comment How to turn on Haptic feedback on Galaxy Tab 4?
"The Google keyboard supports haptic feedback on this device" sounds like an answer to me. He doesn't need to prove that the Samsung keyboard or Swiftkey don't support it, or anything else.

I've cleaned up the comments a little. Please make sure to head to the chatroom for extended back-and-forth.

comment Asked "Why are you looking for a new position" Did I answer wrong?
I like 1 and 2 but the others aren't going to go over well, at least as worded. They would benefit from the same sort of redirection in Leigh's answer. Except #7 -- you could just as easily have been doing open source while at the previous job, and you're implying your job won't be your focus. Irredeemable.

If I knew the version I used years ago I would be posting here. This isn't helpful.

revised Why close this question?
Whether it not it's acceptable for the main site, it's not acceptable to ask it on Meta -- please stick to question about SE / the main site

comment How do you get HK-51?
I like this answer as-is. I agree that the "how" would be too much ... this process is quite long and huge pain. If Dulfy ever goes down, there are other reliable guides.

comment What should I do with schematics for the opposite faction?
To update on this, no you don't need to set up legacy relationships in order to mail to your alts. 5 of mine are not in my family tree thing and I can mail to them just fine.

comment Feature request to avoid code on AE from novice users
While I am extremely interested in combating this, I fear that clueless people will simply scroll through the About page to get the badge, refusing to read. And new users asking good questions will have this stumbling block in their way -- the more barriers to using a site, even a minor one like this, the more users simply don't bother and go elsewhere.
