Nice, can't give code, but still wants us to fix it ;)
 
@Jan I deleted my comment here because I realized that OP is old enough member to know it themself.
 
wow, @Inf is winning best hat by far this year so far meta.stackoverflow.com/a/280929/3041194
 
downvotes all the + and upvotes all with - votes on that post :P
later tells everyone that he was actually kidding
 
11:07 AM
@Sompuperoo That question is so... Not interesting.
 
gets so much irritated, that creates an account in the end
 
It's more interesting than this one @uni
 
Breaking news! Meta questions quality are in decline as users hunt for hats!
 
That is not only true for Meta....
 
11:15 AM
YAY! honestly earned Chameleon hat!
 
Me too, when bluefeet convinced me to become duck again.
 
@InfiniteRecursion yea, you're much more easier to tolerate when you are a little duckling
jk @inf, just a joke
 
Ever since my "RTFM!" emails are read and my classmates respond "what's RTFM?", my number of "STFW!" emails sent every day sa drastically increaseed.

#1 smells rec-tooly
 
I already added some votes on them
 
the first 3 smell like that, the 4th is too broad
 
@bummi This last one attracted spam. In fact, most of that user's answers are spam.
 
That's how I found it, but he disclosed and the questions are bad, so I did not flag
 
11:37 AM
Interesting. Curious what others are thinking.
 
Raise a custom mod flag, but not spam flag. Unless it's obvious spam like skin care or designer handbags, spam flags shouldn't be used because they have severe penalties.
 
I raised to much others for things like this ... lets close the questions?
 
Sorry @Sompuperoo, I won't accept your invitation. (hides)
 
@InfiniteRecursion ?
 
invitation to the den
Yes @bummi, cv'ed
 
11:43 AM
@InfiniteRecursion thx
 
Is it a good time to wake @bjb568?
 
I don't think @bjb568 will be very happy with all these pings :/
 
59 mins ago, by Sompuperoo
@bjb568 where are you? Did you wake up already? You're not in here! Don't ignore our pings @bjb568!
he must already be up/ turned computer off/ something since he's not in here
 
bjb just joined!

@DroidDev He wanted genuine pings. If we ping manually, it's going to be spontaneous, can't be avoided.
 
Easy enough to create a snooze bot
 
And he got a beautiful morning train, so he can't complain.
 
@InfiniteRecursion but...why....why would you break it...why...? :'(
 
He wants the human factor @ShadowWizard
 
@Shog9 is Sean Gallagher still working for Stack Exchange?

@DroidDev <evil grin/>
 
12:22 PM
I sense a close re-open war, starting soon...
 
I have another answer, plze reopen
 
@DroidDev indeed
 
@Sompuperoo post that quickly....
 
@Sompuperoo yeah, but he's not active for looong time and I think he no longer works for SE, in which case that page needs to be updated.
 
@rene tytyty, even Laszlo voted to reopen
 
12:27 PM
@Sompuperoo he must be drunk! :D
 
Yeah, in the end we are not that evil or drunk...
 
@ShadowWizard or trying to start a riot?
 
Voted-to-close ...
 
re-open vote ready
 
Still some votes missing for my last request on 4 questions
 
12:29 PM
@Bart shouldn't you be wearing those glasses on your hat? rather then a hat on your glasses
that will look cooler, Chameleon wearing glasses
 
I'll make it a feature request @DroidDev
 
You've been nominated for best use of hat! Congrats! meta.stackoverflow.com/a/280946/3041194Sompuperoo 20 secs ago
 
lol, ya great idea!
 
To bad I can't vtc the hat poll as a dupe of this
 
12:33 PM
@Bart ^
 
there seems to be a scrooge downvoting all the best use of hats posts
Can I create my own Law? Like the longer a Christmas argument goes on, the better the odds that someone mentions Scrooge or Scrooge like behavior?
 
we should propose a mod only meta-tag called status-it's-safary-fault
 
@Braiam did you mean perhaps?
 
I prefer that Laura once tried to create :D
 
@MartijnPieters you know that markdown sucks... so I can't manipulate the link tag: produce
 
12:41 PM
@ShadowWizard when I am mod, I'll have to add
 
on a totally irrelevant note: what about
 
you know... we have to provide context in the Tavern
 
@MartijnPieters I don't think mods can create new mod-only tags :(
need dev magic for this ^
 
@ShadowWizard well, they should be able to. So there.
 
@DroidDev that would be awesome, but must be limited to only level 10 ninjas and above like @AnnaLear
 
12:43 PM
@Sompuperoo oh! that means, even after proposing it, I'll have to earn repz to use it...
 
@Sompuperoo careful, you don't want to irritate @Anna with useless pings! :D
 
@ShadowWizard just like we don't want to wake @bjb568 up, with all these pings ;)
 
@Sompuperoo Fun fun escape! Take your emergency corporate man Tie set! If they see you laughing it is the end! you will be forever labelled as a kid! Downvote! act like the pack! blend in the crowd!
 
@DroidDev true, or irritate @Uni and @Sil ;)
 
12:47 PM
@ShadowWizard ya, even @Inf don't like to be pinged!
 
@DroidDev true, I don't dare pinging @Inf for no good reason!

isn't that the most basic programming thing?
 
1:12 PM
some vamps!
 
@InfiniteRecursion baby wipes
 
baby wipes again? /sigh
 
@Bart you mean duct tape, right, it has to be duct tape
 
@DroidDev if that is the level needed in the smart developers lab I hope none of them will ever program anything that ends up in a machine that should keep me alive....
 
1:17 PM
@Bart ... or a chameleon to hide the duct tape
 
@rene or dead, like a rocket

1:21 PM
@InfiniteRecursion While a comment says it's legit, I... am still not going to try it.

@rene there are good programmers there too...but they just keep feeding help vamps
 
@ProgramFOX me too. I have much better use for my urine.
 
@rene I left the "Smart" Developers Lab quite a while ago. Surprisingly, it's the first room that I ever actually left after joining.
 
@ShadowWizard much better use? :O
 
@ShadowWizard Ah! When you're thirsty and have no water, right?
:P
 
1:24 PM
@ProgramFOX MAN vs WILD
 
@ProgramFOX that's one! And if you prepare a salad and stuck without salt.... :P
 
@DroidDev MAN vs WILD coders edition
 
@Unihedro Does this mean you're now beyond smart?
 
@rene no... staying in the room for over five minutes makes you feel so much smarter than all, I couldn't bear it
 
1:27 PM
lol
 
I like how it's a gallery room now - still doesn't change that nature
 
Lesson -420: How to feed a help vamp:
in Java and Android era on Stack Overflow Chat, 1 min ago, by iAnum
well instead of running for loop, i think u should run that code with time, not inside for loop. I mean to say instead of updating ur timer in for loop 100 times, call this code sequentially after some millisec. Got my idea @ErumHannan ?
 
pukes blood
 
You are in a lot of rooms @uni, you should try leaving a few more :)
 
@DroidDev tell me he's, you know... trolling
 
1:30 PM
@Braiam no he's serious
iAnum is one of the more "I can compile a program properly most of the time" coders - the rest are no match to his skills
 
with that terrible solution? I too thought he is trolling the help vamp
 
@Braiam well....you'll be even more surprised, when I'll tell you, that he is trying to help that vamp from about last one hour or so...
 
anyways, they deserve each other
2
 
@InfiniteRecursion Thats the smart developers' lab in a nutshell for ya...
 
@Unihedro nope, the feeding is up in Java and Android era room
my comment in smart developers' lab stopped the feeding
 
1:32 PM
Sigh. Poor me a long one, bartender
 
What's with all that textspeak and "u" instead of "you" in that room. I don't really like reading a conversation with (almost) only textspeak.
 
although, I missed it in other
 
@DroidDev You haven't seen actual feeding until you hang out in RegEx - Regular Expressions.
 
@Unihedro lol, thank god I don't go to much rooms
 
No feeding here though :)
 
1:34 PM
ha! we only hit noobs with downvotes and closevotes! :D
 
@ShadowWizard how could you say that?
 
meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/280924/… ... what a stuffy old place :( Seriously, what harm would it have done to just let that be?
 
we keep feeding @Bart with stars
 
Most of the time:
- hallo i wants to match digits and letters where there is at least a zero pls gimme the regex
- (?=[^\W_]*0)[^\W_]+
- why doesn't it work on aaaa01111 - it should fail becuz zero is in front
(facepalm)
(box = own, cross = dead)
 
If a vamp comes here, Jan will scare him off @ShadowWizard :D

eh... closed already
 
oh! in that case
 
@Unihedro -1, your hat got wrong z-index
 
1:38 PM
@ShadowWizard he's trying to imitate Bart i.stack.imgur.com/pkHvc.png
 
@ShadowWizard hats are wrapped in display: block;, it won't show up in front of the avatar after color inversion css
 
@DroidDev I read that at first as "we only hit boobs" and had to read again :P
 
and me as the userstyle author am too lazy to fix
 
@ShadowWizard ROFL! lolmollolmol! That's den effect for you... :D
 
@DroidDev yeah.... guess that's the reason :D
 
1:40 PM
Den is one place, where we extract everybody's inner child up :D

I gave up trying to find spells.
 
@Unihedro Heh. I can give 3 hints per spell.
 
@Unihedro which spells? There are two kinds.
@Unihedro "Pony" spell is now trivial, just take a look in recent messages
 
today, we found the way to get one!
 
Anyhow, @Sompuperoo, @rene, thanks for taking it in the spirit it was intended. C'est la vie I guess.
 
1:47 PM
@DroidDev as anticipated ;)
 
@bummi not really a fair fight I'd say
 
@ShadowWizard Why?
 
@bummi lol, so, at last, it has started. Thank god, because of my less repz, I don't have to make a decision. I don't like these kind of fights
 
@bummi reopen needs 5 users, delete only 3
fun fighters are outnumbered

@bummi @DroidDev If I could "totally delete" that question, I would. I'm not at all keen to be the starter of some open/close fight. A bunch of people made some points, and the umpire ruled "delete". I think it should be left at that. I don't particularly like it, but it certainly wasn't my intent to post a question that pissed people off as much as that one appeared to. I'm surprised, older, and wiser. If someone has the power to permanently delete it, by all means do.
 
@GreenAsJade I have neutral opinion about your question there. Not much to say. Although, those close/open war statements were not related in any way to the question that should/should not be asked on MSO. That would be same for any other question in same situation
 
@GreenAsJade many strange happened since we have hats ... happens ;)
 
@gunr2171 One to go.
 
thanks
 
2:57 PM
Sure. The passion of people against that post was remarkable. But - an open/close war would be silly and probably just piss people off more, which is counter to any sort of fun. By the way, I selected "I hate hats", and I see I still have a hat here in Tavern. I daren't submit a bug report though: after a third negative rated question on MSO, I might get really zapped! ;)
 
@GreenAsJade haha! don't take it personally. No downvote/closevote on that question was in any way related to you. It was just the opinion of some community members and that's the only way(closevotes/downvotes or upvotes/re-open votes), to show the opinion on meta
 
@GreenAsJade I choose like hats, but don't really care about, meanwhile I'm not sure if hats in general are a good idea, too many manipulations, to much talk about and so on.
@DroidDev And here it is nice to see how mixed the community indeed is
 
I tend to agree @bummi. Nice idea in principle. @DroidDev, Mr 14mpi's comments were pretty passionate and personal. The rest I agree were just about the principle of the thing, which was tested and (IMO) found to be not acceptable. If the balance of votes on the actual question had been different, it might have been another thing.
 
@bummi well...yes, but, noone carries any harm or personal intention against anybody. They are just all working towards the betterment of community in what they think is a good way.
 
Yes, and people who think differently can bugger off to reddit ;)
 
3:05 PM
@DroidDev indeed democracy ;)
@GreenAsJade you might flag after reopen (I'd take obsolete, to avoid punishment)
 
@GreenAsJade Go to Reddit is usually used for people, when someone think that they are using site for opinionative things and well...about the personal comments, nothing someone wrote on internet against anyone will affect other in real life. :)
 
... why reflagging 3 times?
 
They're three different abusive posts by the same user.
 
Low Quality A (100%): **** ** ************ ***** ********, by ****, on cooking.stackexchange.com.
 
3:09 PM
oh
 
Islam mods, wth? 1. The posts were abusive, you should had marked the flag as helpful. 2. If you're declining the flag, why go delete them anyway?
 
Anyhow, I just got up (1am here) to say I think that an open/close war would be pointless, so if my opinion counts for anything, or if there's any button I can click to stop it, that'd be good. 17 nos vs 11 yesses means more than 5 open to 3 close or whatever. "night" all.

@Moo BTW, TPing from the Tavern is redundant. As the TPA command (which is used to get it reposted in here) also combines the actions of the TP command.
