Today (2015-07-26 UTC) is the 5th birthday of TeX - LaTeX, the least-downvoting SE site of them all. A post from their first day of existence: How to look up a symbol or identify a math symbol or character?
 
user259867
Trivia: the locals refer to the site as TeX-SX, abbreviating Stack Exchange as SX rather than SE.
 
user259867
Anyway, congratulations! Keep TeX-SX weird.

@NormalHuman umm... cleaner should be +20
 
user259867
If it's really stinky, probably.
 
user259867
Looks like Easy Data Feed spammers gave up on SO. Sometimes they learn.
 
user259867
Either that, or got IP-blocked.
 
@NormalHuman more like you'd get a suspension for defacing
@bjb fly away kitty, fly away
 
user259867
Did you ever get a suspension for that reason? I triggered that flag once, but mod only sent a message & undeleted posts, without suspending.
 
user259867
12:27 AM
It's a wonder I managed to not get suspended anywhere on SE yet.
 
Someone got a suspension for that a few months ago, I'm sure you can still find the discussion on Meta SE/SO
 
user259867
Yes, the infamous case of BalusC after which they revamped the trigger.
 
I haven't been suspended ever yet on SE. I think I may have got question warning or maybe even question ban once (think meta) but Mr. Post got me out of it.
 
@NormalHuman Infamous.
 
user259867
Yes, that's better.
 
12:30 AM
A suspension that shall live forever in infamy.
@NormalHuman Ah, but do they know how the syntax of skin care? Taxidermy has a long apprenticeship.

1:19 AM
@NormalHuman People do, but if it looks like you know what you're doing mods tend to stay away from suspending you
Mainly because suspension is generally a Not Good Thing for user engagement :P
 
user259867
It may be a good thing for user enragement.
 
actually, just not that user engagement
 
@NormalHuman you can't be enraged if your not engaged
unless your crazy maybe
idk
 
@Dronehinge his crazy what?

Yes, the limit doesn't seem to exist anymore. [status-completed]?
 
unless there was a new rehashing, then close as duplicate

i have 9 active flags on meta.SE , meta.SE needs its own mods
 
user259867
That's one way to solve the problem.
 
user259867
1:50 AM
Not the only one.
 
@Dronehinge It has its own mods. You cannot expect employees work to Saturday nights. :)
 
user259867
That's why it needs volunteer moderators. Because they can be expected to work Sat nights.
 
but i think you'll notice most once-mods now-employees activity goes down after becoming official employee, since they have new duties now and understandably don't spend as much off-time on site (i think).. so that's why i think it should have 2-3 regular mods :/
i nominate normal and jan
but many others suitable as well

I guess the spam post wasn't in the SO realtime sample, which is why the title didn't trigger. Then Smokey was waiting for 5 posts to accumulate before making an API call.

starsplusplusI tend to put information on my profiles that's relevant for that particular site.

Is there any priority blog/discussion?
 
user259867
Not really. But generally, they try to implement multiple changes at once: if someone has to dig through the code, they may well revamp it in more ways than one.
 
user259867
6:33 AM
I heard that there are tentative plans to redo the network profile, including, for one thing, the cumulative People Reached stat.
 
user259867
I imagine than any proposed changes to network profile will wait until this redesign happens.
 
I mean If there any way to get notify Is it planned or not? If started how much completed? etc.

No, not really. They might get to it one day. Or not.

user259867
Because on ru.SO it is "http://cdn.sstatic.net/ru/img/newsletter-ad.png" which is 404.
 
user259867
Or perhaps betas have newsletters, but not newsletter ads?
 
user259867

Probably, ru.SO uses some bits from SO design, which assumes the existence of ads.
