Thanks. I guess the "C" could be for "Common".

comment Automate Exporting of Rasters Using Renderer in ArcGIS
Encourage Esri to expose the renderer to arcpy by voting for this idea at Expose Export Raster Renderer Settings to Python/Arcpy (repost of JKyllo's comment above; wording didn't make it clear what is at the end of the link)

comment Batch Convert GRID to TIFF with colormap and RGB
Related: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/140196/… (though unfortunately the answer still seems to be "you can't get there from here", until someone provides enough of an example of getting at the renderer via ArcObjects)

comment How to Edit Reference Styles in ArcMap 10
Esri published how to edit .style files using MS Access in 2007: blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2007/10/30/…, so there's no concern about contravening a "you agree not to reverse engineer" licensing clause. Redistributing the Esri produced symbols would be a different matter.

comment *.lyr to *.style conversion in ArcGIS
Also useful to know is that renaming .style to .mdb allows editing via MS Access, see gis.stackexchange.com/questions/25414/…

comment ArcGIS - Export raster keep color scheme
@MatthewBilskie you might need to turn off Stretch and Gamma under layer Symbology on the exported raster, see gis.stackexchange.com/questions/104503/…

comment How to Export Raster with same classification colors seen in ArcMap?
@geogeek when the exported layer is brought back in to ArcMap Stretch needs to be None, and probably Apply Gamma Stretch turned off. There can be a slight shift in colour tone/brightness because of HSV <> RGB conversion, but at least it's close. This info discovered at gis.stackexchange.com/questions/104503/…. Also see blogs.esri.com/esri/supportcenter/2011/05/05/… for turning stretch off by default.

comment Adding arbitrary code to ArcGIS ModelBuilder?
Ryan perhaps you could expand on why output is a [P]arameter, and show example of the module being included in another module. I was initially very confused why P for an output, as parameters are usually all about inputs.

comment seeking “Available Sky” implementations
@B.Davis, nothing new from me I'm afraid, it remains a dormant line of enquiry. You might generate some new information by asking a new question by taking one of the suggestions here and detailing what about it doesn't work, is too confusing, or otherwise doesn't speak to your present goal.

comment Install ArcGIS Desktop unattended or silently
Thanks for tip about wpkg, hadn't seen that one yet. Bit about pre-login doesn't apply (to us) because we often have users self-serve the install; we've had too many issues with other deployment tools (e.g. MS System Center, good tool but learning curve too big for part-time sysadmin).
