comment Can US citizens go to Cuba freely and vice versa after the recent diplomatic relation restoration?
Simply diplomatic relations have been reopened. All other embargoes are being maintained as they presently are, making this essentially a duplicate.

comment H-4 Visa holder looking for job
Work visas and jobs are generally considered off topic on travel.se (see help center). If you do post on expats, you'll need to provide a lot more detail about specifically what you're after, what visa you hope to change to, and what your citizenship is, and anything else you think may be relevant. Visas are complex processes, you can't just ask 'can anyone help me' - specifics are required.

comment Are there “turn up and board” shuttle buses from Cairns airport to the city, or do you always have to pre-book?
So then, are you happy with the question as is then, or would you prefer something along the lines of 'Is there a Cairns airport shuttle you can just turn up and use without pre-booking?'?

I don't think anyone expects it to happen to them, but it's nice to know what to expect if it does.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess at 'probably not, or we'd be using that site instead...'

@Tom if I'm not mistaken, the travel partners is the other question, not this one, and was for travel companions.

comment Where can I swim with the dolphins in the Eastern USA?
also it's worth noting that just because a past question is still in existence, they can't usually be pointed to to justify scope - the site has gone through some changes, and some questions are just kept around for historical purposes. I do think an edit will make it fine though, now that you've pointed out how few places there are.

comment Where can I swim with the dolphins in the Eastern USA?
Generally list questions are considered too broad as there are too many possible options. However, if it's like half a dozen, then you may be ok. You've listed almost that many in your question though? I'd consider editing the question to make it clear you're looking for the criteria, the title makes it seem like you're just looking for a list.
