Most experts at EE want to solve problems, not make their answers look pretty
Sure and I'm not for a second advocating that everyone should go around spending time on their questions and answers just to make them look pretty. That would be silly. Some may want to go to such efforts and that's fine too. It's all up to the individual where questions are concerned.

As the very first heading in my article states - "Create nicer looking borders in Articles submitted to Experts Exchange"

Asking and answering questions isn't the only thing that Experts Exchange is about. It's also a learning center. A place to share your knowledge and in turn, also learn from your fellow peers.

So this article is "mostly" aiming at those who write tutorials, how-to's and other types of articles, who may want to take a little bit of pride in how their work is presented to the world. I edit many articles at EE and I wrote this because I've been asked the question many times. Now rather than write the same answer multiple times, I can just point future askers with a link to this article. Make sense?

Thanks for your comment.

Regards, Andrew

I have several fairly complicated, multi-user Access applications that we have been running in Access 2010 for about 4 years. We are now facing the prospect of migrating to Office 2016 - including Access, of course. This is a corporate setting, and we actually had a couple cases of the 2016 version getting pushed out to user computers with no advance warning.

We are not using Access in the "conventional" way - with bound forms and controls and such. We are really using it mainly as a platform for form & query design, and to run large amounts of VBA code. This brings the Object Libraries under references into play.

We were using a "Find File" code block for navigating to upload files (usually Excel or .txt) and this blew up when using Access 2016, but an EE expert provided us with an alternative using fDialog code that works in both environments. Our challenge is that when we load an Application using 2016, it modifies the Reference inventory to the 16.0 set - specifically the Access database engine Object library, the Outlook 16.0 Object Library (we generate emails from within some of our applications) and the Office 16.0 Object Library. Then - if we try to load the application on a 2010 machine - we get a missing reference error because the 2010 boxes use the 14.0 Libraries. Worse, there does not seem to be a 1:1 relationship between the 14.0 and 16.0 libraries. (I can't find a 14.0 library that corresponds to the "Microsoft Office 16.0 Object Library.")

In my 23-year career as a software developer, I've noticed an imbalance of diversity in the world of technology - especially when it comes to hiring women in tech. Here's a look at ways I try to make a difference in my community and the industry as a whole.

as the father of a young mixed race girl, here in the US I am fairly passionate about diversity
I'm not Australian born myself (was barely more than a toddler when my parents migrated here) and copped a fair bit of flack for that at school.

Do you have to solve those sociological issues in order to get more young girls of color interested in STEM or to get more women feeling inclusiveness within the industry, today? No.
Point taken. Thanks for sharing your insights Lucas.

As you note, women aren't well represented in the tech field. However, skin color is relevant in that women of color are marginalized even further. While women as a group potentially experience sexism --  women of color are simultaneously exposed to both sexism and racism. The theory of intersectionality discusses this experience, but the easiest way to explain is that women of color are facing more bias and a more complex social dynamic.

I couldn't have said it better, Lucas. Thank you for your insight. Women of color face both sexism and racism in the US. I'm actually speaking at Amazon re:Invent on intersectionality in tech. I hope to see you there!

sometimes, when answering questions on EE, i think i hit a combination of keys, and the pc starts reading aloud everything on the page.
i looked how to stop that, but could not find it - except closing the window, but this is frustrating if you were in the middle of a rather long post

surely somebody knwos how?

I posted a question in the Experts section yesterday and noticed that I have a tag line.  I can't find this award anywhere.  Does anyone know what it is all about?

I closed an unclosed question - I know I said I wasn't ever going to do this again but it looked obvious.  I selected the questioner's own reply as the best solution.  Why does he get 500 points to answer his own question?

Hi,

I just started my 7 day Trial of Cloud Class and am looking for a course that I saw before Cloud Class was introduced.  It was about how to do things on a MAC that you can do on a Windows machine, but I can't seem to find it no matter how many search terms I've tried.

Can anyone point me to the video/course in question?

While trying to comment on this question:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29113353/Wordpress-wp-admin-will-not-login.html#a42651836

The Write a Comment form appears to have a height of 217827px (probably about 217300px too much). The Preview and Submit buttons were way down the bottom. I was able to preview my comment, but when I submitted it, the page reloaded without the comment (it didn't get added to the page). I tried again with a Hidden comment as a test, and the same thing happened. It seems quite broken.

I've tested it in both Chrome and Firefox, after hitting ctrl-F5 to force a refresh of the page.

How to delete Saved Searches and stop the damn hourly notices?
These damn things are annoying as hell and suddenly, without any involvement from me, have been turned on and I cannot stop them! I'm assuming it was a wonderful idea from someone at E-E.

- I've changed notifications to none by deselecting all of the hourly notification settings
- I attempted to find the place in E-E to delete the search, just so I stop getting notified, and cannot find that.

Please assist with how to stop these hourly notices and with deleting the search.

Suggestion: Could everyone please avoid posting links to External Site Articles if the same information is available at Experts Exchange? I see this happening quite often and think that it would be better to point question askers to articles Published by, and hosted at Experts Exchange instead?

Not only do most of our articles have excellent information by some of our great experts, but also, by providing a link to an EE hosted published article, the Question Asker then has the opportunity to ask for clarifications from the article author.

Just a suggestion :-)

I think the issue steps from Experts do not know that an article exists!

and the EE Search, is not exactly Google!

It would be nice, if when an EE Question was typed in before posting, EE suggested that they have the following Articles, which may solve their Question, similar to other Forums.

But it's deeper than this on EE, the articles I wrote were to address the common questions which come on in the VMware topic area, BUT Askers still want hand holding and a dialogue with Experts, even if you have a Good Article to point them to...

Some do not even want to read the article, they want that EE hand held experience.

Why have you changed the points awarding mechanism? It makes it impossible to see what is going on. Often I want to award points to multiple contributors; it is either impossible or very vague.

What was wrong with the prior system?

Change just for the sake of change is NOT good.

I am a long time (probably 10 years or more) EE user, it is an extremely valuable resource.

Why make it harder to use?

Learning PowerApps and have used paid version of Experts Exchange on other topics with great results.  Did a search for "PowerApps" here and only found a handful of questions and answers.  

Are there PowerApps experts available to answer questions or is this too new at this time?  I noticed there is only a proposed topic for (*PowerApps), so not sure if going paid is worth it at this point.  

Any feedback on this topic?
