a 40 years old man was promoted as the new food and beverage director. he stared being a wait staff and had worked for the company for 5 years. the job specification for the food and beverage manager does not suit his qualifications. the job specification is "a manager should be a graduate of BSH...
Can't comment, so:
"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." -- Confucius. (Yes, really. It's the one legitimate K'ung Fu-tzu quote I know.)
It's true for everyone.
It's not true for everyone. Different people learn in different ways.
and if 15-20ker stumbles upon this question, consider protecting it: besides above crap it managed to collect two answers scored -4 and one at -5, that's a bit too much garbage (thanks to hot list)
What a hot question! I cant stop myself from answering it.
I would notice that for me as for your HR-manager or your director your behavior and your reactions are signals of what type of worker you are. Can I rely at you? Are you a good team-player?
But at the same time if I knew you can say ...
...And fun starts. Amount of views and contribution of newcomers from other sites / tags much increases, along with the risk of things getting out of control.
You know, everyone would want to answer a question, but for community regulars, this natural desire is balanced by established norms. Regulars understand what kind answers are good and likely to bring upvotes and they avoid posting garbage that usually gets downvoted: this sort of sets the quality norm.
But wait, the question is now on top, it attracts a lot of visitors whose desire to answer is not balanced by local community norms…
I'm a consultant who's in the middle of a very significant project that would be nearly impossible to handover to another team member without putting the deadline at significant risk.
On Monday, I"m resigning. I'm in a position where I can provide extra notice period to my employer to allow the ...
@gnat I try to wait to protect until there are at least two answers going on the downvote/deletion train and this one only has one so far. I should create a meta proposal about this, i've downvoted/protected so many questions recently
Keep in mind that this is not necessarily any different than most situations for most at-will employees, at least in the USA. Though you're going to run into a complicated situation of "are you being fired?" types of things too and things may get more complicated. — enderland2 hours ago
@gnat I don't want to lose this ability at all, I want to alwyas have a "this is why I protected the question" response - always. having multiple delete vote worthy answers from low rep users nearly guarantees this
As Anna Lear points out in another question, proactively protecting questions is generally a bad idea.
I generally keep an eye on Hacker News and other programmer sites for when our questions hit the front page. We as moderators try to keep an eye on these questions and actively moderate the bad...
@dylanribb yeah something like that. I was talking to a coworker, I think I'll fully realize it's Friday when it's like 10pm tonight and I realize I don't have to set an alarm for tomorrow - "oh I guess it's Friday!"
We graduated on February 20th which was two weeks ago. And that is awesome. But due to the loss of privilege, we are working the moderators to the bones with our flags and general cleanup.
While we all know that our moderators can clear Not An Answer flags with a single click, we may want to thi...
@Chad my 10K experience at Programmers is that when there are mods around, cleanup goes fairly smooth. Being able to see deleted posts, available delete votes and grayed out 20K-grade votes in mod tools equips one for a pretty efficient flagging...
@Chad won't work. I gave it a lot of thought (this idea was raised since last mod elections at Programmers, more than a year ago, and we chatted it several times at Whiteboard). As of now, I'm rather firmly convinced I'll be of more help to community as a regular user / flagger than as a moderator
if memory serves turning point was when Manishearth mentioned how it was at Physics.SE, they've got two most active flaggers to moderators and net result turned out not very positive
not that there was much harm, but there was less clanup
@Chad then you better consider abstaining of nominating. Moderators mostly act on others flags. When someone else does that, there's two serving community: you and moderator. When you're the mod, there's one... less than one actually since part of the time you invested into flagging before, will be wasted on handling others flags
Flow is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does. Proposed by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, this positive psychology concept has been widely referenced across a variety of fields.
According to Csikszentmihalyi, flow is completely focused motivation. It is a single-minded immersion and represents perhaps the ultimate experience in harnessing the emotions in the service of perform...
You should listen to your boss, because you're not paid to tell the boss what to do.
Just make sure that every one knows what your feelings/advice is before starting to work on it, so your colleges wont blame you for anything if something goes wrong.
Can you imagine if the people responsible fo...
I edited this, but I still want to frag/frak this answer
I can't think on a edit that could make this salvagable
and this kind of things makes my justice sensor goes crazy
We usually start looking into running elections about 30 days after a site graduates. Y'know, give it some nice foot room when they stew with their new design and privileges first, let people get comfortable and adjusted to the new reign. Exact dates may vary as we always start elections on Monda...
