don't waste votes plz
Especially precious del votes.
^ yes, those. Not to be used on roomba-able questions. And those with 20K should avoid LQRQ until using up delete votes.
maybe there should be a 10 commandments for advanced users? that would contain this useful info
s/advanced users/meta police/
1. Use all your votes. And don't waste any.
2. Don't use LQRQ until after using votes.
4. You better be responsive with delv reqs.
5. When reviewing answers, consider whether or not the question can be deleted.
6. Don't handle my chat flags badly.
8. You're not better. Act like you're not.
9. Screenshot the deleted post on meta.
10. Stop rep whoring.
12:09 AM
But 3 helps ur deleted meta posts get undeleted, if roomba takes them.
I'm talking about the ones where deleted comments make things go out of context and everything is skewed in their favor because of gang voting and meta harassment.
Yes, that happens when chat.so rooms are involved.
Then replace 3 with "ignore chat.so rooms".
Which is a shame because it has one of the more poetic Shog's comments.

@Behaviour whoosh
(opposite of kaboom)
Now who's going to post some answer there, so it does not get deleted again?
Not me.

@SmokeDetector ignore
Is that how you do it?
I can't keep track of these bots.
@SmokeDetector ignore
@Sompuperoo Post ignored; alerts about it will not longer be posted.
Oh, I just can't.
Why not?
@bjb568 need to get permission from someone
12:46 AM
Who do I ping?
"I want to permissions"?
also, *Whom
Nobody says whom.
Don't be prescriitiveist .
Or whatever
@bjb568 that's not even a real word?
In linguistics, prescription or prescriptivism is the practice of championing one variety or manner of speaking of a language against another. It may imply a view that some forms are incorrect, improper, illogical, lack communicative effect, or are of low aesthetic value. Sometimes it is informed by linguistic purism. These normative practices may address such aspects of language use as spelling, grammar, semantics, pronunciation, and syntax. Linguistic prescriptivism includes judgments on what usages are socially proper and politically correct. Its aims may be to establish a standard language...

Q: Does the brain limit muscle strength in humans, but not in other apes?

Anyway, I flagged it abuse.

@bjb568 because you suck at flagging?
I don't suck.

I see, I wasn't exactly right re: pinging Undo, the list of priv users is there in Github, so can be modified by any of the contibutors to Smokey source. I somehow imagined it being held in a super-secret directory on Undo's server running Smokey.

1:10 AM
The Wikipedia pages being Stack Overflow, MathOverflow, Ask Ubuntu.
The Ubuntu page has a link to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Collins_(programmer). But it's just a redirect, @BenCollins
@Behaviour What's with that "history" section on the SO page? O_o
> Stack Overflow, a forum
> Questions ... are usually closed by a down voting process carried out by the site's participants.
1:14 AM
SE modled after SO?
Well, SO came first.
Site creation process: Graduation?
@Doorknob冰 But SO is part of SE, so I wouldn't say that SE was modeled after SO.
!comp tell me a physics joke
Q: What did the quantum physicist say to get her kids out of bed in the morning?
A: Up and atom!
> Stack Overflow is a privately held website, the flagship site of the Stack Exchange Network,[5][6] created in 2008 by Jeff Atwood and Joel Spolsky,[7][8] as a more open alternative to earlier Q&A sites such as Experts Exchange.
Experts Exchange.
I thot it was expertsexchange
Hyphen, for crying out loud! :P
1:16 AM
@Behaviour differen Ben Collins. I'm also a famous race car driver :-)
@bjb568 If I create a hat, and then create an entire fashion line after that hat becomes popular, do we say that I modeled the hat to be in my fashion or that my fashion line was modeled after my hat?
@bjb568 First came SO. Later came the idea to create SF and SU, which were modeled after SO. Then came the idea to sell the platform as service (SE 1.0). It led to a few decent projects, but for the most part was not a success. After that, Area 51 was created, heralding the era of SE 2.0.
!comp tell me a programming joke
> The Stack Overflow team has recently[when?] begun the creation of an API for accessing the data contained on the other sites. Discussion on Stack Apps centers around the API, although users are encouraged to list apps and libraries developed for the API.
!comp the answer to life, the universe, and everything
1:17 AM
(according to Douglas Adams' humorous science-fiction novel The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)
Yes, the SE Wikipedia page does not meet the quality standards of SE.
@anorton I'd say you created a fashion, of which the hat was the first product.
Hm. Ok, I guess we'd say different things, then...
@anorton Do you think Mathematics deserves its own Wikipedia page?
Wikipedia generally does a bad job with anything tech related.
Like… what's the point of it?
1:20 AM
So your bot can find it.
I think there should only be Wikipedia pages for Stack Exchange and S[OFU]
Maybe -SF -SU
@Behaviour Of course I think Mathematics deserves a wiki! :)
!comp tell me a joke.
It is the third largest site in the network (sorry SF).
Q: Why did the mathematician name his dog "Cauchy?" A: Because he left a residue at every pole.

@anorton Second.
Really? Wow.

Q: What is brown, furry, runs to the sea, and is equivalent to the axiom of choice? A: Zorn's lemming.

@anorton By the number of questions, number of answers, number of questions per day... second to only SO in all these categories. But not as many users or visits per day.

I was hoping that !vote would let me vote as bjb on SO. :)
@ArceusMaster0493 Yes, everyone's here. You have a question?
What are these?

@anorton no

@Doorknob冰 not sure why not showing the right stuff , like "calculate"
@Sompuperoo It doesn't seem to like blanks at the end of a word
@Sompuperoo It sees it as al__la_
It doesn't see markdown.
@bjb568 It also ignores ?s at the end of a word.
This is a test
1:47 AM
It worked!
Posted an answer to prevent Shog's comment from disappearing again.
Just got the annual end-of-year blagging report from Wordpress. None of the 5 most-read posts this year were written in 2014. Time to retire, I guess.
@anorton Any idea how many views Math blog is getting? Or who would even know such a thing?
