comment Why does 'Disks' Utility mounting does not work?
Let me guess: The partitions you're trying to mount belong to another OS?

@Shog9 I believe that launchpad link is in the user profile. (Which should be sufficient, since I'm not seeing any mention of this link being actually required in the nomination post - that would be quite annoying with the character limit.)

@virtualxtc I very much disagree with your second comment. I'm very well aware of how duplicates work. The problem arises when we close hundreds of crap questions as duplicates of multiple questions. We're not managing to close all duplicates to the same target, so there is no use in piling onto that mess - in the worst case even leaving a duplicate that doesn't get closed, or - again - gets closed incorrectly.

@virtualxtc I think I have already addressed most of these things in the meta posts I link to in my nomination. Tech support inherently does not work with the Stack Exchange format - it needs to much information and a back-and-forth with the asker. The SE format is not made for either of those things. It is Canonical that has pushed us into this position over time (by presenting us as tech support), and I very much disagree with those decisions. We need to get people to use their close votes more frequently instead of waiting and letting posts rot, contributing to our low Percent Answered.

So, you're saying the mods we elected last year were less active than expected? And you're now running because you don't think you ... need to be active? I'm sorry, I really can't wrap my head around this.

An option that doesn't want to be an option doesn't really make sense to me. Why would anyone vote for you if you don't intend to be active? Why do you think people would need another option when we have 14 candidates (plus yourself now)?

I most certainly think it is. Not only is everyone open to ask questions such as these, but I feel these are questions that need to be asked. A moderator, especially on a troubled site like ours, will face challenges they need to be prepared for. These questions make candidates consider their position and look further than what they have already incorporated.

@LuísdeSousa I beg to differ. I have already explained that these issues I mentioned are not something I - or any moderator - can directly influence. We can try to motivate people with, say, meta posts, but this still requires the community to be receptive of it. What I can do, and I have also pointed that out already, is take care of the mess that these problems cause. Handle the things the community is, because of the overarching problems, no longer fully able to - closures, flags, getting on top of the new questions, all of these things.
