Hey, it's midnight!
 
It's always midnight somewhere
 
Good night!

@Ramhound my neighbor had a jack rabbit (named Jack) once that just disappeared one day — Cole Johnson 29 secs ago
 
@Jan: You were so quick to link that, you forgot to flag it yourself. ;)
 
7:02 AM
> One periods so once every two a few a few a few several weeks and it does outstanding aspects my roots and I do like it.
 
@Unihedron Why would I flag myself? I did flag the post
 
That's a few too many "a few"s...
@Jan because flagging ourselves is fun
> I still bravery think I've got enough yak still a arriving back position of the car park staying on this is roots
 
*stabs a flag pole into himself*
 
@Jan I meant that you forgot to flag the post as well.
 
@Unihedron I flagged it
 
7:04 AM
When I reached the page and casted my flag, it was at 0 score.
 
But did you flag the flag pole!?
 
should I flag before posting here?
 
it's just a question of order
gone
 
7:07 AM
@ColeJohnson because you removed the OS info?
@ColeJohnson y u no liek paragraphs?
 
@JanDvorak that doesn't relate to the question at all?
1 liek == 5 reputation
 
This was vandalism, Cole - Your edit defaces the post
 
@InfiniteRecursion how does it deface the post
 
@ColeJohnson It defaces the post!
 
it lowers the legibility, at least
 
7:11 AM
Again, how?
 
it removes all paragraph breaks
 
I removed "doubly asked questions"
 
doesn't help
 
Yes, and doesn't provide a single improvement. The original "Why do file URLs have three slashes?" is far better than your improved version "Why is this?"
 
@ColeJohnson duplication isn't bad
 
7:13 AM
Ok, but it's not vandalism. It's just a bad edit
 
It's quite bad that it defaces it..
 
define "vandalism", @ColeJohnson
 
> (noun) action involving deliberate destruction of or damage to public or private property.
 
It's outright vandalism - clearly "defaces" the post
 
^
@Cole my personal experience tells me that only edit high-rated or old content when you're absolutely sure that it's necessary + improves the content.
 
7:14 AM
Is it not deliberately defacing the content. I genuinely thought that improved the post at the time.
 
@Cole: Your edit made and absolutely clear question with 128 upvotes unclear. How isn't it "destruction of public property"?
 
How was it unclear? I kept the original question; why are there 3 slashes?
 
@InfiniteRecursion Cole is arguing about the "deliberate" part. Apparently faceplanting on your keyboard isn't vandalism because you didn't mean to do it
or is he?
 
Changing `file://D:/Desktop/Book.pdf` to `file://D:/Book.pdf` is radical; Changing the formatting to without paragraphs is defacing it; Shortening the title which had no problem on the first place was invalid.

My two cents.
 
I am. I genuinely thought it was an improvement at the time. No mal intent and I'm being attacked as if it was because of the usage of the word "vandalism"
 
7:17 AM
"Deliberately" would be valid if you were listening to us and not defending your vandalism after all the explanations. You seem pretty determined and decided about your edit Cole.
 
@ColeJohnson accidentally faceplanting on your keyboard still results in vandalism suggested edits
 
I agree it was bad, but I'm arguing about being attacked because of it
 
Ignore it and move on, make better edits, become a famous editor for your future works..
 
No point crying over a rejected edit :)
 
7:19 AM
^^^
 
(Sorry if I put it too rude.)
 
Vandalism is intentional destruction of content. I'm pretty sure that wasn't what Cole was trying to do. Was there a previous discussion about this, or just the past 10 minutes on chat?
 
Past 10 minutes
 
It could be rejected for a different reason as well, actually.
Also,

How to Edit

► fix grammatical or spelling errors

► clarify meaning without changing it <-
 
^^ + Don't remove OS details from questions, these are helpful information for those who want to answer.
 
7:24 AM
Ok, I need to sleep now
 
Don't edit just to change "writing style" of authors from 2 paragraphs to one paragraph and vice-versa
 
By the way, "This edit changes too much in the original post; the original meaning or intent of the post would be lost." is the reason "Radical Change", vandalism is "This edit introduces spam, defaces the post in some way, or is otherwise inappropriate."
Good night @Cole!

@AdamBarak - at least choose your own throwaway e-mail address rather than using somebody else's. If we have to send you a mod message it will get sent to the e-mail address you provide. We can't know that it's not really your address so there's a real risk we'll inadvertently reveal some personal information to a random person. Do you really want that? — ChrisF ♦ 1 min ago

I've done the first two pages already but most of this user's edits suck
 
@Qantas94Heavy Are you doing rollbacks?
 
@InfiniteRecursion: where necessary
 
@Qantas94Heavy Ok, I will also clean up, am free now :)
 
9:25 AM
Up to middle of page 4, I think you should work from the back :)
 
@Qantas94Heavy Ok, I will start from the end
 
@InfiniteRecursion: suggestions is a better page, revisions include the user's own edits
 
@Qantas94Heavy Ok, I will scan the user's suggestions backwards

@Sam Huh? You were my sock, weren't you? :P

well, kinda
 
Sam
@ProgramFOX Oh yeah, I remember now, so that's what those "mind control glasses" do...
 
@JanDvorak Why the uncertainity?
 
there was an approve vote
 
9:47 AM
@Qantas94Heavy I was surprised it was rejected... at the very least she separated the LogCat :(
 
@AndrewT. All issues need to be fixed. And the logcat was fixed in the post by the OP.
 
@InfiniteRecursion I... didn't see OP fixed it, he only added. But I take it that there were still many needed to be fixed.

Q: JavaScript function not working after Ajax call

ankit maheshwariI am trying to call a JavaScript function from a JSP page which is Ajax-called but onclick is not working. Could someone please tell me what should I use in place of onclick?

The comments are crazy
 
9:56 AM
@Qantas94Heavy Please post some code :D
 
@Qantas94Heavy: During cleanup, I saw that the user keeps adding "thanks" and "please help me" to all posts. Did you flag for mod attention?
 
@InfiniteRecursion I notified him in a comment, we'll see if that improves things first
@NehaShukla: hi, I've noticed that you've been adding inline code spans (like this) to posts when editing; these are only meant for actual code in sentences. Also, please make sure to fix as many of the issues in a post that you can find -- stuff like "thanks in advance" and "please help" isn't necessary. Thanks! — Qantas 94 Heavy 35 secs ago
Where's the fun when you need it?
 
@Qantas94Heavy Yes, let's see how it goes.

Just found a person who constantly deletes his own questions..
 
@Unihedron Rage quit?
 
@Inf: Nope, they're just bad and after I question them about the lack of effort with the autocomment, they just delete it and try again.
 
@Unihedron flag something posted by the user with a moderator flag
 
Can't, he deleted everything he posted. I suppose he's not too far from a Q-ban. stackoverflow.com/users/3996124/mkam

@InfiniteRecursion simple recursive functions can be derecursed into standard loops... and that's usually impossible with infinite recursion...
best example for that is fibonacci function.
can be written recursive or as for-loop.

@Vogel612 ok, I know that as iteration. Often known as recursion v/s iteration
 
@bjb568 I don't think mods are willing to delete a high upvoted accepted answer that's so old though.
 
@InfiniteRecursion and derecursed ~= iterative.
it's basically a bad pun on the recursion part of your name ;(
