TRE notes and tips Don't edit closed questions! (This is covered with my query, but just in case) The rationale, if you ask, is an SE slogan saying "$\color{red}{\mathcal{don't~polish~turds}}$". Enough said I guess. Don't edit questions that you voted to close/flagged for closure. For the same reason I stated above. Please make substantial edits. Think of ...

Well, there are various things and taking care of as many of them as possible would be beneficial. Adding tags to one-taggers - there's lots of them. About 150 only in inorganic chemistry. Taking care of functional groups, nuclear and other (re)tagging stuff. Improving titles - removing mathjax, buzzwords for starters, but also making them as appropriate ...

There once was a too trivial edit rejection reason. That has, however, since been removed, meaning that SE staff considers no edit too trivial (if the other reject reasons are not met). On the other hand I will agree with you that bad old questions don’t need to be bumped unnecessarily — ‘don’t polish turds’. Then again, the only way to actually check that ...

Generally speaking I would agree with you, edits to old posts should definitely be substantive to avoid unnecessary bumping. However in this case it was already on the front page so the edit didn't really bump it much. Of course this information isn't reflected in the review queue, so don't feel bad about it. In the end it seems that the edit was accepted, ...

Okay, here's my schedule (in UTC): \begin{array}{llcr} \text{day} & \text{sub-}& \text{opt. time} &\text{sub-} \\\hline \text{Monday} & 2:00 \sim & 3:00 - 15:00 & \sim 17:00 \\ \text{Tuesday - Thursday} & 1:00 \sim & 3:00 - 15:00 & \sim 17:00 \\ \text{Friday} & 1:00 \...

That was me. (Oops.) The question was on the front page due to a new answer on it. (I usually only do cleanup on front page stuff.) I didn't realize the question was so old and don't mind the reject. Note: I just went back to the question to see why it was on the front page. You might want to take a look at the new answer. I flagged it, so it's probably in ...

I have done this manually and grabbed some other necessary edits in the questions. On the plus side, I have given fans of the front page lots of old "new" stuff to look at. If it returns, I will request that it be purged permanently.

The few times I joined, I had fun enough to want to come back. However, the time we held it was a serious complication for my private life. In order to attract more people to the whole event we might want to check the best times when to hold it in the first place. It might be, that Fridays was just right, but checking first would probably give everyone the ...

The Optimal Time Range: My schedule is a bit relaxed, so I can give y'all some wide choice. (Time is UTC) \begin{array}{cc} {\bf \large Day} & {\bf \large Opt. time} \\\hline \rm \small MON & 11:30-14:30~\&~18:30-20:30\\ \rm \small TUE & 10:00-13:30~\&~15:30-18:30\\ \rm \small WED & 10:00-18:30\\ \rm \small THU & 7:00-11:30\\ \...

I would like to take part in TRE(II). A couple of ideas regarding scheduling. It would be great if this was held over winter break or Summer and perhaps last a few days. In addition, when finding a good time to schedule it, we use a Doodle poll (not affiliated with Doodle poll, I just like it because it works and it's free) to find a good time for the most ...

I know that I'm literally digging up a fossil of a post here, but if this ever happens again, then another good candidate for tagging is pericyclics. Even if TRE(II) doesn't formally happen in the near future, feel free to just go ahead and do some edits. Anyway, the tag is a relatively recent creation and as such is not applied to many questions where it ...

Do the same cleanup as we did at TRE (I). I was quite sad to see that 85 questions now have organic-chemistry as their only tag. There are also 150 questions that have inorganic-chemistry as their only tag.

The Optimal Time Range: My time is stressed this year cause I'm in the last year of high school.So, these are my opt. time range (in UTC) Monday until Friday: 12:30-14:30 Saturday: Basically free from 6:30-14:30 (But not next Saturday cause I'm busy) Sunday: Basically free from 8:00-14:30 The Sub-optimal Time Range: I have some tutoring work to do after ...

A reaction cleanup event took place on 8 Apr 2017, from approximately 3:30 to 6:00 UDT. Participants in the main event included (listed in alphabetical order; if I missed anybody, please edit yourself in!): hBy2Py M.A.R. Mithoron orthocresol Loong dropped in to assist with some extra mod actions, and Melanie Shebel was active prior to the "official" event....

I would be in favor of creating a separate tag for network covalent bonding, since I think there could be a class of questions specifically relating to the nature of said bonding in crystalline solids which could be more particularly described by that tag than by some combination of the relevant existing tags (i.e., covalent-compounds, crystal, crystalline-...

It means general chemistry. In other words, the explanation is meant to be delivered in easy terms. Maybe not true reality, but something that is well understood and not mentally two tough to grasp. Also meant to denote questions which are categorized as general chemistry, such as trivial topics like molariy, combustion, electron configuration, ect. It ...
