We’re celebrating some big birthdays for Node.js and Javascript.
 
5:30 AM
Looks like I got a blip from the server... getting "we are offline" for a while...
 
I briefly got a 503 service unavailable error but it disappeared after a second.
 
Still got an intermittent "Service unavailable" error...
 
No repro so far. I'm in Europe in case that matters
 
morning :)
 
5:50 AM
morning :) Happy monday feeling?
 
isn't it tuesday?
 
It is Tuesday but yesterday was a day off so yeah... Monday feelings :)
 
I have these mind reading capabilities ;)

Getting back to work at office after working remotely for quite a while...

Q: It's the end of the world as we know it?

Gian PaoloIt happened some minutes ago. I don't know how long it lasted, it seemed endless to me. I think 5 minutes, maybe more Scary

 
6:20 AM
@MetaAndrewT. Oof. Good luck and stay safe!
 
@SonictheStay-HomeHedgehog 5 users have no humor ... ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell thanks! :)
 
@rene Hits too close to home? :P Without the picture, that question could be about anything that's happened lately...
I honestly thought it was a troll post, given the score and text linked in here XD
 
@Tinkeringbell true, you know my bad sense of bad humor in bad timing.
three times bad is a win
 
That's true :)
 
6:29 AM
LOL

@SonictheStay-HomeHedgehog do not ping SE staff

@rene Is pinging JNat for cross-site spammers OK?
 
9 messages moved to Chimney
 
@SonictheStay-HomeHedgehog That is allowed, yes. IIRC we established that earlier?
 
@rene Might have been in the private room
Oh, wait, I remember
 
@SonictheStay-HomeHedgehog see ;)
 
@rene Also, does this apply only to me, or to everyone?
 
8:42 AM
It is explicitly targeted at you for now. If I see others steps over boundaries I'm sure I or other ROs will step in.
 
Have there been any specific complaints from SE staff over any of my recent pings?
 
No, because ROs are doing a great job at cleaning up after you.
 
@SonictheStay-HomeHedgehog The way this dynamic is SE staff won't snap at you and complain that you pinged them too much. They'll stop coming to the tavern instead or be quietly annoyed
because being around blurs into what is their job or is outright their job (for cms), so it's not an even dynamic
This is people in general. Telling someone they're annoying is an open confrontation and a lot of people aren't particularly confrontational and will endure discomfort or annoyance to avoid it.
 
Finally, if I have a matter other than the above specific exception that I believe legitimately warrants a ping, and any reasonable person would agree so, what should I do? Should I post it here, and ask an RO to ping on my behalf?
 
making sure beforehand can't hurt
 
9:00 AM
@Magisch Perhaps the best solution would be for a way to indicate how open staff members are to pings, so that no one oversteps that line, but you're right, that threshold is dynamic.
 
This suffers from the same problem
 
perhaps the best solution would have been not to abuse staff's presence in this room repeatedly over months until they were driven out of the room in the first place
 
You can't expect everyone to just be that candid with you
 
Basically, we expect everyone to use their common sense in estimating how open staff members are to pings. You failed that spectacularly several times, so we're telling you not to use your common sense and abstain from pinging entirely.

Honestly, this is not a discussion I'm going to have here again. I'll put a note in the mod room and if any employee feels the rule is unfair, I'll let you know.
 
It's a lesson I had to learn painfully as well but when in doubt and in general err on the side of not doing things that have a history of upsetting people
 
9:02 AM
Until then... no pinging employees should be a rule you can keep.
And also no brainstorming other solutions.
 
Also if the parrot says something contrary disregard what I say and listen to tink instead
I'm just a catcus ;)
 
I don't think we were saying stuff that went contrary to each other... but this is just the same old again and again. We've been over this, I think more times than I can count on two hands. ;) So there's no use in doing so again.
How was everyone's weekends?
(To stick with the monday feeling)
 
9:24 AM
/me feels urburguggggh
weekend was good tho
 
@djsmiley2kStaysInside That's not so good, but I'm glad the weekend was better :)
 
10:22 AM
@Tinkeringbell lazy. But I did watch the launch of those humans to the ISS.
I love a commute to work where I can just lay back ....
 
It's called a train ;)
And it'll take two hours, and the first one won't go.
 
11:05 AM
LOL
 
You're lolling a lot today... are you okay?
 
Can't watch that on the work laptop :(
 
Just ask the UK, they know what I'm talking about
(the video in question refers to the UK; my statement was that it apparently applies to the Netherlands as well)
 
pew
 
@SonictheStay-HomeHedgehog y'know, apart from being ridiculously polluting :P
 
@ArtOfCode Diesel locomotives pollute far more than gasoline engines...but they are quite efficient and have less climate impact.
 
11:54 AM
@SonictheStay-HomeHedgehog per unit, yes, but they carry orders of magnitude more passengers so there are orders of magnitude fewer units
 
@rene so, what's the secret of their toilets?
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance How they handle the lack of gravity ;-)
 
> No officials with SpaceX or NASA would tell to Business Insider exactly where the toilet on Crew Dragon is located in the commercial spaceship or how it works. There are also no indications about where a toilet might be located in any of the publicly available technical drawings of the spacecraft.
:(
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance I still don't know. Everytime it became intersting the cameras were switch off.
 
@rene maybe the secret is that there are no toilets! :D
Most simple. Most cheap.
 
11:58 AM
Afterwards they told "core"(?) where they put their disposed stuff.
 
Instinct whenever I see him in the room ^
 
ah, coffee... coffee is good
 
:)
@rene maybe in the coffee cups
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance Maybe "I put our waste in drawer 5, section b" is code language for "we opened the hatch and threw it overboard"
 
Unlike government, private company means they think twice about every cent they pay.
@rene no no, it must be preserved for later inspection on Earth. ;)
"for science", of course. :P
@Yaakov welcome to the Elite Club of People Having Their Name in Question Title! :-D
 
12:06 PM
Wasn't it on Apollo 13 that a crew member said: "We're venting something" and that ground facepalmed: "Do not fart in the spaceship". I might misremember.
 
@rene fart can't really be preserved... and contains almost nothing to preserve anyway. :D
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance Thanks. But looks like I have some catching up to do
2
 
nice comeback ...
 
Savage.
 
sniffs smells like a good burn :D
 
12:11 PM
Can someone find me a post where an http to https rewrite occurred? Looking to exclude those revisions from licensing. Hive mind: Activate!
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance oddly enough, having a question with my name in the title is how I ended up being a MSE mod.
Eventually
 
@YaakovEllis try an old faq
 
@YaakovEllis Howdy ho! Take this link and go!
 
@YaakovEllis none are actually about me.... sobbing
Even Shog9 has only 4.
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance Your first step is to break a post. Your next step is to break a post badly enough that another user is confused how you broke that post.
 
12:19 PM
(3 of which posted after his leave)
@Spevacus there was a post about users becoming wizards, probably deleted. :(
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance You've dropped your Wizard title in favor of social distance. I suppose it's a worthwhile trade.
 
Ready your pew's
 
already voted ....
 
oh wow how did it escape the radar??
 
12:32 PM
It's a slippery one.
It got pretty heavily DV'd right after it was posted IIRC.
 
@Spevacus I routinely check the Questions tab, and focus on heavily downvoted questions.
 
@ShadowKeepsSocialDistance Yeah I also try to get my close votes out there early if possible. There's a Close Vote queue for that, though. Is there a 10k queue for questions with a good few delete votes?
Well, perhaps not so much a queue more a... list?
 
@Spevacus there is, but I never use it.
 
@Spevacus At least some people keep backlogs
 
12:37 PM
I see I see. :)
 
hmm.... there was. They removed it. Ugh.... no, it got a tab of its own. lol
Once upon a time it was all in one big page.
Didn't really go there since then, probably.
 
@Spevacus gone
 
Glad I pinged you :)
 
Yeah, @Mith is fun to ping.
 
The Lord of Pings is back at it again.
 
12:42 PM
*raises eyebrow*
 
Shadow the Ping Wizard?
 
sending @Spe to a SPA
@Spevacus nah, too trivial. Like "Bart the Star Lord".
I do think of changing my name though!
 
Hrm...
 
@Sonic also depend on me, so can't change carelessly. ;)
in Shadow's Den, 49 mins ago, by Shadow Keeps Social Distance
@Sonic so I need to decide first if keep Corona related name, or back to something more fun. Oceaneer Wizard isn't known and almost nobody will really understand what it is, so I'm afraid I won't go with it anyway.
Maybe Shadow the @M.A.R Wizard?
 
Shadow the Disinfectant Wizard obviously.
 
12:45 PM
Yeah Oceaneer Wizard flies right over my head.
 
lol
Wait, isn't it the LGBT month or something like that? Supporting this is always a good cause...
 
it is indeed Pride month
 
Shadow the Proud Wizard?
hmm.. think I once had something like that... too bad we can't search past names.

Heya, @Glorfindel: d'you mind if I grab your query and put it in the body of the question instead of it being in an answer there? Just to make the post cleaner, so it only has answers with guidance for any given period :)
 
2:03 PM
@JNat sure, go ahead!
 
@Glorfindel awesome, thanks!

@user400654 Better? :)

7:49 PM
iOS app notifications are working again
 
Why though? :P
 
@SonictheStay-HomeHedgehog Technically, they were never not working.

9:27 PM
many of these will look like the example Spevacus gave you: UserId=-1, Comment='replaced ... with ...'
BUT
There are also a bunch of 'em with UserId set to NULL and UserDisplayName='URL Rewriter Bot'
If you're curious as to why, ask Taryn!
 
10:09 PM
\o/
Looks like that was made to be so because of this change, eh?
