someone upvoted my old proposal for the scouter hat in the old winter bash proposal thread.
seems people are starting looking around for bash info.
 
Do you get to know which hats are unlocked by which actions or are they easter eggs you have to discover yourself?
 
It was part known, part surprise the last year

@euphoriaoverlord comment flags are the lowest priority flags. This means if there's more pressing matters, such flags will not get processed
additionally flagging "too chatty" is problematic on meta, since meta is different...
 
9:34 AM
@euphoriaoverlord Maybe your flags are harder to be handled. What did you actually flag? My flags goes through being marked as helpful pretty quickly.

And as Vog said, since this is Meta "too chatty" flags would probably be declined unless it's really problematic. Which it hardly will be (not for seven messages in a row at least)
 
@Unihedron are you trying to make the guy jealous :P
 
@DroidDev Eh, just a comparison. Didn't mean to bring jealousy.

@euphoriaoverlord Sometimes too chatty flags are handled within seconds. My conversation with Won't was instantly nuked when someone flagged them :(
Nov 14 at 15:09, by bluefeet
soo many comments to flag as too chatty
 
@Oded Yeah, I suspected that a new day would straighten out the log.
 
Discrepancies usually are, which is why I didn't post a report.
It was very reproducible yesterday, and a line drop like that doesn't happen that often.
Sure, the system self-corrects, but it could be there is an underlying problem that needs fixing anyway. :-)
 
Aye - though difficult to debug currently
 
10:26 AM
@Oded I'll just keep pinging you and Marc whenever I come across it then, presumably it is easier on the day. :-)
 
Aye - should be. Thanks

@Oded I confide that you good heart, strong sense of justice, iron will, and sense of duty (not to forget your vulnerability to compliments) will entrust you with the holy quest of making your user happy by having a purple horn hat, at the cost of convincing your co-workers with elegant diplomacy, civil rhetoric and a big, wooden mace.

@ShadowWizard I still hate the top bar. I was just thinking about that.
It's annoying that "to give up complaining" is often mistaken for "to get used to".

yesterday, by Jason C
No, it's not fake.
Period.
I have a question.
Why do web designers like tall, narrow pages with big margins on the sides?
Do they not realize screens keep getting wider, not taller?
 
@JasonC Negative space. It isn't as intimidating.
 
Like 95% of web sites I see look better when I rotate the display and put my monitor on its side.
@LynnCrumbling Yes, being able to clearly see all of the information I'm looking for at a glance is certainly intimidating.
 
user259867
@JasonC Large number of characters per line hurts readability.
 
4:16 PM
I guess I just don't understand this resistance to design for wide screens. It's almost as bad as continuing to design for 640x480.
 
user259867
So, the columns can only be so wide. Then it's the question of how many columns you want to have, before it becomes a newspaper.
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii Yeah, if you can't read. Besides, you can put stuff on the sides. Like this chat interface is great.
 
user259867
Yes, a bigger sidebar would be nice. Also, I have a Chrome extension that puts most recent comments there.
 
user259867
(Useful for tracking meta flames.)
 
But e.g. SO has no real reason to say, not put the comments beside the posts.
Oh that's neat.
 
The long lines hurt readability thing; is that a natural human limit or a consequence of always being exposed to narrow lines?
 
user259867
BTW the redesign made meta.SO wider. The "content" div used to be 980px, now it's 1000px.
 
Yeah I actually really like the meta; I was pleasantly surprised when I loaded it this morning.
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii I've actually seen that article before. It doesn't touch on why that limit exists though. I.e. can longer lines be made to be more readable by constant exposure to longer lines.
 
4:22 PM
Haha, I did not know about this Google easter egg: search for 'anagram'

Lol
 
user259867
Neat, but I get a flash of code (CSS it seems) when clicking the anagram link, before the page renders. (Chrome). Anyone else has it?
 
@Rafflesiaarnoldii Yeah I also noticed that (also Chrome), but figured it was just me.
Ah, it only happens when you use the anchor query form (his link is https://www.google.com/#q=anagram).
Hey SO totally uses tables for layouts in the comments. Isn't that like, a web design party foul?
Props for stickin' it to the CSS man.

Hey, you guys seem good with browser scripts. If I want to see what the site looks like, in chrome, with comment flag icons next to comment vote icons, without hand editing every table in the inspector, are chrome content scripts the right place to start?
