Getting questions started on a path to deletion [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate:
Filter by close reason in the 10k Tools

My understanding is that questions that are closed as off topic, not a real question, not constructive, or too localized should be after a while deleted (the accepted answer here discusses this).

While automatically deleting these question will probably not be a great idea, perhaps there should be a new pane in /review (for 10k+ users) with that contains questions that are closed for the above reasons, so that old closed questions do not have to be happened upon, and the ‘janitorial’ process can be helped along.

Thoughts? Some criteria that should be part of what question get to this point in /review (other than high views)?

Remove duplicate keys from a hash of hashes

I have a data stream in JSON format, which I convert to a perl object using

Within this object are multiple nested hashes, some of which are nested within other hashes inside of the big hash.

I need to walk the entire structure and remove any keys which have duplicate names, across all of the hashes.

For example:

my %obj = [ foo => 'bar', abc => 'xyz', [ foo => 'baz', abc => 'def' ], [ foo => 'abc', [ foo => 'def', qrs => 'tuv' ] ] ]

I need to remove all keys in the example above named foo.

Currently, I have a big complicated nested loop setup to walk it, but I’m certain there’s a simpler way using map. I’ve just not been able to wrap my head around how to use it properly in this case.

Macbook 2015, 8,1 — how to get the keyboard and trackpad working with Ubuntu 18.04? [duplicate]

This question is an exact duplicate of:

  • Macbook (12′ 2015) keyboard and trackpad

    1 answer

Are there any instructions how to install the keyboard and trackpad when using Ubuntu 18.04 on a Macbook?

I’ve tried looking through Google results and I get a lot of Macbook Pro or other strange answers.

EDIT: fixing my grammar does not solve the issue at hand. This is for 18.04, I am not a linux wizard, do they share the same kernal? You marked it as answered. The answer is in regards to 16.04

Does light have a nonzero mass? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • Does light have mass? [closed]

    2 answers

I heard that the light has zero mass. But I searched in internet, some people say light has mass and some people said doesn’t. I am not sure what is the right answer.

And also I heard that the reason we can’t travel in light speed is because we have mass but light doesn’t. Please tell me the right answer.

Asking an interviewer(s) a technical question back when being interviewed [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • What kind of questions should one ask in an interview (for some technical positions, eg., software engineer) [closed]

    1 answer

Suppose an interviewer asks you a technical question. Once you answer the question correctly, you think of a variant of the question that is trickier/less obvious that you think would be worth discussing.

Suppose you find the new question genuinely interesting, or you want to see how your interviewer thinks (because they will presumably be part of your team if/when you are hired).

Would it be a violation of etiquette to lob this new question back at them?

EDIT: Not a duplicate of this question, which is an open-ended question about what questions one should ask in a CS interview. None of the answers their touch on my question here, which is much more specific.

Snipping tool in ubuntu 16.04 [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • Which tool to crop a portion of the screen?

    12 answers

I searched for any type of snipping tool in ubuntu. I found Shutter & installed it. But my Ubuntu launcher didn’t show its icon.

When I launch Shutter from terminal, my PC run slow & terminal showed hundreds of warnings. Is there any other snipping tool (Without Shutter) for Ubuntu 16.04?

How to set a single page’s properties? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • Make a single page landscape in Google Documents

    4 answers

The goal is to selectively configure a single page of a multi-page document to:

  1. landscape (hyperlink to similar, yet a subset of this question) and
  2. paper size A3.

The hope is that the link is dated and that the community has found solutions to enable implementation of the line-items. If both are not possible for a single page, it would still be a ‘win’ if either was possible.

If this is not possible, I would encourage readers to send a feature request to Google and up vote the question to signal interest in the feature (maybe Google will take notice).

Will using a mailto link on your web site still get that address spammed in 2018? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • Way to list “Contact Us” email address on web site, yet reduce likelihood of spam?

    26 answers

It seems that having a clickable mailto link is a good UX, especially for mobile users. But from what I understand, mailto links open up an email to spam more easily due to spam bots. At least, that’s what used to be said about them years ago (today is 2018).

The question is, are mailto links still as ‘dangerous’ as they once were? Is spam / bots something to worry about, or does the good UX of a clickable link outweigh the negative?

I tried to find the answer to this but can’t seem to find much relevant info in 2018. A few sites like Hubspot talk about using mailto links still, so it seems that maybe mailto is back to being a good option.

Name of next tag badge and progress for it are jammed together if name is too long [duplicate]

This question is an exact duplicate of:

  • The Next tag badge block overlaps other block on user’s Profile Activity page

When I was looking at my profile, I discovered that the name of my next tag badge was jammed with the bar showing my progress for me. It looks like this happens when the tag name is too long.

Logged in tag badge progress

This happens even if I am logged out. The display issue is not as severe only because the icon next to it isn’t there.
