The hyphens do that. You need an empty line to produce an hbreak

Why would the hyphens do that...?

@JasonC because markdown?

It's an underline

If it's an underline why does it make the text bigger? And who would write an underline by putting hyphens on the following line? Still confused.

H1:

H2:

What do you guys know that I don't know??

also, unclear what you don't know

Also, lacks minimal understanding of the problem being solved.

I guess what I don't know is, why would "Text + \n + ----- == H1"
Ahhhhh

clarify?

Yeah, setext section header makes sense.

meh, I got it backwards....
btw, for a moment I read "Yeah, sexist section header makes sense."... must be all the sexist talk

user259867
Every time I saw underline making a header on SE, it wasn't author's intent.

Nanogalaxy Q tech !

Proposed Q&A site for those who wants to know more about Technology and Latest Smartphones.

Currently in definition.

First proposal I've seen with a punctuation mark. I also don't see how the name and description match up.

@Jamal Y'all should just leave it. I sent a warning email to the presumed instructor of that course with a copy of the code from the posted answer and a link. The project's past due anyways.

@Jamal that thing looks like a SPAM proposal

> How do I make a Car game with high gravity in Blender ?
that looks like a legit question

I'm thinking "legit but horribly misguided"

I didn't comment about the quality of the question ;)

Better off just naming it "Technology and Latest Smartphones !"

9:26 PM
! "Technology and Latest Smartphones ! - gotta have symmetry

"Technology and Latest Smartphones ???"

Use an inverted bang then

And then each question can sound like a proposal name.

@AnnaLear No way legit. NanoGalaxy is some crappy tech blog and the guy that created that proposal, Nived Kannada, owns that company and runs that blog.

So it really is a spam proposal. I somehow thought it was some kind of smartphone.

definitely stinks

TIL you could flag sites as spam; flagged

Does the spam system work the same on Area 51 (six community flags deletes a proposal)?

I solved the case for the non-homogenous constant coefficients case and I wondered if there is a way to find a general solution to a non-constant coefficient case. I don't know how to approach this at all, the substitution $y(x)=\frac{\log (v(x))}{r(x)}$ gets problematic immediately.

I see this answer as an attempt to grab the bounty, asking for a clarification in an answer last minutes before the bounty ends. What should I do?

I removed @JasonC's discussion post, since apparently those don't get removed as well.

user259867
@UserX Wrong chat window? Looks like a question for Math chat room.

@UserX Unless that picks up a couple upvotes, nothing. There will be no bounty awarded.

@JasonC That gives me an idea! creates an *NSYNC proposal

@Rafflesiaarnoldii it's a technical matter

9:36 PM
@Jamal flags as offensive

@Jamal flags as loltastically offensive

@UserX Flagging it for a mod was the right call.

@AnnaLear I thought the bounty gets autoawarded to a non-negative score answer if there exists no other answer by the end of 7 days

user259867
Okay, the technical answer is that the poster may be motivated by bounty, but unless the answer gets score of 2 or higher, there will be no auto-award.

@UserX Hrm. I forget exactly how it works... I think we only auto-award half the bounty to an answer with 2+ votes, but I could be wrong. The rules have grown over the years. Don't quite have time to dig right now, but I removed that answer.

9:37 PM
@AnnaLear yea but I don't know if it would be answered in time, and I prefer me losing 50 points than someone not worth them getting them. Anyway, no upvotes so no fears, thanks for clarifying that out for me.

user259867
@UserX math.stackexchange.com/help/bounty <-- last section, "how is a bounty awarded"

user259867
Grr, still no anchor links in help center.

@UserX There's also the factor Rafflesia arnoldii mentioned a couple lines up, which reduces the risk a little.

@Rafflesiaarnoldii I don't trust the bounty system. My bounty in Physics SE was awarded to a person I never clicked and there was a 20+ votes answer much better than the one who got it

user259867
@UserX "the highest voted answer created after the bounty started with a minimum score of 2". Read the rules carefully.

9:41 PM
@UserX You should have awarded the bounty instead of letting the system do it.

@Andy I wanted to keep the attention as much as possible.

@UserX That's the risk you take then. :)

You know what they say about assumptions...

Well problem solved I guess.

What happens if the documentation states that the first step is to make an ass out of Uma Thurman?

@JasonC If your name is Bill, you're screwed.

Is mathoverflow in the SE network?

@UserX Yes
It's even got a cute little SE logo in the status bar.

Then why can't posts be migrated between the sites?

@UserX they can...
just not by everyday users..
actually mods can migrate as long as the post is not older than 60 days.

It says "y"

@JasonC it says and for me.

@Frank Yeah, that's what I said. It says "y".
(That was supposed to be funny.) But really; maybe something auto-translated it from spanish? Do you have anything that does that in chat?

What does this say:
y?

That's totally weird.

@JasonC 'There is there is a quiz' is roughly what it would translate to.

@JasonC I just typed 'crap' into google. Ugh! that was a mistake...

@hichris123 actually: this is a quiz

10:15 PM
@hichris123 Lol, I typed "this is a test".

@Braiam blames it on my spanish teachers ;)

@hichris123 meh, spanish is easy

Andou mean easand.

10:17 PM
@Braiam Does test translate into anything other than examencito (too lazy to check spelling on that)? i.e. would 'I am taking a test' and 'This is a test' use examencito?

@Frank Andeah that's weird, I totalland tandped "and".

@JasonC Ha!

@hichris123 the heck? "examencito" is just a diminutive of "examen" which translate to "little test", so no

(different teachers use different words though. I guess a small test to one is a regular test to another. ;p)

Depends on the size of the teacher, really.

10:20 PM
most words ending with -cito or -ito are just diminutive (little X), -zote, -sote, -ote are aumentative (big X)

@JasonC No I'm not…

@Braiam huh, ok.

Never heard of it. Now that we have a successful History of S&M site, there may be a History of Computers or some such...

Pong (marketed as PONG) is one of the earliest arcade video games; it is a tennis sports game featuring simple two-dimensional graphics. While other arcade video games such as Computer Space came before it, Pong was one of the first video games to reach mainstream popularity. The aim is to defeat an opponent in a simulated table-tennis game by earning a higher score. The game was originally manufactured by Atari Incorporated (Atari), who released it in 1972. Allan Alcorn created Pong as a training exercise assigned to him by Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell. Bushnell based the idea on an electronic...

@Frank No I totally have never heard of that.
Is that some kind of dance move?

@JasonC :)
so fun... not

Man, there was a period in the early 90's where original arcade consoles were kinda easy to get. People were dumping them but they weren't really like, super duper collectible yet.
Now it's so rare to find an original, and they're \$.
Same with pinball machines.

@JasonC Now I've had a thought. If I post a question, and put a phone number in the title, so that Smokey picks it up, and also put '@JasonC' in the title, will that ping you?
I mean, when Smokey posts it here?

@Frank I imagine it would. It's just a normal chat message. Not really related but I think it also pings people if their name is in the text of a one-box. I dunno.

@JasonC I wish I could test it...

I'll test it. They're gonna get mad at me on mso, but hold on.

Anything?

@JasonC No

Of course not.

@bjb568 You say that; but the last time "@JasonC" was in a one-box, I did see it highlighted.

11:38 PM
It's highlighted, but didn't notify me.

I just wasn't sure if it made a sound.

@JasonC No, no sound.

Pings are also a red circle thing next to the posting box @JasonC @Frank

@bjb568 Those have never appeared consistently for me, though.

@bjb568 I know, the notification that I didn't get.

11:39 PM

Oh THOSE circles. Yeah.

Yeah.

@JasonC they appear for me whenever the sound goes off.

The inbox notifications aren't consistent though. (That's what I thought you meant at first.)

Those appear after a while of not responding.

11:40 PM
Users with not enough rep to chat here could send someone here a message through Smokey, if they wanted to. I should create a sock just to try it out.
@JasonC Yeah, if you are gone for long enough without clicking/replying to the red notifications in chat, it'll go to the inbox.

@JasonC that was fixed

Which is why I hate nbeing pinged after I say 'cya'.

We could test the smokedetector title ping but I'm kinda 99.999999999999% sure that one will work. Do pings in @Frank backticks work?
