@AdamLear Are y'all still hunting down that weird bug where SO stuff gets served to the non-SO sites?
 
I thought that was fixed
but I'm not 100% sure
 
Hm. OK. I was looking at meta.stackexchange.com/questions/307319/… and thought maybe that he saw the SO tour on Mechanics.
Do you have a way of seeing what pages they've viewed?

@Catija Did the tower always play "The Eyes of Texas" at 9:00 PM every night during your time here at UT?
 
@Ano I was never on campus that late.
 
Ano
@Catija You didn't get the chance to live on campus? It's my second year doing so right now.
 
When I was at UT, I was older... I didn't start there at 18. Living in dorms when you're 6 years older than everyone is... weird.
 
Ano
@Catija Ah, right, you said you were a few years older than your peers.
@Catija I just opened up your profile page, and I saw a pronounciation guide for your name. It wasn't there the last time I loaded it (or I didn't notice it). Did my previous discussion about that prompt you to add that in?
@Shog9 You saying that I flagged it three times? One was just a test flag that I immediately self-removed. So it's only two.

Hmm...the folks over at NEO are quite intent on getting us to bend the rules...
@RobertCartaino As others have said above, the NEO blockchain and its developing is still at its absolute infancy. With the core of the documentation being chinese, neo.stackexchange.com was an immeasurably useful, English-speaking haven where new developers could come and get their questions answered. It was a proper bootstrap to coders new to this whole system. There's no a system better than a StackExchange for a programming project, and no discord or slack is going to ever come near to its capabilities. Closing neo.stackexchange.com is a direct hit to the developer community of NEO. — Dimitris Sfounis Feb 20 at 21:19
@Shog9 Is the fact that reputation gain from suggested edits is reversed when the post is deleted, intended to discourage people from suggesting edits to posts that are likely to be deleted?
 
I seriously doubt it. Editing is usually beneficial and can mean the difference between a good and bad post. The reasoning for the deletion isn't even part of it, so that seems like pretty strong evidence that it's just part of the "no one earns/loses rep due to a deleted post"...
 
Ano
@Catija So I guess that's why that specific type of rep loss is kept obscure by default, unless you're carefully watching your rep numbers (no -2 on reputation tab heading, not shown in actual list unless you check "show removed posts" or go to /reputation)?
 
Very little that's negative rep-based is made obvious.
 
4:26 AM
Happy! Morning...
Wait, it's afternoon already!?
 
Ano
@Catija Say, you don't happen to have suffered from allergy symptoms a lot here? It's hit me, and I thought it was just me, but even the locals seem to be having such issues.

anyone aware of this?

@OptimusPrime Looks like there are a lot of exceptions. I can't do anything about it, but I'm sure the SREs will be looking soon.

6:14 AM
@JonEricson Do we leave some sort of mark on questions that are posted through the app? I suspect that some off-topic questions get posted here because of the app's advertising in the App Store/Play Store, and the UI they are presented with after installing the app.
Am I really the youngest user (by account age) to hit the top ten in the quarterly rep league?
 
7:14 AM
@Ano There's no public way to know. I could look at our internal data to see. But the last time I looked, not many people use the app to create content.
 
Ano
@JonEricson I have one example of such a question, by the way.
 
@JonEricson heh - I mostly use it for the notifications ;p
 
@JourneymanGeek Me too. 100%

@Catija And another foggy morning here at the UT campus...
I frequently find myself stopping and waiting for squirrels to cross whenever they want to cross my path. 75% of the time they just give me the right of way...
 
Actually, I want to comment that "ask it on meta" is global on every site, thus it should be asked on MSE (or otherwise customize it only on MSO)... but I guess he will be mad at me for suggesting MSE...

@Catija You don't happen to be on the UT campus right now, attending Girl Day? I saw a baby that looked just like the one on your avatar.
If you are here, come back to room 0.706!
 
@Ano nope. Sorry. At home. Just back from voting.
 
Ano
@Catija Well, babies do look alike...
I can't vote here even though I'm registered because they don't take out-of-state IDs, and my passport's at home, so...
 
9:45 PM
@Ano how are you supposed to flee the country if your passport isn't here?
I find the voter ID law here is painful and a great way to disenfranchise voters.
 
Ano
10:40 PM
@Catija After all the Republican Party themselves admitted that the vote in states that implemented ID laws ended up being slanted toward themselves
During the November 2016 election I had to explain to the person checking IDs that the last name was marked under "surname" and the first name under "given names". Apparently very few people use a passport. Those are expensive, and the only reason my family and I have one is because we frequently travel to India.
 
I'm always somewhat surprised that relatively few Americans seem to have a passport.
 
@Bart It's less surprising when you go through the process of renewing yours -- you have to go to a postal service location, most of which only accept passport applications during set hours on the weekday (and usually a subset of that time is for walk-ins, the rest by appointment), then pay for the fee, get a photo taken, and wait ~ a month for it to be mailed to you.
 
Ano
@Bart Naturalized citizens are prompted to apply for a passport after their naturalization.
@hichris123 No, you can renew purely by mail these days, without having to go to a post office
 
@hichris123 that sounds like a normal process to me? Nothing strange about that.
In fact, living abroad I have to travel to my embassy.
 
@Ano Looking at the requirements, you're correct; last time I renewed I fit into one of the requirements of not being eligible.
@Bart At my local post office, the hours of accepting passport applications are from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm on weekdays, or time that work/school is occurring. And sometimes one might have to wait upwards of a half hour, which means one would have to specifically plan to take off of work/school for it.
 
10:57 PM
@hichris123 still nothing out of the ordinary. In the Netherlands you'd need to go to town hall. Here in CH I have to make an appointment at the embassy within a 15 minute window. If you're late, you're out of luck. Great fun.
Anyway, overall the rate of having a passport seems much higher over here than in the US. Granted, if I trip over my own feet here, I'm in another country.
 
Sounds like it. Although I bet the culture is slightly more relaxed towards it in the Netherlands; if you told your boss you were taking off for a couple hours to get your passport at most jobs you'd probably be laughed at in the US.
 
I've not renewed my passport when it expired in 2011. Never missed it. Saved me time and trouble.
 
Myeah, EU is quite okay. I traveled too much though

@hichris123 Where people work in jobs where they get fired if they miss a single day, even though they have available vacation days. That's why the usage rate of vacation days here is so low; workers are willing to work unpaid for a few days to ensure their job isn't lost.
 
11:00 PM
Although I once convinced Easyjet to let me fly on an expired passport and my Swiss permit. :D

@rene And you've avoided international travel?
 
Yep
 
He's probably just on some no fly list
 
That might have contributed, yes ...
