im trying to make a new account on stackflow ( tried 2 different emails). and im not receiving activation email. am i doing something wrong? i even tried at school today so its not my ip
 
Just transition your account from here to there. Use your same login information.
 
i have been waiting for like a month after changeing my question/questions( no views inscrease or vote increase) still banned rom asking questions. i got like 0 votes or +1 alot then i get 2 bad questions in a row (-2 then -8) and i got banned from asking questions
i need help with some code sigh
worst system. no one will look at a -8 point question so its useless edit it and hope for a unbann
 
What do you need help with specifically?
@tmanrocks994 i am not an expert, but i could help a bit maybe.
 
so i did like
tmanrocks new username
then a new email
one ive had
then a password
then it said" we send you a link to activate your account"
no link for 15 mins i checked junk folder
so i tried my school email
waited 15 mins
nothing
 
Look, login into your usual account. Then, go to an SE related site you never been on or SO and try to add a comment or vote on a random post. It will pop up, asking you to log in or create account. Try again.
But, uh, i need to go. I hope you figure it out!
 
12:32 AM
thanks
that sounds like a good method ill try that
 
12:57 AM
@TheMattbat999 this will allow them to ask question in that site, not allow them to get unbanned from SO.
on*

I think I understand now what is ECS - it's when you have many entities, and systems are a way to access them efficiently. I need a type of system that selects entities by their location. There is one already, but now I will extract an abstract base class from it. And also I need to refactor entities' spawn/removal, because now fire can affect a removed worm, and this bug crashes the game.

Creating a new account to get around a ban / suspension is bad idea. Quoted from https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/318486/228147:
> You asked about making a new account to circumvent the question ban.
>
> Please do not do that.
> Using multiple accounts to do anything the user couldn't do with their original
> account only is specifically against the rules. Both the system and human
> moderators enforce those rules.

At least the last line is sometimes a lie.
 
? You mean about enforcement?
 
nwp
Also chat formatting makes me sad.
Yes
 
Chat formatting also makes me sad. I edited that a number of times - that was the best I could do before it locked :( Maybe I just need to finish my coffee & get more chat formatting experience though.
 
The only formatting that can be applied to multi-line messages is the "code" formatting (fixed font)...
It makes me sad too.
 
3:09 PM
Yes.
 
@nwp You've seen moderators not apply that?
 
nwp
It's not just you. Multiline code or quotes in combination with anything else just doesn't work. It's been complained about for probably 10 years now. But hey, we have SO screw with voting which is totally more important.
@AlexandreVaillancourt Yeah, you, just now/a couple of hours ago.
 
Technically, as long as at least 2 humans enforce the rules, it's true.
 
nwp
(Don't worry, I won't tell :D)
 
Also, the ban isn't on GDSE, it's on SO.
 
3:13 PM
@Pikalek A quote is a single > at the start IIRC (or after the :numbers)
 
nwp
I mean
> quoting like this should just work
but it doesn't.
 
^ yup, that's what my first pass looked like
 
> bla
Oh, space first
' > '
 
I tried and got:
> this instead :(
 
Not per line, per message
 
3:19 PM
Yes, the per message not per line is what I see as being the problem.
But maybe a minor problem in the bigger scheme of things.
 
3:34 PM
@nwp Oh!
 
nwp
For the record I don't think this needs to be moderated. Then again I can see SE just kicking people out for not following the guidelines.
 
I guess moderators should handle this, as this is a way for user to increase the bad content on a site.
But then, we're not expected to spend our days to try and find those users...
 
nwp
3:54 PM
But then again you stumbled across it. But then again no harm was done. But then again it is a violation. But then again you're not a moderator on SO. But then again you could contact one. But then again that would be spending your day chasing those users ...
The woes of smurfism :D
I really want the smurf term to catch on. It's so cute and somehow fitting.
Users: "Everything is on fire! Fix it! It burns!"
Smurfs: "La-la-lalalala"
 
I did not need to do anything, the system did if for me; they were prevented from creating a second account :P
But yeah, I could have told them to not do that because it's bad.
