Greg Everett/Catalyst Athletics and Glenn Pendlay are two solid names to start with.

comment Proposed Olympic/Power Routine To Meet Unusual Requirements
We don't do a ton of form checks, but sure, this forum would be good for one if you describe the video in your question (e.g. "this is me squatting 130 pounds, which is 2/3 bodyweight, using a high bar setup..."). It could help to describe specifically what you think you see, as in, to attempt your own self-critique.

Wait, so you were powerlifting heavy with low reps for a while before you deloaded and started this? You need to add info about that prior programming, then. I'm starting to agree that this needs to be split into multiple questions.

For coaching: If you have access to a video recording device, a form check post to any number of venues can be a fantastic stopgap.

comment Proposed Olympic/Power Routine To Meet Unusual Requirements
@entprise What is the average quality (on a scale of 1-100) of those thousand snatches and C&Js? Have you empirically verified proper shoulder position in the snatch, and can you show your work? Separately, maybe you should do a lit review on the subject of high-rep (5+) Oly lifting.

Have you snatched a barbell before? It sounds like you haven't. That could be a problem; it's both highly technical and highly demanding of shoulder and hip mobility. Strongly consider a coach.

comment can only lift lower body and core
@LegoStormtroopr You're aware that the labrum is in the shoulder, right? And that the question is about how to schedule "solely lower body workouts"? Not every question that relates to surgery or a medical issue is a medical question.

comment What Limits the Repetitions One Can Perform?
There's a mechanical benefit to large muscles in addition to the chemical. A muscle that extends perpendicularly from its joint insertions exerts greater leverage due to the angle of incidence.

This might be a better fit on sports.SE.

comment Milk, the feeling of starvation and viability as a basis of your diet as a weightlifter
"Physical Fitness Stack Exchange...is not about...nutrition unrelated to exercise, such as food safety, nutritional needs for children, etc." Your question is squarely about nutrition as defined by the site.

Regardless of Google, regardless of there being no other SE, this is off topic.

comment Can Starting Strength be done by women realistically?
Women do the program and it works. They generally progress slower and stall earlier. If something isn't working for you, tell us the details and maybe we can debug. Right now it's unclear why you're asking--is it working? Is it not working? Are you afraid of it not working soon because the weight is getting heavy? Have you read the book?It sounds a little weird to me to do 10 pound increases every few weeks instead of 5 or 2.5 pound increases every workout or every other workout.

comment Sprinting and weight lifting
So right now you lift, and you want to sprint on your off days? Are you adding weight? Are you lifting 3 days a week, or 5, what? Do you plan on having any days of rest?

comment How to decide what should be the correct height of bicycle and its seat height would be appropriate for me?
I came here to say what John did. http://bicycles.stackexchange.com/ can do a way better job than we can.

comment Distinguish stretching from warming up?
@Aleksander Because I often try to match the level of research in an answer to the level of research in the question. There's nothing wrong with responding to a halfhearted question with a home-run answer, but lots of questioners are just double-checking something and aren't interested in extreme detail.

How do you know you're gaining muscle? How much? How do you know your body fat percentage?

comment Skinny guy would like to get bigger (of course bigger muscles) but how?
If you have a specific situation that differs from the original that this duplicates, this could be a separate question. But right now the question and answer are the same.

comment How do I fix my Power Clean?
The part of your question about the third pulling being "effectively an upright row" makes me incapable of not mentioning the sidebar on page 195 of the second edition of the Starting Strength book, which specifically emphasizes how the power clean is not an upright row.
