Q: How do you navigate the invisible maze in the desert?

GnomeSliceOne of the earliest reachable puzzles in Ramble Planet is a maze in the desert, where the walls are invisible. The problem is, the path you can take through the maze appears to change based on which direction you take at certain junctions, so it's not very easy to map out the terrain, since it...

@NormalHuman Yes, I'm also looking at the same post
I already added a comment.
That user is spamming promoting all over the internet...
TIL: don't go to meta while drunk
Agreed. It usually causes one to post programming questions, too.
I finally got a nice idea while editing a comment, when I was re-reading it, I got no freaking idea what I meant
@Jamal Is this kind of too-broadish
or perhaps too-crappish?
1:26 AM
I'm simply curious about Code Review... having a hard time imagining someone actually reading stuff like this, and answering...
It just has some noise, and not such a great title.
"How to make this better?" <wall of code>...
We prefer only to have the code's purpose, not questions or anything about suggestions, in titles. Every question would be asking the same thing if each question had to have a question.
@AndrewT. Maybe spam-flag then?
@NormalHuman I already spam flagged them for warning

"Want to search messages between 8am and 3pm?" Sure, just convert to epoch time, and you're done.

I think *repair.com is a good pattern already: while legitimate sites exist, they are rare (18 on SO, 10 on SU, 5 on DIY -- all time). This and the fact that reports are suppressed at 50+ rep -> very few fps.

Why exactly doesn't it SHOW you the declined flag with that message?
@bjb568 Thanks, del-voted from the queue.
@U̶n̶i̶h̶e̶d̶r̶o̶n̶ Because it could be several. And because there isn't much room in that message. And because the content of your flags (which can be sensitive) shouldn't pop up on your screen when you least expect it.
@NormalHuman No, I mean the link itself.

[ SmokeDetector ] Repeating characters in body: python-win32 Python Exe is not running on Windows 2003 by Jeremy on stackoverflow.com
It links me to the flag summary, which doesn't even cover the declined flag, I'd have to dig through to find it by myself, which is stupid considering a link is supposed to be relevant. It could at least bring me to a defined page where a first declined flag is seeked.
So one would have to develop it first, before linking to it.
And you know how user interface is developed around here.
@U̶n̶i̶h̶e̶d̶r̶o̶n̶ You need multiple declined flags before you get that notice (10% over the last week, I think)
@KevinBrown Those "multiple" are buried in hundreds of helpful flags so that doesn't really change much

Username checks are really ineffective except for offensive, rsorder and babyliss... Luckily not too many false positives either, but this particular regex is problematic .
3:00 PM
@KevinBrown Well, it is an issue because it makes me curious and I can't find it without going through too much effort that isn't worth (nothing I can do about declined flags).
This user's most recent posts are all copy pastes to another answer. I can't downvote all of them without triggering targetted voting: stackoverflow.com/users/1290329/user1290329?tab=answers I could use help on the low quality flags though.
@Andy flag?
Custom flags are designed for cases like that
@KevinBrown Why? There are 4-5 low quality flags. Mark them low quality and let them go through the queue. The mods aren't needed for that
Please don't post copies of this answer around. First of all it is link-only, which is not a good answer. Second of all, if that answer answers all these questions, make sure the questions aren't duplicates of a canonical source to begin with.

Q: Is it possible to horizontally center an image on Stack Exchange sites?

Ben SSince we can only use Markdown and a limited subset of HTML/CSS is it possible to center an image, or any block element for that matter, on the Stack Exchange sites?

Should DevDoodle support centering?
Maybe just of images?
Maybe change the ![]() to !>[]() for right, !=[]() for centering, !<[]() for left, and ![]() for regular?
Regular is left.
