Having both languages in the title gets crowded. It makes it harder to quickly scan a list of question titles. Someone who is reading quickly might miss the second half of the title anyway. Therefore I do not recommend it as a general rule. If you're asking a question in Portuguese, leave the title in Portuguese. If you're asking a question in English, ...

At least 7 days, but it will depend on how the private beta is going. About an official response, this answer from Chris W. Rea has been edited by Robert Cartaino♦ in a way that now it says (emphasis mine): I understand the typical private beta is at least 7 days, but sometimes it gets extended if the private beta does not yet have their scope worked ...

As you are asking about these two words (neologismo and estrangeirismo) in portuguese, it should remain untraslated. Also I think that in every sentence including a foreign word, that word should be in italics. So the question in portuguese would be O que é Neologismo e qual a diferença dela com Estrangeirismo? and in english it would be What is ...

Podes verificar na ajuda do site que a ideia é poderes perguntar nas duas línguas, mas sugere-se que se pergunte e responda em português. No meta, tanto quanto sei deve-se escrever em inglês para que toda a gente possa compreender e discutir os assuntos do site e para facilitar a vida aos CM's da rede SE. Should I write in Portuguese or English? ...

English (Em Português mais abaixo) The Help centre has this to say about translations: We are not a translation service, nor do we purport to be experts in languages other than Portuguese. Asking about the meaning of a difficult Portuguese sentence is fine. So is asking how to express an idea in idiomatic Portuguese. But please don't ask us to translate a ...

This is my opinion on it: Experimenting? Sure. While in private beta, we can try out a variety of questions and use them as examples when discussing what is on-topic. If exploring the boundaries of what is on-topic, I'd say: post just one "fake" question; see how it is received; and bring your findings to meta for discussion if necessary. Seeding? No. ...

Trying to demystify some jargons: In my humble opinion, of course. It can be easily found on a quick search on Google So what? Others sites across the internet usually don't have any kind of quality control. We do! If you copy and paste the first result for a simple answer here you'll probably get some rep points, but if a better answer is written ...

Enquanto uma resposta mais completa não aparece, a sequência é mais ou menos assim: primeiro um ou mais Community Manager faz a moderação do site; ver Is there a CM designated to be responsible for the community? depois quando o site já está em pleno movimento, a comunidade sugere e a empresa (ou serão os CMs?) designa moderadores pro-tempore enquanto não ...

Foi uma mudança temporária acidental que afetou toda a rede: We just pushed a build [Taryn ♦] Fixed! We’ve got a new theming API in Stacks that was leaking a bit. Funnily enough, all the themes we happened to test via smoke tests already had orange buttons so we didn't catch it. [Aaron Shekey ♦]

(Bilingual answer: English on top, Portuguese at the end.) English tldr: yes, for de→pt; but for pt→de, ask in german.SE. Questions about German<->Portuguese? My understanding is that it is on-topic to ask for X→pt, and pt→en. This I derived from a previous discussion here in meta: We'll allow translations to and from which languages? This ...

After following the link provided on Jorge B.'s answer I came across this official answer(asked on Meta.ServerFault SE). It states that: Questions per day = (# of new questions over last 14 days) / 14 If you mouse hover over the box with the number of questions per day it clearly says: 1.2 questions per day on average over the past 2 weeks.

Proposal. In the title, no formatting is available, so let's use quote marks; and in the body of a post, *[Any language] word* or *[Any language] expression* which puts the text in italics. Comment. It's not great, since a reader might miss this formatting in the middle of a sentence. I had to rearrange my whole question to avoid having a in the middle of ...

jmac♦ unofficial answer How are the "questions per day" calculated? What the Stats Say We want to find a number matching 7,176 questions per day over the past two weeks. Simple Search I searched for all questions created in the past two weeks (October 1st through October 14th) with this simple search. This returns 100,489 questions. Dividing by ...

(I hope you don't mind me answering in English...) You can click on the 'Inquisitive' label in your profile, and the popup shows that while you did satisfy the requirement to ask a positively received question on at least 30 days, you still need a so-called 'positive question record': The FAQ tells what that means: In order to qualify for any of these ...

Todas as dúvidas sobre a nossa língua se encontram no google. Até porque toda a gente sabe um bocado da sua própria língua. No caso da programação é diferente.

I think "questions per day" is something like a one-week or two-week average. (If you're interested in the precise number, you can take 10 minutes to count the questions yourself, or take 15 minutes to write a nice question on Meta.SE, or both...) In the first few days/weeks we had many question. The point of only taking a relatively short period of time ...

One use of code formatting I've seen here that I find attractive and useful is for referring to orthography. For example, using nh (instead of using nh or nh or [nh] or "nh") to refer to the digraph, or - (instead of "-") to refer to a hyphen. I feel strongly that it shouldn't be used to emphasize words or ideas, as there are already more appropriate ways ...
