Q: More idiomatic way to move item from one dict value(list) to another?

JacobIRRIs there a more idiomatic way to handle the following scenario? I'm open to lodash, etc. if needed. This does what I want, but I feel that there is probably a shortcut I'm missing: const migrateValues = (obj, srcKey, destKey, value) => { updatedSrc = []; obj[srcKey].forEach(x => { ...

Q: C# Code to Find all Divisors of an Integer

MilliornI made this so I can feed it integers and return an array with all the divisors of that integer. I put checks in in case the integer is less than 2. Order of integers in the array must be smallest to largest. The code works. What I need is to optimize this code to be as fast as possible. Rig...

Q: Refactoring try blocks with async/await

FelixI have two functions which I would like to simplify. They have largely the same logic, but one is asynchronous and uses one await in a try block. I'd like to have the logic in one place, but could not figure out a clean way of doing that. Any suggestions? from requests import get, HTTPError # D...

Could still use a better title perhaps, but at least it's reviewable now.
Sort of
@SimonForsberg I suspect this is in part due to the Welcome Wagon. There's an increased risk of being called out for nothing after leaving a comment nowadays.
 
@Mast The code is still missing context IMO. It'll probably chameleon into something else. "Oh but my actual code doesn't do that, thanks but your answer's useless"
 
@Peilonrayz The actual code is slightly different, but at least it's pointed out which part.
> Despite the simple (synchronous) dummy functions, in async_next we use asynchronous IO to retrieve things. Other than that, the situation is exactly as it is here.
It's not a great question, but with the current site scope it feels like it's within the limits now.
 
@Mast I don't believe that when cond, which did nothing, was there and is now removed.

@Peilonrayz That's fair.

11:56 AM
@Mast How do you mean? Called out for nothing for leaving a comment, how/why?
 
@SimonForsberg I was called out on meta as hostile. I asked how, they said you didn't do x. I did x.
 
@Peilonrayz What? Where? By who? How were you hostile?
 
@SimonForsberg the meta post is still up.
that being said: I think that post was because of a discrepancy in mindset and expectations
 
@Vogel612 Which meta?
 
@OliverSchönrock To be clear, I don't think you are demanding a utopia. I merely want to understand you. I am sorry, but I lack the skills to understand what makes that question on or off topic. I know I can understand comments. It may be hard, but do you have an example of a hostile comment, and could you say what makes it hostile? — Peilonrayz Jan 31 at 16:43
the somewhat all over the place question by Oliver
 
12:05 PM
@Mast What happened to the comments on that?
 
@Vogel612 @Peilonrayz Well, that guy has left the site anyway. See transcript here: chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/104009/2020/2/2
 
@Mast ~whistles
 
"Secondly I found the whole process a little hostile." What exactly did you find hostile? so we can improve and not be as hostile in the future. Do you find "vandalize" to be hostile? How could we convey the same information and not be hostile? — Peilonrayz Jan 26 at 15:20

@SimonForsberg that's not really a good reason to discount the things they said
 
12:07 PM
@Vogel612 Was there a reaction after my last comment? If not, I haven't missed anything. If there was, I have.
 
@Mast yea there was. check again, should be visible now
 
@Vogel612 This I agree with. Because who'd stay around on a site they think is hostile?
 
@SimonForsberg On top of what @Vogel said, there are a lot of people on SE that claim to have left the site yet are still logging in every day.
@Vogel612 Ah, thanks.
That actually makes kind-of sense.
Also an important detail to post correctly.
 
@Vogel612 Sure, absolutely. But read through the transcript there. Personally I felt like I was getting nowhere. Sadly, I guess neither did he. I told him that I absolutely agreed with parts of what he said, but I also disagreed with some of his conclusions.
 
yea, I already read that transcript :)
 
12:11 PM
@Peilonrayz I think this comment captures a lot:
 
there's a few good reasons in there to at least put less importance on what they said
 
@Peilonrayz as a new site user a better method of policing the changes to code would be to advise the user on how to reach their goal - the 'why' they make the change, rather than just blanket undoing a change. It felt as though there's one correct way and everything else gets reverted. Not saying this is the case, just how it felt as a new site users. — user6916458 Jan 26 at 15:51
I see a lot of comments about "The rule is that (...)" or "You should (...)" or "You should not (...)", but very often these comments fail in capturing why it is like that. I think this leads to us being seen bad.
 
@Vogel612 Here's my comment
@SimonForsberg Like sure comments can probably be improved, but apparently trying my best isn't good enough. Why bother trying to comment, when one mistake causes you to be labeled toxic?
 
@Peilonrayz Because a culture where nobody comments is even more toxic.
We can all make mistakes every now and then.
 
@SimonForsberg Either way I'm toxic so why not go for the easiest option?
 
12:19 PM
@Peilonrayz Please don't give up...
 
Every week it takes a conscious effort to not give up, you know that?
3
I'm still willing to put in that effort, don't get me wrong, but it's not a good sign.
I want this site to survive too much not to put in that effort. But there are times I have to fight the urge to say "Sod them all, someone else can clean up the crap today".

I'm glad Toby, Sam and Graipher are still helping in the queues. Would be a mess if the 4 of us left all of a sudden. Stephen, forsvarir, alex, all people making sure the site doesn't go under.

@Peilonrayz Ouch.
 
Good question :) But I don't know. "Best practices" questions would be on topic, but maybe you indeed are better off with this on Code Review. Mind, it's hard enough to get to see any good question at the mo, as my front page is currently running over with 1 Reps' "plz explain this codez" and "waht is this error". — usr2564301 1 min ago
