Q: Do moderators have jobs?

FlavorScapeHow do moderators make money? Seems like you'd have to spend a ton of time on SO or get lucky on those "answers that keep on giving" to become a moderator (you know what I mean, that one question that gets like 450 upvotes even though it's a really boring simple answer). So, if they are spendin...

@TimSiteisaForum Oooo, Friday already?
@TimYiJiang checks schedule
Well, he missed Happy Hour.
1:34 AM
Got Fanatic on Physics! Now I have three badges there (everyone else has 2 ^.^)
@TimManishEarth Haha, congrats. Think you can maintain the lead? :P
@TimSiteisaForum Maybe. I can get Copy Editor if I get back to my cleanup of a particular tag
Knowing our community, I think that's it
All vote-related badges are out
Ahh... right.
THough Populist seems possible
I recommend tactical use of bounties. >_>
1:37 AM
Not enough active users to get votes
Populist. Find an answer of yours that has the right 2:1 ratio vs. an accepted answer, then use bounties to draw attention until...
heh. maybe these aren't that transferable.
It worked for me for two three Populists on SO.
I meant publicist :p
Ah, ha. That's probably doable, with some luck.
1:40 AM
Populist is possible, but getting 10 upvotes anywhere is hard
Forget >10
Marshal is also possible, but itll take a long time
We have a well behaved community
Elections are run yearly, as needed. Since all three moderators are active here, and y'all are by and large well-behaved, there's really no need for more. @Ron. Oh, and candidates must nominate themselves. — Shog9 May 8 at 16:17
Ah, I was going to remark that if you were going for Marshal you'd probably make Mod before you had a chance, but...
I guess it'll be impossible for that reason instead.
not much flag-worthy stuff... Though I guess all closable questions ought to be flagges since only I and Qmechanic are the non mods who CV
Oh, qmechanic has Marshal
Wait he doesn't
2:27 AM
"REFURBISHED WITH 12 MONTHS 3 MONKEYS WARRANTY" - What exactly does that mean? o.o

Q: http://twitter.com/#!/steveodonald/status/200929176633622528

kayI just saw an interesting tweet by @steveodonald: Funny js fact: ["70","81","11"].map(parseInt) == [70, NaN, 3] Testing it in the node console and Opera: It's true! Can anyone explain which strange rule here applies? > ["70","81","11"].map(parseInt) [ 70, NaN, 3 ] But: > ["70","8...

Nominating for the least useful question title of the year award

/also feels happy that he was able to spot the flaw
3:56 AM
/embarrassed that he didn't immediately know where the second parameter to the closure was coming from.

This is why I hate Indian politics: m.timesofindia.com/india/…
5:11 AM
HI all
Hello Manish, you online 24 X 7 ?
5:28 AM
but i saw you on line all the time , even in early morning
are you in india or outside india ?
Student, on vacation
@TimPost Hmmm, that would make sense, but it had 8 (or so) followers. I wish I knew the real reason it was completely deleted.
Even when not on vacation , I intersperse SE with studies.. So it appears that im always online
Good to hear that
which technology you work with ?
5:38 AM
He's a physics nerd. Smart.
As a personal hobby, javascript/jquery and php
Physics is also a personal hobby :p
Q: ...Compiz Closing

JonathanI've recently upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. It's a really good environment; except for one Problem...: Compiz keeps closing on it's own. How do I remedy that? I also wonder why this sight keeps telling me that my question doesn't meet quality standards. Shouldn't I be the one saying that abou...

I think the quality filter is working perfectly
This sight doesn't like me :p
@TimManishEarth: Trying to collect downvotes?
5:53 AM
Maybe. Sort of lost it there
There's a shiny LINK for gods sake. You click it and get taken to "What can I do when I get ...". The BIG TITLE clearly explains that this is the place to go. You READ the post. What's so hard?
I think the issue is that the post is on meta. They could transclude the post to a different page and everything would be fine
Got to go, ttyl
Any way you look at it, that message was really not appropriate.
6:36 AM
Can we silently murder the tag
Or have a mod synonym it to feature-request
6:57 AM
@TimYiJiang Man, I'm a little ashamed I didn't notice that tag before to edit it out. I know I've read some of those questions.
@Shog9 Can you set up the synonym?

@anim I know.. And I apologize for that.. I later felt like deleting it, but it was already deleted :/ .
9:29 AM
Q: Leave only one tag from two: [networking] vs [network-programming]

abatishchevCurrently on SO we have two very similar tags: networking (7677) network-programming (2639) Both are network and network programming related, have similar wiki entries. Don't we want to merge them and make synonyms?

Is there a complete list of language hints that are supported for highlighting? I'm not sure how up to date this is.

Hi all sorry I'm late for my shift again... CV's all topped up - lay it on me... ;)

@Szabolcs Should be up to date
just got down voted by john skeet on meta... ouch...
@Lix What? How can you still be alive? What means did you use to survive a Jon Skeet downvote?
@timY - a pinch of unicorn dust and a dash of nonchalance...
should do the trick :P
There were however some irreversible adverse side effects from the downvote. Prior to the incident, my meta rep was a very pretty 4,444... Now its 4,442... (silent weep ;)

A: Write the shortest program that generates the most compiler warnings and errors

Ilmari KaronenGCC, score 2200 / 36 ≈ 4.5 × 1058 #include __FILE__ #include __FILE__ I have not actually finished compiling this code, but based on testing and simple mathematics, it should produce a total of 2200 #include nested too deeply errors. Of course, the program is trivially extensible...

Is that... ten to the power of 58?
6:56 PM
@Szabolcs Poking into the prettify source, it looks like there are some that aren't included. lang-cv as an alias for lang-py, lang-vbs as an alias for lang-vb, lang-coffee is now available... It's not too readable so I'm not going to find all of them, but at any rate that list isn't complete.
7:54 PM
Argh. Sent the wrong email to the wrong person. Again. I am far too easily distracted.
1 hour later…
9:15 PM
@Shog9 Speaking of e-mail, I tried to send you something yesterday at shog@stackoverflow, and got a "recipient unavailable" message.
@PopularDemand Weird. Just sent myself a message (from a different Google account) and it went through in maybe 2 seconds.
Oh, looks like this is a problem with Hotmail; I'm trying to send with Hotmail via Gmail and they think I'm a bot.
... and I don't remember the password I used at Hotmail.
Good ol' HoTMaiL
9:42 PM
Meh, almost 5:45 and I've yet to do anything useful today. sighs
Good job?
Hardly. I have such a huge backlog at the moment.
Hmm, maybe I can convince myself to take care of some of this Data Explorer stuff today.
I look forward to the day when I have free time for side projects again.
Sometimes I debate whether or not I have as much free time as I think I do, but I don't back down on commitments (even if they're just commitments to myself), so I've got to juggle it all somehow. :P

Depends on how many personalities they have.
