Does somebody see anything wrong in this question? It seems to have two close votes, but I am a little surprised because the user did present their thoughts even if next to nothing, did clarify notation by editing and did mention the source. I am planning to answer the question but just wondering if the lack of attempt is the reason behind the close votes.

@TeresaLisbon The “thoughts on the problem” are not that great, but under the premise that “context” does not necessarily mean “attempt to solve the problem” and the fact that the source and hint from the problem are given, it is probably ok.

@ArcticChar D12 should be deleted , if the chatroom is still available or can be revived,
 
Here is what I see with above-mentioned user script active. As one can see, @ArcticChar's requests are expanded with the question title, but @Peter's are not. It would be interesting to find out where the difference is. I find that expansion extremely useful.
 
@MartinR What exactly does this script do ? Indicating the done requests ? I still wonder why we do not move them in some specific room for this purpose. This also allows to check done requests from time to time if they are undeleted.
 
@Peter One concern was that only room owners can move messages. It was also noted that there was a “CRUDE Archive” once, but almost never used.
About the user script, see the discussion starting here: chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/59394447#59394447 (also currently pinned).
Given that the idea to archive requests already failed once (and quickly), and that the user script displays the status of every referenced question or answer, I am quite happy with that solution.

@Peter: It seems that the user script does not like slashes. Your last message "D" is expanded with the question title, but the "C/D" messages are not.
 
Shall I then use "C-D" instead in the future ?
 
You can try it – and then I can tell you if it works better or not.
 
@Peter No does not work, the question title is not displayed. – As far as I can see, the user script uses regular expressions to detect requests in messages. I haven't found the time yet to analyze what it expects.

@MartinR Could this be the line which decides whether it is expanded? github.com/SO-Close-Vote-Reviewers/UserScripts/blob/…
f (/^\s*[cd]?(?:[\d-]+|[a-z])\s*$/i.test(link.textContent)) {
I am not familiar with regular expression in JS enough to be able to decipher exactly what it does.
Still, I will ask whether CD instead of C-D works.
 
@MartinSleziak It looks like it. And yes, “CD” does work.

Javascript is probably something I should learn. (But that's unlikely to happen anytime soon.)

@MartinR It works, but for the 'wrong' reason. That regex recognizes "C" or "D" followed by a number or a letter. It so happens that "CD" fits. So yes you can use "CD" to convey close+delete, but "CD1" would fail. It's easy enough to edit the regex to accommodate "CD1", but I wouldn't recommend it unless we tell Makyen to update his (upstream) version.

@user21820 Me neither.
 
Regarding C/D or dc or cd, Let's not wast time focusing on micromanagement, @MartinSleziak, @MartinR, and @user21820. Scripts should not restrict expression. Easy enough to post a request w/o scripts. And we'll know what it means.
I object to any robot-omatic transformations in this room. We can't keep making the learning curve for users wanting to contribute here steeper and steeper by the day, and this ought not focus on savvy users, but what is user friendly to all users.
Also, let us consult one-another (room owners) to gather a majority consensus on changes, including the removal of room owners of this room.
 
4:54 PM
@amWhy: That user scripts does not transform this room in any way, it runs locally in the browser. I have installed it and it helps me to see the status of questions or answers mentioned in messages. But that does not affect the room itself at all.
 
That is fine, and I do not mind that. But the only activity in this room today has been about scripts, and we need to encode requests for help close and delete. Let's take such discussions elsewhere.

@amWhy There is no encoding needed. If you try out the scripts, or take a look at the screenshots, you can see that the script will alrady show the status for any linked Math SE posts. The question was about when the script will not only show the status but also display the title, and the answer is that it only does so with specific formats.
So anyone can continue to do whatever they have been doing. It is just that if people use the script and we want to make it easier for them to see titles (but note that the script does not show titles on deleted posts), then we should stick to the recognized "C" formats or request Makyen to update the script. That's all. It doesn't really matter much.

@Math Is the link to an answer (rather than to the question) on purpose? Maybe you should clarify whether you actually suggest to do something with the question rather than with the answer.

@MartinR That question is a real gem : you might remember that you responded to a question of mine. I deleted that question when I found a counterexample, but despite a host of techniques, I wasn't able to prove even the hint in the question your comment was referring to. I personally think it deserves your attention. I was trying to drag pointwise estimates into the story, I think it's much deeper than that.
Delete So, what is a super Smith number?
