A: Visiting the Developer Story Preferences tab makes the story tab visible, even if I never touch the checkbox

Shog9This is fixed now, but not in the way I expected. Turns out, I was extremely confused as to how this was supposed to work... And what that option was supposed to do in the first place. Since bluefeet and the rest of the Story team took some time to explain things to me, I figured I'd write up my ...

> This goes back to the original charter for the "Dev Story" feature: the long-term goal is to replace the "bio" section, the one that shows up on the first page of the profile.
Boo. We go from old profile (functional) to new profile (shiny) to dev story (um, something I guess?).
Turned that (very) confusing setting off; I'm likely never going to have a Dev Story and thus have no need for an empty tab.
1:44 AM
Profile of Theseus
Anyway, it's not done until there's an envelope on it
Well, I sure hope it doesn't get done... it would make the new shiny and not as useful profile even less useful.
@hichris123 keep in mind, the purpose of that first page has little if no overlap with the sorts of things you do on these sites.
Or me, for that matter.
That's true now
A: New profile pages are out - bugs and feedback master list

hichris123status-declined - we may revisit this at a later date. Allow us to default to the Activity page rather than the Profile page A lot of times, when I'm going to someone's profile, I don't care about their website, location, age, profile description, etc. I care about their posts, their edits, the...

Fortunately, I'm mod everywhere so I always see the useful page.
1:52 AM
Before that was true, I just wrote a userscript to do the same.
then you didn't donate the script to the rest of us? what a shame!
it was... pretty heavily customized to my own uses
If something necessitates a userscript for more than a small number of people... something needs fixing.
guessing most of you don't need "merge" and "delete" as the first two links on every user page
No, but it could be integrated with the punch userscript...
1:55 AM
why, I wouldn't mind having them ...
2:21 AM
aww ...

@Mazura what do you mean mobile HNQ list? Can you post a link?
7:29 AM
Forgot to tell you, @Magisch: a post deletion triggered that recalc, but we weren't able to figure out, off the bat, where the rep loss came from. Adam will dig more when he has time.

@SmokeDetector ignore not spam
@ShadowWizard Post ignored; alerts about it will no longer be posted.
@JNat recalc, rep loss.... sounds like I missed some drama?
No drama. Magisch lost some rep, and asked why. I had a look, and couldn't figure out why.
Wouldn't call it drama :)
7:39 AM
Putting popcorn away
@JNat you must be bored, no cross site spammers to nuke.... :D
Yeah, you better get me some spammers quick; wth am I being paid for? :P
what's the spammer to troll ratio that you have to take care of on an average day?
Sometimes the line is too thin to care about. (between spammer and troll :))
@ShadowWizard a new site proposal just for you and the others user in the Den :P

Proposed Q&A site for those interested in common etiquette and public expectations within certain cultures/society.

Currently in definition.

@Derpy hehe, good! :D

@Derpy Ugh, this'd prolly be filled with whining about SO
8:20 AM
@Rubisco nope, just about SO uncouth users :P
@Derpy I wonder, who those users can be...... :D
@ShadowWizard I think someone once even made a top list....
8:47 AM
@Derpy lol, somepony is confusing SO and Den/WAG, I'm afraid.... :P
(I'm very civil and polite on SO ;))
in the meantime, someone sent me this. May as well share it here.

@JNat Shouldn't post deletions show up
If they don't then they should
@Magisch The post that triggered it is in your rep tab (make sure the checkbox at the bottom is checked). The title was "spring security + primefaces custom login"
However, the rep you lost does not seem to be associated with that post
Hence the need to dig further to understand what it's about
We know what triggered the recalc, but not where the rep came from
Basically, a post got deleted. You had downvoted that post, so a recalc was triggered, and you got 1 rep back. But that recalc also caused that 200 something loss.
And we're not yet sure what that's about
Was that clear, @Magisch? :)

@JNat o_O
I can only assume docs shenanigans then
@JNat Does a downvoted answer that gets deleted always trigger a recalc?
Because that happens at least 3 times for me on a usual day. I flag lots and lots of NAA and often times I also downvote them.
@Magisch I think so. And looking at your history, it appears so too, yeah.
@Shog9 might know better, though
@JNat Then what happened must be something in the grand scheme of the site changed between my last recalc and the one yesterday noon for me
Something that caused my total rep to evaluate lower
10:41 AM
Yeah. Just not sure what yet :P
Must be frustrating to dig through
I assume so :\
If that really is a recalc every time it may be wise for me to stop downvoting NAA
So that that doesn't happen like 10 times a day
@JNat I'm sorry that I'm taking up so much cm time :(
Nah, don't sweat it ;)
11:00 AM
@JNat Can you pass this to the responsible staffer at SO?
Seems like a pretty big data privacy exploit on SO that is now linked front and center
So the clock is ticking on people using it for malicious purposes
Devs have looked at the post already. So no need for me to pass anything along :P

@JNat Looks like I'm not the only one who suffered sudden rep loss without trace: meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/336236/…
2:42 PM
@ShadowWizard Sorry, not the "HNQ" list. It's just SE.com's Hot Questions (which I have as a button on my iPhone; I never installed the app or anything). And of course it's not happening atm.
3:08 PM
I can't access wikipedia ...
err ..
3:28 PM
@Telkitty What did you break this time?
3:50 PM
@Oded Hi!
@JNat It may be something bigger then just me drawing the short straw again then :p
@amanaPlanaCAnalPAnaMA ho
@Oded How are you doing?
Not bad.
Hey oded
3:51 PM
@Oded Anything new by you?
Not much, really. Gearing up to the company meetup in a few weeks.
How are things in Panama?
Uhhh. Never been.
Weather nice there?
Ups and downs. Was raining cats and dogs in the morning, a bit of sun in the afternoon, overcast right now. Feels like winter has come.
4:01 PM
@Oded Is there something like a "Stackoverflow convention" somewhere?
@Magisch we usually have a product team once a year. Last I heard there were ~170 people coming to this one.
@Oded is that open to outside visitors or just employees?
@Oded Oh it's a family reunion
@Magisch employees only. This is a working meeting - talking about the company, how we're doing, where we're going etc...
@Rubisco kinda
@Oded So not a convention and more of a team meeting
I was thinking maybe like a SE pax
4:07 PM
IIRC a while ago someone who can give the promise promised us at some point that some feature requests will be implemented.
Like blizzcon but for SE
At a consistent rate.
I didn't see that happen though.
Though retracting flags was sweeeeeet
Only if we could see more of those requests . . .
@Magisch pretty much.
4:08 PM
On a new plane. At Philadelphia.
They mention Galaxy Note 7 every flight now.
@bjb568 Weren't cats afraid of heights or something?
No, we always land on our feet.
Could you try jumping out of the window to see if you land on your feet?
The windows don't open o_0
@Magisch that would be sweet. But I don't think we have anything like that planned. You can ask on MSE.
@bjb568 I'll be on a plane to Philadelphia in a few weeks.
4:11 PM
Have SOCon in London, and I'll head on over :D
46m from takeoff to Boston.
I wish devdays were still a thing. I went to the first one, was going to go to the second one (which was cancelled), but did go to the replacement event someone organized.
We're doing the safety video. Bye.
@bjb568 scratch them. BITE THEM and become FREE
Good flight @bjb568
4:15 PM
Have a feline landing @bjb
@Oded If you make a SOCon somewhere I'll find a way to attend it
And then I'll gift kittens to josh and punyon

Q: How to tell why macOS thinks that a certificate is revoked?

kirelaginI cannot access Wikipedia on both my Macs. macOS says that the intermediate certificate used to sign Wikipedia’s certificate (GlobalSign Organization Validation CA - SHA256 - G2) has been revoked. I don’t believe that the certificate in question has been revoked, so I checked manually GlobalSi...

tl;dr Wikipedia's cert issuer is having problems
@ChrisForrence had the same. Powerpoint isn't letting me copy/paste in images anymore from wikicommons. It says the certificate has been revoked.
5:06 PM
I'd get it if the comments on SO blog were simply turned off. Never was a fan of the genre. But removing a bunch of reasonable comments while keeping the functionality seems odd. When Podcast #88 joked about Esperanto, a couple of Esperantists made polite and informative counterpoints. Gone.
Under the blog post on DevStory, Magisch and others made reasonable, if not eloquent, comments on how the feature works (or doesn't) for them. Gone.
@zaq Saw that earlier
5:19 PM
Oh snap. Vimeo's CDN is also affected.
5:30 PM
I'm here.
2 hours later…
7:01 PM
@Magisch Was a Jekyll upgrade mishap, unclear if the comments will be restored.
My hotel has free hot chocolate. :D
@Mazura I don't think SE.com has mobile theme, what we see on mobile is the same as desktop. And probably when you switched pages, the question list has been "refreshed" so the last question in the first page lost some points and went down a bit.
7:59 PM
If Shog9 says that's actually a reasonable argument. does it also implies he agrees with the argument?
I guess the answer is it depends and in a specific case I stumbled on it means no
8:23 PM
mornin' @rene
8:41 PM
8:52 PM
@rene of course not. But why not ask him? ;)
@ShadowWizard why bother the floating head ...
@rene to get an answer... to gain knowledge... to hear his voice...
10:20 PM
Wow, this question was recieved really awesomely XD
Apparantly 2-3 downvotes was not enough to teach me a lesson :) meta.stackexchange.com/questions/285708/…
@Shog9 Thanks :)
10:43 PM
Is it a planned outage? I didn't see anything on the tweet/blog
nvm, back up
@TravisJ It looks like something happened with Fastly just now.
11:12 PM
@JonEricson - The default offline message showed "SE is offline, see tweet or blog"-ish. Was down approx 3 minutes. You probably have access to some sort of log for that though I would assume. I didn't see anything buckling prior to the outage, or anything odd after.
@TravisJ Yeah. Not everyone got the offline message, but there was a rather large drop in traffic around 2239 to 2243. The SREs are still investigating.
Chat remained up (hence my message in here), but I think that is probably because they run from different servers? Often chat is still active if there is an issue.
Correct. It was just SO.com as far as I know.
