Besides Martin's proposal about the modal window for first-time question-askers, are there any other items on meta which are stalled pending a moderator adding the status-review tag?

@TimCampion Not really in need of , but probably things which might need input from the moderators (probably the "old" moderators) might be: Is there a software solution if we do cut the cord from SE? and Tea archive (mathoverflow.tqft.net) seems to be down.
I have mentioned both to François G. Dorais previously when he asked about outstanding issues on meta.
The tqft website was set up by Scott Morrison and he also communicated with Stack Exchange when MO wanted to create the redirect - so he might be the right person to ask about that.
The people who run MO before it joined Stack Exchange network are probably in a good position what was used back then.
There is also the issue of deprecated tags - although that would probably be a discussion for MO editors' lounge.

I've been away for a long while. Yes, I remember that tag issue and I can probably finish it off.
I have mentioned a few pointers to discussions about deprecated tags in that room: chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/10243/2021/4/22
@TimCampion You have mentioned this post: Customize the modal window for the first-time askers. I should add that before adding the tag, it is needed to create the proposed text of that modal window, first.
I have posted some proposal, but I do not find it really satisfactory. (And judging by the score, neither does the MO community.)
In fact, I have posted this after I was nudged by François G. Dorais.

I was planning to write a feature request about customizing the modal window for the first time askers. But I did not have time to do it. (So I envy you a bit, if you have some free time now.)

@MartinSleziak Thanks, good to know!
I'm starting to learn about the existing ways the mods keep track of things like this, and it seems I'm replicating conversations you've had with Francois in the last few months.
Regarding the modal window, the plan right now is to post a new meta question with a concrete proposal. I'm hoping we will have it posted in the next day or two.

@MartinSleziak Do you happen to remember the precise length constraints for the modal window?
Or maybe @Catija, if she's pingable here.
I might also try pinging Catija elsewhere.
Also Martin, I notice that somehow your link to the discussion in this chat room on the modal window back in January has it classified as a "conversation" within this chat room or something like that.
I don't know how much conversation the new meta post is going to generate, but it might end up making sense to set up something like that again. I don't know how it works, though. If that becomes appropriate and you'd like to do it or else walk me through the process, that would be good.
 
Catija is pingable in this room. As a mod, you also have a super-ping.
 
nice
I got her attention in a private chat.
 
8:19 PM
@TimCampion You can see how to bookmark a conversation in this conversation: chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/9369/conversation/…
I don't know what is the character limit for the text in the modal window.
 
Catija says there's no hard length, but no longer than ELU
@MartinSleziak Thanks!

It is getting quite late in my timezone. See you later!
