@Cupcake That proposal is total crap and if I were Shog9 I'd be ashamed to show my face in chat again too.
SOA = Shog9's On Acid
A sin and a disgrace.
Whadaya do with copies?
@JasonC I think he's probably just on vacation
@iStimple Hackers took over account?
Uh... <script>alert('hackhackhack?')</script> — bjb568 8 hours ago
@iStimple A vacation from sanity.
Can I fork my own query?
Haha... that sounds kinda dirty. But seriously; is there a path to the "fork this query" link for my own queries? I only see "edit query".
just start a new query and copy paste
12:22 AM
You can userscript a fork button.
@JasonC create a new account for an organization ;)

Woah when did we pass 2 million close reviews stackoverflow.com/review/close/stats
Q: Beers for reviews

tarSo it seems that we are crossing the 2-million-reviews milestone. Now, I know that reviews are not rewarded with rep. I would like to suggest that reviewers be rewarded in physical terms to show their value to the Stack Exchange sites! Beers. Beers for reviews, that's a pretty fair trade, ...

How in the world was this question not closed until now stackoverflow.com/q/17049929/2446155
@SantaClaus lack of attention, probably
@JanDvorak Maybe the addition of the why isn't this code working? close reason. I guess it wasn't too horrible at the time.
it was always horrible
maybe not closeable, but it was always horrible.
12:59 AM
@SantaClaus That only happened because SOA wasn't around. If it existed back then I'm sure the OP would have asked how to ask that question first.
@JasonC service-oriented architecture? Sons of Anarchy?
Q: Why doesn't [feature] work in [browser]? It's supposed to be supported

bjb568 This is the canonical duplicate for all questions solvable by adding vendor prefixes. I tried using transition on Firefox 15 and it didn't work even tho it worked on other versions of Firefox and other browsers like Chrome and Safari. Why doesn't it work on Firefox 15? MDN and caniuse say it...

My first canonical dup!
seems too broad. Dupes aren't dupes if you need to know the answer to determine duplicity.
Q: What to do with CSS prefix questions?

Zach SaucierThroughout the time I've been on SO I've ran into numerous questions that can all be fixed by adding the relevant browser prefixes (-webkit-, -moz-, etc.) for the animation and transition properties in particular. In my first month or so on SO I loved seeing these questions because they meant (n...

@JanDvorak Shog9's On Acid = Help Vampires 'r' Us = Our meta is broken so let's rebrand it = Stack Overflow Academy, the worst new site proposal that has ever existed (even if it never makes it to beta the fact that it was suggested can never be undone), which you can find on Area 51, and to which I will not do the justice of actually posting a link.
1:05 AM
@JanDvorak The answer is trivial. I don't see how this is different from NullPointerException.
@bjb568 it may not be trivial to find
though any decent compatibility list notes the prefixes
maybe you should formulate that as "the site told me to use prefixes. What does that mean?"
@JasonC it's the hottest site anyways
@JanDvorak About the same temperature as a large, steaming pile of shit.
@JanDvorak But people ask it in the form of Y U NO WERK.
@JanDvorak Meh. We'll see.
@bjb568 whom are you answering? To those that have an idea what to look for, or to those that don't (and won't recognise it is a dupe)
@JanDvorak Let's be honest, nobody does any research except the people who know what they're doing - the people cleaning up the mess of dups. The CVers will know what to do, the askers won't be affected whatever we do.
Why can't I accept my damn answer on my damn question? 1) It's community wiki. 2) It's a canonical dup. 3) I'm not an idiot. 4) No other answers can be edited since it's locked. I'll go to the whining room...
1:16 AM
wait :-)
I'm waiting...

That one was posted about 15 minutes ago, so I thought everyone here had already seen it.

Do mods lock/unlock all questions repeatedly? stackoverflow.com/posts/25110510/revisions
@bjb568 Worth watching, if you like mysteries. It's set to be my favorite series ever. If you intend to watch it try not to read too much about it, spoilers really will kill it, even though most of the first season can be confusing.
Some of the best storytelling I've seen in a long time, hands down.
It does get pretty gory at times, beware if you have a weak stomach.
The anime is an adaptation of a murder mystery video game.
Hm… interesting.
I can't really summarize the plot well without spoiling it; you kinda just have to dive in.
Does anyone else besides me search their post ids on twitter and see who tweeted about them?
2:40 AM
@SantaClaus No. I don't use twitter.
I guess, it's about this village, where every year people die these mysterious deaths that they believe comes from a curse, and the main characters are this group of kids and this other kid who just recently moved into the village; the idea being you the viewer trying to unravel what is going on.
@bjb568 Vote to delete with no comment
@bjb568 FYI there have been 3 delete votes and 2 looks good on that so far
Make that 5...
@SantaClaus I flagged the answer for mod review with a comment requesting that the "looks good" should be investigated; and links to the user profiles who did it.
@bjb568 There was a reason behind it...
2:45 AM
@JasonC Yeah I was wondering about those also. It borders between a wrong and a bad answer
@bjb568 Why?
@bjb568 I decided to unlock it because the lock was preventing edits and votes on the question
I was going to leave a comment but apparently I forgot
I'm hoping you've flagged one of the posts the user reviewed incorrectly
2:55 AM
@SantaClaus I… haven't.
It's quite simple really: DELETE DELETE DELETE!
@bjb568 I mean, you should flag one of the posts he incorrectly reviewed and state in custom flag that the given user incorrectly reviewed that obviously delete-worthy post. Or just post about it on meta...
(note to mods: don't request any more damn links! :P I gave you plenty)
@bjb568 That works too I guess...
Doesn't matter as long as it gets to the ban hammer.
@bjb568 I thought it was a ban stick
2:59 AM
no, it's a ban hammer
only the CMs get to carry ban sticks, since they're longer you can whack multiple people at once with them
@Undo I don't think whack is the correct term. Maybe poke works better. After all, you're poking them with a sharp stick, not whacking them.
no, we whack them. hard
@Undo Okay okay maybe you are whacking them. But where exactly are you whacking them?
@SantaClaus You don't want to know.
that's mod-only information @Santa
3:03 AM
@Undo I think I can handle the truth
@SantaClaus I think you have enough private information, santa
^ Yeah
I'm fast with the XKCD's ;)

Yosemite awesome

Not when you just had to delete 600+ GB of backups from /Library/Server/Calendar and Contacts/data/
(pronounced YO SEM IT EEE, not YO SEE MITE)
@SantaClaus ugh, Mavericks did that to me once.
the Server/Calendar one

brb booting into beta OS
Y u no Linux?
@Doorknob Mac OSX is better.
Besides, it look kewl.
@Undo Yeah and what was horrible was that all it took to fix is an update to OS X Server. But, for the longest time iOS devs couldn't get server betas
@bjb568 No! You will be assimilated! Resistance is futile!
@Doorknob It's difficult for open-source software to assimilate me

@SantaClaus I don't know!
@Doorknob I find urban dictionary to be useful on this topic. urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=TWSS
@JasonC Well I do know
@SantaClaus Well... your mom! OH SNAP.
@JasonC I don't have a mom. I'm Santa.
3:16 AM
@JasonC Everyone knows everybody's mom.
@bjb568 Yes but not everybody knows everybody's mom like everybody knows your mom. DAAAYYUUMMM.
Or something. What are we even talking about?
Your mom.
(I love this, we're like middleschoolers or something…)
If @undo really was an xkcd expert, he would have brought this up already
@bjb568 And @hichris123 and I here actually are... this situation just seems completely reversed :P
@Doorknob My true identity will never be revealed.
3:21 AM
@Doorknob My true identity will be revealed in… soon (i.e. months).
@bjb568 I hate that. "We're acting like middleschoolers because we're talking about your mom and making poop jokes." No we're not. We're acting our age. Because we totally are talking about your mom and making poop jokes, and we totally are our age.
@Doorknob LIES! I'm going to high school uhm... next week?
I mean I guess we weren't actually making poop jokes. Sorry I got carried away.
@JasonC Like yo mama's poop!
3:22 AM
@hichris123 Your school starts in a week? Mine doesn't until in... 3 or 4 weeks? And I'll still only be in 8th grade :P
Are you guys seriously young? I can't tell on the internet.
@SantaClaus Jon Stewart; also Louis CK (the real star there)
@Doorknob 10 days sigh But we get out like May 30th
@bjb Yes, I actually am 13.
3:24 AM
@bjb568 I didn't get to read that you deleted it so fast
@bjb568 I'll tell you a secret: I'm not actually a doorknob. :O
But yes, I am 13.
Nope, it'll never die.
@JasonC oh I really don't like you...
Haha and I was gonna remove it too.

Uh oh.

Privileges as in privileges.
@Doorknob A high privilege.

@Doorknob Well, we are.
@bjb568 We also get to do fun stuff like this :D

It's not like the massive set of removed messages will raise any eyebrows...

Uhhh... @Shog9, don't scroll up
Yes @Shog9 Don't scroll up
@Doorknob Isn't that because you're a mod in Puzzling?

The rest of the vacation was quite restful.
Oh a swirlie.

@Shog9 I'm not. But how many?
The "related words" section of urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=swirlie is good also.
@bjb568 no, I mean we don't track it
3:39 AM
@Shog9 Which is why I said "approximately".
I could probably get a number if I needed it, but... Never needed it.
its pretty rare
^ not surprising
Aw… More programming education for young people! I need to get some young 'uns on the internet…

@SantaClaus Eeuuggh we were force to use that in a "computer literacy" class once. That was torture. Why would you even... just, no.
@bjb568 Well, I find a lot of questions that seem like they were written by 5 year olds
@SantaClaus SOA will totally solve that.
@JasonC Mmm hmm…
@JasonC Mmm hmm...
@JasonC Mmm hmm...
Hey you can totally ring your own bell.

@Doorknob Yep.
@SantaClaus I mean minestorms, tetrix, codecademy, khanacademy, high-level languages like python, ECMAScript, Ruby, etc.
@bjb568 Yup.
@Doorknob You can even ping messages in the future.
Like this!

Aw man. Fail.
@SantaClaus what's really shocking is how often 12 year olds write better than 50+ year olds.
3:45 AM
@bjb568 It's from Star Trek and it's awesome.
@Shog9 I can relate to that
@Shog9 Yeah, that's called "idiots". Sadly, they make up a large %age of SO.
@bjb568 Well, then there's the 94 year olds...
@SantaClaus Well, to pick nits, that's still a 50+.

I was wondering about recently I have found a SO-specific question ban warning (just a warning) when I was about to ask a question. I never saw anything like this a week ago. I know I have a few very highly disagreed-with suggestions on MSO, but how should just those three (not ultra-recent) just now affect my ability to ask constructive questions on the main site?
@impinball Well, the system doesn't necessarily determine weather the question is constructive or not. I think it's just warning you that if you ask another bad question, you may get banned.
I was banned once, and then I figured it out. (Somehow they thought they could ban Santa)
We locked the doors but forgot to block up the chimney. Rookie mistake.
Also, on a more direct topic, would a question asking the difference between Array.map(foo).reduce(bar) and Array.reduce(function (e){return bar(foo(e));}) in JavaScript be better for SO or Programmers.SE?

@InfiniteRecursion If you actually look at the survey it also implies that Programmers, DBA, Server Fault, and SU were targets for his survey too. I couldn't find any posts there so if they existed they must've been caught already. But that guy needs to not be allowed to come back here any more.
@JasonC Yeah, hope someone stops her from coming back. That user doesn't even know how to write a question fit for Q&A, how will they do survey on SE? Look at all that fluff in her posts.. I just come across this user's survey posts very frequently, but I never opened any of the survey links. I avoid such stuff
