@NirFriedman Your best bet to get community consensus to re-open is either meta or the C++ Chat room.

comment What is the most efficient way to represent small values in a struct?
As a few answers have pointed out; you haven't given us enough information. You seem to contradict yourself "Time efficiency is the goal" "but reading is important too." Pick what you mean by 'most effecient'. Once you do that; you've rightly found that you should benchmark, and that should be your next step. Asking our opinion without giving us the facts we need to form that opinion makes this an off-topic question. Give us the facts we need if you'd like for us to be able to answer your question.

comment How to give permission to a C# Console application from Asp.NET web application?
Why do you need to launch a console window from your web application? What are you trying to do by doing that? It could be a trust issue; who's your provider?

comment Perhaps some performance issue with to many calls
You should profile your code (using something like jsperf.com) and provide us with the results; you should also provide the actual CSS / HTML you're using (reduced just to show this code's interaction with it), and you should be able to demonstrate an actual problem. "Perhaps some performance issue" or saying "preciate [sic] some feedback on how to improve my code!" without telling us what it's for, what it should be doing, what it's actually doing, and the problem isn't helpful. once you provide all this information, we can re-open it.

comment qtranslate-plus and mcb (Multiple-content-block) plugin conflict in wordpress
Do you get any errors? When you debug into the PHP behind the wordpress, what do you see? IF you remove one plugin, does the other work? If you put them together, do you see any console errors? What PHP errors do you get? We need more than "it doesn't work."

comment How can I improve these unposted question and answer?
@Kyll The sentiment is great; but the question and answer point in the wrong direction; specifically that for your specific use case, this was the wrong technology. That sounds like a blog post to me. Without an actual, specific problem for people to solve, it just doesn't fit here.

Really your best bet is to actually use that database; create a test application or data to load in it; and test it out, and when you come across an actual bottleneck to your work, then ask about getting around that bottleneck (with reproducing code, of course).
