Question #27: Is there a way to keep the rear wheel nuts in the correct position even after jumping off a ramp or a curb? Landing is hard on the rear wheel which makes it move forward and loosens the chain tension.

Response: Yes, you can install rear axle tensioners on the rear bolts.

Cheap type:
Better type:

Take off the rear nuts, install the tensioners between the threads and the nuts. Tighten the tensioner so that the chain has reasonable tension. Then screw the rear axle nuts back on. The tensions hold the wheel against the frame so it can't slide forward.
