comment Can a machine be taught to flag comments automatically?
And now you have an auto-flagging system to moderate too.

Reduced word count after re-reading question... could have sworn the original had 'write a program... demonstrating OOP concepts' in the requirements.

comment Make user aware that he cannot enter arbitrary values into textbox?
But the user doesn't have to use a predefined value. You haven't prevented that, so you can't treat it as a requirement, only a preference. You used a control state that a user expects to allow arbitrary input, because it is designed for that purpose, but you want them to arbitrarily ignore that functionality in this case. Your issue stems from poor programming practices (allowing an invalid value), not poor communication.

comment Visual Studio 2013 update 3 problems
I upvoted this, and that is the reason I am commenting. Because I can't just say 'plus one' now. Anyway... This may not be 'the fix' but it fixed it for me. That's what I get for blindly installing a extension because MS prompted me to.

comment Can I transfer reputation to answer without using bounty to get more unnecessary attention?
It only 'needs' the attention it needs. If other people are interested in the subject, they'll likely find your post; if they think the accepted answer is great, they'll likely upvote it. Allow the site to work on its own, instead of trying to game it when you 'don't think it's enough'. Rule of thumb: ask yourself 'what if everyone on the site did what I am suggesting? Would the site gain value or lose value?'
