@JourneymanGeek :(
Will you be able to go home after the meeting?

Quick debate discussion: is downvoting against CoC?
Because well, as some might have known, some negatively scored feedbacks on CoC are about downvoting...
 
@SomewhatMemorableName no
@Catija just left. One hour transit tho
 
4:27 AM
Now if the train would move...
 
"We apologize for the inconvenience..."
 
Can someone please tell me if the author responded to my comment on this question?
Best way to keep people who use SE during their work period on task: throw "too many requests" errors at people who just browse a few pages.
 
4:58 AM
@SomewhatMemorableName this line is a bit finicky. It's a new add-on to an older line...

@JourneymanGeek ... and when it moves, you hope it is in the right direction ...
 
7:35 AM
it went south...
 
Winter?
White Walkers?
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog nope, OP didn't post any comment.
 
@SomewhatMemorableName oddly enough it did

> The API way is boring
 
@ShadowWizard you can still see the content of this question right?
troll attempt, mistake or actual evidence of some phishing campaign?
 
 
shouldn't the link be removed?
or are they inviting us to have fun skewing the data ? :P
 
10:21 AM
@Derpy done.
IMO the data is already badly skewed, pretty sure many did it. My guess? Over 100, maybe much more.
If I was Tim, I'd ditch that survey and send a new one, making sure to pick correct emails this time.
 
naw, or just filter out any emails that are not mods
 
@JourneymanGeek the survey is anonymous
Or at least it says it is
So it means they don't track the one filling it.
(aka SE can't know who wrote what and can't filter out imposters)
 
ahh phooey
I suppose they'd all say terrible negative things and make Tim sad
 
@JourneymanGeek yeah, so no idea why Tim is so calm about it.
Probably this survey isn't really important to begin with and used for... well, nothing. :)
 
@ShadowWizard ... oh so negative
 
10:28 AM
+1
See? Positive. :D

@ShadowWizard Or it's part of Tim's morally gray masterplan
 
10:56 AM
@Magisch Tim would be offended. You assume that... there's a plan
 
It's a secret nomination for SO mods .-.
 
lol those who give better answers than current mods are auto elected! :D
I am offended for not getting such an email!
 
11:25 AM
seems @Yvette is not around...
so I guess I get to post the daily pony instead

@Derpy 'The Elements, Alchemy'? Trying to learn how to turn pony crap into gold, or maybe hay?
 
Alchemy? Where you see "Alchemy" ?? ^_^'
 
12:15 PM
@Derpy Oh.. 'harmony' :)
 
oh, and btw, before I forget. You won something too.
 
glad to see the script is still in use
 
Ha, I'm not alone anymore ;) \o/
 
12:36 PM
@rene the club is ever growing!
 
1:16 PM
@SterlingArcher quick, let's start a discussion to argue if the first comment is welcoming enough.
 
uh huh, tool ate
no discussion allowed after this message ;p
 
you ate the tool?
was it chocolate?
and, more importantly, if it indeed was chocolate, why you hate it all alone without offering any to us poor hungry ponies?
 
@SomewhatMemorableName to Olate. That Olate is always late. Go figure!
 
2:08 PM
BLAST IT ALL, you've figured me out, you uncovered my plan to appoint moderators based on who complains the most before even being appointed.
 
... we did? WE DID!
 
@TimPost Haha. I found you out!
Here's hoping I wont be a casualty in the coverup
 
1975 new moderators appointed on SO
 
@Magisch didn't you.... YOU'RE DOOOOOMEEEDDDDD
Also, its a little late but I'm not fond of "not relevant" over "No Longer Necessary" ._.
I'll probably complain on meta if I can catch a breath.
 
> The middle flag option is now named "It's not relevant". I'm sure someone complained about this phrasing in the past when new comment reasons have been demo'd, but lots of comments that are relevant should still be removed. There was nothing wrong with the previous name of "No longer needed"... can we please have that phrasing back, or at least keep the spirit of it with "Not needed"? As it stands, "It's not relevant" is factually incorrect in some cases and repeated in the longer subheading.
 
2:18 PM
commented ;)
 
I think they need more pony mods, just to be sure they are inclusive enough.
 
on ponies!.se?
 
@Derpy You could stand in an election or nominate yourself to be appointed?
 
^^^^
I did both.
 
I also did both but to different results
Sometimes you lose and sometimes others win
 
2:21 PM
Yup
(but even if you lose, or choose not to play, you can make an impact)
I have a regular on SU who'd probably make a decent mod if he stood, but probably won't
So I need to settle for him occationally sniping me gloriously on SU Meta :)
 
2:36 PM
I think 10k mod tools really need some love... undeleting a(n old) question is almost an impossible feat, even commenting to let the "reviewer" know the reason why I voted to undelete is impossible ;_;
can't help, mod-flagged it just now...
perhaps it's a big effort to add "delete review queue" and "undelete review queue" to the review popup for 10k users?
 
@Magisch I think I have already demonstrated multiple times that my be-nice standards are somehow different from theirs, so I am pretty sure that wouldn't end well
 
I feel like we should be giving away a bunch of swag, but I can't think of a neat contest. Open to ideas.
 
Something unrelated to CoC at all
 
Oh, :(
 
what about a "who can get more downvotes in a week"?
 
2:46 PM
@TimPost since I heard your next target is to improve Meta experience, why not... use that idea?
 
I thought of that, but fell short of being inspired to name an actual endeavor for folks to undertake to get swag.
 
Create a (personal) mood board for your favorite community, existing or not. Use crayons, text, photo's, code, ponies
 
Use meta to improve meta. What a meta.
 
3:07 PM
I'd be down for meta.meta.stackexchange.com but our engineering department would stuff me in a suitcase.
 
3:21 PM
Don't run Stuff Tim in a suitcase as contest. You'd rather run another License, ToS and CoC update in the same week ...
 
@TimPost I was just pointed to the rules of a reactjs discord, and I thought it might help you on the CoC chat side. reactiflux.com/tips
 
@TimPost you could make a re-do of having people write about their personal new user experience on SE in a positive way
To coax meta regulars to relive their happiest times on SE and soothe some of that anger
 
Post your most outlandish SE conspiracy theory
 
Jeff has been programming on a boat.
 
SE wants to eliminate chat altogether :P
 
3:27 PM
@Magisch .... seems like a diet success testimonials program
 
meh
 
 
1 hour later…
5:01 PM
@Shog9 Why can't <50 rep users delete their own automatic comments that were posted on their behalf? meta.stackexchange.com/questions/313474/…
 
@SonictheInclusiveHedgehog I'd assume it's delegated to the Community since they don't have enough rep to comment.... but hey, that's just a theory. A Game theory!

Q: Why was the display of prior "no longer needed" comment flags retroactively changed to "not relevant" in my flag history?

Sonic the Inclusive HedgehogI noticed that the "no longer needed" flagging option for comments was changed to "not relevant". Okay, fine. This should affect all future flags. But I noticed when looking in my flag history that all of my previous "no longer needed" flags had changed to "not relevant", including those I cast ...

@SomewhatMemorableName ^^
 
@JourneymanGeek We're looking at it. I'm with you that the change isn't great. Trying to better understand it and see what can be done about it. :) Will hopefully have an update soon.
 
@Catija I noticed that the team is simply putting out changes without posting an announcement in advance or at the time the change was made. Often I see users (including me) asking about the change before there's an announcement, and then a long delay before a staff member eventually responds. Why is that?
 
Because they're quite busy?
 
@πάνταῥεῖ It used to be that they'd announce the change quickly, and open up answers for bug reports and suggestions. They were busy during those times as well. Obviously something else has changed.
 
Change in management? Change in company workflow, etc.?
Certainly I don't know the answer, but this "sudden change" is common on many companies
 
5:55 PM
@Catija congratulations on the job :)
 
I imagine @Catija goes through with a steel broom ;-)
 
6:11 PM
lose weight on cooking.se
 
Yeah. I already tidied everything up ;)

@TimPost uh, whoever can come up with the best lifehack to prevent you from losing your keys?

7:02 PM
@TimPost can we have a contest for making snarky comments on meta without any real contribution? I'll take my prize now...
 
You'll probably not get swag as the winner :-P
 
7:16 PM
@πάνταῥεῖ If anything, they'd probably press me into rowing the review queue slave galley...
 
7:50 PM
