Having read the original revision of your post, I'm a little surprised that such an experienced user wouldn't have a better way of dealing with his posts being VTC'ed. Things may be different in the crowded, shouty city of Stack Overflow, but ASE is above all a friendly site. Mistakes happen sometimes, and if we think someone has made a bad call, we try to ...

Your initial post was way to offensive. I am considering to delete it all together and taking additional measures, but first I want say a few words. There is absolutely no need to insult anyone. A user voted on some of your questions, so what? Nothing happened, and even if something had happened: Everything within the Stackexchange network can be reverted. ...

I'd like to start this by explaining why I rejected that edit. I rejected (and edited) that suggestion1 after I have approved (and edited) 3 suggested edits by you consecutively: 1, 2, 3: 1st suggested edit: image resizing is mostly welcomed (due to the current notorious buggy Imgur's image scaling), though the title shortening and the addition of Android ...

How does the edits that would have been rejected when made by a new user or user with a low reputation be accepted when moderators and high reputation users? Users with 2000 or above reputation points (henceforth as privileged editor) are granted a privilege where their edits take place immediately. The system trusts a user with such reputation, and thus, ...

Yes, the situation seems endemic to our site only with only 60-70 users between 2k and 10k reputation points. On top of that, not all of them are active Q&A contributors which aggravates the problem. The situation is so bad I can easily count on my fingers the users who participate on the site regularly and visibly (to others). I also know that we have ...

Houston, we've been having a problem. From my experience here since early 2017 (or late 2016 - doesn't matter), there are a large portion of users thinking we're a help forum ask asking their specific, highly specialized questions, like "My Android phone had this and it's now behaving like this". These questions are generally hard or impossible to answer ...

Since this was asked in election run up, I would like to address it from the point of “What would one do if elected a moderator”. After several thought cycles on this, I have come to the firm conclusion that moderators are already doing what they can and the ball needs to picked up the community itself. The basic difference between a moderator doing ...

I disagree with the answers regarding both types of water. Both ionized or de-ionized water will essentially destroy your devices very quickly, as in "becoming inoperative". Batteries are damaged very quickly by any water that can get to the electroyte. LCD screen are particularly sensitive to water leaking in at the edges; they may be usable, but would ...

OP changed his answer a bit based on the citations I provided. I still strongly disagree with any mention of rice as it is pure pseudoscience, but the answer itself is no longer harmful to devices. Therefore, my problems with this answer are gone. I've given it an upvote. I'd like to mention that this is only possible because OP still uses stackexchange. I ...

First to read: What is the etiquette for modifying posts? and Why can people edit my posts? How does editing work? The first link is an FAQ from Meta Stack Exchange (aka the main meta), and the second link is an article in the Help Center. It is clearly stated that Edits are expected to be substantial and to leave the post better than you found it. ...

Alright, let's see here what I interpreted, to let others see. Links enclosed for reference: Heimdall errors, "ERROR: Failed to detect compatible download-mode device." - Screen dump, with heimdall v1.4.0 no question asked, this was asked 12 hours ago. The log dump indicated this - $ sudo heimdall flash --RECOVERY recovery.img - ok so I thought, ...
