comment Make :Wq equivalent to :wq in vim
Since I tend to have a "lazy shift finger" when typing a colon, I have had to create user-commands that correspond to a number of internal Vim commands, including :Help.

comment Installing a vim color scheme
@T145 Also, what did you name your colorscheme file, and what command are you running to load it?

comment Installing a vim color scheme
What does :verbose set runtimepath? (with the question mark as part of the command) show? If ~/.vim isn't in there, put this in your vimrc: :set runtimepath^=~/.vim

comment Installing a vim color scheme
@T145 Yes, I would assume so. If there is any doubt do :echo $HOME inside vim.

Colorschemes don't go in the syntax directory, they go in the colors directory.

comment Vim Avoid “Hit the enter key or enter a command”
Looks like you already have a solution, but for future reference, :silent just prefixes normal :-commands, e.g.: :silent :write, :silent :edit ..., etc.

Prefix your :write and :edit commands with :silent.

comment Configure command line look in Vim
No, it looks like I understood you correctly. I said you cannot do what you want. Then I offered an alternative.

comment vim gets stuck at top or bottom
You're flooding Vim with what is sometimes called a typeahead buffer. There's no way to interrupt Vim from processing that, because any key you press will only go into the "end" of the queue.

comment How can I create a macro to compile a CoffeeScript file I am editing from inside VIM?
That's my fault. I forgot to escape the spaces. I revised my answer.

comment Windows 7 search does not return results from indexed folders
This fixed my problem, except I had to recursively add SYSTEM permissions to all files and folders in the folder that wasn't indexing.

comment The risk of vim -Z (rvim)
Although I don't frequent it, there's security.stackexchange.com. I don't know if your question would be appropriate there.

comment The risk of vim -Z (rvim)
To be clear, when you use sudoedit, you don't have to use rvim/vim -Z (the two are the same thing, just different ways of invoking it).

comment The risk of vim -Z (rvim)
This really is outside the scope of this site. It's better to only allow the use of sudoedit, which runs the editor as the normal user then only uses root power to replace the file with the new edited version.

comment How to prevent security flows caused by sudo vim?
There are merits and drawbacks to both methods. Just pick the one you find most convenient.

comment Console window needs to be resized before launching VIM in SSH session
I'm sorry, but I'm confused about what your problem is. It's clear that you have a size issue, but beyond that I can't seem to figure out what exactly is going on.

comment Vim inserting white spaces after accentuations and other special characters on Mac
Does it happen when you invoke vim this way: vim -u NONE -U NONE --noplugin -N
