@ShadowTheSpringWizard As long as you "ping" JNat in the message (even if they're not actively in the room), they'll get through the backlog soon enough. :)

Folks, we used to have a Startups.SE stack. Looks like it's not around any more.
Do we still have a good place for startup-related questions somewhere on SE ?

@NickAlexeev if memory serves it failed twice
And I don't think there's a replacement in network
 
3:39 AM
@JourneymanGeek Is there a stack where I can post questions about startups (funding terms, success rate, etc)? More general business stack which covers sartups among other kinds of business?
 
4:24 AM
meta.stackexchange.com/users/1347310/dan-nayawo profile makes no sense and just suggested a vandalism edit
 
4:54 AM
@NickAlexeev Personal Finance & Money could fit some of those questions
 
5:17 AM
@starball looks more like a clueless person rather than a vandalism...
 
@MetaAndrewT. fair. I overreacted.
 
5:43 AM
@NickAlexeev I don't know but asking which site the question would be on topic is on topic on MSE

Hey Tink, how are you?
Already at work this early?
 
6:23 AM
Yeah, office day. Been here since 7, driving ahead of rush hour traffic ;)
And you?
 
On my commute still
I moved to Texel, so I have a pretty long commute these days
 
Texel sounds like a text based version of a pixel or voxel >_>
@Luuklag I hope someone else is driving :D
 
The traindriver is
I leave at 5am, bike for an hour to the ferry, take a 20 min ferry, thrn bike another 10 mins and take a 2 and a quarter hour trainride
Followed by a short walk to the office
Luckily i work from home 4 days a week
 
@Luuklag Oooh, but that's a nice place to live :D
 
6:34 AM
@V2Blast nope, it doesn't ping them and they'll get no notifications.
@Luuklag and in the other two days (one day?) you spend more time reaching office than actually working in the office. :D
But what's going on? Why the constant moving around? Are you OK with it?
@MetaAndrewT. nope. I'm with @starball on this, looks like a troll. Better be nuked out of MSE.
 
We only work 5 days a week @sha
About equal time yeah, just a long day
But our trains are perfect to work in most of the times.
So I just put in a 12 hour day
@ShadowTheSpringWizard my wife got a new job
 
@Luuklag So one day a week isn't that bad, but still sounds silly. Well hope you'll get back to somewhere you can reach office in 15 minutes like in the past. ;)
@Luuklag ohhh, so that's great! Awesome that you could keep your job when moving then.
Thought it's your job that throw you around like a ball.
 
@Luuklag what the heck that's so long
 
@Tinkeringbell any place that isn't your own place is a nice place to live in. :P
 
hm
meta.stackexchange.com/questions/310631/… I am slightly tempted to edit this to past tense
(was spammer bumped, I bumped off the spammer)
 
6:46 AM
@JourneymanGeek pointless, you'll have to edit essentially 99% of the old posts in MSE.
 
:D
And? :D
 
(I didn't say it was a good idea or I was going to do it)
 
So go ahead, I won't stop you. :D

Anyone have any idea what this image is or how it's relevant to the post?
 
@Mithical I've seen similar. It's usually someone ordering through a webform, filling in the field about what should be engraved into something with 'no engraving please/thanks' and then that text being engraved ... Instead of just leaving the field blank, these people add some fluffy niceness that doesn't belong there ;)
 
@Mithical its an example of useless fluff
though a little too 'this is not a pipe'
 
@Tinkeringbell Ah, that makes sense. Thanks.

...now, what the heck happened to the "paste a link" in the image uploader?
 
10:00 AM
just noticed this.

@Mithical >_>
works for me
 
and yet, it's not live on the editor on MSE
 
@JourneymanGeek Doesn't work for me either. The mountain is there but "paste an image" is not a hyperlink and it should say "paste an image or link"
 
12:12 PM
If you paste in a link it'll just switch modes
 
12:29 PM
That's not very intuitive ...

@ShadowTheSpringWizard JNat has their ways. :P
 
3:22 PM
@V2Blast search for their name? :D
hmm something interesting... for the pronoun "they" is it "has" or "have"?
 
It's singular "they", so you'd use "has". Example: Each staff member added their explanation to the post.

@Luuklag k
 
5:41 PM
@Spevacus @ShadowTheSpringWizard I think it'd still be "have"...? (But I'm not an expert on that)
 
If it was "They (has/have) their ways" it'd be "They have" but...
I dunno.
 
6:15 PM
@ShadowTheSpringWizard kk
 
6:50 PM
@Glorfindel Is this a blocked migration? Also, I remember posting a comment on it; is it a false memory or was it indeed posted but deleted?
 
7:08 PM
@SonictheAnonymousHedgehog yes, I tried to migrate it, that failed and it ended up like this. I don't see any deleted comments.
 
@Glorfindel Huh, must be a false memory then. Also, do remember that automatic suspensions imposed when an account is destroyed for spam or abuse or deleted as "no longer welcome" don't carry a moderator message with them.
 
But that used to be 14 days, right? Not 365.
 
21
A: Could we have longer automatic suspensions for destroyed profiles, and better communication with these users?

Adam LearThanks for the request! Starting with the next build, users destroyed for posting spam and users deleted as "no longer welcome to participate" will be automatically suspended from 365 days.

 
that's after June 2022 :)
 
@Glorfindel Oh, right...
 
7:11 PM
Don't worry, I'm having a really hard time keeping up with changes like that ...
 
Well, one thing I don't like is that when a user deletes and recreates a manually-suspended profile, they cease to have access to the prior moderator message regarding their suspension, so if one goes into their inbox they won't find it there.
Would you agree with a feature request for those prior mod messages to continue to be visible to recreated profiles (or be auto-resent on recreation)?
 
I would prefer a soft-delete of accounts, just like for posts, except that it's probably not feasible GDPR-wise ...
 
:/ Maybe, if a user has any moderator messages that they haven't seen, they should need to view them before deleting their profile on that site.
That doesn't help the situation where the profile is deleted and that message is lost to them forever, but
 
Now that I think about it, one cause where a user suddenly gets suspended for a long time and doesn't have access to a moderator message is if another account with a suspension is merged into that account. When accounts are merged, suspension periods are added up, and as it was the other account (merge source) that was suspended and got sent the mod message, the merge target won't have access to it since the merge source is effectively deleted.
There have been instances in the past of users engaging in good-hand-bad-hand sockpuppetry and getting caught after the bad-hand accounts had already been sanctioned on their own.
