This is just a skeleton o...

I made a few (relatively minor, but not meaningless) updates to my code, and my question has no answers yet, is it fair to edit my question in part to bump it?
The Help Center described "progress updates" as being acceptable reasons to update while your question isn't answered, but to me that seems a little vague in the context of CodeReview.SE

@naiveai maybe you already saw this meta post (given that you are here) but if not, perhaps the answers will provide helpful tips
Q: Dealing with a question with no answer

Q: Is it allowed to edit code if there is no answer?

L. FarosIf I have kept working on the code, and there are no answers (say one week after the original post), am I allowed to edit the code to reflect the changes I have made to it? I believe this question is closely related (yet not a dupe, I hope) to: Is it okay to modify code in a post if we've disc...

Looking at the info for top users it appears that there have been 12 questions asked and 6 answers provided in the last 30 days
There was one answer 3 days ago but the next youngest answer was submitted on 10/17
also this time of day is often a time of low activity in this room - there will likely be users from Europe coming online within a few hours
but activity lately has been lower in general in recent weeks and months
Yeah, I'd expect that given the holiday season, I was just clarifying because the meta posts seemed somewhat vague with respect to this precise concern.

For example, in case of obvious non-answers, or if answers arrive before the question is answerable.

We don't know what it is you're asking about. Are you having a problem? If you're just looking for someone to say "This looks good", then this is not the place for it. StackOverflow is for asking specific questions and getting answers. You might get what you're looking for at codereview.stackexchange.com. — Andy Lester 47 secs ago
2:38 PM
"get", "set" in what context exactly? We've no idea specifically how you've implemented it now, in order to say whether your approach is out of date or whatever, or what advantage you might think you'd gain by your (also vague) alternative suggestion. And anyway "newer" or "better" or "ideas" is subjective. This isn't a code review site. If your code works and doesn't have obvious security flaws, then we're largely not interested in it. There is a separate Code Review site where you might be able to ask this kind of thing - but please check their guidance first before you do. — ADyson 53 secs ago

Please consider to post your question on CodeReview if it is working but you are looking for general improvements. See their help pages for how to ask on-topic questions, though.

@Jagger when suggesting users post on CR it would be great if there was also a suggestion like "Please read the relevant help center pages like 'What topics can I ask about here?' and 'How do I ask a good question?". In the current form the code above would likely be closed as off-topic because it is missing context, and there is no indication that the code belongs to the OP. — Sᴀᴍ Onᴇᴌᴀ 36 secs ago

@skiwi Hey Skiwi. How many tabs are you on these days?
Greetings, Programs.
@Duga Doesn't seem to be a problem.
4:08 PM
I've been trying to keep the number of open tabs down. I only have about 100 in four windows on two monitors.
@Donald.McLean Are they all relevant to what you are currently working on?
@Kaz 3095
Have been at about 3000 for a few months now actually, it stabilized a bit
I've retagged most of the parse.com questions, do we still need a synonym? If I complete the retagging before that, the tag will probably disappear. @Vogel612
if you suggest it, I can approve it.
IIRC the tag remains for a bit after the last question is gone
@pacmaninbw Sites/pages I read regularly, documentation for technologies that I am actively using, JIRA tickets I am working on, pages of training I'm working on, the GitLab server hosting my code, the Jenkins server that builds my code. That's probably about 95% of them. There's probably a few abandoned tabs that will eventually be closed.
4:24 PM
I started using a philosophy with tabs of not getting attached, if I didn't bookmark it clearly it isn't that important.
In the same concept, at work all our JIRA tickets self-delete if they've been in the backlog for more than 90 days.

While we're on the subject of tags and synonyms, there's this Salesforce-issue that's getting stale.

6:28 PM
@DerKommissar I don't see us ever having self deleting tickets - our priorities are in constant flux and we might not get to something for a couple of years, but we have to keep it on the books so that everyone knows that we know that they know that it's still there and we'll get to it when we can.
I also responded on CodeReview, if you want we can close this topic here and continue there. — Finomnis 35 secs ago
@DerKommissar Yea, or store them otherwise. I have an Excel with sorted hyperlinks.
@Malachi How're you doing anyway?
6:43 PM
@pacmaninbw We treat our board like a physical board, so much like how a sticky note would fall off a whiteboard, we let tickets "age away".
@Donald.McLean It's not for everyone, works for us because we're user-centric developers, so all our tickets are "someone needs this." If something sits in the backlog too long we let it go away.
Like SE does with flags after 2 weeks.
@Donald.McLean Exactly. At the companies where I've previously worked that's exactly how we did it.
If someone brings it up the timer on the ticket restarts, so it's not a big deal.
Basically, "is this something customers quit caring about? Let it go away then."
Makes sense in some contexts.
Regulations in our industry change constantly, so some things just "go away" anyway. (I.e. we had customers request a feature in Jan that VISA and MasterCard advised us was impossible in April or so.)
Again, not for everyone, but it works for us and it prevents the backlog from growing indefinitely.
I've seen backlogs with literal thousands of tickets / issues in them...it's impossible to manage those.
We also prioritize tickets by how many individual customers have requested it, but every request counts as a "refresh" on the ticket (I think they just add a comment and use the last comment date).
6:55 PM
Definitely not the worst system out there.
Well it works for us, I wouldn't recommend it in places like Don's because they have completely different organizational needs than we do.
It's also only for the backlog from what I understand, which means once something is moved elsewhere it sticks around.
Change: while (temp->pLink != NULL) into while (temp != NULL). When it works go get a code review at: codereview.stackexchange.com — Martin York 6 secs ago

7:52 PM
@Mast I am doing well. working a lot, it's our busy season right now
we actually did a purge of our "BUG" project, all the Low, Lowest, and I think the Mediums got closed in a mass action
then after a while we created a new project called "DEFECT"
along with it came a new process.
the idea of closing those tickets was that the real issues would surface again, a lot of them were 1+ years old, they weren't getting resolved and were causing people to tell QA to Retest
the Director is trying to implement Defect/Bug Caps for each Product Development Team, but it's a mess. we will get there one day
