comment Take screen shots using selenium webdriver
The fact that you make it clear that this is your post (and not just random spam) is a positive sign, and is appreciated. One note I'd make is that we tend to discourage link-only answers. Could you make this answer stand on its own, with a few code samples and small explanation, retaining the link back to your blog for further reading? Thanks!

comment Turn to automation QA process
This is going to be very difficult to answer. What I strongly recommend is you just do whatever you can. Try to tackle a problem that you think might be easy (compared to the rest) and still have a lot of benefit to your automation process. When you run into trouble, ask a new question. Specific questions are much, much easier and more helpful to everyone than broad ones!

comment When we use adhoc testing? Which model is used for this…?
Hi Mahesh. I'm not sure this question is currently in a state that we can truly answer. What is the goal you're trying to accomplish? What is the background for the question (what prompted it)? I think this needs more information before it can be truly helpful to both you and future visitors.

comment How to test a toaster? (interview question)
+1 for a requirements-first strategy. The interviewer might say "everyone knows the requirements of a toaster" but things aren't tested for the sake of being tested. You test, you get a result, and you compare that result against a known requirement. Even exploratory testing, eventually, has to make its way back to a set of known requirements to be very useful. (Barring the obvious, toaster starts nuclear war, probably an error condition you want to avoid...)

comment how to pick a date from a calendar?
Gaurav, I'm noticing you're getting a lot of negative review over this answer. I think that's because we prefer answers to stand alone, i.e. not solely supported by an external link. Would you be able to get the relevant sections from your link and put it here, while leaving the link to allow future visitors to get more information than is strictly necessary to answer the question if that want to do more research? Thanks!

comment Send testng report through email after test execution
@razizcool4all there's a Jenkins plugin for mailer, you would just add the mailer option to the end of the job.

comment Generic Automation Framework
Hmm.. I'm trying to think of any, any script you could write that, short of literally implementing human AI, could test (in an automated fashion) all of Amazon.com, tcgplayer.com, and my wife's online furniture store. They're three sites on three platforms. You might be able to come up with manual test scripts but when it comes to being automated? For any e-commerce website? I just don't see how it's possible.

comment Generic Automation Framework
The phrase "I have to make a generic automation framework" is a very vague and mysterious statement. Can you focus more about your requirements and motivations? That will help guide an answer that more specifically answers your question.

comment What are some good software QA community websites?
I am unable to find any such link. I think "full forum" is a bit of a stretch considering the activity I saw there. Also interesting is the tagline "world's largest QA & testing community", which could really use a citation...

comment How to iterate a list of WebElements and print the values one by one to perform some action
That's fine, there's never a bad time for a great answer. The question is - is this a great answer? I feel like it could use more love before it's a great answer. =)

comment How to make the opening of browser(all test in one browser) static in testng for selenium
I think (even before you read the answer below) if you read the answer linked and compare it to your code you'll find some similarities. Even if you don't understand it completely, it should be enough for you to explore your way to the solution. l0b0's comment, while a bit blunt and not entirely true in all cases (we modify code from time to time, and occasionally craft it from scratch) is true to heart in the sense that your answer does await you in that other question. And, apparently, in this one too now.

comment Jmeter's WebDriver Sampler VS. Selenium
I think everyone would be better served if you extracted the relevant portions of the link (helps to prevent link rot) and then the answer can be evaluated strictly on its content as opposed to outsourcing that content.

comment How to ignore/accept/avoid SSLHandshakeException while trying to check for broken links?
I agree, would it be possible for you to extract the key elements and form a complete answer? You can always keep the link for further research.

comment How to calculate in Branch Testing?
Unfortunately, this question needs more background information. What are you looking to do exactly? And what have you explored so far?

comment Comparing Sqlite databases
One thing I will note is that this post is identical to another post. The posts appear to be perfectly legitimate, just be careful about copy/pasting =) That being said, Kate is being polite. In reality, almost no one does it... I would venture to say 4 of every 5 warnings issued are for undisclosed astroturfing, so it is certainly refreshing to see someone being honest about their affiliations!

comment Is there a support methodology for UAT?
I'll migrate it. I don't know enough about UAT methodologies to know what questions to ask, but I suspect those with more expertise than I will have followup questions to get you to expand this question to make it more answerable.

comment Is there a support methodology for UAT?
I'm 100% sure this was intended for the main site, not for the meta site. My concern is whether to migrate it there, or whether or not this is a fleshed out enough question to migrate.

comment QA tool with feature for automatic recording of user actions
Hmm - could you explain how you would break down which features passed testing and which ones didn't based on this footage?

comment Looking for an excellent example of using a spreadsheet for test case management
I'm inclined to agree with Kate. While the question is just looking for an example of a template, we don't deliver code without comments, or watch sports without commentary. Some elaboration would be great here! =)
