Kudos & Milestones: April 2015


New Ace: kaufmed reached the 2,500,000 point level for the third time, in Visual Basic.NET.

New Genius: AndyAinscow has earned his third Genius certificate, in C# Programming.


fskilnik had a question about changing a stored procedure, and accidentally selected a wrong answer. Luckily Qlemo caught it and his Topic Advisor tools to reopen the question to get fskilnik a correct answer. fskilnik was impressed:

I would like to mention (here, “in public”) that I WROTE for the moderators (asking to reopen the post) BEFORE Qlemo posted his last interaction. I didn’t know he was/is a Topic Advisor until his last interaction, by the way. In other words, he (Qlemo) could NOT be MORE ethical. I am really impressed on that. This is one more reason to believe Experts Exchange is THE place!

dmullis had what she thought was a fairly simple CSS problem, but after her discussion with Slick812, Ray_Paseur, Kravimir and padas, she found she had learned far more than she expected:

Thank you all for your research and insights into this issue. I appreciate all of you. I am going to award points.

I am limited to 500 and I think each of you deserve some points. Slick put in the most work and even did a great design so I feel he needs 500 points just for that. I am not sure how to get a moderator to do that yet. If anyone knows, let me. I would give Scott 300 , slick 500, Ray and Kravimir 100 each for trying to help, and putting up with my frustration. Ray thanks for tip on Dev Tools.

Brahmanatha had a similar problem with his style sheet, and again padas stepped up:

Outstanding. Original question is solved! And learning about the fact that padding is part of the element is really a key… I did request attention, asked my comment be changed to “Thanks Scott, you got us pointed in the right direction” and upgrade from C to A.

Now, I must not rest on these little laurels as there’s still 507 errors to fix, but I have taken you persistent push to heart and thank you for that. I may not finish today I promise not to just put it on the shelf… as you say.. it’s only going make things harder in the future. I appreciate your focus on this, really! Aloha from Kauai! if I had a postal address I would send something…

padas picked up more props after helping princeservice negotiate passing wild card variables:

Once again Scott, you are the man. I hope one day I will be able to pass this information on to someone else.
