@PM2Ring ah oops! Looks like it was just the draft, and we can't have the body as query string parameter. Will delete this answer. — Shadow Wizard Love Zelda 20 secs ago
@PM2Ring ^

@JNat can we get some updates on this meta.stackexchange.com/q/395096/339911 ?

@αλεχολυτ no updates at the moment, no. But it's on my radar ;)
(talked through it internally with other folks just yesterday)

May I again inquire how long this question will remain featured? It just accumulates more and more downvotes, the 40 answers have said everything that can be said and the information content isn't so huge that people haven't had time to really digest it. — NoDataDumpNoContribution 1 min ago
no, no. keep it up and let it attract more downvotes :)

On Meta’s questions page there is a count of the number of questions. ATM, I see “99,958 questions” (closing in on one-hundred-thousand). Do those users with the 10k privilege to see deleted questions see the same count?
 
@ElementsInSpace yup
 
@JourneymanGeek So, are deleted questions counted or not?
 
I don't think so
where's a spammer when you need one :D
 
The video itself is ok, but there are some great examples from various language families in the vast comment thread. And the comments are mostly quite civil and intelligent. I figured it might be of interest to some of the regulars in this room, since many people here speak (or at least read & write) multiple languages.
 
10:40 AM
@JourneymanGeek The question index number is already over four-hundred-thousand, so that makes sense.
 
Ah!
But I think questions and answers might share indexes (citation needed)
 
*indices
 
indici. :D
You get what I mean tho
 
@ElementsInSpace I'm almost certain they aren't counted.
I could temporarily delete my only MSE question, for Science...
 
I’m pretty sure answers get their own index, because their URL’s have: a/<question-index>/<answer-index>
 
10:46 AM
also assuming the number is calculated live and not cached
 
That too
I wouldn't be surprised if it's only calculated once per day.
 
@PM2Ring I think I’ve watched that video before. I’m a fan of NativLang.
 
I only speak English. But I studied French in highschool, many decades ago, and can mostly read it ok. But I've studied linguistics, and can recognise a lot of languages when spoken or written. I recently discovered Dave Huxtable, a linguist, polyglot, and accent expert. youtube.com/@DaveHuxtableLanguages And Geoff Lindsey youtube.com/@drgeofflindsey
 
@PM2Ring Geoff Lindsay is amazing.
 
10:57 AM
@JNat thanks for that. Maybe you or someone else from the team know the answer for this and can post it?
 
^ I think that was the first one I saw from Geoff. I was instantly a fan. :)
 
@αλεχολυτ will find someone who can answer ;)
 
@αλεχολυτ why asking JNat? Don't see them involved in that bug, or other similar bugs.
 
@PM2Ring Some of my other favourite language channel YouTubers are: Simon Roper (for Old English), Jackson Crawford (for Old Norse), and Luke Ranieri / polymathy) (for Latin & Ancient Greek).
 
11:03 AM
@ElementsInSpace nope, the proof is that you can see all the questions by going through the pages. So the count is accurate.
@PM2Ring ceiling fan?
;-)
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda I don’t have time to go through all the pages (there are thousands of them).
 
@ElementsInSpace enough to go to the last, which is page 2000, and with 50 per page, and 8 questions in that last page, you reach indeed 99,958 questions.
That's what mods see as well, I think? They have to go to different list to see the deleted questions as well.
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda they are the only one from staff here. And turned out that they actually in touch with the topic. See discussion above.

My favourite song about crows is The Twa Corbies. If you're not Scottish, it might be a wee bit hard to understand. ;) But there's a brief translation at the end.
 
@αλεχολυτ ah, fair.
Actually there are also two developers, Adam and balpha.
 
11:23 AM
@PM2Ring That’s some great harp playing.
 
Maeve is excellent. And she plays well with others.
 
and staff can review the flags.. Sure, and there are still enough hands to do that ...
 
11:43 AM
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda teeeechnically, there's far more, but they don't hang out with us :D
 
@PM2Ring honestly I don't know half the time what people are saying
 
@M.A.R. the other half the time you wish they didn't ? :D
 
mutters something under his breath
 
And be grateful, I was going to send in Ellie Monty instead....

@rene the CEO can.
@JourneymanGeek I mean pingable here.
 
Yes, When being pedantic, I try not to be outpedanted
 
@ShadowWizardLoveZelda I'm pretty sure he would find the flagging mod UX confusing.
 
1:52 PM
@rene and act to improve it! ;)
 
long time no see, sorry I could not bring better tidings ...
