comment Placing message in geoprocessing progress dialog?
I would not use arcpy.GetCount_management() - instead think about initializing projCount = 0 and then where to place projCount = projCount + 1 so that it increments each time the loop runs.

Would you be able to edit your question to clarify what you are asking, please? Now, before any answers are offered is the ideal time to do so. Please try to focus your question down to just the more important of your 2(?) problems.

comment Shapefile list gone missing in dialog window
I cannot see how reversing the order of these two particular lines of code would make any difference to what shows up in the progress dialog or what gets output and where.

comment OpenLayers 3: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows
This is the third question to which you have posted the same answer. Would you be able to review each of your three answers to decide whether they really are answering the question being asked or are just generic advice, please?

Does this address the specific question being asked?

comment WMSGetFeatureInfo Not Returning Results
I noticed that you have used the same answer for two different questions. Should those questions perhaps be flagged as duplicates. Normally every answer here should be unique.

comment Zonal Statistics as table creates output but some are Null
I recommend that you use the information that you provided as an answer converted to a comment to revise your question using the edit button beneath it. This answer from a Meta Q&A may help explain the philosophy behind our Q&As.

Would you be able to edit your question to revise it with this clarification, please?

comment Converting INQ-UNIX ArcView3 & PC ArcView3 in to ArcMap
What is INQ-UNIX? Is your question really "How to read coverages using ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced?"

comment What are the skills a GIS Expert needs to have?
I think this is a discussion better suited to chat rather than focussed Q&A. meta.gis.stackexchange.com/questions/3746/…

comment AttributeError: Result object has no attribute save (when trying to save output in separate directory)?
I think you should research/ask that separately. It looks like the type of error you might see running the tool from its dialog i.e. not an ArcPy problem.

comment Downloading wikimapia as background image for ArcMap?
Rather than creating a comment trail that potential answerers may or may not read would you be able to edit your question with precisely what you are after and any learnings from the comments from others so far, please?

comment Using Python new line (\n) with ArcGIS geoprocessing progress dialog?
The output and code you have posted do not match. Please try to only include the precise code snippet that you are running and the precise output that results from it.

comment Shapefile list gone missing in dialog window
I recommend keeping your code separate from your code snippets. That way, as you get each code snippet working (separate from your code), you will learn how it works and what it achieves, before incorporating it back into your code. Here we are not so interested in your code - that is yours - but happy to help with code snippets.

comment Add in copyfeatures into script
For what you have currently to be a working snippet you should probably set fcList to some test values first e.g. fcList = ["abc.shp","xyz.shp"] and then remove the except block - it may be needed in your final code but in this code snippet it serves no purpose.

comment Shapefile list gone missing in dialog window
If you try to run that code snippet then it looks like it will throw indentation errors. Can you always test your code snippets before posting them so that we will know what error/symptom to focus on, please?

comment Using search/update cursor of features based on other values or feature
As it stands your code demonstrates a number of issues and is now becoming this type of question: meta.gis.stackexchange.com/questions/3703/… Consequently, I think it is too broad and should be put on hold. To get it re-opened can you try running each code snippet (presented in separate questions) with the first error that results when you run it. Researching these here and at Stack Overflow before asking will probably go a long way towards answering them yourself.

comment Add in copyfeatures into script
Your learning experience will be much deeper if you can dissect your code to present just the part (i.e. a code snippet) that represents where you are stuck. GIS SE is intended to be a focussed Q&A site, and not a code writing/debugging service. In its current state I think your question is too broad. I recommend that you absorb the details presented in both answers and accept one or other of them. If you are still stuck then start a new question with just a code snippet that demonstrates where (with any error message that results).

comment How to add graduated color to a line based on data?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Would you be able to edit your question to let us know the GIS software that you are using, please?

comment DBSCAN gives “AttributeError: NoneType has no attribute issparse”
What happens when you create your list of lists X manually rather than using arcpy? I ask this because I don't think this is an arcpy/GIS problem, and I think you may need to look more closely at DBSCAN.
