I'm in support: a lot of visitors to TeX.SX don't speak English very well, and this makes the post's intent clearer; I also don't see a downside. One thing which influenced my decision was that if one searches for the phrase "for idiots", the only results are "BibLaTeX for Idiots" and several links to it. If there were several such posts, perhaps the ...

As suggested by Ulrike I put my name on the list. I have been a member of dante for about 10 years and of tex.sx for 2 years. At the moment my main tags are the KOMA-Script ones. While I am answering a question I also use this example to test the beta version of KOMA-Script. I am also active in some German forums like TeXwelt.

I'm honoured to have been hwyaden-nominated by Paulo. I am reluctant to take advantage of this since I have enjoyed the benefit of a subscription this year and think that others should have their turns. However, since barbara has urged me to put my name forward despite this, as there are more spots available than there are nominees. (Though I'm not sure this ...

Yo', Egreg and Johannes B insisted to nominate myself. I am active on TeX.sx for five years, originally to find some help for my first LaTeX package biblatex-iso690, I was hooked since then. I happened to create some packages which are included on CTAN, most notably tex4ebook for TeX to ebook conversion and odsfile, LuaLaTeX package for reading OpenDocument ...

I propose my self. I'm LaTeX user since my degree project, long time ago, and I've been actively participating in this site and some other latex-related-lists like Cervantex, comp.text.tex, miktex-users, ... Although I think that it is not my better answer, my most voted answer until now is How to prevent pgfplots from using the 10^n notation for axis ticks ...

Yes, we're still benefiting from our TUG membership. Let's renew!


24

As suggested by cfr and encouraged by Christian Hupfer and Paulo Cereda I put my name on the list. First time I use LaTeX about 25 years ago when wrote an article for IEE conference. After than I use it on regular basis for writing articles, presentation, examines, expertise memos and text books. Recently I use TikZ with big joy in (re)drawing all my ...

Alenanno This bloke. ^^

I will nominate myself for a TUG membership. I am a member of GUST: http://www.gust.org.pl/ and this helps me to understand, how restricted is my TeX knowledge, but in the same time helps to push boundaries. I would like to have access to current TUG articles, but TUG membership is rather expensive for me. Certainly, I can wait, but especially "TeX friends"...


21

I'd like to nominate cfr, to ask her to help us to create a tikzducks package.

There is no automated way of doing this from your end. However, you can refine your search on the main/meta site to identify posts which have the now-defunct URL using the search query url:"river-valley.tv". This reveals only 24 posts: My suggestion would be to visit each post sequentially over the next couple of days (say 5 posts a day) and you'll be done ...

Herr Professor Paulinho van Duck would like to be a TUG member! Since he lives at my home at the moment, he asked me to write down my name here. I accept the membership on his behalf! Special thanks to Paulo Cereda, Ulrike Fischer, Christian Hupfer, yo' and Jan for their kindness!

The unannounced change should be reverted as soon as possible. I would even remove boldface from the current tab name, normally active, because the rule under the tab name is sufficient. Boldface is a device to be used very sparingly, because it catches attention: with the current setup, tags are more prominent than question titles.


16

In the very least, include a reference to the "for Dummies" series to clarify its usage. Perhaps even including an image to highlight it visually... in the spirit of being original, I mocked this up from a German version: Regardless, I support the change. I think Biblatex for beginners sounds more generic, as there's probably little difference between ...


16

Generally, I don't like nominating myself for anything, but TUG membership is an exception. Tex.sx says that over 1 million of people viewed my helpful posts. My access to TUGboat should enlarge this number. And last but not least: they had ducks in TUGboat last year!


15

5 years of display and 200 votes are not good enough evidence that it is not offensive because people probably identify this as a self-deprecation of the OP? And from the homepage of the user, I'm sure he is aware of what idiot means. Finally, notice that all the edits were concerned about how to spell biblatex instead of the idiots parts which was (and ...

Honestly the SE sites have generally very good designs and very nice choices in regards to how things appear, but the tag change is really a punch in the eye. The tags now are as black as the text, making them virtually indistinguishable from the text at a first sight. I'll just say this: Using bold for everything is like using the highlighter pen for the ...


15

I'd like to nominate Gustavo Mezzetti. Since he gave us the wonderful package \halloweenmath, he deserves a TUG membership!

Steven B. Segletes ^^ this bloke. :)


15

I'd like to nominate Sašo Živanović who has created the wonderful forest package, which now dominates all tree related answers.


14

I think the main site looks a little bit silly now. In the following screenshot, the things encircled in red need to be bold as well. The content of the blue circle needs to be super-mega-bold to fit again. Just reverting the bold tags to normal would be easier and better, though.


14

The last day of the election and only 7 nominees for 8 positions? That is kind of sad, so I will add myself to the nominees, even if I am much less qualified than the others -- no TeX development or something, just a user. I am an enthusiastic LaTeX user since the beginning of my studies in 2007, and after years of reading Q&As on this site, I actively ...

Indeed the CSS tag for the kbd style is given by kbd { white-space: nowrap; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% rgb(238, 238, 238); border-style: solid; border-color: rgb(204, 204, 204) rgb(170, 170, 170) rgb(136, 136, 136) rgb(187, 187, 187); padding: 2px 4px; border-width: 1px 3px 3px 1px; } Tweaking it a ...

We tracked down the bug. The Tex community has a few special classes for text formatting and those happened to conflict with a recent mixin that was added to a global file. The change was unintentional and an update is rolling out soon. Thanks for the catch and your patience.


12

There seems to be a bit of a trend to have a tag named after "major" environments or macros/fonts/symbols/etc., which I suppose makes sense if the thing is complicated or subtle, or at least prone to error. It actually seems that the concept of a "vector" as realized in TeX is such a thing: there are questions about vectors written as column vectors (...

A fix for this logo issue has been pushed, and should be active at the next build of the blog network.

What changed is that we started using imgur thumbnails by default in chat; so when you link to http://i.stack.imgur.com/iSQFI.png, we display http://i.stack.imgur.com/iSQFIm.png, but link to the original: <a rel="nofollow" href="//i.stack.imgur.com/DmZBd.png"> <img src="//i.stack.imgur.com/DmZBdm.png" class="user-image" alt="user image"> <...

I think that index should be made a synonym of indexing, and index-package should be created for the package, as barbara suggests. This is similar to the situation with citing and cite-package.


11

I think that this name change is unfortunate and should be changed again. It is very common for (especially new) users to use latex-project for any question related to any part of the tex system, whether a problem with a specific package or with an editor or general latex syntax. Almost invariably someone then does a tag edit to remove the tag. On this ...

As my proposal has so far gained a score of +9, I've changed/added the tag wiki excerpts for font-encodings and the new input-encodings: {input-encodings} is about the various input code pages like latin1 or utf-8 ({unicode}) which interprete the sequence of numbers underlying text files and map each number to a certain glyph (character). A popular ...
