comment How to identify complex time signatures?
I have cleaned up the comments here; please take it to Meta. It is disappointing to see active users yet again decide to flood a new user's posts with over-the-top arguments and accusations, when they know perfectly well that this is not the place for it. Fat Joe, welcome to the site, and my apologies for the comment storm.

comment Should we use heavy editing to generalize questions or ask new questions altogether?
This is a good answer. SE is very much about community and collaboration, but the asker's name and picture are stapled to their posts. It is very poor form to change someone's question to be something different than they were asking -- edits should be small clarifications, corrections, and so on.

comment Why do the rep updates take lot of time
I believe certain things like votes being removed are not shown. Not sure how time is involved?

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.

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.

comment Media player that will properly loop a file with no intervening silence
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.
