As Strunk & White is criticized by linguists (because they regard it as prescriptivist and outdated and occasionally incorrect), would it be possible to rename this badge? To me, this badge feels a bit like a prize awarded that carries the name of (say) a famous politician that has fallen into disrepute ;-)

What about "Assistant Editor"?

  • That would apply across the SE network: you'd need to ask on the main meta site.

    @user14996: Please don't double post things across SO/SE sites. Questions can be migrated to another site by a moderator. I will close this now here so that the same question isn't around twice. Commented Jun 14, 2012 at 8:28
  • @MartinScharrer Thank you for the information on policy. I thought double-posting (and then linking, like I've done) was what was expected of me. How can one ask a moderator to migrate a question? Would it be possible to rename "closed as off-topic" by "closed due to duplicate on main/other meta/site"? If that's not possible, that might be another candidate for a main meta ... Commented Jun 14, 2012 at 8:46

    You can use the 'flag' link below any post to notify moderators. And no, I can't rename it. I can only migrate it, but it's already there so I see no reason to create a duplicate. Feel free to simply delete this question here. Commented Jun 14, 2012 at 12:52

    @MartinScharrer Okay, in this particular case I'll keep the question, because this comment thread is useful (for a newbie like me). If you'd say that this information is clearly and accessibly available elsewhere, I'll be happy to delete everything, though. Commented Jun 14, 2012 at 17:46
  • @Martin: there should be no reason why someone can't bring up a topic that pertains to all sites on an individual site. I don't know that this is particularly useful or interesting to Tex.SE users, but in the future please either let the discussion fall out locally (as it may) or close because it isn't relevant here (if it isn't) - plenty of things that nominally apply network-wide aren't actually all that important outside of individual sites, so establishing consensus locally can help to understand the need (or lack thereof).
