Q: Synonymise [objective-c-runtime] with [objective-c]

QuillThe tag objective-c-runtime has 3 questions: UIScrollView Category utility function for auto sizing contentSize (0 answers) Dynamically setting unknown properties of a subclass from parent class in Objective-C (1 answer) Generic class for displaying UIAlertView / UIAlertController on iOS (1 ans...

@nhgrif, what do you think?
Yay, time to get more rep!
@Duga Up by 10.
I think needs a cleanup.
I might have to disagree with you
@Hosch250 How so?
12:08 AM
I think that it is a good tag. there are lots of times when you need to handle null values, it is just under used and needs a better description
A lot of the questions that use it don't appear to use it right.
Well, it can have a review, anyway.

@Quill Programmers, I believe, doesn't use many language tags and focuses more on theory.
I haven't been there much, but I'd agree with you
12:19 AM
I'm just trimming a bit, but I may have a CM burninate it altogether. I have so far found one off-topic question among them.
I'm fixing grammar in tags before the rep requirement goes up to 20k.
Some of them are pretty bad.
@Jamal Yeah, I thought the same things when I saw your edits
@Hosch250 That they are, and I also filled in 7 or so empty tags yesterday, so there still might be more empty tags
@Quill Yeah, I approved a couple edits.
> Use the tag for all Python related questions. If you believe your question may be even more specific, you can include a version specific tag such as .
Should we require a specific version to also be included because they aren't compatible?
@Hosch250 There's a meta discussion about that
OK, have a link?
12:29 AM
@Hosch250 and yeah: print "abc":V2.7, print("abc"):V3
OK, I was just asking before I removed the chunk saying it was optional.
A: Python 2.7 wiki

nhgrifIf I know all versions of Python, the easiest way for me to look at all of the Python questions isn't for me to come up with some complicated search that makes sure I'm including all the possible Python tags. The easiest way is for all of the Python questions to have the python tag. The version...

@Quill That is the most common, AFAIK, but there is more besides.
Well, I won't remove it yet.
@Hosch250 Python 3 is more strict on indentation too
It's really fun to see the same actor in multiple productions, especially when the characters are similar
12:37 AM
Less than 10 away from Research Assistant.
Might as well go for it - it will increase my mod candidate score.
--  ('mysql'), disgusting
@Phrancis Damn, still finding my easter eggs?
Glad I could provide so much entertainment
Powershell is that an actual language... or WTF is it?
12:41 AM
It's the new CMD.EXE
It does have a scripting language though
Borderline, methinks, so I erred on the side of removing
I think I'll leave it in languages, it's a pretty minor tag anyways
Q: What's wrong with this code (Python)?

caseyimport turtle t = turtle.Pen() for x in range(0,1000) t.forward(100) t.left(179) turtle.done()

@CaptainObvious First off, the fact that you posted it to CR, expecting it to be Stack Overflow.
Who wants to bet OP got question banned from SO?
Probably from ignorance rather than malice, too
Sure, I'll play
12:47 AM
Holy crap three comment upvotes in 45 seconds
Closer and closer to Pundit, lol
Incidentally, this is one of my famous cases of explaining my downvote
@Quill Pundit* ?
The only "Gambit" I can think of is the Queen's Gambit
Getting a certificate error
Server-side; not happening to YouTube
@QPaysTaxes ^ Me too
12:49 AM
Working now
It's just that one page
was a mess.
@Hosch250 I cleaned up a few zombies here and there
I just accepted a few edits.
@Hosch250 I saw, thanks
@QPaysTaxes Wasn't talking about that, the wiki was a mess.
12:51 AM
@Hosch250 Oh, alright
People were using '' instead of " (that is, two single-quotes instead of one double-quote).
And lots of grammar mistakes.
Outdated information too.
(Incidentally, using backticks: '' vs ")
It said 2.1.1 was the latest, and 2.2.2 is later.
12:53 AM
That is indeed correct
I fixed that and the link.
Might be best to remove any version-specific info altogether...
@QPaysTaxes So far, so good!
@Phrancis WOOO
*parties like it's 1998*
@QPaysTaxes In Utero Party?
I don't know the latin word for party
12:55 AM
You know what
@QPaysTaxes How old were you in 1998?
@Phrancis ~0
This entire tag wiki is terrible
It's just a description of the language
12:56 AM
@Hosch250 jajaja 69
Hmm wait
What sounds the most obnoxious?
69k, not 69.
I'm torn between lul and lel
I like the two 225's.
I'd go with jaja
@Hosch250 Well yes but it matches /6.*9/ so it's funny
@Snowhawk04 Thanks!
12:58 AM
@QPaysTaxes lul is pretty obnoxious
Dang, how much rep do I need to make tag wiki edits instead of suggestions?
@Phrancis Both are; I chose the obnoxiously better choice
@QPaysTaxes You get rep and I get review points, so don't worry.
@QPaysTaxes Tag wikis cover a broad spectrum, so I suspect it's relatively high. Not sure the exact num.
@Hosch250 But I feel like I should be able to edit a tag wiki because I have at some point interacted with the subject and therefore by internet standards I'm an expert
The wiki appears to be copied from SO, but why should the style guide be removed?
1:00 AM
@QPaysTaxes ^^ Sounds like YouTube comments section :D
The rep is 4k for now, 20k later.
@Phrancis Yes, that was the joke, thanks :D
@Hosch250 Does a tag wiki need a style guide?
It's a tag wiki
Not a guide on the language
But having a guide doesn't harm the wiki.
You're right, the whole thing is just terrible
Q: What is a tag wiki? How do I write a good one?

Ilmari KaronenAs the title says: What are tag wikis, and how do I write a good one?

> •general background information on the subject
So, that would be the history.
1:02 AM
Yes, general
Not the naming convention for global constants.
History is fine, yep, but I ditched the style guide because that's pretty darn specific
Well, I approved; I hope the mods don't mind.
Oh, crap
Wait, no Ruby site is there
Nevermind I forgot that I didn't forget anything
OK, @rolfl rejected it.
That info is useful for someone wanting to learn Ruby
Not for someone wanting to know what the tag means here
1:08 AM
Hey @Hosch250, do you wanna fill in
I could.
Holy crap I'm the number 2 asker in Ruby
You show up in the top 30 answerers for the past 30 days, which gives you some cred.... but that edit is huge....
Yeah, not really
stripping off that info is too substantuial
1:09 AM
It's removing one section
That has no place in a tag wiki
If it was a general wiki about Ruby, sure, it should be there
But in a wiki about a tag on CR? No freaking way do we need a style guide.
Well that's a strong statement, and I am not sure I agree.
do we really need an tag?
...Holy crap, Java has the same thing
Wiki tags should have anything and everything that may help.
Why do people feel the need to go so in-depth in a tag wiki
1:10 AM
seems more appropriate.
and it's 3 questions
@rolfl Sure, so they contain a link to an accepted style guide; this is the one I use
@Mat'sMug Feel free to meta it
Or a link to a LMGTFY for "Ruby style guide"
@Quill sure
@QPaysTaxes that's why you can't be trusted with wiki edits....
1:12 AM
@rolfl That's a joke.
I can't tell.
I've been an active user on SO for quite a while
You make a serious edit and a serious comment about too much detail, and then a joke, no, I missed the joke.
@rolfl Oh, fair point
Jesus this Java tag wiki is massive
Someone once said that on SE, moderation privileges seem to be granted at exactly the time you're ready to be trusted with them
1:14 AM
Anybody here know ?
Why should your edit undo all the work that Uri put in to it?
@rolfl Who's Uri?
Oh no wait I see him
He is the one who copied from SO.
@Quill You might be SOL on , it's pretty arcane here on CR... maybe try SO?
1:15 AM
Because (a) he copied with attribution, and (b) he put in way more than was necessary.
There's a LUA bounty out there, which is probably why Quill is asking
That is tricky - you have to reformat a lot of it, remove a bunch of dead links, remove SO-specific material...
I know, because I did several.
Oh, right, the Lua OOP question
(Incidentally, calling it LUA is like calling it JAVA)
@rolfl No, actually, I was asking about , but @Phrancis reminded me of the existence of SO
Is more of a concept or a language of its own?
1:17 AM
@Phrancis It's more a library, with slightly incompatible implementations in many languages
@Phrancis Concept.
@Phrancis Well, it's got dialects, but I consider it more of a concept
There are many implementations.
Pretty much all the major languages have a specific implementation to use that are similar and non-similar in various respects.
1:17 AM
I'm tempted to shove it in with library tags then
Incidentally @rolfl:
> Tag wikis are not encyclopedia articles, and defining the subject is not their main purpose.
A: What is a tag wiki? How do I write a good one?

Ilmari KaronenWhat is a tag wiki? Each tag on Stack Exchange has two pieces of user-editable content associated with it: a short tag wiki excerpt of up to about 500 characters of plain text, and a full tag wiki page describing the tag in more detail. The excerpt is the "elevator pitch" for the tag, and is...

But, maybe not. It's a pretty small tag, so not sure it matters too much. Heck, I could put it in both!
@rolfl Yes, hello, that's me
It is, and it links ruby before java, just like Uri's profile,.
1:20 AM
I'm cleaning up , should I leave the SO chatroom in?
@QPaysTaxes On Code Review, though, he's got the badges and the reputation, and your edit is what would start an edit war. If you disagree, then post a question to meta.
I agree with that ^^
Your single opinion is contrary to someone else's and the right way to resolve it is in meta.
Hm, alright
Has anyone ever realized we have 41231 tags here?
1:20 AM
@FutureReviewer: My edit on just now was really borderline
@Phrancis Ummm no.
@Phrancis 814?
Owait, I was on SO lol
@Phrancis, can you do the tag for
also SO's is empty
For some values of "do"? What do you mean?
@rolfl Should I remove the SO chatroom from the CR tag wiki for ?
1:23 AM
@Quill DO all the links work?
@Hosch250 Typically leave them, it's a resource that works
@rolfl I really don't know, feel free to reject it
@Quill If you want the "credit" for the edit, then please put in the work to do it right
Shoot, I probably shouldn't have accepted that one then.
Q: JOptionPane in MVC and Checkbox for don't show this message again

user3282568I thought about using static factors since I will have at least 5 error messages for the entire application. It could possibly grow to easily 10 error messages if I decide to. The error messages would be displayed in a JOptionPane. Would you declare this as the best method? The controller would c...

It read fine, anyway.
And I'm locked out of that queue now - probably just as well.
For the record, @rolfl, I typically don't worry about things like edit wars
...Wait crap I'm a dumbass
I just rejected two edits because I misread "tag excerpt" as "tag wiki" (or whatever the text is)
@QPaysTaxes ty
exists here, but not on SO, wat do
1:32 AM
Call our local JS guy
Q: inserting a node at a given position in a linked list - java

Sunny Rahl BabaGiven a node class like class Node { int data; Node next; } Provide an implementation to Insert a node at a specific position in a linked list Node insert(Node head, int data, int position) { Node newNode = new Node(); newNode.data = data; newNode.next = null; i...

@rolfl Straight from SO, I'll redo
I don't suppose anyone here knows Factor
Hmm, I expected JRE to be a tag here...
1:40 AM
@nhgrif ...Why?
Because I wanted to make an analogy. But no one has used .
Q: Synonymise [objective-c-runtime] with [objective-c]

QuillThe tag objective-c-runtime has 3 questions: UIScrollView Category utility function for auto sizing contentSize (0 answers) Dynamically setting unknown properties of a subclass from parent class in Objective-C (1 answer) Generic class for displaying UIAlertView / UIAlertController on iOS (1 ans...

A: Synonymise [objective-c-runtime] with [objective-c]

nhgrifThese tags should not be synonymised. I will double check the objective-c-runtime-tagged questions and be certain that they are tagged correctly, but synonymising these tags would actually be quite harmful. From the Objective-C runtime wiki: The Objective-C runtime is a runtime support libr...

@nhgrif Thanks
Also, I was the one who pasted the tag wiki content in from SO
A: Using "Next" as a Return Key

nhgrifMake sure your text fields have their delegate set and implement the textFieldShouldReturn method. This is the method that is called when the user taps the return key (no matter what it looks like). The method might look something like this: func textFieldShouldReturn(textField: UITextField) ->...

^^ Objective-C runtime.
1:49 AM
We’ve resolved the connectivity issues some of you have seen. We ran into a LACP bug on the new hardware which broke some machine’s connect.
It appears there is a daily limit on tag wiki edits that apply to Research Assistant.
@Quill Of the three questions. The first two definitely deserve the tag. The third one, well, I won't remove it, but I wouldn't have added it.
So, you guys just got a bunch of grammar edits for free ;)
Time to start flagging comments.
@Hosch250 what, noooooo
The last several haven't increased my counter.
1:51 AM
I don't think so.
@Hosch250 Yeah, I've done 48 completed today and only 14 have counted on my counter
Less than 14 here, I think.
I was above 30 when I started, and I got stuck at 44.
By the way, all of the answers to those questions you linked in that meta post are amazing @Quill. You guys should go upvote them.
A: Dynamically setting unknown properties of a subclass from parent class in Objective-C

nhgrifThis review is going to have to be in the form of a handful of questions, things perhaps you haven't considered. I don't know the answer to these, but I know they need to be answered. typeOfArgumentForSelector:(SEL)selector atIndex:(int)index and the way you use it is bothering me a little bit....

1:53 AM
Hey, that guy has the same icon as me.
A: Generic class for displaying UIAlertView / UIAlertController on iOS

nhgrifAs a start, this is confusing: - (BOOL) supportsiOS8 { Class kAlertViewClass = NSClassFromString(@"UIAlertController"); return !kAlertViewClass ? NO : YES; } There was a time when I was uncomfortable with ternary operators. They're admittedly kind of weird. I've gotten used to them, ...

@nhgrif Har, har
@rolfl Do you prefer "Hi" comments to be flagged as Not Constructive or Too Chatty?
I'm starting to think @StackExchange has disposed of my meta-post
too chatty
1:54 AM
@Mat'sMug I saw it....
just not here.
the CO runtimes are anywhere between 5 and 50 minutes
Hey, guys, you know what question has a fantastic answer? codereview.stackexchange.com/q/80543/62850
> would you rather get flooded with "not constructive" comment flags or "too chatty" comment flags?
@rolfl I answered that Meta if you want to it.
While we're "discreetly" pimping out our answers
1:55 AM
I tend to leave the ones that lead into detailed discussions and the flag the "Hi, thanks" ones - especially when the grammar is bad.
@QPaysTaxes Somebody told me not to click the blue button, sorry
@Quill Noice
Remember to attribute ;)
my -tag request? ;)
Lol, I just found one of my own too chatty comments.
Removed it.
1:56 AM
Seriously though on that answer I need one more upvote for a necro
Q: Dispose of [idisposable]?

Mat's MugThere are 3 questions tagged idisposable, one closed as off-topic, the other two featuring an IDisposable implementation. I don't think we need a tag for any specific interface of the .NET framework - that includes ienumerable, which is the only other tag I've found for a .NET interface. These ...
