Can't say that's the best possible comment @Unihedron
 
It's an opinionated thread, and I'm just adding my $0.01
 
12:25 PM
oh no, my Den was taken over :(
 
STFU
 
uh oh Tavern too

We're doing it in javascript
 
Oh gawd, it's here too.
Where's @MarcGravell when you need him?
 
12:26 PM

Q: Feeds user has gone crazy

ProgramFOXIf we post any message (both in Tavern on the Meta and Shadow's Den, and also the chat.SE Sandbox, probably more rooms), the Feeds user replies "this is why we can't have nice things". Can this please be fixed?

 
Say @silentkiller, do as your name implies and get rid of this Feeds user :p

UnihedronThey're not only participating, but instead invading... Spamming with links to this thread... We're doomed!

 
yes, yes, laugh at the stupid developer

@Bart lols
 
Can we point as well @MarcGravell?
 
we're not laughing. This is a cry for help

you've created a monster and we want you to slay it too
 
I feel like we can't have nice things
:(
 
who did this..??

Why can't we have nice things?
 
12:29 PM

all nice is gone :(

could my chat flag allowance be reset please, btw?

@Bart solved. done.. :)

but who did this..?? :P
 
@Unihedron Feeds is unbannable, it seems.
 
also, TIL there's such a thing as a chat flag daily limit
 
Yeah, don't waste it on Feeds.
 
now you tell me...
 
12:37 PM
Then again, we never say anything offensive here in the Tavern @R.MartinhoFernandes Good guys is what we are ....
 
I just earned 200 rep from this chaotic event... xD
 
Hmm, why can't we get this nicer plink sound on chat.SO?
 
Get your hands off of our plink

Oh! 24 score! One more to a Nice Answer badge! Oh! Oh!
 
But currently it's mostly too cr*p (and old) to migrate
 
(stares at post score)
 
@Unihedron Heh, I had the same on a PPCG answer with a score of 24. After two weeks, I finally got the 25th vote :D
 
1:09 PM

@Unihedron if it will reach 44 and the accepted answer would still be 22, you'll also get a shiny gold badge :D

Instead of using Math.random(), it's using a GET request to random.org.

^ You can't.
That breaks it; believe me, I've tried a bunch of different ways.
 
Huh, my picture is broken.
 
The simplest way to fix it would be to get rid of the AJAX request and just use Math.random(), but that's usually not very random.

Aren't you 94?... (raises head)
 
@Bart it is...

@Unihedron :D No, I just wanted to put it at the maximum age possible.
 
Still awesome job though.

How to shoot yourself in your foot on Meta SO, step 1: Give your post the title "PLEASE READ THE WHOLE POST. Is anyone else unhappy with the way stack overflow works?" when trying to ask why comments require 50 rep.
 
3:18 PM
▲That should be a self-answered question on Meta SO
 
Actually, a long time ago I started writing a blog post like that @InfiniteRecursion. How to get the worst reception possible on Meta. Never finished it though.
 
@Bart OP remains remarkably silent.
 
I guess the OP has established we are all evil cuz downvotes @Stijn
 
@Bart You know what's even better? If the OP does have 50 rep...
 
I prefer the "WHY AM I BANNED??!?!" posts by users that aren't banned @Unihedron :)

It's never too late @Bart. Write a self-answer on MSO. Lots of people will benefit from it.

@Unihedron he said it... twice
 
Home improvement indeed! Try adding the wall switch @uni :P

Wrong! Wall switches beside light switches are magic!

So now if your computer slows down, you know what to do. The secret lies in a wall switch beside the light switch.

A mod fixed the question, finally.

He deleted Bart's comment as well. Aww.
 
Question fixed, comment obsolete. Fair enough.

Because Bart didn't follow his own advice. He screamed in the tavern "NOT ENOUGH WALL SWITCH!"

I just wanted to ask what's up with the profile page makeover, is it still happening, or what?
 
I hope it doesn't happen.
 
I won't be able to open SO in office anymore, if it does. People will think I am at some kind of social website and they will eat me alive.
 
@DroidDev :O
 
Why are you so negative about it?
 
SO is love SO is life
 
5:13 PM
Because we all are programming geeks and we hate anything that is not related to programming geek culture and we think profile page makeover doesn't relate at all
 
g'morning
 
Great idea, bad execution
 
@SomeKittens Let's see if that reduces the usual amount of research spent before posting
 
@DJDavid98 how so?
 
@SomeKittens I like the idea of runnable code snippets, but I don't like the editor and the markdown it creates. Could be better.
Also, many people mentioned that more external library support should be added, and I agree
 
5:21 PM
runnable.com <- what about something like that?
 
@DJDavid98 They're programmers, not designers. This is a proof-of-concept: they just want to see if it works well before they implement it.
 
@AstroCB With some re-thinking on the design I think it'll do good, but jsFiddle is still more popular, and some people might just ignore it and keep on fiddling.
 
Who wants a page of text with the source code unnecessarily anyway?
Fiddle is still the way to go I believe, with the relevant code on page.
 
@DJDavid98 So let them. No one is forcing anyone to do anything: hosting the snippets onsite makes them less susceptible to link rot.
@Unihedron They're discussing "collapsible" functionality to allow you to only show the relevant parts.
 
If jsFiddle goes down, all past answers that used it on SO will be damaged, so unless a mass editing spree moves code from fiddles to answers before the apocalypse, we're still looking at a lot of questions that are going to be damaged anyway.
Why doesn't stack exchange just take over jsfiddle instead
It'd be a win-win
 
5:30 PM
JSFiddle already nuked a lot of anon fiddles
 
Maybe there could be a new stack overflow login on jsfiddle that ties into the se account, and you could store your fiddles under your se identity
 
@DJDavid98 Or they could just have a commercial partnership like they do with Imgur.
The only problem is that it might not be worth the money: pictures are network-wide, but HTML/CSS/JavaScript are only used in a few places.
 
The jsfiddle creator himself asked if anything could be done to help integrate it with the site better
 
I work here: runnable.com
We'd love to work with SO to embed runnable snippets of everything

I've noticed when posting your question, if you finish and are ready to post, you either a) haven't thot about your question enough (there's a dup!), b) don't know how to ask questions that are solvable, or c) aren't smart enough or have enough background knowledge to be able to understand a good answer. Of course there's the 0.1% of well researched and well asked questions which are too hard to get a decent answer.
