Since I'm the one that took the time to answer your questions, I thought it might be fair to also spend a bit of time on your meta post, uhoh: Now the answer to the question is simple and I'd thought it would be a slam-dunk for someone to show that the power radiated by two dipoles driven 90 degrees out of phase is fairly isotropic over the whole 4π sr in ...

What should i do? You should move on. Your questions are being downvoted because of your rants and unprofessional comments, not because of some conspiracy or: (from your prior comments) Question seems to be downvoted by this "non-inv-amplifier zealot", and he is suspected to have subcontrolled accounts, or some how else meaningly affect performance, ...

Please edit over all critical material for answering your question into your question. Putting a note, "here are some previous questions: 1 2 3 4 5" works, but it is pretty time consuming to have users go back and read 5 previous questions to find what your project is.

Sometimes the close reason does not match up with why a question is really closed, and this is one such case, I think. Your answer about RAMS approaches was very comprehensive and interesting -- which is why I didn't vote to close. That said, let's divorce the answer and look at the question, which is the basis for the close votes. There is nothing in ...

Questions about an app will probably get closed as off-topic → not about electronics design. Microcontroller questions should be alright. Arduino questions should be posted to the Arduino stack.

Actually too broad covers it quite well and clearly. Therefore I can't tell whether your problem is not understanding what "too broad" means, or not understanding why the question was too broad. "Too broad" means that too much information or background material would have to be given to answer the question. This is a poor match for our Q+A format, so we ...

I went ahead and deleted it. Part of the concern is to discourage going through old questions looking for trouble. When you go back 3-4 years, to the infancy of the site, you see a lot of behavior that would not be allowed now because people were unfamiliar with the format. Also, rules have changed over the years. Finding things to flag in old questions isn'...

I think this is a interesting discussion, but this site is not well suited to discussions. Also, you did a lot of pontificating in the "question", which always makes writing a answer more difficult. I frequently pass up answering such questions because you have to deal with the OP's assumptions and statements before you even get to the question part. I ...

While I can see why you may feel there is a disagreement, I fail to see how one question constitutes a trend. My advice: if you see anything that does not comply with the code of conduct, then flag it a moderator will take care of it. Make sure that is does violate the code of conduct, flagging takes moderator time, flags that are not useful count against ...

You never can tell if somebody else will encounter the same or a similar problem. The answers have upvotes, so the question won't be bumped by "community". It will remain in the background, where it won't annoy anybody. Most questions get solved in the end. Would you like to have all those deleted as well? I don't see why it should be deleted.

If you press the delete button and press OK the next prompt you'll get is: Sorry, this question has answers and cannot be deleted; flag it for moderator attention instead. I can't speak for the moderators (that flag would be handled by diamond moderators) but would guess they'd be hesistant to delete it because while it's been solved for you it might be ...

One immediate thing that comes to mind is that I see you've posted the project files as a comment at a later point. You may have copped a few downvotes for a problem not easy to repeat without a significant effort so that would be worth editing into the question. Remember if that was the case their downvotes may be "locked in" because you haven't edited the ...

Generally, I think questions of the form, "Why does product XYZ not exist on the market?" are a bad fit for the site. This question can only have a few different answers: The product does exist: see vendor ABC's website. (Then you should have asked first, "Does this product exist?", or even better, "How can I solve this problem?" With a note that you ...

12 people upvoted your comment, but only you have voted to close the question. Nobody has downvoted the question, and it has attracted reasonably high quality answers. Personally I think it's borderline as to being on-topic, so I'm letting the community decide. Comment votes don't count. To reject a migration, the question simply needs to be closed. That's ...

Yes: Can you lose an ability if your reputation falls below a threshold? I actually experienced it myself. Some guy serial-upvoted me past the 10,000 threshold (note: nobody asked him to do so). I could then see the deleted posts. He did it just for fun, so then he cancelled his upvotes, and I was unable to see those posts again (until I regained the rep ...

How about commenting on each with "Possibly Related" and a link? In terms of figuring out which it actually is, in both cases some reverse engineering will probably be necessary, and not enough info is provided to allow a categorical answer.

I think that this kind of question would be a better fit on the Information Security or Computer Science sites. They'll probably explain how your model is overly simplistic. USB is a complex protocol, and the host drivers and applications that deal with it are complex, too. There are many ways to attack a system if you can get it to execute code of your ...

You just need to close it, and it will revert back to the site from which it came.

Thanks for askng first! Unless your question is specifically about the design of the electronic circuitry of the product, it sounds like it would be a better fit on the more general Engineering.SE site.

No. This site is not for product recommendations. We refer to such requests as shopping questions and close them. Sometimes we also downvote them to oblivion since this is one of the things clearly spelled out in the site rules. People attempting to ask shopping questions obviously just barged in here and blurted out their question without bothering to ...

It may be possible, but you have to be careful as you're walking a tight line. If not done right, this can easily be a shopping question. That will get your question summarily closed. Trying to flip it around, as you are suggesting, probably also won't work in the naive case. "Will this PIC 16F84 be able to do bass and treble controls on my HiFi audio ...

This question was closed because 5 people were of the opinion that it didn't conform to the stated mission of this forum: Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange is a question and answer site…. …we're working together to build a library of detailed answers to every question about electronics [and electrical engineering] design [and theory]…. This site ...
