Ish? Your either lurking or your not, I don't see an in-between.
 
multitasking not a thing, then?
 
When single-tasking, you always do the one task better then the multiple tasks when multi-tasking.
 
you can't always afford the luxury of doing a single thing at once
 
@John I mean I'm here but I'm doing stuff elsewhere - so if you have a question, skip the foreplay

Q: Are we really all adults here?

200_success"We are all adults here" seems to be a clickbait added to titles of hygiene questions. One such question was asked in 2011, another was asked in 2013, and starting in May 2016 it seems to have started to become a meme. I'm not the only one to have noticed this trend: 28⇧  Do we need an al...

cake and meatball is strange combo
 
I hate the double standard that exists. If a girl sleeps with lots of guys, she's a slut, but if I do it, it makes me hyper-gay

HTTPS Everywhere is a free and open source web browser extension for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera, a collaboration by The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). It automatically makes websites use the more secure HTTPS connection instead of HTTP, if they support it. == Development == HTTPS Everywhere was inspired by Google's increased use of HTTPS, and is designed to make HTTPS automatically used whenever possible. The code in part is based on NoScript's HTTP Strict Transport Security implementation, but HTTPS Everywhere is intended to be simpler to use than NoScript...

@Quill If adult means 2+ years, then sure...
 
@bjb568isnotapebble then pls write that into your answer
I feel like being a moderator has correlated to an increase in the amount of pings I receive, but I'm starting to believe it truly correlates with how bothersome I am in chat rooms <_<

Brings me back to my 4th grade days, where we were learning how to write a good essay. Previously, we had a green intro (a broad sentence before, a broad paragraph by then), yellow intermediates (description sentences before, body paragraph intros then), and red "supporting details (new for the multiparagraph form). We were introducing the blue "attention grabber with transition" part, which was tacked on at the beginning and had really nothing to do with the main point, but led into the green…
…proper introduction. I feel like my edit is kinda like the blue thing, tacked on in front.
Anyway, soon after, I dropped out of 4th grade 'cause it was boring.

Q: Moderator Flag Annotation

AJ HendersonFlags are a great system for addressing issues in content, however sometimes the solution to a flag is not cut and dry. They may require discussion with other moderators or time to gather input from the community before a proper decision can be reached on the flag. Currently, chat is available f...

so the conversation came up in CR chat earlier about the "what brought you here" thread... which reminded me about the SE-related blog posts I shelved
in some sense, there's an ego that accompanies writing such blog posts... ego or experience, neither of which I have
and writing a "my story on X" post feels dramatic and annoying, especially when the end is "low rep pro tem on the second slowest site on Stack Exchange"
 
user202362
2:17 PM
@Quill I tried to read but it was too boring.
 
user311528
@hichris123 Yeah.
 
user311528
But's it's fun.
 
being a mod is cool though, the TL conversations are pretty cool (and technical), you'd like it @soup
 
And that attitude is why you need to chill out. You must be tons of fun at parties. — AerisFang 40 secs ago
 
2:24 PM
Haha, what an ass, telling somebody how much fun they are at a party will also totally change whether a moderation action will be taken.
 
user202362
@Quill you would make a good mod
 
@Telkitty I am
 
user202362
Oo ... makes sense, but still I stand correct
 
user315433
Network-wide, who is the mod with the lowest reputation on their site?
 
2:28 PM
@bjb568isnotapebble oddly enough, I just had someone on a totally unrelated site tell me that exact same thing.
aren't those all pro-tem mods though?
 
yeah
 
that kinds doesn't count :)
 
user315433
I'm inclined to count pro-tem, but exclude CS50 which has a 1-rep mod.
 
@KutuluMike It's a common phrase. I guess you say it in place of an argument.
 
> for students of Harvard University's CS50
 
2:32 PM
@Quill How technical?
 
@ShadowWizard No, we're not going to be putting any further development resources into the edX sites. They're just not really part of the Stack Exchange network of sites. — Robert Cartaino ♦ Mar 19 '15 at 14:05
... "not really part of the Stack Exchange network of sites"
 
@bjb568isnotapebble oh god, the top google results are Reddit threads of people complaining about people using that phrase, to which, people reply that phrase

can (will) CMs or devs move posts from one account to another?
 
They can, but there has to be some really good reason...

we have a user on M&TV who's sister has posted some answers under her account. her sister now been convinced to open her own account.
i was just curious if she could 'claim' those other answers

@KutuluMike possible? Sure. Likely? Who knows. They can both use the "contact" form and ask that it be sorted out.
 
@hichris123 Shog moved bunch of deleted messages into there. Wondering why.
 
@ShadowWizard bot abuse
 
I didn't want them. Duh.

@Shog9 but they were all already deleted...
 
I also glared angrily at them. Can't be too careful.
 
4:47 PM
Wait.. Isn't it the same user who spammed his answer in all chat rooms?
 
Surprisingly, I agree with @bjb568isnotapebble for once... the "all adults here" (meta.travel.stackexchange.com/questions/3745/…) is just noise. It's not offensive though, it's just useless.
 
@meatball Smokey?
 
Uniktty Return Time: 21 Hours
 
@hichris123 so why not let it be, as per-site humor?
 
Although, if you're trying to search for this on Google, who's seriously going to put into Google "we're all adults here"? At best, this is useless fluff -- not exactly something to be all outraged over though. — hichris123 8 secs ago
 
4:54 PM
@ShadowWizard as usual, yes. Dunno why he is so fixated with Smokey, but can be expected, like when bjbot was tested to the extreme active.
@ShadowWizard I've never seen per-site humor used on main site anywhere else. I can tolerate if it's used in chat/meta, but main site?
 
@meatball well, each site and its own culture and rules. I'd say better leave it for the site active users to decide among themselves and enjoy the show. :)
!!/abuse
@Smokey be strong don't let people abuse you!
 
I suddenly remember a blue (or was it yellow?) car joke question on [MV.SE] that got into HNQ... which I commented, and their high-rep users disagree with me. The question got deleted though in the end...

It took me too long to realize I was trying to find the Tavern on chat.SE instead of chat.Meta.SE
 
there isn't a Tavern on SE Chat
 
That's... exactly my point.
I was looking on Chat.SE, but I didn't realize that for an embarrassingly long time.
 
there's also a Tavern on SO chat, but I thought that one was dead
 
I haven't checked
 
9:55 PM
@QPaysTaxes agree, all those different chat domains are super confusing for those not aware of them... and sometimes even for those who are aware.
 
@QPaysTaxes There is a search function you know... :) (also, Google)
 
@hichris123 I used the search function, and I couldn't figure out why it wasn't returning anything
Then I Googled, and when I got in here, I saw the domain and facepalmed
 
@Quill dead indeed.

@hichris123 search is per domain, no global search
 
@ShadowWizard but that's okay, this Tavern is great!
 
Anyway, I was told that for a request I had, I needed to ask Shog about it, so...
 
9:59 PM
@Quill yup, and will never be frozen being the official room... ;)
 
@Shog9 Is there any way I could get a dump of all (or even just a lot of recent) chat messages removed for being rude/offensive?
 
Oh hey, bitbucket are putting a "rainbow pride" effect over their logo
 
Ideally also with the number of flags they accumulated and the time they were posted
 
@Quill huh, brave!
 
@Quill I'm currently wearing a rainbow pride shirt
 
10:00 PM
@QPaysTaxes did some specific event occur? it's hard to keep track of these things when they're overseas
 
@ShadowWizard Right, but if you search "Tavern" and nothing comes up... it must not be there. :P

@QPaysTaxes oh, right :(

maybe we should reopen the "Can SO become Love Overflow again" question ;-)
 
@Quill nah, don't think that will happen

Unless some sort of official memorial day is established
 
@hichris123 somebody tried to reopen it?

@QPaysTaxes sorry, I replied straight away but my connection is borked at work ;-;
 
@Quill I know your pain
I'm in an airport
 
It's kinda weird, like on one hand, the post limit on CR is pretty big, but you're less likely to get good reviews, and breaking them up can be off-topic is the dependencies are too linked together
 
Hm, good point
Then again I see very short snippets on CR every now and then so who knows

@Quill Now that would be a good use of a chatbot, posting occasionally to keep the historic room #5 alive...'
 
@QPaysTaxes unlikely
Those frequently contain insults directed at specific people, and anonymizing them is difficult if not impossible
I know this because I've tried doing it before, and it was a headache.
 
@Shog9 Drat. I was hoping I could train a chatbot/script/whatever to be the most offensive bot on Stack Exchange see which rooms tolerate the most rude behavior
 
Even when everything looks safe, there's still a chance you'll miss something that - for folks who know the context - is incredibly personal and not something they'd want in public in any form.
 
@Shog9 Replacing anything matching @\S+ with [Someone] wouldn't be enough?
...No, wait, people might not ping the people they're mad at.
 
right

@Shog9 So likely meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/326494/… will fall to the same fate?
 
@Shog9 Well I wouldn't be sharing the data. It'd just be a corpus of data to train a bot on, and as such would stay on my computer
 
Or you get stuff like, "That jackass from Perth" that's still plenty inflammatory for those in the know.
 
@Shog9 That's not a polite way to refer to David Cameron.
(is he actually from Perth? I'm not totally sure)
 
@hichris123 comments are a little bit different, but... it'd be difficult
 
Yeah, kinda guessed that.

@bluefeet & I gotta find some time to build a dataset & argue about it a bit ;-P
 
I setup a logger for SO comments a while ago. There was some... pretty offensive, pretty personal stuff out there.
 
I've never seen anything more personal than ad hominem attacks like "stop being an idiot" and "I don't need your input Mr. Idiot"
 
@Shog9 Maybe meta.stackexchange.com/questions/228043/… would be easier? ;)

@QPaysTaxes You could modify Quill's bot to log flagged chat messages; after a while there'd be something to look at (later filtering on those that were deleted). But somehow I don't believe in automatic recognition of what's offensive...

@hichris123 yeah
 
That's not to say it never happens, just that I haven't happened to see it
 
missed it, didn't I?
oh it's tomorrow...
 
yup. The tl;dr is, "moar flags"
 
scheduling fail

aw shoot. I have something at 1000 -.-
 
Anyway, I gotta get on a plane. Bye!

I know new users get a reminder about accepting answers when they upvote them. Naturally, this doesn't help when they are under 15 rep. FR: also show the reminder when they leave a comment with \bthanks?\b in it.
 
user315433
If I had 15 rep for each "That works, thanks" comment...
