It'd help if we had something a little stronger than tea.
Take what we can get I suppose.

@ArtOfCode That's because spammers don't want to be complicit in spreading the virus (and they also don't want to be detected) :)

5:29 AM
@SonictheMaskedWerehog that probably doesn't apply to all of them though, as there definitely people who wouldn't care :/

@NordineLotfi True. It's an addiction, after all

Yeah
wanted to see your reaction :)

@NordineLotfi No point in asking, 'cause it'll be the same reaction when it was brought to my attention two years ago.

@SonictheMaskedWerehog OH, didn't knew :O (I genuinely found it at the same time i saw your profile since i was curious). Though i don't see your reaction on that link :P

I had the same reaction then, and the same reaction now: "meh, not worth posting about it"

5:34 AM
hmm, fair enough.
@SonictheMaskedWerehog so anyway, did you played any/all of the games? (for Sonic)

No, only four. The two games titled "Sonic the Hedgehog" (1991, 2006), Sonic CD, and Sonic Generations (though only a little of that)

I see! I recall playing most except anything after 2010 (i really liked the one from 2000 on pc, forgot the name though...)
never tried any of the recent ones for some reasons
nvm, found the name "Sonic Adventure DX" released in 2003
always thought it was released in 2000 hmm

Btw, how to get into the Smoke Detector blacklist/

@QueenieGoldstein Unclear what you are asking. You want me to add you to the user blacklist? :) Or do you mean something else ...

5:40 PM
@DavidPostill If I ask you how to get into MIT, will you admit me directly? lol
I meant why are some users blacklisted and how did they earn it

@QueenieGoldstein When a user posts something that SmokeDetector reviewers consider spam, they respond to it by stating that it is a "true positive" and blacklist that user. The blacklist doesn't necessarily make them blacklisted in the eyes of the network, it just increases the metric by which SmokeDetector uses to evaluate a post upon whether it is spam.
A user who spams once is likely to spam again, is essentially the philosophy.
When SmokeDetector is very sure a post is spam, it'll help the community delete it by casting spam flags on behalf of other volunteers to work towards that post's deletion.
A user being blacklisted makes SmokeDetector quite a bit more sure that a post they post is spam.

Ohhh Thanks
Me: Spams Upvote^^^on the information

@QueenieGoldstein Charcoal has all the gory details :)

Mhmm mhmm. If you're more interested in how Smoke Detector works, you can visit the documentation on it.

@DavidPostill Yeah I have seen charcoals github etc, Nice work

begone!

Wohoo, did i bring the chat to life? xD

You may have ;)

Haha X)
Awkward silence
@Safdar MathJax in profile doesnt work on Meta SE, you can use this page style meta.stackexchange.com/users/826559/…

5:53 PM
@QueenieGoldstein Use this newfound superpower wisely ;-)

@QueenieGoldstein It's just a number (just like age).. It doesn't change much..

@Safdar $2024 looks good,$2024\$ looks math, that's what am saying

@QueenieGoldstein Did it.. thanks :)

@Safdar But did you italic the page like i did ;)

@QueenieGoldstein I'm not gonna be on meta much, so not gonna attempt to figure it out.. I might do it later, it looks different ( in a cool way)

5:57 PM
@Safdar Works for all communities [see post](meta.stackexchange.com/questions/354004/… )
<pre><i><pre><pre><pre><pre><pre><pre><pre><pre><pre></i></pre></pre></pre></pre></pre></pre></pre></pre></pre></pre></pre>
Copy paste

@QueenieGoldstein I've seen this completely destroy the formatting on a meta post.. You pointed it out on whatever quid IIRC..

@Safdar That had the <code> tag, this is sanitized to look cool and kill the virus

@QueenieGoldstein Huh? What virus?

You can replace <i> with <b> for bold etc.etc
@DavidPostill Karolina Virus
Karolina 90 if am not wrong

At the moment it looks like you are talking gibberish. Google has no links to a Karolina virus (90 or otherwise).

7:03 PM
Am I going crazy or Facebook has decided to self-terminate by requiring login to access any profile page (including those of companies that advertise thru the site)?

7:16 PM
I haven't opened FB for a long time. What has changed? :3

@MetaAndrewT. Apparently, now it requires log-in just to view public profiles, including those of government departments, gaming company and so on.
What's weird, direct links to a specific post apparently are still visible

... ugh.
let's see if Instagram will follow the trend...

@DavidPostill Covid-19....:( Karoline equivalent to Corona....😩 [status-failed] joke

7:33 PM
@MetaAndrewT. From what I heard, Instagram already blocked anonymous browsing some time ago. But I didn't check, I don't use it

7:46 PM
To be fair, I don't use facebook either, but I was checking some live stream video from a nearby musical event.
Until yesterday, the official page of the event was visible without the need to log-in. Today, doesn't seem so.

@Rubiksmoose how do you move messages to Chimney?
Do you have to have a privilege?

be a room owner... or mod :)
those users with italic/blue name...

Does Rubik own this room @MetaAndrewT.?
Ohh italic name

@Ollie yes, as can be seen on the room info page

I still don't really get it.
I'm on that list.
The upper right one.

it's a 2-column page:
1. current/frequent users are listed on the right
1. the owners of the room are listed on the left

8:56 PM
Ah.
You can't become an owner can you?

I can't on my own

You get put on the list by mods/other owners

No chance of sweet-talking you into it, is there Rubiksmoose? ;)
Pleeez

hahahah it wouldn't be a decision I could make on my own regardless ;-)

9:02 PM
Well, you need to be really trusted, because this room is basically the main room of MSE

What, you don't trust me? :D

Well, I trust you... but even I who have been on the Tavern for 3+ years is still a mere user :P
Otherwise, just create a new chat room and become the sole ownership, and you can do anything you want. insert evil laughter

Excellent! Bye.

Ta! Da!

Never mind.
I'll do that later.
@ShadowWizardWearingMask I saw you in the Trashcan. Did @SmokeDetector put you there? ;)

10:02 PM
@Rob please no more monkey-related jokes.
;)

Ollie gets his own room:
Awwwww

10:23 PM
How can I view a total vote count across SE for me?

10:34 PM
@Daniil Is this close enough (all sites where you have more than 200 rep):

@Rob How does that show vote count?

There's also Area 51, where you participated in a site, which gives a slightly different result: area51.stackexchange.com/proposals{your number}?phase=definition --- other than that, for a huge list, there's SEDE.
