Please use the edit button beneath your question to include additional information like the above. Comments can be considered temporary and potential answerers do not always read them.

comment How should i combine these rasters?
By " i found it!" are you saying that you no longer need an answer?

comment How to reconstruct a network with multipart edges to a network with singlepart edges
Would you be able to edit your question to make what you are asking clearer, please? There appears to have been considerable advice already offered as comments that should help you to do this.

comment Identifying which singlepart non-overlapping polygons are islands using ArcGIS for Desktop?
@ChrisW Polygon Neighbors has a version restriction - it was new at 10.1 but, in any event, even if a question specifies the version being used (which I think it always should), I think answers that relate to later versions (and improved ways of doing things) should be encouraged, as long as they specify the version from which they apply.

comment Lat and long extents of Canadian provinces
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Here you are asking a very brief question that needs more information before it can become answerable. Please be sure to specify how this relates to GIS rather than general geography.

comment Identifying which singlepart non-overlapping polygons are islands using ArcGIS for Desktop?
@ChrisW You may be right. I've not tested before making my comment above. However, before considering a merge of this Q&A with gis.stackexchange.com/questions/94979/… I think we should endeavour to bring all the answers to the standard of FelixIP's and to extend that one to show what happens when an overlapping polygon is introduced to the input.

comment Do python codes need to be changed moving from ArcGIS 10.2 to 10.3
10.3 from 10.2 has tiny ArcPy changes compared to 10.0 from 9.3.

comment browser crashes when loading legends at startup
"If people whine for more" is probably not an expression that will attract potential answerers to volunteer their time to help with this question. Re-writing the title and re-reading/writing the question to flow better rather than looking like several tack ons may do better.

comment Spatial join with HUGE datasets
You should be able to achieve the Intersect/Frequency solution from @Vince using a Basic license by using Intersect/Summary Statistics (with case field) instead.

comment Using boolean parameters in Python Script Tool of ArcPy?
+1 Thanks for looking at this in more detail. It's a place in ArcGIS Geoprocessing that seems to me to be crying out for more consistency.

comment Arcpy to get ArcGIS Application Data folder (My Toolboxes folder)
Could you re-read your opening five words, please? They do not make sense to me and so I am unable to edit them into something that does.

comment How to get a map service with multiple legends loaded?
There really is no shortcut (like asking the same question again) that will enable your question to get higher priority. I recommend that you transfer some/all of the content in this question back to the original one. meta.gis.stackexchange.com/questions/3672/…

comment Controlling layers displayed in data driven pages of ArcGIS for Desktop?
That sounds like a good solution. It is using page definition queries in a way that I have not used them. I'm assuming that you are using an index layer that is four identical overlapping polygons.

comment Updating In Memory layers, saved layers, group layers and single layers?
@JackWalker To get this question re-opened I think what is needed is for it to be edited so that there is only one scenario being asked about. That way it will not be too broad. However, there is also no harm, and there may possibly be an advantage to leaving it closed, so that the "two answers in one to the two questions in one" are preserved. The reason I think it should be closed in its current state is that it does not ask a single clear question (as per the Tour), and thus should not serve as a precedent for other similarly broad questions to be posted.

comment Importing shapefiles with unknown spatial reference into feature dataset?
Why wonder when you can test and examine the results? I think this should be done prior to asking a question like this one.

comment Updating In Memory layers, saved layers, group layers and single layers?
@JackWalker The question is on hold to prevent additional answers being provided, and to try and prevent it being used by someone later to say "Why was that question left open and answered when mine with not even that many questions in it was placed on hold?" For advice on how to structure questions I recommend meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353

comment How to get a map service with multiple legends loaded?
Instead of starting a new question, for what seems to be new information about the same problem, I think you should edit your original question to keep making what you are asking and have tried clearer with each iteration.

comment How can I aggregate 1kmx1km cells into ones of 50km by 50km in Arc Map?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. I recommend trying any suggestions posted as comments here, then if you are still stuck, use the edit button beneath your question to revise it with precisely what you have tried - always include any error messages (as text).

comment Updating In Memory layers, saved layers, group layers and single layers?
Please review the Tour where we say that there should be just one question per question in our focussed Q&A format.

comment Combining Datasets from multiple scraped data CSV files using FME
I think a task like this should be doable using either ArcGIS for Desktop or FME, but without more details like the precise data you are inputting and your desired outputs, I think you will be leaving a potential answerer to do too much guessing, and have them writing most of this component for your application.
