What do I look for in a post? Clarity and Contribution.

NO vote: If the post is clear, but makes no contribution OR if the post is unclear, but makes a contribution (though I will try to improve the clarity either by comments or direct edit).

comment Is there a word for numbers between 10 and 99?
I have certainly heard "double digit" here in the US, but when I think about it too much, it sounds like "two fingered" :-)

@tchrist: But the only North Americans who can speak English properly (IMHO) are Canadians! ;-)

comment What do students call their teacher in class?
@ColinFine : Especially since there are more English speakers in India than there are in England! :-) Or for that matter, most other English-speaking nations.

comment Specific verb for “training an apprentice”?
@nbubis: Interesting! Sorry, I can't read Hebrew (except through Google translate.. which gives me "program overlaps" --- which sounds more like this question than the question it's in!). To me "program" is more technical than operational / HR.

comment Specific verb for “training an apprentice”?
@MarkBeadles: Your link seems like a totally different question to me! This question is asking about transferring detailed technical information to another employee (not necessarily one that is new-to-the-company, just new-to-the-area). The linked question is about orienting a new-to-the-company person: where is the bathroom? how do I book my vacation days? etc. Nothing to do with the specific area of knowledge.

comment Spaces around a colon
@tchrist: Agreed. I write documents all the time (primarily in MS Word), and I wouldn't know how to do a short space (and keep it there). LaTeX or TeX, fine, but users of those or other typesetting programs are in the minority.
