Since your code works you'll want to post it on codereview.stackexchange.com. They review working code and suggest improvements, whereas Stack Overflow is for help fixing broken code. — John Kugelman 15 secs ago
No worries. It's a subtle distinction I'll admit. The reason for it is that here we like questions that allow for direct, focused answers. Code review tends to lead to broad answers that cover a multitude of improvements and suggestions. That's why a separate site was set up, and why your question was closed as "needs to be more focused". Cheers! — John Kugelman 51 secs ago

Q: Recursive function for bubble sort

AlexI often see nested loops as a solution to the bubble sort, but my solution involves a recursive function. Is the following solution less efficient than the traditional method? public static int[] BubbleSort(int[] arrayOfValues) { var swapOccurred = false; for (var i = 0; i < arrayOfV...

Q: Income tax rate calculator in c++

stupidQuestionsI have been trying to learn c++ for the sake of being comfortable with a second language.

I create a std::map<double, std::string>, which will represent the tax rate as a double, ...

Q: Is this way of formatting any piece of code readable or just convoluted

Iñaki UlibarriI've started to get far more familiar with C (and coding in general) and the way to use function to my advantage to create more complex programs. As a way of doing something actually useful instead of my "Starting Programming with C: For Dummies" book I decided to make a simple program to help me...

Thanks for the feedback, @LaurenzAlbe. So far, the only real concern has to do with data leakages because of cross-schema queries. It's not really a concern as it can be mitigated by good code reviews, but the possibility that it could happen still exists. Perhaps the only real question here is the second one, as the first question seems to be the right way to go about it. When we have data that is meant to be shared, does it make sense to duplicate it or use a cross-schema query? — John 58 secs ago

5:15 AM
Code Review Stack Exchange may be more suitable for a “how to improve this working code” question. But without asking about specific improvement, this is off-topic everywhere. What exactly do you want to improve? Why? What’s wrong with having two functions? If each does the job described by their name, then everything is semantically correct. — Sebastian Simon 15 secs ago

@Duga Both seem fine.
5:56 AM
@SᴀᴍOnᴇᴌᴀ Yes. Considering the state of the question though, I'm not sure anything has to be done about it.
One of the people who voted to close still answered it.
That's always a bit curious.

My hero! Defaulting to unknown was a very bad idea, I will avoid it in the future. I am eager to find ways to reduce the amount of type-annotation code I need to write, or to find type-level reusable abstractions, for it distracts me a lot. We just turned a one line obviously correct abstract function into a ~10 lines long non-trivial concrete function, not to mention that unit test should double-check everything we did. I expressed a similar discomfort in code review here if you want to have a look. — geoffrey 33 secs ago

@Duga rolled back
10:58 AM
@AndrewL64 Code Review is not a migration target because Stack Overflow does not know CR's rules. Please do not close questions because CR exists. Otherwise we get into situations where on-topic SO questions are closed and the user is told to post an off-topic question CR. Pretty toxic. Code on CR must be working as intended, and the code doesn't, "I need to search an array that has 4,000 objects". — Peilonrayz 14 secs ago

@CaptainObvious How to?
@CaptainObvious @Peilonrayz Does this question work as expected and is it only a performance review which means it is a legit code review question? It is currently in the Close Vote Queue.
@pacmaninbw The code should run fine. (I have not run the code) So the question being CNWAI is not correct. The code isn't really a 'benchmark library' but the code is benchmarking a bunch of requests. Overall I don't believe the CV for CNIONWAI is correct.
And as you've said; code not working with regard to performance is allowed on CR.

3:37 PM
@Mast: Stack Overflow (and StackExchange in general) have a reputation for being a bunch of A-holes who care more about enforcing arbitrary rules than actually helping anybody. In particular, demanding that beginners learn lots about the structure of SO/SE, how questions should be asked, etc., before answering questions. This question clearly doesn't fit here so it should be closed. But demanding that the OP jump through (what they see as) flaming hoops to get help is bad too. IMO, the optimal route is to help them, then close the question (and advise them what to do next time). — Jerry Coffin 11 mins ago
@Mast :/
@Zeta Love the poem. VTC+1.
@CaptainObvious Closed.
3:56 PM
Can anyone in this room tell me why they haven't VTCed this question?. The code isn't working as needed.
Specifically the player class can't be updated with new statistics.
@pacmaninbw looks like the user know the code is bad and is asking how to make the code better?
@pacmaninbw I'm not convinced it is CNWAI... I see the title originally had a "how to" question in it that has since been removed... but then in the description it contains this question "How can I manage stats in a clean way with my approach if it's possible? Otherwise I will refactor."
Look at the original title. How to. Look at my comments.
The code needs setters as well as getters.
4:01 PM
@pacmaninbw I've been on mobile the entire day and hadn't seen it yet.
Does that answer your question?

@afreelunch You are asking what is recommended. Different people recommend different things for different reasons. The question is off-topic as opinion-based because you have not provided an objective metric by which to answer your question. Stack Overflow likewise does not deal with theoretical problems, but rather practical ones that you are actually facing. If you want input on whether your programming style/habits are good, consider softwareengineering.stackexchange.com instead.
