I think the community-wiki format would work if there were questions like "What other effective ways could I write this algorithm in <language>?" (probably not a great example)...usually it's "What do you think about x?" or "What are the <subjective classification> things about <language>?"
That's why I don't really close as subjective on the SEs unless it's insanely bad. "What do you think about X" can generally be rephrased "What advantages does X have" or "Is there any reason not to use X", so I just make sure it's CW
@MichaelMrozek Yeah, that seems reasonable. The "What language should I use for...?" questions are in a similar boat, though even if they were reworded to not be so subjective, in many cases they're ridiculously broad.
Another problem is people who don't read the existing answers or feel like they have to give their own (instead of editing in their point where appropriate). Not a CW-specific issue, but there's less excuse for it to occur in that case.
Find as you type user feature always sorts on name. I find it a bit confusing that the sort order is swapped without me asking for it.
If I am sorting on popularity it should also sort on popularity.
For an added bonus, when the user filter box is cleared, the paging numbers should re-appear a...
@Jin The funny part is that there's a good reason to be upset about a poor design. If I were a Gap shareholder, I'd be really annoyed if they spent money changing all of their existing advertising and stores, only to find out that the logo was terrible and ineffective and had to be changed again.
@rchern Of course, emotion isn't always conveyed correctly in face-to-face conversation. We have merely created chat as a reflection of reality. But a reality with emphasis that is easier to standardise. Except for backwards smileys - we still can't make sense of them.
@JeffAtwood And people aren't always even good with that, either...I'm on the fence about committing to an Area 51 proposal because they defined themselves using the proposal topic, which doesn't remove the ambiguity, heh.
because it isn't real activity. you can't click to get the latest activity because the community bump supersedes it. and most importantly, maybe i'd stop spending 10 minutes scrolling through looking for the damn updated only to then realize it wasn't real activity!
