@Bart Sorry, it won't happen again ...
 
Ugh, chat.SO is a mess.
 
@Bart Someone needs to share this golden advice with those MSO users, even though it was posted w.r.t another user, it applies to the current case as well.
 
gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/199037/… Should I flag "unclear" on this question?
 
@Sompuperoo Am I evil? :(
 
I'd say that the information currently provided is sufficient @InfiniteSnowflakes. There isn't really anything we could do with more information anyway except fuel a fire for a longer period of time. I like the current approach of "this is between us, and you can always come back". And of course the author can release all information anyway should he wish to do so.
 
4:00 PM
@Bart if the user wants to do it publicly they usually give more info
 
And everyone can you check out this question by me and reopen it I really need an answer. Please. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/246425/… Please. I'm begging you. Please.
 
@Bart I agree
 
@ArceusMaster0493 seems reasonably clear. I can't say if it's on-topic for the site though.
 
Oct 26 '14 at 18:58, by Shog9
I've certainly had occasion to talk about the details of such things publicly before. For instance, when someone gets suspended and then goes to meta to misrepresent what happened and try to stir up trouble.
 
@Bart Yep because I edited.
 
4:02 PM
Jul 10 '14 at 18:31, by Shog9
But for the record - because he's stating this stuff publicly - I and several other members of the community team have invested a considerable amount of time and effort into investigating these reports of voting fraud, taken action where it was warranted, and responded honestly when there was no evidence. We're quite frankly sick of him crying wolf and refusing to believe any words that are not coming from inside his own head.
 
@Bart Care to vote reopen please?
 
@ArceusMaster0493 I was talking about your Gaming SE question
 
@Bart Oh.
@Bart So I vote "off-topic"
 
If that is correct, go ahead. I wouldn't know
 
I remember that questions about anything but gameplay in gaming.se is off topic (that includes lore)

Glad to hear it. Just had a look at your profile here... didn't know we had a CV room.
 
Nov 14 '14 at 3:07, by cVplZ
@AndrewT. closevotes room is bleh, the owner is out of control
 
@S.L.Barth It was frozen, recently unfrozen. Would had preferred for it to kept in the state though.
 
@Sompuperoo Really? Well, I won't judge until I've looked at a few of the CV suggestions. SO generally doesn't lack questions that need closing though....
@Unihedro I see. Well, I guess if people feel like cleaning up bad questions, the CV queue is big enough....
 
4:56 PM
@S.L.Barth No, the point is that the CV room was basically four walls with a cat yelling OFF TOPIC OFF TOPIC.
 
Was the cat correct at least?
 
It may be constructive, since the posts were pre-reviewed before you click on it, but it isn't practically interesting to be in.
 
I've no idea.
 
I thought so, but it got upvoted
 
4:59 PM
Upvote? Seriously?
 
.... and answered through comments
 
@JanDvorak No, the only correct ones posted in that room come from Frank. Cat ones can be safely ignored.
 
...Hm, "I would like to share" sounds like the OP wanted to do a self-answer.
 
@JanDvorak Oh, I wasn't answering whether it was LQ, I was answering "was the cat correct as least".

Q: How large is the no flight zone while a game of Quidditch is taking place?

Which is annoying and not productive.
I'm thinking a post notice or something would be good.
 
Use your newfound rep on the site and downvote everyone who posted stuff about scratch. :P
 
Start a bounty (magnet for more crap answers)
 
@bjb568 so, your question is very broad. That may be what you want, but it's almost impossible to keep folks from writing top-of-their-head responses, since... Well, pretty much anyone will have something that's relevant. Even if they don't have kids. Or know anything about programming, or education.
 
8:28 PM
@anorton That gives -2s (vs +5) and most have at least 2 upvotes already.
 
Hmph.
 
The correct is answer is the comment with the 20 votes btw
 
Adding a notice or ending paragraph to the effect of "please don't answer this even though you can unless you can answer it in a way that's really good" isn't likely to have much effect; folks are already writing their answers in their heads by the time they read it.
 
Sigh…
 
Instead, step back and focus on the specific problem you're trying to solve:
Your kid wants to learn something that you don't have direct experience with yourself.
The fact that it's programming is relevant, but not really the core aspect of the question.
 
8:30 PM
Hmph, ok.
 
Oh, and a short piece of advice from my own journey: buy a good college textbook and work through it--do every problem in the exercise sections. I learned Java by going through Liang's Introduction to Java Programming (complete edition). Don't learn only from online snippets, as you're bound to learn bad practices.
 
@anorton dup of dup of dup of dup of dup of one of the first 3 answers already there
 
:P
 
@rene The kid about whom the post has been written is bjb himself. If he follows that 20+ comment, he should stop programming ;)
 
that gives all kind of benefits, don't you think?
 
8:32 PM
I learned C by reading the Doom editor source (which was nominally Objective-C, but no matter). I tried to teach a kid programming once by having him work through a textbook, and found... It was really boring, for both of us. The equivalent of learning to read by reading those old Dick & Jane books. You gotta have something that grabs your interest.
 
I've determined that if I try to edit the question, it'll be get worse. I don't know anything about parenting or education or any of that.
At least I got a hat for that question.
 
@rene How Dutch :D
 
@bjb568 Look, the primary trap you want to avoid here is asking an Agony Aunt question - "here's my situation, what should I do?"
 
watch it, Duck! ;)
 
@Shog9 That's like… 95% of parenting questions
 
8:35 PM
Everyone loves to be the backseat driver in someone else's life. You don't want that though. You want information - experiences, references - that'll help you be a better driver.
 
My mind is having trouble thinking of caring for the rascal know as past me…
:eek:
Attempting to parent drives people insane.
 
So the scenario you're in... you're sitting there with a bunch of resources, a kid with a ton of time and enthusiasm, internet access, probably some small amount of disposable income...?
 
@bjb568 a bit more of context can help to weed out some answers, ie: do you have experience programing, is your son motivated to learn programing, for what reason, do he know something or just starting out, do he likes technical stuff, is curious, etc.
 
That's a good start. but that's not a question. That's just a scenario.
What are you trying to do?
I mean, you could just do nothing
Your kid will teach himself
 
Love yourself the way you are, forgive your past self of all stupidities, and stop carrying that burden on your back @bjb.
 
8:38 PM
^ exactly
 
Presumably you're concerned he won't learn the right thing, or will get discouraged, or that you're inadvertently depriving him of something that'd make his efforts much more productive...
Figure out which of those is true, then focus on that. Elaborate on what you've already done, where you'd like to end up, etc.
 
@bjb568 the reason why some people don't want to be parents... there's no manpage for it
 
@Braiam I do have all of that…
@Shog9 ok
Feels so unnatural to have to load a page to edit.
Editing inline is so much smoother.
Of course it'd be really smooth with Vanilla JS…

At least his was original.
