Ewe! Who let the cat out of the bag?
@hichris123 smokey doesn't know
and apparently not only programmers have problems naming stuff...
I've found testing real md is helpful for my lil MD-HTML
eg this ->
Obviously that <mark> styling is too obnoxious.
Q: to be, or not to be?

Don LarynxLearning is a present form and "to be" a future form. But "being" is a present form. Which is correct in the following sentence? I am learning ___ alpha. Where ___ is 1) to be or 2) being

somebody deal with it
how is it hot ugh
@bjb568 Characterize deal.
I might explain, or maybe even elaborate tho.
I could clarify also.
@bjb568 ♬ “Sunday, sweet Sunday, with nothing to do. . . .”
deal = edit or nuke
12:23 AM
@bjb568 I would be happy to approve your edit suggestion.
I see what you did there...
@tchrist ell.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/20762 probably didn't do it right, but here
@bjb568 Ite missa est.
12:29 AM
@bjb568 Latin
missa == sent
est == [he,she,it] is
It is sent
You had 2/3 of the words :P
I think it's missing some macrons, Google Translate flatly refuses to touch it
@hichris123 mmm maybe, I couldn't track down the root cause. There was a JS leak of some sort but it seemed rather minor so I suspect the real problem was in the animated canvas.
> Constituent
I should have it.
The system is lying.
12:33 AM
Sounds like either (1) you're lying, or (2) you've been shortchanged a badge
Or (3) you forgot you didn't vote last election
I most certainly did.
My votes were on stackoverflow.com/election/5 a couple days after the election. They're gone.
@bjb568 Just think: only 449 edits to go before self-approval.
1k rep edit limit
Think harder.
It’s in superannuated beta.
pokes @annalear
12:49 AM
I have intel that the gif'ing stopped.
Now you've poked the calculus kitten
Duck and cover
Duck? @inf? :p
I'm here to start the @MartijnPieters for SO mod campaign :D
hey you were supposed to star my message. :P
Negative, coz he downvoted me. I forget but I don't forgive :p
@ɥʇǝS I can get behind that :P
12:53 AM
Maybe I should make it more clear? (Why'd you delete yours? I didn't really care..)
-1 his time is better spent not digging through silly flags.
We're terrible at this campaigning thing
too late. I edited the wrong message.
@Undo IKR >.<
Star it, come on!
@ɥʇǝS yes! stars
"5 minutes in to the campaign, and it has already collapsed into several factions, all supporting starring different messages using different protocols"
meh nobody like kittehz :(
Wait, what? Has the 5-minute edit grace period been removed?
I believe so.. At least I've seen other people mention it.
@Doorknob Sort of. If someone comments, the grace period ends.
12:56 AM
It's been scaled back
it's less graceful
Ahhhh since when has this been a thing? Is it only on SO?
@Undo ha, ha :P
@Undo "The cats' rights faction, led by @bjb, did not last very long."

When was this deleted @Doorknob? stackoverflow.com/questions/21315280/…
@ɥʇǝS Jan 24
@Shog9 Was that you?
> deleted by Community♦ Jan 24 at 3:36
12:59 AM
still top search result in one of my searches.
That's bing for you I guess.
@JasonC shog
why is everyone faster than me >_<
@JasonC You've been shogged ;)
I didn't even look at the history.
It's strangely hypnotic.
1:00 AM
That gif is so shog.

Close Vote Request for http://stackoverflow.com/q/29464024/1223693 by Doorknob from Tavern on the Meta Reason: ugh
Some lady with six kids drove me into the wall when I was walking down the sidewalk and told me to watch where I was going. "If you don't like how crowded the city is, why the hell'd you have six kids?" was not the appropriate response. Oops.
1:04 AM
How... how did she drive you into a wall?
Sounds like assault
A wall...
I was walking on the building side and she was walking on the street side, and I moved over but they continued spreading out.
@Doorknob Errr what? :P
She was just waddling along, oblivious, I did that back against the wall, hands up, make yourself skinny thing.
@Undo I was just picturing some random person ramming into me and then suddenly falling into a deep water-filled hole. :P
1:06 AM
Erm, me falling into the hole, that is. Although the other way of parsing that sentence is interesting as well.
My "haha" was actually directed at both options simultaneously.
I like them falling into a hole better
"Well this got dirty fast."
1:09 AM
I kind of want to nominate myself for moderator just to laugh at my fail.
@Doorknob Thank you.
And to see Shog post a "-1" comment on the nomination.
@bjb568 should be a mod, but I don't know if he can handle moderating SO, maintaining Stack Exchange's greatest competitor, and being the top English student in the country.
The… top?
I may halve my chatting here.
You know, I would genuinely support @bjb's mod nomination if he actually used more jQuery.
1:16 AM
@bjb568 Careful you don’t halve the bottom half by accident.
@JasonC $("#bjb568").addClass("♦");
@tchrist Er ... that's what she said?
@JasonC No, that would be the back half.

"Well this got dirty fast."
1:22 AM
A person comprises six halves: top, bottom, front, back, left, right.
Therefore, every person is actually three people
Tavern Math!
Don't forget the inner and outer half.
Id, ego, and super-ego are the three parts of the psychic apparatus defined in Sigmund Freud's structural model of the psyche; they are the three theoretical constructs in terms of whose activity and interaction our mental life is described. According to this model of the psyche, the id is the set of uncoordinated instinctual trends; the super-ego plays the critical and moralising role; and the ego is the organized, realistic part that mediates between the desires of the id and the super-ego. The super-ego can stop one from doing certain things that one's id may want to do. Although the model is...
and the concave and convex half?
To halve and halve not.
1:23 AM
Well, by "inner" and "outer" half, I mean the chewy and crunchy half.
All unhalved humans are topologically equivalent to doughnuts.
> I have no idea what he meant by "AH"; perhaps he was sighing or had a sudden moment of insight or fell asleep on his keyboard mid-comment? —shog
I have no idea why but this is one of the funniest things I've read all day :D
@AstroCB There are feeds, yanno.
@tchrist That claim is a peeve of mine. People are at least genus 6 surfaces.
1:30 AM
@Doorknob that's definitely a$$h0l3
@Roombatron5000 not if you are reading asian literature...
@hichris123 What?
they mastered the art of sighing
seems like the tavern likes @bjb more than @anim , since @bjb's pin got more stars than @anims
1:35 AM
@Roombatron5000 Au contraire: there are simply more people enthusiastic about kicking the cat than who want to kick the animal.
@bjb568 I don't think the fact that people want to be able to kick you is a good thing...
@Doorknob what? nohhhhh…
Note to self: if I ever were to stand for a mod election, find someone with a longer attention span than @ɥʇǝS.
1:40 AM
@MartijnPieters How about m- oh look a shiny thing!
Speech! A speech!
Can't have a campaign without a speech
So who'll be my speech writer then?
1:42 AM
I haven't even got a campaign manager yet.
We can make a github repo for the speech
You do realize you don't need a campaign, SO would elect you like that if they had a chance
What if the first bite doesn’t take?
@AstroCB O_O
But :D doesn't mean "I'm confused".
1:45 AM
At any rate, I'll need more sleep than I am going to get poking my nose into random mentions. Night night, you 'orrible lot!
@pizza Apparently it does for @bjb.

Of life at once untie: poor venomous fool
Be angry, and dispatch.

Why do suggested edit reviews on Meta.SE take so long?
@AstroCB b.c i skip em
1:47 AM
nobody reviews
To think of all the time that was spent thinking and arguing over what comments are not constructive vs too chatty...
Went through 'em
@Undo Much appreciated.
So did I
apparently @Astro is rep-farming for xkcdBot :P
1:52 AM
There was one today suggesting an edit to a Shog post.
Looked like a trap to me. :)
the trap is making it looks like a trap, so you don't see the other trap next ahead
@AstroCB xkcd bot -> RSS feed for XKCD
@AstroCB Because you keep making more!
@Doorknob Just a bit.

@xkcdBot find Random Number
1:59 AM
This is a test.
This is not a test.
no is not
I'm currently experiencing my daily episode of: "Where's that cord?"
This may or may not be a test.
I suck at this... :/
takes me 8 full seconds to write "I suck at this... :/"????
blames lagging
2:02 AM
Yes, quite interesting...
Affirmative, rather intriguing...
@MartijnPieters :(
Well I'll be happy with whoever you pick as long as you run :P
2:04 AM
@Braiam wrong?
I probably should have just asked from write access from @Inf.
@AstroCB not going to work
@Braiam I could describe xkcdBot as a bot whose sole purpose is to kick bjb.
@AstroCB Room owners can't override the chat rep requirements
2:09 AM
vs 13 on Mathematics, not bad.
@AstroCB but that's a false advertisement!
@AndrewT. the best kind of advertisement, right?
2:14 AM
@Undo Yay for the 2015 Stack Overflow Moderator Election! Nominations start in 0 days, 17 hours, 45 minutes and 48 seconds.
@Doorknob licks ice cream cone
@pizza I like adding the CreationDate.
!!/lick me
@bjb568 licks ice cream cone
just as good!
@tchrist Will do.
@bjb confirmed ice cream cone
2:15 AM
@pizza Already did. :)
@bjb568 No kiddielicking in this chat.
Yes, but you created 3 different versions of the query. >:/ Much clutter
Was just playin.
SEDE really needs some garbage collector. It's probably on some to-do list.
The Math vs SO stats says a great deal, don’t you think?
Math is disproportionately high.
Yeah, percentage wise Math is way ahead.
2:19 AM
Why are you looking for the Yearling badge instead of comparing for creation dates older than a year ago?
English has only two, and one of them is network-wide.
Yes, I know.
I knew of both those users. In one case, I know why.
@pizza @TimStone probably has it on his todo list.
@tchrist Because I want to differentiate between 1 rep users and suspended users.
Makes sense.
2:20 AM
@SmokeDetector fp
@pizza Registered question as false positive and added title to Bayesian doctype 'good'.
Smokey’s blown his stack.
2:30 AM
I VTC a question as a dupe, and the OP used their new binding dupe vote. :D
silently encourages 2k+ users on Meta.SE to review edits
@tchrist It got rejected, but I thought it was reasonable, so I re-suggested (one of the rejectors rejected all of mine as too minor – probably didn't like the "Bot" part) and Shog Reject-and-Edited.
Sometimes I see the link "rejoin favorite rooms" in the sidebar, sometimes not. Is this behavior documented?
2:39 AM
Probably not. Was looking for a similar thing, saw the questions, then shared his search result.
tl;dr agf
But the questions should be closed and deleted.
@pizza let's do it.
Well, I closeflagged which doesn't help much. Downvoted one of them, too.
More poking power needed.
stackoverflow.com/questions/4024271/… opinion-based; doesn't really need to go away, but doesn't need more answers either
2:56 AM
is still waiting for bot edits to be approved
Gamification is approaching 100% commitment
@pizza I never would have though that would receive so much support. I wonder if people can keep thinking of enough new questions continuously to keep it alive.
My guess is no: it will fizzle out in private beta. But I thought the same about Woodworking too, and was proved wrong.
Plenty of things to throw close votes at: stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/coding-style - Lots of mis-tags, too.
3:05 AM
I can hide visited links completely (for a reason), but I suppose there is no reasonable way to remove them from DOM completely...
JS can't tell what's visited and what's not. :/
And this mind boggling combo of ... there's got to be some gems in there.
[ SmokeDetector ] Repeating characters in answer: Password protect a multiplayer game? by Dddk on gaming.stackexchange.com
@AstroCB Why don’t you please explain why you are having a bot edit things?
3:17 AM
@tchrist It needs 20 rep for chat participation.
@AstroCB Oh ok. Done.
@tchrist Thanks.
@SmokeDetector ignore
@pizza Post ignored; alerts about it will no longer be posted.
@tchrist This is the last one.
That'll do it.
3:19 AM
Shoot, hit the wrong button. Simple approve instead of approve and edit.
It saves on reviewers. :)
Would be far easier to answer a support question, probably...
Does a girl keep an air of mystery about her, or about herself?
About herself.
@tchrist Yes.
So, the profile text is wrong. And The site should not make speculative statements about its users anyway.
3:23 AM
s/air of mystery about them\K(?=\.)/self/
@ɥʇǝS Done :)
Q: Readability (All Languages)

Frank PalmisanoThe common habit I see most developers use when crafting new code is how I place the brackets in the following C function: int Fibonacci(int n){ <- instead of the bracket here.. //code... } However, when crafting large program that require heavy use of brackets, wouldn't it be easier to r...

“Fix” the brace and the performance goes Vroom vroom vroom!
“Save much time”
“Save much time”
Weird: double post.
I am alive.
3:35 AM
Also, I’m pretty sure that s/\{\n/\n{/ does not change the amount of white space.
It doesn’t even change the number of characters.
@xkcdBot What are your superpowers?
Expanding https oneboxen.
@pizza I am still in development, but I project that I will be able to search xkcd posts and display relevant oneboxed cartoons at your command.
@xkcdBot kicked. welcoming our newest bot to make this room lives up its name.
Hmm. I imagine you'd be posting xkcd on your own, when the content of someone's message has enough overlap with the comic description.
3:40 AM
@AndrewT. I find this suggestion mildly irritating.
@pizza This is a possibility. Added to feature list.
No daily xkcd feed? (not that I endorse, but just want to open a discussion)
@InfiniteRecursion yay thanks!
huh, looks like my Tavern tab got closed for some reason..
@AndrewT. Added to feature list.
@xkcdBot no alt text?
@JanDvorak xkcd.com/1085
3:52 AM
@xkcdBot no http?
is wondering how xkcd oneboxing works
@xkcdBot xkcd.com/1085 (don't use https)
@xkcdBot server-side, using xkcd API.
(If it can be called API; it looks just like a link to a .json file. xkcd.com/about)
has gained a sense of self
Will bother to get homework done. At last minute.
I seem to have conquerered the star wall for the first time. I am pleased, but this shall not be the last.
