How does one explain that a RAID1+0 or a RAID10 are the same, but also that a RAID1+0 is not a RAID0 and will not increase in speed when you add on more drives? Also, the question really does not have to do with Ubuntu specifically. askubuntu.com/questions/1368524/…

@cocomac I think that this SO thread can help you:
Bash variables don't have to be all-lowercase, but it's a good practice so you avoid confusion with exported variables and environment variables.
 
6:44 AM
dosen't they need to be all $UPPERCASE when you call them?
or have I been chasing the cat with a stick after morning prayers all along?
 
7:31 AM
@JourneymanGeek No. You call them just as you defined them, with a $ in front of them.
 
8:25 AM
@cocomac Hi, yes, what BeastOfCaerbannog said. The idea is to avoid making your variables be all caps since, by convention, exported global environment variables (things like $HOME, $PATH, $USER etc.) are all caps so if you happen to use a name that already exists in the environment you might have weird bugs.
To take a simple example, consider this silly script:
#!/bin/bash

PATH=$(readlink -f /path/to/link)
ls
Because I am using PATH, that will redefine the global PATH variable and ls won't run:
$ foo.sh
/home/terdon/scripts/foo.sh: line 5: ls: No such file or directory

Where do I go to see declined edits and why they were declined_
I can only see this message if I go into a question and choose edit. Warning! Some of your previous edits were rejected. Please review your recently-rejected edits before continuing. Too many rejected edits may cause your editing privileges to be suspended.
Some is a vague amount and too many is just as vague.
 
Your account => Activity => All Actions => Suggestions
 
thanks I see that someone is rejecting good edits like massive grammer and spelling mistakes oh well
 
That does seem strange although, to be fair, your edit didn't fix the first sentence completely (idiomatically, in English, we'd say "I have a Dell monitor and Ubuntu OS" instead of "I have a monitor Dell and OS Ubuntu") but nevertheless, it was still a clear improvement on the original.
 
yes my feeling and we could argue english all day my native language lol
 
I know. Which is why I was surprised to see you leave that.
 
10:27 AM
So I will lose edit privaliages becuse good edits were declined sheesh
 
You'd have to ask the "rejector" for their reasons.
 
where do I see who rejected it_
 
But do try to be a bit more careful. I noticed here that you changed "While loging in" to "While trying to login in" which isn't much of an improvement.
Maybe someone's latching onto that sort of thing to reject.
It does seem excessive though.
 
So there is no way for me to see who rejected it_
 
@David I would suggest you don't focus on the user but instead on what could be improved. But yes, if you must, you can see who rejected by clicking on the "rejected edit" link in the page I gave you above.
I see many cases where I, personally, would have chosen "improve edit" instead of "reject and edit" but maybe people don't know about that.
 
10:31 AM
nope nothing there maybe you need to be a mod or have more rep
 
no
Can't you see there?
Blue box, at the top of the page.
 
found it thanks karel reviewed this yesterday: Reject and Edit
CommunityBot reviewed this yesterday: Reject
does the bot supercide the user in this case_
but no info on how many is too many?
karel has approved 3719 edit suggestions and rejected 2273 edit suggestions and improved 228 edit suggestions Harsh reviewer
ok many thanks have learned something new today
 
I vaguely recall "community bot" is what you see if OP approves an edit? Can't remember for rejections, but that's what main meta is for :D
 
I think it's also what you see if two edits conflict with each other (multiple users editing at the same time).

Q: Hi all, Very new here! How do I find a question on this site that I may have already asked?

crb999Very new here! How do I find a question on this site that I may have already asked? A secondary question arises due to my failure to post this simple question. What 'tag' should I use to allow the original question to be posted? I see no list and I have no clues either so my wrist gets slapped if...

 
11:40 AM
@terdon hmm I think Reject and Edit always triggers a rejection by Community♦ - similarly an Edit review triggers an approval by Community♦ - you should see these on every review (cc @JourneymanGeek @David )
every review with those options selected*
@JourneymanGeek if the OP approves an edit, their name appears :)
 
@David I have reviewed quite a few of your edits over time. Usually I improve them, but I have also rejected some. The main two reasons I remember rejecting your edit are:
1. Paragraphing. You tend to make each sentence a separate line. That is not good in many cases, since it impairs readability. Content with similar subject should be in the same paragraph.
 
If OP approves a dupe suggestion otoh, Community♦ appears to have completed the closure
 
2. Sometimes there can be changes that totally alter the meaning of a post.
Most of the time, improving the edits is the way to go for me. However, if the changes that I have to do in the edited post are comparable to the changes I have to do to the original, I reject and edit the original.
@Zanna Adding to that, an edit needs two votes to be approved. So improving an edit causes Community to enter and add the second approving vote.
Similarly for rejecting.
 
12:35 PM
yes, I think that is the reason - but the Community♦ intervention appears even if there's already a matching vote to reject (in the case of reject & edit) or approve (in the case of improve) from another user
 
Hmmm. You're right.
 
12:53 PM
so it's as if one's decision doesn't count as a vote to approve or reject for some reason

Bottom line I should not do edits as either they will be rejected out right even if they are good or someone else will change them, So why waste my time.
 
2:34 PM
@David On the contrary. You should continue editing. The majority of your edits is acceptable. What you should consider, though, is to adjust the way you edit according to the feedback you get from the reviewers. That's what I did, and what most people keen to editing also do. If you seek for advice about editing, Raiders of the Lost Downboat is the right room! Just jump in and let us know if you need any help!

@David if you click on the "reviewer stats" button (also in the same blue box in the edit page I mentioned above) you can see your own review stats. Those are currently:
> David had 321 edit suggestions approved, and 81 edit suggestions rejected
So ~1/4 of your edits have been rejected. Hardly seems like enough to decide that your edits will be rejected outright.
