oh my fucking god I remember making a copy of the final version of my fucking project, because I remember saying to myself "okay, now that I have my copy I can now fuck with it for presentation purposes"
@AshleyNunn You take that back right now! Martha was my favorite companion. =( I hate Amy because suddenly the show's no longer about the Doctor and his companion. It's about Amy and her companion (the Doctor).
Besides the unlockable DLC character Dampierre, there are quite a few "?" selections in the character menu left for additional characters.
Who are these characters and how do you unlock them? (Most likely spoilers in the answer, I know)
@agent86 Yah, I've looked at a lot of the flags that I can see as a 10K user and been like "Huh, I have no idea whether this shoud be enforced or not". So I'd rather leave that decision to someone else.
I hit 10K shortly after nominating for mod last time. It makes me feel like anyone running for mod should either be a mod from another site or a 10K user on some site, just so they have an idea of what they're in for.
I'd like to calculate or approximate the probability that I have to win a tournament where every player has a determined amount of chips.
Let's consider a scenario where there are 9 players and I know everyone's number of chips, to calculate my probability of winning I would do: my chips/(tot ch...
the other thing I figured would come up is what you commented on. good news is, I knew these were possibilities. bad news is, I've run out of future predictions. Let's hope there's not something else I've failed to plan for :)
This wouldn't be the first time Powerlord has had a vehement opposition to an election candidate. The only difference here being that he is actually very overt about who it was.
@badp The ultimate result is that he'd have the Meta post and still link to it on the nomination.
I don' t disagree that a Meta post is something that should happen for this. But I'm not entirely surprised about him (or, honestly, any user on any candidate) confronting them directly in the nomination comments. That's entirely what the comments are for.
@Ullallulloo I suppose. It does depend on how many questions you ask/answer - I know even for things I play and love and know a lot about and keep track of, I tend to forget that I asked/answered a question on it already.
I bought the add-on DLC, and Steam shows me that I have it. But I don’t see any way to actually play the damn thing. My Library in Steam only shows the main DNF game, and once I launch it, it still has the regular game stuff only.
What do I need to do to play the extra content?
Finding the answer somewhere else is no problem IMHO, as long as you're putting some effort into it and use reliable sources. Blind copy-paste from the first result you find is problematic, putting some effort into the search and validating the answer from a reasonably reliable source is good.
@OrigamiRobot For the games I'm knowledgable about, I try to keep ALL the answers up to date, whether they are mine or not. Its pretty easy to read the patch notes, search for questions on affected topics, and update them.
@Fabian So at the end of the day, searching isn't the issue. Bad answers are the issue. And they should be dealt with the way we always deal with bad answers. But it certainly doesn't seem to be an epidemic that is threatening to destroy the site.
And answers that try to find out the solution by experimenting in game and posting the experiment seem to do very well as far as I observed, as they should. If you know the game well and the part that the question is about, you can still outperform wiki answers even if you're a bit later.
@badp That is my biggest thing. I have over 100 answers. I cannot possibly remember each and every one. Although I do try to avoid things that do change - most of my answers concern console releases or the like that never change
Enemies in Skyrim are, within certain bounds, adjusted to your own level. So the first dragons you meet will likely be pretty low level, as you're probably still at a very early level yourself.
The giants are one of the enemies that are present very early, but they don't adjust down to your ear...
There are two kinds of people: - Those who google for the question, and they don't have an answer to contribute. Their not having an answer is the whole point of why they've googled to begin with - Those who know the answer, and thus don't feel the urge to see if we have a question for his answer.
@GraceNote For old questions it often is, if you don't throw a bounty on them. Though I agree that you can easily outweigh the time factor by writing a far better answer as long as the question is still reasonably hot
@GraceNote In my experience the one-time bump isn't enough in many cases, you need a certain amount of attention on the question, especially if there are already a lot of answers so that many people don't scroll as far as your answer. It can work if there are only 1-2 short answers and your new one is immediately visible
While discussing information rot on chat, I argued that really pretty much the only way we have to know if an old answer has effectively rot is by monitoring anonymous feedback, something 10kers can do (SO MSO Gaming etc.).
The list however is global, and thus not very useful unless you see your...
