@Peilonrayz Don't use this ridiculous hyperbole. The question clearly asks for a better way to DRY up the code. The code works and the op wants to find a better way to do that, all of which codereview claims to want — Eyeslandic 13 secs ago

@Mast I’m guessing these are similar but different type of “fluff”:
Not really a big fan of cookies, btw. — Jesse C. Slicer Feb 3 '16 at 23:06
If I needed more flags I might flag those (or the post) and mark them as “no longer needed”
4:16 AM
@SᴀᴍOnᴇᴌᴀ @Peilonrayz I see it happen more and more and I'm not sure it's worth the effort to fight it. Fluff in comments is not much of a problem since comments aren't supposed to last forever, but traditionally it has no place in questions and answers. They're just a distraction.
But if enforcing a network wide policy that has been in part undone already may take more effort than it's worth while alienating users, yeah, not a fan of that either.

possible answer invalidation by starrk on question by starrk: codereview.stackexchange.com/posts/247412/revisions
@CaptainObvious One more VTC please.
@Duga Rolled back.
I've been using a variation on the standard comment more and more to focus less on invalidation and more on "don't touch the code after receiving answers, period".
Please do not update the code in your question after receiving answers, doing so goes against the Question + Answer style of Code Review. This is not a forum where you should keep the most updated version in your question. Please see what you may and may not do after receiving answers. — Mast 1 min ago
It doesn't look pretty, but at least it's very clear.
Considering the language barriers we sometimes see on this site, I think that's a win.

@Mast IDK the proper word for it but 'flowery'/'positive vibes' fluff I'm fine with. Anything for a better UX. But noise like "thanks"/"EDIT:" can just get nuked from orbit
But yeah, sometimes it's just not worth the effort
@Mast Yeah, I've not been a fan of the standard AI comment. Your comment seems good, do you know of any links we could provide to cite "doing so goes against the Question + Answer style of Code Review"? I think it's a bit lost in that second link
I'm not sure stackoverflow might be the best place for this. It's meant for relatively specific questions. Sounds like you're wanting a code review (codereview.stackexchange.com) and you probably want to look at the library pandas (which you have kinda implied) and something like plotly for data viz. — AaronS 21 secs ago
I don't fully agree with 'Anything for a better UX' since it there's a different UX for new users, veteran users and passers-by which makes a good call for one possibly a bad call for another, but if you call for trying to be flexible with policy not to scare people away, absolutely.
If that makes sense, I may be running low on coffee.
@Peilonrayz Not sure, perhaps it needs another answer in that thread to make it more explicit?
I agree "Anything for a better UX" is not the optimum wording. From your explination I think we understand each other. I think we agree here
We tend to do that a lot lately.
Now I'm worried.
9:14 AM
@Mast Hmm. Possibly, IDK what SE's best practices around this are and all the Meta "gurus" (200, Simon, Mat) have mostly stopped meta activity on CR, with there being no "meta mod" if that makes sense. So IDK the proper procedure.
9:25 AM
@Peilonrayz With a lot of the 'old guard' inactive or less-active, I think it's down to you, me and Vogel now. I know for a fact Mat is still a regular on meta, so we could ask him if there's any doubt. SE doesn't have procedures about FAQs, that's up to the sites themselves AFAIK, curated by the moderators.
I could be wrong, but it seems there's no FAQ on FAQs
I'll ask the lot in the Tavern.
I think I need some coffee, you summed up like 2 lines of text in 5 words. And made it tons more sensitive
That sounds about right
9:42 AM
A FAQ is definitely community-curated. If you post a poor answer on a FAQ question, it can be downvoted and eventually removed.
The indented procedure is for a high-quality meta post to become FAQ, but I see nothing that prohibits adding fresh answers to an old FAQ entry.
I can imagine most communities are much more strict with answers to FAQ posts than to other meta posts, nothing wrong with that.
But there's a good situation here, I think.
As in, a good reason to add an answer.
We could always make it a new question if you prefer.

Yeah, what you've said sounds accurate and correct. I don't think anyone would be too strict on what we're suggesting. It seems like some missing, but potentially very important (to make users empathise with us) info.
I would guess an answer would be ok. In a perfect would we'd expand on the "In addition..." section and link to it. But given the Markdown limitations an answer seems like the next best solution
9:57 AM
Yea, there's no paragraph support yet.
Paragraph-linking, whatever it's called. The think I so often abuse in PDFs.
I go to edit it to see if we can hack it in with ids and the preview is foobar cause they didn't migrate the markdown to the new one
Seems like they just cached everything so nothing breaks. But whether it's actually broke or not is a different story
They did indeed cache posts, it will be rendered with the new engine on edit. I'm not sure why some posts got migrated while others were cached, but I'm sure there's an MSE post on it.
More info here.
Given I've not followed and just learnt about this. I'd assume there's no point in migrating something that hasn't been edited in 3 or so years.
This migration won't enable header IDs. This migration is already a big thing so we don't want to conflate adding new features with running the migration itself. Both, markdown-it and markdig support header IDs via plugins so implementing this feature will now be easier than before - but it remains a different discussion. — Ham Vocke ♦ Jun 1 at 12:05
@Peilonrayz Some of the old posts were already compliant with CommonMark so didn't need migration.
@Mast I mean the ones that aren't - that would need to be migrated
@Mast Yeah... :(

I was looking for an example of a migration on an old post, but it seems most if not all of my answers were already compliant.

@πάνταῥεῖ I don't know C++. It's lacking a description of what the code does but otherwise it seems fine
May I ask why you ask? Do you think it's potentially off-topic / not sure?
@Peilonrayz Yes, exactly.
The OP elaborated about their doubts, and finally wants to know, if the code they wrote uses polymorphism or not.
7:08 PM
@πάνταῥεῖ Hmm, I've reread the comments, I don't really understand them, and I'm still interpreting them as the OP asking if their code is 'correct' - which it seems you said is not the case. (Note not in the broken sense) I think we've talked about this before on meta and I think even with your interpretation it's on-topic. But my memory is a bit hazy here.
Personally I'd just convert the comments to an answer, get some rep and call it a day

You're interleaving accesses by each thread? No wonder performance is worse!! L2 spatial prefetch tries to complete adjacent pairs of lines. Also cache aliasing, only using 1/4 of the sets. The standard way to parallelize is to have separate threads write contiguous ranges of outputs. (Also, you missed my point about how to indent asm. You still have all the instructions in the left-most column, not indented relative to labels. See this codereview for good style.) — Peter Cordes 45 secs ago
