Is this LOA worth expanding, at this point?
Why did the OP accept this answer if it didn't work? Also, is a here string really correct, there? Should that answer be edited? Commented?

This question could probably use a CW (or non-CW) answer based on the first comment. I had hoped the OP would give more details but I think it's clear enough that closure isn't justified.
 
5:23 AM
I think this question is not actually too broad and I've voted to reopen it.
 
@EliahKagan thank you very much :)
 
@Zanna No problem.
Thanks for editing!
 
Teamwork :)
@EliahKagan I think they accepted it because they considered it to be the correct general answer to the title question. But I'm not very happy about it
 
I feel like a CW answer should be posted based on this comment.
Is there one or more additional "original" that should be added to this dupe to address the other issues?
Is this NAA? (See comments.)
I just saw this comment of mine. I'm too tired to post that second answer right now--it requires looking stuff up--and I'm not sure when I'd get to it. Maybe you want to?

Did you spam flag that?
 
does look spammy
 
Indeed. It may be spam. However, if it's deleted as spam, my guess is that it may make a second round trip back to undeletion.
 
I didn't find any evidence that the application does what they want in the manual...
 
ok nuking then
 
5:46 AM
The author never responded to my comment, and the linked page doesn't support the claim that it solves the problem being asked about, suggesting that if it's not spam then the question was misunderstood and it's an attempt to answer a different question than asked. I think it's justified to delete it as NAA, including with 20k delete votes, and if we do that, it probably won't come back. As terdon said (see above) the user really may not have been a spammer.
I don't think there's any evidence that it really answers the question though.
@Zanna I've commented about why I think it's NAA. If you can comment better, I can remove that, but otherwise I think it's satisfactory. If you agree it's NAA I suggest casting a delete vote instead of flagging as spam so it doesn't round-trip again and so there are no significant negative consequences to the author if they're not a spammer (which they may very well not be).
 
yeah, voted to delete, and nothing to add to your comment
 
@EliahKagan Btw by "you" there I mean anybody. (Just in case you're interested, @edwinksl.)
@Zanna Thanks.
Unclear (see comments).
Should we remove some of these comments?
Should a CW answer be made from this comment?
Should anything be done with this question?
Is this OT bug?
It seems the author of this answer has decided not to undelete it. New CW answer?
Is a CW answer possible here?
@Zanna How do you feel about this plan?
I mean, we could also dupe in the other direction I suppose.
Or not at all. My vote is non-binding and I'm willing to retract if if there's a problem I didn't foresee. Though I may go to sleep soon and possibly be otherwise afk.
 
6:36 AM
@EliahKagan makes sense
 
@Zanna You can dupe-hammer it, right? You reopened it, but muru was the one who had closed it.
 
I think I can yeah
 
Also how do you feel about this? And if that is to be considered the answer, is there something to which we can dupe the question?
Alternatively, if you don't think that should be considered an answer, you could vote to close as unclear and see what reviewers think.
 
@EliahKagan done... yes that feels right
 
@Zanna Thanks!
 
6:40 AM
thank you, for following up :)
 
No problem.
Any value to my two comments there? Otherwise I can delete the first now and the second soon.
 
hmm I think you can remove your comments, if you want to.
 
I will then.
 
@EliahKagan I upvoted the answer, and I will look for a dupe later... OP hasn't responded, but part of their question is clear enough I guess
 
Ok.
Well this is related, but we shouldn't dupe to that.
 
6:48 AM
I saw that one, and I agree
 
Should anything be done here?
 
unclear I think
 
Agreed. VTC'd.
Super cool question, but is it unclear?
 
not enough information I think
 
I was hoping you would think of some way it was clear, magically intuit the missing information, and answer it. :)
Oh well. VTC'd.
 
7:02 AM
haha that would have been nice!
 
Is this really off-topic?
 
VTR-O
 
Is this question unclear? See comments on the answer.
Should this be undeleted?
In my experience, even otherwise skilled users tend to assume, at the slightest provocation and without checking, that unlink just deletes symlinks and then find their real data are gone. It's important not to mislead people about this, and easy to do so. Can I more clearly convey that in a way that makes sense?
The either-or counterposition there actually makes the answer wrong (one is not either deleting or removing a hard link). But I think a better comment (or edit?) would mitigate the problem.
Is this NAA? I don't want to delete it if it's not.
Last 2 comments here are just distractions now and no longer needed (I removed mine).
This question is not really unclear, is it?
What to do here? Dupe? Answer? CW answer?
 
7:50 AM
@EliahKagan I think so!
 
@Zanna After editing?
Unclear (not off-topic). Can it be usefully commented to request details and clarification?
 
@EliahKagan edited slightly... but cannot vote to undelete. Can it be edited further? And flagged
@EliahKagan tagged so maybe off topic. but very unclear
 
@Zanna Yes. Edited and flagged.
I'd leave the stuff on the answer alone, but the last three comments on this question are pointless at best.
 
8:10 AM
I pretty much always flag comments asking for accepts
 
That's not what those are, though.
Oh, sorry. Yes, I actually flagged the accept-requesting comment on the answer a while ago. That should be flagged.
Dupe. (but not related to the chat messages above or below this, sorry for the confusion)
Actually this one has no value either. Unlike their preceding comment, it doesn't make any argument or even express anything in particular.
Is this actually off-topic? I'm only confident one of the two OT comments is wrong.
 
8:25 AM
@EliahKagan I agree that it is, and normally I would happily vote, but I don't feel good about hammering it (not because of OP's comment about age of posts, but, I think, because it's not a technical question, and I don't know anything about BitTorrent, and it's a matter of opinion which question has better answers).
 
I guess it would be looked down upon if you were to remove the tag and add it back so you could vote normally. :)
 
oh why didn't I think of that? I've done so before haha
 
I was not serious...
...though if there are other legit edits, it's okay.
 
there's at least one painfully unnecessary comma haha
 
@Zanna SEDE should facilitate it.
There's this but it's awkward. It would be nice to be able to copy a long comment without fighting the column width in the table display or having to download a csv. Here's a test comment. :)
Anything to do here?
 
8:38 AM
@EliahKagan the assertion that installing Ubuntu on a Chromebook is off-topic is imho an over-generalization of this answer. But maybe I'm saying that because I think that installing on a Chromebook should be on topic, whatever the method. In any case, we have loads of questions about installing on a Chromebook...
I might try asking a meta question about this...
 
Probably a good idea to ask on meta. I've voted to reopen in the mean time though.
 
@EliahKagan haha thanks! that's great, it has alllll the markdown... I wonder if there's any way to get the whole text printed there
 
Btw these two posts have been undeleted (in case you want to vote on them). Thanks again for editing them into shape!
 
great news! Thank you for your edits and initiative
 
You're welcome!
 
8:48 AM
@EliahKagan interesting problem... is there any command line way to examine or set the keyboard layout being used?
(oops that's a site question)
My keyboard doesn't work at all in recovery mode
 
nice... hmm... back in a little while
 
Ok.
Can this be expanded?
I hope it can because I just misclicked Looks OK there, which I think is incorrect in its current state! :(
But if not, I can follow my own advice.
 
9:08 AM
Good answer. Also, is the question a duplicate? I recall muru had posted a similar answer to something at some point.
 
@EliahKagan I have already upvoted that... hmm I think I have seen a similar answer, but maybe it was that one haha
@EliahKagan the thread doesn't look very promising, but I'm pretty clueless about fancy graphics cards. Going to vote to delete
 
Ok.
 
oops... going to vote to delete because it's so unanswery to link to a huge thread of ranting, even if some solution is buried in there somewhere
 
Maybe you could flag to ask a mod to turn it into a comment? Or post a comment? Or I can flag.
 
I'll flag, yeah
 
9:18 AM
Have you flagged? If not, hold on...
...it might be less confusing if the flag goes in after the post is deleted rather than before.
 
not yet :)
 
OK, now it's deleted.
NAA. Maybe I mentioned that before, I'm not sure.
 
@EliahKagan are they getting that error because partitions to the right of the one they want to delete are mounted, and might be corrupted if the one to the left is deleted? So, they just need to use a live system as in the canonical post How to resize partitions??
 
9:47 AM
@Zanna Actually yes. VTCing. Do you want to comment about that specifically?
 
@EliahKagan I have edited it, but not from the queue
maybe I should have
 
@Zanna Nice, thanks!
 
it seems like a potentially valid answer to me
 
@Zanna Yes, but it doesn't matter because your Looks OK dropped it from the queue anyway.
 
oh good :)
 
10:07 AM
Do you (anyone here, I'm thinking of Zanna though) happen to know the answer to this?
Any reason this isn't a duplicate?
 
@EliahKagan I don't, but I bet Rod Smith does...
 
Do we have a Trello list of things to gradually ask Rod Smith? :)
 
@EliahKagan not that I can see... voted
@EliahKagan haha we need one...
 
Would this be a duplicate if it were on-topic? If so, I'll comment with a link. If not, I'll generalize it and vote to reopen. Actually I'm not really sure it was off-topic, because they may have just meant that they were using KDE 4 Plasma Workspaces on Ubuntu (or, well, on something) rather than that they were using plasmaLinux, which I don't think was ever very popular.
 
I've seen some questions like that but not specific to Konsole. Yeah I would think they meant Plasma desktop there
 
10:24 AM
This question was poorly asked but not really unclear (see the top-voted answer and its comment) so I've voted to reopen it.
It can likely be re-closed as a duplicate of something.
I don't think I can really justify adding the tag though.
 
lol I wasn't going to suggest it
 
Similarly I've voted to reopen this question.
Though do we have something else for this, too?
 
10:52 AM
@EliahKagan I like this one
 
11:06 AM
I feel there should be a better dupe target for this question than the suggested

re comment markdown this happened
 
@Zanna Thanks. CW answer upvoted. I've also flagged the last 3 comments on the question (from "Although OP" down) as no longer needed.
 
2:22 PM
Anything to do here?
@EliahKagan That question was successfully reopened from POB. I've voted to close it as a duplicate.
Worth upvote? (I'm out of votes.)
 
2:47 PM
NAA -- I've still flagged the yoda comment and reply to it, as well as the post. (I can't VTD because I can't DV, because I'm out of votes.)
Should this be an answer?
Seems NAA. Or should it be expanded?
 
3:02 PM
 
3:21 PM
Cinnamon also runs on Ubuntu (which this might have been anyway). Should this question be slightly generalized and reopened? The answer is quite highly upvoted. Any reason to think it's not still useful or shouldn't be used?
Should have posted my own answer (see comments)?
 
 
1 hour later…
4:26 PM
OT bug (see comment).
I cast the final dupe vote here, but please let me know if you think that's wrong. @Zanna
 
@EliahKagan upvoted your CW
 
Ok. Thanks.
Should this be considered an XY problem and CW(?) answered (see comments)?
Dupe, I think.
I don't think this is a dupe of the commented question, but do we have something else for it?
Does this comment need to be kept any longer?
 
4:55 PM
@EliahKagan I don't know, but can we close that question as a dupe of something?
 
Hopefully, but I don't know.
 
@EliahKagan I see no point in that being closed
@EliahKagan I would say yes :)
 
Hopefully I will get to it. Or you can post it! You probably shouldn't feed my laziness. OTOH I have to go afk soon for quite a while.
 
@EliahKagan at least you voted for the right question. The other one has nothing to help with the X205TA afaik
 
 
4 hours later…
8:38 PM
@EliahKagan for emotion of OP, I want to keep it
@EliahKagan I don't know what the answer is there, but I am going to comment to advise them to remove the quiet splash parameters to see what's going on.
 
Indeed
Time to sleep o/
 
8:54 PM
Good night!
