good customer service sometimes cultivates lazy, incompetent customers
I chatted to the company that hosted my server and asked 'how do I update mysql on my site to the latest non vulnerable version', the helpdesk personnel asked me to wait then told me 'we upgraded it for you'

I just figured out how to automate certificate renewal. Yay.

Q: What's the code to get 30 lives in the original Contra?

JaydlesThere was a code you entered into Contra for NES to get 30 extra lives. You entered it with the controller. What was it?

Looking back, it's unbelievable that a Community Manager (!!!!!) would display such a profound lack of research effort.
...I misspoke. This isn't a CM here, but a Stack Exchange employee no less.
It's always entertainment when someone digs up some old dirt and flaunts it on a chat
It's Jay Hanlon, VP of Community Growth.
because only truly 'amazing' things can transpass time
But seriously, VP?
I expected better from someone who works at Stack Exchange, especially at this level.
hey, but Trump is elected as president, what's wrong with any kind of person becomes VP?

Hmm, asking a basic question during site's beta period with the goal of building site's traffic... (this question is nearing 80K views)... How awful of Jay.
Flagged the comment as obsolete, btw. Could also be non constructive. No need to shove your editorializing remark in front of thousands of visitors.

@Bart @rene your votes are needed! meta.stackexchange.com/questions/286925/… :)
@bwDraco he wasn't VP back when he asked it, only ordinary user with innocent question. Really can't see any problem with that, and that's NOT a trivial question.
You can see here he started working in SE only in July 2012.
Though he did ask a question on a fresh beta site to boost its activity:
Q: How can I figure out which side of the car the gas hatch is on (without getting out)?

JaydlesAs a longtime New York City resident, I've never owned a car. I drive fairly regularly, though, thanks to rentals, Zipcars, and the kindness of relatives and other not-quite-strangers. Since much of my driving is done in cars I've never been in before, I frequently found myself pulling into a ...

Is this trivial too?
I downvoted because this isn't a hack; it's an indicator made for this exact purpose... and it only works if you're driving a car that has this arrow. Not all of 'em do. — hairboat ♦ Dec 22 '14 at 18:40
Wonder if she's serious...
...and looks like people keep trying to close it. lol
8:21 AM
@ShadowWizard votes applied
@rene thanks! Now where is @Bart....
Or eating popcorn...
Not enough drama
Let me post a down vote rant
@rene Heh
8:34 AM
Bart made it ...
bad words, should flag ^
@ShadowWizard done
@Bart yay!
happy dance
oh, comments aren't oneboxed
> Please get rid of the bad words.
I deleted that comment @Derpy
8:36 AM
@ShadowWizard meh ... edit?
I gave him a chance, he missed it.
No point leaving it around.
^ no need @ShadowWizard, we will....
@Bart nope, if one is rude and abusive on purpose, that's his problem.
Polishing their turds won't make then learn.
-100 rep (and probably some mark in their profile for moderators?) would, on the other hand.
I don't really see the issue, unless he has edited? If it's about the arse/mouth thing ... meh
It's colourful, okay, but not that disturbing.
8:40 AM
@Bart overtime you get used to things?
@rene the internet has ruined me
I must say I am with @ShadowWizard. He has been "warned" and asked to remove the useless rude part of his post. He didn't care. Maybe after a -100 rep gift he would start to.
Then flag. I won't stop you. I just edited it out and won't flag myself.
Hah, I see the author is Dutch ... there may be a trend there ... :p
Not sure I want to get the joke there.
8:44 AM
an abusive flag is not for that
thats a case of editing it out and flagging for mod if the user keeps editing it back in
Speaking of rental cars, I have driven ute & truck before ...
@Derpy our use of language tends to be regarded as "colourful" by foreigners to put it lightly. Some even say we're downride rude. It's a bit of a cultureshock when we go abroad.
@Derpy exactly, thanks. :)
@ShadowWizard Thats not a good idea. These -100 rep also come with an IP block and most likely answer ban
And anyway, @Bart now have drama! /cc @rene ;)
8:47 AM
Not sure how it behaves for 900 rep users, but for newer users it absolutely does.
@Magisch nope. No such block or ban.
Spammers keep posting.
(until their account is nuked by a mod)
Truck driving is awesome ... coz driver's seat in the trucks is usually very tall & ... that feeling of power being in a bigger vehicle
@ShadowWizard Pretty sure 1 nuke = you're out
@Magisch it's just a -100 rep, hidden from public view.
@Magisch so you're wrong.
otherwise spammers who haven't been destroyed wouldn't make new accounts constantly still.
I'm almost certain a nuke does more then just -100 rep
8:50 AM
@Magisch even if it was the case, spam flag nuke != rude flag nuke
if the rude flags nuke really banned people, I fear we would already be 10% less at least
My highest voted answer on meta is warning people about using the offensive flag haphazardly: meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/325542/offensive-flag-rejected/…
Maybe it only bans newer people (less rep) but I'm almost 200% sure it does ban people.
Stil think this is a nice user?

> posts with these flags will go to the moderators for further evaluation and possible deletion. Users who have been posting posts that receives too many of these flags may receive suspension. Flags like these will behave like spam flags: 3+ flags means removal from front pages (question only) and 6 flags means auto-lock, deletion, and a rep deduction of 100 rep. The user at question can face serious consequences and can be suspended and/or account removed.
8:55 AM
I'm so sure there is more to it then that
notice it is plural.
the giant S is there
I may send an inquiry to SE staff about that. I don't want to try it out myself, but I'm sure new user + nuke is instant ban
SpamRam does that. The majority of spam accounts do not get destroyed and they all post only once
@Magisch well, that rude user on MSE isn't new, it would just be -100 and no answer ban or block.
I would probably flag that custom for mod and the mod would probably tell them to cut it / lock the post
@Magisch yeah, after 6-8 weeks perhaps.
I still have pending flags from January.
Custom flags on MSE are pointless. (unless you don't really care when they will be handled.)
9:14 AM
@ShadowWizard In any case, reporting that post to SD was not a very good idea
It blacklists the user, and we just got another (false) report based on that in CHQ
9:28 AM
@Magisch hmm... well, that's a fair point.
@ShadowWizard I already dealt with it
oh, OK
9:47 AM
@ShadowWizard left a comment, but I guess he's on his way out
@Magisch Yup
Well, you removed half a paragraph without an edit summary @Bart, I saw that removed, went "hm", and just clicked "rollback' as it wasn't really obvious what the problem was ... But I'll remove my harmless little joke if it offends people so :-/ — Carpetsmoker 2 mins ago

10:04 AM
@Bart yeah, we appreciate that Dutch humor ...

Story of my life ...
10:29 AM
do we need to keep this around?
Serious opinion here.
This user avatar ... anyone else thinks it may be a little.... problematic at best?
certainly unsavory
10:45 AM
@Derpy I'm personally not that sensitive but I can see how others might object to the image presented there.
the problem int this case probably isn't just how "sensitive" one is. This particular image also involves religion.
While I can fully understood (and probably prefer) that Stack Exchange keeps itself as a non religious organization, I think they may probably want to avoid content that may result offensive upsetting to people based on their religious belief
@Derpy Meh.
given how easy it is to insult some religion (non intentional) I don't think thats feasible
@Magisch I think that there is a difference between non intentionally posting some content that may result offensive to someone of a specific religion and taking some established iconography and turn it into a 8 bit videogame like screenshot?
What about products that mock religion
On game development.SE or arqade, would you think discussing games (with images) like binding of isaac inappropiate?
@Magisch This is actually an interesting argument. I guess that the context of the image should matter. I think that if someone posts a Nazi symbol while discussing the Third Reich history no one could really call it offensive... but if you start to use that as an avatar probably a mod will have a call with you pretty soon.
1 hour later…
12:13 PM
@Bart well, turns out it's all "fun" for him... well guess better just leave it be. -7 score, one delete vote, at least one red flag...
@rene nope, I cast my vote now... now it's @Bart's turn :)
@Derpy Problematic? Yes. Offensive to some? Yes. Flag worthy? Nope. Unlike in posts, users have more "freedom" in their profile page... it's not different than those using this as avatar, or this.
@Derpy well, Nazi symbol is a total taboo, same "league" as nudity and the like. Picture of Jesus crucified is not, as far as I know.
@ShadowWizard It's illegal to display in germany, for once
Unless you're using it in an educational context like a history lesson, depicting or displaying that can get you incarcerated I think it's up to 4 years.
@ShadowWizard given the rather realistic depiction of a crucified Jesus my catholic grandmother had hanging in her home ... I'm not sure the avatar is that much of an issue.
@ShadowWizard yep, that is why I asked. The point is that I don't know where the picture originated, but I feared it may be considered as a "parody" in some way, that's why I asked for opinions.
3 hours later…
3:04 PM
@Magisch yeah, in other places too, I think. But that's not really the point. :)
@Bart for you, but we must remember different people are genuinely offended by different things.
@ShadowWizard sure ... that what extent is up for debate, but sure.
@Derpy well, like with all other things, if you're personally offended or find it really inappropriate, flag away - just sharing my opinion I don't think it will have any effect.
@Bart that's true, and I guess moderators all around SE are handling lots of such flags every day...
hmm... I wonder, is m0sa on bug watch this week? ;)
@ShadowWizard nope, as I said, it seemed borderline to me, so I wanted to see what the community standing was about the potential issue. If this isn't seen as a problem, no need to flag for now.
@Derpy cheers, guess this one is resolved. :)
3:29 PM
Anyone here in NYC that wants to meetup for lunch today? :-)
haha, Dating.SE ;)
Haha nope. Married with 2 children. I just like meeting new people.
(and I get hungry)
Seriously though, none of the active Tavern users (except Shog perhaps) is in NYC. Bart is in Europe, Magi is in India, Derpy and rene also in Europe... not sure where zaq is from, but probably not NYC... myself in Israel (is it considered Europe? I always forget) :)
Shog is in Colorado... Jason C is in NYC.
@ShadowWizard I believe Israel is technically in Asia
3:31 PM
@zaq huh! And @Jason is even pingable, what a miracle! :)
@ShadowWizard No, you're in the middle east. You're only tollerated on the Eurovision Song contest ...
and single (afaik)
(Re: Dating.SE)

@ShadowWizard ;-)
@zaq 2 out of 3, not bad. Harder isn't always stronger though.
The song title actually has Stronger in it, the video omitted it... play.google.com/music/preview/…
Obviously, using Harder when referring to job search wouldn't be sending the right message.
@zaq indeed

Israel too, but they omitted it for obvious reasons.
Some pretty big countries aren't listed, like India and Kazakhstan.
Movies are available there, but not Music.
@ShadowWizard My apologies about this.
@bwDraco all good, just better check before accusing, especially "high profile" users. :)
4:07 PM
It was just something to poke fun at. That was poor judgment on my part.
(we were all new once....)
@ShadowWizard is high profile the same as high rep?
4:21 PM
In this context it appears to mean "someone high up in the SE management", which doesn't necessarily entail high rep.
It becomes tricky if you have an high profile that didn't get their diamond for some reason.
That said, Jaydles has the 2nd highest (cumulative, network wide) rep among those on the Executive Team, behind Joel.
Joel has 92K in his network-wide flair, Jaydles has 62K.
@rene tricky question... well, yes, I also mean high rep users. Maybe "users with lots of activity that got influence in Stack Exchange, may it be internal or just by sheer activity." :)
@zaq you mean current team... Jeff probably got more?
4:36 PM
You think this rep gives us influence? Whohohahahaha hahaahaha hahahahahah ... oh boy ... staph it ...
@rene not rep, activity... and yes, by requesting changes that actually get done and taking part in important discussions, we have influence... though sometimes it might be minor. :)

Tweeting fixes everything.
5:56 PM
@zaq what are the "other reasons"?
Like rep < 3000
I see. I would think most people with less than 20000 will have difficulty getting elected anyways.
> Why we need a hotness sort: What's a good answer is subjective, but a strong objective signal is a new answer slowly rising among crufty 8 year old answers.
On the rare occasions that I check out baseball standings, I like that they show the record in the last 10 games, in addition to overall.
Maybe having the score in the last 365 days, and ability to sort by it, would resolve the issue.
That's a possible solution.
Or perhaps the period over which it had the last 10000 page views.
Or both, whichever is longer.
Or let users pick
Having a standard would allow a server-side sort. Letting users customize the sort parameters would probably necessitate a client-side sort.
Of course, unless we can make the economic argument, it's hard for me to see Stack Overflow implementing this pie-in-the-sky vaporware.

I'm just surprised it happened, because this is the first time I've noticed craziness like that. I've seen 2 or 3 upvotes close in time, but that's far enough apart that it could be random. But 18 in 15 minutes is some kind of a black swan.

We'll be spending 4 days to vote out 2 of the candidates... but also getting an idea of how much support the rest of them have, which is something. Although history shows the primary support can be very different from final-round support...
@zaq I forget, do people comment on the voting parts?
Comments are locked when the nomination period ends.
So if you want to clean up your own comments, this is your last chance.
7:53 PM
I don't think I said anything that I'm ashamed of
I had one comment on that page, deleted it now.
Not ashamed, I just don't like comments being locked forever.
Even the tactical ones I left are OK, if you ask me ...
It would be fun if 2 candidates drop their nomination in the last minute
They can also withdraw during primary voting, leaving it meaningless.
7:57 PM
I'm a little nervous.
I'm sure you'll be in top 10.
And so, we officially set the record for the smallest number of nominees (12), shattering the previous record of 18 set in 2012.
Next year, probably skip primary.
(I'm not counting the elections that predate the current /election system; those were weird.)

8:08 PM
restrained sheepish grin
Some stats on how primary correlates with the final outcome... (Note: I count "called up" folks the same as winners, since they actually won the election when the number of seats was adjusted).
Candidates #1 or #2 in Primary have always won (7/7)
#3 won 6/7 times (the only exception is OMGPonies in election 2)
##4-6 won 3/7 times
#7 won 2/7 times
#9 won 1/7 times, that was Jeremy Banks
(Past performance is no indication of future returns)
So, you will either get elected or make history.
Primaries aren't over.

In Praise of Moderators is frozen? What kind of evil moderator abuse is that?
To be brutally honest (which is the best kind of honesty, right), I was skeptical about @AaronHall's mod candidacy mostly because of interactions in the Tavern. Obviously, this isn't what most voters see.

Speaking of rep, I'm up to 500 on Stack Overflow! Hello Triage, my old friend.
Looks OK, Looks OK, Unsalvageable, Unsalvageable, Looks OK... I wouldn't call that "consensus".
Noun: consensus ‎(plural consensuses)
  1. A process of decision-making that seeks widespread agreement among group members.
  2. General agreement among the members of a given group or community, each of which exercises some discretion in decision-making and follow-up action.
  3. Average projected value, as in the finance term consensus forecast.
  4. consensus m ‎(uncountable)
  5. consensus
(5 more not shown…)
Adjective: cōnsēnsus m ‎(feminine cōnsēnsa, neuter cōnsēnsum); first/second declension
  1. (rare) agreed upon
So the plural is consensuses and non consensi... okay

@HizHa I don't recommend it.
But the downside of Triage is generating a bunch of fairly useless flags for CV queue.
The idea was that those questions would be swept under the rug, not shoved in someone else's face.

Thank you... ( When I was here last week, I got much more insulting & unpleasant responses.)

So no-one objects to my creating such a room (for chatting about abuse by SE moderators), I assume. -- if anyone has anything meaningful to say, pls do. ( not just [I don't recommend it.] )

Wasn't there an animated Gif of a bird feeding a cat and a dog ? (I can't find it now.) (Was it removed? If so, why?) -- What was that white stuff in the pan ?
I'm tired of misformatted posts, time for SmallAvatars++

Last week ... By far the most arrogant & insulting was zaq, so I assumed he was some kind of a super-moderator, or something.

But I just noticed the number 145 next to his name. Is he a newbie?
zaq is a member of this room, just like you or I. But I advise that you look back at what you were saying as well and try and figure out why that might not have been appreciated.
@hichris123 That’s you or me. runs!
me, myself and I
what else would you need?

Q: Which is correct, "you and I" or "you and me"?

grokusWhen the phrase is used as an object, why so many native speakers are saying "you and I" instead of "you and me"? I'm not a native speaker but I thought "you and me" is correct. Not sure if this falls into the same category, but "Just between you and me" sounds more natural than "Just between you...

@hichris123 I can’t tell if you’re arguing with me or admitting you overcorrected. :p
This seems to favor Alexis's point. You probably wouldn't write "is a member of this room, just like I".
@AlexisKing I don't even know. :P
"just like me" or "just like I am" would work.
