answered Accidentally created user with duplicate UID. How to fix?

comment AppStore formatting is broken
If this were a web page, I'd say that the CSS stylesheet didn't load. Sometimes this happens to me if I have a flaky Internet connection or a flaky DNS server. Can you reboot and try on another network? (Do you by any chance know how to use Wireshark or another network packet sniffer? If you do, you could look at it to try to troubleshoot failed network connections.)

comment Write to NTFS-formated drives on Yosemite
I think you might want to edit the answer to clarify what part people are supposed to change. Presumably, they should change just the Tpart to the volume name (yes?), not replace the entire DISK=T with the volume name.

comment Fonts on external display (4k TV) look awful, sub pixel font smoothing gone haywire?
unmircea, I encourage you to either (a) write an answer, to answer your question with the solution, or (b) edit the question to include all of this additional information into the question. Comments exist only to help you improve your question and can disappear at any time; important information should not be left only in the comments, and people shouldn't have to read the comments to understand your question. See apple.stackexchange.com/help/privileges/comment.

comment How can I correct a typo with Apple ID?
Please edit your question to flesh it out a bit more. Tell us more about what you're trying to achieve (what your goal is) and what you've tried. Why do you want to use iTunes with an email address that isn't actually an email address? Have you tried fixing the email address associated with your Apple ID? What solutions/approaches have you considered and rejected? See apple.stackexchange.com/help/how-to-ask.

comment Mac Pro Tower, randomly hanging convinced its a hardware problem but Apple think otherwise
Take it back to the Apple Store and tell them it's still crashing? Have you seen apple.stackexchange.com/q/34110/24154? Have you spent some quality time searching past questions on this site?

revised My Files are all classified as “Other”
Clean up the language to focus on the specific problem. Remove irrelevant comments. Add more relevant tags (and delete irrelevant ones). Use proper English grammar and formatting.

comment emond keeps me locked out of my server via SSH
Can you edit your question to include the full text of the exact error message you get? This might be helpful to others who run into the same issue (to help them find this question), and might also potentially shed light on the specific nature of what's happening in your situation.

comment Why Doesn't OSX root user automatically default to the same shell as other users
Anyway, once you have worked out how to clarify your question, please edit the question to reflect this. The site design might not make this clear, but comments exist only to help you improve the question and can disappear at any time. You shouldn't drop clarifications solely in the comments, and readers shouldn't have to read the comments to understand your question. See the help center for more on how to use this site effectively.

comment Why Doesn't OSX root user automatically default to the same shell as other users
If you actually want an answer to the "why" question, please edit it to clarify: 1. Are you asking why, if a user changes their shell, the root shell doesn't also change? (That's how I interpreted it.) Or are you asking why the default shell for root is different from the default shell for non-root users, initially? 2. Specifically what complications do you anticipate would be avoided if the default settings were different? 3. Please clarify on specifically what you are asking. I'm having a hard time extracting what the specific question is.

comment Why Doesn't OSX root user automatically default to the same shell as other users
@DanAllen, you seem to want to turn this into a debate over whether Apple should have done things the way they did. That is off-topic for this site. This site is for objective, answerable questions. The question you actually asked was "why did Apple do it this way?" and I provided about a reasonable answer to the question you actually asked. If the question you asked wasn't the question you actually wanted answered, then you might need to edit your question or to post a new question. But please see the help center. This site is for objectively answerable questions -- not general discussion.
