OK

Morning btw
 
@rene Morning
 
Good Morning @all
@lostsock down
 
@JanDvorak I am able to identify very few Taverners drupal.stackexchange.com/help/badges/68/deputy
 
@InfiniteRecursion define "very few". Nearly 10% isn't bad
 
7:31 AM
@JanDvorak define "most often to the taverners", 3/41 is very few in my definition
 
Hmm... Is rolling back a BalusC-edit playing with fire?
@InfiniteRecursion I'd say it isn't half bad, when thinking that taverners (probably) aren't active on drupal at all....
aside from spam-killing that is.
 
@Vogel612 there's an autoflag for rollback wars and a reversal script for serial voting. I'd say go ahead.
 
@JanDvorak well I partly reapplied it, but I think I properly need to draw the line on what kind of edits to my questions I want and what kind I don't want...
It's not nice If he removes 4 / 5 tags from my question...
 
@InfiniteRecursion Hey I'm on there! :D
 
@Unihedron Jan, you and I
 
7:37 AM
@Vogel612 don't let user reputation intimidate you, if you think an edit made on your post is invalid roll it back. Period.
 
okay this seeems to be getting out of hand..
 
What's the situation?
 
wait until it falls on the ground, then kick it far away.
 
@Vogel612 either he will give up and move on, or keep fighting then a moderator will step in and decide what to do. IMO you should not give up just because the other user has more rep.
 
I just wrote up a long post, I bet I missed something.
 
Oh I see..
 
Dear @BalusC please provide more reasoning when reapplying an Edit I rolled back. I appreciate, that you are interested in question quality, but it seems that we have a different understanding of how tagging should work :( If you reapply the same edits again, without any further reasoning I will flag this for moderator attention. If you want to discuss this I can be found in Stack Overflow Chat ;) — Vogel612 31 secs ago
 
But it's a self answered post with incorrect tags, why do you want to keep JSF and Jboss?
 
because the problem includes expertise specific to jboss 7 and I only do this to have it look nice with jsf...
I figure these tags are thus relevant.
 
7:42 AM
in case anyone missed it, the new off topic close reason id for tool/rec is 16, use to be 14, before that 8
 
while they may not pertain to the problem at hand, I think they are relevant for context
 
@Vogel612 er... I disagree, at least with the second part
 
@Vogel612 I disagree too, that is an incorrect use of tags
 
also, "intrusive use" wasn't nice of you
 
I think removing 4 of 5 tags is intrusive...
 
but it seems that I don't understand the way tagging works around here :(
 
> Daily close vote limit reached; please try again in 16 hours
 
@Vogel612 number doesnot matter, those tags are not related to your post, please roll back the edit...
 
@Vogel612 not if the tags are bogus
 
7:45 AM
@JanDvorak bogus is not nice either ;)
I feel like the tags are relevant "trivia" to the question..
 
bogus is blatant but true
 
they are adding context and getting eyes from people that have expertise in the field related...
 
@Vogel612 yes, BaluC is one of the top experts in JSF, it caught his eyes. Use bounties to get audience, please DON'T abuse tags
 
@InfiniteRecursion please read the question. I am going through the whole hassle to have it play nice with jsf and thus was thinking the tagging is appropriate...
I am aware that BalusC is an expert
 
@Vogel612 "getting eyes" is a bogus reason to use a tag
3
 
7:49 AM
I believe that his expertise may be helpful in answering the question, not because he also knows other things, but specifically because he is a jsf-expert.
@JanDvorak the formulation wasn't good :(....
 
@Vogel612 how does JSF expertise help answer your question?
 
8:07 AM
@InfiniteRecursion Silently hides Infinite crib
 
@JanDvorak I figured that the jsf spec requires a specific syntax for the thing I wanted to generate...

Hey guys, anyone is familiar with AngularJS by any chance?
 
@ShadowWizard Started to use it just recently. On SharePoint (I am brave, I'm not?)
 
@SPArchaeologist wow, Angular with SharePoint sounds like a sure recipe for disasters
working with Angular templates perhaps?
 
9:32 AM
@ShadowWizard Actually, it worked pretty well. Haven't done much to be honest - just displaying data from a json web service (hosted on SharePoint too) in a web part.
It allowed me to develop an "app" (== a solution that doesn't have anything to do with SP and probably should have been deployed somewhere else but the sales department managed to sold as "SharePoint enabled" because "we will cut times and costs") as a single web part with multiple views, no postbacks.
@ShadowWizard still new to it. Used views with routing and some templates for pop-ups.
 
Hiya @Bart
 
@ShadowWizard I know Knockout, it's similar, perhaps I can help.

@balpha Are you developer folks willing to run queries (on an occasional basis) that aren't possible in SEDE for privacy reasons? This relates to my meta question (meta.stackexchange.com/questions/239991/…). I want to see how many people we've got who are afraid of pressing the down-vote button on answers.
But it doesn't seem to be possible to run such a query in SEDE, due to understandable anonymisation of the voting table.
 
@Duncan please don't take this personal, but... Your feature request seems to be a xy problem...
 
9:57 AM
@Duncan Unclear what you're asking?
 
additionally there's stuff like bad questions with good answers, so...
 
Here have link @Vog http://xyproblem.info/
 
Not sure how it's an XY problem - can you explain further?
 
You want to fix some problem you noticed
 
(Note: I'm quite familiar with what XY problems are - I point them out often myself. Wondering how it applies here).
 
9:58 AM
oooohhhh
 
@Braiam: Write a FAQ for AU users plox! They keep on editing spam, few minutes ago they edited escort spam
 
w8..... rereading that it seems like your problem is not a problem at all...
--> why should anyone actually care whether users downvote answers or not?? or rather why would you check that against question downvotes`?
 
That moment when you forget the password to your own site. I'm so stupid.
 
@Vogel612 Perhaps my question needs some further back story. I wanted to raise the question of whether answer down-votes should be free, provided you haven't supplied an answer yourself. The goal behind the query was to provide some sort of proof that lots of people avoid down-voting answers because they are scared of the -1.
The idea is - if they are willing to down-vote questions, then they are active in the field of moderation. But if they never down-vote answers, it might indicate people are reluctant to lose rep.
Clearly, the stats wouldn't prove any causality. But it would be interesting to see the numbers.

@Stijn well, the thing is that when having a form in a template, form validation is borked. $scope.formName.$valid always returns "true" even when required fields are empty.
The funny thing is, the browser still throw the "this field is required" messages.

@Unihedron what is your idea?
 
@Duncan In general, sure -- if you can make a good case for it. The community team runs queries all the time. What I miss from your question in particular is the "what would we do with the knowledge". If the question were of the form "I think we have a problem X, I suggest solution Y. Maybe someone with access could check whether the problem really exit?", I think it'd be more well-received than it's current "I'm curious about X, could someone find out please?" form

@hichris123 I might have found a reason why it didn't catch that phone number (if it was not a glitch). We should check the phone number only, not the rest of the title. (Sometimes it works for the full title, but sometimes it does not)

@ProgramFOX thanks! wonder if Martijn is a hidden robo reviewer? :(
 
11:24 AM
@balpha Thanks for the feedback. I was reluctant to put too much info into the question, since I was fearful of that question becoming the question and garnering all sorts of debate over what I was proposing.
But perhaps I didn't provide enough, even for that purpose.
 
@ShadowWizard Perhaps a misclick. That has happened to me too once.
 
@balpha What would be the correct way to ask this from the community team? Should I update my question with more details and a query or am I best to email about this kind of thing?
 
Huh? Look at the dates, 2013 question answered this month and accepted... stackoverflow.com/q/15839015/4070640
 
@ProgramFOX I hope so... too bad he's not into chat :(
 
11:30 AM
@InfiniteRecursion NOOOO nuked
 
@Duncan Definitely keep this public, there's no reason to put this into an email. And the query itself isn't the interesting part, it's the details on what you're trying to learn/confirm and what the implications of it being confirmed (or not) would be. It shouldn't be about running a query, it should be about a potential problem that you anecdotally obeserved and what should be done about it. If the data doesn't confirm the problem, all the better.
 
while I was halfway reading it... :,(
 
yes, my flag was marked helpful and the comments were nuked
Android is a messy tag, many posts get 10+ comments under it like hi, hello, how are you :(
 
@balpha has the Too Many Requests block become more strict recently? I've hit it in the past when opening 10-15 tabs at once (e.g. while browsing a user's profile) but recently I get it when opening a couple of tabs at once mixed with regular SO browsing.
 
11:35 AM
Oh hi FOX :)
 
... I can't, it's... machine code
 
@Stijn not that I know of, but is it possible you have disabled caching in your browser? I'm seing tons of repeated requests for the same static files (images, JS, etc.) in the logs for you
 
haha...I know ;) flagging for purging
 
11:38 AM
and on meta, those count towards the ratelimiting (since meta serves static files itself, not from the CDN)
 
@balpha perhaps accidentally, I'll take a look.
there are 3 other devs here in the office but they don't use SO often so it's probably my machine.
 
xD
 
@balpha yep, that was it, Firebug had "disable browser caching" set. Thanks :)

that also explains why the SE button dropdown sometimes took +500ms to be ready.
