I've just been looking at this question. Even if it was cleaned up, it would essentially boil down to: 'How do you use
ProgressDialog in a
TabHost application for Android?'. To me, the question is overly broad and shows little engagement/effort from the OP, so I downvoted it. On this occasion, I didn't leave a comment. The question has since been upvoted 3 times, answered (the answer consisted of look at this other website, which didn't mention
TabHost), and the answer has been accepted.
So, I guess I have a couple of questions
- Am I being overly strict in my interpretation of what a valid question is? In a time where there's quite a bit of talk about there not being enough voting on questions, it seems odd that what seems to me to be a bad question has had such a positive response.
- Is there any point flagging questions when they have accepted answers? I know one of my work colleagues has flagged questions in the past, which have been answered and accepted before the moderator has got to the question to subsequently dismiss the flag as invalid. Will moderator's close questions, if there's an accepted answer?
As a general observation (party related), there seems to be a disparity between the expectations of different sub communities on SO. This question in the C++ tag, which showed some effort on the part of the OP, although it was far from an ideal question, quickly acquired 4 down votes.
