No reason we can't run our own "competitions." There won't be a prize, of course, unless someone volunteers to provide one or badgers SE into providing something, but we can certainly have a post of people showing off their photos.

The ghostly forests of the Goecha la trail, Sikkim, India. The rhododendrons provide a colorful feel to an otherwise scary forest. Circa May 2017.

This picture was taken in August of 2016, looking back up the trail towards Gannet Peak, the highest point in Wyoming and the most remote of all of the state highpoints. This was day 6 of the hike, I had summited the peak the day before.

I asked on meta.SE how we go about requesting embedded video support get turned on for The Great Outdoors. In theory, the results from turning this on should be a net positive. Background StackExchange has support for embedding YouTube videos. This support is enabled on a site-by-site basis. Some SE sites are using it, but most are not. If we want it, we ...

All StackExchange sites in beta use a standard theme. Some details here: The New Stack Exchange Beta Theme. When it progresses out of beta, it will get its own design. Sites remain in beta for at least 90 days, but may continue for much longer. There have been several previous questions about this, eg How close is this SE to going out of beta? and Are we ...

Yes, each site has a Twitter feed which sends out the top posts from the site automatically. The Twitter feed grabs up to 8 “Hot” questions per day I believe, but I don’t know the exact criteria.

All beta sites have the same colour scheme. I think this question has been asked before on meta.se but I don't think there was any appetite to change it. You can change it yourself, there are user scripts, or simply by editing the CSS. Here is a very good answer on how to do this!. It works for me, but then I see a lot of beta sites so I can't imagine it ...

Little trail on the north side of the Pentland Hills not far from my home, leading up towards a hiking trail and an old estate. Photo by me 8 Dec 2018.

This was clicked on the way to Chandra Taal. Altitude: Appox 4200 m or 13,800 ft. The river in the picture is Chandra. This later has a confluence with Bhaga river near Keylong, and then it flows into Pakistan and more popularly called as Chenab river. The cloud I fell in love with.

Uniting what the Valle de Viñales in Pinar del Río, Cuba, is famous for: Red earth, (here still fallow) tobacco fields, horses and the strange rock formations called mogotes. Picture taken in July 2018.

The desolate desert like terrain of the Spiti Valley, Himachal Pradesh India. Far off one can see the village of Mudh. One of the last villages in this valley. Pic taken circa August 2017

Tropical thunderstorm building up above on of the mogotes in Valle de Viñales in Pinar del Río, Cuba. Better not take that trail straight into it if you don't want to get wet! Picture taken in July 2018.

This was clicked on the way to Chandra Taal. Altitude: Appox 4200 m or 13,800 ft. The river in the picture is Chandra, after confluence with Bhaga, it flows into Pakistan and more popularly called as Chenab river.

Taken on a winter walk, back in 2012, in the National park Zuid Kennemerland. This is a typical trail in the park, which covers dunes. The highest hill of the area, as far as I know, is all of 45 meters. Photo by me, Willeke, can be used by all.

My suggestion. Recommendations for what item to purchase are off-topic; questions about what features one should look for are on-topic. Questions asking about the price of an item are also off topic as the information quickly becomes outdated. Consider asking in Chat instead.

I don't think we need a post notice. The Q&A process already has all the neccesary tools. If the question is outright dangerous in itself (e.g. asking for medication "recommendations"), it is most often off-topic -> close it. If the question contains a misconception or obviously dangerous intent, an answer can/needs to address that. Write that answer if ...

Trail to La Grande Soufrière (active volcano) on Guadeloupe.

Do we want to mark questions about things we think are crazy/stupid/ridiculous? As opposed to say nicely spelling out why it's not a good idea to use a tourniquet after a rattlesnake bite for example? I am not worried about misconceptions/mistakes/silly ideas in questions, we have unlimited answers to correct them and make the internet a better place in ...

It took a long time for me to visit Chat. Chat seemed to me, when I was a relatively new and low-rep user, as an in-group of the awesomely accomplished elect. They still seem awesomely accomplished -- or at least awesomely energetic -- but I no longer feel shy about posting in Chat. I think the suggestion to more explicitly urge users to visit Chat is a ...

I think one key guideline (which WedaPashi wrote, more or less, in a comment to this question) is whether the Outdoors community is more likely to know the answer, or the Travel community. It makes sense to leave a question that is likely to get a better answer from our community here. Clear-cut questions can be migrated away, but the ones I've seen so far ...

We have activated it here. You should see the hats by default (on the main site, but not here on meta). If you don't, you may need to turn them on, click the snowflake on the top bar
