Well, it's different for sites that were not in beta for a long period of time.
 
user315433
When moderation-active users quickly become mods, they can't get that badge.
 
user315433
Martin on Chemistry, Chris on Biology, and Keelan on Philosophy are examples of first-marshal -> mod.
 
user315433
Actually, Biology still has only two Marshals, and both are mods.
 
user315433
Paulster2 on Mechanics...
 
user315433
The only site where I am the first Marshal is Arduino but I somehow don't see myself moderating it...
 
12:35 AM
yup
I probably have mine cause I missed an election due to exams
I nearly missed a second cause I was in india at the time, my granma had broken her hip, and my original nomination was a placeholder ;p

@Jason let's see if your scraper and skills got some real use.... can you find periods of inactivity for users? I posted in the Den almost every day from the very beginning, but think I had like two whole weeks without posting at all. Might be one week, but surely more than 5 days. Can you find this? If anything, that will be a nice challenge for you.... ;)
 
Man, people are really quiet today. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/295068/… needs closevotes ;p
ah, never mind, nuked.
 
@JourneymanGeek by The Shog himself! :D
 
yup ;p
 
7:35 AM
@SmokeDetector K
Good noon peoples
 
Afternoon...
 
Whatever, semantics nazi
RPG election attracted more drama than your average election.
Shame on you, super users
 
@M.A.R. You were complaining about that
lol
 
Your election was so quiet, it even didn't wake up little birdies for spring
 
yup
On one hand, it shows a certain maturity. On the other, it was a little boring.
 
7:43 AM
A site that's merely the size of SU's fingernail attracted more election drama than SU.
This is an indication of a problem.
You should increase the quality of your trolls
Try pissing off more sock-puppets
 
Maybe get recycle to stand for elections...
that would be fun
(more seriously, we have the opposite problem. We have a ton of mod caliber people who're unlikely to stand)
Anyway, our drama is a bit more spread out
Not just for election period.
 
You get high quality spam though
Hard to detect
 
Really?
Cause I'm pretty certain between spamram and smokey, I hardly see any spam now
 
Well, the answers mostly. Not the questions
 
Still hardly see em ;p

Q: SevenSidedDie - problem with your moderation!

user33129Okay, I have found your Meta site and as directed am writing directly to you concerning the question you put on hold. I am VERY displeased with your interference with my question and seem to think you just have some personal issue with me and completely unbeknownst to me. You said we could talk ...

@JourneymanGeek - problem with your moderation!
 
Oh, I've had that sort of thing on meta before ;p
 
Pic or it didn't happen
 
I'm also certain I've had harrymc mad at me a fair bit

A: When should a moderator not use his super-powers?

Journeyman GeekI'm the moderator who did it. It feels like the fair, and best course of action would be to treat these answers as I would any other answer from a user who I feel is inexperienced of the ways of the site. These answers don't exactly reflect the sort of quality one expects, and in this specific c...

at the end of the day though, I try to act, with good intentions towards what I think is best for the site as a whole ;)
 
@JourneymanGeek Hah, the [bounty] tag is appropriate
 
I quite literally did not notice he missed his bounty by a day
 
7:54 AM
@JourneymanGeek YOU CAN'T FOOL ME DOGGY
We all know what you're here for
 
@M.A.R. to eat your homework and steal your socks?
This is a face you can trust
 
@JourneymanGeek since we all know it, I won't tell
 
lol
go ahead, tell me ;p
 
@M.A.R. popcorn, of course.
stealing popcorn from @Bart
 
@JourneymanGeek That's the point of the plot. It shouldn't be revealed
 
7:57 AM
@ShadowWizard or cheese. I like cheese. The good stuff ... ;p
 
Like the the stuff in that bag in Pulp Fiction
 
@JourneymanGeek cheese is too cheesy
 
ooh, the glowy box?
 
@M.A.R. what bag? Z's bag?
 
Oh, it was a suitcase
It was a bag in another film
 
7:58 AM
It contained a McGuffin.
 
Yeah
 
McWhat?
 
@ShadowWizard since I don't completely hate you, I will not link you to TVthropes...
In fiction, a MacGuffin (sometimes McGuffin or maguffin) is a plot device in the form of some goal, desired object, or other motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation. The specific nature of a MacGuffin is typically unimportant to the overall plot. The most common type of MacGuffin is a person, place, or thing (such as money or an object of value). Other more abstract types include victory, glory, survival, power, love, or some unexplained driving force. The MacGuffin technique is common in films, especially thrillers. Usually the MacGuffin is the central...
@M.A.R. why do you think I'm here? ;p
 
@JourneymanGeek lol!

Q: What has the greatest chance of being in Marcellus Wallace's briefcase?

benhowdle89In Pulp Fiction, there is a briefcase which has contents that are kept very secret. What item is most likely to be in the briefcase?

Who is more cute? ^
 
The sofa
 
8:10 AM
@M.A.R. which?
 
The one which isn't colored blue
 
I'm sure @Bart will say the glasses are more cute
 
I'm sure @Bart will say the cutes are more glasses
 
I'm sure @Bart will smite us both for pinging him
 
Looking at the starwalll
now I wonder why Nick needs a bigass fan
(I've seen a few at metro stations. They are in fact bigass fans, as opposed to fans of big large donkeys)
 
8:25 AM
@JourneymanGeek is bigass considered swear word?
finger hovering over flag button
 
@ShadowWizard ehhh. Could I get a pass here?
 
Its literally the brand name
 
oddly I see no https
 
8:26 AM
Well, "ass" itself actually got totally innocent meaning, a donkey.... it's bad people who misused that word for slang who ruined it. :P
Bad, bad people.
 
I think in this case though the ambiguity is intentional
 
It becomes flagable if you say You have a bigass
 
See you in 30 minutes ...
 
resisting temptation
Quick way to get chat banned: tell that to Shog. :D
 
8:28 AM
Tavern on the Temptation
 
Or to rage quit...
 
naw
I never rage quit
 
@Telkitty used to do that a lot when she was.... younger.
But she always came back....
 
@ShadowWizard I think she is still in the middle of it ...
 
@Gerry also deleted tons of accounts, though not out of rage. Reason remains a mystery to this day.
@rene middle of being young? ;)

Q: This sites methode of doing it's rating is so hostile should i bother to stay with it?

GLANTHThis sites methode of doing it's ratins is so hostile shoild i bother to stay with it? Down-grading for minor spelling,grammer errors.These questions and answers that are posted here are first drafts.A author would consider them first drafts!.And a author does at least one draft before the final ...

 
.... twitch
 
@M.A.R. that's a Dutch user I guess
 
ChooChoo.Theuser's methode of not using any space makes it look like a train.I like it.
@rene Because of ''methode''?
It reminds me of ''cathode''
 
@M.A.R. yes ... though their profile claims something else
 
8:36 AM
Tempted to answer "No"
 
@rene Well, it seems Asians make all sort of weird spelling mistakes
 
Why dig old drama? There is brand new drama there.
 
@M.A.R. oi ;p
 
@ShadowWizard There is?
 
@M.A.R. ...
 
8:37 AM
Let's make our drama
 
No, I mean I know there is
 
no popcorn for @M.A.R.
 
But there isn't an enjoyable meta post
Or maybe there is
JUST LINK IT ALREADY
 
@M.A.R. probably they're being deleted before we can see them
 
post "Users are digging old controversial meta posts on chat to make fun of it" on MSE
 
8:39 AM
@M.A.R. everybody makes mistakes, specially if you consider that English originated from that island near mainland Europe. Now see how the Americans ruined that...
 
@Elephant You can't touch me
I am above everything
 
touching @M.A.R.
 
Which could mean I'm below everything if it's a sphere
Oh boy
 
boy Oh
 
It occurred to me that maybe West is just far too East
 
8:41 AM
West is East Overflow
 
And North is just far too south
 
East is West Overflow
 
Wow, life makes so much more sense now

@Mithrandir you eat in BBB? ^
 
I need 3k rep more on android.se to get mod-tools, but I already lost interest in finding interesting questions... hhh....
 
lol
I know the feeling
 
@Elephant Welcome to my world
 
I need to try to hit 3k on AU so people would stop bugging me about it ;p
and I'd like to hit 10K on SF... just cause.
 
9:04 AM
@ShadowWizard nah
 
hm. that guy.
 
big chance q-banned
 
yeah ...
 
@rene Thanks for free halpful flag
 
9:09 AM
yw, you need those helpful flags, right? Specially on MSO ..
 
user202362
fixed part of lawn mower problem
 
user202362
stuck somewhere else
 
that's just like programming
 
I don't get the logic there. Especially for a user with some experience with "the way we do things"
 
@JourneymanGeek either desperate or simply refusal to accept that there are rules.
 
9:19 AM
@rene and the realisation that people would close it
 
Also, I realised... That guy is the worst thing I can say about anyone on chat ;p
 
@M.A.R. I dunno ....
 
@JourneymanGeek Flagging.
Please revisit Be Nice
 
@M.A.R. THAT GUYYYYYYY! HE BE FLAGGIN!

@JourneymanGeek if you feel for it, any (job) advice for this
 
@rene I'm having trouble finding work here
Would not hurt to apply tho ;p
Its a good market for coders
 
OK, feel free to let them know.
 
user202362
I wonder ... how many here have fixed a lawn mower before?
 
Definitely not me, 'coz we don't have lawn here...
 
11:02 AM
@rene eh, its not very useful advice ;p
 
11:23 AM
Someone can help me finding text like an eyebrow?
I have image of it but I want in text to copy

@JasonC that was better than the joke I was going to make.
 
Don't hold back. We won't judge.
 
"Cock, clock. Small difference"
 
It's almost 10 o'cluck.
@JourneymanGeek That joke sucks clock.
 
1:41 PM
Yeah, it was quite fowl.
 
That's OK, you were clearly winging it.
GOD HELP US
This room is for the birds.

I was actually looking for something you could uload an image to..
 
@JasonC and cats :3
Is there any way to know at what time I got upvote? (Without using chrome web extensions)
@JourneymanGeek thanks but there wasn't that text I was looking for.
 
2:03 PM
@Fawad Sort of. You can go to your profile page → Reputation tab → click "by time"
You can also visit the post timeline although votes are rounded to the nearest day, @Fawad
E.g. stackoverflow.com/posts/43134776/timeline, substituting the number for the question/answer ID.
 
@JasonC it works
 
2:17 PM
In review audit results (e.g. stackoverflow.com/review/first-posts/15867535) what's the difference between "No Action Needed" and "Reviewed"?
Is "Reviewed" if you vote on it or something then click "I'm Done"?
 
2:30 PM
errrrr
I have no idea ;p
and it dosen't seem to be on meta?
I do think reviewed would indicate some action being taken tho
 
user202362
I am reading this useless questions list and I think about you, let's try a few questions on you, so ...
 
user202362
If you had a sock stuffed in your mouth, do you think you could get it out without using your hands or feet? @gerry
 
user202362
and
 
user202362
@Gerry Would you rather be a crouching cat or a hidden snake?
 
@JasonC yes, that is it. There is no difference between that text on normal reviews or audits.
 
2:44 PM
Oh word
@Telkitty I'd rather be a catsnake.
 
You can quickly find audits with my userscript meta.stackexchange.com/questions/248338/… it shows audits by adding an A in the outcome column
 
i thought it was crouching tiger or hidden dragon?
but probably a new sequel is fine too...
 
user202362
also @gerry if would you rather choose to be locked in the same room as Jason for 3 days or forced to consume 3kg cookies + 3kg chips and nothing else in 3 days
 
@Elephant I guess Crouching Cat, Hidden Snake is the public domain knock-off version.
You know, huge cult following.
 
user202362
I am the only one who gerry pretends to ignore in this room
 
2:48 PM
@Telkitty I hope you are not surprised. :P
 
user202362
I am more surprised at the fact that I wasn't able to fix the lawn mower today
 
3:05 PM
huh...
How do I view all questions sorted by top voted on SO? I'm using the new nav.
Am I stupid?
 
probably
 
user202362
depends ... who are you comparing yourself to
 
dosen't the voted tag do it automatically?
 
What's the voted tag?
 
ooh
ok
try the "where's my tabs" link
 
3:08 PM
ditch the "new nav" it's dead and buggy.
 
Oh i have that link disabled but i found it, under "new tab" i can add a tab then switch the sort order to "votes"
@ShadowWizard It doesn't seem buggy to me, I really like it.
 
@JasonC good for you.... but if you find a bug, don't expect any fix, the one developer who worked on that project no longer works for Stack Exchange.
 
Good for your mom.
 
(and of course they never bothered to assign any other developer, same way they don't hire anyone to work on the android app)
@JasonC I'll tell her you told that! ;)
 
Well they have Kasra, although I'm presuming he still hasn't recovered from his grandmother's tragic flight non-delay.
 
3:13 PM
@JasonC he didn't work long time before the grandmother ordeal as far as I remember. I don't blame/judge him, it's really nice and heroic of SE to keep hiring him and paying him, but as a user of the app I'm sad they chose to sacrifice the app for this.
 
heh. Despite feeling for the guy, Id dump the app if not for notifications
(I can't do mod stuff from it, and open from browser is broken)
 
I both blame him and mercilessly judge him.

Q: Not receiving any notifications on the Android app

Matt SamuelSo this has been going on for about a week. I'm not receiving notifications of comments directed at me on the Android app. Sometimes the red square over the notification counter does appear on the app, sometimes it doesn't, but I never receive a system notification, so it doesn't make my phone vi...

I won't be surprised a bit if they stop working for everyone soon. (and of course nobody in SE cares.)
 
@ShadowWizard if that breaks, I'm uninstalling it.
Then I have other issues...
 
@JourneymanGeek sure, me too.
 
3:15 PM
lol. I'd happily run something that just takes my notifications and passes it on to something else
I've got a pretty decent homebrew notification setup off matrix now.
 
@JourneymanGeek can be done via plain API, pretty sure there are 3rd party apps doing that.
 
@ShadowWizard I can't really code my way out of a paper bag ;p

Q: Stack Exchange notification app for Windows 10 (integration with Action Center)

Andrew T.Is there a Stack Exchange notification app (particularly, the inbox) for Windows 10 that has integration with Action Center? There are notification apps for Windows 7 that I am currently using, but I'd prefer if they don't take space on the taskbar.

yeah, that probably would be nice
