I have two general issues with the question. Only one really relates to the site. The other one is more of an "industry" concern. Site Issues The problem with asking about general site safety is that there is always something more to think about in order to be safe. Everyone could add all of their thoughts. These could even be bullet points from ...

This comment on hazzey's answer got too long, so here it is on its own. TL;DR: Moderators should intervene less and less over time, but we shouldn't plan for it; it will happen on its own as the community grows. Yes: the goal of any Stack Exchange site is to be self-governing enough that moderators are exception handlers, picking up the cases that fall ...

I don't know if it is a NDQ or a "Low Quality Question". The problem is that there isn't enough information to determine what it is. With only two sentences, there just isn't enough information. I'm sure that there will be exceptions, but there is almost a minimum question length requirement.

A major issue that I have is the utterly naive low quality responses we give to newcomers as we boot them down the stairs, having satisfied ourselves that we have maintained the elite status of the site. [We haven't in many cases - just managed to eliminate the English as second or other language speakers and/or less literate]. I am reasonably certain that ...

I am not going to unilaterally reverse the decision of the five users who voted to reopen; however, users who want this question to remain open should put some serious thought into how they can improve the problem statement. Questions that inspire comments like this are not the sort of content that we want to invite or encourage, as a rule. I disagree ...

It seems like you are making a bigger issue out of this than is necessary. I don't know that moderators can cast "regular" votes, so any time they vote, it is "the vote". At this point it just means that we have active moderators. That is a good thing! Also, the traffic on the site is still very low. I can go through all of the recent activity a couple of ...

That question as it is currently written is inappropriate here. Perhaps after a number of back and forth iterations with the OP, the question can be turned into something interesting and useful. However that is not what we want on this site. People who ask questions here have a certain set of responsibilities. The question must be clear, relevant to the ...

When a question is put on hold, a banner is added to it explaining why it has been put on hold. In this case, the question is on hold because it is: "unclear what you're [the OP is] asking Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're ...

I was the first to vote to close this question, and I also downvoted it. Here is the body of the question at the time I saw it: The purpose of that project is to produce energy from a generator head that will produce 2,600 Watts and requires 5 hp (3,540 - 3,720 RPM). To make that generator head running, I am planning to have a DC motor that can run from a ...

Our assessment of users who have different but acceptable enough linguistic skills cause us to treat some of them as if they were naive. (I'll use the naive question / naive user concepts interchangeably as seems appropriate). An examination of the material available to date for the "LASER interferometer" case shows that this is what has happened in ...
