If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • @ByteCommander Will do, thanks. – Zzzach... Sep 8 '16 at 0:17
  • @ByteCommander Not sure if I should close this one or what, but I moved it to here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/284343/… – Zzzach... Sep 8 '16 at 0:21
  • I'm voting to close this question because it's now been posted pon the main meta. – terdon Sep 11 '16 at 12:54
