@Peilonrayz That's pretty decent for a start.
> Controlling for these confounders, when a first time question asker uses the wizard, their question is about 6% more likely to be good quality and 20% less likely to be bad quality.
But that's weighed and I'm not sure whether or not they did that right. I'm not a statistician.

Q: I have a problem in post and pre increment operators in c. How the statement will be evaluated if its a + ++a + ++a

user529767For a =2, the answer is 10. But my question in unary operator is higher precedence than arithmetic operators. So why doesn't it be 12? int i = 2,b; b = i + ++i + ++i; printf("%d\n", b);

An enduranceMedal is awarded for playing long enough, usually.

6:39 PM
@dfhwze How is it off-topic? Looks on-topic to me and you've suggested a user answer it (which is only something you do to on-topic questions)
Also what context is missing? I could probably answer the question with what's there, and I know nothing about C#...
It's quite disappointing that even when asked how it's off-topic you ignored it.
@Peilonrayz I think it's slightly off-topic because there are some variables that are used in the code that we don't know what they're doing. Although I think the question could've stayed open and easily answered.
I forget we're not allowed code snippets on CR, lol
Actually hate this reason cause everyone here filpflops on it so much.
I think it's context dependent. In this case, I don't think the missing variables creates confusion regarding the context, it's clear what the code does
I previously went to meta with a question where we knew nothing, no variables were defined and all functions were undefined and people were like that's ontopic. And now one missing T foo and everyone VTC...
@JohnHarrison: next time, please post your work inside the question. Answering it yourselft either to summarize the responses and/or to show that you eventually got it is fine. But, while there is a bit of gamification here, this is not a contest; it's simply a Q & A site. Also, if you already have a working solution that you're looking to see improved, consider posting it to Code Review instead. — Scott Sauyet 57 secs ago

@Peilonrayz Depends on the weather I guess.
Yeah I know, not everyone has the same criteria for VTC. I feel like these divergences in opinions will only continue to grow with the growth of the site
Okay so, whenever a mod can take a look at this chatroom and the associated post/comments, please do : https://chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/97785/discussion-between-john-doe-and-ieatbagels

Small warning, the third user, KIKO Software, claims he's indeed been flooded by emails so I would appreciate if we could thread the situation lightly.
Because I don't feel like potentially getting flooded myself.
There's 5 missing variables, 3 of which are just sprites to be put on enduranceImage. The PlayerPrefs is as needed as the calling code if this were provided as a function leaving enduranceMedal which is the only somewhat strange thing there.
Right now the situation is defused, it'd be okay if it stayed this way, but surely this goes against community rules and I don't really know what to do about it
@Peilonrayz Yes I handled this question in an unorthodox fashion. Not my best intervention this week o_0
7:16 PM
@IEatBagels I've just read over a bit of that, yeah can a @mod (@Vogel612 @rolfl @Malachi) look into this. I think it may be above mod level tho.
7:26 PM
@IEatBagels could you point me to the location of the claim in a flag?
I just did
It's all in the post related to the chatroom I linked above
ya, I didn't spot it before
Wow...that's a lot to unpack. I suggest us 'mere mortals' (wink) let the mods do what they need to do.
the guy uses extortion tactics, that's a fellony in any country
I'm this close: '' to telling him to spam my inbox, because I know how to alert the FBI to extortionists and spammers.
But, I won't feed the troll.
7:35 PM
the guy brags about extorting ppl, and he admits on spamming a user here ... why go lighthearted about it?
I want to politely say again, let's allow the mods to handle this. (It looks like Vogel is on it.) The chatroom discussion and claims have serious consequences, so let's just drop it. Stack Exchange will do what Stack Exchange needs to do.
Yeah, I just flagged a comment.
I'm sure Vogel and SE can handle it pretty well.
And KIKO can set up an IP block or inbox rules, depending on who owns his email, to stop the emails.
Thank you @Vogel612.
~sigh why are there people like that?
For good to exist evil must also, else there would be nothing to compare it to.
7:44 PM
@Vogel612 back in the day in mIRC there were ppl that attacked entire university networks like this
@dfhwze yea I know, that doesn't answer the question.
Not that it was really a question in the first place.
more like a lamentation
It's a disappointing observation.
As I say (because one of my best friends hates the phrase): it be like that sometimes.
I'm saying the internet is full of these ppl
Anonymity is a cruel drug.
Causes people to do things they normally wouldn't due to a fear of punishment, on the internet such fear is often easy to alleviate.
It makes people feel "cool" and "powerful."
The sheer understanding that "I could ruin your life" encourages them to consider it.
Yeah the thing degenerated pretty quickly, at least he seemed to have agree to stop harassing the other user.

That's what I tried to say, it's kind of a norm
You see now why I don't comment anymore :p

@Peilonrayz FWIW your comment convinced me to retract my VTC on that sprite question... I see another user has VTC'd recently so it is back up to 3 :/ darn weather
@IEatBagels Ok so until literally just now I did not think your name was "I Eat Bagels" and I was wondering how you weren't banned. Turns out I just can't read lmfao
@DerKommissar ಠ_ಠ did you think it had an h before ate?
No. I won't share what I thought it was but I did not think the last word was "Bagels".
Because if the last word were what I thought it was, well you would understand why I was confused they were not banned.
8:47 PM
Could you add an asterisk where you misread? Because I can't see it.
Well imagine there were no "g's" in the word, and that the last 'e' was not present.
Questions about coding style would be more appropriate for Code Review. But they want you to post the full code, then they'll critique it and show better ways to write it. — Barmar 1 min ago
And there was an extra L, maybe?
8:49 PM
@dfhwze that reminds of a tattoo a former colleague has: /* no comment */
Now I am thinking of an SNL skit involving Alec Baldwin
@Peilonrayz I withdrew my close vote because of your passion, but I do feel PlayerPrefs could have been pivotal for the review. Perhaps that class could have cached some order of medal counts.
@SᴀᴍOnᴇᴌᴀ RIP :/
@dfhwze Change the first 4LOC to function (int easyMedal, int mediumMedal, int hardMedal, int insaneMedal, Sprite bronzeSprite, Sprite silverSprite, Sprite goldSprite, TMedal enduranceMedal) and I see no reason you'd need to know any more. You wouldn't need to know what Sprite is and PlayerPrefs has vanished as it has nothing to do with the CR code other than to provide some ints
8:55 PM
We could challenge why it has to vanish, or why no intermediate structure was called into existence
Yeah, but you don't need that stuff. That's just the cherry on the top of the cake.
I only hope that the commenter answers so the question could be dealt with as it should have
