@statuscompleted nope, they made a functional chatroom that runs in a browser and is fairly stable (a bit of a feat in itself, if not original). additions like formatting aren't really part of that are they? :p ... at least we have formatting and something else ;)
During the re-tagging of questions, tags sometimes become orphaned from existing questions.
Are these zombie tags ever removed from the tags list? When are the tag counts shown in the list recalculated?

I've been doing some retagging on Super User lately, and the tag page still shows the old, crusty, now-orphaned tags. Worse, these tags are still available via the tag autocompletion, reporting their pre-retagging tag counts.
I'm not expecting the retagging to immediately remove those orphans f...
@DanGrossman what I like about that one is that it's catchy (dropbox is lonely), it's really stupid simple, it tells why you shouldn't forget to come back and it gives a URL (need a reminder?) and a url (stop getting our mail) and that's it. Those are the things I like.
@TimStone Yeah, but I changed my mind about that; I forgot when I wrote that answer about automatic tag deletion. Before the policy seemed to be "just retag all the existing ones, and hope nobody uses the tag anymore even though it still exists in the system", which completely didn't work
An index might be a strange word to some people. Generally it means a list of items that all have certain properties. If you were to create a list of all the cities in the world, you would have an index of cities. If you look in the back of a book, you would find an index of subjects covered in the book. All of these indexes are lists of items that have common properties (being a city, being a subject in a book, etc).
Indexes are extremely useful things while programming. Let's say I had a list of 10,000 recipes. Let's say then that every time someone ran our program, they would type in an…
There is a post I just wrote..
If anyone cares to learn about indexes and how they are a marvelous contraption
I have been looking at an issue for a week straight and have been unable to figure it out and I am desperate for the fix.
On a client site, we have two environments: UAT and PROD. UAT works perfect (Please keep this in mind). We are now trying to deploy the solution to PROD but cer...
And I just want to get mugged at knifepoint to get cut enough to wake me up cause I know that I don’t want to die sitting around watching my life go by and what we take from this is what we’ll get and we haven’t quite figured it out just yet because all of us are all too stuck strapped to a chair watching our lives blow up
It did happened to me that I posted a partial answer,but still the most relevant at that time, and after a while someone posted a better answer, mine got down-voted and I ended up deleting it completely.
I didn't expect such a level of ingratitude. How can you down-vote a partial, but still corre...
question, i have layed Vegas three times, but i see that after levcel 30 you get no more cool sounding experience points, but what if i want to level up some of my other skills like Medicine which i only have to level 80?
For a large site (ie. SO), I think we need more filtering options
It's slightly frustrating right now, because for non-answer answers there's really no way we can do anything. We can tell them what's the right thing to do, but the answer still exists, and leaving it there just doesn't seem responsible.
This is problematic for unregistered users, because AFAIK, they can't delete posts.
Heh, gaming.stackexchange.com/review/new-answers 's second to last answer-that-really-was-a-comment was already handled by a long comment by Oak. I open the last one and I find another unhandled answer-that-really-was-a-comment. Copy, paste, profit :P
this way, if it is a comment they want to post, we can point them to the "add comment" button. It's confusing to tell people "no you can't comment here" if they can't see where they can comment in the first place...
I have a function that is changing the value of an input hidden tag. I have registered a listener that listens to this input("change" event). But since the value of the input is being changed programmatically (not by the user intervention), the handler is never executed. But I want the handler to...
On SO, at least, there are more than 600 questions/answers to review. I figure that no-one is going to plough their way through all 600, so maybe a default 'random' sort order would be a good idea, so that we get more eyes on more posts.
Just a thought.
