comment PlotMarkers shadows the settings by Style
On a scale of 0 (feature) to 10 (bug), this is probably an 8. (It's not what I'd expect, but there may be some good reason for it, and it doesn't entirely surprise me.)

comment How can I set the speed of manipulate play button?
@becko It allows the play button to be visible without needing to first click the '+' next to the slider.

comment Gaps in CDF produced from HistogramDistribution
@bills Exclusions -> None is the better approach in this case.

comment Making a better looking plot legend
This is in V9; the lines in the legend are thicker by default starting in V10.0.

comment Evaluation time is always 0.23 s
Timing requires forethought, and becomes part of the actual flow of data (and so needs to be worked around when using %, etc..) The interface option Faq is trying to use provides (ideally) and easy way to answer the question "How long did that just last calculation take?" without any additional effort or overhead. It is limited to only the most recent evaluation, but I still find it incredibly useful multiple times per day.

@Faq: What version, exactly, do you have? I suspect 10.0.0 or 10.0.1, which had the behavior you describe. It was fixed in 10.0.2 and later.

comment Is it possible to use vectorized Plot Legend?
Use the same setting for PlotStyle in both LogLogPlot and ListLogLogPlot.

2) PlotStyle is only an option for Plot, but Graphics (which is what Show is working with) doesn't know anything about it. (Unlike PlotRange and PlotLabel, which are general graphics options.)

1b) Plot holds its arguments, so the Map doesn't even evaluate (otherwise you'd get a list of PlotLegend -> ... and be wondering why you legend shows up wrong.)

1a) a -> b[#]& /@ c is (a -> b[#])& /@ c instead of a -> (b[#]& /@ c)

comment What is the meaning of the Legend values for DensityHistogram and SmoothDensityHistogram?
"SmoothDensityHistogram[data] by default generates colorized grayscale output of the PDF of {{$x_1$, $y_1$}, ...}, based on a smooth kernel density estimate."

The values for DensityHistogram and Histogram3D are the same, but you aren't using the same number of bins for both.

comment How can I plot legends on only some of my curves that all plotted together?
@Verbeia: He may really be using the old PlotLegends package -- it had the syntax and behavior described.

comment Circular domain for Plot3D
No, I mean using cylindrical coordinates to plot $f(x,y)$ instead of $f(r,t)$.

comment Circular domain for Plot3D
I'm only talking about the conversion back to cartesian coordinates. General plotting in cylindrical coordinates is most definitely a RevolutionPlot3D feature. :-)

What has RevolutionPlot3D ever done to you to deserve such abuse?

comment Grid changes FrameTicksStyle font size
But only on the fractions, as far as I can tell. Weird.

comment Plot3D is incorrectly returning “1/0. encountered”
Right. There are a number of forms you could use for this particular region. More importantly, there are lots of regions that can't be cast into the traditional {var, min, max} form, but that can be cast as some form of region.

comment Plot3D is incorrectly returning “1/0. encountered”
I think the only bug here is that it tries to do anything in the first place.

comment Plot3D of $z^{1/3}$
@DanielLichtblau: Well, not if $z$ is a complex number.
