Lol, dammit, I really need to start watching what I say now.
 
Why @astro no has outspoken?
 
Fix XSS vulnerability - always a good commit message
 
@bjb568 What?
Oh – the badge?
 
yah
 
I don't participate in SO chat.
 
3:02 AM
^^ same
 
Is that considered a participation badge for mod?
 
@hichris123 You can thank @JeremyBanks for that. :)
And the subsequent "Tim you dumbass pay attention to what you're writing" commit.

@AstroCB yes
 
That's ridiculous.
 
@JasonC I suspect that English competence may be part of the problem here. :(
 
3:04 AM
@AstroCB "Noteworthy Badges" in mod candidate pages

@TimStone Well, you were very fast. :P
 
@tchrist Mine or the OP's?
 
@JasonC La suya, no la tuya.
 
Well, time to get some stars in the mod chat...

@AndrewT. These are the ones used to calculate candidate score:
 
yay osx
 
yoyo sex?

BTW, those don't update
 
@AstroCB Yes, which means there are some inconsistencies in the system :/
 
3:06 AM
@tchrist I… am not aroused.

@bjb568 I am. Now I'm not. Now I am. Now I'm not.

@bjb568 and I think we can all agree that that is a good thing
 
There are too many good candidates this election. =(
Stop being good at this, candidates!
 
Like me?
 
Yes.
 
3:07 AM
@minitech Indeed. :(
 
@bjb568 This is why we have spaces.
 
in Stack Overflow 2015 Moderator Election Chat on Stack Overflow Chat, 56 mins ago, by Doorknob
Oooh, a wild @slugster nominated. This is getting more and more interesting. So many good candidates, so little openings!
 
Let's just give diamonds to the entire tavern and call it a day.

user259867
Make more openings by firing the existing mods.
 
3:08 AM
Let's fire that @minitech guy. I hear he's a slacker. :P
 
It’s funny, because I was considering that
 
Considering what?
 
Leaving to make a fourth space
 
nooooooo :(
 
3:09 AM
My fourth pick could probably get more done than I do.
 
Aw, why? Are you getting burnt out?
 
But let’s just turn this into motivation to pick up the pace on flags \o/
 
I like you.
 
Oh man, that would annoy the people I work with to no end, if I got mod status for doing pretty much nothing.
 
@JasonC Nah! I’m just graduating this year, so, scholarship letters to be written, exam preparation, etc. etc.
It is a big time sap and will continue to be for the next three months.
 
3:10 AM
Oh. Insanity awaits you. But only temporarily. Maybe.
 
Graduating from what level?
 
s/Insanity/regular expressions/ (how meta)
@bjb568 Just high school =P
 
Oh ok.
Lots of us here are in high school.
/middle school
 
@TimStone I don't know what you did to the "Meta participation" tab, but the stats are wrong for all of the candidates.
 
@bjb568 Yeah, it’s funny how that happened
 
3:12 AM
@AstroCB How wrong?
 
And some of us are way past high school, but apparently still have the vocabulary of the average 5th grader. ... :(
 
@TimStone very wrong
:P
 
@TimStone The numbers are just...wrong.
 
@JasonC There’s a test for that. :) testyourvocab.com
 
@TimStone very very wrong
 
3:13 AM
Hmm hmm hmm.
 
user259867
Congrats to @HoboSapiens who is now #5 in downvotes on SO, overtaking Peter Mortensen.
 
@tchrist Yeah I know, I took it. :P
 
They look correct to me?
The meta profile link links to the main site though, that's wrong.
 
Man, I remember applying for colleges. I told my parents I submitted like 15 applications, but really I only applied to the two hardest schools I wanted to go to, and somehow got accepted to one of them.
That could have turned out awkward.
 
That one's for me, but they're all wrong on my end.
 
3:16 AM
@AstroCB You're comparing your Meta numbers against your SO profile
You have 143 answers and 19 questions on MSO
 
@TimStone Oh.
 
I'll figure out why that link is wrong though, sec
 
Then you're right about the link.
 
@JasonC lol
I skipped that process by dropping out of my senior year of high school and getting a job. ;D
 
I suppose that’s less expensive!
 
3:18 AM
@minitech Quite the inverse, actually.
 
Haha. Yeah... I only lasted two years in college. I ended up with an internship freshman year that turned into my dream job.
 
@AlexisKing Oh, the whole “basic human needs” thing?
 
@minitech hmm?
 
I might do that with DD.

Of course no ads, so GIVE ME TEH MONEHZ!
 
@AlexisKing Food, lodging, etc.
 
Anonymous
3:19 AM
School is hard.
 
@minitech Oh, I just meant that getting a job was the opposite of expensive. :p
 
I actually somewhat regret not graduating though, although I'm not sure why.
 
@JeremyBanks agree
 
(Now, admittedly, this dropping-out business might not have been by choice... mumbles something about depression and a suicide attempt)
 
@AlexisKing Oh. I was saying that getting a job was less expensive.
 
3:20 AM
@JasonC meh, how much calc did you do?
 
*whistles*
 
I dropped out after one year and now I work at Stack Exchange.

Stay in school because it'll make it a lot easier to get a visa if you ever want to work abroad.
 
@animuson doin' it right
 
@animuson yay you!
 
3:20 AM
@AlexisKing Congratulations on recovering
 
@bjb568 In real life? A decent amount actually, but I was more heavy on the linear algebra.
 
Ah, ok. No PhD, but nobody likes a douche phd anyway.
 
@minitech Thanks! I'm still not exactly 100%, but I'm better. :)
I took two years of calc in high school, anyway.
 
@AstroCB Link should be fixed, sorry.
 
Only 2?
 
3:22 AM
@bjb568 Haha, part of my first job entailed helping said douches get their PhDs, then taking the IP. I'm sure they thought it was a good deal at the time. evil cackle
 
@bjb568 I wasn't aware many people took more than two years of calculus in high school. o.O
 
I'll take 3! Or maybe more if I do some over the summer.
 
Anonymous
I got the job I wanted after dropping out, but getting the visa so I could actually start the job took annoying amounts of time and money.
 
@bjb568 Pre-calculus doesn't, doesn't count.
 
I took half a year of calculus!
 
3:23 AM
@TimStone No problem; thanks.
 
There’s only one course at my school
 
@AlexisKing I KNOW
 
@minitech You win! You didn't waste your time. ;)
 
@JeremyBanks Shouldn’t you get her permission first?
 
@bjb568 I'm honestly curious what those three years are, then.
 
3:23 AM
@AlexisKing It wasn’t a waste of time! It was a lot of fun.
 
@tchrist Ba dum, bum.
 
It helped prepare me for the math competition I can’t go to.
 
@minitech I'm kidding, I loved calculus.
 
Anonymous
@tchrist o.O
 
@AlexisKing BC exam this year, multivariable next year, then probably stats, then something else as dual enrollment
 
3:24 AM
Pistols at dawn?
 
@bjb568 That's neat. I only took single-variable because I took statistics.
 
user259867
@bjb568 stats isn't calculus.

3:25 AM
I don't know how high schools manage to stretch a semester's material into a year; with more class time per week, too.
 
@bjb568 I would've taken a third year, but... y'know, I didn't take my senior year of HS. :/
@pizza Very dully. :(
 
Ah.
 
@bjb568 Which courses?
 
LOOK UP
 
I get the feeling that my calculus is… less… than everyone else’s
We didn’t do multivariable anything
 
3:26 AM
@bjb568 Oh – didn't get that far.
 
user259867
Addition to mod questionnaire: how much calculus have you learned?

^^
 
@pizza It's very important for moderation.
 
post it!
 
3:28 AM
@pizza Learned? Or retained?
 
So what sort of other fun things is everyone working on this instant
 
homework
 
@minitech I'm about to give you guys tons of comment flags from data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/297140/…. Also, writing documentation for a project I just finished.
 
Anonymous
@minitech Lately, several of us have been ███████████████████████████ -- what a riot!
 
yeah, that
 
3:29 AM
@JasonC “fun things” “writing documentation”
 
@minitech It's true. My life has reached the point where documentation is the fun part.
 
Sounds like a great life.
I want to be Jason C when I grow up!
 
Well, it's better than waiting around in an airport for delayed flights, which was my weekend.
 
ay, the weather, yeah, that

3:31 AM
Nope. Not weather. The runway construction at JFK, causing average delays of 5-6 hours at departure airports all around the country.
Way more annoying than weather.
 
@bjb568 Is this built in Node?
 
Yes!
 
@bjb568 Without Express?
 
@JasonC they couldn't plan that out? O_o
@minitech Yes!
 
@bjb568 Good. Express has terrible query string parsing >=(
 
3:32 AM
:D
 
@bjb568 You clearly have never been to JFK.
 
There's simple enough querystring modules.
 
(Throwing user input into arbitrary structures is my idea of fun!)
 
@JasonC I've heard about it.
@minitech s/input/
 
Everybody watch out, @minitech is encouraging @bjb's vanilla js rampage.
 
3:33 AM
aww, used all my stars today already
 
@AlexisKing What?? What about my vanilla JS rampage
 
@minitech Quiet, you, you're being a bad influence on this young kitty. >:|

@minitech You had me until "and".
 
Which reminds me... I have some photoshopping to do.

… and user-agent sniffing. I am suddenly disappointed, @bjb568 =(
 
Mar 30 at 3:57, by Alexis King
@bjb568 Are you manually using string concatenation to generate your webpages? o.O
 
@minitech That's just an insult message for IE users.
 
3:36 AM
I mean, what is this
if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Mobile') == -1) mainContentEl.style.minHeight = Math.max(0, innerHeight - (footerOff ? -4 : footer) - mainContentEl.getBoundingClientRect().top + document.body.getBoundingClientRect().top - (innerWidth < 1500 ? 6 : 12) - mainBottomPad) + 'px';
Media queries!! Media query it all the way
 
Already asked q on SO.
Not possible.
 
Maybe you shouldn’t be doing it then!
… what is it doing
 
JS is required for the body to expand so footer is on the bottom
I guess I might be able to hack thru it with table layout, but no.
 
Oh, no, that’s not necessary
Let me see if I can remember how to do that
 
I can give you access to the repo.
 
3:37 AM
you do it like this
display: flex;
:)
 
@bjb568 Sure, why not
@AlexisKing <3
 
@AlexisKing Me likes, but gah those browser incompatibilities.
 
@bjb568 Flexbox is pretty well-supported now.

Congrats to @HoboSapiens who is now #5 in downvotes on SO, overtaking Peter Mortensen.
 
@bjb568 … they do that? Why?
 
"I want it" "It looks like yer not qualified"
 
3:41 AM
Did they say why you weren’t qualified?
 
"why? what? I should be…" "no reply button"
 
Just got pinged for this, although I have no idea when it was posted. It seems I'm famous, or infamous, or notorious...or something
 
user259867
@HoboSapiens It says "27 mins ago" in your quote.
 
user259867
When you're out of a room, pings arrive in 15-20 minutes.
 
@pizza So it does, but the transcript said 3:30am, or thereabouts.
 
3:43 AM
@HoboSapiens UTC time. I don't really know why the transcripts don't adjust for local time.
 
@AlexisKing UTC would make sense, since it's 3:44pm, UTC+12 here
It would help if the time gave the timezone, at least.
 
Tab indentation? Can I be your friend @bjb568

Somehow people don't mind using Soviet symbols for a lark... doing the same with Nazi symbols is generally frowned upon, though.
 
@pizza I laugh at swastikas, too.
@bjb568 Yeah it's from some google thing, I was looking for something with no whitespace.
The transparency annoys me, but I couldn't come up with a good way to compose all the parts. That's why I don't do graphic design.
