitable questions for more rep ;)

How does this sound? Identification questions get better answers if they... Provide detailed descriptions of the physical appearance of the part (color, theme, connections, etc...) Have picture and/or illustrations Include details about when and where they were found

We did allow flagging of user profiles. . . for about a week. It turns out people used the mechanism to seek revenge on users who "offended" them on the site.

One thing to keep in mind is that different parts of a user profile are have ...

Our icon is already slightly customised compared to most of the other "non-graduated" Stack Exchange sites. As we haven't fully graduated, we're using the standard "speech bubble" icon, however instead of having the site initials in it, we have a 1x1 brick (which is close to, but doesn't impinge on) LEGO's 2x2 brick favicon. Once we graduate, as per the ...

Good call. It seems like this is one of the relics of the early stages of the site. I've gone through all the questions (17) that use the [manipulation] and it seems to be that the [disassembly] tag is a better fit, so I have remapped the tag to the new one. Three of these questions use the word 'disassemble' in some form in their title and the tag wiki ...

It can indeed be done - however currently we're still officially in beta (hence the "Beta" after our site name in the header), and so don't qualify for a custom skin or the other changes that come with a fully graduated site. In terms of actions, one of the things that Stack Overflow is keen to do is reduce the impact of design-by-committee - which has ...

I'd recommend trying to focus your question on techniques for building that you're struggling with rather than "can someone build this for me" type questions - try to describe the problem you're having, examples of what you're trying to achieve, that sort of thing and you'll probably get a good answer, that helps everyone. So for example: I'm trying to ...
