Some wording we came up with in chat: Questions about reviewing or improving existing, working code and lacking a specific question statement are off-topic for Stack Overflow. You may be able to get help on Code Review. The basis of this wording is to build it around the same wording as the Super User close reason: Questions about general computing ...

Partly based on earlier proposal by EBrown in chat: Without specific programming questions this is off-topic for Stack Overflow. However if your code works as intended, you may get a review and evaluation of it at Code Review. Without **specific programming questions** this is off-topic for Stack Overflow. However if **your code works as intended**, you ...

I have already contacted SE regarding this concern, and this is the exact response I've received from Tim Post, an SE community manager (important points bolded by me): To the extent that it doesn't at all annoy others in chat, we tolerate it. Bots shouldn't send automatic greetings, say inappropriate things (or accept inappropriately named commands) ...

This is mostly just a misunderstanding in how the move to chat link works. It's not so simple as merely "lots of comments on a post". That comment chain was essentially one person leaving several messages in a row - but that's not something that triggers the link. The link appears when two people are having a conversation with each other. So, you ...

That's not a radio button you can ever select. If you edit the question, leave a comment or flag/vote-to-close, it will be selected automatically. It should've moved up automatically and luckily there's a bit of a workaround to make that happen. If you have completed your review and the upvote has registered but not moved the radiobutton to "I'm done&...

The text is ambiguous. Contrast the following two readings: Answer a, question with score of 1 or more. Answer a question, with score of 1 or more. However a "teacher" is normally the person who gives knowledge to others. As such; the second reading, where your answer is the subject, is the correct reading. You also got awarded for the second.

Note: the feature is still under development. This answer risks being out-of-date the moment I post it. For up-to-date information, see the MSE post "New onboarding for review queues". Is this a bug? Is this a new feature that everyone sees? It's a new feature that everyone sees first time they enter a specific queue. You'll see it (at least) ...

I was the last close vote on this question. Does that automatically flag this post when there are no comments? Yes, if a post is closed with no comments (deleted ones count as none), Community ♦ will raise this autoflag, but only while the site is in beta (it then gets disabled for good). This happens in any such situation, even when a ♦ moderator closes a ...

This is an answer that I may want to come back to.... I started it at noon, and now that I look at it, there's a spot above this box that says 'Your Answer'. And, occasionally, above that it pops up and says 'draft saved'...... yea, I typed the above text, and then closed the window, opened it up again, browsed to this post, and voila! there it is again....

No, it's not ok. Yes, it would be bad manners. On top of that, it would be quite an accomplishment to phrase a question such that it's on-topic and well-received both here and on Stack Overflow. Please see our FAQ on the differences. I understand your frustration. You have 3 questions on the site, some of them quite old, yet no answers. Perhaps our FAQ on ...

You can stop this in two ways. To get the code to run on all pages automatically you can convert these to userscript manager scripts. Disable the onclick events on the preview. $(".wmd-preview").off("click") Wrap the buttons' onclick events to stop propagation. $(".snippet button.s-btn, .snippet .popout-code") .each((_, e) ...

I think you should be focusing on closing questions, not migrating them. Stack Overflow has a very poor history of successful question migrations (especially to Programmers); that's why the process is intentionally difficult. A bot called Duga captures suggestions for migration in the question comments for both Programmers and Code Review; I will let the ...

Begin and end work outside of math mode The dollar signs are not the only delimiters that MathJax looks for. Because environments like \begin{align}...\end{align} also introduce math mode (they don't require other delimiters in LaTeX), MathJax also processes any \begin{xyz}...\end{xyz} pairs as math delimiters. So even though you haven't closed your dollar ...

While I would normally like the idea of reusing existing components, I'm not sure it's appropriate here. Code Review is different from Stack Overflow and our questions are constructed differently. How are Stack Overflow and Code Review different? Stack Overflow, like most Stack Exchange sites, favors questions with general application. So it wants ...
