comment AddIn-Tool is missing
[missing] usually indicates that you have a syntax error in your Python script. I think you will find this under debugging Python add-ins in the online help.

comment custom dialog box for data and options settings
@blah238 It looks like your link is broken - perhaps you have an updated one that you could add as an answer alongside mine.

comment What web GIS is this? (And how can you tell?)
Cohga have a Contact button on their website that should enable you to get in touch with them. However, I think the answer may be that you interact with the same underlying services as it does rather than with it.

comment What web GIS is this? (And how can you tell?)
@StephenLead In this case NGIS stands for National Groundwater Information System. The NGIS product you are thinking of is GeoSamba by its partner Indjii Systems.

comment How to design map tile based on Geoserver?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Every question, answer and comment that you post here is automatically signed with your user card so I removed them.

comment Python - Projecting different shapefiles in the same folder
You should probably research/ask that as a new question but the way I would try is to use arcpy.Describe().

comment Resolution problem
To respond to comments it is best to use the edit button beneath your question to revise it with the additional details.

comment Python - Projecting different shapefiles in the same folder
This is a near duplicate of gis.stackexchange.com/questions/141351/… - the only difference seems to be the use of a file geodatabase instead of a folder of shapefiles.

comment Import and save 'dwg' file from flex to Access database
Would you be able to take the Tour and review our Q&A on How to ask a good question, please? For example you have a arcmap but make no mention of using ArcGIS for Desktop in your question body.

comment Using ModelBuilder for closest facility analysis in ArcGIS Network Analyst?
Have you considered performing an OD Cost Matrix Analysis? I agree with @Fezter about the need for one question per question.

comment Accessing multiple shapefiles in folder using Python and ArcGIS for Desktop?
I always try to upvote words of encouragement when made as comments but, as per the Tour, for Qs&As no chit-chat applies. The desirability of that has been most eloquently put in a Meta SE paragraph headed You gotta get this to get us. Also, the term the asker and then you used is one that I would always edit out or re-word. It is a relatively minor issue.

comment Converting .ecw to .jp2
You will see in the Tour that there should be only one question asked per question so I recommend that you edit your second one out and research/ask it separately. However, having been involved in some related benchmarking I know that the answer will depend on how you measure fast and what software you use to access the two formats. Consequently, you will need to spend some time defining "fast" to avoid asking a question likely to attract diverging opinions.

comment How to raise exception from if statement in Python
This seems to be a cross-post of stackoverflow.com/questions/29291640/…

comment How to raise exception from if statement in Python
If this is a general Python rather than GIS Python library question then I think it is better researched/asked at Stack Overflow. I'm not clear about what you are trying to do but it seems like the question is about Python and that you could probably replace your arcpy.da.NumPyArrayToFeatureClass with something Python that just creates a folder/file and be asking the same question there.

comment Geometric Network Build Error
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Would you be able to edit your question to include the text, rather than just picture, of your error message, please? That way it becomes available to future searches by others who may encounter it.

comment Snapping polygons while reshaping edges?
You made no mention of Trace in your question so I assumed that you were unaware that rather than entering each vertex manually with snapping that tool can be used to automate the process.

comment Old question without answer: R.Neighbors with large neighborhoods?
I think this should be made a duplicate of gis.stackexchange.com/questions/110139/… As some quick advice I think that it would have been better to suggest an edit to the earlier unanswered question that provided additional details into it. However, this can get messy so as a new user it may be better to leave your question open for now to see whether any answers and/or comments lead to a better way forward.

comment Geoprocessing tool output with name?
I would try right-clicking on Temp and making it a Parameter first. If you do that and it does not "just work" then can you edit your question to also provide pictures of the parameters set for your last two tools, please?

comment arcpy.da.SearchCursor ignores the where_clause parameter?
I think you should show the precise code that you are running without the >>> prompts so that we can be sure of your indentation etc and can copy/paste for testing.
