Is he somekind of spam
 
I'm not sure. It could be cleverly disguised. If he is spamming, he's using a fake name that isn't associated with tokbox, so there's no easy way to verify. Personally, I suspect he's just misguided. In any case those questions won't last long, and neither will his account if he keeps it up.

Q: Reputation flaw for new users

Matthew0898I noticed a flaw that applies only to new users or users with few to no upvotes, and low reputation.

I offer 100 rep bounty, unaccept and accept answers again. I am again at 101 reps. Yoyo. Actually, aim of this post...

Re: meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/288440/… I guess my concerns were more like curiosities because I don't really observe any serious problems at the moment. Some observations include what seems to be a steady increase in the flag count on SO, that the issue was raised by another mod in how to
handle the VLQ flag at the moment, and also that the VLQ flag seemed to work as intended previously? I know you mention this in your diagram post, but for the most part it seemed to have an understood functionality, but now that functionality seems to have been slightly redefined.
The refinement seems to either indicate that the name VLQ to enter triage could perhaps be renamed, or that the VLQ flag could retain its original functionality and a new flag for triage could be created (this could also possibly help disambiguate the amount of triage flags in the recursive diagram versus entry into the diagram)
@Shog9 ^
 
8:02 PM
Perhaps the triage queue entry should be decoupled from YOUR FACE, @TravisJ (um, why? I don't really have a response here, because I don't know what your concerns are. chat?) — Shog9 ♦ 5 mins ago

lol
 
:)
 
@TravisJ so... first off, the VLQ flag didn't really work all that well for questions.
They're relatively rare, and we never really got the Low Quality queue working properly for them.

Q: Why does this question show up in the Frequently Asked Questions list if it isn't tagged [faq]?

Alexis KingCurrently, the Frequently Asked Questions list on the Meta homepage looks like this: But the very first question on that list isn't tagged with faq at all! Is this a bug, or can questions without the special tag appear in that list?

 
@Shog9 - From what I remember, they were intended for posts which would require deletion by a mod and were beyond even closure.
I do remember a decent amount of confusion on meta from the differentiation between those aspects though.
How many VLQ flags were being cast on average before the triage queue / improvement queues were implemented versus now?
 
@TravisJ Regardless of the intended use, they mostly served as a vote-intensifier: flagged questions stayed in LQ review until they got (some number of) Looks OK reviews or were closed, so the actual effect was that flagged posts got double the exposure (LQ review and Close review) while a bunch of LQ reviewers burned their precious reviews on mostly-worthless Recommend Close flags.
So we had two choices: make LQ review work for questions, or use another queue that was already designed to work for questions.
We'll face that choice again, eventually... But until then, let's see how well this works for SO.
 
8:09 PM
I probably should have waited 6-8 weeks to make that comment :P So perhaps I will wait until then. I just worry by that point the review indicator will be in the ten thousands. Is that a caching issue, or is it actually increasing at a semi-alarming rate? I still remember the 6 figure close vote review queue

> I would like to keep track of a .... of nonces.
 
What does he mean? Nonce seems slang
 
Nonce is a thing, but the ... is confusing.
In security engineering, a nonce is an arbitrary number used only once in a cryptographic communication. It is similar in spirit to a nonce word, hence the name. It is often a random or pseudo-random number issued in an authentication protocol to ensure that old communications cannot be reused in replay attacks. For instance, nonces are used in HTTP digest access authentication to calculate an MD5 digest of the password. The nonces are different each time the 401 authentication challenge response code is presented, thus making replay attacks virtually impossible. An example is in ordering products...
 
It is used in oauth
 
8:12 PM
@PatrickHofman Nonce is not slang but I think he substituted "...." for "collection" or something.
 
Either way it isn't reasonably answerable. It would likely vary greatly by situation and current framework.
 
I'd cv as too broad or off-topic.
(If I had any votes left.)
 
Mine is the too broad one
 
Ok. Thanks guys. Google doesn't always have a first hit that is useful.
 
@Shog9 Is it considered poor form to use the mod tools list of questions with high numbers of close votes and just go down the list and close them all? Obviously paying enough attention to make sure it's valid, but with 4 votes, it almost always is.
 
8:16 PM
That's the purpose of the CVQ
 
@AlexisKing if you actually think about it and dispute the closure if you disagree, sure. Just don't neglect the other lists on that page...
 
@JanDvorak I mean after I've done the CVQ.
 
@Shog9 - So, just to clarify, all triage queue entries are to go through me now (Fully FACE COUPLED)?
 
yeah, get on that
 
when I'm done with the CVQ (rarely) I don't really have the motivation or the votes to do anything else
 
8:20 PM
@JanDvorak - I feel like if I max out in one aspect of the site it dominates my time. So if I only rep cap, or only deal with flags, or only edit, or only participate in meta, or only chat, then I don't get to do anything else. Finding a balance is definitely important.
 
this was supposed to be the point of things like rep and voting caps
and review limits
We made some of those caps too high
 
Since I hit 10k on SO, I've stopped answering questions on SO except in my niche tags.
Doesn't get much rep, but all the other tags are too awful to wade through.

But that is only for MSE at the moment
 
Don't quote me on this but I don't think there is an easy way to check progress. On the new profile page (like the one on MSE) you can track it, but it hasn't come to all sites yet.

Yes, but most understandings of evil things are probably misunderstood as being understanding; understandably, of course.

Of course you do not know what you just said, if you did then you would be understood and therefore not evil.
 
Please don't misunderstand, but I believe that if a reader can't understand, then they will never understand (not that I blame them, as I can understand why). Understanding, you see, is the root of all misunderstanding.
NOBODY UNDERSTANDS!
 
While trying to understand I unfortunately googled nobody understands. Now I think I understand why nobody understands but not necessarily what was supposed to be understood in the first place, as we seem to be talking about a misunderstanding.

On the subject of VLQQ (VLQ on questions) my concern was: the HIQ->Triage arrow relies on reviewers casting that flag. But then they will get it declined by a mod (one hour is unlikely to be enough for the question to pass Triage and collect 5 votes in the Close queue). So there will be some unhappy people doing what they were supposed to do in HIQ and getting declined flags as a result. Not to mention pointless flags for a mod to handle.

Is it worth a mse post? As in, "is it an abuse of the system if..."?
 
I think it would be a duplicate, somewhere is Shogs guiding answer , but I also think there are just too many possible limiting cases for a clear answer
 
I'd like to focus on that limiting case of someone copy/pasting a part of the help section into the answer box
 
@JanDvorak just OT IMHO
@JanDvorak Any Mod is human and might have a different point of view too?
 
Flag handling shouldn't be a case of personal opinion
 
hah

@AlexisKing Registered question as false positive and added title to Bayesian doctype 'good'.
 
@JanDvorak difficult with soft cases and humans as flaggers/mods :)

How about we use meta to put mod actions into public shame so that said mods get shogified?
 
SE: brainwashing people into becoming Shog since circa 2008.
 
Yes, please!

Nooooooo!
I don't want to be a shog
 
I can' complain in general, Mod's are a good guide in general, sometime I would not agree and like to respond to a decline, but these are rare cases ....
even if the new spam flag with comment will come it'll get better I think
 
unless mods start treating no comment = no need to look further
inb4 canned comments for spam flags FR
 
@JanDvorak Just so you know, MSE is moderated by employees. (Mostly CMs. I've handled the most flags so far this year.)
 
@JanDvorak the things, I abuse Other as spam flags for, canned comments would not be useful, the are showing external resources or posts on other Sites
