What this post is for
Some issues we face as a community are more urgent than others. We can ask meta-questions about them, upvote those meta questions and the mods can feature some of those meta-questions. But upvoted meta-questions and urgent matters are not synonymous. And there is only a limited amount of space in the featured-on-meta sidebar. Additionally, Some issues, though urgent, don't get resolved due to either inability to do so by the mods or a lack of a consensus.
This post shall aim to draw additional attention (more votes => better chance of a consensus) to these urgent matters, while simultaneously providing an overview of what serious issues we still need to resolve.
How to use this post
If there is an issue that you deem critical and urgent, you can link a meta-post about it in a separate answer to this post. If no meta-post about it exists yet, one should be made for. This is important since answers here should be actionable. You can, additionally to linking a current post about it, briefly explain what the issue is about and outline what has happened so far. You can also link other relevant discussions, be it in chat or on meta. Do not in any case argue for any side of the debate going on about the issue, keep posts here factual.
For voters: do not vote based on whether you like the post the answer links to or not, but rather on whether you think the issue it addresses is important for our community. These are two different things!
[Issue](link to current meta question)
What to do with resolved issues
When an issue mentioned in this answer gets resolved it will get edited down to:
[Issue [resolved]](link to answer, comment or question declaring it resolved)
So as to not take up too much space. If this starts to take up too much space anyway, this policy might be changed to deleting the answers instead (perhaps We could keep the newest 3 or so).
