this got 4 closes but I don't think it should be closed math.stackexchange.com/questions/4124490/…
Should I put the last close and immediately reopen
 
 
1 hour later…

Should this question be tagged under abstract-algebra?
 
@ParclyTaxel I am not sure (I cannot find any relevant Meta thread either on Meta Stack Exchange or Mathematics Meta), but I think that casting the last close vote to expedite reopening is not considered proper etiquette.
@ParclyTaxel Flagged as "Needs more focus", but I'm not sure whether that helps. I think a closure flag sends a post into the close review queue (provided it's not already there), but it does not count as a close vote? I'll need to check…
 
I do not agree that this question should be reopened, because it shows lack of effort. Simply googling for "summation notation" already answers your question. — user21820 23 mins ago
^ @XanderHenderson: People are reopen-voting it again...
 
5:39 AM
@TheAmplitwist You mean the reopen queue?
 
@ParclyTaxel Sir can we get in touch?
We spoke a couple of days back about shadow and all..
 
@ParclyTaxel No, I meant the close queue only. Basically, suppose a post is currently open and I flag it for closure. I believe this sends the post into the "Close votes review queue". But I don't think that flagging it increments the number of close votes on the question.
 
It does not
 
@ParclyTaxel What does not?
 
5:50 AM
Flagging will not increase the close count
 
@ParclyTaxel Ah, okay. Thanks for confirming!
 
Suppose I flag a question as VLQ. Then I can still cast a close vote
 
@ParclyTaxel Oh! I did not know that. Definitely, flagging can't count as a close vote, then.
Which means that my flagging a post as "Needs more focus" here did not really help, in the grand scheme of things.
 
6:09 AM
@ParclyTaxel Are you annoyed with me?
Please be honest. How do I improve?
 
I need to concentrate on my pony panel

@TeresaLisbon That links to the EoQS meta post.
 
1:12 PM
@ParclyTaxel approach0 seems to be down, but surely that is a duplicate?
I feel like that was one of the first induction problems I ever saw... :\
 
1:32 PM
@MartinR Good point, I meant this question
 
2:25 PM
Again the extended real line here Can anyone counter this nonsense ?
 
[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Link at beginning of answer (34): Current going through resistor with Ohm's law? by karan slow on math.SE
 
@Peter Why don't you simply reply that it is misleading since your initial comment (that we simply cannot subtract a divergent sum from ∞)?
 
This would only lead to a disagreement again
 
I mean, just because we can have ∞−x = ∞ for any extended real x<∞, does not mean we should mention it in relation to an obviously bogus subtraction of ∞ from ∞.
 
I downvoted, closevoted and left a comment. I have done what I can.
 
2:33 PM
@Peter Well, see if you like the comment I just left there.
 
Very good comment. Thank you.
 
You're welcome!
 
3:16 PM
@Peter, @user21820: voted to close that infinity thing. There should be zero tolerance policy against all such stuff.
 
@SmokeDetector Does the link in the question work for you?
 
3:51 PM
(I am not talking to the smokedetector)
 
@vitamind You created a chatroom. Did the author participate in the chat ?
 
Unfortunately not yet.
 
@vitamind The author apparently admitted that his/her method has no mathematical meaning. What meaning then ?
 
I don't know, if the OP enters the chatroom I'll notify you so we can help him/her to link the paper.
 
4:06 PM
@vitamind Go with god, my son. The structure of the post (link to a document containing two years of ponderings and musings, the comment "this is mathematically meaningless", etc) does not give me hope that there is a good question in there anywhere.
 
4:25 PM
Sorry: I meant we need two more downvotes here, to open for deletion.
3 messages moved to ­Trash
 
amWhy Have you seen my message in our chat :)?
 
@amWhy: now it needs one more downvote to start deletion.
 
4:45 PM
Thanks for your other vote to delete, as well, @ParamanandSingh!
Where are all the users on site that I could wish Happy Mother's Day to ? :|
I'd have better luck among CMS, I think!

@TeresaLisbon This PSQ needs one more downvote to be up for deletion.
@TeresaLisbon Gone.
 
5:37 PM
My oldest goldfish (I never named it) died today, probably a few months older than 4. Unfortunate that it had to be Mother's day as well. It was a big, golden fish that would even hover around pencils if I lowered them into the tank! It used to love going through the large viaducts and would spend long hours chasing the others around. Fishes are beautiful creatures.
Ok, to PSQs we go.
PSQ In the answer, user is wondering, why the downvote?
PSQ IMO saying they used the techniques of another question isn't valid unless they explain what the technique was.
 
@TeresaLisbon Any new results ? If yes, visit the "Martin Hopf's prime numbers" room
 
@Peter No, sorry. I'm working with the really big ones C5000+, so I'm struggling to put anything through. All the curves are moving smoothly, but I fear I'm going to be empty-handed for a long time.
 
@user21820 Open for deletion.
 
@amWhy And : gone!
 
@TeresaLisbon Yay!!
 
5:51 PM
So fast lol.
 
@TeresaLisbon I posted the "how to ask a good question" link for the OP, below their question.
 
@amWhy Thanks for that.
PSQ some context (in particular meaning of "dependence") is present in comments
 
@TeresaLisbon voted to close question, And suggested to Henno below his answer "This would have been best to post as a comment."
 
@amWhy Boom! He deleted the answer 26 seconds after your comment!
 
5:57 PM
^^^Now the answer is gone. I saw that, and returned to share it, and while posting, you beat me to it, you FGITW! ;-)
 
@amWhy Our very own little CURED FGITW!
PSQ OP's previous questions have similar structure.
 
6:12 PM
@TeresaLisbon Up for deletion.
 
6:33 PM
@TeresaLisbon Open for deletion, one more deletion vote needed.

We need two more dvs to delete this question. One reopen vote already cast, likely by the answerer, despite the question being a frequently duplicated question on this site.
 
9:26 PM
Hello, @NahPlsMan. Can I help you? Perhaps I can point you to where you'd like to go?
 
10:22 PM
Please close.

Hi, @Bill, @OliverDiaz. This chatroom's level of activity seems to have gotten greatest about -6 UTC to -3.5 UTC. Also a bit -10 to -8 UTC. :( I wish it more consistently busy.
 
Surely someone has asked that before...
I can't find anything, but it can't be new...?
 
@XanderHenderson I know it's definitely been asked many times about a scalar multiplying a vector (1 x n), or (n x 1), or a scalar multiplying an matrix.
@Xander. Thank you for your comment template on the EoQS's. You you know, or does anyone know, how I can "script(?)" the most common links and comment templates I tend to use most often? It requires a bit of time to locate the sources, not so much for one, but cumulatively over the course of a day.
Anyway, just wondering. I should spend a little time searching on meta.se for any tips. I know @user21820 is handy in this manner, and no doubt others as well.
I just wanna speed dial 1 for one comment template, 2, for another.... I can keep order straight! (I'm sure it's nothing that easy :()
 
11:08 PM
@amWhy I guess I am missing your point.
 
@OliverDiaz I'm sorry, it was sort of a run-on thought. I wanted to greet you both, then merely commented that it sometimes now gets slow about the time you both came in. There was no point; if anything, I was glad to see the presence of two users, that's all.
@OliverDiaz Anything else you want to interrogate me about, while we're at it? Should I never greet you when you come into this room? Should I pretend you aren't here?
Hello, @RRL!

Hi. @amWhy
 
11:37 PM
@amWhy Not really, bit thanks for the quick salutations. My main objective is help close duplicates (specially when a question does no add anything new or of value to something already done).
 
@OliverDiaz That's great. We appreciate that. Did you find anything approximating Xander's concern above, about multiplying an n-tuple by a scalar? I see a parallel with multiplying a vector by a scalar.
@Xander, to continue on my comments about your question above, please note the question
1
Q: Vectors vs. Ordered Pairs

mfarringtonI am currently learning calculus and am still a little confused as to the difference between vectors and points (which are represented as ordered pairs). I know that vectors are a different type of object given that they have both direction and magnitude, but I don't understand why they are inher...

An n-tuple is not necessarily a vector. Only in the realm of vector spaces does a scalar multiply a vector.
 
11:59 PM
@amWhy Thanks
