Phew. I thought that was a single site.

@Braiam Yup, both of them have failed in the past but are getting a new start
 
user259867
Since neither had enough activity on its own, why not try putting them together?

@Braiam How to persuade a server to sent an 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header in response to my ajax request?
which would trigger the same comments...
 
user259867
I think the title is ok, it's consistent with OP's knowledge at the time of asking.
 
user259867
The fact that that header is something the server sends was unknown at the time.
 
user259867
Others with the same questions will likely think along the same lines.
 
yeah, but I think that many people hits that question when they shouldn't (ie. they aren't using a Google extension)
 
user259867
6:41 PM
Right, and the issue had nothing to do with the header after all...
 
user259867
You could state the problem as it was: Chrome extension unable to get data from a server after switch to https.
 
user259867
A title that states the actual problem, avoids the XY.
 
I like that

@NormalHuman I had to put origin control somewhere (since is part of the error message)
 
user259867
@Braiam Chrome extension getting "error message" using ajax after the server switched to https.
 
user259867
Or drop "using ajax", what else could it be, for an extension.
 
don't bring it down to HALP, PROBLEM AJAX
 
@rene no, I would leave it as HALP, PROLEMO!
 
user259867
 
user259867
6:47 PM
"due to" would be more grammatical.
 
@NormalHuman +1
@Braiam go for it...
 
user259867
Somehow, I never ran into this with my extensions: my permissions were ://.domain.tld
 
@rene checks achievements icon... cries in a corner
 
user259867
Anything to avoid "accessing all data on all sites" warning message...
 
user259867
It's stupid how Google keeps scaring people with warning messages without letting them see the source.
 
6:50 PM
that's part of the issue, the list of sites are dynamic, the user could theoretically add their own domain, like an rss reader
oh that... is another cents
 
user259867
I recently switched to mostly using Tampermonkey scripts, even though it's a downgrade in some ways. At least there you trust only one, well-known, extension, with the rest being easily inspectable.

Q: How to come out of friendzone?

Jatin GuptaMost of my female friends (all of them) put me in friend zone and some has even placed me in the VIP section of it. All I want to know is how to come out of this friend zone?

... and it's over. Did @Undo make an election-result-announcing bot at some point, or am I imagining it?
 
:)
Oh, it's open-source now too.
 
user259867
@Undo Neat! Since this is network-wide Tavern, maybe it could post here too?
 
Maybe. Probably.
 
user259867
It's not like we have a dozen elections ending every day.
 
except I'd need to get someone to add the bot to the write list
 
user259867
8:04 PM
Or it could post something on Meta.
 
user259867
Like a feature request: 100 flags for mods, network-wide.
 
That'd require 5 rep, and it'd look more official than I really want it to I'm an idiot and can't understand words.

I'm just afraid that someday a bit will get flipped or something and it'll report the wrong winners, and there'll be unhappiness.
 
user259867
That's a concern with site-specific chatrooms, much less with the Tavern.
 
user259867
8:11 PM
The bot can itself say it's unofficial...
 
There probably should be a disclaimer before the actual message

> Unofficial election results: Winner is schroeder.

Unofficial results: Winner is schroeder.
That'll do nicely.

user259867
It all kind of goes back to Adi's nomination that I mentioned here earlier... unnecessarily polarizing, it cost him at least my vote for sure, and probably a few more. He was still the cult favorite; more #1 picks than anyone else, but rarely the 2nd or 3rd choice of a voter.

There is also plenty of "them" below, but I guess it's singular... even though it seems reasonable to guess that schroeder is "he", maybe it's better not to.

user259867
Is this just a coincidence, or do you find that getting one mod at a time works better than electing more?
 
[ SmokeDetector ] Repeating words in body: Count function in excel by Sophia Liu on superuser.com
 
@NormalHuman Coincidence. On midlevel sites like those, there's rarely a need for 3 more moderators. Generally we just need one to take a bit of the workload or replace an exiting moderator.

I finally got around to making a minimal Trello bookmarklet for creating a card from a Stack Exchange question. Was surprised this hasn't been done before... if a question requires some background research, it's convenient to put it on a list, add parts of an answer as comments, etc.

Understandably, Trello isn't meant to be a personal to-do list, but it can serve that function too.
