comment How to deploy a custom JavaScript file to Style Library from SharePoint Apps?
Take note though: 'Anyway, apps can provision to the host web IF: •The app requests (and is granted) “Full Control” permission of the host web ◦Note this means it cannot be sold via the Office/SharePoint Store (see Validation checklist for apps for Office and SharePoint). But it can be deployed internally through the organization’s App Catalog.' /via the blog post linked above.

comment Do any visual tools exist for MongoDB (for Windows)?
wrt deleted vs closed - I never considered the difference here - I guess it depends, for me, on if a user with low rep can see the closed question and benefit from it and whether users can edit the top-voted (or any) answer and whether users can add more up-to-date answers.

comment Do any visual tools exist for MongoDB (for Windows)?
Hi @Aaronaught - I saw your comment saying that you're voting to close it, but ignored it because I think that's actually irrelevant. 'Your' question now belongs to the Community. There ARE obsolete and unhelpful answers here, but the top-voted one, with 70 votes, is extremely up-to-date and helpful. I made this Google search yesterday, and found this, so I'd say it's very much necessary - I got value out of this just yesterday.

comment Do any visual tools exist for MongoDB (for Windows)?
My one and only issue with SO is how aggressive we are in closing questions. Take this one - I found it via a Google search, it's highly upvoted, and has an excellent and well-maintained accepted answer that was extremely helpful to me, a developer. Why close it then? This question has not proven to solicit debates, argument, polling or extended discussion. If it is closed, we reduce the body of knowledge that programmers have access to, which is the opposite of the spirit and intent of SO, IMHO.
