From Rosetta Code

Welcome to RC. Short Circuit should be along presently to greet you personally.

Just a neat little trick specific to RC... When editing a page, if you're linking to English Wikipedia, rather than entering the full link like this:

[ RC on WP] can instead use the wp namespace:

[[wp:Rosetta Code|RC on WP]]

This makes the WP links show up without the "external link" icon, which (IMHO) interrupts the flow of text. -- Erik Siers 12:54, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

thanks, i was actually looking for that shortcut but could not find it.--eMBee 13:55, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Symmetric difference problems

Hi, you seem to have missed out the significance of Note #1 in the task description and made a wrong edit to one languages example, where they used the duplicates in the names to show that their solution correctly handles duplicates. Furthermore, your array solution that you added fails to show how or if it handles duplicates. Since your other solution uses multisets rather than sets, could you show how you get the correct result when the input has duplicates too? Thanks. --Paddy3118 19:42, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

you are right, i missed the note. thanks for catching that! could this maybe be made part of the problem description instead of a note that is more easily overlooked? --eMBee 01:41, 10 October 2011 (UTC)


I see you identify Javascript as one of your favorite languages. If you want RC users to find you through the RC JavaScript User page, you'll need to change the spelling to use an uppercase S in the middle.

why, thank you. although i don't think that being added to the javascript user list matters really that much, since there are many others already, thanks to your note i did notice two other misspelled languages which have a much smaller user base and thus matter much more, and i also found that some of these user pages were not linked to the respective language page...

You're welcome.
To me, it's a data consistency issue. I have no idea whether anyone will seek out other users of a particular language to discuss something via the Language User pages, but if the need arises, it seems to me it would be easier to find someone if all the users of a particular language were reachable through one page.
