SE obviously doesn't care. If they did, they would have fixed my obscure bug report from 2012.

throwing bug report on @M.A.R. before going

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Pretty sure that's a joke.

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog lol he's trolling, he wasn't even around in 2012

12:03 AM
What can I say. I am very sophisticated

Yeah... he joined the network in 2014

@Catija But you just said it's difficult for you to get jokes!

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog she's been exposed to MAR for a couple of years now

I have an obscure bug report from 2013, which escaped the Roomba due to a special exemption

12:05 AM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog It is... but I also know that MAR is young and it's unlikely he would have been here that long ago... it's more of a logical guess that it's a lie rather than actually knowing it's a joke.

I do have obscure bug reports though

@Catija Under a different account, like me?

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog @M.A.R. how old are you now?

Also I have a (real) obscure bug report from 2013. So it seemed real to me.

@Catija 19.07

12:06 AM
Eh. I fixed a bug a couple days back that existed since 2014 but was reported (AFAIK) only recently. Time is an illusion.

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog there are a lot of obscure unsolved bug reports from 2012 for sure

On that note, I'm also heading out. Have a great weekend, y'all.

Like the fact that custom-flagging "not an answer" can be used to bypass the system prohibition against multiple NAA flags? That still exists.

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog I doubt it. :) I'm just glad he's back to being MAR and not being a rotating molecule.

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog That's really not how it works. There are additional penalties for those that shouldn't be conferred on someone who simply wrote a non-answer.

@M.A.R. It has all the hallmarks of possible spam. Plus, it's definitely abusive.

@Catija looks spam to me

12:56 AM
@Catija It definitely looks like an abusive answer (if not spam)

@M.A.R. Hence, "definitely abusive".

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog tbh, I'd rather spend the effort on stuff that's useful, and folks who post in the wrong place arn't useful

@JourneymanGeek Aside from the one example and Tim Post's (possibly speculative) statement, my answer is purely speculative.

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog I like where you are going, but I wonder if we could make a pretty good guess based on referrers. Not sure what we'd do with that information, however. I know meta can be confusing, but it's hard to know how to fix it.

@JonEricson Can't exactly do that with HTTPS and all

HTTPS still passes referers. Just not to everyone

Better to know why it's happening than to not know anything at all

I’m pretty sure you can whitelist referrer recipients.

This question was migrated from a different site, then closed as a duplicate. Later on, it was locked for historical significance. The revision history shows it correctly, and the vote arrows and flag option is gone (as expected). However, the lock notice for historical significance doesn't show ...

@Catija dropped waaaay back in the MSE rep standings due to the 2 week vacation buuut, apparently I'm #74 all time ;p

@JourneymanGeek YAY!
It's been a tough couple of weeks.

@SmokeDetector Huh. I thought they added me to the privileged list.

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog There's a different one for each room... did they add you to the one for the Tavern?

4:05 AM
@Catija I think only to the one for Charcoal HQ.

Angus is in there right now... I think he can give you privileges in here.

@Shog9 Now the migration notice is missing.

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog PATIENCE... FFS.
He usually changes the status and then posts an answer.

Two pings while I'm trying to type is just rude.

@Catija lol
Thanks for the clarification @Shog

4:11 AM
np

I was confused because that banner on the post on Veg.SE looked same as the one asked in the question and it was locked.
The migration was first accepted and then edited, voted and then closed as too broad by users. Then it was locked. Or am I wrong?

@NogShine all rejected migrations are locked (unless a moderator unlocks them manually)

Migrations can't really be "accepted".

Ohhh!
They land directly?
Shouldn't it go first to the moderators of the target site?

Should... probably... do... no.
There are a lot of different ideas on how to improve migrations... including banning them completely.

4:19 AM
Haha, the first time anyone has argued their own question should be changed from to .

One thing I observed is the users who have accounts on both the sites can vote twice on the question. This alters the actual question score. So, it is gaming the system.

@NogShine People have floated a double review process for them... users on Site A vote to migrate to Site B and sufficiently high rep users on Site be review the question and "accept" it... or mods doing the same thing, though there's nothing about migration review like this that really would require a moderator's intervention... sites are usually pretty good at judging the topicality of their own scope...
the problem is users who aren't on Site B who think "this sounds like it could fit on Site B" without even bothering to look at that site's scope.

@NogShine That's a design flaw, not a bug.

@Catija Yeah. They are either closed as off-topic or POB

@NogShine Depends. If the post has a negative score before migration, the votes are cancelled... if a post is getting upvotes on the originating site... it makes me wonder why it's being migrated.

4:24 AM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog It should be corrected either way.

@Shog9 What made you think of Texas here?
Feb 23 '17 at 5:22, by Shog9
Speaking of Texas, some anonymous benefactor has been beefing up the migration FAQ

Feb 23 '17 at 5:06, by zaq
The color reminds me of Texas A&M, those were good times. And of an album I like...

But why bring up migrations in that case?

@NogShine Depends on the site. I see it the most with the ELU to ELL migrations... A lot of ELU users seem to think that ELL will take just about anything in the way of questions about English... but they still do have standards for research and detail... so a good number of migrated questions are closed/rejected (there's no way to close without rejecting) that would (if fixed) be find on ELL...

I hear Texas is big on migrations

4:27 AM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Because Texas has major numbers of people migrating through it?

For a moment I thought he was checking the IP address behind the edit, which incidentally was from Texas
@Shog9 That was a coincidence, right?

@Catija I can give you an example of an upvoted question migrated to here from Hinduism meta. The reason given by mod was it does good on MSE and gets a good answer here. I was surprised by the reason and the user whose question got migrated thinks that a good upvoted FR on per site meta will be migrated here.

@Shog9 Sorry about that and the lateness for this.

@NogShine That's different... and I'd say a rare case... most migrations should be because something is off topic on a site.

Yeah. It is a rare one. That's why I was surprised.

4:35 AM
@Shog9 Need a Chaos Emerald here: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/305945/…

Is there a reason that we can't just let users vote to close without asking people to hammer it closed?
These sorts of things aren't urgent. There's no reason to ping a staff member to do it. There are plenty of regular users who can do the same thing.

@Catija I usually do that with @Shadow when he's around, but I thought I'd ping Shog since he's around and Shadow's not. That said, I believe that blatant closures should be expedited (in general on all sites), as the delay may allow for an answer to be posted. Which contributes to the impression of some people that they should try their luck in getting the question answered before it gets closed.

Ah non, the staff loves smashing these things

@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog It's a duplicate of a bug in the app. The only people who're going to answer that with any expertise is Kasra or Brian. I think it's safe to leave it open while it collects close votes on its own.

@Catija Okay, not so blatant, then.
@Catija It's the mobile site, not the app

4:45 AM
The tags are wrong on that question.

Eh... whatever... the point stands...

The thing is the OP of the new question added , to the revision. Not a new tag. So, is it still a dupe?

The dupe is the error message on a failed edit saying "your answer could not be submitted" instead of "your edit could not be submitted"... so... yes... it's probably essentially the same. The reason for the failure is likely immaterial.

This also happens for edits that don't go through for any reason, not just for creating tags without rep. — Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog 1 min ago

@Catija We're not requiring any system intervention; we're just doing so in comments. Plus, Jon Ericson agreed.

Him agreeing that it was a good idea is not the same thing as him giving permission for you to collect the data... particularly depending on what data you collect... if it records user info like email addresses, that would likely be a privacy issue.

@Catija It doesn't record user info. The only things it records are the time and the answer to that question.
