In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012. Currently I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen. As a member of the Pervasive Interaction Technology Lab (pIT Lab), I'm working on Next Generation Technologies for Global Software Development (NeXGSD) where I apply Activity-Based Computing (ABC) principles throughout the lifecycle of software development to improve tool integration and improve knowledge transfer between coworkers.

I mainly develop in C#, but occasionally do C++, PHP, Flash/actionscript 3 and Java projects. I care a lot about proper code design, and some people tend to say I overdo it.

comment Why can't new users talk in chat?
We can't. Why it is so, you could scourge SE Meta for that. Most likely to prevent spam bots from entering chat.

comment Proposed Reason for Closure: No Initial Reseach
I agree "no initial research" might eliminate useful questions as pointed out by Jeromy, but I'm not particularly fond of your phrasing here either. How do you feel about a lesser "unmotivated question" as I commented on his answer? A first google hit could be sufficient motivation in that regard.

comment Proposed Reason for Closure: No Initial Reseach
Aren't the "unclear or inappropriately scoped questions" addressed by "unclear what you're asking", and "too broad"? I believe what we are trying to pinpoint here goes beyond that. Maybe not necessarily "no initial research", but a softer derivative of that. E.g. "unmotivated question" ... which would imply the necessity of research less explicitely.

Nice queries ... but where does the 'expected' amount of votes come from? Perhaps worthwhile comparing to queries on other sites instead (normalizing based on user base).

Screw comments shouldn't state agreement for once. Thanks a lot again for organizing this Christian! Looking forward to the next (at a more time zone friendly time).

I'm not certain we have to ability to add something like that. Afaik we can only edit the two boxes in the tour section underneath "Get answers to practical, detailed questions". I believe this tour is shown to new users.

Not arguing for or against, but to remind everyone, we should also take the 'unclear what you're asking' close reason into consideration.

comment How much agreement is enough agreement?
@ChristianHummeluhr Fair enough. I will recall some memories with the fellow mods and get back to you. ;p As far as I recall, everything happened 'out in the open' though, ... no private discussions. Just public chat and meta posts.

comment Do we want a warning about scientific answers before users answer?
We can modify the disclaimer when answering questions, however we need to contact a community moderator to make those changes, thus we will need to showcase considerable agreement. I believe the help section is shown to new users asking questions, which we can also modify to some degree.

Did you mean to write "disclaimer when answering a question:", rather than "disclaimer when asking a question:"? Can we modify both?

comment Do we want a warning about scientific answers before users answer?
Hmm, I prefer Skeptic's phrasing much more. "nothing but the question" is also taking it a bit too far.
