What should I do for posts like stackoverflow.com/review/low-quality-posts/6879057? They answer the question, and the question is the problem.... so looks ok?
skip if not sure
@bluet ... that's not an answer to the question.
@hichris123 The OP says it doesn't actually answer the question. Also, the flag could be VLQ instead of NAA, which I take as "tried to answer, did not succeed".
(My practice on math is to delete unless there is a good reason to keep, but that's just me.)
1:09 AM
@Fundamental Oh I was referring to @bluet's message as not an answer to my question. :P
@hichris123 flag it as NAA :/
@Braiam On chat? flags @bluet's message as offensive better? :P
"What should I do...?" -- "Skip" does look like an answer.
oh look, this is pinned...
that duck...

did they forget to put an office space image in? meta.movies.stackexchange.com/questions/1501/…
those are very good artsy designs they did
@bluet Nope. It's just been used before:

Stéphane MartinI’m Stéphane, the new designer at Stack Exchange. First, I wanted to announce that this site is now starting the process of moving out of beta to become a fully-graduated site! Congratulations! Graduation and Your Site Design Graduation comes with a few perks. I have already begun work on your ...

It's not by Jin? oh, new designer. Looks promising!
Two sites that Stéphane designed shortly after joining SE are easy to recognize by the very generous spacing of question lists (Academia and The Workplace). It seems this trend did not continue, however.
i hear there's a sequel to joe dirt happening, can't wait could use more laughs

@bluet I only reckon 4-5 images, you want more!?

Many ugh, it's 9 and haven't done any homework.
1:59 AM
No, it's 8:59 @bjb568. GET IT RIGHT!
What if I told you you're off by a minute?
Says 9 here.
Ugh, it's 9 and I haven't graded any homework.
@bjb568 Actually time.gov says I'm 5 seconds ahead.
"Actually http" was better.
@Fundamental hehe can't you just feed things to robots?
2:01 AM
@bjb568 Why is this reminding me of The Homework Machine?
You mean, propose grading.SE, where homework gets posted and voted on? Neat idea.
@hichris123 Ha! I'm 300ms ahead.
@Fundamental ... thanks. ;P
@hichris123 Hm… IDK.
It horrifies me that I got the reference tho.
What, you didn't like that book?
2:02 AM
@Fundamental crowdsourcing homework grading since 2015...
@hichris123 no, it horrifies me that I once read books
... and this is why I have no faith in humanity anymore.
It horrifies me that you say that as if it's a bad thing
2:04 AM
Those kids nowadays...
Err, reading books, that is
@JanDvorak I know, right?
Yeah, I know.
@bjb obviously needs to read this:
Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury published in 1953. It is regarded as one of his best works. The novel presents a future American society where books are outlawed and "firemen" burn any that are found. The title refers to the temperature that Bradbury understood to be the autoignition point of paper. The novel has been the subject of interpretations primarily focusing on the historical role of book burning in suppressing dissenting ideas. In a 1956 radio interview, Bradbury stated that he wrote Fahrenheit 451 because of his concerns at the time (during the McCarthy era) about...
Q: Under which branch of mathematics do vectors fall into?

bolovWell... this is pretty basic. Under which branch of mathematics do vectors fall into? A quick search on the web revealed many kinds of vectors so what I have in mind are this kind of vectors: that for instance in a 3D space are represented as $\vec{v}_{(x,y,z)}$ (with the origin in $(0,0,0)$ ...

2:07 AM
@hichris123 watched teh movie
Much debate ensued, and then, later, the OP clarified:
> I am writing a data structure in C++ for vectors and I want to know under which namespace to declare them.
@bjb568 Actually, read The Veldt.
Another Bradbury story.
2:09 AM
You should also read the Gone series by Michael Grant. (I read it a few years ago, so my memory of it is a bit fuzzy, but I do remember really liking it.)
@Doorknob Never read it.
I like knowing though that I read series before they were cool. I read the Divergent books a couple years back (4?) and the Hunger Games books around the same time.
Book recommendations are off-topic.
@Fundamental Requests for fundamentals on a topic are off-topic.
@hichris123 "hi" is a greeting and does not belong on SE
Oh, by the way @Doorknob: if you ever have the time, read Michael Crichton's books. You've probably read one or two -- Jurassic Park is one, but all of his are super good.
2:29 AM
read teh internatz
English, please
Many "ughs" "ugh". Read the internets.
Not much better
@bjb568 ... why?

2:31 AM
... why?
Robert Cartaino on September 29, 2010

Stack Exchange is about questions with objective, factual answers. We’ve been crystal clear about this for as long as I can remember, even back to the earliest, pre-beta days of Stack Overflow. It’s right there in the standard Stack Exchange FAQ:

What kind of questions should I not ask here?

Avoid asking questions that are subjective, argumentative, or require extended discussion. This is not a discussion board, this is a place for questions that can be answered!

Thus, questions that are not answerable — discussions, debates, opinions — should be closed as subjective. It seems simple enough: Fact good; opinion and discussion bad. But why? …

> The folks at Moms4mom owned up to the subjective issue and came up with a set of principles to create useful subjective discussions on parenting: the Back It Up! Principle. Back It Up! means that your answers must be based on either:

Something that happened to you personally
Something you can back up with a reference
They talk about how “opinion, by itself, is noise.” They’re not saying that subjective opinions are to be avoided; they’re attempting to mold and shape their inherently subjective Q&A into something constructive, informative and helpful. As it turns out, there is an entire f
Sounds like how many of the other sites operate: e.g. science fiction requires canon.
Q: How widespread is the "back it up" principle?

Monica CellioGood Subjective, Bad Subjective refers to the Back It Up principle that was developed on an early SE site. I've seen this principle in use on UX (though I can't find an example right now), and citing sources or experience is standard on Mi Yodeya. Backing up an answer includes citing sources,...

2:43 AM
@bjb568 English, please. It's hard to understand you.
Also, no shouting.
@JanDvorak There's got to be a userscript to deal with that ;)

@Fundamental Is the realtime page working for you?
A: What is an accurate method to measure the C:N ratio of Bokashi pickled/composted kitchen waste?

J. MusserThis isn't the easiest process in the world, but you can do it. Personally, I'd call up a lab and ask if they could test it for me. Other than that, you would have to use something like a combustion process, like a CHN analyzer such as this one (expensive), or use a mass spectrometer to ionize an...

Q: how do you get a 100 on a test

helenhow do you get a 100 on a math paper if you got all of the questions wrong on the test and yous till get to go to the next grade and you didn't pass the star test?

no one will understand that one^^
@hichris123 I can open realtime page... if it's considered working
@hichris123 Yes, it does. The HTML page, and the polling URL http://stackexchange.com/questions/poll-realtime that my script uses.

@AndrewT. But does it update? I think the websockets are borked, seeing if it's just on my machine or an actual issue.
> WebSocket connection to 'ws://qa.sockets.stackexchange.com/' failed: Error in connection establishment: net::ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT
websockets are indeed borked
Someone go tweet to StackStatus.
Not sure what to do with this trolling if anything. (webapps)
3:19 AM
@StackStatus WebSockets are borked. :(
y do people tweeter
is everybody a twit?
does tweeter make people twit?
I never figured out how to actually use the ws: thing, but saw that that URL returns the information I wanted, and used it instead, sending a request every 5 seconds. Works fine.
you use JS
new WebSocket()
But what if we don't want to use JS?
(See github.com/KeyboardFire/stackexchange-chatty for an example of WebSockets in Ruby)
But if you just want to poke around JS is easiest.
@Doorknob ur bot iz useful
3:26 AM
See, if I could, I would give it room owner and make it kick anyone who used the letter "r" directly after the letter "u" in a single 2-letter word.
Smokey is dead for now, due to websocket issues. @Fundamental you're in charge of spam detection. :P
Ur kasdim

@Doorknob wat, they changed it to "this post is deleted"
@RyanCavanaugh you might want to weigh in on this: meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/283358/…
Just came here to say websockets are borked on my end... glad I'm behind on the news. :)
^ user probably should be destroyed for being ~10 years old.
> i dont know why it dowsn't let me publish my question (it says something about quality standards...). so i'll write know some crap so it will let me post it. ignore it. (Source)
I don't understand people... "Hm, I can't post my question because it doesn't meet quality standards. I got it! I'll append some crap to get around the restriction." :\

@bjb568 Many of the top 10 users on Math.SE go through the review queue and vote to "Leave Open" everything except some exact duplicates. Your guy looks quite varied in his responses compared to a couple users I just looked at.
5:01 AM
@anorton what's math have to do with anything?
@bjb568 Math has to do with everything.
oh ok
@bjb568 You were complaining about one particular (potentially) abusive reviewer, and I decided to participate in the scar wars by complaining about having a bunch of (potentially) abusive reviewers in the top 10 users on my "home" site.
That always works quite well... :P
5:07 AM
Did SE just mess up their notification server, or it only affected on Android app... I got 3 push notifications which I already read and open :|
probably just a random error. whistle
On the plus side, the real-time tab is updating for me now, so web sockets must be back.

@bluet OP is confused by different roles. Asking about mods, linking to Anna Lear...
@SuperstarGamer "this mostly has to do with JAVA networking" - Firstly, nothing about your question even lightly hints of anything to do with Java, the programming language, and I'm pretty sure JAVA is not a separate language. To continue, with no (research / attempt) effort shown at all, this does not fit into our standards of questions on the site as defined by the tour. And finally, your question is ambiguous, it's really hard to tell what you're asking for (even after my edit), and hence voted to close. — Unihedro just now
@Fundamental so s/he just linked to a random mod.. kinda weird question for someone with only 1 account on meta.SE created today... maybe it's a mod on some site that didn't want to post under their real account
Or it could be Anna Lear herself hinting at a raise... SE has money now.
