Howdy y'all is my preferred form.
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii Mine was a question, yours is a greeting..
 
user259867
Your question was too broad, anyway.
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii or unclear
 
user259867
Using all kinds of questions as greetings is one of 'merican things I never gotten used to.
 
...
 
12:03 AM
It shows little research effort; it is unclear or not helpful. Feel free to not star it.
 
user259867
New day is here! 40 downvotes, 50 closevotes, and 19 delete votes coming to a Stack Exchange site near you.
 
And I can go upvote the new material on GL.
 
user259867
So can I. But I choose not to.
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii No, you don't know anything about gardening.
 
user259867
I can still see what is the new material, and upvote it. You didn't say "upvote the good new material".
 
12:12 AM
stackoverflow.com/q/26881411/1927206 I went for Unclear, but it is also Too Broad. And no, they do not want what it looks like they want. I'd edit except for the "gimme any language you like" implied by the multiple language tags.
 
user259867
Options for the name of this site... people don't like the current "History of Science and Math". It feels inconsistently abbreviated.
 
user259867
Simple solution: rename to "History of S&M".
 
Or 'HSM'
 
S&M? You don't get out much?
 
Oh look, a bunch of old tool-rec questions to flag..
 
user259867
12:18 AM
I think the name would draw some extra traffic to the site.
 
I can't work out who would end up more confused by the whole thing.
 
Ha!

@HDE226868 people like you keeps increasing the amount of people that wants this invented. — Braiam 21 secs ago
 
user259867
Not very nice toward HDE.
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii honest > nice
 
user259867
The OP has an account on Math, in fact it's older that their Meta account.
 
user259867
I see more desperate math Qs on Meta recently, perhaps the new Q rate limit at work.
 
and it's obvious he got question banned in math.se

12:27 AM
AMZN Forums... little surprise it would come to that. Water flows downhill and all that.
 
@JasonC why answer if you want it closed?
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii You should link to the "ask a new question" on Yahoo Answers. That will make it easier for the OP to find an answer! ;P
 
@TGMCians @bjb568 So I just got an update to the GMail app on my phone. They did it. And quicker than I thought.
@BillWoodger I don't think typo questions are bad questions, I just think they don't belong on the site permanently. So I help the OP, then I let it be on its way.
 
@JasonC I used to do that until I found it it was not thought of so highly. I htought.
 
user259867
@hichris123 Interestingly, there isn't a button "ask a new question". The question field is already open in sidebar, the only button to click is Submit. They made it more chat-like, you don't even have to open question pages.
 
12:33 AM
It won't get deleted with three answers on, will it?
 
@BillWoodger Answering off-topic questions is not thought of so highly but personally I see typos as an exception.
No but it will be closed.
 
@JasonC OK. I prefer to see them gone, but got busted one time for leaving a comment instructing that no-one answer :-)
 
@BillWoodger Well, I won't hold it against you if you don't answer or downvote mine.
I gotta run bye all.
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii huh
 
This isn't a duplicate, the other question is about a bug that was fixed 2+ years ago, this is completely different. — ɥʇǝS 23 secs ago
and then I got check the dates... Nov. 12 2012. WAT.
 
But it's just a read-o.
 
24 ot flags on SO waiting for review.
I only get 25 flags/day on SO, so 11 left.
 
On my close request, that first block of stuff is not a file. It is some members, within a library, which contain DSNs embedded in JCL, and may call in PROCs (from another library) containing that DSN in more JCL, or may INCLUDE another member from another library with some more JCL and one of those DSNs. The JCL anyway shouldn't have been written like that in the first place, as a symbolic value should have been used for that Low Level Qualifier (the bit they want changed).
 
12:51 AM
@Frank that's going to take forever..
 
user259867
@Frank If I remember right, helpful comment flags contribute to the increase of post flag availability. Flagging auto-nukkable "accept rate" comments as "obsolete" can help.
 
user259867
Not sure that "auto-nukkable" is a word.
 
user259867
^ time to train bots to recognize these things too.
 
programming with maths app is on-topic on math.se?
 
user259867
@AndrewT. Yeah, in general. Not when asked like this. on-topic says: Software that mathematicians use (except Mathematica, which has its own Stack Exchange site)... It is one of the fuzzy edges of on-topicness, when programming issues dominate the question. Why is Maple/Matlab giving this error?
 
user259867
1:21 AM
"Sarah". That's an unregistered account, I might add. Grr.
 
user259867
Place your bets on whether that gets an answer from some of the pathologically helpful math users.
 
Erm... I hope not
 
user259867
You win! Question got closed without an answer. (I did help it a bit by dropping a link in local chat).
 
:D
 
1:37 AM
> The title of your question may be insufficiently specific. See Writing Good Titles
That's what happens if my title is:
> Need Help for maple questions! Urgent!
 
I think that "urgent" should be a red flag along with "need help"
 
user259867
@hichris123 Yes, that's a Math-specific filter, proposed by me and implemented by Shog9 recently.
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii Don't know what those are...
 
user259867
@Frank Here they are. The top 15 or so are gone already.
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii That's a boring warning. I thought there was the "It's not urgent" warning or something.
Yep. Pasting it into SO gives:
> Getting an answer to this question may be urgent for you, but that doesn't make answering it a priority for anyone else.

Rather than calling out the urgency of your question, take the time to make sure it is clear and well-written - this will help those willing to answer to do so more quickly.
 
user259867
1:46 AM
@hichris123 Yes, that one is SO-specific.
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii I like that one. Someone should add it to Math. ;)
 
user259867
I'm less fond of it. It's too specific, teaches the user to remove "urgent" from the title. I want ugly questions to have ugly titles; they attract DVs and CVs quickly.
 
@hichris123 aww... I'm waiting for my Nexus 4 OTA :(
 
@AndrewT. Hah. I have a Nexus 7 2012.
 
I wish someone would just capture the OTA URL. :/
 
@SmokeDetector suggested an edit.
 
2:11 AM
Is stackoverflow.com/questions/26292491/… a good use of "no longer reproducible"? It seems so based on meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/258685/… but that's one I'm still a little fuzzy on.
 
@hichris123 oh, it's edit conflict. I thought it was rejected o_o
 
user259867
The announcement of rolling limits is no longer featured SE-wide? Odd. The blog post of somewhat limited interest remains in the sidebar.
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii Cool, thanks.

Q: Closing the Vi/Vim Proposal

Robert CartainoProposal: Vi/Vim We recently launched an Emacs site, and the Vi/Vim community quickly followed to have a site of their own. The show of support here was nothing short of amazing. It weighed heavily in our evaluation of this site, but we ultimately decide not to split off Vi/Vim from Stack Overfl...

 
/me has 131 se accounts
 
I'm split between loving that emacs has its own site, and being saddened that the whopping 778 questions on the site would apparently push SU past capacity.
It's pretty new I guess though; first question only 2 months old. So maybe 778 isn't that low.
So yeah, sweet!
 
Love that guy^
He was a pro-tem on GL, and was probably the best thing that ever happened to the site.
 
2:50 AM
/me proposes loremipsum.stackexchange.com - although I suspect many duplicate questions.
 
Then he steps down.
 
Aw
A noble cause though
 
He was yoda, changed his name when he stepped down.

Q: Remove "democratic, community-driven process" from the Area 51 FAQ

A: Hunting is already covered at The Great Outdoors

J. MusserYes, hunting is in scope on The Great Outdoors beta. Based on how many questions per day they are getting (around 1.5/day), I think it would be a bad idea to split off. Also of note: The proposal Hunting and Fishing has been closed and deleted, as it was also considered a duplicate of The Great ...

 
I stay away from it. I totally support a nonelected dictator group or individual that calls the shots there. Area51 has a very high bandwagon factor.

@Frank I don't use the Timeline bookmarklet that often. My favorite by far are the CV bookmarklets.

also, please pause the cv-requests....we don't cv too much at a time...
 
@InfiniteRecursion why?

@InfiniteRecursion yeah, sorry. They were still active on my flag list, which means no one had cv-d after I flagged.
