Q: Homework assignment - trigger syntax issues

Dennis KimDisclaimer: this is a homework assignment, but I'm only seeking hints for syntax issues. Otherwise, I think I've got the substance (assuming syntax errors don't necessitate a change to the guts). Goal: creating a trigger (for this question, the trigger NewContract is causing the problem, but my ...

Q: Scrabble Scorer in Python

pythonier500I made this Scrabble with care since it will be mainly used by family that will not understand the error codes so that is why I catch basically every possible error, to make it user friendly. I have revised this based on an earlier post and hope to improve its efficiency even more now that I hav...

@CaptainObvious Setting __name__ = "end" in an attempt to escape infinite recursion; that's one hell of a hack, sheesh.

There's a number of non-idiomatic aspects to this code. Once you have a working solution, I encourage you to seek out holistic review of your code on Code Review. — Shepmaster 8 secs ago

Q: Elm spa structure

James SchinnerThis code is a working example of an Elm application (0.19.1) that is spread over two files. The idea is to have a file for each page of the app and have the Main.elm file import and connect the pages (exactly the same idea as the elm spa example) This is a bare bones example, that I intend to b...

Ram AlsaifiI'm new to JavaScript and came across classes in ES6. Though they are great, I don't want to learn something that can be done in other ways. So, I created this code that does somehow similar job to what classes in JS do. Please give me feedback on whether classes does more than what I think they ...

Q: Is it safe to use Super global variable $_POST in PDO QUERY

sanoj lawrencei use the following code to filter data from SQL and it works fine, and below code is vulnerable to SQL injection but all the $post values are checkbox value(its not user input) so can i use below code. Or do i need to use prepared statement as per the answer https://stackoverflow.com/a/14767651...

2:15 PM
@Mast Oh my!
@Mast Evidently I've not read it yet, but my view is that there's two groups; the meta people that think one way, and the closers that think another. At the end of the day the closers have the power, not me. I'll read over it now to see if that's taken into account :)
@Peilonrayz If you mean there's stubborn people out there voting with the wrong reason, yes, I think I mentioned that.
@Mast Ah good good. I think this'll be a good read. IDK if I can suggest anything then. :(

This place isnt meant for extensive code reviews. As said: it is best that you find real humans willing to sit down with you. Alternatively, see codereview.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic ... and then write up a question that fits that community, to ask for feedback on specific aspects of your code. — GhostCat says Reinstate Monica 7 secs ago
@pacmaninbw Clarified the question based on your comment. Better?
If not, I'll make more edits.
Code review questions should normally be considered off-topic on stackoverflow. The main goal of SO is to be an archive of solved problems that programmers are likely to encounter. Most code review questions are only useful to the original asker, and will likely never be useful to anyone else. — James Reinstate Monica Polk 58 secs ago

@CaptainObvious Poster is apparently banned on SO, and is asking a how to question here.

@Mast Lol, I didn't even see that until now. 😅😂
Been far too long since I've had this view on my screen:
This might actually be the first code I've written in 2019 ^^
@Kaz VBA?
@pacmaninbw Very much so.
I try really hard not to develop anything these days, but I had a spare couple of hours, and there's a manually intensive client-based spreadsheet report that takes up a significant amount of the admin team's time, so I figured I'd throw something together.
@Kaz Probably 3 years since I've used it. Haven't had to work in excel for a while.

Perhaps this will come after we've all brainstormed a little about it.

Qt uses C++ as it's language. Also, what is your question specifically? I see a bunch of code in front of me but I am not sure what you are specifically stuck on. If you want us to review your code you're on the wrong forum. There is a code review stack. — Sailanarmo 59 secs ago

Some of you may have noticed that I let my 6-year streak of daily appearances on Code Review lapse earlier this month, and my participation has been minimal since then. I was thinking of writing a goodbye message on Meta CR, but decided that it wouldn't be worth the effort.
I'll just leave this as a parting statement:

@200_success I wish you the best 200
7:50 PM
@Mast thanks for writing this up, been discussing LCC among moderators lately. One problem is the LCC-happy close-voters. The other problem is close queue reviewers rubberstamping LCC close votes that should have never been cast in the first place.
@MathieuGuindon Please pardon my ignorance. How are they not the same problem?
one particular LCC-happy close voter does not do close queue reviews
but they're very often the first one to cast a LCC vote
Ah that makes sense :)
LCC-happy close voters wouldn't be a problem without rubberstamping going on in the review queues
recently there was a bunch of posts from 2013-2015 in the close queue, answered questions voted LCC and comments asking for clarifications 6 years later, on an answered question.
makes us look like a bunch of stuck-up elitist clowns
8:08 PM

Better fit on Code ReviewAmy 28 secs ago
@ca9163d9 Hence my use of the word "better". I never said it doesn't fit on SO. I said it's a better fit on Code ReviewAmy 43 secs ago
10:02 PM
@Amy FYI Code Review will have a very hard time working with code that has // ... comments all over the place, and routinely closes this kind of post within minutes. It would be a better fit on CR if OP was interested in feedback on any/all aspects of the code - this is just an out-of-context snippet with nested conditional logic, stripped to a bare illustrative minimum. As it stands this is absolutely NOT a better fit for CR. — Mathieu Guindon 48 secs ago
