The penalty box (sometimes called the sin bin, bad box, or bin) is the area in ice hockey, rugby football and some other sports where a player sits to serve the time of a given penalty, for an offense not severe enough to merit outright expulsion from the contest. Teams are generally not allowed to replace players who have been sent to the penalty box.
It’s not something we looked forward to, but as of tonight, we’re instituting a penalty box on Stack Overflow. …

I understood that, in order to delete or undelete, you need 3 10k+ users to vote.
But if the person that votes to undelete it is the owner, can he do it with just his vote alone?
Here is the question; it will probably be deleted again by the time you see this.
Edit: Also could be undelete as ...
Can the owner of a question get it undeleted with his vote alone? and also could be undelete many times?
Through this question, I found out about this other question, that the OP keeps undeleting with merely one vote.
I'm not positive I understood this discussion, but Jeff's answer makes it sound like a question with 2+ answers requires three votes to undelete -- the owner can't undelete with a single vote. I don't quite understand the motivation behind the 2+ answer part, so I might be reading it wrong.
Usually the graphics card is the most important part, but there are some very CPU-intensive games out there. Very important is the resolution you're playing at, the higher the resolution the better the graphics card should be. You don't need a very expensive card to play at medium to high setting...
Whilst many people will tell you that a graphics card is the most important component for gaming, it is not strictly true. The truth is that the balance of components is the most important.
In your case, anything but a modest graphics card will be overkill for your system. Even if you had a top ...

I was thinking of how it could be improved (I was not necessarily going to suggest these to the community & designers, because they may like it the way it is; just for my own future reference I suppose), i.e. some ways to keep the same functionality but make it a little less distracting.
Ideas were, for example, less prominent voting buttons (perhaps a slightly different way, I don't have the time to go into a lot of detail right now, need to go out for a bit), or voting at the bottom of an answer; in short, ways to increase use of the forebrain.
Currently, the badge logic is:
your answer has a positive score
your answer isn't deleted
your vote on a competing answer occurs after your answer
Also, for the purposes of all vote-based badges, deleted votes (i.e. votes you undo) are never factored in.
@PopularDemand Hm, yeah....to give credit to any better answers that came along after you posted. That would make...some sense. But, that isn't the criteria, so...hrm. I mean, you don't have a "stake" in the question if you haven't answered yet, but if you vote then give your own answer anyway, I don't really see how that changes anything.
It'll be interesting to see what the rationale is at any rate..

A fiscal year (or financial year, or sometimes budget year) is a period used for calculating annual ("yearly") financial statements in businesses and other organizations. In many jurisdictions, regulatory laws regarding accounting and taxation require such reports once per twelve months, but do not require that the period reported on constitutes a calendar year (i.e., January through December). Fiscal years vary between businesses and countries. Fiscal year may also refer to the year used for income tax reporting.
In addition, many companies find that it is convenient for purposes of co...
Aw, oneboxing doesn't take subsections into account. (The URL I posted there was wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiscal_year#United_States)
Happy Hour is a marketing term for a period of time in which a restaurant or bar offers discounts on alcoholic drinks, such as beer, wine, and cocktails.
Typically, it is in the late afternoon Monday through Thursday, usually taking place at some period between 4 PM and 7 PM. This promotion is intended to boost business on what may otherwise be a slow day. In most cases the "happy hour" lasts longer than a single hour.
The term Happy Hour also is commonly used to describe the gathering of work colleagues at a restaurant or bar after work hours, possibly outside the...

The SO one is a reference to that massively upvoted HTML parsing with regexp answer, the SU one is Clippy, and the gaming one is (going to be? not sure if it's implemented) a thing to do random dice rolls

@RogerPate That's what you'd think; this guy apparently thought it was appropriate to write a script to ask a question about every poker-related topic he could think of. Anyhow, his account has been suspended now. I was just impressed.
@PopularDemand It seems to be working out OK, though it's a bit early to tell. What's on topic is pretty much what's on-topic at BoardGameGeek; people asking questions about "what are good games for this situation" (such as 2-player cooperative), people asking about strategy, people asking for rules clarification.
@PopularDemand Yeah, BGG isn't very well designed, but it has a pretty good community and a lot of good content. You get used to it after a little while; they kind of took a firehose approach, of adding every possible feature they could think of, not all of them all that well thought out.
Though I did stop using it a while back, as I found it just too busy and cluttered, there were a few bits of stupid drama, as well as the fact that I wasn't doing as much board gaming.
