comment Clarification on “The Bloody Court”
@Monica and Clint, I've re-edited to change it to a different site. This one is more commonly used here, but it's similar enough that I wonder if it isn't just a scrape. In any event, its not overtly anti-jewish, like the original one.

@WAF Fixed. Hopefully, the photo from the official website will last a bit longer.

comment Is the Targum Neofiti a valid source of translation?
@not-allowed. No problem :). (I've upvoted, fwiw). The only thing I (personally) would add to the question is what the significance of it being authoritative would be, and why it or Onkelos is different from modern "authoritative" translations (e.g., Artscroll, JPS, et al.) This is, again, something more knowledgeable people might know, but I like to recommend keeping the bar as low as reasonably possible.

Try to include as much info in the question as possible, and keep reliance on links to a minimum. This will also help pique the interest of people who may not otherwise look twice at your question. Then you get better answers, more interaction (and more upvotes ;)) These are general rules to keep in mind. It's better to explain too much, than to assume that everyone will know what you mean.

comment What's her husband doing at the gates in the middle of her song?
Don't give up! My "hiatus" was not really intentional, and now I'm trying to get back into it (and having trouble). The site's worth it, we just have to figure out how to either avoid or change the behaviors of some. @Monica and I (and others) have discussed this in chat several times, and if you have any input I (and they, probably) would love to hear it!

Moving on! It's great to give people credit! But you should make sure to at least quote and/or paraphrase them, so that your answer isn't completely dependent upon their post. (This can cause issues if, for example, they delete theirs, or more answers are added and then people have to go to page two just to understand your answer). If one answer is so dependent on another, it may be a better idea to leave it as a comment instead. In this case, you're adding sources, so that does add new info, but it should at least include an explanation of those sources, else it should be a comment.

Interesting! I've never come across this practice. You might want to consider explaining why "his success is her's" in your answer, especially for if "her" refers to the Torah. (though it may seem largely self-explanatory, it will make your answer more self-contained and approachable). Also, any sources would be very helpful.

But every other pasuk is listing a praise for her, it seems that there are many praiseworthy things that a woman does that doesn't involve hee husband's accomplishments. And why is becoming a judge a man's tafkid?
