Why does this have two downvotes? I get it if you don't like the design or something, but you don't have to downvote: the unobscured, properly formatted source is there for a reason. If you want to change it, change it.

@hichris123 If you need to dump your CVs away fast, unfiltered CV queue is best.
Or if you want to "Leave Open" vote a question, CV with specific filter.
@bjb568 Nah, SEDE is better.
Else just roam the homepage/tag pages.
I've closed 10+ questions already right now.
@hichris123 Eh, if you write a queue-like UI, I might use SEDE.

the title is okey-ish, but the body... oh the body
Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. — Unihedron Jul 22 at 6:17
Hey, that's me from a month ago! Hi me!
@hichris123 The OP sounds like some sort of robot. It didn't sound like he was responding to others.
1:31 AM
Oh, hi @Andy! Go close those questions.

Although the OP wasn't specifically asking for tutorials.
Good point. (flags answers)

@bjb568 I overhauled the search button script: I know you don't really want it, but thanks for the suggestions.

@AstroCB It was a good edit, but he could had edited the title as well, it's "How to".
@hichris123 ughh, set the self-destruct attribute on those links
@Unihedron "Already implemented a CORS filter in my Java application" vs "How to implements CORS with Javascript, jQuery?" /me no compute
also, he's not asking "how to", he already has a potential solution, just need to fix "but when I use the $.ajax() it returns the problem of CORS"

Every day, I find more reasons why this would be useful:
Q: Link to a review in the review queue from the flag status page

AstroCBSo, say you flag an post as VLQ and it heads off to the review queue. A little while later, you head over to your flags to check the status and see that it is disputed. So, you go back to the answer and see that it has a comment from a reviewer that is typical for link-only answers (which it was...

@Shog told me this:
Linking to completed reviews from a flag state is reasonable. — Shog9 ♦ Jul 17 at 1:54
2:00 AM
@AstroCB Shog can take years to make a change happen
Does that mean it's a work in progress or "Could work, but we're not doing that?"
Yay, closed!
@Braiam Oh, I wondered why that feature-request randomly got more upvotes all of a sudden.
2:06 AM
Ooh, good, @animuson is here.

I can now poke him to close more questions. :D
@Braiam basically, yeah.

If you need visibility, you can poke people here to go over there.
@bjb568 NO.
@hichris123 YEEEES.
@bjb568 /s/span/spam
@hichris123 I'm not sure about spam, but it's a terrible answer since the questioner never asked about using another tool or anything
@bjb568 Spam has bad consequences: that's not SE-definition spam.
It has to be overt and @SmokeDetector-worthy spam for a flag to be approved.
2:21 AM
@iStimple the [status-no] was to this:

@hichris123 YEEEES.
I'm busy stealing reviews from regular users.

I like the LQP queue.
@hichris123 Your syntax is wrong. s/^\///; s/$/\//
@Doorknob ?
2:35 AM
@hichris123 It should be s/span/spam/. :P
@animuson Go close those questions now!
@Doorknob whatever. :p
@hichris123 flag - rude | offensive
@animuson No! Mods like to say Looks OK when it most certainly does not.
I barely ever click Looks Ok
2:43 AM
@animuson Then why have half of my VLQ flags been declined since mods started reviewing them?
@AstroCB If they're declined then a moderator declined it from the flags queue, not the Low Quality Posts queue. Review currently only dismisses as disputed or helpful.
@AstroCB b.c VLQ is deprecated almost
downvote or NAA instead
@animuson Interesting: so, if mod reviews are binding and they vote Looks OK from the LQP queue, is the flag just disputed?
@AstroCB Unfortunately, yes. For really egregious ones that I go "why the hell is this in review?" I'll click through to the post and physically decline the flag.
@Doorknob Actually that is exactly the reason I mentioned that those comments were coming rather than making it myself. — Marty 33 secs ago
yeah yeah yeah sure
2:52 AM
@Doorknob E2LTS
@animuson Haaaay. I like reviewing LQP.
@animuson Don't forget to review-ban the robos!
@bjb568 I thought the system figured that out on its own.
But maybe I am misstating its detection of failed audits.
@bjb568 Hm. Argument pro and con?
It seems to meet the current Too Broad close definition to me. What am I missing?
@tchrist There's no reason to close that.
@tchrist Yeah… so? Closing new questions is more important.
Mostly, but I am agnostic here.
Perhaps someone thinks a broken-window policy improves the site. I don’t know.
It’s a bit OCD to be chasing down ancient questions that were left open under a different culture, and trying to get them closed.
That said, you just look at the huge list of things that got truly deleted despite hundreds of votes, rather than historical locks, and it is startling what used to be considered ok.
Oh wait, you don’t even have 10k. You have no idea what I’m talking about. Sorry!
This wiki review makes no sense to me:

@tchrist Weird.

Tim PostI like the intent behind this. It is a problem, I see it too often as I attend to the things folks send through our support email and I've often thought about ways to curtail this behavior that don't make the system any harder to document and explain to someone else than it currently is. As prop...

@Cupcake Nice idea, so I upvoted it. That's one upvote for that post from chat through a referrer.
Vandalizing how? They may not have been the best tag wiki edits, but MCVE does stand for Minimal, Complete, and Verifiable Example. Soooo, why do we need to look at it?
A: Impose a 24 hour voting freeze on questions being discussed on Meta

Ben VoigtCan we please stop pretending that the Meta effect is undesirable or harmful? If a post that deserves a downvote comes to my attention, I'll give it the downvote it deserves. If it deserves an upvote, I'll upvote. So should everyone else. That is the intended use of voting. At worst the meta...

I don't think voting is a problem.

@mehow @Unihedron morning
@mehow Morning!
@JanDvorak Good to see English spam, yesterday we had Turkish spam and lots of smoke
now imagine we had both at once
@InfiniteRecursion Turkish Delights are delicious candy :)
7:10 AM
@Unihedron perhaps, but that Sumer guy was annoying as hell
I am thinking of asking a question on meta but I am not sure it would be a good fit.... the thing I noticed is that the more you participate in both SO and META the more youre exposing yourself to being a target of "random" downvotes.. Ie. if you don't participate as much you will receive less downvotes...
I remember when I first started and didn't participate in meta and just once in a while answered a question or two on SO... I never have had any "random" downvotes but almost two years later I occasionally encounter "random" downvotes which is becoming really annoying.. I know you can just not worry and move on but this is happening more frequently now and just annoys the shit out of me
@Unihedron Unfortunately the common factor was limited to "turkish", no delight :(
It seems that some people are taking things too personally and in the spirit of a good Q&A site the downvotes on GOOD answers are unexplainable
It's a slap in the face when you spend your own time to build this great library of good questions and answers and someone who doesn't like "you" just goes around downvoting your efforts... that system is broken in my opinion
@mehow meta = MSE or MSO or both?
@mehow Are you sure it's because of your meta participation? I've also received a handful of downvotes so far on older answers that were well-received without previous downvotes but I never thought of linking it to Meta activity. Just the longer you spend time on SO, the higher the chance of receiving a random downvote.
7:14 AM
I'm sorry, @mehow, I know it's you who is speaking, but all I can hear is Laszlo.
Silence is the key to all the happiness :)
@mehow I actively participate on MSO, no downvotes on SO due to meta yet; though my answers on SO are not remotely close to yours in terms of votes and quality.
@Shog9 Heya Need help

I have made custom flag for mod attention already
7:22 AM
When in doubt flag it out
@TheLittleNaruto Instead of flagging a Stack Overflow post, flag a chat message for moderator attention. That will probably be handled faster.
[ SmokeDetector ] All-caps title: LEXICAL ANALYSIS on cs.stackexchange.com
@ProgramFOX I flagged chat message only
@Stijn well, I am linking it to meta but it's completely different than the "meta-effect" as my questions/answers are not really discussed on meta. I think its due to the fact that my username appears in too many places, some have called me harsh and taken things too personally which I find to be the only way to explain random downvotes on good answers...
So many vandalism edits...

@TheLittleNaruto ah, ok
