Can I post this question in the main site?

I suggest you post on the Arduino Forum, possibly in Gigs and Collaborations, Products and Services or Exhibition / Gallery (but only one of those).

Can I post this question in the main site?

No. The main site is not a place for soliciting feedback for projects - it is a place for obtaining help with specific problems you may be having. There's nothing stopping you asking on Meta - though ...

Comments deleted on a closed question

I am sorry. I deleted the comments before the question was closed. I thought you convinced jsotola that the question is on topic and I didn't expect other members would think the question is off topic....

Edits not being approved/rejected for quite some time

There was a bit of a backlog, yes. I guess the community members haven't been doing their duty (or not enough of them anyway as it takes a few votes normally for each edit). I've cleared the queue.

Old questions appear in "active" question list

I agree with VE7JRO - the bot "Community" does this stuff. It is a bit annoying because you see a list of old questions for no obvious reason. Community is trying to either get an answer, or get ...

I have messed up my question what should I do now?

If your question has changed, it is better to leave the original question as is and ask a new question. That way the answers to the original question stay relevant.
