I totally get why you’re doing this. Thank you Nathan for your work and help here at SU. I’ll never forget how much time and effort we spent on different matters- the jokes, the camaraderie, the brainstorming on the blog posts and all the chat room madness. I wish you the best.

We apparently found this home away from home one single day apart some 10 years ago. Those were heady days of answering, chatting and working to make the site a better place for users old and new. It was fun and, amongst a few other users, you were a crucial part of the Super User family. It has been a long ride together, and I want to personally thank you ...

Too many goodbyes this month. ❤ This was one of the folks I have to thank for me being who I am now - and I'd say as one of the mods before me, I learnt a lot from Nathan. And a few Hijinks. Good Luck out there.

The kind of indiscriminate downvoting I get serves ONLY to beat up, belittle and demean people. It does serve any useful purpose except to drive good people away I am absolutely not the person who downvoted your answer, but your answer doesn't answer a single one of the multiple questions the author actually asked. Here is a list of the questions the ...

Nathan Hinkle, though, I have only read three of your posts, including this one, you sure seem like a very intelligent being, and through this post you have made it clear you are a very intelligent person indeed, and very thoughtful.   Farewell nhinkle, peace and happiness to you.

There are maybe a handful of questions that are younger than 60 days old. We cannot migrate questions older than 60 days and I do not see any real benefit in shoving a heap of old questions, that OP could well have abandoned, given up on, or solved by other means, at another site. At best it could just be added churn, at worst it is a lot of extra work for ...

Sad to see you go, but know you can always hang out with us in Root Access anytime :) Live long, and prosper, my friend

The comments by fixer1234 answer your question pretty well, but, since I’m one of the people who voted to reject your edit, I’ll confirm them, in a bit more detail. The question, before your suggested edit, was over 900 words long (as computed by the “Word Count” function in Microsoft Word). Your edit left ten words untouched (based on a visual inspection ...

We used to once. It... didn't work that well. In fact the close reason network wide started with us "That nonsense" was basically a compromise that enabled folks to ask questions that required software, and get answers that was more than "use that thing". It teaches one to fish, as opposed to the two extremes - that you could fish with a rod, or to hand ...

What was wrong with my question? I'm led to believe the question was closed because file formats are considered a product or service, which feels very wrong to me. There are two major issues with your question. The first, you are asking us to predict what file formats will exist in the future, we cannot predict the future. Since we don't know what file ...

So it happened again. One of my questions has been closed inadvertently. The folks who have closed it claimed that it is not about hardware as outlined in the help center. There isn’t anything inadvertently about the close vote I issued. The question was originally asking a question that only the manufacturer in question can answer. There are dozens ...
