Q: Farewell Yaakov and thanks for the haiku!

CatijaYou may soon notice one fewer diamond around the site. The amazing developer, tech lead, and community advocate Yaakov Ellis - user 51(!) - has taken an opportunity elsewhere and today, December 7th, 2023, is the end of over 10 years working for Stack Overflow. When he shared this with me, I offe...

@Tinkeringbell ... to be honest, some may remember some exchange we had just after Catija removal about how I totally expected Yaakov to be the next.

^ @Journeyman @Mith
@SPArcheon but it's different, he left on his own.
I think??
@Tinkeringbell huh! I admit! cowers in a dark corner
:D

@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry Look, I don't want to start any worthless tinfoil hat theory but I will just ask this.
Do you usually leave the place you are happy at? -_-
 
@SPArcheon I finished the second half of season 2. It was good, and I think it made up for the first half. The closing double episode was good too.
 
@ElementsInSpace well, I suppose this leaves you with "Wasted character potential 101" next.
 
Oh, is that season 3?
 
11:34 AM
season 3 is shorter because of issues during production
therefore it is 13 episodes instead of 26
the opening two part episode allegedly was planned as a three part one
The result is that the antagonist is kinda rushed and not given enough personality.
Ironically, the design is kinda good so it became very popular in fan works.
It is also the protagonist of that comic I mentioned before.
 
Is the comic a continuation of that story or a parallel?
 
It is a continuation. Or perhaps it would be better to call it an.. explanation.
As I said, MLP IDW comics have a weird "canon" status
They are considered "canonical" to the show... until they are not
basically, comic are considered part of the story until the show doesn't do something that retcons or contradicts them
in this case the last season has an episode that could be seen as a contradiction to the comic story, so most don't consider it canonical any longer.
 
11:50 AM
I think I can handle diverging canonicities/continuities.
 
12:19 PM
hmm
@SPArcheon well confirmed my assumption, think it's fine to share. (Yaakov left on his own, wasn't laid off.)
Why? Can think of many reasons, all fine and legit, and doesn't have to be because of bad things.
While I don't like the management, don't think this one is on them. At least not directly.
 
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry I'd say, I'd leave it to Yaakov to say, and respect his reasons no matter way :D
 
@JourneymanGeek sure, he can share the reasons, this I can't really guess.
 
12:46 PM
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry for whatever reason I can't see who pinned the message
 
no one pinned that message
 
ah wait
lol I was so blind to details
 
he made a request to pin things
 
@PetəíŕdTheLinuxWizard details schmetails?
 
@ElementsInSpace hello
 
12:54 PM
Hi
 
1:12 PM
@PetəíŕdTheLinuxWizard …
 
2:15 PM
uhm
re-enriching?
and the link at the end is broken.
 
@JourneymanGeek ...again.
Whatever is handling their redirection seems to occasionally...not.
 
@VLAZ or giving things a onceover once done
 
Last time I reported this, it was fixed within minutes. I am fairly sure it wasn't that some staff who saw it and fixed it.
 
or they're linking to a blog post that's not gone live yet
 
@JourneymanGeek The link is correct but gets redirected to https://stackoverflow.blog/undefined/teams-enterprise-2023-3-release somehow missing the date which is in the original https://stackoverflow.blog/2023/12/07/teams-enterprise-2023-3-release
My last report: meta.stackexchange.com/q/394506 took ~30 minutes between me posting and me commenting it was fixed. That's definitely some time after the real fix was done (I've not spammed refresh or anything).
 
2:33 PM
@VLAZ I think its less a "they'll ignore it" and more "meh" :D
 
2:50 PM
The error is still there... not sure when it's expected to go away.
 
6-8
or they won't know its there till someone complains
ah they fixed it
and changed the title from re-enriching to enriching?
 
We are now minus one Yaakov. My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined. :(
 
@Spevacus I would assume I'd be used to bad news by now :/
 
3:22 PM
@Spevacus actually I'm not disappointed, but rather happy. Happy for Yaakov, and sure he has good reason(s). If this would have been done by force i.e. laying him off that's a whole different story, but that's not the case, gladly.
 
4:19 PM
@Tinkeringbell Take revenge.
 
4:34 PM
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact hey, I have trademark for replying to old messages! :P
(or should have!)
looking for something really old to reply to
 
@ShadowWizardIsSadAndAngry Not my messages.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact OK, we won't reply to your messages.
 
5:14 PM
@VLAZ You already failed!
@SPArcheon That's gotta be illegal.
Contemplating whether I should request access to that room.
I do eat a lot of sugar.
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact Damn. I promise I will do better in the future!
 
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact I bet there is some line somewhere in the 100 pages long EULA that says something like "We are a despicable bunch of [redacted] and we reserve the right to remove the ownership of the content you actually only rented at any time in the future"
 
5:32 PM
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact I'm good at holding grudges but not that good
 
@Tinkeringbell Weak
@VLAZ If I got a dollar for every ping I received...
@SPArcheon Probably still illegal.
 
5:48 PM
ping -t andreas
Infinite money
 
6:05 PM
sudo ping -f VLAZ
 
6:39 PM
@AndreasmovedtoCodidact Well I never claimed to be strong? ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell I assumed the red plumage and the orange crest had that purpose?
