Codetown ::: a software developer's community
Codetown is a software developer's community. It's a technical networking and educational group focused on software development.
I have question with lot of comment exchange but SO didn't suggest to switch to chat:
I've tried to create room:
but it's seems it's public room like C++ and not this lightweight question chat.
So How can I create chat for a question if SO didn't provided the link?
This question already has an answer here:
How does SO handle Questions that are centered on obvious Syntax or Logical Errors usually by the asker?
Though some of these questions can be useful if they are common beginner mistakes or stem from a widely misunderstood concept.
But I'm talking of the obvious mistakes like - omitting a closing brace. - using undeclared and undefined variables.
So, what does SO do or advise users to do. - Does SO close or clean up these questions? - Does SO advise users to close or remove these questions. - If these questions do add to the body of knowledge (for instance identifying common programmers' mistake), how does SO determine that? Does SO recommend flagging such question? - Is there any other way SO handles this or advises users to handle it.
This is no duplicate of this (Are typos always off-topic as Q&A?). I've gone through it. Here, the asker even obliges to delete the question. Mine is a more general case. Sometimes, the asker is adamant (even after the error is pointed out in comments) and the question keeps getting answers. See this for example (TypeError: Cannot read property of value between two getJSON functions). Sadly, I was unguided and I answered the question with a deserving down vote :).
So, my question is in order to help users (asker and answerer) take decisive steps on such questions. I'm not considering only whether to flag or not. I want a more general and complete guide (including flagging) for asker and answerer.
This question already has an answer here:
I've got a SO question that hasn't been answered (and not enough reputation to promote it).
I'm considering trying to pay someone to answer the question--if I can find someone who is able. I would use a freelancing site like UpWork to find a developer with the appropriate skills and offer the job to them.
Is it acceptable to pay people to answer SO questions?
On the normal mobile if I am at the homepage or other parts of a Team:
And I click on the top right button, I get a link to my SO profile:
However, on the responsive mobile, if I am at the Teams site and click on my icon:
I get sent to my Charcoal profile. Testing this link on the mobile site, it is designed for mobile devices, so there’s no technical limitation:
I just took a couple of IQ tests on Pluralsight and would like to insert the results into my developer story, but it keeps giving me this error:
I couldn't find any related informations about this, I would appreciate any help.

A while ago I asked a question about using RS-232 communication with Java. It seems as though I need to abandon that route because it no longer fits the desired system requirements. Thanks to Nem for his advice on that one. Now what I need to be…Continue

I need to get a better handle on the advantages of a RESTful web-based API. People tell me they scale better than other methods, but I don't see how they reduce database access or have any other feature that helps handle large amounts of traffic.…Continue
