comment Is my writing 'disjointed', and if so how can I fix it?
@Krystal An up arrow means you like the post and agree with its content, and the poster gets increased reputation points. A down arrow means you think it's a poor answer. If you downvote someone, you get two points knocked off your own rep, so don't be careless about it.

@Krystal I was not aware of that definition, but you're apparently right. You learn something new every day. :) If you're happy with my answer, please click on the checkmark to accept it. (That's the way Stack Exchange works.)

comment Marking a chart that is not based on real data
@Standback The label is considered technical writing? I didn't realize that could fit in our scope. Okay, that's fine with me. I do think this would be a better fit on GD, though.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about graphic design. Try Graphic Design SE.

comment How to display URLs in a textbook?
Depending on the piece, I might use italics rather than a monospace font, which I find really distracting, but in any case, some form of highlight formatting would be called for. Definitely agree with the rest.

comment Is this a good description of a jew looking out the window at nazis?
Hi, and welcome to Writers. While we do critique short pieces, you need a more specific criterion than "good." What effect are you trying to achieve? What do you feel the piece lacks?

"partum" is to do with giving birth; "legēbātur" is something which has been read.

comment Multiple characters without names: how to address
@what Your advice is sound in general (mix up the references by using additional details), but the OP has specifically said s/he wants the reader at a distance from the action, so we wouldn't be getting the woman's thoughts and feelings. "She ran her hands over his woolen jacket," which then identifies the carpenter, yes.

You can back this all the way up to Hero with a Thousand Faces to see how many plots that could describe.
