comment Efficiently get a collection of all users following a list in SP2013 using CSOM or SSOM?
This is really more of an idea than an answer, so I'll just leave this here...I suspect you might need to loop through all users to get what you're looking for. You might consider writing a timer job (assuming on-prem) that runs overnight, and dumping your results to a list or some other data store. How many users do you have, by the way?

You want to do a calculation on some numbers? You don't need SharePoint for that.

I see your problem. You're logged in a "System Account"

comment Create new form with Sharepoint 365 Small Business Edition
What exactly do you mean, you "lost it"? How did that happen? Did you lose the "Add new Item" link? When you try to access the new form, what do you see? What permissions do you have on the list?

comment Site Column Default value not displaying
Were the lists created before the default value was set on the site column, or after?

comment Feature “SharePoint Server Publishing” disables jQuery
jQuery and publishing works fine for me...You're sure the sites are using the correct master page? Try putting a visual element on the master just as a sanity check.

comment The users can not change their passwords in AD-SharePoint 2013
You don't have the CodePlex solution set up properly, or it just doesn't work. File an issue with them.

comment SharePoint 2013: Using JSOM, get a list of all sites user has access too
Not possible. If you need to use JS I would suggest using the Search Rest API

comment Can one develop a simple product order system in Sharepoint?
This is more of an architectural question and there's no single best way do do it. The best approach for you would depend a lot on your technical abilities, and how fancy it needs to be. You could whip something up in a day using no code whatsoever, using lists and maybe some slightly customized forms, or you could spend two months and build a full-on custom solution.

comment Sandbox Solution: Why won't it update when published?
Also, make sure your new content is actually included in the package. Open up the "package" node in Solution Explorer and check that your stuff is in there.

comment Sandbox Solution: Why won't it update when published?
No, this is not how it works in my experience. make doubly sure you are publishing to the location you think you are. Delete the already present wsp on the file system and re-publish. If the new wsp doesn't show up, you are publishing to a different location.

does your dev environment have a My Site host? If not, you'll need to create one.

comment Can a Lookup list field point to web property bag?
Here's something I've done in similar situations, Jim: Make the site home page a custom content type (derived from web part page) and put your properties in there.

comment Can a Lookup list field point to web property bag?
By the way, it looks like what you really want to accomplish is to create some sort of site directory grabbing title, url, and some additional metadata. You might want to consider asking a question here on how to approach that. You might find there's a better way to do it.
