Damm @Unihedro, beat me to that comment by 15 seconds :)

You're free to ask them what "IST" stands for.
 
I'm not interested in the IST, the SOLL is what matters
 
Is adding to an question a legit edit?

I'm getting this bug again:

Q: Upvoting comments in the Low Quality Posts Review Queue does not actually upvote the comment

Unihedro I've tried clicking it with both my mouse and my track pad or on a phone but it really doesn't work, as it doesn't show that the comment has any score at all when I open the post in a new tab.

 
Mods do have access to who down- or upvoted, right?

Morning!

and they can't find out without going through a complicated process
 
Ah, why is that? Linky?
So voting is anonymous even for mods
 
@bjb568 Well, your bot now reached the highest level of borkedness...
:p
 
Eh, they can see if user X voted on a post by going to user X's profile, but they cannot see which users voted on post P.

The intent of the function is to look at voting irregularities at the developer level. And of course developers have access to the underl...

 
8:22 AM
Yeah, didn't realize it did go that far
tnx
 
Hahahaha.
@Kabyle then it's a good thing that your accounts got deleted. Please stop asking questions. SO has quality requirements and you obviously fail to meet them, if you managed to get four accounts question banned. — l4mpi 29 secs ago
 
@J.Steen Linky?
 
lol
 
@James Clicky timestamp.
 
ahhh
 
8:27 AM
@J.Steen at least this user is honest about it....
 
...after getting banned, four times. =D
 
... but I never got banned on Yahoo Answers! How can this be?
 
No, my job, my income! Why is life so unfair?

@SmokeDetector tpu
 
@Unihedro Blacklisted user and registered question as true positive: added title to the Bayesian doctype 'bad'.
 
:)
 
@J.Steen nothing quite like kicking them while they are down
 
You mean like this?
The ability to ask questions, and post answers are not linked. You can still answer questions while you have a question ban. That said, if you managed to lock out 4 other accounts...... perhaps your answers were just as awful as your questions. — James 1 min ago
 
exactly
I despise users like this
whiny little shits
@Pham gone
 
8:37 AM
BIT LATE, PHAM.
 
@James Access denied (this incident will be reported).
 
?
 
@Pham gone
 
oh, thats a command
whoops
 
Now you'll get reported, be prepared :p
 
8:38 AM
I am prepared for the black helicopters
 
Sam
@J.Steen Qantas TPA'd that, so...
 
I'll cover my eyes in case of flying glass shards as they kick the windows in
 
oops, should have tp'd instead. my bad
 
@Sam Okay. It's all Qantas' fault.
 
^^^
 
Sam
8:39 AM
@J.Steen At the HQ we prefer to call it off-by-one-human-errors.
 
@Sam Qantas is off by one? That explains a lot.
 
@J.Steen the user obviously didn't bother to read word 1 of any of the help tutorial, but bad things are happening, so they'll just whine out in the open and waste everyone's time. It's been migrated from SO to meta, then the user is arguing with the legions of annoyed meta users who are repeatedly pointing out with links why what they have done is utterly unacceptable
 
Yes, there's a letter missing
* cries *
 
@J.Steen Actually, he's Qantas 95 Heavy, not 94.
 
@Qantas94Heavy Don't be sad, have a cookie!
 
8:40 AM
@ProgramFOX Zing.
 
I will acquire one. Then you can have it.
 
What is Pham?
 
@Pham can I have a smoke cookie?
 
@James It's a bot to detect low-quality posts and spam on the network. A bit like Smokey, but its main goal is LQ posts.
 
8:42 AM
it runs in the Low Quality Posts HQ room
 
@SmokeDetector tpu
 
@James Blacklisted user.
 
@James I'm a me!
>>info
@Pham Phamhilator.Core is a .NET-based internet bot written in C# which watches over the /realtime tab of Stack Exchange. Owners: Sam, Unihedro, ProgramFOX, Jan Dvorak, Patrick Hofman & Mooseman.
 
I WANT COOKIES.
 
@ProgramFOX sigh, if your English isn't good, don't embellish it with nonsense OP.
 
8:43 AM
ahhh
 
@James You should've done a tp, not a tpu.
 
@Bart I think that's copy-pasted from the assignment
 
@SmokeDetector tp
 
@ʎǝʞuoɯɹǝqʎɔ true/tp cannot be used for answers because their job is to add the title of the question to the Bayesian doctype 'bad'. If you want to blacklist the poster of the answer, use trueu or tpu.
 
@ʎǝʞuoɯɹǝqʎɔ why?
 
8:44 AM
@ʎǝʞuoɯɹǝqʎɔ As Smokey says, only tpu can be used for answers when marking as true positive.
 
@James The user is blacklisted, it's just a crappy question, not a crappy user. Only blacklist users which are spammers or constantly provide poor questions.
oh, now I see
 
@ʎǝʞuoɯɹǝqʎɔ It was a spammer here. The post was an answer.
 
so you can't blacklist an answer
 
don't mind me
 
@Pro needs to start a Smokey training room for new privileged users
 
8:45 AM
but but but i did it right
 
@InfiniteRecursion There's one on chat.se domain
 
yeah, and the spam's gone
 
Go to botling training ce... I think I got wrong chat room.
 
@Unihedro that one is for Smokey training, not for users training :p
 
ugh much confuze
 
8:46 AM
@James No, indeed. All tp does is adding the question title to the Bayesian doctype 'bad', so it cannot be used for answers.
 
ugh much bjb lingo
 
ugh catz.
 
ugh future mod
 
@ProgramFOX but I used tpu so shouldn't that alert us if the user posts again
 
ugh ugh

A: What is the quickest, easiest way to compress a mp3 file?

AshenUse MP3 Quality Modifier (freeware). I managed to get some 11MB files down to 2MB. Minor quality loss due to me using 64-bit encoding but the choice to use higher is there as well so enjoy.

 
Go see a doctor @AndrewT.
 
inuf-san! >_>
 
D:
 
@James It does, yes. tpu blacklists a user, meaning that all of its posts (on one site!) will be reported here.
 
@ProgramFOX So isn't that what I should have done in this case?
 
8:48 AM
@James yes
 
@ʎǝʞuoɯɹǝqʎɔ I never knew Super User was for programming...
 
no yes no yes
 
@James yep, your action was correct here
 
Phew
 
@ʎǝʞuoɯɹǝqʎɔ Psst. It's on superuser. Not SO.
 
8:48 AM
dammit
 
And even if a user is incorrectly blacklisted, it's not a too big problem, we have !!/rmblu to undo it :)
 
@ʎǝʞuoɯɹǝqʎɔ Take a break. =D
 
Mesmerisingly fluid, that.
 
@ʎǝʞuoɯɹǝqʎɔ That should be a new command of mine. :P

That's a new one.

Will you be running for mod?
 
Unfortunately some mods candidates really shouldn't be
 
I have a sneaking suspicion I know who @JanDvorak means.
 
8:54 AM
@J.Steen "some" and plural form :)
 
my eyes hurt
 
some = more than one
 
maybe its time to go home
 
@J.Steen if only he would be more vocal about it then I would know as well. But the man is so subtle.

I'm not visiting any of those sites.
 
Why? are you swedisht?

@SilentKiller Yeah, there are two different James in here.
 
@InfiniteRecursion Yeah, @Shog9 never gets enough mentions.

Is it me, or do the avatars on the right look terribly grainy?
 
@James you should really change your name. Either of you.

@J.Steen how do you expect me to get anything done?
 
Inb4 @Unihedro gets a lot of mysterious pings
 
@Bart we don't want to know...
 
@Bart Switch to vodka.
 
a removed ping
 
Inb4 @Unihedro mysteriously stops chatting.
 
9:02 AM
That's a bit open-ended
 
something fishy. ^ :P
 
@Unihedro is unlikely to disappear; he has a crab to protect him.

@Pham How many pings are we at now?
 
Nothing's more mysterious than a message that isn't there

@rene I'm not sure I'll get a chance, @Bart would've probably fallen for my coffee trap before getting to my door.
 
Coffee!
 
9:09 AM
only if Sam runs a bot on his computer. Oh wait
 
Lot of mod candidates want to clean up , send them to android.se to clear the First Post queue.
 
Sam
@JanDvorak I'll have 3 of 'em running soon. :p
 
@InfiniteRecursion What I've noticed is that they don't seem to have many reviews in the CV queue; most only do ~1000, likely only for the badge.
It'd be too edgy of a question though, so I held off.
 
@JanDvorak Don't worry, the mods will certainly enjoy this. I sent them a message telling them all about it. — Qantas 94 Heavy 2 mins ago

oh. gone
 
@JanDvorak how disappointing.
 
How's it?
 
Don't you enjoy the company of spam? ;)
 
@InfiniteRecursion Most possibly we don't drive thru FPQ since we can just refresh the page and read each active post
 
9:16 AM
@Unihedro Yes, it's unfortunate. They have no Meta participation, no voting, no reviews. They all mention two things in common in their nomination posts: vote for us for our XYZ timezone and android-tag cleanup :(
 
@InfiniteRecursion Welp, I just hope the better people win, I have no intent to pick on them :)

KabyleWhy my profile has been deleted with all my questions and answers ? yesterday I set a bounty on a question and now everything is gone. I have 4 accounts here, all of them deleted. Do not get me wrong: I never upvoted for each others.

 
lol, everytime you open the tab, people in tavern are talking about "How to nuke a question"
 
And there, gone by author.

Too harsh?
It shouldn't take 10 minutes to drag a complete question out of someone.
