anything wrong with my answer?
A: Restart a GIF animation when you click on a text link

cybermonkeyYou need to assign an id to your link (a), let's use the id aniclk for this example. Replace <a href="#">this</a> with this: <a id="aniclk" href="#">this</a> Notice the id="aniclk". You'll want to change your Javascript to this: $(function(){ var image = new Image(); image.src ='...

I can't see why it would be DV'd

A: Excel VBA Getopen file dialog in Mac/Apple

Thiru SelvamI found the answer - No issues guys thanks for your contribution

I... you're welcome?
Maybe SO should disable answers. Rubber-duck debugging is good enough.
I think so. Certainly not a question.
Please don't add "thanks" as answers. Invest some time in the site and you will gain sufficient privileges to upvote answers you like, which is the Stack Overflow way of saying thank you. — cybermonkey 10 secs ago

@NormalHuman gone
@cybermonkey Not sure that the template applied, as there is nothing for the OP to upvote.

scope blocking is coming up in JavaScript Harmony. — user1637281 Jun 10 '13 at 16:16
S/he didn't live to see the day, unfortunately.
How to look for an edit I've done in the past?
@U̶n̶i̶h̶e̶d̶r̶o̶n̶ suggested? or normal? SEDE?
@bummi Oh, that would be interesting...

@bjb568 Works fine on Chrome 44, something's wrong your end
Not so sure. One can send email and chat messages, not people. People do decide where to go and what to do there.
probably blocking Javascript or JQuery
Looks as if the question can be closed now: stackoverflow.com/a/31707155/1699210

7:53 PM
Just out of the curiosity how is a user with rep below 50 able to comment (which would seem to be useful in this case without the additional answer):stackoverflow.com/a/31709693/1699210
That's weird
@bummi Looks like it was automatically converted
But it wasn't. The answer would be deleted and there'd be something in the rev history
Oh wait
they might have tried posting a different one that did get converted
@Undo mhhh I can't see anything other there
I know
7:57 PM
Automatic conversion leaves no trace because no actual answer is created: the text entered by user gets redirected to a comment.
I think the system throws it directly into a comment without making a deleted answer
^ that
Ok, thanks, that's new for me
This can be abused by leaving comments wherever: just put "see this: <random SO link>" as an answer, get it converted, then rewrite your comment to be whatever you want to say.
You don't even need a registered account for that.
And there will be no trace in web sockets.
7:59 PM
Shh, don't let the spammers know...
Looks like Nicael should report it :)
It's known, including to SE employees.
I'm not actually worried about abuse; spammers aren't that knowledgeable yet.
8:02 PM
And if it becomes an issue, that loophole will be closed.
@NormalHuman interesting, thanks, though I think it's ... mhmmm ... dangerous
I removed the answer just in case. :)
@NormalHuman :) so I bookmarked this: meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/9203/…
Now, if one made a userscript to automate the process: add custom textarea under question, where the text of comment is entered, and then the rest is done automatically...
that probably would be going too far.
8:09 PM
@NormalHuman I think you can undelete it ... there are enough other posts showing the hole

@bjb568 I can send Amazon less money for the same thing
Minus the UI stuff, but I don't need that
But... unlike GitHub, Amazon is evil
Or you use Bitbucket

Q: Why does this script not work on imported models

Vin BreauI've created a movement script that checks to see if an object is grounded, and if so, moves the object based on user input. When I attach it to an object I create in Unity, it works.

Ah, Chrome update fixed it

Jamal's not a mod here

[ SmokeDetector ] Repeating words in body: tring to convert a simple hashtable to html powershell by ANeed4Help on stackoverflow.com
@NormalHuman actually answers converted to comments appear in the revision history and is visible for 10kers as "converted to comment"
@Braiam That's manual conversions (by a mod), not automatic conversions.
Automatic conversion is really redirection of input.
ohhh.... what the heck, that's a hole waiting for potential abuse....
We are aware of the http://serverfault.com HTTPS certificate issue and are processing a fix with @CloudFlare now.
10:18 PM
I'm not even sure if this is funny or not... for now I would say 'yes'
A fresh certificate has been issued for https://serverfault.com/ We will continue to track down the auto-renewal issue with @CloudFlare.
TIL: for autoconversion you don't need to link to another post; putting a link to the very question you're posting under works.
Also, one of Beer.se users may be a little confused by a notification.
Now it's certainly doable as a userscript. I'm on it.
Nice things must not be allowed to be had.

I can't help but notice yesterday's batch of questions were 1. terrible, and 2. asked by the same user
and their profile explains
11:35 PM
Luckily for everyone, the CAPTCHA triggered by automatic submission of answers messes up the flow of my primitive script comments without 50 rep. Could be solved, but I got bored of it.
People lamenting the poor experience of new users should spend more time reading posts like these.
@NormalHuman I'm pretty sure you have to do more than just including a random line to apply a license.
@U̶n̶i̶h̶e̶d̶r̶o̶n̶ Probably, but in the spirit of the license I don't give ... much thought to it.
At least add a link.

@NormalHuman cl.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.appendChild(tf);
I like it.
Yes, that's my style.
> As long as your intention is clear, you can place your license information wherever you like. Some projects only include a descriptive line in the project's README (e.g., "This project is licensed under the terms of the MIT license."). However, to avoid any potential ambiguity, it's best to include the license file with your project as well. help.github.com/articles/open-source-licensing
Also, a result of SE using tables for comment layout.
This question needs to be closed. Also the OP's username made my heart pressure rise. stackoverflow.com/questions/11356804/…
