wow, 2 days old posts in AU's FP review queue
12:53 AM
@Braiam Wow, 103 first posts.
@AstroCB the upside down 666?
@AstroCB Good news everyone! I've got access to the 10k tools now!
@JonEricson You're welcome, Jon.
@JonEricson claps Go use your delete... binding votes for good!
Did I sound evil enough in my last message?
Or should I have made it worse? :D
1:06 AM
@Frank Thanks. My next goal is a gold tag badge so I can close as duplicate. ;-)
Woo I got a voter complaint today. Apparently I deeply offended this guy because I wouldn't tell him my last name.
@JonEricson Nice! Are you close yet?
@Frank Thanks for starting up a challenge on Gardening. I'm looking forward to seeing some results.
Ooh, not very close.
@JonEricson Im interested to see who participates and how this goes. Hopefully it will be awesome.
@animuson That's weird. I'm offended you didn't tell me your first name. ;)
@Frank I'd actually have to pick a language and, you know, do some work.
1:09 AM
Well he was threatening to call several news stations because he waited too long and is now not an eligible voter. So I opted that giving out my last name was probably not a great idea.
@JonEricson Does it count if I do it all myself? ;)
@JonEricson Closing with one vote would be a useful tool on GL. Too bad we only get 3.1 q/day.
@animuson Waited too long for what?
@hichris123 To register to vote.
Like the guy who emailed us today asking if he could be sent a ballot to the UK. It's like uhhhh do you really think it's gonna get to the UK and back here in 7 days?
1:14 AM
@animuson If you mailed it via UPS next day air, maybe?
Does UPS offer that service for international shipping?
You can't fax ballots. ;P
@animuson Looks like no.
No, that's to the US.
I can't imagine how much that costs.
Oh, well it'd only be return. There's no way Douglas County would pay any additional postage at all to get something to someone faster.
1:18 AM
We don't offer express ballot services.
People try to do that when they fax in requests. They'll call shortly after to ask if we got it, then ask if we can process it it right now. Like... no... It'll get processed whenever someone gets to it. >_>
@animuson To the UK would be $58 - $61.
ffs, meta effect strikes again the death threat answers I raised this morning has ended up with the original question being closed. I wouldn't mind put I put effort into my answer which was upvoted!
1:21 AM
There are way too many Douglas Counties in the States. The one in Kansas snatched the douglas-county.com domain. Yep, dotcom.
@WeaponofChoice Haha we know. We get requests for Georgia and Nevada all the time.
It's because you did not include Douglas's last name.
whoever that was.
Our website is votedouglascounty.com - but our county's normal site is douglascounty-ne.gov so I'm not sure why they didn't keep the "-ne" scheme going.
Bah, douglascounty-ne.gov is boring. Compare to Nevada: douglascountynv.gov
1:25 AM
You have not met our terrible IT department.
@Lankymart /me hands Lankymart a get well soon card
... or Colorado: douglas.co.us . My sympathies.
@animuson Set the Comms Room loose on them.
The LQP Queue has been cleared?
@Frank I'd rather they just let me improve the question then close it!
1:28 AM
yea, it gets cleared all the time
@animuson can do unlimited reviews in the LQP, and it's his fav queue
@Lankymart We used to have a whining room for you, but I think it is frozen. :(
@Lankymart Which question?
I'm getting hit with lots of audits today.
@Lankymart if you think the q and a would be helpful for others down the road, then just start a new question and self answer it
1:31 AM
I'm craving marshmallows.
@cVplZ The question along with the answer are gone.
@Lankymart They were removed for a reason. What was the close reason?
It was on hold, but it wasn't on hold very long think the reason was not enough information to reproduce.
@Lankymart try this If doesn't show up in neither, you can always ask a 10k user to give you a screenshot of it
@Lankymart Probably this reason:
1:35 AM
But then its all due to the meta efftect, I thought the fact I had an upvoted answer would go in my favor...
> The problem described here can no longer be reproduced. Changes to the system or to the circumstances affecting the asker have rendered it obsolete. If you encounter a similar problem, please post a new question.
Well that bs, I could write something and reproduce it in seconds...
@Lankymart Then maybe you should post a self-answered question, as cVplZ recommended.
Are there any 10k users who could send me the markdown or a copy it to pastebin or something?
2:01 AM
@Lankymart Yes, but I'm not one of them (I have 101 rep on SO)
@JanDvorak nah
Q: Could you please help me by voting done this post?

VOTE DOWNI want to hold the world record for the most votes down ever! Please make this possible! Let's do it! Please do not close it.

what is it trying to ask then?
@cVplZ I want to upvote...
@JanDvorak Absolutely nothing. Like 100% of all crappy questions.
2:19 AM
@JanDvorak ???
@JanDvorak might as well be. Looks like he wants to buy patents. (not sure that's really possible anyways) Just like if someone posted a question saying that if you have a cheap car for sale, to call this number.
3:05 AM
I miss over a hundred messages here every day reading and annotating Great Expectations.
@bjb568 I miss more, cause I sleep, eat, and work, as well as be with the fam.
What's a fam?
Not Pham.

My cats suck at catching mice. I just caught one on my own. The cats just watched me wondering what the hell the stupid human was doing.
Dumb cats
4:10 AM
You are lucky, atleast your cat doesn't bring back live/dead mice as a gift for you, thinking you need help feeding yourself :D
A: How can I keep my cat from bringing mice into the house?

littlekellileeThe reason that she does this is she considers you to be part of her pack and is bringing you food as a gift. I read somewhere that it's because she thinks you need help feeding yourself, so she's trying to help you. Though it's a valid concern, it's actually your cat showing you that she loves ...

@InfiniteRecursion I had a cat that did that. I preferred the dead ones to the half eaten ones. They were less messy
That would be a good question for Pets.SE: can a cat learn to catch mice by watching a human do that?
@WeaponofChoice Anecdotally...no. I get a few mice a year as it starts to get colder. These two haven't caught any
The mouse is so scared in the photo :/
Is that cat hair on the carpet?
4:19 AM
@WeaponofChoice Yes. I saw that too. Apparently, I need to schedule the roomba to run more often.
@Andy so you're plan is to suffocate it?
@cVplZ No. I took it to the back of the woods and let it go.
@Andy that's good. S/he looked like a innocent mouse who just got lost in the wrong neighborhood.
So is this spamish-lite question just going to sit there forever?
Ask Patents has moderation issues, as all of us are already aware, so it may hang around for some more time
the only other alternative is that we go and nuke it
I like the alternative. The thing should be deleted. I don't care that much how it's deleted.

We’ve all heard the stories of seemingly trivial patents being used to mug technology companies. There was the patent on the “Interactive Web” which a troll named Eolas used to extract $521 million from Microsoft–until a jury in East Texas threw out the patents. There are the four patents Lodsys is using to send threatening letters to software developers everywhere–trivial patents that Google says never should have been granted, in fact, Google and Oracle have submitted mountains of prior art to show that the patents should be invalid. …

oh, thanks @andy, just found this too
A: How is this experiment going?

Robert CartainoThe slowdown experienced after a gala launch isn't all that unusual and certainly not unexpected. We launched this site outside our normal process of assuring we have critical mass of users prior to launch. But this is a "special project" with a staff committed to building this project from the ...

@cVplZ go flag the spam :/
So, why doesn't SE just appoint a mod or two for that site? I'd appoint @jan. Just so at least there's someone to do garbage cleanup.
@cVplZ I agree

Q: Would you be interested in Moderating this site?

Robert CartainoGreeting all! It's time to see if we can get some Moderators for this site! Most Stack Exchange sites (like Ask Patents) are generally self-moderated by the community. The combination of voting, wiki-style editing, and control over your content makes this all possible. But when something happens...

@WeaponofChoice we are neither dancing nor volunteering to be mods, we are greeting each other

@Unihedron ya, that's when I get really confused and have to read and then click(after pausing songs) ;)
@Unihedron what? we're not supposed to use the Wheel of Flag Reason?
5:11 AM
Wow, really great blog, changing patented overpoweredness singlehandedly :)
ya @Uni, what's the wheel of blame there for? :P
2 years passed since that blog was written
For when you feel upset or mean or feeling like posting a rant on meta.*, @Droid. It's better to spin the wheel, accept the answer and move on.
I'm going to improve the fuzziness of the regex for offensive posts so it doesn't miss stuff like that, when I'm home. cc @inf @pro
Thanks @uni :)
@Unihedron It's a great but underused site. I was on a rampage supporting that site for a hot minute but then had to travel for a few months and didn't follow through like I wanted to.

@InfiniteRecursion Done and done.
@InfiniteRecursion why is it locked by community?
@DroidDev It's deleted from spam votes; maybe you caught it right as it was going away and saw something weird.
@DroidDev it doesn't show locked for me, it's gone now
I see it as Page Not Found. Caching.
5:20 AM
@JasonC ya, that might be the reason, its gone for me too now :/
Spam-deleted posts are both locked and deleted by Community; apparently, in this order.
@InfiniteRecursion I need to think for a while to make sure I can commit, but thanks for pointing that out. I may be a bit on the late side there but it looks like they haven't picked anybody. I would love to help out there.
But right now, the bed calls. \o

As you can tell if you look at mine, or @inf's or other people's, it's nothing like that. Is their a user that anyone can find that is more consistent than Skeet?
@DroidDev your's is more like a hill
@cVplZ ya, that's what I was thinking, there is a land in start, then a sharp cliff, and then top of hill, which is again plane
@nicael's isn't as jumpy as I thought it'd be. But still pretty zig zaggy. Make sure to show all sites not just top 5.

I love blatantly off-topic reason :D
@DroidDev you will miss it once you hit 3K
After 3K, you need to type a custom reason if it's blatantly off-topic :/
@InfiniteRecursion well, given my pace of answering on SO, I won't reach it for another 98234568915643918376549187364918734 61345867893 years :P
@DroidDev I don't answer much either, I had 2K in my first month on SO, now in my 11th month, I am still at 3K, thanks to my legacy rep and a few bounties
@InfiniteRecursion Actually, I just don't like to hand over code to people, (until they are my friends;)) and that's what people in Android mostly want. They just want code and nothing else.
Ok, in my case, I get very less time, so I access chat, flag and cv stuff from my mobile, which is very convenient. But writing an answer means sitting on my computers and typing, for which I am too lazy :/
I write meta posts more frequently, because there is no code, I can type it using my mobile :D
6:20 AM
@cVplZ take a look at my SO graph :)
How much rep do I have?
you are lucky that you still have an account :P
@nicael -272
@InfiniteRecursion that is my real rep.
@JanDvorak nuked
6:25 AM
@nicael why do you keep donating rep?
@DroidDev the concept is similar to manipulating test data in test accounts
for testing different stuff, he needs a different rep value each time
@InfiniteRecursion I wonder what he is testing...
Stack Exchange
@DroidDev what is the rep for if not donating?
The SE devs have got a user who tests their sites and finds all the weird issues, whether they like it or not :D
He is a dev's nightmare :D
6:30 AM
@nicael You get better privileges on site, but I think, like me, you don't care about it. Then again, I am still thinking, do you make sure, that the rep you donate goes to right person?

It's not a comment on another post, it is an answer which adds/provides a useful addition to the entire post. Comments are for requesting clarification. Important information should be posted as an answer, because comments are temporary and answers are permanent.
If one has new information, which is not present in existing answers, they should post that as a new answer if it adds value to the post
