@ColeJohnson Seems like an okay question; it's not asking for a library but simply how to do it.
 
1:05 AM
Woohoo I'm scheduled 8:30am to 1:00am on Election Day.
 
sucks to be an @animuson
:(
 
@animuson are you laid off at 1:01am?
 
I will probably spend a huge portion of that day on Stack Overflow.
 
Woohoo! animuson will clear all-the-queues on the election day
 
My entire job that day is literally just supervising the Early Voting area. So more like answer questions when people ask me questions.
 
1:08 AM
foresee a elections.SE
 
@animuson What have you tried?
 
If only we could ask voters that.
"I want to know if my ballot has been accepted." - "Have you tried using the Voter Check service?"
"Can I use a pen or do I have to use pencil?" - "Read the FAQ instructions on the front of your ballot."
 
@JonEricson DARN IT! I was going to propose it!
weeps in a corner
 
Well, we had to move moderators.stackexchange.com to make room for a site.
 
1:15 AM
@SmokeDetector false
 
@cVplZ Registered as false positive and added title to Bayesian doctype 'good'.
 
@animuson Y'know I'm just going to bother you with close vote requests & delete vote requests since you said that... ;P
 
user259867
@JonEricson And now they don't like the name, those ingrates.
 
@cVplZ Do fpu's with that.

@hichris123 Registered as false positive, added title to Bayesian doctype 'good', whitelisted user.
 
@WeaponofChoice Fine: ingrates.stackexchange.com it is.
 
1:26 AM
@hichris123 ?
 
@cVplZ It whitelists the user, too. Not that it does any good right now (whitelisting & blacklisting are kinda messed up.
 
how do i do a fpu?
 
Or I think falseu also works.
 
oh, instead of false, just do falseu if about a username
 
yep
 
1:30 AM
sounds like someone missed an opportunity for "no u".
 
1:53 AM
@AnnaLear no u
;)
 
no, no U
;)
 
NO, NO, NOOOOO U
 
U
 
𝐔
Is that intentional?
 
@bjb568 where?
 
@bjb568 ah, gotcha
 
:2588047 Hi
@bjb568 Huh…
@bjb568 This pings and shows up as "<arrow>@bjb568", but on reload it turns into ":2588047".
@bjb568 This one works, even tho the only difference is editing.
 
If there is an answer which basically repeating what the OP has done without adding new info, is it NAA? Or just downvote it?
 
@AndrewT. Is NAA, but flag will be declined because NAA is broken. You can mod flag in this situation.
Because the LQRQ is better at reviewing those things than mods, it will approve it if no VLQ and leave a comment probably.
 
Ok, thanks
 
2:17 AM
@bjb568 "LQRQ is better at reviewing those things than mods" - no. Mods have a definition of what specific flags are. The review queue just pukes them all in -- it doesn't care.
 
@bjb568 what a confusing explanation
 
@Shog9 Does this look like a good candidate for those fancy tag warnings? meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/274984/burninate-code-golf
 
huh, thought I already did that, but I guess it was [hidden-features]
 
2:35 AM
Is there a list for tags who get fancy tag warnings? Should I ask this on meta? I somewhat believe this question is not really suitable, since it will grow overtime?
 
@hichris123 Mods don't delete a lot of obvious bad things, e.g. comment answers.
 
user259867
@hichris123 So, mods may be deciding "is this a valid NAA flag, or should it have been VLQ or something". Reviewers are deciding: "should it stay or go". I like reviewers better.
 
@Shog9 what a confusing system
@WeaponofChoice Good differentiation!
 
@bjb depends on definition of comment answers.
 
@hichris123 I mean "try jQuery". It obviously is an attempt and thus not a deletion candidate. But reviewers don't care, they just think (rightly) that it's crap.
 
2:38 AM
@bjb568 wait, did a mod actually leave that around recently?
 
@WeaponofChoice kinda. Usually we'll first look at the post, should it be deleted. Usually, a mods criteria are different than reviewers. Then, we look at the flags, deciding if each is valid, and declining them if they're not.
 
@JanDvorak (is exaggerated(?) example from mod comments)
 
user259867
Yeah. Incidentally, just came across a real-life instance of "no u"...
 
user259867
No, you compute it. — TZakrevskiy Oct 21 at 23:54
 
user259867
Does LQQ replace VLQ in chat? I haven't seen "LQA" yet.
 
LQ != VLQ

@WeaponofChoice umm...
 
user259867
(/sarcasm)
 
3:19 AM
@bjb568 I agree, I flagged this rant as naa, and mod didn't delete it :/
 
gone now
 
who deleted it?
 
Ani did
 
Thanks ani
 
@bjb568 ain't it though?

@SmokeDetector fpu
 
@InfiniteRecursion Registered as false positive, added title to Bayesian doctype 'good', whitelisted user.
 
user259867
@SmokeDetector I think I heard you saying that before...

@cVplZ It whitelists the user, too. Not that it does any good right now (whitelisting & blacklisting are kinda messed up.
 
user259867
Also, why should the title be added to "good", when it wasn't a factor in the false positive? This is just as useful as adding random titles from the site as "good". @hichris123
 
Because it lacks the indicators of a "bad title"
 
3:33 AM
@WeaponofChoice because unlike random titles from the site, this is known to be good?
 
If I have to classify it into one of the sets, it's good for me, rather than bad
 
user259867
It seems that the fpu command is (or will be) given just as "shut up, this is our friend bob again". Unrelated to the title.
 
they implemented this as per my feature request, once we do enough fpu's and tpu's, they will have some data to proceed with the debugging
our friend bob might decide to rage quit some day, and post spam or offensive content, so title matters
 
exactly how often do rage quits actually happen?
 
user259867
3:47 AM
Considering that SE introduced an automatic system handle user requests for deletion... probably often.
 
user259867
OTOH, not many of those result in spam/offensive posts.
 
user259867
My point was, the title filter and username filter should just be independent. If a title results in a fp, add it to the "good" database. If a username results in a fp, whitelist that user. (So, their posts won't be caught based on the name anymore. They may well be caught based on title.)
 
> if(has_already_been_posted(site, post_id, s) or is_false_positive(post_id, site) or is_whitelisted_user(get_user_from_url(d["ownerUrl"]))):
return False # Don't repost. Reddit will hate you.
^that's what happens behind the scenes
 
user259867
The logic seems odd. So, if the title is utterly offensive but the user has been whitelisted (hi bob!), it does not get posted?
 
it's an or condition, if any part is true, the expression is true, so yes, in that case you mention, it won't be reported because is_whitelisted_user will be true
it should NAND it with is_offensive(title)
^@ProgramFOX
 
user259867
4:08 AM
Or split into two ifs: the check for is_whitelisted is needed only when the post drew attention because of the username. (I should remember to rename myself to "baba ji" after 3 weeks, to see how it works.)
 
@WeaponofChoice If you rename yourself on any other SE profile where you didn't change your name in the past month, and choose "copy to all profiles", you will be a baba ji on all your profiles. This is a known bug/bypass of the name change rate limiting
 
user259867
@InfiniteRecursion Thanks!!! No more waiting 30 days for username changes. Freedom!

Q: Why can't I revert my display name?

Unihedron's sockI changed my display name and want to change it back. Display name may only be changed once every 30 days Nooooooo! Fine, prevent people from changing their name every day, but at least let them change it back! Also, you must warn before performing an irreversible action!

^He/She had named themself as "Unihedron's sock" :P
 
So only had 1 dim light bulb working in the bathroom above the mirror. Thought it was a good idea to put 3 new ones in. Oh man, it's a scary looking mirror now.
 
You need to plan the lighting carefully around places with mirrors
3 lights are tooooooo much
 
@InfiniteRecursion I heard his socks went on strike.
 
@cVplZ That explains it
 
@InfiniteRecursion did it just get a re-open vote sending it back to the queue?
 
@cVplZ possible, since it shows 1 reopen vote on the question
 
@InfiniteRecursion and that is just saying the most recent activity on that post was closed as dup on that date
 
@cVplZ ohh
If I do a rollback to revision 4, will it remove the banner?
 
@InfiniteRecursion but yea, I don't know why they show that under the revisions.. Maybe it is a bug?
 
4:53 AM
I will test and report a bug on MSE, if test passes
Yes, duplicate banner is removed, reporting a bug on MSE
 
@InfiniteRecursion it's a dup..
 
@cVplZ post link please
 
but that's not what I was saying was a bug. I was saying, why would they show a revision tab, when no revision was made that sent it to the queue?
 
yes, that looks like a bug, should report it, looking for the dupe post which allows editor to remove possible duplicate banner
@cVplZ dupe of which post?
 
@InfiniteRecursion patience

Q: Possible to remove the link to duplicate question?

The Unhandled ExceptionI just edited a typo in this question of mine which was rightfully closed as a duplicate.

Thanks for saving it

doesn't it ignore users with great rep?
 
didn't see any method evaluating OP rep in Smokey's code, that's Pham afaik
 
I thought it was Smokey...
 
I may be wrong, but that rarely ever happens :P
in Low Quality Posts HQ, Oct 5 at 14:39, by Sam
And I've added post score and author rep filters, too.
^Pham has it, let me check Smokey now
 
5:28 AM
Ok.. I take it. Visual Studio has broken and got its menu stuck open. But would said stuck menu please GTFO when I minimise Visual Studio?
 
ROFL
 
It will remain stuck even if you minimize it, only expected outcomes are VS won't maximize after minimizing or it will maximize with menu stuck open
I use VS a lot, so ^that's said out of my own experience :)
 
I really wanna have a personal meet with those developers :D
 
OK... sharpDev doesn't open the project and VS sucks hard... I think I'm done with C#
 
it isn't the dev team's fault, IDE's can't be fixed for such issues
devs of commercial IDEs have a long list of todo new features to finish before release dates
 
5:35 AM
if a platform-bound programming language author authors an IDE for their own language, I expect that IDE to not suck - even if it's just a free version of something decent.
 
talking about IDEs, off-topic? stackoverflow.com/q/26668156/2389078
 
unfortunately, VS doesn't meet that expectation...after some time, users gets used to it
 
if an IDE takes several minutes to start up, I can't stand having to restart it every hour.
 
5:41 AM
ai?
 
it sorts by rep then parses all of them
@cVplZ wut?
shell programming
 
another @bart? He's dutch too.. but no glasses , hmmm..
 
Conclusion: Smokey doesn't consider OP rep, Pham does
Yay
@JanDvorak Is Pham your first C# project?
 
Yep. Haven't contributed code yet, though
can't get it to compile even without changes
 
Well, it takes incredible patience, not your cup of tea :P

lots of missing paths, missing dlls, editor restarting, etc etc hassles will come
 
sweet... can't I just code and have someone else test for me?
 
@cVplZ You love oneboxing, don't you?
 
wait for boxing day
 
nope, you can't. the only editor that will open the project is VS, that's the only thing MS made sure of, they didn't bork that part :/
<^>
 
5:59 AM
@InfiniteRecursion what about notepad?

that got a star ^^^^ , which is hard to get a star in the tavern
 
@cVplZ no

@lostsock No....I love oneboxing !!
 
@cVplZ Hard for trolls to get stars, not for us. I get stars all the time, not hard at all
 
@InfiniteRecursion who you calling troll?
 
6:01 AM
Also, stop starring everything I write @cVplZ
 
I don't.
 
go to facebook @cVplZ, likes are banned in chat by rene
 
I only used more than like 12 stars in one day before, and that was just to test if I could actually run out. I'm pretty conservative with my stars.
 
no, sir, you can't run out of stars.
 
you do star me a lot @cVplZ, admit it

It's Friday...
@InfiniteRecursion not as much as you think I do, but sometimes I do star you. But not as much as I've starred @bart.
waits for inf to rage
 
@cVplZ why would I rage? everyone likes Bart :)
his jokes are very funny
 
Oct 18 at 19:09, by Infinite Recursion
@hichris123 Some people feel annoyed in certain situations, others feel amused. The former tend to be rude, the latter tend to be comical. One example is my nemesis Bart, he is of the latter type.
 
huh... aren't I comical when annoyed?
 
@JanDvorak In Notepad, you don't have any of the IDE features, too tedious to code without the code editor features
@JanDvorak Why are you doing self evaluation since yesterday?
 
I always am, aren't I?
 
6:14 AM
are you? proof?
 
How do you prove such a thing?
 
well, I didn't see you ask other user's opinions about yourself in the tavern before yesterday, so why this self-evaluation now?
maybe irl you do it, but now you started in the tavern
 
@AndrewT. valid question, not pob
It can be answered based on facts, rather than expertise and opinions
 
6:30 AM
looks like an answer to me, not a question.
 
@InfiniteRecursion What is the best way to establish..., I think that makes it POB...
 
@DroidDev "best way" can easily be unclear (what criteria?), but it doesn't imply POB
 
6:35 AM
@JanDvorak not sure, but the additional code doesn't seem so helpful
 
Can it be answered based on facts? If yes, then it isn't POB. If it needs to be answered based on opinions instead of facts, then it's POB
 
"what's the best text editor" can be answered based on facts, but it will be answered based on opinion
 
@JanDvorak no, valid answer. if we edit out the thanks, it still answers the original question
 
if you edit out the thanks, it will lack proper attribution ;-)
 
6:38 AM
I like VS, you don't. I don't like notepad, never used it to write code, but you are open to using it if required, these are opinions.

questions in that tag get 27-30 comments per post saying hi, hello, how are you sir :/

Oh, that. Well, what are the errors?
 
@ProgramFOX Thanks for explaining

Wth, Pham doesn't even use those libs.
I guess you haven't got Microsoft Office installed.

I don't have MS office, indeed, but why does it look for it?
 
The .csproj file tells me that there are Microsoft Office libs added @Sam.
@JanDvorak Can you try removing these libs using the "References" thingy in the "Solution Explorer" tab?
 
Sam
Ah, I once needed to use a few MS Office libs for the grammar/spelling check functions, but I kinda forgot to remove the references when I scrapped the whole idea.
Go to Project -> Add Reference -> COM -> Type Libraries. Then uncheck everything.
 
both office references and the vbide one? Let me try
 
Sam
8:03 AM
Yes.
 
done; there doesn't seem to be anything checked in the reference manager, though
