Well, I make a point to vote (usually up) on questions I answer, and every answer to my questions get a vote.
 
So, if you get 10 answers, to 5 questions, and you answer 20 questions, then I would expect you to have voted 30 times, and accepted 5 answers.
That makes 35 expected times you should have given feedback.
 
And what would be my feedback ratio, then?
 
If your actual sum of votes, and accepts, is 35, then your feedback ratio is 1.0.
 
Oh. I'm at 7.5.
How does that work?
 
That means you have voted on 7.5 times as many posts than you are expected to.
 
5:01 AM
Does that mean I've voted 7.5 times more than my activity would "require"?
I see.
Well, I'm vote-capping every day, lately.
 
Yeah, so you are giving feedback on many more things than the base expectations.
(which is good, very good).
 
I still think I make too many mistakes to be a moderator.
And I'm on the third page.
 
Anyone with a feedback ratio of > 1.0 is voting more than whay I personally consider to be a minimum
 
I won't run until I get at least 20k, and probably not then.
 
Meh, things will change before elections arrive....
 
5:03 AM
 
and, if you are interested, you could get there in..... 6 months.
 
I'm trying!
 
Thanks. I voted off-topic, but he said it worked.
So I retracted my vote.
 
I understand, they were wrong, and you were right, but the system is unforgiving.
 
5:13 AM
What is that for?
 
That is the reputation graph of the top-18 users on Code Review, over time.
 
Oh, I see.
 
Note that, between november and april (6 months), I went from 0 to 20,000
 
I see.
I have to do school, but I guess you had to do work.
 
Note also, that janos, in green, has flown up the charts, from 5K to 35K in about 8 months.
 
5:31 AM
shamelessly shilling the answer I just gave to a question because I think it's sort of nice :p
http://codereview.stackexchange.com/a/78843/12229
 
I agree, it's nice ^^^^
Now, why just the one? ;-)
 
Me too.
Working to catch up to you in voting percentage, @Mat'sMug
 
@AlexisKing In your section on the warnings.... when I compiled the code, I got a few more.....:
panabox:~/xxx/crev> gcc -o carr -Wall --ansi carr.c
carr.c: In function ‘initArr’:
carr.c:8:5: warning: format ‘%d’ expects argument of type ‘int’, but argument 2 has type ‘long unsigned int’ [-Wformat]
carr.c: In function ‘printArr’:
carr.c:24:5: warning: return from incompatible pointer type [enabled by default]
 
@rofl The others dropped out once I made the other changes, I think.
 
OK, just saying.
 
5:34 AM
Anyway, I've mostly been spending my time on SO, but I hit rep cap and ran out of votes and close votes yesterday, so I'm thinking about spending a little more time over here. :)
 
We're big on being welcoming and friendly, so feel welcome to join in, and bring your friends.... ;-)
But you knew that already... member for years ;-)
 
Mhmm, never really did anything, though
abused the early days when I could ask silly questions that were wholly off-topic and get answers >:D
then more or less left
I asked a question on Racket a few weeks ago, and after I got no answers, I put a 50 rep bounty on it
It expired and I didn't get anything. :<
I guess niche tags are a little too small on CR
 
Monking @all
Thanks for the edit @rolfl
 
Hi, @Heslacher
 
hey @Hosch250
 
5:45 AM
So, I wrote a comment to you on your answer.
In essence, I have to open the menu to get the correct menu items loaded for the second selection if I try to go back to a menu item in a menu that is not open.
I am using the switch for that, but I don't like it.
 
@Hosch250, About your question. Why don't you fill the ItemList at the start of the application so you will have all MenuItems in the list ?
 
Well, they are drop-down menus, and I can't use a TreeView because I don't have access to TreeViews in Windows Store apps.
The ItemList is what is currently being displayed.
Like this screenshot:
 
Ah, now I understand. But what is doing this

CurrentItem = ItemList[ItemList.IndexOf(Back[0])];
?
 
That is what selects the menu item after the menu is opened.

Q: Dividing a set of numbers in to two sets such that sum of elements in each set must be equal

Alok Mishrai have made a java program for following problem statement - "Dividing a set of numbers in to two sets such that sum of elements in each set must be equal " input: array of integers output: "Yes"-if set can be divided in to two equal sum, "No" -if can not be divided in to two eq...

 
5:49 AM
The switch is not always run, but that is.
 
@Heslacher That question, and your answer to it, are being considered as a replcement in the 'tour': codereview.stackexchange.com/tour
 
:19762085 So, what is this doing

ItemList[ItemList.IndexOf(MenuItem.CreateMenuItem(resourceFile.GetString("MainMenu"), typeof(WindowsData.MainMenu), Menus.WSMainMenu))];
 
Nothing certain yet, but the tour question needs to fit within some strict requirements, and that question is one of very few questions, that meet those requirements.
 
In the switch? That is opening the Main Menu.
 
@rolfl I feel excited ...
 
5:50 AM
Because I new everything, I have to use IndexOf to find the right item in the ItemList.
I overrode .Equals.
 
It's something the SE folk asked us moderators to help with, we're shortlisting things. That's all.
 
So, pretend I am in the Text Menu, and I try to go back to the Main Menu.
 
(so, if you can think of small improvements your answer needs, now may be a good time, but the answers have to be less than 800 chars... ;-)
 
The switch will open the Main Menu, then below the switch, the correct item will be selected.
If I am already in the Main Menu when I try to select a value, the switch is never run to reopen it.
 
@Hosch250 As I read it, it is accessing the MenuItem which is in the ItemList.
 
5:53 AM
question with broken code
http://codereview.stackexchange.com/questions/78844/dividing-a-set-of-numbers-in-to-two-sets-such-that-sum-of-elements-in-each-set-m
 
Well, it actually selects it.
In front of that, it has CurrentItem = .
 
Ahh ObservableCollection, changing an item will trigger some action we can't see.
 
CurrentItem is bound to the selected value in the ListBox, which will update and programatically call NewSelection.
Then, NewSelection finishes, and my menu is opened.
Sorry I didn't include that before.
But yes, it starts calling things all over that I didn't realize were that related.
When I wrote the question, that is.
 
So this switch has sideeffects one wouldn't expect. Maybe you should post a follow up where the relevant code is also in the question.
 
Yes, should I delete that question as it is unanswerable, maybe?
 
6:00 AM
@Hosch250 @rolfl what is the best option here ??
 
I have to get ready for bed PRESTO, but I'll be back in the morning.
Please ping me with what you think I should do.
 
Hmmm...
 
@Hosch250 it is morning ;-) at least in my timezone
 
My feeling is that an accept on the answer is the right thing, then a rework of the code and a follow-on question if needed.
Changing the code on the quesiton is not an option.
Adding context code to the question would be possible as a last resort.
Malachi also has an answer which will be impacted.
My preference would still be to incorportate the changes/suggestions that have value, then ask a follow on.
Everyone gets another opportunity for more rep that way too.

because?
 
Oh, I am reading up on it some more.
my advice is for ubuntu.... where I believe ffmpeg is avconv
Actually, my advice is to read up on which one you have, and what the differences will mean to you.
 
did that months ago, was interested to see how informed your opinion was
 
Regardless, changing the -v warning or -v error is a good place to start with the spamming to stderr,

Q: Core Data model for test-taking iOS app

Here are some of my assumptions: Each User can take multiple tests Each User has one set of answers per Tes...

Off-topic...?
I'm confused whether that's a database model or a class diagram he's got there
@SimonAndréForsberg anything wrong with editing the typo?
 
@Pimgd gray-topic
 
and the comment?
 
@Pimgd Editing code is something I don't think should be done unless you're really sure what you're doing and have full editing rights. It would have been much better off as a comment (or a separate answer as the editor didn't have the rep, in which case it would have been converted to a comment).
 
hmmhm, I've made the typo fixes myself
 
12:48 PM
good, then I assume the editor did in fact know what he was doing
 
Core data is somewhere in between DB and object...
 
well I dunno about the code change
 
@Pimgd skipping the suggested edit might have been a better option, which I might have done if the user had a bit more reputation.
 
Technically, it's backed by SQLite, but that's inconsequential. And core data will let you autobuild classes out of the data objects you create.
 
TBH I think it's a Programmers question.
"Here's the code I want to create from my database design, but I think there's something wrong with it. Do I even need to make classes for join tables?"
 
12:54 PM
It's not strictly a database design though...
 
Here is my Core Data model:

enter image description here

Overall, what do you think of my database schema?
 
Really, it's more of a way to make saving your objects easier and more efficient.
 
It's being treated AS a database design.
 
That doesn't make it a database design though.
 
... ?
 
12:56 PM
CoreData is more like UML.
 
Well if it was an ERD, it'd still be suitable for programmers
 
But where UML is just the visualization of the design, CoreData has some meat to it and will auto create your class and manage the saving of these classes for you in a very efficient manner.
 
Does this matter for the questions posed by the asker?
- What do you think of my database schema?
- Do I need Test_Questions and User_Answers?
the first one is just plain off-topic.
That's not code.
 
I don't know. I'm just trying to educate you on CoreData. The first one isn't plain off topic.
I regularly comment on people's structure. Missing classes, extra classes.
And when you ask about your CoreData "database scheme" that's what you're asking about.

Q: Reviewing "design"

Simon André ForsbergIt has been said in various comments that on Code Review we review code and not design. I find this statement not very clear though. Obviously, if someone has an UML and not any written code, that's off-topic on Code Review. However, if there is a question with a finished implementation, such a...

 
1:02 PM
Everything in CoreData is a class in your code base represented by objects.
We may need a meta expressly for CoreData.
 
I think it's just a fancy UML diagram.
 
CoreData is written code.
It's not.
You do CoreData through Xcode. You're actually creating classes when you do it.
 
why are the classes not in the question
 
If you want to close the question as off topic as a design only question, open a meta, and this evening I will educate CR more completely on CoreData.
Otherwise leave it open or close it for another reason.
 
I'm finding it strange that a valid answer to the question as posed is "Everything that you have posted; delete it; then alter the other classes you've made to directly point to each other"
 
1:06 PM
I don't know If the answer is valid or not
Moreover, how can an answer make the question off-topic?

I guess that feeling of mine then makes for a shitty argument
hmmh.
But I am getting the feeling that the spirit of the question is not a code-review one
it's a design-review one
okay meta up

> His main argument, as I understand it, is that CoreData models are code-backed. That is, when you change the CoreData model, you change the code. Like this, a CoreData model represents the code.
 
Guys,
Can you post a whole Application to be reviewed on Code Review?
 
... yes ... ?
What makes you think it could be no?
 
The comment was directed at skimmers like me.
 
Oh, I have a GitHub
 
1:33 PM
@HassanAlthaf you have to include the code in the question.
 
Can you link it to GitHub because I don't think it would be smart if I copy paste so many files.
Oh, what is the max character limit? its a whole accounting system
 
(Additionally, you should be aware that by posting all the code, the advice would be divided across all the code, and not be as focused)
 
Oh, I'm alright with it.
github.com/HassanAlthaf/AccountingSystem
I wanna get all that reviewed.
Like after its done.
 
Max char limit is 30k
 
Got a bit more to do
Oh, I dont think it would be enough, lmao
 
1:34 PM
If you use all 30k for code,
your question will not get answered
nobody wants to read that much
 
lol
Software Analyst?
They can get experience for that title
Anyway, thanks.
 
Trying to be a bit serious here
If you post a whole ton of code I'll just perform a mental lint check on it
If you post a single algorithm it'll get a lot more scrutiny
 
If your entire accounting system is under 30k lines of code, it might be incomplete.
3
Err, 30k characters even...
 
@SimonAndréForsberg: That answer seemed more like a link-only answer.
 
But a question with only code and no plain English description will probably be closed as an unclear what you're asking code dump.
 
1:44 PM
@Jamal might have seemed like it, but it also seems like it is precisely what the OP wanted. It also contains a few "keywords" which makes it a valid answer IMO.
 
I'll have the other mods take a look at it.
 
@Jamal Alternatively, the answer can be edited and improved, or a comment added on it
 
Also, I don't necessarily disagree that the question should be closed @Pimgd but I think it is important we are more clear on CoreData versus UML and very explicit about why we are closing this (if we are)
 
I don't think CoreData is a substitute for code

I'm OK with that too.
short answers are a gamble. My feeling is that it really paid off and provided a huge value for the OP.
It was exactly the right feedback he needed.
It is also why Code Review works well, because context is so important.
If this was a fizzbuzz, or a linked-list, etc. the obviosu purpose is to use the code to learn. But, in this case, the purpose is to accomlish a goal beyond just a "because I can", and if someone has already done the work, then it's good to give that feedback.

If we don't accept this answer we will need to do a large clean up. One of our high rep user was providing that sort of feedback (here for example codereview.stackexchange.com/a/57079)
 
well, apply link rot.
Basically only the first line is useful.
 
And, that first line makes it a valid answer.
The rest of it is supporting material.
 
It makes it not-not an answer
 
Agreed, the decision between a comment and an answer is that, though.
whether the answer is a good, or bad one, though, requires different 'rules'.
 
^^ that

Q: Online store for pies - Part 1: Create your account to buy delicious pies

ChrillewoodzI've got a goal and that goal is to become an Angular expert. So what better way of learning than to create an online store for pies, right? I've just finished the registration part and would like some feedback on it. The registration process happens via Firebase's AngularFire, I decided to use...

 
@rolfl in regards to that meta answer... When you say "there is code" are you referring to the CoreData or the pasted source code?
 
@rolfl I;m with you on the day of the week thing. Adding the day of the week would change nothing.
 
@nhgrif I'm referring to the *.h files.
 
And if the latter, did you notice that the pasted source code is just .h header files and no .m executable files?
 
@rolfl yay, reviewing auto-generated header files.
 
2:33 PM
THe .h files I consider to be interace files.
Hey, it;s code, it;s owned and maintained by the poster.
THis is what @nhgrif argued for very convincingly and emphatically.
 
I just want to be sure everyone is clear about what they are commenting on when they discuss this meta question.
 
I do not consider the picture of the UML to be reviewable.
 
Completely by itself, I might agree.
Maybe. But it's not really a UML purely. There could potentially be CoreData specific issues to how you map your CoreData objects... Because how you design this layout effects things that CoreData does specifically, and the only way to fix it would be to come back to this diagram. There wouldn't be a line of code to change...
 
@rolfl the german tech-press writes about a massive laydown of IBM....
 
@nhgrif Code Review you review the code.
that's a picture, I don't care what it represents....
 
2:43 PM
A regular UML, you still have to implement every ounce of it by hand, and you can change the performance without changing the UML. You can't change CoreData's performance without changing how you set up your CoreData layout.
This would be similar to creating a user interface in a visual designer and asking a question about improving the speed of the auto layout if it runs kind of slow.
I'm not saying that this is what this specific question is...
Would a question about slow UI performance be off topic if all the UI work was done in an IB and not by hand?
