comment Is there a way to perform toolbox queries on temporary files?
As a relatively new user please take the tour to learn about our focussed Q&A format and, via its links into the help center, more about what our volunteer answerers expect to find detailed in questions asked here. For example, here you mention "temporary files" but do not explain how you created them. Potential answerers are usually attracted to questions that says precisely what has been tried and where you are stuck.

comment How to get a calculated sum as dynamic text in ArcMap 10.3 text element?
The coding pattern that you are using is what I call pseudo-dynamic text. You may also want to look at dimensions.

@RaluBur If you or the asker can edit the question to make that clearer and ping me then I will be happy to re-open it.

comment Multi MXD export excluding specific MXD using arcpy
Thanks @Martin When I was new to Python and arcgisscripting/ArcPy I think it was when I began to understand where they started and pure Python ended that made a lot of things fall into place. You may want to look in on meta.gis.stackexchange.com/questions/4058/… - if you have not already.

comment Multi MXD export excluding specific MXD using arcpy
Strictly speaking this is a Python rather than ArcPy issue because it is really about constructing if/else and using pass statements. I'm just saying this to try and help you see that when you write a Python script that imports ArcPy there will be some parts better researched at Stack Overflow.

comment Animation in ArcMap with irregularly spaced time intervals
Would you be able to edit your question to include a more detailed description of the steps you are using to animate these layers, please? That will make it easier for any potential answerers to try and follow your workflow to see what you are describing.

comment Setting multiple WMS layers over basemap of OpenLayers 3?
I am not a potential answerer of this question. The best way to get help here is by making your question as clear as possible to read, while at the same time demonstrating precisely what you have tried and where you are stuck.

comment Setting multiple WMS layers over basemap of OpenLayers 3?
I think this is definitely the more suitable home for it. Once you have taken the tour I will encourage you to read this Meta GIS SE advice on how to structure questions here that the tour and help center link through to.

comment How to show legends of wms image layer in openlayers3
I notice that you have not yet taken the tour to learn about our focussed Q&A format. For any OpenLayers questions I suspect you will be more likely to attract potential answerers when you can describe what you are trying to do, and then include a code snippet that illustrates what you have tried and where you are stuck.

comment Export Mysql position data to PostGIS
The simplest would be ID,X,Y in each row, and that is really a MySQL rather than GIS question so you should be able to research it at Stack Overflow or Database Administrators.

comment Export Mysql position data to PostGIS
Have you tried exporting to an ASCII file of X,Y values? And then importing from that?

comment Using ArcPy to Switch Layout Templates?
@Midavalo There's no ArcPy method to do precisely that, and ArcPy is primarily designed for map automation with less emphasis on using it interactively within ArcMap. I think that is a pity sometimes, but I think it also means that the way I have suggested may be the asker's best option.

comment Using ArcPy to Switch Layout Templates?
@Midavalo I've not tested recently but I think it would at any version from 10.0 onwards i.e. since *.mxt files ceased to be used to define map templates.

comment Calculate the frequency of classes of neighbouring raster cells
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the tour. What precisely did you try in terms of 'Block Statistics'?

comment Spatial decision support tools for spatial planning, licensing, and permitting, alternative to FlexiCadastre?
I think your question is much too broad for our focussed a Q&A format.

comment Heatmap legend is possible?
You have tags for OpenLayers 3 and MapServer but do not mention them in your question. Are you using them?

comment Update cursor for joined field
Can you present a code snippet that works up to where you are stuck, please? If you are saying that your code works on a small dataset but not your total, then can you include a few rows of each to illustrate what the input and expected output data looks like too. If you are still open to either a Field Calculator or ArcPy solution then I recommend deciding which this question is about, and researching/asking about the other separately.

comment Authoring Map Journals Offline?
I don't use ArcGIS Online for Story Maps when I have similar requirements to what you describe. Instead I use ArcGIS for Desktop and I have developed an eLearning video tutorial bundle that shows the techniques that I have put together for Family HiStory Mapping. The key parts are a Python AddIn, File Geodatabase Attachments and HTML Popups.
