@lucifer just to let you know (if i don't get time to email now): the room won't be reopened, and ive already discussed your points with balpha. Also, he sort of said "end of story", so no point forwarding to him. I can discuss some related points with you in the email.
So looking through the source again I thought I'd go and see if there's a new version of the template plugin. Alas:
> Note: The jQuery team has decided not to take this plugin past beta. It is no longer being actively developed or maintained. See vBeta1.0.0 tag for released beta version. Requires jQuery version 1.4.2.
Well, it's worked well enough I suppose. Not sure if there's any need to swap it out with something else that's actually been maintained
It's not too bad - you can implement a lot of the stuff like autocomplete and sliders yourself quickly, but you'll never cover all the edge cases like they do and have the level of support in terms of accessibility
At the time I didn't have enough reputation to post an answer to my own question, in the dialog it said to edit the original post. I have enough now so I'll remedy it.
Edit: It's closed nothing I can do. — Tocs17 hours ago
didn't realise you can't self-answer with low rep, but curious what the message says now too. Might explain a lot of edits that should be answers....
I don't think there's much moderators can do about it though other than possibly delete the self answer (which wouldn't be right and isn't actively harming you) or remove the bounty entirely and refund the OP
@Flexo I commented on the answer so the OP might read my answer and realize it's the same and accept it. I don't think it should get removed as it's a right answer, and it's not abusive, just kind of a duplicate.
Well, the bit you see after logging in is still the same
Hmm, they sent me an email telling me their policy has changed
> Effective through the calendar year 2012, The Merchant Referral Bonus Program ("the Bonus") will be discontinued for all account holders and the Merchant Referral Bonus Policy will no longer be in effect.
> Consumer advisory - PayPal Pte. Ltd. the holder of PayPal's stored value facility, does not require the approval of the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Users are advised to read the terms and conditions carefully.
Hmmm, I wonder why is this posted in the footer of Paypal's site
@AakashM Yes, of course. It mentions the MAS, of course it's the Singapore site
> When the stored value outstanding in the SVF scheme exceeds a prescribed threshold limit set in the PS(O)A, the SVF is regarded as a widely accepted SVF (WA SVFs). Currently the threshold limit stands at $30 million. The approval of MAS is required for the continued operation of this type of SVF scheme. The PS(O)A defines WA SVFs as a stored value facility -
Well, from memory, the MAS acts as Singapore's Central Bank, thus doing the usual administrative tasks like issuing legal tender, etc. It also regulates the financial industry, and keeps the country's exchange rate within a pre-set band
That's as far as I can remember. Which isn't much, actually
There are numerous posts on meta about editing questions with
Thanks in advance
Thank you, Sean
Please help me!!
im such a noob sorry for takin ur time
and many of them seem to conflict each other.
In my opinion, these edits are not too minor, even if that is the only thing wrong...
@Drise @DanielFischer got my vote on that one. Most of the rejected ones you linked had quite a few errors left in them from a quick glance. I'd try to improve rather than reject edits where only one or two things were missed, but that takes ages and I'm less likely to improve if the edit queue is full.
@Drise I'm mentioning this, because before this system get placed, I had about 120 suggested edits pending every day... some over 10 hours. Now, with the new system, there's up to 10 suggested edits pending.
@Flexo Note also: @DanielFischer got mine as well.
@Drise yeah since the new one came in place I've not seen it above about 30. Previously it was hovering close to 200 a lot of the time. Not sure how much that's novelty and how much it's making the tool better or letting more people using it.
but the goal with every edit ought to always be "fix everything"
from my perspective assessing if an edit is a genuine attempt to fix everything or just fishing for 2 rep with the least effort required is quite a subjective call to make -- I try to be generous but I'm less inclined to do so when the queue is full (the "this edit was helpful" I try to tick based on the ratio of my time spent improving to the original time spent suggesting the edit)
I'm not good at analysis, but this query might help: Suggested edit acceptance percentage, by user. It looks like ~36% of reviewers have >=90% acceptance percentage (they accept ALL / most of the edits). However, the average acceptance percentage among the top 100 reviewers (by quantity) is ~78%. (This is all with the filter set at >=25 suggested edits voted on) — jadarnel272 hours ago
I was flagging some items yesterday, and went back and checked my flags. I found this:
Reddit api request limit? ->
From my understanding, this could lead to spamming of reddit. This question does not sit right with me. – 18 hours ago declined - a moderator reviewed your flag, but found no evi...
My take on the specific question is that it's dumb (why would they have a limit if they wanted you to be able to post as often as you wanted?), and kind of slimy (why would you be asking this except to break reddit's rule?) but probably technologically legitimate.
Yeah, my experience is that mods sometimes don't look at things very closely unless you make it very clear that they should. It's up to you to decide whether that's the only pragmatic approach based on time constraints and the sheer volume of flags they have to deal with (which is the explanation I've seen them proffer) or an abrogation of their duties.
@jadarnel27 you could easily find suspensions with the data dump
just look for the blip across the time series rep values. You'd miss the short ones by the Nyqist theorem
@Drise - maybe use a screenshot to show that it was a custom flag. If someone else flagged spam/offensive the decline on your flag might be collateral damage given the way flags get grouped together. (I think, you'd need a mod to confirm this)
@jadarnel27 ah the other two really low rep users are SE employees - was wondering how they'd reviewed that many edits!
Hofstadter's law is a self-referencing time-related adage, coined by Douglas Hofstadter and named after him.
Hofstadter's Law was a part of Douglas Hofstadter's 1979 book Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid. The law is a statement regarding the difficulty of accurately estimating the time it will take to complete tasks of any substantial complexity. It is often cited amongst programmers, especially in discussions of techniques to improve productivity, such as The Mythical Man-Month or extreme programming. The recursive nature of the law is a reflection of the universal experienc...
A Tsunami barrier is any barrier that prevents or deters the force of a tsunami wave.
The most common use of the term "natural barrier" is in geography, where it refers to a naturally occurring obstacle to movement, especially of people and especially at modest technological levels.
Mountains, swamps, deserts and icefields are among the clearest examples of natural barriers. Rivers are a more ambiguous example, as they may obstruct large-scale movement across them (especially by armies) but may facilitate smaller-scale movement along them in boats, once some of the people...
Humour or humor (see spelling differences) is the tendency of particular cognitive experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement. The term derives from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks, which taught that the balance of fluids in the human body, known as humors (Latin: humor, "body fluid"), control human health and emotion.
People of all ages and cultures respond to humour. The majority of people are able to experience humour, i.e., to be amused, to laugh or smile at something funny, and thus they are considered to have a sense of humour. The hypothetical person lacki...
The idiom the straw that broke the camel's back is from an Arabic proverb about how a camel is loaded beyond its capacity to move or stand. This is a reference to any process by which cataclysmic failure (a broken back) is achieved by a seemingly inconsequential addition (a single straw). This also gives rise to the phrase "the last/final straw", used when something is deemed to be the last in a line of unacceptable occurrences. Variations of this idiom include "the straw that broke the donkey's back", "melon that broke the monkey's back" and "feather that broke the camel's back".
You kids get off my lawn! is an American idiom of the late 20th century and early 21st century.
The phrase presents in a jocularly sarcastic fashion the supposed reaction of an archetypical elderly middle-class homeowner confronting obstreperous teenagers crossing or entering his property. More generally the idiom pokes fun at older conservative bourgeoisie as a class.
Slight variations such as "Hey, get off my lawn!" and "You kids get out of my yard!" are sometimes employed.
Until the late 19th Century, lawns in the modern sense were mainly associated with the estates of th...

@animuson "I wasn't being more of a jerk than usual" is pretty different than "I wasn't being a jerk." And "I expect this to be deleted at some point" is no justification for any amount of being a jerk. And all of that aside... I'm not sure your answer is even correct.
A late fee, also known as a late fine or a past due fee, is a charge levied against a client by a company or organization for not paying a bill or returning a rented or borrowed item by its due date. Its use is most commonly associated with businesses like creditors, video rental outlets and libraries. Late fees are generally calculated on a per day, per item basis.
Organizations encourage the payment of late fees by suspending a client's borrowing or rental privileges until accumulated fees are paid, sometimes after these fees have exceeded a certain level.
Significant portions of the r...
Compound interest arises when interest is added to the principal, so that, from that moment on, the interest that has been added also earns interest. This addition of interest to the principal is called compounding. A bank account, for example, may have its interest compounded every year: in this case, an account with ¤1000 initial principal and 20% interest per year would have a balance of ¤1200 at the end of the first year, ¤1440 at the end of the second year, and so on.
In order to define an interest rate fully, and enable one to compare it with other interest rates, the interest rat...
Lucky. This makes me think of my bank's overdraft policy. They recently changed it to be $33 instantly the moment you overdraft (insane) and $1 per day that it's still in overdraft up to a week, then some strange amount for every week after that.
Right, I've had a very similar problem with my bank before. They charge an increasing fee for each transaction after the overdraft. So if you have multiple pending transactions that all clear around the same time, you could have hundreds of dollars in overdraft fees.
(which I did once or twice while I was in college)
My bank charged me an overdraft fee recently because I made an expensive purchase without thinking about it, and charged me $10 or so for their trouble. Only they didn't actually post the charge that caused the overdraft until two days later, at which point I had gotten paid electronically and I had enough funds to cover it anyway.
The Wikipedia articles on Stack Overflow and Stack Exchange are... awful.
Someone recently managed to find my email address (I assume they had to go through my SO profile page to my website) and email me their question when I failed to answer it satisfactorily for them!

I've found that Swype's text-to-speech works well enough that I can talk to my phone to send text messages. Which, frankly, leaves me with the uneasy feeling that I'm now using a Rube Goldberg device purely to distance myself from others.
It said I had 3 but there was nothing listed. I had to refresh the page to get it to work and show the TalkTo welcome. I think that little tour thing messed it up (which I did not even initialize and there's no way to exit it once it's started).
