Reject and Edit counts toward the ban, @raff. I'll write a full answer when I'm not using a phone to post. — Shog9 ♦ 20 hours ago
is that the one? did you find it?
 
user259867
I don't suppose Shog9 would be looking for a question he answered today. This question is about bans, not a request for data on the effect of the edit reform.
 
user259867
Meta.SE should have the tag to organize such posts.
 
@Louis animuson is a semi-pro Ninja, and Anna is a pro ninja
 
12:19 AM
@Rafflesiaarnoldii has data-analisys
 
^^ Isn't this redundancy redundant?
 
user259867
Yes, but it's not so specific. Data analysis can be based on SEDE or search. I meant the tag to be for questions that ask for data that's available only to employees. Analogy with .
 
@Shog9 maybe it was this one ?
 
@bjb568 I see nothing redundant, repetitive, superfluous, or unnecessary about it.
 
If it's not superfluous then is it subfluous... or maybe just fluous?

A: Do cloned tomatillos pollinate each other?

J. MusserYeah, basically, cuttings are clones, so treat them as one plant when dealing with pollination. If the original plant couldn't self-pollinate, neither will the clones.

@hichris123 Duck is swimming , it's cloudy now like cVplZ's avatar, but you can see the duck :)
 
@hichris123: Don't you like this avatar?
 
@InfiniteRecursion does anyone?
 
@InfiniteRecursion Not enough duck
 
yesterday, by cVplZ
@InfiniteRecursion <3 ur new pic!
 
4:07 AM
@InfiniteRecursion Needs more jQuery
 
user259867
@animuson Does adding the column to group by solve it? There can be multiple columns there.
 
You ate all the ducks @bjb568, we are the only survivors ;)
 
But couldn't it be zoomed in more?
 
No, because we are hiding from you!
@JanDvorak No, OP showed effort and the question was answered without writing a book.
 
4:17 AM
@JanDvorak Yes, effort is irrelevant and the question can't be completely answered without writing a book. Comparison questions are generally off-topic.
 
The clouds are inspired by cVplZ, and he loved this new pic <3
 
@Frank some clouds would look nice in the backdrop of your selfie
 
4:35 AM
I'd let the queue handle that, but it's picked up an upvote since I flagged it
 
@Andy Somebody upvoted that. A moment of silence, please.
 
user259867
@Mooseman What is the reason to close that one?
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii Somebody added the code from their site.

Q: Should questions without code, but an accepted answer, be deleted?

MoosemanExample question: My website appears upside-down. Please fix it. LINK Example (and, theoretically, accepted) answer: I see that you applied transform: rotate(180deg); to body. Just remove that line, and you'll be good. My question: How should these questions and answers be handled ...

 
user259867
This over-simplified example qualifies for "typo" reason. Generally, I'd say that editing a question by including external code is preferable to closing. And it may be easier: one user action instead of 5+ (or 10+ if the question is edited post-closure and qualifies for reopening).
 
4:46 AM
It's gone @Andy

@Mooseman that's not a loophole really, but you can flag as other for a mod to close it, or you could maybe edit it into a better question not asking for that, or you could just do nothing

Q: Eating cat meat as a tourist in Switzerland

Andrew GrimmI've read that cat meat is eaten in Switzerland. Stop eating cats and dogs say animal rights campaigners in Switzerland cites an animal rights activist saying that it's not legal to sell cat meat (presumably it's talking about uncooked meat), but it's legal to eat your own. Are there restaurant...

Q: CSS issue when clicking "add comment"

Ionică BizăuSee the screenshot: Reproduced it here: Removing `border` attribute from table doesn't remove the border Click Add comment (question or answer) link The issue should appear. Using Chromium on elementary OS 0.2 (based on Ubuntu 12.04).

Or anyone with the same problem?
 
I remembered there is a CSS issue with Chromium since new MSO design, but I couldn't remember where I read that.
It's written in the comment thread, so it might be difficult to search

Flags don't expire.
 
ya, but, you can't retract them either
 
Exactly, so there really isn't any urgent need for the cv's. Why are you begging for close? :P
 
@Unihedron it just came to my mind and I wrote it, nothing else
 
in The SO Tavern (Free Snacks) on Stack Overflow Chat, Aug 6 at 12:37, by Stijn
@Unihedron be careful to not spam with cv-pls, especially on that other tavern. It's mostly useful for questions that wouldn't get enough close votes on their own before they expire.
 
@Unihedron ok, I'll keep in mind
 
1:33 PM
Wait, you don't know what cv-pls is for? :P
 
@Unihedron Until now, I thought, that any closeable question, if not getting closed, can be posted here with a link and a reason
 
@DroidDev That was what the PHP room inhabitants worked with as well, until cv-pls.com never cleared itself.
 
@Unihedron on a lighter note: if you see, I never wrote pl"s", I always wrote pl"z" :P
 
There are too many closeworthy questions. :P
@DroidDev Doesn't matter, it's the same since I'm only watching zephyr.
 
oh!
but, it was on lighter note, so you don't need to take it seriously :P

@Unihedron as a moderator I would have merged the user's drink with mine.
@InfiniteRecursion :D
 
@Bart Have you nominated yourself in any of the mod elections till now?
 
Nope
 
Good. Judging by the unpopularity of your meme, that was a very wise decision.
 
I'm not certain meme-worthiness is high on the list of demanded moderator qualities.
Perhaps I should run next time @InfiniteRecursion. If only to draw attention to your meme.

No @Bart, you guys seem to be doing well now. Carry on :)
 
This conversation is very [status-meta].
 
The MSO/MSE split seems to have reduced the Meta drama a fair amount though. Or at least it feels like that. We could use some good ranting users and mod-abuse complaints.

A bounty doesn't stop it from being deleted. Link?
 
Thanks for the confirmation, good to know, and why would you want a link? xD
 
Ah, it's your own answer?
 
Yep
 
Yeah okay. I got confused because of your rep level and deleting answers of others.
So yeah, bounties don't stop you.
 
3:00 PM
Cool, I thought bounties worked like accepting answers.
 
@Unihedron how old was the bounty, did the "winner" lose the rep?
 
@bummi I won the bounty "50 mins ago", I tried deleting the answer to see if it would let me (I've never done that before), I lost no rep but that might be because it was at score of 3
 
interesting, I would imagine that this does not work at as desired

@bummi It vandalizes the answer. Shouldn't it had been rolled back all this time?
 
yes,and then it looks like it would been the original ?
or would it need a flag for merging accounts?
 
I flagged for mods. Looks like user posted from two accounts. They will remove it, if required.
Yes, generally they merge these accounts.
 
...I flagged Inf also .errrr...sorry :P

user259867
Moderators cannot merge users, only SE team has that ability. I left a comment telling the user (registered instance) to contact SE team. Because Shog was complaining the other day about not having enough support mail.
 
user259867
It's not just that, multiple users were shortening the name this way. I figured that R. arnoldii was too formal for conversation.
