Q: How to make a document occupy more pages?

yo'As opposed to this question: Squeezing scientific paper to fit within page limits, I would like to find as many ways to make a document become longer without adding any real text. The motivation for this is that for example a mathematical thesis is usually very thin and it might not look good. T...

@hichris123 Yep. \baselineskip7mm and \documentclass[12pt]{..} would be the first things to try.

beautiful
 
@Fundamental I have to use 12 pt font & Times New Roman, single spaced.
 
TNR?!
 
Yup.
 
what are you thinking you are using? Word 97?
 
12:17 AM
It's like the font of every educational paper. :/
 
user259867
I never used Times New Roman in LaTeX... stayed with default Computer Modern for ~10 years, before mostly switching to Palatino (\usepackage{mathpazo}).
 
I personally don't like CM

Q: What is this squeak in my Dodge Ram 1500, and how can I fix it?

J. MusserVehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 laramie slt, with extended cab. 212k miles on the engine, all original under the hood except for a steering box and steering pump (put in in the fall of 2014).

@SmokeDetector if you're still experiencing symptoms of hats withdraw, don't worry, it's perfectly normal to experience these symptoms for 6-8 weeks
 
@Shog9 Wait, so how does he spell Undo then? Redo?

@hichris123 hey, sometimes you have to go through a lot of trouble to set new star records.
 
@Undo Right, but it seems some might be going... supernova on you. :P
 
@hichris123 So, @Undo is Black Hat... that explains many things, not everything but many
 
... I don't think our rainwater system can handle this much water coming out of the sky.
 
Y'know, I realized I never got this on the starwall, so...

Is this not so good?
 
wonders what the question was
 
12:46 AM
... I got a low-quality meta post in my honor.
 
@Undo Hey, you can't beat lorem ipsum.
 
@SuperScript IMO it's fine
@hichris123 Yeah you can
 
Has this already been asked on MSO, or should I ask?
 
@Undo Okay, yeah, Flack Overstow is pretty funny.
 
@SuperScript if that one liner solves the issue, that is fine. But I wouldn't leave a guess answer like that. Also, if you read any other answers that come in, and want to use what they said in their answer, make sure to credit them. Otherwise it will look very shady and would hopefully lead to account suspension.

Yeah. I see ~100 of that every day. Already downclosed.
 
o_O
 
3:09 AM
@Fundamental Downclosed. That's an interesting verb.
 
@Fundamental "Downclosed" seems to roll off the tongue better than downclosevote.
 
@Doorknob better that upreopened
 
user259867
Let's see: so far I cast 15498 downvotes and 9381 closevotes. But moving forward, downvotes grow by 40/day while closevotes by 50/day. So... in 611 days the two totals should be about equal, around 40000.
 
Unless you go on vacation
 
user259867
To go on vacation, I'd need to write a downclosing bot first.
 
3:17 AM
lol
that would be complicated
 
@Frank no actually, you just need a regex
 
No it wouldn't. Just automatically cast closevotes and downvotes on 50% of all new questions on math.SE.
 
@Braiam but it would have to choose legit questions/answers

user259867
@Frank You increased browser zoom... eyesight going?
 
they shut relationships down.. and arduino.. I'm sure there is/was something between that.
OSes maybe? Something like that.
 
user259867
That was ages ago. OS sounds closer to now.
 
I have trouble keeping up with my own site, much less the network ;P
 
user259867
But that was private beta. Actually, I think Home Automation was the most recent private beta shut down.
 
user259867

But public... been a while.
 
ahh, yes. That sounds right.
Oh you asked public.. facepalm.
Wow.
Startups?

hm, that's about 12:00 here.

Fundamental is the ultimate SE knowledge engine
 
yeah, I don't think 19:00 is accurate
Puzzling, for example, launched at around 20:30 IIRC
 
And Data Science was an hour or two later than that.
huh, exactly 19:00. well then.
 
maybe it goes live after it actually "starts"?
Or maybe you're time is just off :P

Just make a bot, @Doorknob. That's what a programmer would do!
 
@hichris123 I tried. CAPTCHAs :(
(I literally made a bot that loads up the A51 page, clicks the "visit" button, creates an account, and submits the /questions/ask form)
 
4:06 AM
... how often were you hitting the site? o.o
 
it was only ~5 page loads per run. I guess SE is really good at detecting bots
 
I never encounter SE CAPTCHA's, except for on SEDE.
 
Yup, me too
 
@Doorknob Were they all in rapid succession? How often was a run?
 
@hichris123 I only added a sleep between them after about 5 test runs, so that might have been part of the problem. I only tested about 10 times, and each test had about 4 page loads.
maybe I should just try it now and see if it works.
