That's a fair question, and one I sometimes wondered about too before becoming a moderator. Generally speaking, if something might require an internal discussion, then we'll bring it up in our moderator chat room. If it might impact the community however, then we'll discuss it here on the Meta site so it's visible to everyone. There's usually more internal ...

This has been addressed on the main Stack Exchange meta site: Would it be OK to paste content from Wikipedia into a popular empty tag-wiki? What to do about large amounts of plagiarizing in tag wikis? Make rules regarding copying tag wiki content from other websites more explicit Copying tag-wiki text from SO to SF is it (citation needed)? User ...

You are more than welcome to edit this question to improve it. Changing ...

I can imagine that it is a very tough job moderating a site like this one. Indeed, other Stack Exchanges sites are far more active and the job much larger. Personality, expertise, and experience will always be a part of the human equation. Whenever humans are a part of the process, the effect will change depending upon the individual and the days experience....

About the specific edit you seem to ask about: While a moderator also edited your question, the edit that removed tags came from me (I’m not a mod). Why I removed the microdata tag: Microdata is just a syntax, while Schema.org can be used with various syntaxes (commonly JSON-LD. Microdata, and RDFa). Your question doesn’t seem to be about how to use ...

I think that they need to be approved because if they are same... they are same. Just for example... definition of let's say wordpress here and on SO is same or it should be the same.

Hope many users of Pro Webmasters are going to enter into this election. To all, don't forget maybe there is a t-shirt to win :-). Good luck to all candidates!
