comment Show user group membership in user info box
I would use such a logo. But how to avoid (if you want avoid it) that it is used for arbitrary advertisement? And how to handle the case of multiple membership? I e.g. would then want TUG, Dante and Latex team.

@user121799 no you are not stating facts, but opinions - opinions I don't agree with.

@user121799 it may not be your intention to insult anyone but you should be aware that claiming that "this user is a danger for every honest user on this site" and accusing someone that he "abused his powers" would count as insults in my part of the world.

comment To which extent can I use my own codes after I quit?
Why do you put so much weight on the email address? I never get mails from SE.

@marmot If I had a massive problem with a moderator, I would contact one of the others and failing this the network staff, but I never came near the need to do this. I'm member here since nearly 9 years and in the latex team since 10 month. Be aware that I didn't meant to say that the moderators here are judges. The main task of a moderator is not to judge but to restore/keep the peace. Separating angry, fighting people and sending them home or out of the room to cool down is not judging - and it is done everyday by parents, security staff, police, teachers.

comment New update or a bug in the main & meta page display of a question's activity information
I like the new layout, imho that is the right place for this info. Being able to see directly that a question is old, is imho quite a help.

@JosephWright On reelection: I don't think that it is odd. No sensible firm "reelects" a large part of its staff regularly. That only produces costs for training and administration and organizing the election and risks to push good, experienced people out of their team. And in public service too election doesn't necessarly implies reelection. We in Germany have quite a number of posts where people are elected once "for life", e.g. judges and school leaders.

@Raaja "Who started it" is one of the most complicated question for every war or fight between humans. Simply imagine that one person says something neutral, a second (mis)understands it as unfriendly and gives an aggressive comment and the first shouts back. Who of both started the fight?

comment Is it fair to “unaccept” an already accepted answer?
it depends on your question. if your question was flawed and e.g. didn't specify an important requirement it would be quite unfair to add this requirement in an after-thought and so nullify a valid answer. Then as CarLaTeX write better ask a new question. If the answer is simply faulty you can naturally unaccept it.

comment Fun questions (contests/social events) which require coding: Main or Meta?
@CarLaTeX you are also asking "Also, what are some good guidelines for how to set up such questions?".

comment How to deal with overleaf incompatibilities?
I always request log-files, and I often get back "what is this" or "I don't have one". Lately one customer didn't find the log, because windows showed "txt-file" and I had to force him to open every single file in the folder, and a special system on the mac puts the log in a hidden folder and there I had to hunt down in the docu the setting to unhide it.

comment How to deal with overleaf incompatibilities?
User always "forget" to mention vital information because they don't know or didn't really try to consider what could matter. They don't say that they actually use bidi, or lyx, or xelatex, or texlive 2013... It is part of the support job to check for such missing parts. I e.g. always request a log file.
