Bronzy at best; mostly tinny
What's worse, asking a question on SO or making a pull request to a widely used library?
Putting one's code up for ... inspection, either way.
FR: flag users as "rude/abusive" or "no longer needed".
Q: Flag abusive users

RSolbergI think the community does a great job policing questions/answers, etc. and the community has some good tools available to do this. Between flagging questions with some reasons behind it and editing posts, closing them, and deleting them, the only thing that seems to be missing to me is the abil...

12:13 AM
Migrate to sustainable living?
Also, morning!
eh, its not a great question
I've gotten my first non reversal, non tag, gold badge on meta \o/
No. It's not migration worthy. But that's where they should be asking.
Man, dude is lost
12:16 AM
I mean like can't find own rear end with a map and trained smurf lost.
Or he's just tripping.
@JourneymanGeek God badge?
Gold badge ;p
Crap. I thought I'd waited long enough .
got a great question badge for a gold one
@Catija oh, I have 8 reversals ;p
Wait... I thought it was supposed to show both questions if they're different.
12:23 AM
Oh, probably because you didn't see my message in here... :P
I think the closehammer takes precident
and I added both, cause I never get to play with that feature on SU ;p
Oh, I forgot about that feature!
But I also don't remember what's required for it... Hmmmm
Q: Gold tag-badge holders and moderators can now edit duplicate links

Shog9As of a few minutes ago, if you have a gold tag-badge for a tag associated with a question that's been closed as a duplicate, you can edit the duplicate links to replace, add, remove or re-arrange them: These changes are tracked in PostHistory to allow anyone to detect abuse, while the res...

Oh, Gold tag badge... sigh
I'm at 759 for discussion but only on 92 posts...
12:38 AM
same issue I had
and its pretty hard to get good post volume on meta ;p
Yeah. I mean... It's only 10-12 qpd.
Happy hour!
... morning ._.
@Catija and there's a few very consistent answerers
A: Problems rigging legs

Hotpockets26Found my issue. I forget to properly name my hidden bones.

Some people have weird issues
12:42 AM
all my bones are hidden
@CrazyIvan Well, walk cycles are hard.
are nails bones?
@JourneymanGeek But are they properly named?
I've never asked them
I would assume so.
12:45 AM
@CrazyIvan you're funny, bones...
... hide from badly attempted pun
I think you meant "You're humerus".
Signs of the season: (1) xkcd.com/988 (2) the library building (where I am currently) is open 24 hours/day now.

Reminds me of a certain canteen that played "The end of the world" in every exam period.
1:01 AM
@SmokeDetector naa
1:56 AM
half jokingly wondering if we could hand out closehammers at 30k on MSE ._.
So much off topic stuff today ugh
2:22 AM
@ShadowWizard do our friend, Ano, get edit-banned?
errr... my statement doesn't make sense since they still could suggest an edit, but I don't know much about "ban on edit suggestion"
3:13 AM
Just checking to see if I broke it
oh, ok
3:45 AM
New motivation to keep earning rep after 10K: looking at /tools?tab=delete and recalling each new 1K brings another vote.
In contrast, I don't find the /close tab nearly as interesting. It somehow doesn't scream "this must be closed or everything will fall apart" at me.
Oooh, party!
A trip down the memory lane of FRs about the top bar that no longer exists.
> doing my moral duty as a reviewer amidst the abundantly evident decay of personal responsibility and family values
@CrazyIvan Ended up deferred ED, so we'll see what happens.
3:55 AM
deferred early is an oxymoron
But regular deadlines will be coming up soon, right?
4:15 AM
@CrazyIvan whyt?
I was going to say whut? but I think that's even better
sd - k
one of the freshly status-completed posts
ahh ok
Look like shog's going through the queue like shit through a goose.
Considering it's already been edited... is there any guidance on changing Anna --> Adam?
4:24 AM
@CrazyIvan Yeah, so I'll be filling out those. But there's still a shot for my early school, although who knows.
@Catija errrrr
Might be a question for IPS, almost. I never quite worked out the etiquette of that.
I'd say leave it be cause he'd notice and probably suggest what to do ;p
Adam should be able to just do it with a script, no bumping... meta.stackexchange.com/…
Shog9 is my least favorite troll. — Adam Lear ♦ Oct 28 '13 at 21:13
4:28 AM
I guess if Adam'd wanted to do it, it would have been done already?
Guess so. Perhaps rewriting history isn't in the plan. In which case it's probably best to leave it be... ?
If it makes you feel any better, @Affable, I don't know Anna's real name either. — Shog9 ♦ Oct 28 '13 at 21:12
That answer is now wrong...
That page doesn't exist any more.
Has SO ever actually been written "Stack OverFlow"?
Hey Jeremy :D
4:34 AM
Yeah... :/ The dupe is wrong now, too... but I don't think there's a list any more.
As for the name, it can't be edited in comments anyway, and it appears in plenty of those. So it's not something users can even make a dent in. Although if I was already editing a post, I'd probably change it along with the rest.
Well, it says "In Anna Lear's post"... with a link to the post which says it's by "Adam Lear"... not that it's a big deal since people can change their usernames at any time, so it's not as if it doesn't happen regularly.
So I bumped a couple of posts with that /team stuff, to get rid of OverFlow and to shorten Tim's answer to what is still correct.
I saw. :D

@SmokeDetector naa-
lol, that looks like someone trying to promote his blog. At least a little
It's very marginal.
@AndrewT. as you said, that can't be since Ano did post that edit. No idea what's going on, but Ano if you read this: create an account. You can use new account, nobody will know who you are or who you were. We will still love you. :)
hehe, wrote that as reject reason, the only way to communicate with Ano for now. ;)
@JourneymanGeek well, Jeff is also obsolete, so...
SE changed a lot since his days

@ShadowWizard I don't think its particularly just Jeff
SE's gotten a lot bigger and you can't really have things like they were when it was 3. 5 or a dozen sites

I don't know enough to decide if that's right

Without Oded we just see more, I think it's always 6-8 every day
naw. today's been super bad

Q: Will CommonMark be adopted for SE?

ratchet freakAn official spec for CommonMark with reference implementation was released recently. Will these specs (with optional additions like MathJax for those sites that already have it) be adopted? There are some places where the implementation deviates, example 371 [link](foo(and(bar))) amongst others...

@SmokeDetector yes it's a spam, but the site will be closed on 11 Dec. If you survive, you'll survive only for a while for eternity as data dump...
startups is one of those sites that seems like a natural fit, yet keeps failing
Tempted to post a foulmouthed rant about SEO folks as a comment.
I mean, at worst I get suspended, right? ;p

Josh HansenFirst, a confession: no, I didn't do the backups I should have. Second, the situation: I have a Dell XPS 9550 with a solid state disk running Fedora 25. I was working on a file and tried to save it when I was told I was trying to save to a read-only filesystem. Turns out my filesystem is read...

1:42 PM
Chat and Meta becoming ghost towns is not particularly problematic. We have quite a few sites on the network that get very little to no consistent activity on either of those platforms but are still able to successfully run. The major problem here is the lack of community moderation, and a build-up of very low quality content and even spam on the main site. Lack of Meta participation only reinforces the conclusion that the site is lacking the necessary interest to moderate and maintain. — animuson ♦ Dec 4 at 15:44
> and even spam on the main site
did Smokey miss that???
or just another different type of "legit spam"?
2:00 PM
don't know. You might run a query in MS to see spam deletition times for startups.se

looks... too few...

@rene you could try fire. Then you;d be in pain, properly burnt out, lazy and temporarily warm...
@JohnDvorak sssttt
@JourneymanGeek I'll put that on my todo list
hmm... after reconsideration, I'd suspect "nicael" as "Ano". I'd be certain that he's not "normal human"
@rene It wants a passphrase from me
3:12 PM
@JohnDvorak use the cookies we have here
@rene now I'm wasting my time trying to guess the passphrase...
@AndrewT. Maybe its Jeff ;p
I considered that ^ yes ....
The VPN bit seems off tho
and Jeff has no real reason to hide
3:14 PM
It could be... anyway, has "Ano" made a wrong edit suggestion due to a system change after Jeff left?
> It either never existed or has already been viewed.
@AndrewT. I set to last only 5 minutes
I suspect I have failed the mind-reading test then

@AdamLear I think this is status-by-design given your answer here. Can you check if my answer covers all bases: meta.stackexchange.com/a/304228 ?
1 hour later…
6:49 PM
Heh, found another message from @Ano here: meta.stackexchange.com/review/suggested-edits/55244 /cc @rene @AndrewT. ;)
@Ano blame the new top bar for the delay, the review icon is totally useless, and never showing when there are pending reviews.
So these days I review very rarely, and probably others too. Too bad SE team just ignore this, and when you'll reveal yourself come here and join the Fight For a Better Top Bar! :D
Also, my memory these days isn't so good (I'm old!) so I don't remember who deleted their accounts almost 5 years ago... :/
@ShadowWizard CrazyIvan had a list before, let me find it
Crazy who?
When we don't ping him, better use Normal Human or just Norm. ;)
Or maybe some older and cooler name, e.g. soup or Bookend
Lately he began to choose... not so cool names. :/
But it's all good. ;)
7:06 PM
@ShadowWizard It's just you getting old and grumpy.
> I'm a top-50 deleted MSE user who deleted my account in 2013; see if you can identify me before the big reveal!
I posted this in October, the query returned exactly top 50 users. Which strongly suggests Ano reads the Tavern, at least occasionally.
Come to think of it, I deleted some user profiles in 2013... Maybe I am Ano and don't know it, Fight Club-style.
7:20 PM
So we have four suspects:
user133440 = hamlin11 / BrianWebster
user213634 = AndersUP
user215114 = gparyani
user226423 = Damien
My guess is that Ano is Damien, based on the fact that the user was still interested enough in SE to ask how long deletion takes.
Q: how long does it usually take to delete my Area51 account and private beta account

user226423I am in need of deleting my Area51 account, I have read a similar post about this here, but my situation is slightly different - I have used it and are member of a private beta (Space Exploration). I have sent in an email request and updated my profiles for those pages to say "please delete me",...

@CrazyIvan I thought it could be Mark Trapp although his location is off.
We have our bets, now we wait ;D

A: Bold Greek letters are not as bold as Roman letters


> Following a tradition of American cities named "Paris", the city commissioned a 65-foot (20 m) replica of the Eiffel Tower in 1993 and installed it on site of the Love Civic Center, southeast of the town square. In 1998, presumably as a response to the 1993 construction of a 60-foot (18 m) tower in Paris, Tennessee, the city placed a giant red cowboy hat atop its tower. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris,_Texas
Some things are smaller in Texas.
