Q: Daily reputation limit of 200 points

MartyAs a relatively new user, I'm curious about something I read in the help topics about reputation points. The help text states: You can earn a maximum of 200 reputation per day from any combination of the activities below. Bounty awards, accepted answers, and association bonuses are not subject ...

@iStimple I just tried running a query for Jon Skeet, it really is too slow, he has too many answers, you'd have to process them in smaller batches.
 
@bjb568 Still not working for me: TypeError: undefined is not an object (evaluating 'unsafeWindow.fkey.value')
Appending a script might have been more reliable (sorry).
 
12:22 AM
How?!
Just how?!
By the way, I've seen 3 edits from that user only removing the tag name from the title (nothing else), so watch out for that.
 
1:23 AM
@AstroCB there was anything else to improve that the editor missed?
 
@Braiam The wording at the bottom could certainly be modified: deleting four characters isn't worth the two rep he got for the edit.
It's mostly a problem because he's done the same on a few other posts.

Dear Apple: when I update iTunes, I most assuredly don't need to restart my computer. If you think I do, then you either need to better understand Windows, or fix your stupidly bloated software that I only use because the music I want isn't on Google Play Music.
^ that always puzzled me... can anyone explain why?!?
 
1:38 AM
@AstroCB Heh? Works on Ninjakit on Safari. You can try unsafeWindow.fkey().fkey. Or grab the hidden input element thru document.
@AstroCB Inviting them to the robo party...
 
@bjb568 [Error] TypeError: HTMLInputElement is not a function (evaluating 'unsafeWindow.fkey()')
 
@bjb568 It...auto-downvotes?
Weird: no errors now, but all it does is downvotes.
Flags, too, but doesn't post to chat.
I'm not liking how you don't know who reviews VLQ flags anymore: now that mods are handling them, I'm hesitating to flag that way because I know that the review queue will delete them, but mods will decline the flag.
Why was my NAA flag on this declined? stackoverflow.com/a/24263619/3366929
 
1:53 AM
@AstroCB Sometimes. Sometimes they all get approved (some disputed).
@AstroCB It is an answer (however low quality blah blah blah).
 
@bjb568 If it makes sense to delete, though, it will be deleted. Mods are looking for specific things, and not all NAA/VLQ have them.
@bjb568 But it's not. The question has three other perfectly fine/acceptable answers and that should be an edit, not an answer.
 
@AstroCB Almost all questions on the home page should be deleted.
@AstroCB "This fixed it" is an answer.
 
@bjb568 Your edit makes it seem more that way, but it certainly didn't seem like it when I came across it.
Using this, I might add.
 
@bjb568 How about this: VLQ is for things that cannot ever be salvaged. If the close reason is 'why isn't this code working... requires code' or Unclear what you're asking, it's automatically salvageable.
Really, nothing except for gibberish and really horrible stuff (really bad questions) should be flagged VLQ if it's a question.
 
Like really really horrible stuff that should disappear like now.
 
1:59 AM
stackoverflow.com/questions - anyone else seeing really old questions there?
 
Also, since when did I get to undelete-vote my own posts?
 
Since always.
At least a year+.
 
Really? Never noticed it…
I remember last time I tried to undelete it I had to flag for a mod since it was deleted by a mod (Community user).
 
2:01 AM
Well, you haven't had many questions deleted. :P
 
Huh, I guess.
I got plenty of self-deletes on SO tho… From the dark ages…
^ Robos. Flag for mod, I gtg.
 
See ya!
 
@bjb568 Definitely this one: he approves all of the "too minor" edits.
@bjb568 All of the reviewers on this edit need to be invited to the robo room.

@AstroCB It also probably injects into the revision history.
 
@hichris123 Nope: there's no .post-taglist there (it must use a different class for the toolbar there).
[Error] undefined is not an object (evaluating 'document.getElementsByClassName("post-taglist")[0].children')
Yes: it uses .post-menu.
@bjb568 Needs to make the @include more specific.
Or at least check to see whether .post-taglist exists before trying to modify it.

3:58 AM
@bjb568 That question was asked earlier, but the OP found the older question and voted to close it as a duplicate of his own because his was better-worded: look at the comments for an explanation.
 
@AstroCB That's 3 pings.
 
@bjb568 Four (now it's five)(now it's six).
 
tripledash ---tripledash---
@AstroCB // @include /^https?:\/\/stackoverflow.com\/questions\/\d/
Y U NO WERK?
 
Is that regex?
 
4:03 AM
Why does my regex never work? Ugh.
@Unihedron Not AstroCB's solution. Mine is.
It's like a write a regex with \d and it's like Y U NO WERK? Well, \d doesn't match hex numbers… :P
 
@bjb568 I couldn't get it to work, either, so I was just about to tell you to use @exclude.
 
I blame Ninjakit.
 
@Unihedron you must feel dirty...
 
@bjb568 Also, make sure you check if(document.getElementsByClassName("post-menu")){...} so that you're not trying to do it on pages where it doesn't exist.
 
@AstroCB Where would it not exist? Deleted posts? Does it even matter?
 
4:10 AM
Where can I get Core Training Testcore pro?
 
@AstroCB gone
 
@bjb568 Revision history (unless you make the @include more specific).
 
@Unihedron This?
@AstroCB Ugh, K.
in Please don't approve minor or invalid edits on Stack Overflow Chat, 13 secs ago, by Mike Precup
Fair enough, I'll be less lenient on minor edits.
^ I feel like a dirty priest, converting everyone to my way.
Of course my way makes sense, but I still feel wrong somehow.
And right at the same time.
 
1 hour ago, by hichris123
@AstroCB It also probably injects into the revision history.
 
@AstroCB Nah, it just does nothing. Strange how there isn't even an error.
 
4:14 AM
@bjb568 I'm conflicted too, now that I can actually review suggested edits and I don't have to make them. I appreciate minor edits, but they're not worth 2 rep and I leave comments for the people who suggest them on the posts telling them so. There's just too much wrong with the post to only fix one typo or add one tag.
@bjb568 It gave me errors.
 
@bjb568 I'm pretty sure we use the same browser.
 
@AstroCB Are you using ninjakit?
 
@bjb568 Yes.
 
@AstroCB Yeah. On one hand, it's an improvement. On the other hand, 2 rep, bump, wastes reviewer's time…

[Error] undefined is not an object (evaluating 'document.getElementsByClassName("post-taglist")[0].children')
 
@AstroCB Then upgrade it. Or downgrade it or whatever to what I have.
 
@AstroCB [improve]
 
@AstroCB Fine… :P
 
Once you improve it it immedialy passes
 
@Unihedron It immediately passes without you improving it. Or rejecting it. Or doing anything for that matter, too many robos.
damn you autocorrect
Does return; in global GM scope stop executing? Or do I have to make a long if?
It stops executing!
 
4:19 AM
@bjb568 Race to improve, uncheck the box, and add a trailing new line?
 
@bjb568 Post-to-chat still isn't working for me.
 
@Unihedron Meeeeeh.
 
@Unihedron That's vandalism.
 
What?!
 
4:21 AM
@Unihedron Inserting random formatting like bolding things that shouldn't be bold is considered vandalism.
 
@bjb568 Ah, yes, I overlooked to race. Sorreh.
 
Invited the approver to the robo room.

Made 2 meta posts about it.
The mods need examples.
EEEEEEXAMPLESSSSS!
@AstroCB About the chat posting not working, did you try console.logging response.responseText.match(/hidden" value="([\dabcdef]{32})/)[1] in the onload of the GET ajax request and comparing it to the fkey that you get with fkey().fkey typed into the console?

Saw it while it was in the queue

At least the editor went back and fixed it:

Sort of.

Review bans for everyone who approved that one as well :P
 
He has to propose three edits in a row?!
I improve-rejected his last one, since he didn't deserve 6 rep (imho)

@Sumurai8 I was actually editing that post when that edit got approved.
 
@Cupcake lol

Can someone flag that post for mod attention that the comments need cleanup.
 
Sam
He completely ignored the other problems with that post as well.

And mention to give bans to the reviewers who approved that 2nd edit.
 
user163250
I can't flag the post twice, I already flagged it because of the first bad edit.
 
Place the moderator attention flag on a comment or the main post?

Hey, your block quote that says "The ThreadAbortException is thrown when you make a call to Response.Redirect(url)...", do you remember where you got that from? I'm having trouble trying to find the original source of that quote through Google, because it's actually been plagiarized a lot by multiple people :/Cupcake 1 min ago

I hope the OP remembers :P

@Unihedron He's basically rolling back my edit, and blockquoting the code.
 
@Sam In order words, farming rep by exploiting the reviewers.

I like the "Many thanks." he added at the end.

@Cupcake It's funny how these plagerizers will copy the answer , and leave in the Update or EDIT , when they never made an edit to the answer obviously.
So maybe a query choosing answers that include UPDATE or EDIT in them but have never actually been edited could also help to find plagiarized posts.
 
I see what you mean now. Statistically, it will be more accurate!
 
@Unihedron only thing is if a user did in fact make an edit , but it was < 5 minutes after posting , so it doesn't show up. Not sure if SEDE includes those edits or not, probly not.
