@Quill it uses their internal API, not public API. The internal API has more privileges like posting Q&A/comment and flagging, which probably the reason why they haven't opened-source it.
in iOS and Android Apps, May 16 at 17:23, by Kasra Rahjerdi
@ShadowWizard Brian is doing doing iOS revamps right now (the designer that designed our Android and iOS apps is also back helping us on a new project!) -- I was working on a specific featureset for the Android app that'll be announced in a few weeks (would talk about it if I could)
but no news after that.
no beta testers for Android?
also can't you just watch the packets and trace back the API method links?
I did that at work on my first day and found a security issue :D
@Quill well, I did that in the end...
the iOS one gets updated like once a week
12:39 AM
12:50 AM
@meatball One can post and flag from the public API 2.2 as well.
I'm an idiot -_-
I assume the app uses some undocumented capabilities around quota levels or authorization or "hot questions" network-wide feed.
both just open a WebView with an oauth thing
Mostly registration and that.
I wonder what the new project is.

@John How not?
 !!/trick Smokey
can't we not spam Smokey commands please?
even the unicorn needs his sleep
Sorry master
@Quill Bot = sleepy? Nah!
!!/got offensive stuff to report?
oops I almost upvoted spam...
2:13 AM
@hichris123 That's why you read posts before upvoting them!
I was trying to click to the homepage and I hit the upvote arrow... :P
I hope you instantly unupvoted it!
I did, but...
(not from me)
From me. Just kidding
Anyone other than hichris123 (and me) around?
I didn't
I reported it as spam
But Smokey already indicated that it's soup's fault so I don't know why it's still an issue :P
2:21 AM
@John nope
@hichris123 Perhaps a sockpuppet upvoted it?
@Quill are you sure?
chill out, man
!!/blame everyone in the world (exept me)
@John It's Quill's fault.
That would've been a perfect time for Smokey to blame the invoker
2:25 AM
@SmokeDetector are you sure Quill has the blame? Or do I for blaming everybody?
I wanna see if Smokey will dare to blame me
Its random
!!/blame someone???
@John It's John's fault.
How did I know
2:28 AM
!!/blame SmokeDetector for blaming me
@John It's soup's fault.
21 mins ago, by Quill
can't we not spam Smokey commands please?
I mean !!/nope
Anyway, if Smokey == tired {return true}; else {return false}
output: false
@Quill Ok fine, I'll stop giving Smokey commands 'cause you're tired of it, unlike Smokey who wants more
much more
2:44 AM
Why do I feel like this is complete trolling... meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/326339/… (this is the person who posted the auto downvote script)

Why do I keep somehow thinking that the Arduino stack exchange is the Android stack exchange?

@hichris123 I believe OP had some history on SO before.

You and me got a whole lot of history (oh)

@meatball Not as good as DevDoodle, obviously.

inb4 @Telkitty realizes the spammer is her best friend.
Just found a spam in disguise in the Late Answers queue.
I flagged it, but noted that somebody had upvoted it.
Wondering if I should add a mod attention flag, so SE can investigate who upvoted it?
just fork Smokey's filters ;-)
@S.L.Barth Nah.
@TIPS Hm yes, I guess SE already looks at spams that are upvoted.
There's a good chance that the upvoter has misunderstood.
For varying definitions of misunderstanding
12:05 PM
Yeah, as in "Anything goes if it gives me a reviewer badge!!!" understanding :-S
@S.L.Barth Aaand we're done here. \o/
I wanted to leave a comment there with an indication that this is copy-pasta with spam link, but it got deleted by then...
@S.L.Barth Yes, you are a privileged user.

here is a gibberish answer
@John Yes, but that post is already removed.
I watched too many horror videos on youtube, nowadays when I open youtube, all recommendations are horrors :p
2:03 PM
after a while, horrors are not scary anymore ... they are hilarious >_<
like videos about dumb people
people in horror movies generally have IQs 20 points below the general population :p
@Telkitty *200
negative IQ? sweet ...
2:30 PM
Maybe horror movies are telling people a point: that all dumb people deserve to die in stupid ways ~_~
@Telkitty most of horror movies aren't that horror...
On the other hand, there were 2 (horror?) games that scared me for 3 days...
@meatball angry birds, right? I mean, why are you all angry? Why the aggression? Horrible game.
Currently I am watching one in which if you close the door ghosts wouldn't be able to come into your apartment
really? doors work on ghosts?
they work on vampires but only if you legally own the house.
is ghosts really a stretch?
2:42 PM
same with ghosts in elevator thing - I mean, ghosts can't get through walls?
I mean ... ghosts are probably similar to light: energy without mass, that is to say, if ghosts indeed exist
When and where is the next MSE Town Hall?

But I'm unbanned on the 22nd

I think I've known y'all for a year now
Ah, you too, soon, will see the insignificance of a mere year's time in the Tavern. After a few more comings of the duck, you'll adjust to the natural rhythm and continuation of Tavern life.
And my flagging rates will zoom back to rocket speeds

I flagged for mod attention already.
but we can try.
someone also edited the answer into the question.

Ah, fast mod flag handling. :)
@nicael no :(
Have you clicked it recently or just earned much rep since?

@nicael earned much rep. Think it was about 30k loss

yesterday, by Quill
I had planned to do work this evening, but instead I spent two hours building houses of cards...

@Quill Maybe you should be working on those then. :P
I wonder whether there's a site to ask about the architecture of card houses
Not the card houses, your time management skills. >.<

A colleague of mine showed up early in the morning for the time management training. (Un)fortunately it was scheduled for the evening.

That's... a mouthful.
> You may be the ideal candidate for our team if:

You have a positive and optimistic personality. Setbacks motivate you to work harder.
You like to work with a wide array of technology rather than specialize in one particular area.
You like to work without a map or guide. You’d prefer to be thrown in the deep end and solve complex problems for yourself rather than have your hand held.
You adapt to change well, and aren’t particularly phased by course changes.
You understand and enjoy coding, but also know or have an interest in learning the importance of Security.
@hichris123 it is probably the HR departement: Our job ad need to stand out, let's do its title in ALL CAPS. That is great idea! Nobody does that ....
tl;dr: "We're not going to help you, you're going to be yelled at a lot, and the requirements change daily"
@rene Maybe we need an all caps check for Careers...
@hichris123 learning about the importance of security, at least they have their priorities right ... let's hope it doesn't stay at learning alone

> Hi Quill
Thanks for letting us know. We’ve removed the listing from Stack Overflow, since it wasn’t for a job, but an event.
Best regards
that was fast
Yay. I flagged it, but it was really slow and then told me the listing was already flagged.
And then it told me my flag was successfully submitted.
that's intense. Imagine the residential sustainable energy anarchy that'll ensue
10:03 PM
I guess downvoting is the best you can do for a question that takes one second to find on Google: How to replace the '\\' in a directory with '/'?
Hilariously, no SO questions to dupe to. I guess it's just too easy.
So what are we going to be happy about in our happy hour?
Not having @Quill around? ;)
Happy happy joy joy!
