@Mithical so you hear the beeps, do you also read the messages?
@SonictheMaskedWerehog I don't like it since it's impossible to scroll to the end, or choose what page to see.
You lose helpful features.

I don't hear or see anything - computer has headphones plugged in, so I don't hear anything if I'm not wearing them. And the screen is usually off.
And my phone gets completely turned off, so even if you call me it won't go through :P

@Mithical oh, so that's good, you don't have to fight the temptation to reply. ;)
@Mithical so in case of emergency, how can people reach you?

Through the house phone or my parents, I guess.

6:09 AM
@Mithical good, need to know in case Tavern gets on fire. ;)

Doesn't count as an emergency, sorry :eyes:

Hi @Mithical

@Xnero I'm not sure if this is easier in your scenario, but you can also provide the FQDN of a site. For example site=superuser.com is supposed to work, no need to have the api_site_parameter

I was sleepy enough that I brainfarted over how to clear stars lol (from the starwall not the post)

8:44 AM
@SonictheMaskedWerehog Thanks for letting me know. BTW, I guess the link which you've given is incorrect. Please check the link.

9:11 AM
@technastic_tc Delete the "chat." from the URL. I copied that link from a canned comment I use, which uses a relative link, which I forgot to fix before pasting here.

I see, smoke detector was graying out when I joined

that is because it didn't post a message for 6 to 8 minutes.

Hey @SonictheMaskedWerehog! I did flag the question
But...
I failed :(

12:50 PM
that is not where flags or for.
ask a new question on meta to regain attention or bounty a question.

1:03 PM
where is Bart when you are bored

5 messages moved to Chimney

@technastic_tc Its worth remembering that like most (all?) sites - much of the moderation here is done by folks from the community like myself.
We do do retag requests ( And I believe you have one pending) to status-review but generally not status-complete but flagging isn't a good way to get a definitive answer from staff.

1:55 PM
@technastic_tc where did Sonic advise you to flag in order to set a bounty?? I really doubt that he said such a thing, pretty sure you misunderstood what he said, or the other way around. My first suggestion still apply: just set the bounty yourself. Losing 50 points won't remove any of your privileges.

Nothing's gone wrong.

@Ollie :(
@Ollie how much? What's the temp?

Hang on...

Here it's around 30 degrees outside. (Celsius ;))

That's really hot. It's about 7 Celsius here.

2:00 PM
@Ollie rope is tight, hurry up

Getting warmer, but still.

@Ollie oh ouch. Where are you??

In Vermont.
Near the New Hampshire border. I'm up kinda high, and in a bowl.
It's great weather for making your car refuse to start every morning, not so great for your poor frostbitten tomatoes.
Ah.

@Ollie so climb down to the warmth. ;)

2:15 PM
I live up here. I don't have a lorry and a camper trailer.

There is just no way they would sink to making spanking paddles.

@technastic_tc ok, thanks.

@QueenieGoldstein probably blocked by your workplace?
Here's a screenshot:

No.

2:28 PM
And the single review:
> This paddle is made too thin and it broke in half the very first time that I used it. Lesson learned, you get what you pay for even though this item was still way overpriced for what it is, a shaped piece of sanded wood with decorative holes. It is more intended for show than an actual instrument for "punishment". I do not recommend it at all.

Indeed. :P
@QueenieGoldstein oh lol

@JourneymanGeek Then what's the point of this post meta.stackexchange.com/q/348642/846219 ?

Can anyone share relevant information about how account association with CHAT.se works. The intricate, the better

Account association isn't so bad. Account dissociation is where stuff gets weird.

@Spevacus Yeah, i meant both actually

(∩ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)⊃━☆ﾟ. * ･ ｡

@user400654 It'll leave you breathless or with a nasty scar

Your chat parent is typically the site you have the most reputation on. If you're a moderator, it's the site you're a moderator on. If you're a mod on multiple sites... It's probably the site you've been a mod on the longest (citation needed.)

3:02 PM
@Spevacus you can change the parent of CHAT se

It's whatever site you set it to.

@Mithical Not just the site...in a way, whatever link you want

As far as dissociation goes... I'm pretty sure it's buggy as heck and not many understand it.

@Spevacus What do you mean by dissociation?

Profile deletion and such and how it affects your chat account.

3:05 PM
@Spevacus doesnt effect
the old account stays stuck and reputation is also stuk/not updated

No? I've been lead astray then: I was under the impression that some wild, super backwards stuff happened.

Nope, create an account, associate chat SE...delete account
it will stay there

Ah, I remember now. It's when you make an account, associate with Chat.SE, delete the account, then re-make that account... or something like that?
I dunno.
It's been awhile xD

Yes somewhat...that's why i would like some info

Well, Sonic's probably a good source of info. on it. Could probably also ask JMG when he's around. Not sure how fluent Mithical is.

3:10 PM
The backend isn't really my area of expertise. I can usually answer most questions about the front end, though (but broad overviews on the spot aren't my thing either).
A chat account isn't automatically deleted when a main account is deleted. This can lead to an anomaly where you have multiple chat accounts, which you then need staff attention to merge.

Recently there was a suspension issue on chat se which showed a ban message of offensive message instead of parent ban

(Things get very wonky with deleted accounts and chat.)

I know, been there, done that :)

Chat needs some love, but I suspect it will never get any. There's no reason for the company to want to spruce it up.

I heard it was supposed to get some attention... but that was before last year.

3:14 PM
SE: Where the rainchecks last years. ;)

Well, that's not entirely true. I know chat will be getting some attention in specific areas, but as for general improvements I have no idea.

@Mithical it did get from @balpha before he was re-assigned, few years ago, and since then, not a squeak.
SE won't remove chat as they're using it for their own internal stuff, but they also have no reason to improve it. For the ordinary users, it's just a bonus.

I hear they've largely abandoned internal chat and have moved to Slack
pretty much only the engineering team on internal now

@Mithical there's still room 1 here
I can see who's in there and when they post:
Just not what they write. Also, @Rubiksmoose you also have access to the internal SE room here? That's neat. ;)

pfah, the TL is here on chat.Meta ;)

3:24 PM
oh it's THE TL?? So how come I see mainly SE staff there?

Probably very talkative. They're still ticket smashing, aren't they?

There's the TL, and the internal chats (which are apparently mostly the devs and engineering, as evidenced by your screenshot).
So you'll see sekrit posts by network mods and staff, just not necessarily in the same rooms.

Darn sekrits.

perhaps...they are not protected by unbreakable vows
are they?

they are

3:28 PM
@ShadowWizardWearingMask Yeah other than TL I don't know what special rooms I'm in here. I'm in quite a few rooms though lol

@Rubiksmoose heh, nice. ;)

Does the Council Chat have an interesting name?

@Mithical the TL is not on chat.meta, unless that has changed since I left the company

it has

Yes...it's called SHIELD

3:33 PM
@balpha it did, as a temporary measure

interesting

92

A few notes: You're exactly right: it isn't fair to expect hundreds of people from a dizzying variety of backgrounds and cultures, wielding an even larger variety of languages, interests and beliefs, to get along with one another 100% of the time. Chat is notorious for triggering the worst in ...

@Spevacus It does not lol

@Rubiksmoose Well, you named the Barbequeue... I'm sure you could think of something ;)

huh, TIL

3:35 PM
@balpha Essentially - we lacked moderation tools
and one of the things we learnt/took away from all the drama was... we kinda needed some

Weird problem to have. The room for mods has lackluster mod tools.

@Spevacus in a sense, the tooling never grew with the network

El callar no sera mi vida

and tbh, it wasn't a priority for quite a bit of it
Even when you don't use those tools - its good to have ROs or Mods with teeth

Fangs

Yes, that was a good webcomic.

Well now they know...
