According to the ETS they have discontinued the computer science GRE test as of April 2013 https://www.ets.org/gre/subject/faq and there are some questions regarding the computer science GRE test and scores, should these questions be dealt with now (maybe by adding a header note to the question), or after five years as the scores will continue to be reportable for that period?

Is a general GRE test required if I have already passed a GRE Subject Test?

How much score in GRE computer science subject test is considered 'good'?

So long as the scores can still be reported, then we should keep the questions as such, although we could of course add a note that the test can no longer be taken.

  • How can we add that note?

  • Well, if you have enough reputation points, you can directly edit the post to include a disclaimer at the top of the question. If not, you can still make the change, but it would need to be approved by a moderator.

    One note: mass editing of such warnings would move all these posts to the top of the front-page, and flood it with these old questions… maybe we should do it on an as-needed basis

    Excellent point. I would suggest that whenever such a question becomes active again, add the note. Also, we should probably add it already to the one or two most-viewed questions. That way we add it where the most eyeballs will see it.
