Links for websites that were used to show miners signaling support for segwit

Anyone got links for websites that were used to show miners signaling support for segwit? or screenshots? Also wanted to confirm if my assumptions are correct about the whole thing: Initially BIP 9 was supposed to activate segwit but there was lot of controversy BIP 91 was proposed but again controversy BIP 148 was proposed and everyone agreed to activate BIP 91 Finally BIP 141 was used to activate segwit

Why is BIP32 root key different for different standards(purposes)?

When generating key on https://iancolemen.com/bip39/, the BIP32 Root Key changes as I change the derivation path tab, e.g. BIP32, BIP44, BIP39 etc. Why is this the case? Isn't BIP32 Root Key the m at the beginning of the derivation path and the different standards are subsequent purpose that should not affect the root key? Contrary to the above, when I generate addresses with the following code in go, the master key printed always matches the BIP32 Root Key on iancolemen.com. And changing the purpose does not affect the address generated in the end, it is always a BIP32(legacy) address, instead…

Any website that explains most of the BIPs in a different way that newbies can understand better?

Almost everything about all the BIPs is explained on github : https://github.com/bitcoin/bips still looking for a website that explains them differently (simple language, diagrams, history, implementations, etc. which everyone can understand better and appreciate the importance of proposals in Bitcoin.

How does a miner put his vote for certain BIP?

I understand that a miner is the only one who can vote for a certain BIP, but I'm wondering, how do they technically do that? How do they submit their vote? I found out that they are doing it through the coinbase transaction, but I couldn't find any details on it. Thanks!

Private key to mnemonic words, is it safe?

Is it safe to do the following? Suppose I do not want the HD wallet, but I do want the convenience of using mnemonic words to remember the private key. I know I can convert the private key's hex representation to byte format from which I can get binary format, from there I can follow BIP-39 to generate 24 words that are represented by that private key (because general addresses are used by randomly producing a 256 bit word which is equivalent to 24 words). Can I now use these "mnemonic" words to remember my private key, and completely disregard…
