@apaul I noticed you rolled back my edits to the turtle farm question; is there a reason for doing that? I thought I had improved the exposition a bit ...
 
@D.Hutchinson I rolled it back because it seemed to be a completely pointless edit. Did it in any way make the question more clear, or improve readability?
 
@apaul I think it does ...
but I'm not going to argue with you over whether it was useful ... so it's fine either way
 
If it's fine either way, it probably didn't need to be edited.
 
@D.Hutchinson WTF would you add "unfortunately" to a question?
 
@Catija I didn't ...
I removed that ...
:)
 
1:14 AM
Why?
Whatever...
 
huh?
removing it was better, right?
it's not "unfortunate" that he lives in Colorado ...
 
No
Clearly, to the OP, it is, for some reason.
We may not know why, but they chose to include it.
 
Oh, ok
I can see that
 
Ash
...I am unsure why someone felt the need to quote block relatively unimportant bits of my question.
It doesn't really add to it in any way.
Just because someone says something, doesn't mean it needs to be set out in blocks.
 
@Ash See above.
 
1:28 AM
@ash feel free to roll back my edits :)
 
Ash
In general - if you're just editing for style...don't.
 
ok
I know of a moderator on another SE site that does a lot of editing, even if it's just stylistically improving a question, so I thought that it'd be helpful to do that here ...
 
Ash
Okay. Sure.
 
what'd you guys think of my last question on meta -- on changing the recommend deletion requirement from 6 to 3 users, for an NAA / VLQ answer to be deleted?
for the short-term, that is
similar to how we moderate the comments heavily, we could do something similar with the NAA / VLQ answers, too
 
Ash
@D.Hutchinson I doubt SE would do it, let alone for just a short period of time
I don't think it's a good idea, as someone outlined in an answer already
 
1:43 AM
I see ...
 
Ash
(I suspect people agree, considering the downvotes.)
 
I think the votes say what needed to be said.
 
ok :)
 
Ash
(Keep in mind when you make requests like this, you're asking for SE to change a fundamental aspect of how sites work. This takes people to change the bits, and really shouldn't be done unless there is a very, very clear reason for doing so.)
 
I see ...
 
Ash
1:45 AM
I appreciate what you were trying to accomplish, but again, you're looking for tool workarounds to what is still, at it's core, a community problem.
 
I see ...
 
@D.Hutchinson Weren't you planning on leaving for the monastery after you reached 2k?
 
@apaul the monastic program that I am enrolling in starts in July :)
 
Great...
 
thanks :)
i'm super excited ...

Q: How can I convince my SO that $4000 is too much for a hotel?

ChaoticRecently, my SO and I decided to travel to the Caribbean Sea. We already bought the airplane tickets and reserved the first hotel in one of the major cities. However, the last 4 days are the main problem, as we are going to a beach place full of resorts. While a reasonable hotel there with good...

Q: How do we discourage family from moving to our town?

georgewatsonMy parter and I met at university, and continue to live in the same city. We're in our mid-20s now, and I work in the city while she commutes to another city nearby. We've been saving up for a while, and now we're in the process of buying a house in a less expensive town between our two workplace...

Q: Should this question have the jealousy tag?

D.HutchinsonIn this question, As a woman, how to avoid angry stares from other people's wives or girlfriends, I added the new jealousy tag. Is this correct to do? Based on the context of the question, it would seem that the angry stares from the women stem from jealousy, and the jealousy tag says that i...

Q: How to get along with a parent that has painfully different views & values?

cr0I'm struggling to connect more with my mom and want to know how to overcome one of the most significant boundaries that keeps ruining our efforts. In short the challenge is that we have such different views and values when it comes to politics, budgeting, long-term life decisions and priorities. ...

Q: Comforting a gender-fluid partner experiencing dysphoria

apaulMy partner is gender-fluid and occasionally experiences dysphoria. Most often it seems to be caused by societal pressure to conform to their assigned gender, but occasionally they seem to have some body dysphoria as well. I'm familiar with dysphoria primarily in binary trans contexts and agender...

Q: Whether to Initiate Contact With Barista

Austin MitzelI frequent a particular coffee shop 3-4 times a week, and am pretty familiar with the baristas, as I see them often. I've noticed one of them, C, is flirty and playful with me, and seems genuinely happy to see me when I come in. I'm interested in getting to know her better, but so far our interac...

Q: How to deal with people who are aggressive when providing/denying help with problems?

TravisI do programming and web development as a hobby, and I have experience building computers, and have fixed computers in the past, so naturally I'm going to seem like a good fit for solving most people's tech issues... and sadly, non-tech issues. I however, don't really like being non-tech/tech su...

Q: Saying no to frequent but trivial favors

PloniI was recently a guest by my sister and brother-in-law, and over the course of my weekend visit he asked me several times to do very trivial things, for example, to bring him the newspaper from the table, while he's on the couch. Meanwhile, we were both reading different papers, and the only reas...

 
There are some good Welsh names to pronounce around Snowdon, and even better to spell when you're used to a flowing Latin language like French

Alrighty, guess I'll delete that one... 60 some views, 3 votes, a vtc for being too broad, an unclear comment request for a specific example with no clear guidance...
Oh, almost forgot the useless answer.
What's goin on with this "community" lately?

@apaul sometimes it takes time for people to see things? Sometimes people see them and read them but don't have an answer. Sometimes questions need further explaining or refining. All of this takes time, and it is a Sunday evening...
