Yes, I think such questions should be on-topic.

I was thinking about your question this morning, and I saw that there were no replies. SE 3D Printing is quite a small site and there aren't an awful lot of regulars here - but there are just enough who can give great answers, but not everyone ventures here, into meta. I think that you should ask the question, it does seem on-topic. If it is well presented (...

I'd say that repair questions are more on-topic than construction. And if construction questions are okay, then repair questions should be too. An example format might be: How do I repair {X} I've tried {a[]} to fix {X}, but {b[]} occurred. What are some other common means of fixing {X}? Most of what is acceptable on SE is troubleshooting and I feel that ...

Getting a logo is part of getting a design, which is something that happens when a site graduates out of public beta. In short, not for a long time yet. While the site is in beta it will keep this theme that it currently has.

A user's account was deleted, for whatever reason. Therefore, any votes that they had cast in the past were automatically deleted, and any associated reputation changes were lost. A lot of other people, across many SE sites, also lost a lot of reputation on 25/05/2019 as the user, whose account was removed, was a frequent voter. See the answers to Change ...

Looking at some of the meta questions (1,2) and having asked myself the questions about proper tagging, is there way that we can add/edit tags in mass quantities? No. That's deliberate - tags are not supposed to be treated with mass operations, but individually. I'd be willing to go ahead and add various slicing engines, manufacturers, models, etc. if ...

no matter if we are close to graduation or not, i'd like to submit this one as my proposition it is: easy to recognize simple contains stylised '3' and 'D' characters refers to 'layers' aligned to SE logo can be color/gray/BW and still well recognized can be simplified (pixelate) to create favico (min size 8x8 pixels ;) first presented in this topic https:...

Sites get a customized design when they near graduation and that is a long way off. The task at hand is to gather up a collection of high quality questions so this site can get out of Private Beta. Focus on that now. When the site is nearing graduation, the designers will contact you for feedback on a potential design. Typically the design is created by the ...

That action didn't appear in the moderator activity history, so I'm not exactly sure how it was handled. Regardless, I agree and have deleted the comment.

I've added a comment to the answer asking whether or not they are affiliated with the site. If they are, it might still make a valid answer, but they should always disclose their affiliation. In principle, it can be acceptable to post about your own website or product so long as it makes a valid answer. The community here tends to vote down overt self-...

Spelling error, so rename is fine. Synonym is not necessary, tag may be deleted IMHO.

Most of our other tags have a similar naming schedule: aneta8, aneta6, aneta2. Once you fix that for 1, you need to do all. I do not think that will be necessary. Furthermore, you can find the tag by entering e.g. fol or ft, in both cases the suggested tags show folgertechft-5. Renaming is not recommended.

The tags support & support-structures are in fact referring to exactly the same thing! Furthermore, the meaning of support can be interpreted differently (i.e. helping out). I support renaming/merging the support labelled questions to support-structures. This implies that the support tag is removed and it could be reinstated at any time by new ...

I've made a synonym - apparently it needs some votes.

It is perfectly fine to post a duplicate question. You cannot be aware of all questions, and searching sometimes does not bring up a similar question! Hence, other people mark it as duplicate. Having duplicates is very good because some problems can be described differently, this increases the chance a question is found using the search functionality! ...

Yes it is possible to rename tags, but it would indeed be better to create a synonym as the extruder has had the Hermes name for a while. This means the Hermes tag will be replaced by the Hemera tag after adding/confirming the tag in the question. Update: Has been done, there where only 2 questions.

From Favorites improvements - search, categorize, personal tags, add note, favorite answer, you might find that this answer could help you tremendously. ᔕᖺᘎᕊ has written a very useful stack app. I have been using it for over a month now, and have found it invaluable, and tbh, I don't know how I functioned before installing it. The stack app is available ...

Unfortunately, I don't think that the Stack Exchange network is a good fit for the type of question you're asking. Your question was flagged as primarily opinion-based. Essentially, the question you're asking is a poll or survey which the design of the Stack Exchange sites don't properly support. Here are some more appropriate solutions for what you're ...

OlafM! One could say that 3D reconstruction is a bit sidetracked from typical 3D printing (apart from the 3D part :)), but then again, 3D reconstruction and printing also go hand in hand in some cases, such as with 3D scanners. Since 3D reconstruction can be a fairly math heavy topic, and I am unsure as to whether you will get any good answers here (but ...

I created the correct tag and synonym until we have someone that can fix this. I assumed that this would be an okay alternative since we do not have anyone, currently, that can fix these types of issues. If this is not a valid placeholder, please provide a comment/answer for a better alternative.
