@Behaviour HATS ARE AWESOME. Winter Bash will end in 0 days, 0 hours, 0 minutes and 41 seconds. :(
@UndotheSnowman HATS ARE AWESOME. Winter Bash will end in 0 days, 0 hours, 0 minutes and 23 seconds. :(
12:00 AM
still never got my Red Baron ;(
huh, server time off?
It's over already, earlier than scheduled. We've been cheated! Or maybe Smokey's time is indeed off...
@UndotheSnowman WINTERBASH IS OVER! :(
12:01 AM
Farewell, pirate doorknob. Rest in peace.
I shall nevar refresh chat
@Doorknob冰 It refreshes itself.
not yet
So will you remove the 冰?
12:03 AM
yup, and change the avatar picture back to a regular doorknob
@Undo What is your server time?
noooooooooo chat just reloaded :(
hmm, the other chatrooms haven't yet though
12:31 AM
mm... I still have my hat
aaaaaand gone
!find youtube and it's gone
Now added as a bot command.
12:36 AM
my hants are typing words
Merge branch 'asdfasjkfdlas/alkdjf' into sdkjfls-final
I miss hats already...
We all do.
But winter and the catnip penalty are going away soon, so hats must go with it.
12:43 AM
At least I can keep my snow
For a while.
@Doorknob I already know that feeling
1:24 AM
Anyone want some spam?
^ yeah, I noticed it when trying to crosscheck an issue reported on android.se... wondering why there is no "flag" link there :(
@AndrewT. Open an issue on the Google Code issue page. :P
@hichris123 too meta
1:40 AM
Hey, no word from SE yet
1:53 AM
@Frank No word on what?
oh you wouldn't know
Shog, always insightful and helpful apperance
I like birds as much as the next guy, but … a song? …
1:58 AM
the vid is pre '80 @bjb... television just became a thing
I think all the religion sites do
> but in my town that means about 5 hours … if you want to add on additional study or work, it will be on top of a full curriculum not designed to accommodate such.
(wanted to say "some of religion sites do", but was superseded by Frank's)
2:08 AM
> education incorporates an awareness of religion and spirituality across the board. The integration of a Jewish identity into a young person's identity is a constant and consistent process.
> or these reasons, it would be very difficult for an Orthodox Jewish child, growing up in a public school with many secularized non-Orthodox friends immersed in American popular culture, to maintain a solid Orthodox hashkafa and remain observant into adulthood.
So because crickets, they feel like the world is wrong and they must force into their child their beliefs, shielding them from the reality of culture and limiting their educational time?
As I child myself, I can only see this as abusive.
Well you can't even spell right, so...
hay, I choose to spaaail rong
But I can spell correctly if I so choose.
It creates contrast of tone.
"As I child myself,"
Why that^^?
grammarz bad in yuo
@Frank he meant to say "kid"
2:19 AM
> a young human being below the age of puberty or below the legal age of majority.
I do fit that.
but you used bad grammar.
What, how?
@bjb568 this one:
> kid (verb) to deceive as a joke
something like "as I kid myself thinking that"
As a child, not as I child.
That's a typo.
On small keyboards, when I try to type 'to', I fat finger it and it comes out "typo"
2:26 AM
Tried fat fingering.
No werk.
ur using a nicer keyboard then
@bjb568 it says majority not maturity
@Sompuperoo Yes
2:33 AM
Tavern Law #1: @bjb568 uses bad grammar
What's #0?
@bjb568 The Tavern must not be original
Too bad, I just posted a message nobody else has ever came up with before
2:45 AM
@Sompuperoo WINTERBASH IS OVER! :(
No moar hats :(
Nope :(
Is off topic to demand an answer that actually answers what you asked?
@Gemtastic Off-topic for what?
@bjb568 SO
2:52 AM
As a question edit? (no)
Or comment? (on answers)
A comment on an answer that's almost what I'm asking for
But not quite since it just links to another answer and then just slaps some code on there
Consider editing question to make it more clear, or offer bounty if you want good answer / more popularity.
If you want elaboration, auto comment: "Could you add more detail to your answer? While short answers may help by pointing in the right direction, it would be helpful to have further explanation."
I think the question is pretty clear: "Why does <a> do this?"
2:56 AM
Somebody needs to edit FIDDLE out of all that guy's answers. O_O
@Frank Why does it require login?
@bjb568 cuz.
@bjb568 Interestingly enough he's got 2 of them in that answer...
@Gemtastic and no more
3:02 AM
I don't really know why I've upset him though. Making it seem like I've posted 100 questions where I keep demanding people answering why the code does what it does, when in fact, I've only asked two questions; the one I posted above and this.
Thus, my question here: is it off topic to ask them for the answer I'm looking for, or is why code behaves the way it does off topic?
this and that. Not this and this.
Maybe I just shouldn't ask stuff. :(
@Gemtastic Don't be sad, it was just New Years! [in place of @bjb568 botling]
3:06 AM
@hichris123 You just double double pinged.
@bjb568 Tavern Law #0: The Tavern's rulebook is not a zero based array.
@bjb568 yay yay yay yay
@hichris123 That statement is false?
@hichris123 Hmm I wonder what to do to feel better...
@bjb568 ... <word-lawyering> Rulebooks != arrays </word-lawyering>
@Gemtastic sleep.
@hichris123 I kinda just woke up :/
3:09 AM
I mod flagged complaining about the comments.
@Gemtastic Well, sleep again!
Try taking a shower.
Anything that will make you feel better.
@bjb568 Well, I am coding. I'm working on the design for my final project for this course
But I keep hitting these tiny stupid things >_<
Like now a div doesn't wanna span over the site >_>
I never have problems with CSS.
I have mastered it.
@Gemtastic use a <span> to span stuff :/
Will that work on the div?
just making a pun, ask a question on SO if you are stuck
3:14 AM
Probably a dup.
@Sompuperoo I'm kinda demotivated to do that >_>
Since I actually wanna know why it's doing what it's doing
@Gemtastic b.c no more hats to earn?
@Sompuperoo Because "Don't take this the wrong way but I've see you on this site asking for help and making people explain themselves over and over until you feel satisfied with the answer."
I suppose I did take it the wrong way. :/
3:30 AM
@anorton Frank is one of top candidates for Moderator Pro Tempore at LifeHacks beta. But SE hasn't made appointments yet.
betcha can't find me there
unless you recognize me off of MSE
Well, I mean, the tree is kind of a giveaway...
Speaking of which, you're still frozen.
It's still winter
@Frank wrong, winter is comming
3:40 AM
Here, it's been winter for a couple weeks now.

Ah, Doorknob. I was hoping you'd make an appearance. Your resounding "No" answer to one of the related questions makes your opinion loud and clear. — Gregory Higley 2 hours ago

School day tomorrow.
Not doing a uni here.

@Fundamental yeah... how everyone ignores Jeff for half an hour.... priceless

Q: Should we have a policy about "too much downvoting"?

Jeff AtwoodWe've never had an explicit policy around downvoting -- users are free to, if they like, cast all their votes as downvotes. Whether this behavior is desirable or not is another matter. Now, we do discourage downvoting by making downvotes cost -1 rep to the casting voter. But, there's nothing in...

Been thinking about asking something on Meta.SE but worried it will be downvoted to hell—this is pretty meta-meta to be asking about here, but I feel like SE's chat software is in dire need of an update. The main SE software is polished and modern, but chat shows its warts all over the place.
@AlexisKing well...you need to convince community, so...What is the thing that needs to be updated? and Why does it need to be updated?
8:05 AM
@AlexisKing Main site software generates traffic and ad views. Chat is chat.
@DroidDev Chat is fairly functional, but, well... so is the user profile page, and they're spending plenty of time on that. Tags still use the old display, for crying out loud. The user interface is a mess and unintuitive, especially for new users. It "works," but just barely.
> chat is pretty dead development wise it seems :( -- Seth
@Fundamental Chat could be more useful if they made it more useful. Currently it's this weird little corner of SE that most users aren't aware exists. Or perhaps people prefer it that way?
8:08 AM
Oh no! :(
wait... THERE IS A CRAB ON @Uni!!!
@AlexisKing No, it's just that the developers are a finite resource, and SE have been putting them elsewhere for a long period of time. The dev who works the most on chat is balpha (hanging over to the right in the second row), but he does more than just chat... like, you know, hats.
all is right with the world, I'm sorry I said anything
@AlexisKing those are upgrades, not updates. And not functionality upgrades(from your comment, it looks like just UI upgrades).
8:11 AM
Okay, but seriously, though, chat could be so much more than it is now functionally. UX is a part of functionality.
@AlexisKing I think there were some small improvements to chat recently, so it seems it's been getting more attention. Don't lose hope.
I guess we can agree that SE chat is not the best chat platform that we have, but hey... stars.
@AlexisKing many users don't care to see the profile page changed, at least not changed in such a drastic way. If it works , it works.. no need to do another design change that really won't make things any better, but possibly worse
@Sompuperoo That's exactly my point. If they can improve the quite alright profile page, they can spend some resources making chat more useful/usable.
@AlexisKing Put forward some concrete suggestions for improvements on meta. Seriously. Not a vague "you guys should make the chat better".
8:13 AM
@AlexisKing that's what I am saying. You have to convince community that UI upgrades will improve functionality :)
@DroidDev Strictly speaking, one don't have to convince community of that... we are not the VP of Engineering by committee.
@Fundamental Eh, if the community doesn't agree and downvotes, your FR probably will get ignored with a low score.
@Fundamental actually, I think amount of upvotes will decide the course of upgrades and convincing community means votes. By convincing, I mean, concrete reasons, so that more people on SE are convinced that upgrades are needed and upvote the post.
This is what happens when you don't convince the community in a change:
A: noindex and nofollow for bad questions

UnihedroNo, I disagree that this should be implemented. Questions which cannot be redeemed should be dealt with, and not instead be banished from the search engine. Here's why: There is no need to reduce its source of getting views, as views expires close votes, and these questions (negative score, no...

Hi :)
A: How can I help a child stay motivated in learning to program?

zigenzI can't say I read all of the responses, but the first few saddened me greatly. VIRTUALLY NONE of the modern computing greats (think Gates, Jobs etc.) cut their teeth at such a high-level of abstraction (i.e. web based technologies). They all got down and dirty with the hardware. The go-to gur...

@rene could be interesting for the close vote review
@bummi Why does it exist on MSE?
Yeah, I saw the pattern emerge
@bjb568 Is that even an answer?
A: How can I help a child stay motivated in learning to program?

RachelDCongratulations to this young mind for already having an incredibly marketable skill at the early age of 14! (I'm a programmer so pardon me while I geek out). First of all, encourage this, it's a great skill to have! An entry level programmer can start at $30,000-50,000 a year depending on l...

Why doesn't that list come with devdocs.io ?
> the industry is very.... heavy... mainly because a programmer sits in one position and types all day... and night... and week....
@Unihedro No
I'd downvote twenty times if I could.
12:31 PM
@bjb568 Maybe the question should be closed as POB :)
-20 for stereotyping programmers as sitting in a position and typing all day, directly defacing the reality of a programmers' workplace. To cut short, meetings and planning and deployment doesn't simply involve sitting in front of the computer. To add, Stack Overflow isn't for "asking your peers for help", it is about "building the best answers for every professional and enthusiast programmers' question". If you're looking for help, consult Code Project, where their purpose is "to help programmers with their problem, not to make them feel stupid". Also, add devdocs.io. — Unihedro 1 min ago

I have no idea what is being asked there ^^^^

I am thinking about 110 guys who starred this. I wonder if its because they can't remember key combinations :/
@DroidDev Maybe they weren't guys.
1:41 PM
Is that on-topic?
@Frank lol, in that case, I am perfectly ok. Shhh..... I never said that :P
@JanDvorak I wasn't able to come-up with a close reason, plus, its too old. So, I didn't give a much thought
not programming related?
1:44 PM
@JanDvorak should we migrate it to super-user/android-enthusiast or should I just flag it as blatantly-ot?
Can't migrate it anyway
@DroidDev I think it's on-topic. It's directly about a tool that is used by developers.
dupe of same here
Is it used primarily by programmers?
@JanDvorak I use it on regular basis
...and many others too
1:46 PM
@DroidDev that it is!
I guess non-programmers use it too?
Who cast an undelete vote on this? :o (May Shog have mercy on the user...)
which one should be close as a dupe? Both of them have about same quality of answers, but, the new one has far greater number of votes
@JanDvorak not much of a use to them. I mean, you can't have google play store on emulator, so you can't have many uses of it either.
