@bad_coder Welp, now I have to watch Gangs of New York :P

@EkadhSingh-ReinstateMonica Peter is rediculously productive, not omnicient.
Also, imagine the disruption fixing all that after the fact would have

@jour @Sonic is there any proof that the AWS sponsorship for SU is canceled?
 
Huh, that's news. What I know is that AWS wanted to sponsor SuperUser, Unix.SE, and DBA.SE

A: Which Stack Exchange sites have dedicated sponsors?

GlorfindelCurrent / upcoming sponsorships These sites in the network are sponsored through the formal site sponsorship program: Site Company Start date Duration Salesforce Gearset July 1st, 2021 one year Information Security Auth0 September 14th, 2021 4 months Database Administrators AWS Septem...

See sonics edit there
 
....... no?
We were informed of the sponsorship ahead of time
 
Perhaps @Rosie could shed some light here?
 
no one's mentioned a cancellation
and for god's sake, could we not jump the gun and spread rumours for the sake of being the first bearer of news?
 
Well I was just trying to find out what happened, seeing the edit Sonic made.
 
Until its confirmed by someone who knows what's going on, lets not spread stories of 'strong community objections'
I'm rolling back
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog I suggest for this, and things like this, you wait for official confirmation before jumping the gun
 
10:01 AM
@JourneymanGeek fine by me
 
@Luuklag The last paragraph in my most recent post should clarify things
 
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog this part: I should mention that it's now September 28 and the sponsorship seems to have not taken place - but I'm not sure if it's because of the community objections or for some other reason, or if it's just delayed, so I'm asking this question.)
So honestly you don't know and guessed it was cancelled?
 
I made the edit before the post. Then, I didn't think there was any other reason why the sponsorship would not be in place one day after the announced start date, and didn't think it was because the business deal fell through. (I didn't think that it could just be delayed until later, when I was writing the question.)
 
you literally edited a post saying it was cancelled
 
10:24 AM
maybe someone forgot to press the switch...
 
10:37 AM
yup
 
10:49 AM
@Catija Got my swag a couple of days ago. Just wanted to say thanks for including me in the drop, I really appreciate it.
 
11:31 AM
@MetaAndrewT. oh.. ok.
 
11:46 AM
^^ I see above message and try to see Snow profile but it's lead me error . Is this new bug. Any one confirm that.
 
Snow has a new account on MSE, but their chat account is linked to their old, deleted one
 
May I post this as a bug on meta or it's already posted ? Try to search but my search query is week and don't find any thing.
 
But that does seem to be about a specific user, rather than the general case, so I'm not sure
 
Thanks. I am going to post it on meta. Lets see what happen.
 
12:09 PM
@Shree post on meta. @cairdcoinheringaahing feel free to edit and thanks for reply.

these hacking posts by Donn Moo would probably benefit from more spam flags
and while you are at it, the Japanese casino spam too
and this freelancing.stackexchange.com/a/10273/15296 (reported 2 hours ago)
 
@tripleee Why they're staying up that long, half of Charcoal taking a day off? :P
 
seems pretty quiet in the room but that's not entirely unusual in this time zone
more likely our hang-arounds don't think it's worth the effort to join the site in question just to be able to flag their spam
and/or these sites are short on active mods
 
I thought the mods on Parenting weren't very inactive, but I may be wrong ;)
 
1:25 PM
@tripleee Just like me when flag 50k I leave , I don't want to accuse but situation happen.
 
most of them gone now, thanks ... if you still have juice left, lifehacks.stackexchange.com/a/25104/19760
 
@tripleee ah, I missed that one. Flagged + deleted
 
thanks!

+ some spam that's been up for a week: softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/a/80630/69972

@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 These flying boots suit you better:
 
@Ollie unregistered profile, but gone
@Ollie same

meta.stackexchange.com/questions/370352/… @Luuklag @SonictheAnonymousHedgehog
The sponsorship is live now fwiw
 
@JourneymanGeek Really? I see "SPONSORED BY" but no image ...
 
@DavidPostill Same here... thought it could be the adblock? :P
Do you have an adblocker?
 
@Tinkeringbell yup, image is under ad.doubleclick.net
 
UBlock Origin is removing it.
 
Good UBlock :)

A: Can communities object to their sites being sponsored?

RosieWe're so sorry for any confusion. The sponsorship has not been canceled and is now live. The team that oversees sponsorships ran into some instrumentation issues with the assets they were sent and they were fixed this morning. This happened late yesterday so I apologize there was no update until ...

This is no joke. The copy and paste keyboard from our April Fool’s joke is real and available for purchase.

@Feeds that's.... the best thing I've seen from SO for long, long, time.
@Rob isn't it just spiderboy?
He's not flying
 
Rob
5:20 PM
The idea is that the sparklers provide propulsion, and those boots are what was available; notice the use of four pieces of masking tape, which is certain to hold his weight.
@ShadowWizardIsVaccinatedV3 Like this?
 
@Rob oh, this now makes a lot of sense.
@Rob risky, kid might next try to fly from the roof.
 
@Snow I'm so glad to hear it! And you're very welcome.
