Anyone else been visited by the self-appointed link police?
Some clowns turned up and put comments in a question regarding books stating that the Amazon links in the question were affiliate links.
Pity they didn't look closer, or know what an affiliate link looks like. Those of us hitting amazo...
Please remove the moderator ability described in this chat message. I just don't think it should be available, as it could easily be abused.
Mods can also come into your house at night and leave your milk out. Some mod abilities aren't talked about much.
@rchern How had you been doing it? I had to create a flickr account just for SE images, and maybe I just don't know the fancy shortcuts but it took me forever to get the URL of the raw image I could plug in to the old image dialog thing.
Most of the images I post on the SE sites are screenshots. I'd do winkey > snip > enter to open up Snipping > drag the mouse around the area I want > ctrl+c to toss the image into clipboard > imaer uploads the image in my clipboard to imgur. On SE, ctrl+g > ctrl+v = done.
There are currently a few year tags that should be removed (unless the year or number itself is an issue), probably added because of versioning.
Many of these are just [product]-[year] without the hyphen or [product][year]. I...
It's nice to be aware of the current trends in our industry, and I would like to know what books have been released this year that are worth reading.
I'm especially interested in books about languages, but I'd like to hear about other kinds of programming books as well.
For example, JVM languag...
(Similar to Give Diamond Moderators the Ability to Partially Lock a Post)
It would be nice if diamond mods could have the ability to prevent edits on a question/answer.
For example, the famous Regex match open tags answer has been (in the not recent past) defaced by a user who decided it was ...
Meta Stack Overflow seems to have different rules and user behavior than the "regular" Stack Exchange sites. How is it different?
Individual questions answered below:
What do votes mean on Meta? Why was my well-written post downvoted?
When should posts on Meta be set to community wiki?
I'm wondering what the motivation is to have the quickleave and quickswitch icons hidden by default and only visible when you hover over the area.
With the icons hidden until you hover above them, this means that if you are moving your mouse there with the intent to switch rooms, it feels li...
@rchern You may. I no longer wished to be in that room. I suppose you could argue that I didn't really need to leave, but it gets the mini-notification-thing out of the current window, and it's... "semantically correct."
i have a pretty map of the US:
i would like to implement a tooltip with multiline functionality such as here over the red square:
please help me get started on this...
I submit to you the following quartet of indisputable facts:
Stack Overflow is for people who are bored at work.
Having animations and video games are more exciting (and therefore less boring) than not having animations and video games.
Chrono Trigger is the best video game ever made.
I was a bit bummed the unit testing help room has already been frozen from lack of activity since it was the closest room I could find on TDD. I'm failing miserably at getting myself started on projects with TDD.
Well not brilliantly, it's a personal project of mine at the moment. A small simple build server that accepts url ping's from github for a project, pulls the latest source down, builds it and emails me the results.
Well, maybe. But I was texting to let her know that I got a phishing chat message on Facebook from her. And a minute after I sent it she posted on FB saying not to click the link if she sends it because she clicked it and it was sending it to everyone.
