@tchrist you did find this MSO post touching that topic?
> Me encantan los unicornios que pasan el rato detrás de la cocina, pero suelen comerse muchas de las margaritas. ¿Qué puedo hacer al respecto?
@rene Thanks, I had not. There is some discussion on meta.es.so though.
Yeah, I can't check that. I don't speak Spanish.
I want to make a drunken unicorn joke, but I keep getting interference with Please Don't Eat the Daisies. :)
@rene Oh ok. Are you francophone?
(Not that that would be a free pass to Spanish, of course!)
Nope, I understand English and German beyond my native language
I had to promise my French teacher to drop French as he felt I would never learn it...
I kept my promise
Ah ok, that makes sense then. There is some silly English stereotype I've stupidly fallen into where every person name Rene "must" speak French, just like how every person named Juan "must" speak Spanish. :)
1:06 PM
And a person named Frodo, @tchrist?

@UNICYCLEZRDEBESTINDEHERE Watching this endless list of new questions never gets boring
Shog? Can you tell us a story please?
Sing us a song, you’re the piano man,
Piano Man’s superpower is to speak softly and carry a big stick.

Lol wat?
Shog! I asked for a story, not a song!
Triage is empty... Interesting...
1:29 PM
@UNICYCLEZRDEBESTINDEHERE Shog is busy with the "Royal decree of Chat Nice-nes"
Another audit
Wasn't mean to be a joke, the staff is really reworking the whole "Be nice" and chat tolerance problem.
How about the comment on that question?
1:52 PM
Hi @MadaraUchiha
Is this a hi? ^
@rene flagged as too chatty.
@ShadowWizard LOL, if I flagged it would I still have passed the audit?
2:00 PM
Just flagged as obsolete now it's been accepted anyway and must have been the last flag needed
@UNICYCLEZRDEBESTINDEHERE don't think so, it's not part of the audit
@PeterJ yup, ~3 flags are required to insta-nuke a comment
@ShadowWizard that is an option... I was more mentioning it as an example of a user not being pre-occupied with their own internet points
Remember flag gangs deleting mod comments?
2:01 PM
Were those gangs evil?

@rene oh. To me it just looked on the verge of rude. Asking people to vote is wrong, even if not your own post
> The technique of nesting fragment caches to maximize cache hits is known as russian doll caching.
@ShadowWizard OK, I'll keep that in mind
Makes perfect sense to me. ^^
Somehow I can't find the vote gang thing
Tries MSE
@UNICYCLEZRDEBESTINDEHERE maybe because the mods revenged and deleted everything?
2:05 PM
Nah I don't think so
But it's an option
That troll from the doll caching is member for 2 years, 9 months. Amazing.

@NormalHuman can you recycle Smokey so it picks up the merge?

@rene ouch, that sounds cruel. To recycle someone.
yep, it is cruel
there is no love in IT
Poor Smoky. Hope he won't retaliate.
did you just said cycle?

Q: Is killing fish with iced water really humane?

OddDeerSomeone told me that one can kill a fish by putting it in iced water. He stated that it'll kill the animal extremely fast and without any pain. I've my doubts... Can anyone explain why this should work? Or is it nonsense?

3:54 PM
CSS transforms are teh best
The interface of goo.gl pages is at least 2 generations behind most Google sites.
That navigation bar was replaced by black bar, which was replaced by a launcher thing.
in a regex, what's the difference between [a-z]{6,} and [a-z]{6} ?
what does that comma mean
Comma means: 6 or more.
{6,11} = at least 6 and at most 11.
{6,} = at least 6
4:03 PM
@PraxisAshelin no upper bound
{,6} would mean no lower bound
alright makes sense, ty
{6} means exactly 6
@Braiam No, that's not interpreted that way. You'd need {0,6}.
@NormalHuman mm? really?
@Braiam Try regex101.com
4:07 PM
you are right, but I kind of expected it was like that....
Regex: expect the unexpected
I think there was a reason once, but it was lost... If Triage does not hide the Unsalvageable from tag views, it does not serve the original purpose.
It still does something, being a version of "First Posts" with fewer questions but multiple reviewers.
But that doesn't explain having both.
4:19 PM
supposedly, FP should die after we figure out triage
In that case it might outlive us.
4:38 PM
It doesn't really do much given that Unsalvageable doesn't actually hide questions. Hopefully when it is more developed a concrete purpose will be easy to communicate to reviewers. — bjb568 13 secs ago
I use Normal chatroom as a kind of Triage for math (which doesn't have one): a stream of questions selected on (pretty simple) criteria, reviewed by me.
No robo-reviewers, and I always reach consensus.
Autocracy is best democracy!

Smokey died... again...
So manual reports still work, but not commands?
Weird. Also, blacklisting a 21k user?

Blender site design by Courtny on meta.blender.stackexchange.com
Since when is Courtny doing site designs?
Something's odd here. You never posted site designs until now. And the post uses "we" pronoun without disclosing who it refers to. Is this a design by committee, or by someone whose identity must be concealed? — Normal Human 19 secs ago
8:40 PM
@NormalHuman "new" :) She's been a mod on Pets before. :)
@NormalHuman Better to meet you here, our design team is currently trying to tackle the big backlog of community site designs and I've been pressed into service to assist!
We also hired a new designer, Pawel who is helping to blitz that backlog as well.
@Courtny Condolences on your demotion. :p But great job on Blender.
@NormalHuman Haha, it's actually a very welcome change of pace from all Careers, all the time
Anywho, you'll probably not see a ton of sites by me...but now you know!
I appreciate the explanation!
It's odd to see an employee in here without blue. :P
8:47 PM
Hm, there is no easy way to find the number of custom-design sites...
I wonder how it compares to 150.
Oh, I guess there is a way: count custom icons on the site list.
I counted 62, including Patents and lang-SO sites (since they look like SO by design). That's a lot.
Could be 63 if Stack Apps are included, or 61 if Meta.SE is excluded. Edge cases.
9:06 PM
Speaking of design... only two sites still have the old profile page: Physics and Area 51 Discussion Zone.
@SmokeDetector fp-
I think Area 51 should be next. Physics should suffer for its sins.
As in... having a homework tag?
That, and trying to design by committee: this leading to that.
I think this is the only site design post with [status-declined]

@NormalHuman To be fair, ES has a homework tag. I'm not in love with it, but...
