@MsYvette I'm, uh... looking... forward to it? >_<
I'm waiting for the time when spammer uses the correct term of "mass loss" instead of "weight loss", and I'm also waiting for them to suggest to go to space/moon for weight loss...
2:29 PM
@Doorknob :) I knew you would..
this is what you get when the community gets upset with people attempting to edit plagiarised wiki excerpts :P
@AndrewT. even density gain might be preferable if reduced fat and increase muscle is the goal
@Doorknob I have a bookmark for you i.sstatic.net/gZ3zh.png
@MsYvette You know, I used to be a huge proponent of stopping tag wiki plagiarism. Nobody was listening, though, so I eventually gave up on it... clearly you're more persevering than me :P
@Doorknob 1 2 3 4
2:34 PM
Ok, what do I do with these?
The excerpts are straight out plagiarised.
I have updated some plagiairsed excerpts with original content, but didn't want to go over the line and get rejected edits.. so if you look at the wiki content, you should find links to the original site
Your first link doesn't appear to be plagiarized
You can renew your enthusiasm and join @Undo and I :)
@Doorknob oh sorry no, that one just has crappy punctuation and I didn't think it warranted me putting in an edit suggestion
2:37 PM
haha okay
are you cool to fix that.? oops
Yeah, no problem
you can see where I've struggled to write an original wiki and just added attribution, in some edits I've also added original wiki content :)
So just nuke the plagiarized excerpts, yeah?
2:39 PM
And rewrite them, if possible?
yeh, but they can't be left blank, so there's the rub
I thought excerpts can be blank?
the wikis can
Oh, huh, I thought it was the other way around
2:40 PM
that was what I got into trouble over. adding a generic excerpt with a link to the docs
Excerpt can be blank when the tag first created, but I don't know if it's possible to blanken the excerpt if it existed
there's enough room in the wikis to make the plagiarised stuff a quote with room to add more detail
@AndrewT. correct, it cannot one it's been created..
Can excerpts even do Markdown?
2:41 PM
I don't think so, I haven't had the grace to test this though
I am happy to edit the excerpts if I create new content for the wiki, as then it's pretty easy to add a new blurb.
Excerpt supposed to be a short-and-simple guideline when to use the tag.
@AndrewT. yeh but sometimes I don't know how to paraphrase that, as I have no clue what the tag is yabbering on about
Speaking of wiki edits I don't know if someone wants to do something with this, it's just marketing crap copied from Xilinx's page but my edit got rejected: stackoverflow.com/review/suggested-edits/9639635
2:43 PM
So, if I have no idea what some of these tags mean... how do I rewrite the excerpts properly?
I understand what this means but beyond saying use this tag when using this language
@Doorknob this was my point on meta, when I was removing the stolen content and replacing it with for questions about -tag- plus link
Can haz linky?
in the wiki
Blame the robo-reviewer..
2:46 PM
I can write one for MS Blend if you like and you can add it?
actually just use the paragraph I've written, that should be ok
Wouldn't it make more sense for you to suggest the edit directly (and I'll approve it)?
Oh, okay, I'll use that paragraph
If you're ok with that. I need to coordinate a time when you're able to go through them though
Do you want me to edit the google and solidity ones?
2:48 PM
The google-elevation-api doesn't appear to be plagiarized either
it's a copy and paste from the google docs
is that acceptable, without attribution?
is it? I searched it within quotes and the only results were SO
that's because of our wiki tag
have a look at the link I supplied in the wiki. trust me it's all there
2:50 PM
in some cases editors remove a few words within the paragraph, but it's still >90% copied, in which case I make sure that any quotes are 100%
Oh, huh, yeah, it is
it's a painstaking process, as you already know
Github has a new fancy markdown editor

I don't think you can call yourself a javascript programmer if you get (and don't know how to fix) undefined bugs
there's only one thing worse than legacy code
and that's a broken coffee machine
Meh, coffee sucks. Hot chocolate FTW.
a coffee machine still makes hot chocolate ;p
you can even get keurig hot chocolate cups
10:32 PM
might as well just get the packets & boil some hot water...
(Keurig + cups = expensive. Boil water + hot chocolate packet = $0.01.)
they're actually some after-market brand so they're not as expensive
Should've known there's off-brand keurig cups...
i believe some K machines actually have a QR Code reader in them and refuse to work with after-market K-cups.
there's a company that sells stickers you can put on top of your after-market cups to make them work, or something similar.
10:52 PM
@hichris123 boil? o_0
Hot chocolate powder + brown sugar + reasonable 130˚F water from the sink works for me
normal people boil the water in a kettle
you cats with your silly logic
I feel like I had this exact same argument on YouTube almost a year ago.
over coffee.
its freaking me out
my sink at home doesn't do temperatures that my kettle does, so I use the kettle

My question has had very little activity. Is there any reason why that would be?
because meta is murder
No, but seriously, I normally get closed within a few minutes. This has had 13 views, 1 edit, and no up/downvotes, no close votes.
It's... eerily quiet.
it's a feature req, not a bug or question about site workings
Q: Chat Onebox Raw Text File Links

VoteToCloseOftentimes, while testing code or linking to raw GitHub, I find myself wishing that raw text or program files would one box. For example, the link: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/VTCAKAVSMoACE/Vitsy/master/examples/MathTest.vt should one-box; I want the person with whom I'm working to be abl...

Ohaaaay, it got an upvote.
Probably from PPCG @Quill.
11:26 PM
Well, you're honorarily from PPCG.
Even though you... hiss Code Review...
I have PPCG rep ;p I do challenges sometimes
I'm still getting there, but it's fun
PPCG is pretty cool.
Have you seen the user script? x.x It's awesome.
yeah, I saw it
What about the eval bot?
didn't see that one
11:30 PM
We found a way to externally host chatbots. :D
"externally host"?
@MikeEdenfield Out of c9.io
i mean externally as opposed to what?
As opposed to running through a browser on a local machine.
11:42 PM
i thought they all did that.
mine's running on an old linux server in my closet
No, most of them run through Google Chrome scripts.
I'm using a python SE chat library.
looks like you're probably using the same one :)
bjbotling ran on skynet
@MikeEdenfield Mhmm. :D
@bjb568 :o
works pretty good.
11:44 PM
node and userscripts power my bots
on occasion the websockets get stale and the bot cycles itself.
but i don't think that's chatexchange's fault.
smokey's running on chatexchange too, right?
you really missed an opportunity there to call it Smokey the Bot
@bjb568 I don't believe you get the full flavor without 100 C water. ;)
@MikeEdenfield Yep.
