I think this is a very good idea. To add to this, a new user will also see the following banner above the list of questions.
Here, "users of Mathematica" can also be changed to "users of Wolfram Mathematica". This banner is another example of where new users only see the word Mathematica, without further explanation or failsafes against thinking ...
I've enabled this for users with <= 200 reputation.
...That said, don't expect too much. This will correctly detect large code dumps, but won't necessarily detect single-line expressions interspersed with prose as in your example.
I've also enabled a check that enforces a code to non-code ratio (currently 4 characters non-code to each line of ...
You can submit a request for review yourself at the following URL: http://cfssupport.sonicwall.com/Support/servlet/CFSSupportServlet/viewRating
According to the page shown upon submission of this form, it can take 3-5 days for a review to take place. Let's hope they get it right this time.
Also, stop posting dirty pictures. Even if they are fully rendered.
A random question, namely the topmost on the front page at the time of taking the picture, was selected as the model for this screenshot.
And there y'go! In review of the current volume and the frequency, as well as thoughts expressed now and then from the community, we have decided to instate this direction of a migrational path. Thanks to Shog9 for ...
Reading the commentary here, it kinda sounds like this might be a good idea across the board - that is, to change "Mathematica" to "Wolfram Mathematica" everywhere the site topic is used. This includes the sidebar, the prompt (grey text that appears in the title entry before a title is entered), and various other places (default close ...
So yeah, funny thing… for technical reasons, a site's tag-to-highlight-language mapping cannot be empty, therefore we had code that just inserted the "default" highlighting for the default tag if there was no other mapping. The question in question has that tag, and that's why that happened.
I've removed that default mapping, it's not necessary ...
Is your question about how to use the software Wolfram Mathematica?
Search the site. Look up it in Mathematica's documentation center. Then ask.
We prefer questions that can be answered, not just discussed.
If your question is about this website, ask it on meta instead.
To add to what @Szabolcs said, we made a change on Monday to accommodate non-English sites and reduced the interval between gaps to 20.
We since changed it to be every 20 characters, only after a sequence of 60 characters without any space or return. So this should be fixed. Note that this was only a rendering difference, so the original comments have never ...
In my opinion probability-and-stats should be replaced by
probability-and-statistics with the synonyms probability and statistics. The difference between probability and statistics becomes too blurred when using Mathematica to justify having them as separate tags. For example, one might want to characterize a random process (probability theory) and ...
To summarize the findings so far:
StackExchange does insert unicode characters U+200C (zero width non joiner) and U+200B (zero width space) into comments on occasion. Link to Meta.SE post. This is done for reasons related to how browsers do line breaking.
In the linked Meta.SE thread it is stated that this is done only when there is a run of at least 80 ...
Be on-topic, only questions about Wolfram Mathematica programming.
Be diligent, before asking search the site and Mathematica documentation.
Be specific, include working code and data in formatted form, ask distinct answerable questions, give brief context.
Don’t move the goalpost, stick to your original question. If you need more,
then ask another question.
None of the settings related to this have changed recently. As far as I can tell, the only thing that triggered this is that the summation tag had the highlighting setting set to "default" instead of "none".
The Toad♦ suggested that new tags post-redesign may be getting created with the "default" in place, but that doesn't seem to be the case. That tag has ...
It looks like someone at SE accidentally enabled the prettify plugin during the redesign. This was disabled before in favour of halirutan's script so now we have two competing highlighters.
On sites where prettify is enabled, moderators can set the highlighting for each tag. This is what allows Stack Overflow to highlight questions in python different from ...
If indeed we decide to merge complex and complex-analysis, we should first make sure that the appropriate questions have already been tagged with both complex and calculus-and-analysis. This might take a while. I would suggest volunteer retaggers to do it gradually over the course of a few days so as not to overwhelm the front page.
There's a bug in the updated version. I've sent you a pull request with the fix (you'll have to regenerate the other files) and updated our version, including this fix. The new version is now live.
Thanks for the update!
I have started manually tagging questions with faq. I am following the metric that if a question has at least eight existing duplicates it is a frequently asked question. This should help to keep faq from merely meaning popular. The threshold may be increased in the future to limit the number of faq questions.
This is my first meta post here, and it seems I'm a bit late, but there is something I'd like to add.
I think this is a very good idea, but I would recommend that we explicitly include the word "software" instead of "Wolfram". The reason is that, to us regular users of Mathematica, the word "Wolfram" has a clear meaning, but not quite so to someone that has ...
I'd say make speed a synonym of master performance_tuning. The other way around would certainly be wrong as speed is just one of the possible tunings (memory, complexity, development time, training time in the case of machine learning etc.).
Click the "Question (revised)" tab:
This'll give you the full question and title, just as you'd see it elsewhere in /review. The revision tab is selected by default because folks thought it would be more useful to review what changed since closure.
I tend to agree that stripping all contextual information by default is not a good idea.
Update: Stripping ...
