We need an open-source alternative to stack overflow. They have fucking monopolizing pieces of ratshit admins there and lame ass bots.

I HAD A FUCKING 450 REP :/ and now i have "reached my question limit"

I mean its okay of you want to keep stackoverflow clean , but straight out rejecting the new queries should be against your god damn principles, if those mofos have any!

If it is so easy to downvote and delete a question for the mods, why can't they create a trash site called dump.stackoverflow.com ? whenever a question is not following their stupid guidelines , downvote it to oblivion. After a certain limit, that question goes to dump space where it will be automatically removed after 30 days. Atleast give us 30 fucking days to gather attention of audience !

And how does a question defines someone's character that you downright ban the person from asking new questions? Is there a phd that we should be doing in our mother's womb to get qualified as legitimate question author?

"No questions are stupid" is what we usually hear in our school/college life. And that's a stretch, i agree. Some questions are definitely stupid. But "Your questions are so stupid we are removing you from the site" is the worst possible way to deal with a question asker.

Bloody assholes.

Now, can anyone tell me that if am passing a parcelable list of objects in an intent before starting a new activity, how can i retrieve it in the new activity without getting any kotlin warnings?
The compiler is saying that the data coming via intent is that of list<Type!> aka list of platform type, so how to deal with this warning?

    "Your questions are so stupid we are removing you from the site." Hahaha. Damn.

    "Your questions are so stupid, we are obliterating your existence in every dimension of the multiverse."

    Why does everything have to be so open source? Just an alternative would suffice 🙄

    There needs to be a platform that limits interaction between various skill levels. That's one of the reasons they all go south, the experienced members get tired of fielding the same basic questions creatively expressed in such ways to dodge all known search algorithms to speak of.

    Not that you can't expect a junior led group to ever achieve anything other than disaster, but maybe establish a tier system in which questions are passed up a level or two, first for the answer, then up another couple for review.

    Makes me wonder, what did you ask, and how? Was it written like the last paragraph of your question here, with no minimal example? In that case, I am not surprised about your question being massively downvoted.

    @M1sf3t It's voluntary to answer questions. If you can't just ignore the same old stupid asf questions then you should probably not be on there

    @Stuxnet idk, i think it eventually even gets to the people with the best of intentions. There's something to that study about your phone being a psychological reward system. Scrolling through the feed only to just ignore a bunch of stuff is disappointing if only at a subconscious level.

    Or scrolling through the browser window, makes no difference, if someone is on there not specifically looking for an answer to a question that they themselves have then it's for social interaction, one way or the other.

    @Stuxnet SO is not intended as forum where you ignore irrelevant threads. It is not intended as help desk either. When people ask without understanding this, it is completely reasonable to kick them out.

    @Fast-Nop i mean you're not wrong but there's also no need to be unnecessarily cunty either. You chose to be there so don't bitch whenever people are using it.

    @Stuxnet They don't use it, they ABuse it. SO isn't a handholding therapy either. There's no point in and not enough manpower for catering for every snowflake who didn't bother to read what SO is even about. Getting rid of them with as little spent effort as possible is the way out.

    @M1sf3t it's amazing how a standard deviation can make someone a fucking genius sometimes.

    Hell, maybe MOST of the time even.

    I meant for this to be a compliment but no matter how I tried I think it came off insulting.

    @StopWastingTime ask the question here with a question tag, you'll more likely get an answer :)

    @SomeNone i haven't made 450 rep asking stupid questions. I don't jave a good command over English, but i try to cover that up by providing extensive details, screenshots , error logs and sometimes even mini prototypes when i ask a question on SO.

    this is supposed to be a more casual platform. Here i have found solutions to a lot of my tech and non tech problems in plain 1on1 talks. So if you are some knowledgeable in kotlin who didn't understood my question, i would be happy to provide more details.

    a casual well structured forum is every junior's dream, if the answers are not straightfoward in the forum, the knowledge could go to an errorWiki of some kind. i really wish something like this existed

    @Kashmir The problem is that this approach is exclusively for the benefits of the juniors. The seniors don't get anything out of this, so why would they invest the work?

    The problem with this forum is that smart as comments get upvoted. So there is that.

    @Fast-Nop the errorWiki would be valuable to seniors, a specialized search algorithm could be used to deal with error search, and the possible fixes could be listed in a more direct manner

    @Kashmir Senior devs have two magic secrets at their disposal: actually reading error messages, and googling when reading doesn't clear up the issue.

    When they're really frustrated, they google something like "why does this piece of shit not work" and find devRant.

    I have found SO to be a valuable resource. However, I don't use it enough to feel like I could contribute significantly. I can generally find answers on my own so I don't typically really need to post questions. In recent times, when I have asked questions, I have received changes and responses that discouraged me from using the platform in that way. For instance I asked a question on Stack Code Review about functional programming approaches in C++. The code I wanted review for happened to be code to calculate the winning combos on a tic tac toe game. The first thing that happened was the title was changed to be about reviewing tic tac toe combination code. That is NOT what I wanted. I wanted people who were knowledgeable in functional programming to review the code. The title didn't draw the devs I wanted to attract. The experience really made me wonder about the people who make changes. They didn't ask as to my intent at all. I was bewildered.

    @Kashmir causal forums encourage questions like the ones from these two gentlemen.

    The first has either never written a svelte component in his life or is trying to do something weird like add components to a hosted page without redeploying. I don't know because noone bothered to ask him to elaborate.

    The second guy is asking how to do something that is not just clearly stated in the docs, but within the first couple of sections. People attempted to help him but as they did it only led to more questions that would've inevitably resulted in explaining the entire framework to him had they continued to entertain him. Basically the guy wanted to know specifically how to do the things he already knew how to do in vue and not have to study anything new.

    @Stuxnet Public security scrutiny?

    @M1sf3t Yes, i agree with you, but juniors don't ask just to solve particular problems, for example, they can ask for mentoring, which can't be done in SO. Things for example:
    What topics should i research before starting my first big project?
    How can i organize my priority list to more efficiently work?
    Code Reviews.
    Which technical skills am i lacking?

    In general i think juniors like me lack knowledge in: Design, Architecture, Product management, Self management etc. And some of this things can only be learned alone if you bang your head around.
