I know I'm sounding bitter but I'm getting so fed up with lazy 'how do I make this...' questions X(
try something for gussakes
if my moderation is becoming more blunt and less diplomatic lately, this is one of the big reasons for that.

@Vincent I think we all are!
11:50 AM
@WELZ should we take more action against them, you think? close them more aggressively?
the main thing that annoys me, is that most of them end up getting an answer or three before being closed or downvoted (as they should imho)
I try not to answer bad questions
yeah, but there are people who do. obsessively, it seems -_-

The poster usually doesn't know the policy of our site. So somebody comments "this is off topic / tell us what you've tried etc." The poroblem starts when they get 3 answers from >10k users it sends mixed messages
It's like a parent telling a five year old not to eat candy, and then the other one giving them candy every day.

Q: Affiliate Ads Are Coming To The Network

Tim PostSome time ago, we announced that certain SE sites will have advertising enabled. This has gone well and we're extremely thankful to everyone for their support and feedback. Because it has been successful so far, we're going to be extending the program to the majority of our graduated sites. Well,...

Maybe they should make a Community ads post on Meta.SE (like all the other metas etc.) where people design Affiliate Ads.

@WELZ kindof, i used to be a university teacher (of engineering) now im a workshop master for a buch of artschool master students
@PieBie right you are
in essence my job is to solve problems @WELZ
@joojaa so..... how do we figure out the anchor points thingy?
Ask the size of selection
@WELZ there is a debug tool in illustrator that says the number of selectef things if i remember correctly

Can a mod(s) give an opinion on this question: I think this is extremely broad and even unclear.
Q: SVG gradient implementation

Jared GarciaIs it possible to recreate this sort of blurred gradient in an SVG?

it has 9 Upvotes (because it hit the Network hot list)
5:47 PM
@joojaa this question seems in your alley
6:40 PM
@WELZ the number of points selected can be found under document info, change setting to objects and select points
7:17 PM
@WELZ I selected all then did Object > Path > Simplify and check Preview
7:35 PM
Ah cool, I like that feature
I didn't know where it was either, I had to google it
but that file has an absurd amount of anchors so I was curious exactly how many
it's pretty gross to work with
I just did image trace in high fidelity... 265k
1 hour later…
8:49 PM
@WELZ how many colors?
@JohnB too many
I'm going to regret what I'm about to do.... (Image trace in high fidelity a 7000x3500 pano image)
