@AstroCB Ok, I'll see how it goes. First I have to check out a lazy new GL question.
 
12:15 AM
@AstroCB I've added it - thx
 
@Frank I hope it works well for you; if you find any issues with it, please report them.

Q: Special symbols break oneboxing in chat

AstroCBIt appears that the onebox (and link-detecting, for that matter) mechanism is broken by special symbols (see here). For example, the URL http://stackapps.com/questions/2177/stackexchange™-supercollider-freehand-circle™-editor-now-supported-on-every-s#comment10630_2177 is registered in chat (and ...

chmod 711 telkittyIf you are 14, and you want some guy's sexual attention, you need to looking for pedophiles. They are interested in underaged girls sexually ...

 
user202362
can't believe that question wasn't burnt down within 5 second ...
 
@chmod711telkitty Please remove the onebox.

are you new?
 
@chmod711telkitty No.

@Frank tl;dr: telkitty is a troll

But we like this troll.

I guess google prioritizes caching of pages that contain "boobs", "butt", or "14 year old guys".

Q: My flair isn't working!

ShokhetI put my Flair in the about box on my profile page for Meta.SE, and just discovered that it is not working. I went back to my profile page on stackexchange.com and copied the Flair HTML code from the Flair tab there and pasted it to my about box here (there was no difference between the old and ...

@Frank wait-- you're here?
 
@LynnCrumbling where would he go?
 
@lostsock anywhere in the world other than 10 minutes from me.
@lostsock crazy small world.
 
@LynnCrumbling Yes.
 
whereabouts?
 
Does it suprise you that I'm here?
 
2:16 AM
Not terribly.
 
@LynnCrumbling Why'd you ask?
 
just curious where you are with regard to the city.
 
Is this broken for anyone else?
@LynnCrumbling What city?
 
Just read the profile on gardening.. 3.1 isn't easy to come by unless you go south or east.
Lancaster.
 
@LynnCrumbling You live nearby?
 
2:17 AM
Township
 
Me too, not city.
Interesting.
 
up 501 a few minutes.
 
@LynnCrumbling From the city?
 
The script I linked to doesn't seem to work. Any replacements I could use?
@LynnCrumbling Cool.
 
2:21 AM
Which direction from the city are you?
 
@LynnCrumbling Mostly south, a little east. I don't like putting very descriptive locations online, case someone tries to find me.
 
@Frank I wasn't planning on getting too much more info out of you :) I can appreciate privacy.
 
@LynnCrumbling Pretty cool we're so close. So if you ask a question on GL, I'll have the most localized answer.
 
@Frank Indeed... and given the difference in locales of the group that spends time in here, it's pretty amazing.
 
@LynnCrumbling Might have even sat at the same traffic light without realizing it.
 
2:29 AM
@Frank Are you involved with the county park down that way?
 
@LynnCrumbling Which?
 
@Frank Lancaster County Park
 
Probably not. I don't often go to the park.
 
@Frank My wife's girl scout troop has had a couple of park employees that have done a great job with the girls. Just wondered if you knew any of them.
 
@LynnCrumbling Probably not.
But who knows.
 
HAHAHA
 
@LynnCrumbling Yeah, old Smokey's brought this one up like 4 times today.
 
@Frank Guess the OP's actually quoting text from the bible?
 
@LynnCrumbling Not exactly.

Hi guys. Does this chat room includes topic about moderation of the stach exchange, or is there a particular chat room for that?
 
@user2943324 It might include.
 
@user2943324 It can... There isn't really a set topic for this room. It's a bit wild around here.
There's this room, but I'm not sure how much use it gets these days:

 The Assembly

You know those boring town council meetings you never attend? ...
 
Well, I'm in a bit of dilemma regarding moderator actions in of the sites in the network. So how do I start this? Just start bitching until someone asks me to shut up?
 
@user2943324 Rant on meta and hope for the best
 
@Unihedron That's ... not very good advice.
 
4:41 AM
@AnnaLear Oh?
 
@Unihedron If you "rant" on meta, you pretty much will never have a good outcome.
I know what you're getting at, but when someone is trying to figure out a way to raise an issue, you might want to be a bit more careful about wording. :)
 
Hmm. You're right!
 
@user2943324 What's the issue? I don't need to know the site or the moderator, but just a general idea of what the problem is.
 
Where here is the deal. I asked a question on mathematics site. After posting the question I thought it is giving away too much about me. So I decided to remove it. But there was a reply. According to the site rule I could delete the question if there was a rep[ly with no up vote. But this reply had an up vote. So I down voted it (it was a wrong answer)
and then the system wouldn't let me delete it. Am I being a nini or do I have right to delete the post when the FAQ says that a question with no up vote answer can be deleted.
 
@user2943324 Hrm. That's a tricky one. Strictly speaking, once you post something and someone answers (and picks up upvotes), it shouldn't be entirely up to you to remove the post. You can edit it to reveal less about yourself. We can also disassociate it from your profile.
This doesn't sound like an issue with a moderator.
Having said that... I don't have the code in front of me, but I'm betting we check for existing upvotes, not the post score. Which, granted, is a bit weird.

Q: Please don't show "Delete" when a question can't actually be deleted

Jonathan SampsonPlease don't show the "delete" option when a question cannot be deleted. I just tried removing a dated-issue that is no longer relevant (asked within a couple of hours) only to be alerted that I cannot delete it because it has too many answers/responses. If I can't do it, don't let me think I can.

 
Well, when I said too much about me, it is really too much about my research which I don't like to share at this point. The question I felt gave too much information about a new direction of research. Since I couldn't delete my question, I modified it and put a note to please don't answer. But some saw the original version, restored it and removed my note about no more answer.
 
Yeah, I'm sorry, but that's not how our sites work. You can't retroactively change your mind like that and remove the content entirely. Edit it to make things less specific, sure. But you can't just put up a "Thanks everyone, nothing to see here" type of note.
 
Ultimately, a moderator intervened, restored my question to its original form, and banned me for 3 days for editing my post. It is hot topic, so I can ubderstand the interest, but not the moderator action
 
The moderator is acting in the interests of the site - preserving what looks like a valuable question that attracted upvoted answers.
If I'm looking at the right question... and keeping in mind that my math is rusty... it does look like a reasonable question for the site, and it doesn't seem to particularly give away much about your research. My best advice at this point would be to let this one lie and be more careful about what you post anywhere on the internet in the future if this sort of thing is a concern.
 
I tend to agree. At this point I feel safer to just shut up and not call attention to details. But unfortunately, I've decided to leave the network over this issue. My qualm is with the contract I signed when joining: a question with an answer with no upvote can be deleted. It says nothing about how many people voted up or down, For me that means zero net up votes.
 
5:07 AM
@user2943324 I'll have to look at the code to see what we're actually doing there. Might be a bug. Might be an under-explained technicality. Either way, I'm sorry to hear that you're leaving over this. I hope you reconsider after a while, once the proverbial dust settles.
 
[ SmokeDetector ] Bad keyword detected: Skin Care Answer on meta.stackexchange.com
 
@Unihedron There's a problem with that suggestion - it doesn't stop people from wanting to delete their posts, but it makes figuring out how to do it a lot more confusing. Most would just end up flagging for moderator... which isn't a huge improvement.
Maybe we could grey it out instead or something, though.
 
Hmmm.
Ask it on User Experience?
 
Not a bad idea, but I'm more interested in consistency within our sites. :) Right now, edit is greyed out/disabled if there's a suggested edit pending. (It used to be missing and that was confusing as hell. We have history to draw on here rather than guesswork.)
 
Gotcha! It's a good idea to grey it out with a tooltip then.
 
5:18 AM
I thank you all for your replies and wish you well in meta-stacking. Either the FAQ or the software, I feel, need to be changed so that users are aware exactly how it works.
 
I left myself a note to look into this. Might not be particularly soon... but I'll get to it eventually. When I'm on vacation, maybe. :)
 
@AnnaLear When I'm on vaction not even my wife can get me to do anything. And I mean anything ...For heaven's sake it is a vaction.
 
I am ... not very good at vacation. :) It's really a good time to catch up on a few side projects that I otherwise don't get time to work on. And video games, of course.

of course. good luck to u. signing off.
 
5:28 AM
@user2943324 Take care.
 
bye @user
 
@AstroCB yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Not sure if feasible/desired internally at the moment, but worth investigating, IMHO.
 
Morning!
 
@AnnaLear Make sure it's a CSS tooltip, not an OS/browser one. It should be there without having to hover for a second.
 
5:44 AM
@bjb568 I'm personally fine with default browser behaviour. Something's greyed out? You can wait a bloody second for the tool tip. ;) The real trick is getting something usable on a mobile view.

@AnnaLear Hover works fine on mobile. Especially with iOS 8.
 
@bjb568 ? css hover works on new iphone?
 
Not sure I'd call it "fine". Not to mention that there's more out there than iOS 8. Not saying this ain't solvable, mind. Just annoying.
 
@lostsock And old.
@AnnaLear Never have problems, I use the desktop version of everything.
 
@bjb568 Good for you. Doesn't mean we don't have to support a mobile version for others. ;)
On that note, time to crash. Later, all.

sipping my first cup of coffee, right about now
 
@JanDvorak That's what review is for. Fixing stuff, or fixing the homepage by removing crap.
 
The general modsensus is that deciding what is or isn't too minor is too subjective, and that if an edit is too minor, perhaps the editor would like to provide a better one?
 
Did you know that IT is only in the 8th place when it comes to coffee consumption per profession? We're slacking!
