I am so sorry, once again the same problem! :cry:
Can't find my passkey. `anj` are the 7--9 characters. Can this be redone please? (one last time)
Thanks for your responses to you both. Yes me too I don't really want to ask questions on several sites. My position would be to ask my questions in priority on TopAnswer. But suppose I don't get an answer fast enough, it is possible that I have to ask on SE and I wanted to have a kind of "general behaviour advices" in this case (for the sake of giving visibility to TopAnswer). @samcarter, I think you answer my concern. Thanks!
Welcome to TopAnswers :)
Form the technical perspective: If the question already exists on SE, it can be imported to TopAnswers (including one, some or all answers). Answers can also be retroactively imported if the question was already imported. (I did not use this mechanism in some time, so assuming this still works...).
See for example https://topanswers.xyz/tex?q=357 how such imported questions/answers look like.
Personally I'm not a big fan of asking the same question on several sites. I would pick one site and ask there.
If you do want to make a manual cross-post, I suggest to
- mention all other versions of the question in all versions of the question
- if you get an answer on one site, you could ask the author of the answer if they would also like to answer on the other sites as well or you could write your own answer, including a link to were you got the solution from.
you could just flag the question here so it isn't visible. If you want it here too there is an 'import' feature but it may be broken at the moment - not sure if SE have actively blocked it
Hi everyone, I'm completely new here (Thanks to @samcarter ;) and I have a question: Suppose I asked the same question on TopAnswer and TeX.SE (maybe not a good idea…) and only got an answer on TeX .SE. What is advised? Should I post an answer to my question on TA, paste the SE answer and quote the SE author (if the SE author doesn't want to answer in TA)? (I can ask this on the meta but I'm not sure it's relevant enough…)
I think the answer there is correct - it only matters if we are bulk importing a large amount of content, which we have never done here
Curious question from me, who has no idea about web development: https://proposals.codidact.com/posts/288373 mentions a `noindex` thingy. Would this be a good idea for questions which were imported to TopAnswers from SE? (maybe topanswers already has this, in this case, excuse the noise)
Anyway, just thought folks here would be interested if you haven't seen those posts yet.
In a side thread, it turns out that SO Inc quietly disabled the data dumps a couple months ago. This became public when the June dump didn't appear on schedule and one of the employees who was recently laid off told the community that it wasn't just a delay or bug. That news hit during the strike -- not a good look. They spent the better part of a week trying to fix the PR on the. https://jlericson.com/2023/06/19/data_dump.html
> The documents below combined with recent company actions lead me to believe the company will not be negotiating in good faith. The crux of the prisoner's dilemma is that the parties can't (or simply don't) communicate. If they could coordinate, each would get a better deal. But even when the parties are able to communicate and do come to an agreement, there's still a risk one party will defect anyway in order to get the better deal and stick the other party with a booby prize. Reading the documents below changed my estimate of the odds that Stack Exchange Inc will ignore the results of negotiation when it is convenient for them.
This one is interesting -- internal communications around the strike: https://jlericson.com/2023/06/12/internal_messages.html
> From the perspective of executives at Stack Overflow, I suspect the spin on news sites is pretty important. They can't be happy so far:
I assume folks here have heard about the moderation strike over at Stack Exchange, prompted by the company higher-ups (sounds like CEO or C-level) basically telling moderators they aren't allowed to moderate ChatGPT posts. Jon Ericson has been posting about it and I found his perspectives (as a former employee) interesting. Some links:
