comment Arcpy script or other method for points in polygon per participant
I think you should edit your question to make it clear (perhaps with a picture) that your requirements include dealing with buffers and overlapping polygons.

You may want to consider posting your question to the Open Data (Beta) Stack Exchange.

Would you be able to edit your question to include not just the code snippet that you ran but also the result i.e. was there an error message?

comment How can i create points per 10 and 100 meters for several lines with ArcPy?
To revise your question with more details like this please use the edit button beneath it. Doing so should improve its chances of being re-opened. I just realized that I linked to the wrong answer - it should be gis.stackexchange.com/a/84074. positionAlongLine is the key method to know about.

@Vince Is there a link that you may be able to provide (perhaps in an answer) to anything written on detecting/addressing spatial defragmentation in file geodatabases?

comment OpenStreetMap or Google Map Maker: where should I donate and volunteer my geographical knowledge?
As a new user please take the Tour. Your answer here has been flagged by the system as low quality and a user has flagged it as spam. I made a quick judgement call and deleted it but having looked longer I am going to reverse that. I recommend that you expand upon your answer, using the edit button beneath it, to try and reverse the downvotes it has attracted so far.

comment ArcGIS Raster Calculator fails with Error 000539
@dof1985 I think you are right. Perhaps make this an answer here and/or at gis.stackexchange.com/questions/108839/… which sounds like the same issue

comment How to create list of strings as parameter to script
There appears to be another approach that incorporates ModelBuilder at gis.stackexchange.com/questions/17821/… It seems a little unintuitive but sounds like it may work and be simpler than tool validation.

comment How to create list of strings as parameter to script
I've not done this but perhaps it can work. Use a second parameter to enter a single value string parameter and use tool validation to use that being entered to trigger update of your separate multi value string parameter.

comment How to create list of strings as parameter to script
I was thinking that you wanted to enter multiple free format strings rather than choosing them from a list. Tool validation may be of assistance but will still not be pretty.

Done - hope it has not altered your meaning/intent.

comment arcpy handling of floating points
So that this can be a question rather than a statement, and become answerable (which is the aim of SE), perhaps you can structure it along the lines of "Should the documentation at resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#/… be fixed?

comment Dividing polygon layer into multiple layers by values in attribute table column using ArcGIS for Desktop?
The only part which seems not to be the same as the duplicate is the Czech part but an answer was accepted that makes no reference to it so it seems to be an aside.

comment QGIS: How to add a second polygon that is exactly 5km larger in all directions?
@ChrisW The one line thing comes from meta.stackexchange.com/questions/165006/… I am against anything but unsalvageable being flagged as very low quality too.
