This evening I have logged in and found some news on the site TeX.SE, for example on the explanations for closure of the questions. I also saw a new screen regarding the reopening of the questions previously marked with on hold.

  • @StefanKottwitz What is this problem that everyone is talking about between stackexchange and the community? I didn't understand anything, is there a short, simple and clear summary?

  • @HenriMenke Thank you, there was a difference about gender pronouns. In other words, who is for and who is against in this story?

    @AndréC Why don't you just click the footnotes on Wikipedia? Commented Dec 8, 2019 at 21:19
  • @HenriMenke I did, but all these links are really very slow to read and understand. Licensing stories are complicated just like gender stories.... That is why I am looking for a summary, if there is one, of course, in order to get a general idea of the problem, even if it means reading each link more precisely.

    @AndréC tl;dr: SE has a new CEO (Joel has left) and is focussing on SO and making money. Meta has become a nuisance for the company (which now has a roadmap they are not discussing) and the other communities are not important. Commented Dec 9, 2019 at 12:56

Previously, different sites within the network may have had their own code base, even if it were subtle. Changes like this seem to bring sites like ours in-line with the rest of the network. This promotes consistency across sites and is far better for site improvements.

Most changes to the network are posted here: Recent feature changes to Stack Exchange
