C++ experts,

At the moment I write this message, we have 2234 open questions in this area and the last ones are from February 2003. So it is high time to close all these old questions.

So we search experts that:
- experts in this area just to be sure you are familiar with the questions you will have to close
- active in the last 3 months - you can be great expert but if in the last 3 months you have at all 10 comments that means you have no time...
- have some time and want to help.

If you fit in the above, please read:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hs7

If after reading it, you are still interested in helping please post here and I will assign you a range to work on.
If you have any questions, please ask.

Thank you very much for the help.

Hi AnnieMod,
I would like to try.
However I was "active" only in the last month, not for the last 3 month...
Nevertheless I am interested in helping.

Hi Annie

I'll continue posting here.

Just for the record..... I'm currently cleaning up the last range you gave me (from 16 april 2003 - 22 april 2003 if I remember right (I have the list at home)).

Cheers

Took a little while (one weekend my ISP could not find EE; next weekend I was out of town) but April 1-7 is cleaned up.
Happy to clean up some more.

Annie,

As you may have noticed, I've not been doing any cleanup in the past weeks. I'm having some health issues and the time I'm connecting to ee isn't as much as I'd wanted to.

I still have some questions to work with the last range you gave me, so if it's ok to you in some days when I return to my "normal" life, I'll continue from there.

Sorry for the delay

Just letting you know that I have not gone away. I managed to get through March 08 (or there about) before last week. Then holiday baking time came. I think the "worst" of it is over and I will knock out some messages tonight with a goal of finishing March by Sunday.

Before I forget Annie, just a question

I found a question yesterday, lets say it was from Aug 20 (I'm not sure about the dates, so they are aproximate)

It had the usual discussion, comments by users, comments by the asker

I guess that the discussion in the question was finished, but lets say 2 weeks ago, one message was posted (kind of indicating another solution), and after that, one message from one of the users answering that question saying something like

"So, can we close this question now?"

I guess that  both comments shouldn't be taken into account.
I mean, one comes after 4 months with no activity in the question (what good can it make to the asker?) and the other is a claim for the question to be closed.

I sincerely do not remember which the question was (and as told before the dates are not accurate, are aproximate). I'm at work now, so I dont have the list with that question, but it is the only one for which I didnt post anything (If you want to, I can post the link when I return home).

I left that question with no recommendation as comments have been made in the last 3 weeks, but if you want me to make something different, please let me know.

In a couple of them I just pinged them (to see if they are closed by the asker as I wasn't sure of what to recommend)

Just skip such questions in the future.

Sorry, I thought that in that way asker may be closing it, especially as they were active users.

Hi Annie

Just 2 things

1) I'm back so feel free to assign me another range.

2) Today I was going through my comment history and I found something really strange.
I'm posting one example so that you can check it out

You assign me a range (November 2003)

which included this question
http://oldlook.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Cplusplus/Q_20802303.html

I've posted my recommendation there and posted in the cleanup list
http://oldlook.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/CleanUp/Q_20869836.html

Now the post with the list seems to be paqed, but the question is still open. :o

Any ideas of why that question is not closed?

Hope this helps

One of the questions has a comment from C101 from 19 days ago, asking if it was time to close the question

May I override the 21 day no comment period as it is an administrative comment?

Tincho

PS: Is there a problem if I post recommendations in all of them. If they have already one, I'll just repeat it?

Ok

So just to make it clear.......

Cleanup ranges have been finished, and there will be no more ranges to handle.

However, I'll be checking every 4 o 5 days, all questions that have been abandoned and closing them up in the usual way.
I'll continue posting this cleanup list as usual so that all abandoned questions are paqed.
(In a few words it would be something like cleanup maintenance).

I hope I have understood right.

If this is the case, don't worry......... the C++ area will remain as clean as............. I can't think of anything right now, but it will be very clean ;).

I'll just ask you to confirm that I have understood right the proceedings and I'll handle it.

Cheers

Tincho

Just a question......... Suppose that a thread contains the usual question/answer/question/answer comments, which ended lets say 35 days ago, but 15 days ago, one of the experts answering the question, posts a comment saying something like

"Ok, so can we close this thread now?"

I should be cleaning it up, as the comment that is from less that 21 days is just a requesto to close the question, shouldn't I?

I'm posting just to report on the cleanup of this area.

As you may see we keep going down with the number of opened questions.

I would just want you to get a look at

http://oldlook.experts-exchange.com:8080/Programming/Programming_Languages/Cplusplus/Q_20846019.html
http://oldlook.experts-exchange.com:8080/Programming/Programming_Languages/Cplusplus/Q_20848157.html

Recommendations were posted, they were included in the cleanup lists, but were never closed.......

just wondering what would happen with them

I finally have to admit the truth. I had hoped to finish October today but I am going to be in the office all day. It has taken me too long to get through the 21st; please reassign the rest of the month to someone else so that it gets cleaned up.

My apologies. I will still hang out here and if you need a hand on any topic area just ask and I will respond (assuming this product really goes out the door on time).

Just a question.........

I asked you because of 2 questions up there and was wondering what happened with that, as the same happened with other questions. I guess that if you look up in the last questions in the area you'll find many with this problem.

Should I make recommendations again?

I had to go on a work trip on saturday and I'll be out of town for about two weeks. I don't think that I'll be able to make any cleanup in the mean time but I expect to catch up when I get back.
I don't think that this would be a problem given the fact that this area is very clean.

However, if you feel that cleanup is really needed and can't wait that long feel free to assign the duty to another one.

Sorry to tell you with such short time, but it was impossible for me to do so earlier.

Cheers

Tincho

PS: Last time I saw, the oldest questions in the area all of them have recommendation and haven't been closed, so I guess that there you could have an extra ones.
