what exactly is a full stack developer/engineer?

You know for sure that you're a full stack developer when you are THE ONLY developer.

user202362
@Quill Full-Stack Web Developer
 
A full stack developer should generally be equipped to deal with all aspects of the developer process, for example a full stack web developer should have no problems designing a page, writing the frontend code, doing the backend code, handling the servers etc
 
user202362

comes in the first category
 
if you're only able to do CSS, then you're probably not a full stack developer
 
Or a web developer.
More like a designer.

Narawa GamesAutoDownVote.SE is a browser extension that enables you to quickly down-vote every votable Stack Exchange post on the page with a single click.

user315433
The most recent entry is "A little illustration for a team collaboration page."
 
No. Downvoting every post isn't bannable and moderators don't have tools to allow them to know, as it should be. Dowvoting all posts is not serial downvoting. There is nothing wrong with the app staying, voting on it is enough. — bjb568 is not a pebble 27 secs ago

@Telkitty horror movies always have dim lights.
 
user202362
I know ...
 
@ShadowWizard I dunno ...
 
 
> Dark/low level lighting – Low level lighting is very often used in horror films to create a creepy mysteriousatmosphere, as darkness is usually associated with evil.
Darkness also makes people feelmore vulnerable and threatened as they are unable to see as much and people fear the unseen and unknown. They also use many shadows.Use of low level lighting in our film opening- -We are filming most of our opening in the woods so the shade from the trees will make the lighting fairly low. - We are also going to use dark lighting in the flashbacks of Hannah, to add a dark and evil atmosphere.

@TIPS wtf is with this whole randomly-replacing-he-with-she thing? Apart from being meaningless and irritating, here she is used twice to refer to actual males which are sketched. If this is what gender equality means, it's a trivial pursuit not worth my consideration.

A company secretary is a senior position in a private sector company or public sector organisation, normally in the form of a managerial position or above. In large American and Canadian publicly listed corporations, a company secretary is typically named a corporate secretary or secretary. The company secretary is responsible for the efficient administration of a company, particularly with regard to ensuring compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements and for ensuring that decisions of the board of directors are implemented. Despite the name, the role is not a clerical or secretarial...

Hola amigos.
 
Hello
 
5:43 PM
Como estan ustedes hoy?
 
I'm fine... but I don't speak (much) Spanish. How are you?
 
Muy bien!
 
Good to hear. Hm, Tavern's quite tonight.
 
Pareto: half of my rep comes from my top 10 answers (of 600 I've made). I wonder what that says about me.
 
Depends on how long you've been around, I think.
The older, more basic questions are seen the most... both because they're old and because they're basic.
 
5:51 PM
I've been active about 2.5 years?
 
Then I guess you just had a few really popular answers.
 
But I give very thorough treatments of the topics.
 
That helps.
 
I tend to edit my answers more frequently when they come to my attention.
Virtuous cycle for some, bad for others.
 
Having a look at your answers on SO. It's fun that you could answer the age-old question about yield in Python, when there were already so many answers, and yet get a very high score.
I guess being torough is the only way to make one's answer stand out in those cases.
 
5:56 PM
I also provide a critique of the top answer. I'm rather critical of it.
 
Wow... that top answer is still from one of the lucky ones who were on board early... over 7000 votes!
 
Big attention, probably a lot of links to it too.
Answers that are accepted tend to gather the most upvotes (regardless of quality). My top 2 answers didn't get nearly as many upvotes until they were "accepted" by the OP.
 
Does accepting boost a question to the front page, like editing does?
 
Nope.
 
That means you should probably mentally discount accepted answers by some amount if you want to mentally rank them.
 
6:03 PM
I'd argue that accepting an asnwer should bump a question to the front page. Except the front page is already a pandemonium.
 
@SmokeDetector k
@SmokeDetector why
 
@S.L.Barth Post - Offensive keyword: shit
 
I don't watch the front page.

I've got some favorite tags and ignored tags to order the front page.
 
6:10 PM
I've kinda got an A/B test on terse but complete answers versus longer, more comprehensive/verbose answers.
The longer answer's score wins by 10:1.
 
Funny. You'd expect the quick and short answer to win out.
 
It doesn't.
I think the effect is that readers that read more have more time to think, "Have I upvoted this yet?"
Sometimes I get to just reading answers without voting. Kind-of a waste not to vote.
 
Depends... some answers deserve an upvote or a downvote. Others are just "meh".
 
The way I see it, my upvote means "this is worth reading" and the opposite for my downvote.

I just knew that 'cretin' is an offensive word (really)

Q: Generate NSDate from, day, month and year

minimalpopI'm trying to generate a NSDate from a month day and year (all in integer format). Right now my attempt is such: NSCalendar *calendar = [NSCalendar currentCalendar]; NSDateComponents *components = [[NSDateComponents alloc] init]; NSNumber *day = [dataSource valueForKey:@"day"]; NSNumber *month ...

@rene You know .net, right? What is your opinion on stackoverflow.com/questions/13089489/…?
 
damn oxford commas
 
that is a rather broad question.
i can explain how to use section but why is rather subjective.
some people never use it.
 
It seems like this explains it well though:
> @section is for defining a content are override from a shared view. Basically, it is a way for you to adjust your shared view (similar to a Master Page in Web Forms).
@Shog9 Obviously that's why 29 people upvoted a question that ended up being a typo...
 
clearly
"oooh, a superfluous comma, how cultured - must show respect!"
In all seriousness though, it's almost certainly scored as such because of the title
Folks google the title, find the question, steal the code, and then fix the typo.

@hichris123 yeah, that's "what they do", it's not "why you use them"
reasons to use them are things like "I want to be able to inject script or CSS at random places" or "I want to partition my pages into multiple content areas" or whatever
 
@hichris123 maybe a bit broad but I don't think I would have closed it.

@KutuluMike Hmm yeah that bit is a bit open ended.

Q: I should be allowed to answer closed questions

BorodinToo many times I have read a question and gone away to write and test a solution, only to come back to find that the question has been suspended, usually because it is unclear what you're asking or too broad The problem is often that the post has been made by a non-native English speaker, so I w...

 
@hichris123 LOL
 
> Given Stack Overflow's renowned failure to properly resurrect old posts, even if the question is changed beyond all recognition
That assessment is kinda true. There are several old posts that I've looked through yesterday and today that either shouldn't have been closed, or were edited after they were closed but the task was thrown out of the Reopen Votes queue.
 
The answer from Shog9 makes me again aware that I'm not active enough to get a gold badge ...
@hichris123 In SOCVR we have Yam that for our cv-pls keeps tracks of edits so we can re-open if warranted
 
@rene Reminds me that I still need to get to 10k...
 
you work on that ...
 
8:29 PM
@rene Unfortunately I've seen quite a few [cv-pls]s that shouldn't be closed in the first place...
 
sure, not everyone has the same idea about what is salvageable and what not
 
But then they end up closed. :/
 
The same happens in the CVQ. In the SOCVR we have the option to challenge cv-pls that are not right. At least, that is the idea ...
Reality is something else ...

Yeah... I think your judgement is usually correct @rene but I'm afraid when you have a group like that... it's really hard to control.
 
Yeah, I would love to have some more people in there that want to help the less experienced a bit
 
Less experienced... as in new users or people new to the room?
 
People new to moderation
The hardest part is to let them not use their powers ;)
As a mod yourself you know, right?
 
Yeah. It's especially hard because there are no hard rules, you just play loose and go with your gut.
 
@hichris123 Exactly, so you have to be flexible based on context
 
8:56 PM
But how can you teach that? It's more of a personal opinion than anything really.
 
Leading by example would work, if the group accepts you as a leader that is ...
 
Everyone looks up to a flower. :)
 
I don't think that is true but for others, sure.

I refuse to mod-flag a comment to explain why something is obsolete. Or are comment flags also handled in isolation without context?
