@JasonC The point I'm trying to make is that finding examples of this is hard when the system as it's currently implemented doesn't let these things rise to the surface of the barrel of sludge, when I think it really could.
 
@Braiam Kinda
 
OH JOY!
 
@Shog9's day has been made.
 
I just found two pieces of pizza in the fridge. Now I just hope that white stuff on top is cheese
 
6:02 AM
@AlexisKing If the point you're trying to make is that finding these examples are hard, then that's what you should discuss in your meta post, but I'm confused, because the issue you claim to be talking about is "the issue of what the hell to do with old, highly-upvoted questions with very useful answers".
So, like I said, reel this back in.
 
@JasonC You're right. That meta question was muddled. I should've sorted out the issues I was trying to discuss better.
 
@Shog9 I'm told that if you blow it you can know for sure
 
@Shog9 It doesn't matter what it is. Sprinkle some bacon bits on it and it'll be delicious.
 
It was too hastily written without enough review.
 
Protip: want a scintillating meta discussion, but don't have enough data to prove the existence of a problem? Lay out your theory, complete with criticisms, and ask for help proving or disproving it.

@AstroCB, can I borrow you in the Triage school chatroom?
 
I think Shog has a little brother that he's never told us about, who, every once in a while, sneaks up to his computer and types smart things.
 
@Shog9 Part of the idea of that question was really just to try and do some research of exactly that type, not find a definitive answer to anything. It was an open-ended discussion. That said, I don't think it served that purpose very well at all, even if Meta did serve as a better platform for that.
 
I have many little brothers I've never told you about.
 
... Is that a threat?
 
It's weirdly ominous.

@pizza I got to do that just two days ago! \o/

Should we spam @animuson with Happy Birthday mentions?
 
Yes.
 
what is a tavern for, if not birthday wishes?

@pizza puts date on calendar
 
Happy Birthday @animuson!
 
For @animuson's a jolly good fellow,

Most of whom are deleted anyway
 
@Shog9 I was wondering if you were going to go british or american. Thanks for taking the middle ground.
 
@animuson was probably my favorite mod on SO since he sometimes did what people in the tavern asked him to
 
@Roombatron5000 As opposed to all the reasonable mods, who intelligently use the Tavern as reconnaissance for the opposite of what to do.
Hey, @Shog9, ... can you get this done while you're in here?
yesterday, by Jason C
Let's just give diamonds to the entire tavern and call it a day.
 
diamonds for the Tavern, coming up... on Lifehacks

6:14 AM
@Roombatron5000 gone
 
@Roombatron5000 I don't know why I even try to click
 
@Shog9 awwyiss
 
If somebody writes a userscript to just add diamonds next to everybody's name in this room, I'm sure we'd be just as happy playing make-believe. Actually, we might not even notice they aren't real.
 
@Shog9 why Lifehacks?
 
@Braiam it only had my 1 spam flag when I posted
 
6:14 AM
@Shog9 cool! Exactly what we wan.... err... ewww
 
@James so they can annoy the folks over on The Bridge
 
@James Because Lifehacks basically has the reputation as the toilet of Stack Exchange at this point.
 
I like to think of it as the New Jersey of Stack Exchange.
 
Don't tell anyone, but LifeHacks exists purely to give Wipqozn something to talk about.

6:16 AM
@JasonC, I'm from Australia, but from your analogy, I'm going to guess that it's like the North Queensland of Australia
or perhaps Tasmania
 
@JasonC That probably means something to wet coasters, but I have no idea what.
 
@James Hm, I'm from the USA, but from your analogy, I'm going to guess that North Queensland is like the New Jersey of USA.
So it works out.
 
we need to get that site some Utes
 
OH, you're from the Land Down Under?!

...I may have been listening to too much 70s and 80s music lately.
 
What's a New Jersey here?

Too many people said too many things, sorry.
 
Where are all these mystical places?
 
6:19 AM
What does an NJ mean?
 
@James you mean the magical place, which is Tahiti
@tchrist no jobs
 
@James One of them is in beautiful Colorado; the rest are stuck in traffic.
 
^
 
@Shog9 Don't even talk to me about traffic. mumbles something about about Los Angeles and the 405 freeway
 
I was just in Denver for the first time, I really liked it. But I didn't get to see much of the city.
It reminds me of Pittsburgh, though, a lot (my home town).
 
6:21 AM
@AlexisKing I need to drive less. I put 1800 miles on in the last 8 months alone.
 
Next time, rent a car and drive up to Longmont. Get some good beer...
 
@tchrist ? you must live close to work or do you mean 18,000
 
@Shog9 Word. I'm trying to convince my client that he'll need me to go back up there to "make sure there aren't any problems" next month when our project opens.
 
@JasonC The beauty of Colorado rests not in its cities but in its untrammelled wilderness.
@Roombatron5000 One thousand eight hundred.
 
yeah, ok, after you get the beer head up into the hills
 
6:22 AM
@tchrist I've been skiing and hiking out there plenty of times, I've just never been in or near Denver.
 
All you Americans with your black president..... all we have is a shaved gorilla in a suit

@tchrist I drive at least 40 miles most days. o.o
 
@AlexisKing Good bye love of life.
 
@tchrist Tell me about it.
I'm trying to move ASAP.
 
@Roombatron5000 I think old people spend the same amount of time driving, they just do it slower.
 
If this is retirement, I should get more sleep.
 
@tchrist What?! Tony Abbot is a shaved gorilla in a suit. He's essentially the George Bush of Australian Politics. No one is quite sure how he got to be running the country, because everyone swears that they didn't vote for him.
 
@James Is the George Bush of Australian Politics like the New Jersey of Tasmania?
 
@JasonC Yes

@James I get tired of using emoticons as punctuation. Had I meant it in seriousness, a little blue blip would have shown up, not a comment to that effect.

@tchrist I just throw emoticons everywhere because otherwise it's impossible to tell that I'm sarcastic pretty much 98% of the time.
 
6:28 AM
Actually now that I think about it, he's more a shaved gorilla in speedos
 
I'm never sarcastic, therefore I try to avoid emoticons lest someone think otherwise.
 
Hasn't he come over to america and made an ass of himself recently?
 
Weredonkey is he now?
 
@Shog9 Was that meta-sarcasm
 
nooooo
 
6:30 AM
Where's @Uni? Mind-blowing should be occurring.
 
He's already had his mind blown once today.
Actually that might have been yesterday, so he should be good to go. Although I believe he also died yesterday as well.
 
(Yeah, that's why I bring it up. -.-)
And yes, he did.
in Stack Overflow 2015 Moderator Election Chat on Stack Overflow Chat, 10 hours ago, by Jason C
@Unihedro Your mind blew and you died in the same day. Rough day?

Could be worse. He could be running for a mod.
 
I blame BizarroTim.

@tchrist Per Sock, but add a margin for error
 
Man, this chat would get a lot more interesting if I added a sock -> fabric foot garment transformation to my text replacement addon.
 
@AlexisKing Or sock -> meat.
 
@JasonC I don't even get it. I feel inadequate.
 
Don't worry, it was just weak late night humor.

Creating a new Meta post about it will likely lead to downvotes on the question
 
@ʎǝʞuoɯɹǝqʎɔ What would be the purpose of a Meta post? Spam is removed pretty quickly due to the Tavern, a Meta post won't really do anything.
Also, I'll blacklist "Clash of Clans (Hack|Cheat)" for titles
