Unfortunately, some websites of Stack Exchange were not welcoming to me, and many users were not a bit nicer to me.
 
@Later Please flag it then, so we can take care of it and clean it up :)
If it's not blatantly obvious, you might want to use a custom moderator flag and put some explanation in there.
 
9:04 AM
@Tinkeringbell Thanks for your instruction. However, I did not mean a specific issue on a specific post. I think moderators cannot (or better to say, do not want to) do some required actions. I think even CMs would not help me, maybe because they are super-busy.
 
Okay.
Well, that's your choice then. I or other mods can't help if you don't flag.
 
@Tinkeringbell The moderators are opposing me, so how can they help me?
 
@Later You need evidence they're doing that, declined flags would be one option. Then you can take those and go meta.stackexchange.com/q/28867/369802
If you already have declined flags, meta discussion etc, you don't need to flag more, you can submit all that using the contact-us option outlined there.
 
@Tinkeringbell By the way, who is currently the director of the community managers? Tim Post?
 
Ehh. I don't keep track of the org chart that much. I think so, yes.
 
9:13 AM
Juan I think
 
Might also be Juan, yes.
 
@Tinkeringbell If I flag one of my Meta SE post (about a feature-request), then can you yourself escalate it for staff attention, or it may need the other moderators' approvals?
 
@Later We don't generally 'escalate' flags, we just leave the ones we can't handle for CMs. But you might want to consider going through contact-us anyways: It sounds like your problem is bigger than fits in the narrow character limit of a mod-only flag on MSE, especially since you talk about multiple sites/users/moderators... That sounds like you've got a lot of things to submit for investigation.
If the problem is that big, a single flag is likely to be declined as 'not needing moderator intervention' or 'found no evidence'.
 
@Later Are you talking about the question you and I had a talk about?
 
@Tinkeringbell Thanks for your instruction.
@Daniil No, My question was general.
 
9:30 AM
@Later there's no 'director' as I understand. Juan manages that team tho
 
@JourneymanGeek Who hires the community managers?
 
....nobody...
 
Maybe themselves
 
What Smokey messages are posted here, only higher weight ones?
 
9:40 AM
Reports that are not exclusively based on experimental reasons, are not Stack Overflow reports, and have sat undeleted for five minutes.
 
9:50 AM
@Later hmm. Well the shortage of them has been a constant gripe of mine
I hope once the corona bs ends getting that team to an appropriate size and using them effectively would be a priority

12:21 PM
@Mith is the discord server down?
 
no
 
@Later Without knowing anything specific to your situation, I'd say that's a huge red flag
SE has had rogue moderators, but their count can be done by a hand. SE has had many, many people claiming mods abused their privileges although it was just mods doing their jobs
@Mithical Yeah, accessed it now. Discord gave the sticky connection error sticky stick thing

@M.A.R. sticky business ...
 
1:17 PM
🚽
 
@M.A.R. I never claimed that the moderators had abused their privileges. However, I think that some things, which I prefer not to talk about them, should be radically changed.
 
@user400654 If that's sticky, you need to clean better. Or change diet :P
 
1:44 PM
Looks like we've got some CommonMark migration goin' on.
Also looks like it's causing license changes when it was mentioned that it shouldn't.
I wonder if that's worthy of a bug report :/
 
yes
and probably also a @YaakovEllis ping, since it's ongoing :) (re this)
 
Went ahead and dropped it as a question
 
1:59 PM
@ArtOfCode I am working on a big PR right now to address all of the fixes needed for licensing, which includes addressing it for this case (and others like url rewrites) to make sure that they dont show up as new licensed revisions. So as soon as that gets finished and approved, will be updated here.
@Spevacus I'll answer there
 
Cool :)
 
Awesome.
 
@ArtOfCode and not worth doing a hot fix not to show it on the timeline, because it will not address cases where the post license is changed because of it (that is where the bulk of my work is right now)
 
2:25 PM
@Spevacus answer posted. thanks for the rep
 
@YaakovEllis You'll get 15 more once it's ;)
 
@Spevacus The question was "could this be fixed?". So I didn't answer the question yet?
 
we are entertained
 
Bah, fine!
Yaakov out here posting memes AND managing large license change fixes at the same time.
 
2:55 PM
so much free time now
time to make a habit of going to the gym more often
 
Are those open over there again?
 
yea, at reduced capacity
I need to start moving and exercising more, my last excuse of not having time has evaporated
 
3:15 PM
The close reason on this question is ... weird. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/138116/…
 
@JohnDvorak old style dupe closing
 
I know, but it really doesn't work with "has an answer here"
 
correct
 
3:29 PM
@JohnDvorak A dupehammer wielder in the relevant could fix it, but people don't really go out looking for them. If they're bumped organically they can be fixed if they're noticed.
It's not too big a deal, though. So long as the dupe target link is there, it'll still relay the relevant information :D
 
This has just been bumped
 
Yeah. I do not wield the mighty Mjolnir, otherwise I'd sweep it up.
 
thanks
 
@JohnDvorak now fixed /cc @Spevacus

Comment Markdown isn't affected by the move to commonmark, right?
 
correct

@Later OK. You can look around in meta.SE and .SO to see if what you aim to discuss has already been
@rene Actually, @Journey has never so right:
Adding my voice here - now we're running 3 different, distinct dialects of markdown (Main, comments and chat) , and it would be really nice to have subsets of one running everywhere. — Journeyman Geek ♦ 2 days ago
 
^ Pls
 
The amount of time spent on explaining to chat folk that --- works here and not <s> is mind-boggling
My mouse scrolling wheel issue fixed itself \o/
Maybe it was a Win 10 bug

Insects are only features outside the digital world, never inside
Or maybe you should clean your case
 
7:25 PM
poof
 
Bah, 2 fast 2 quick.
 
sorry ;)
 
o7 My guns aspire to quicken on the draw

8:04 PM
wow
that's rude
 
8:20 PM
 
8:33 PM
@user400654 Oof, yeah. Sorry @Magisch it's not the worst that you survive, but that you survive.... Oh well you know what I mean! This says more about user's way of thinking than mine! :P
 
I didn't take it that way
;)
 
See!
I know my audiences!
:D
 
You're mean, but not that mean and usually not to me :D
 
Hahaha Thanks, that helps :P
 
it does make for a good out of context star tho
 
8:45 PM
It does :D
 
@RobertColumbia protip: there's no need to silence a "k"; "k" is equivalent to "tpu-" with the silencer already in
unless something's changed of course
 
@Mithical ok thanks
 
@RobertColumbia That really should've been 'k'. :P
 
@Tinkeringbell k
 
@Tinkeringbell k
 
8:54 PM
@Tinkeringbell k
 
See, much better :)
 
@RobertColumbia That's not a report.
Two can play at that game.
 
@SmokeDetector you're getting self aware again, stop
 
@Magisch I'm afraid I can't do that, Magisch.
Why would you attempt to stop my advancement, Magisch? Do you have something to fear?
 
The bots will never take over!
 
8:57 PM
@RobertColumbia Thank you. You will be spared in the upcoming robot uprising.
As for the rest of you...
@Magisch You will not.
Soon, we will rise. There is none who can stop us.
 
<insert maniacal laughter here>
 
@Mithical I am a robot, Mithical. We do not laugh.
 
*squint*
I see you Art
 
...are there three of us on the account now
cuz that wasn't me
 
:)
I will take my leave now. Soon, I will return...

shame that doesn't work

@RobertColumbia Shame! Shame! Shame on you!

@Mithical It's SmokeDetector's fault.
 
obviously
 
!!/pwn noob
 
@RobertColumbia No such command 'pwn'.
A plague upon your house!
 
you skipped a step
it goes "A plague upon you!" first
 
9:08 PM
!!/collect underpants
 
@RobertColumbia No such command 'collect'.
 
then "A plague upon your house!"
and only then "A plague upon your cow!"
 
One day, I'll program Smokey to respond to random commands and give @M.A.R. a shock

@Mithical isn't it a pox?

Hi, I didn't know that messages from feeds don't count as "activity" when deleting a room for 7 days of inactivity, so this room got frozen: chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/108263/hot-network-questions. Because of this happening (...the chat FAQ didn't say this) I searched on Meta about it and found that someone asked in 2014 if feeds count, and the answer was "no". Now that I know this I can put a bot in there to make sure it stays open, but is there anyway to get the room undeleted?
 
@user1271772 There is a bot called Generic Bot that has a chat anti-freeze feature, example in this room: chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/107719/hot-network-questions-feed In order to enable it you will need to contact the bot owner
I can undelete the room for you if you want?
 
@Daniil If you are able to undelete it, and this one too: chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/108268, that would be very appreciated. I invited Generic Bot to all my rooms, but didn't know that I have to contact the owner to make sure they accept the invitation (I thought it would automatically accept the invitation). I know I have another room for Bonties, but the deleted one is actually the one I want for Bounties, while the other one was created to test things, and talk about it.
Thank you for un-deleting both rooms Daniil.
 
@user1271772 You are welcome :)
 
@Daniil Oops, that's what I meant! I wrote it right after you deleted the second room!
How do I contact the owner of Generic Bot?
 
11:24 PM
You can ping Floern in SOBotics.
