You should flag the question as in need of moderator intervention. Moderators are able to migrate suitable questions to any destination. The belongs on another site close/flag shortcut exists for common destinations where migrating users on the source site are likely to be familiar with the on-topic rules for the proposed destination (no one wants to ...

No. I do acknowledge that generally it should be easier to understand what the question is about when the tag shows the full name of a product than when it shows an abbreviation. However, in my view that argument's weight is lessened in this specific case by the fact that the SSMS abbreviation is fairly well-known in the SQL Server world. And we do show ...

I migrated it and the migration was rejected: that's not a bad outcome for a question we aren't sure about, but the response I had in chat was: I'm not sure whether it is an ontopic question or not, but it fails to meet the "being a question" criterion :-) Which is a bit worrying - we probably only want to migrate those we are reasonably confident ...

Sort of. It is worth having sql-server-management-studio but it should be a synonym of ssms as management-studio currently is. Result: ssms would remain the display tag, but tag search etc. would match the longer forms. status-completed

The question doesn't make an explicit case for the new tag, beyond continuing the line of existing Windows Server version tags. So, this seems like a good time to look at the utility of the whole hierarchy. The FAQ describes the reasons for tagging questions: Tags connect experts with questions they will be able to answer. Tags are for sorting your ...

An alternative, not so nice but simpler, would be to have css line-height: 1 set for code blocks (.post-text pre { line-height: 1; }) on dba.se. Unicode tables like this would then not have broken lines: values ('Donald Duck') , ('Micky Mouse'); ┌─────────────┐ │ column1 │ ├─────────────┤ │ Donald Duck │ │ Micky Mouse │ └─────────────┘ so they ...

I do like the idea, however it has been declined multiple times by the network at large. I think this is the canonical post: Make links posted by users open in a new window And I'm not 100% certain, but I suspect we couldn't get an exception for our site. Because so many other sites don't bother to do this, I've become quite accustomed to right-clicking ...

Out of all the questions posted on Database Administrators, only two have stacked quotes: ORA-04031: unable to allocate bytes of shared memory ("","","","") ORA-01555: snapshot too old: rollback segment number with name "" too small ...and both of those render correctly. Only one question has nested quotes:...

No SSMS is the common term among users, it would be like renaming SQL to the full term!

Yes. This makes sense. We should do this (with ssms as a synonym), at least as a trial. The rename could be easily reversed if any of the anticipated drawbacks actually materialize. Our tags are inconsistently expanded - mostly due to the historical tag length limitation e.g. erd That said, the question is not about whether all acronyms should be ...

You're doing it wrong. You can't nest quotes like that. The proper form is: "Quotes 'in' the titles", are backwards "when 'nested' or 'stacked'" When nesting quotes, you switch from double to single quotes.
